Alright Kudos and stuff. Let's get this kicking.
First off apologies in advance — I think I may have missed a few noms this week. Maybe in future we can have a rule where noms...
— Have to be delivered by email (I have no way of keeping track of noms sent on twitter or in person) — And there has to be the word 'nom' or 'kudos' in the subject header.
This will just make it easier for me to keep track of them all. Thanks dudes and dudettes.
Alright onto da nom bombs.
Splicer was first, and asked to be address as 'Splicer the Magnificent: The Queens personal Sorcerer and Massager of Feet'. I definitely think that's worthy of a tag.
I’d like to nom DC for 3 points because I feel we haven’t really connected with him in the house-oh wait. Wrong vote. But seriously, I’d like to nom DC for just being an awesome voice in TAY. He’s always got a kind word and a pat on the back(or butt) for TAYbies. Now we gotta get him to a meat, pronto! Also, noms to Tofu for coining the term ‘ProTAYzoa’…like Chupa-thingy, it has a nice ring to it. That’s it for noms, for now.
What the hell is a ProTAYzoa? I'm lost man. I'm old and I don't understand things. #oldmanserrels
Time the GKN (Greenius Kudos Noms). This guy is so consistent with his nommage that he gets an acronym. Usually Greenius noms are laden with mental font switches and words and stuff. Today? All I got was a list of names!

Puppylicks put up a good fight for the 'even more bizarre nom email than Shiggy award'.
Hark, Mark! How's things? I know I haven't sent a nom email in a while but it's friday and I have a big weekend planned, so I'm pretty pumped about it yes I am. I have not one but TWO nominations to dish out this week, so people better strap themselves in because this is gonna be BAWS.
ONE om nom nom goes to Shane (a.k.a. Shane) for sending me a copy of Brütal Legend and asking nothing in return. Shane, you are a damn good man. A hard man, but a good man.
and THE OTHER on nom nom does to D.C. for his SMURFYDOG'S PRE-EMPTIVE TAY CATCH UP BRIEF updates. It's a genius idea for TAYbies who are super busy and miss TAY a few pages at a time (like me, yes I'm busy at work, honest!). He also has Pey'j as his gravatar, and that is cool in my book. ROOCKET BEEWWWWTSS!
Righto mate thats it for me, got an oktoberfest celebration to head to tomorrow and it is SO FREAKIN STIEN TIEM! :D
Shiggy himself actually blew my mind by not using all caps. First time for everything.
MARK. ITS THAT TIME OF THE WEEK. KUDOS TIME. HERE THEY ARE IN NO SPECIFIC ORDER: 8. Doc What for being the rude, crude, bearded dude who has helped out with the whole Potaku gig for ages. Also for making NyanShiggy a reality. His videos from the EB Expo are amazing too. 72. The community as a whole is awesome too, without their support on everything Potaku, theres no way we could have got to where we are now and do what we wanna do with the show. So thank you everyone, you're a good bunch of kids. 671817262. Charles Martinet for recording AS MARIO for the show. Such a nerdy thing but me and Doc walked away after he recorded WITH CHILLS. BUT NOT THE SCARY ONES BUT THE HOLY SHIT THAT WAS AWESOME ONES. 1. You Marky Mark for all the support youve given for me and Doc. Knowing you had our back on all this helped us out and gave us confidence to go ahead and do Kotaku proud. -13. Me because why not. PEACE OUT HOLMES.
Thanks Shiggster, but I didn't do anything — it was all you guys. I'm very proud to be part of such a great community.
Oh, and since I haven't put it up yet — here's another great Potaku vid from the EB Expo.
Splicer said his noms were last minute, but they weren't really! Welbot is the true king of the last minute noms. Come to think of it, I haven't received any noms from Welbot. I guess they'll come in five minutes after I've hit 'publish'!
(Love you man)
Oh, yeah, Splicer's noms...
Last minute noms for Shane for being an all round awesome guy and kickstarting the TAYlend project.
And speaking of Shane here are his noms:
Sorry for last minute nature of this nom, but ... okay, there’s no excuse. I’m just a lazy sod.
DC is the man of the week. He has started to do the impossible. SUMMARISE TAY. To assist those who are absent for periods of time, and prevent anybody from missing anything. What a concept. And executed with such style. Nom of the week.
Hope you have a great weekend
Alrighty then — I'm going to give this one to DC! Well done mate, and have a great weekend everyone!
