The Community Spotlight 2022.04.10 – Giant Bomb

Hello, everyone. Welcome to another edition of the Giant Bomb Community Spotlight! I, @zombiepie, am once again honored to be your host as we look back and enjoy the best community-created works from the past week! The big announcement is that THIS WEEKEND is the Giant Bomb Community Endurance Run! From April 8th through the 10th, catch the HOT ACTION on the Giant Bomb chat! If you are interested in watching EVERY community-stream, consider heading over to explosiveruns.com! If you are feeling especially considerate, check out our team page and consider donating to some of the team members that did not quite reach their fundraising goals!

Consequently, I want to thank everyone in the Giant Bomb Community that donated to my charity drive last week! For those of you that do not know, I (ZombiePie) will be participating in the GBCER and need help reaching my fundraising goal. Even if you can only spare a small donation in the single digits, every bit helps. Right now, I’d like to be able to reach $2,000 before the end of the event. If you can’t donate, please consider spreading the word.

In terms of an update on the Bug Reports, we have two important announcements. For those of you that have noticed missing shows on the “Shows” tab on the site, keep reporting shows and features that are missing! Rorie re-filed a ticket about the issue, but everyone should continue to scour the site for missing content. For those of you that have issues with the “All Videos” premium RSS Feed, a community member noticed something that you should read up about if that is an issue that has been plaguing you. Finally, for those of you still getting logged out, the issue seems to be persisting with those that use consoles to check out the site. If you are using a desktop browser and still experiencing the log-out bug, please use the previous link to file a bug report.

Finally, there’s no doubt that there have been some questions about the state of premium and the community’s ability to discuss their concerns about premium. As a member of the Moderation Team, I can assure each and every one of you that if you have legitimate concerns about premium and share them without directing hostility or toxicity to community members or staff, you have nothing to worry about in terms of what you post on the site and moderation.
