It was Friday and their was much rejoicing and drinking of Pepsi Max. Also there was chocolate. Welcome to Community Kudos.
Look I think the secret is out if it was ever a secret to begin with. Last night I was honoured to take part in Potaku, which is the Kotaku Community podcast, as if you didn't know! I just wanted to give my own once off Metal Gear Kudos (which is a thing I just made up) to Doc What and ShiggyNinty for putting it all together, and making this thing a reality. It's one thing to talk about doing a podcast, it's another thing to actually commit to the idea, and follow through with it. I'd also like to give a big thanks to everyone who took the time to appear on it. What an awesome thing it is to be part of such an awesome, committed community.
I bestow upon all of you Metal Gear Kudos from Metal Gear Serrels.
After appearing on the show last night with super special guest Harli, I got this cool email from the man with the most beardiest beard in beardland, ShiggyNinty (the beard also has bacon in it).
Right, remember when Doc What said "Potaku can't be used as a kudos reason anymore?" WELL TO HELL WITH THAT!
First noms is to everyone who has suggested an idea, been on the show, listened, subscribed, shared and helped in any way at all. Without that we wouldn't be doing the show at all! Seriously, thanks everyone for it all, means so much.
Second is to you Marky Mark for supporting the show and help getting the word out. I write some absolute crap but hey you post it anyway!
Third is to Doc What for editing and co hosting the show with me. I don't think you'll truly appreciate the time and effort he puts in to making the show so good until you are on and here the final version. Without him I probably wouldn't be doing this so thanks to him.
And lastly me because I'm so great.
Oh and don't think we forgot about your birthday Dan.
Yeah Dan. Elvis just sang happy birthday to you. Dig on that.
Not too many nom emails coming this week, which is sort of a relief for me after having to sort through ponderous amounts previously. We had a nom for Mashaa for being "an all round nice guy on the twitters".
And a nom from AlexPants, who was in a rush.
OH GOD I NEED TO CATCH A BUS IN THREE MINUTES LETS DO THIS.
Nom for the good Sottish Doctor, because reasons. Also because as you may have noticed he's taken charge of mass group emails for organising a lot of meats and stuff and I want him to know that I appreciate that!
Yesterday was Dan's birthday so happy birthday to him.
HAVE A GREAT DAY MY PEPSI MAX-INFUSED FRIEND
And finally Scree dropped some noms, and — for the second week in a row — actually managed to confine them to one email!
I would like to nominated Numbers, Bish, Blaghman and Steve-o. Something happened on teamspeak which upset me and as the community usually does, they checked up on me knowing that I would most likely be distressed.
They also helped me face me fears because I am horrible at anything that vaguely resembles assertion.
If I could uber nom them, I would or give them presents, I would, but I can't, so all they have is gratitude.
So that's that. A bit shorter than usual, but year. At least I have leftover pizza at home, so there's that.
Congrats to Doc What — who will probably be busy editing Potaku right now — you are the winner of this week's Community Kudos!
STOP PRESS NOMS
Noms at the last minute are bad enough, but last minute noms on TWITTER! Hahahahaha!
Alright — Welbot wanted to nom Strange and Sughly for the awesome date they went on last weekend!
