Let's make your 2010 blogs count! Make sure your About Me pages have text even if it isn’t much. When users don't have an About Me page filled out, they are less likely to be featured because the member spotlight on the forums page highlights this information.

If you want to know what attracts staff to your blogs, read about how to get featured in the Soapbox, because it describes how the member spotlights are chosen.

On a side note, I plan to do some weeding out of Soapbox users in a couple of weeks. If you have the Soapbox emblem in your profile, check to see when you last flagged an editorial blog. If it is has been more than a year since you flagged an editorial blog, it’s highly likely your Soapbox access and emblem will expire.

For those of you who have asked about an emblem for this activity, I have contacted the design staff to see if they have any time to create an emblem or two. I can't make any promises just yet. If they do get around to creating an emblem, it won't be ready for at least two weeks. I'll see if I can get a confirmation about this soon. Happy 2010!

Congrats SolidTy. Although I've never read any of your soap box contributions, most likely because I'm fairly new, I'm looking forward to your upcoming work.

Congrats to SolidTy, and all those runner-ups, who then therefore received extra points. I don't know about you guys, but 5,000 points was the equivalent to a 7-8% boost at level 30, which is pretty good. Thanks Gamespot. :)
