This week's community kudos does not bring any postcards from Mark (sadface), so I decided to make it exciting by sprinkling glitter all over my keyboard before I started typing. Now there is glitter everywhere and Elly is going to yell at me when she comes into the office.
I thought I would kick things off with a cool photo I took when I was at E3 this year.
Look at all those Minecraft heads! They were giving them out for free! Unfortunately, I did not get one because I was rushing to an interview and there was a long line to get one. Man, I should have just not bothered with that interview and gotten me a Minecraft face hat.
Anyway, onto kudos!
Dire Wolf has nominated Hugo the Hungarian Barbarian for community kudos for "the trouble he's had with getting Dead Island and the hilarious story he told about it".
Jamesmag (who I had to email to confirm that he was, indeed, Jamesmag and not Jamesmac or Jamesmcusedmyhandle or SOME OTHER JAMES FROM THE KOTAKU COMMUNITY GOOD LORD HOW MANY OF YOU ARE THERE??) has thrown in a nom for BDKIAF for gifting him with a copy of Terraria on Steam. Ah, the generosity!
He's also throwing in a nom for Steve-O The Deve-O for re-writing "We Didn't Start The Fire" by Billy Joel for the Can'd Meat.
Bish has nominated a whole group for League of Legends-related shenanigans. One nom goes to f4ction "for driving a few community play nights forward, and putting up an impromptu Minecraft server when League was down for maintenance". A nom also goes to Tech Knight and Steve-O for slotting into the 'Team Captain' roles in the Kotaku vs Kotaku matches.
Bish also insists that he is allowed to "double nom" (sounds devious to me), and that second nom goes back to Steve-O "for some splendid posts".
Trjn is nomming Steve-O for his work on the Billy Joel song lyrics (that makes it sound as though Trjn is eating Steve-O, which is a thought that makes me both lol and cringe — I don't know how I feel about this). Jo has nominated Steve-O for the same thing!
Dearest Qumulys sends his noms to Lamboman for "always being an outstanding community representative on Kotaku and for always giving his time". Mr. Lambo man also gifted Qumulys with a copy of Need For Speed-HP on Steam!
Rocketman has a nom for Steve-O for not only that song, but... oh I'll let him tell the story: "Him and I live like four hours apart from each other and he very generously offered for me to be picked up by a mate of his to go to a LAN event. What a champ."
Aaaaand one last one from Hermes and Thoth. He is nominating A Lot Of People for wishing him a happy birthday this week. Here's the list! Bish, Jamesmag, Steve-O the Deve-O, Blaghman, Noobheadshot, Harli, Hugo the Hungarian Barbarian, Trjn, lambomann007, jamesmacusedmyhandle, NotoriousR, Chuloopa, welbot, Rocketman, The Cracks, Dire Wolf and Klutar.
The noms this week are all fantastic, but there can only be one winner, and that person is ... Steve-O The Deve-O! He wins on the grounds that basically everyone has nominated him. So yay! Hey Steve-O, send me an email so that we can organise for a prize to be sent out to you!
As for everyone else, thank you for another awesome week! Nominations for next week can be sent to Tracey[dot] lien[at] alluremedia[dot] com[dot] au. Have a good weekend!
