Community Kudos

Happy Friday chumsies. Welcome to Community Kudos!

[language warning]

Slim pickings from the nom jar this week. I guess everyone’s been too busy playing that f***ing, motherb***hing a**el**king Candies game. Pro motherf**king tip: don’t click that f**king link!


Speaking of Candies — I love this Vine that AlexPants posted earlier.

Also — this…

Onto the noms.

This week there were Oprah noms. The first came from Nomad, who dropped his Bee-Like Oprah noms with real flair, before switching beats to a more specified, chilled out style of one-to-one couch noms.

I swear to God I don’t know what the hell I’m typing anymore.

Mark! Nomad here, dropping in some noms from the middle of AF nowhere, NSW. I would like to send some Oprah noms to the greetest community on the net, you guys! And I’d like to send some special noms to Uncle Freeze S Preston (Icequire), and Shane “Nighthawk” Smith. In addition to being super generous blokes, offering up venues for meats, and giving away entire game collections at a time, these two guys are there all the time, whether its to offer support to somebody, or, more commonly, have a laugh at everything. Almost every post I see from them cracks me up.

Sent from the cardesk of Nomad, who totally wishes he had an awesome sig like freezes from the other day.

Oprah noms also came from the desk of Redartifice, who is going (possibly already left) to South Africa! Wow! Jelly.

Oprah noms to everyone for being wonderful people and creating a wonderful online community. Though we may argue (and eviscerate people who spoil Game of Thrones) you’re a bunch of nice and awesome people. Talk to you all in June!

Bro… you should totally go to Rocklands! It’s in South Africa!

Oh, I forgot. I’m totally the only person here who cares about climbing! This is a video game site! LOLOLOL

Beardy’s noms were among my favourites. I just like the style in which they were delivered is all.

Gonna nom some peeps, yo.

Strange. Dan!. Rocketman. Greenius. Cakesmith. AlexAndHisPants. redartifice. DC.

Reason: excessive radness.

The radness. It’s just too much. Ah cannae hannul it cappin!

Yo Greenius! How did the job thing go? I didn’t even know this was happening. I hope you got the job you applied for. Screw it — I’ll ask you on twitter!


Big thanks to everyone who helped out by answering my job questions and special thanks and noms to Ruffleberg, Red Artifice, Neinhandle and Inquisitorsz for checking over my resume and giving me protips.

35 gets a nom too for offering me free gaem

Yes, Greenius deliberately misspelled the word ‘game’.

Bloody Hell. I reckon Freeze might just be creepin’ up in the all time noms category. This guy and his Brisbane meats. Will I ever get to meet the Freeze?

Last weekend the Brisbane TAYbies had a Japanese food/Dungeons and Dragons/Movie meat at the ol’ @freezespreston homestead. It was all kind of awesome. I know I nominate this guy a lot, but here’s another one for Freeze. The guy’s awesome, always kind and hospitable opening up his house for us. I’d also like to nominate @sernobulus and @sughly. Best people evah!

I like Japanese food! I like movies! I don’t really understand Dungeons and Dragons, but I could be that annoying guy who slows up the game and asks everyone dumb questions. Everyone loves that guy!

Freeze also got a LAST MINUTE TWITTER NOM from Ser Nobulus for the very same partay!

Ser Nobulus
Just wanna send a quick NOM for Freeze because he is the best meat!

Truly Freeze is the best meat. Congratulation mate, you have won this week’s Community Kudos (AGAIN)!

  • I was totally that dumb guy when we played D&D.

    Congrats Freeze. A worthy winner if ever there was one!

    Way to go to the other nominees too and thanks for the nom, Beardy!

  • There’s a fair few of us trying to get D&D groups going and almost all of us are “that guy” that slows things down always asking about the rules. You’d fit in perfectly if things every got off of the ground.

    • I would advise trying the D&D boardgame thing we played at @freezespreston’s house. It really helps the noobs (which was all of us) understand the whole Pen and Paper D&D thing.

  • I swear I nommed shane but I forgot Mark is still doing kudos early so it would have arrived just as this was being published. /o\

    • I sent my nom in for Shane last week.. clearly it was missed all together 🙁 No love for Shane this week /o\

  • I forgot this got posted early now! DAMN IT!!! FREEZE GETS ALL TEH NOMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The dood’s a fuckin CHAMP!

  • Pretty sure Redartifice is in South America.

    Also Grats Freeze. I guess, as Kudos winnerer, you get to choose which of the continents Red actually ended up in.
