SPREAD THE WORD
Last years awards were fantastic fun and we would love to raise the bar even a little higher this year so please consider spreading the word on this via your social networks, blogs and forums (please don’t spam though folks as we don’t want to annoy anyone!)
***GET INVOLVED ON AWARDS NIGHT (An Evening in the Last Week of January 2016 – TBC)***
This year we are hoping to do something a bit more LIVE for awards night, and we’d love you all to get in the spirit, so we’re thinking Global Awards Parties!!!! Yep we want you and your gaming groups to dress up all fancy and crack open some cheap champagne and join us on awards night – if you are up for it and have a web cam you could also appear on the shows!
We haven’t worked all this out yet but we have a forum thread to discuss it and let us know if you are interested is here – oh go on you know you want to!!!
AND FINALLY, LETS THANK YOU GUYS
We’re not joking when we say this community is the greatest in the world (even cooler than 4chan! probably…) and yes we know we are a tiny bit biased. Anyway, this year we wanted to give some shout outs to community members who you believe deserve a little bit of credit for being such good sports. If you would like to nominate someone who helped you or entertained you or any other (Publishable) reason, hit up the little form below. This is not a competitive thing, but a bit more like little paper knighthoods for those among us who bring a little something special the the community.
Get Stuck In!
Ok guys. lets have some fun with this and hopefully you can help us spread the word to other gamers (and the companies too!) that awards season is kicking off! I can’t wait to see you all in your Suits, Tuxes, Dresses and Dickie Bows
