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.
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:Cube_of_MooN, Hungry_bunny, SophinaK, and Teufelhuhn!
