Beta and emblems and modlings, oh my!

Community News - Some behind the scenes, some in the scenes, and some adjacent to the scenes that you might not have seen before. Madness!GameSpot Forum Beta

We've been busy as bees in community-land lately, working on various projects to make your time on GameSpot even more spiffy. Some behind the scenes, some in the scenes, and some adjacent to the scenes that you might not have seen before. Madness!

GameSpot Forum Beta

This has been in full swing for some days now, showing off our forums kitted out to match the rest of GameSpot Wide. If you haven't already, please check out the beta at http://beta.gamespot.com/forums/index.html and tell us what you think of the forums embiggened. Quick note--if you're missing your profile summary on the beta site, don't worry, as it'll be making its return really soon.

Emblem Explosion!

It's new emblem insanity! We've got emblems for those who watched our Little Big Planet gameplay marathon (there were some code hiccups with the award mechanism for these, but don't worry, they're coming!), emblems for GameSpot's HotSpot and sports podcasts, a sweet Sunday Driver emblem for our habitual GameSpot chatters who get together to game, and not one but TWO Sackboy emblems from a UK contest. It's like emblem fever, and everyone's caught it!

New Community Moderators

Power to the people! We've brought some new community volunteer moderators on board, to protect and to serve. Valiantly they shield you from the nefarious internet elements that attempt to interfere in our lovely community. Conscientiously they moderate violations. Also, they are snuggably soft. Welcome them:

Yes, the LBP emblems were handed out. Be sure to check out the technical support thread for any status updates about marathon emblems.

Ok seriously.... your getting all worked up about pictures? i would hate to see what happens if ya get your hands on a funsaver. If the gaming community is pumped over a few icons then its time for most of us to get some sleep!

I watched more than 50% of the LittleBigPlanet marathon and I wonder whether I won an emblem for this, as I missed about 50 minutes because of other commitments. A few days back, I watched the entire replay of the marathon. It would be a shame that I did not earn this emblem as I tried to watch it live. I just wish that GameSpot is transparent in telling us on how long we have to watch a major game marathon in order to receive an emblem. I was disappointment that it did not give out an emblem for this year's Tokyo Game Show, even though I watched two out of three special On The Spot livecasts in their entirety. Now when will the changes be effective?

when do the new emblems go out or start? as for the lbp emblems - do people get both if they watched (full or partial) or is it tied to certain regions/areas?

I may be soft, but "snuggably" is debatable. :P
