Community News - 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
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.

Yes, the LBP emblems were handed out. Be sure to check out the technical support thread for any status updates about marathon emblems.
i still havent got my lbp marathon emberlem and i whatched it all live and even got 4 questions answered
When I got the marathon emblem it deleted my good taste and serious collector badges. (I want them back)
Collar badge stands for the military rank ,but how about the color of uniform? I have tried to find the answer in the www.dvdsetshop.com, but no.
Have all the LBP marathon emblems been given out? Because I watched it, but don't have an emblem yet.
Ok seriously.... your getting all worked up about pictures? i would hate to see what happens if ya get your hands on a funsaver. If the gaming community is pumped over a few icons then its time for most of us to get some sleep!
Bummer I missed the LBP marathon but that Sunday Driving emblem more than makes up for it. ( yes Caddy it is simply awesome)
I watched more than 50% of the LittleBigPlanet marathon and I wonder whether I won an emblem for this, as I missed about 50 minutes because of other commitments. A few days back, I watched the entire replay of the marathon. It would be a shame that I did not earn this emblem as I tried to watch it live. I just wish that GameSpot is transparent in telling us on how long we have to watch a major game marathon in order to receive an emblem. I was disappointment that it did not give out an emblem for this year's Tokyo Game Show, even though I watched two out of three special On The Spot livecasts in their entirety. Now when will the changes be effective?
when do the new emblems go out or start? as for the lbp emblems - do people get both if they watched (full or partial) or is it tied to certain regions/areas?
Hey - congrats Sara! I always knew you were mod material! Hell, I got so many mod friends now I might as well ask about it myself...
I have one of the very rare driving emblems, and it's definitely one of my favourites now:) Sunday Driving is the best!
Some nice emblems there indeed, congrats to the new mods and I'm extremely interested on those behind the scenes works about the community :)
