But make sure to move quickly because the final battle is Friday, so vote now!

-Belated Member Spotlight:
Last Friday JodyR posted a thought-provoking blog asking users what they wanted to see changed, while at the same time assuring those users that we would do our best to hear their voices and cries of help and try to fix and improve the things that you as users felt needed to be adjusted. This week's Member Spotlight goes to those brave individuals who over the weekend posted in her blog to tell her exactly what was on their minds. So congrats everyone. Your feedback is extremely important to the Community team here at GameSpot.

Well, that just about wraps things up for Monday. Be sure to check back tomorrow for Blog Bunker: Zombie Edition.
