What could be better? Another new AVGN episode might do the trick:
Finally, a new board on the AVGN wiki Forums to discuss and decide on improvements: the Wiki Projects and Criticisms board. This is where anyone, viewers and editors alike, can express what they want to see (or create) on the wiki. The majority will decide this by group discussion and a final vote tally.
By telling us what you think of the community's ideas, you'll be helping to shape the future of the wiki. Let's all make this a wiki by the Nerds and for the Nerds.
Until next time! -- Llirium 09:24, May 14, 2015 (UTC)
16th January, 2015 - A belated Happy Holida--(wait, that's too PC...)
Merry Fucking Christmas and a Happy New Year to all you Nerd and Cinemassacre lovers!
And with the new year, I've stopped sitting on my ass--err, resumed my duties after a well-deserved break. There's a slightly updated copy of the Formatting Rules for you to break, too!
Let's all work our asses off again this year for minimal compensation and little attention from our idols! (I'm talking to you: James, Mike. :P)
In all seriousness, I hope if you had time off it was happy. Glad to see the spirit of Nerdiness is still alive and well here!
Your benevolent dictator,
