Another Friday another buttload of chocolate ingested by me. Welcome to another Community Kudos!
This week has been a pretty rubbish one for me personally, mostly because I keep hurting myself -- specifically my fingers. I cut off half my nail along with a chunk of skin while chopping garlic, then I got a gnarly tendon injury while climbing. Now I can't go climbing for a week or so. :(
So yeah, it's been a bit rubbish for me personally. Hope it was a better one for you guys!
The awesome thing about this weeks nominations was the fact that almost all of the noms were from first time nommers! All except the noms of Lord Chuloopa.
Here was his awesome email that didn't make any sense. I still honestly don't know who he was nominating...
I haven't been on Kotaku this week more than twice. Busy as a Bumble Bee! (Are they busy? I sure hope so, otherwise i'll look like a bit of a twit)
Either way i'd still like to nom whomever has contributed most the community this week. Pretty simple, hey?
I'd say it's actually quite noble.
Hey - what about some of the new guys? I hear that McGarnigal is quite the catch, and loves a good lunch break. Also there's the other newish dude, NovaCascade. I think that's a type of beer. Everyone likes beer.
I'd like to nominate beer.
Thanks buddy - i hope everyone has been having an awesome week.
I still dream of you all.
So, what I'm getting from this is that Chuloopa likes beer and still dreams of us. I'm yet to have a dream featuring Chuloopa, but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
The first newcomer nom I received was from Scree -- but it left me curiously unsatisfied, and I'll explain why.
First she nominated Bish and Plainview for making her feel welcome as a newcomer to TAY. Awesome. Great nominations. But then it got a bit weirder, and I'll quote...
Blaghman, Trjn, Effluvium Boy, Bish (again ^^;; ), Jo, Notorious R, Lambomann 007, Rize and Bear blaster.
The reason is that they all helped me with a problem neighbour and his dog.
I want to know what happened here? Who was the problem neighbour? Why was he a problem? What did the dog have to do with it? I NEED MOAR INFORMAAYYYTION!
McGarnigal -- what a guy. We all know he has the best name and gravatar, but you might not be aware that he is a very quick answerer of queries! That's precisely why he was nommed by Edward. For quickly answering his query about adding Gravatars.
Responding to 'queries'. It's important, and a running theme in this week's Community Kudos. McGarnigal himself nominated Chris, AlexPants, Stephen, Dire Wolf, RedArtifice, Oggob, Masha2932 and MrTaco for helping him out in the Assassin's Creed Revelations Community Review. He also nominated HotDamn! for inspiring him to buy American Psycho on Blu-ray. Chuloopa's name was also mentioned -- but he specifically said it wasn't an official nomination because he's always getting nominated!
Gorzilla also dropped what I believe is his first nom, although I could be totally wrong. Apparently there was a bit of a Minecraft project going on, and Lucifer9783, his little brother Nos and Stevo The Devo were all involved in getting things up and running. Good job folks, it's been a while since I've visited the Minecraft server. Will try and make time over the holidays for sure.
Anyways, I'm going to wrap this up. If anyone else dropped some noms that I forgot, kindly remind me/shout aggressively in the comments below and I'll add them later.
This week's winner? It's McGarnigal. Congratulations and have a great weekend!

Edit: Last minute noms from Lamboman007 incoming!
Hey Mark, Just nomming Welbot for the mini-meat at his place last weekend. You should have seen all the food Welbot got for us! Vegetarian beef chunks, Vegetarian crab meat, Vegetarian mushroom balls(??), he sure knows how to put on a feast! Much fun was had at his place, and I learnt that button mashing really isn't that bad of a tactic in Mortal Kombat. I also learnt why the game was banned :P Cheers!
