Moderation Clarification Station Update
We've made a new announcement about our moderation policies this week and reopened questions about your moderations. The Moderation Clarification forum is a straightforward approach. Here, you can ask questions about moderations and read more about our new policies, including the recent news about the reinstatement of banned accounts (Also known as "Phase 3 - Resurrection").

Troll-asaurus Deadline Extended
The community has so far come up with a few great new names to call the Trolls of GameSpot. Now it's time to vote on the winner; head to this forum here and may the best name win!

SOPA Sponsor Quits!
On Wednesday, many sites went black and millions of people all across the Internet shared their voice in a stand against SOPA. And in a recent update to the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), Representative Lamar Smith has stated that "It is clear we need to revisit the approach," so thank you GameSpotters for taking a stand!

Member Spotlight

This week's member spotlight goes to nocoolnamejim for his blog about Skyrim Modding. He kind of needs a little help, so if you're knowledgeable in this area, let him know! As for the rest of you, we'd absolutely love to hear more about any of your modding experiences. Please send us a PM at GS-Community, if you post a blog with screenshots or videos.

Tip of the Week

Ever find that you miss your old GameSpot friends so much that you want to reach out and private message them--only to find out that they're banned? GameSpot is now reviewing bans made over the past 10 years. Our policies have changed. Why not have some older registrants return if they were banned for trolling? This rule is no longer mentioned in the Terms of Use agreement. This week, we announced Phase 3: Resurrection. GameSpot members can nominate banned users for possible account reinstatement. Read the announcement for further details.

If I was the King of Hell... I would bring in some air conditioners and turn down the heat. :P Also, the last link that is supposed to direct to the banned users announcement turns out to be a second link to the troll name thread instead.

If I was king of hell I would feed the people for a week with mysterious hamburgers and then tell them it was grilled human flesh :D

If I was the king of Hell, I would show the people all the knowledge and secrets of this world and then take it form them with laws like SOPA and others forever! :twisted:

No one rules in Hell, but if I did, to strike fear in the hearts of mortals, I'd turn Hell into a resort that no one could ever leave. It'd have the same routine every single day, so everyone would go insane from boredom!

If I was the queen of hell, I would give everyone every single video game they can every want. I'd give them their favorite platform of choice, surround-sound, no physical needs interfering with your gaming experience, everything you need. And then I would make each game have DRM that requires a constantly active online connection, and I would give them the most unreliable dial-up ever. :twisted:

I don't really have any idea what I'd do as the ruler of Hell - maybe require that it be dark all the time, and all the lights be red? Not very scary I guess. Anyway, I heard that Hell, MI gets thousands of people a year going there to get the "Hell" postmark on their tax returns. I think they also said you could pay to be the mayor for a day - that'd kind of be like being the ruler. There might have also been something about getting a deed to a square inch of land - but that might have been somewhere else. Anyway, fairly amusing all in all.

King/Queen of hell? I'd make others sit through horrible horrible obscure exploitation movies. (those who know Cinema Snob knows how horrible these movies can be)

Mmhh King of Hell? I'd let everyone fart grenades, the only meal in the world would be bean stew and I'd fill the whole atmosphere with some highly inflammable gas. And then I'd just sit back, wait and enjoy the show >:D

If I was the king of Hell then I'd shut down a major file sharing site that thousands of Android users use to collaborate and share ROMs that they've poured many hours into creating
