The GameSpotter of 2009 honor goes to SolidTy with 68 votes. He will be featured in the member spotlight until a new person is chosen this coming Friday.
Each vote gives the following users 1,000 points toward their profile level too! Those who voted for a GameSpotter of the year also received 5,000 points for taking the time to participate in this little activity.
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!
