Awesome g1s of 2012
2012 was an epic year on ScrewAttack thanks to a plethora of great g1s. This is where I shall praise all of the great deeds of many great g1s of this year.
Woodyman certainly continues to live up to the name of being a g1 of the year even though it's 2012. He has still been going strong doing the things he does best: pretty much everything.
After I hosted the Season 2 of the Titanium Man of Flash Gaming, Woodyman quickly took back the helm and made it better than ever with having about 50 something contestants. Since I hosted one season, I KNOW just how time-consuming it is for him to continue that great contest and I praise him for that.
Woodyman also continues to be the man in charge of the g1 Spotlight, a massive blog that praises the work of many g1s EVERY SINGLE WEEK. Since there are 52 weeks in a year, this means that he has helped to edit 52 blogs (plus actually research and create a bunch himself when times are needed). Again, I myself have helped to research for this project a few times, and it is highly time consuming to do so. Having to research AND write the whole deal in a short amount of time is no small task. BUT! The results are most certainly worth it since the Spotlight continues to flourish (and be entertaining to read) to this very day.
Oh, and I have only just begun. He also brought back Literary Luminary over the year and has hosted multiple g1 Tinychat parties during certain holidays. He also enjoys collabs with others and creates hilarious and enjoyable Top 10s on a regular basis. As if that's not enough, he also is a very active g1 member in blogs, Twitter, shows, and in the forums. Lastly, he also is the first g1 to ever get someone off the ring in the Royale Rumble. Like I said earlier, Woodyman pretty much does everything. He could put Guile to shame.
Ferret75 has been one of the most positive g1s of 2012, and he is very active to boot. His many blogs also add a whopping amount to the community as well.
Ferret75 often has great conversations with g1s over Twitter and other events and isn't afraid to help out if it's needed. Talking with him over vide game topics is most enjoyable. Ferret is generally a very nice g1 to be around and he always seems to add a level of good atmosphere as well. He is also an active forum user as well.
Ferret75 enjoys writing and the amount of blogs he shares on this site show it. I can just imagine the massive amount of time/work required to make these fantastic blogs and its very generous of him to provide us with such great work. It astounds me to this day of just HOW much great thoughts and ideas he has over Majora's Mask. But Majora's Mask isn't the only thing he discusses--he talks about book reviews, Sonic, Ecco the Dolphin, and much more. I urge you--no---COMMAND you to read his material and to support his work. ....please?
Not only does Ferret75 create elaborate blogs on a constant basis, but he also creates highly entertaining videos and playthroughs of his favorite games. However, Ferret75 goes the extra mile and even takes on g1 challenges on a constant basis. (From what I recall,) he has managed to conquer many of them with no sweat just like the awesome g1 he is. Indeed, Ferret75 has gone above and beyond over the course of 2012.
The Stickman is someone that, even though he may have had some rough times with the blogging system or have had some other bumps on the road with the site, he still continued to make fantastic blogs, reviews, and comments simply on his appreciation for the g1 community and for entertainment during the whole of 2012 and I respect him for that. He has determination that is most inspiring in ScrewAttack.
The Stickman has done more than a lot for the community over 2012, including movie and game reviews, the Gimpy Awards, contests, SGC promises, and his Space Penguin comic that I think deserves far more attention than it has. He interacts regularly with other g1s over Twitter on a near daily basis and brings a level of humor that others enjoy. Enough to the point that I seem to enjoy chatting with him over a load of subjects even if it means that we will continue to have Twitter battles. (We are unofficial rivals.) He continually pours his interesting thoughts to his work and he often gives out advice to others. If he feels that something isn't going right, he will quickly share ways and ideas to improve it.
I have to admit that The Stickman has been a big part in my 2012 ScrewAttack experience. If it wasn't for him, I have to admit that probably a good chunk of my projects and blogs wouldn't be produced. For instance, a few of my blogs were requests from him that turned out to do well, and his Space Penguin comic gave me some inspiration to the do the Halloween comic, and I thank him for that.
Seeing how he probably has seen even more movies and has played more games over the holiday break, I can't wait to see what he has in store for 2013.
Flapperdoodle has been such a warming and helpful g1 to others that he will do just about anything to have a grand collab with any g1 as much as possible. He is very much one of the "community g1" of the year in that regard.
Most recently he has helped out the the g1 features by compiling that gargantuan list of the community's top ten Wii games. Again, I can imagine the amount of effort placed into that thing. It's a beast. Also, he continually makes great blogs in his series that are always a joy to read and I do believe that they deserve more attention....especially his Perfect Platformer series and such. He also reviews countless of material and there is much depth into his writing. Clearly, he puts much time and effort into his work.
Flapperdoodle, perhaps most significantly, also hosts a great g1 podcast called Sidetracked. This g1 podcast discusses over many great blogs/videos g1s have produced over the week. Again, I can imagine the amount of effort it has taken to host and be a part of a podcast of that ambition week after week. The podcast is also great too so I urge you to look into that if you have the time.
Flapperdoodle has taken a part in other g1 projects and also interacts with many g1s over Twitter. He is a very friendly g1 to hang around with and other g1s should look up to his great actions.
Canadian Brony is one of the most helpful and positive new g1s that I have known this year.
Ever since day one, he has been pretty much a rising star in the g1 community. Over the course of the year, he has been more active on multiple places on the ScrewAttack page and what it has to offer. I noticed that he has been taking a bigger part in the forums over the course of 2012 and that he has participated in a ton of community projects. He is a major participant of the Community Lists and he also has appeared as a guest in the Randumb podcast. His first successful series of blogs started with FVGC (or Favorite Video Game Character) where he talked with other g1s over their favorite characters in games. Since then, he has had a larger impact on the site.
He has also been more active on the forums and on Twitter over the course of the year. He adds much to certain threads in the forums and in many conversations with other g1s. He comments often on other people's work and offers much encouragement to others.
Yes, it's obvious that we may have....different preferences but he's still a fun g1 to talk to and I know a good g1 when I see one and Canadian Brony is one of them....even if he did give me a certain punishment.
Jetz.acx put forth a highly ambitious goal for 2012 with the g1 Features and g1 Digital Forecast projects and good golly, did he succeed. Not only that, but he is a mighty fine active g1 member as well.
I consider Jetz.acx to be the technology wiz on ScrewAttack and he often uses his skills to help out on video/sound editing, banners, and any other knick knacks that add to the site and to g1 material. He gives out lots of advice to others if they wish to start on a great and entertaining blog. His blogs still help me out to this day and I urge you to read them even if you believe that you are a blogging pro because his advice certainly has helped me to spruce up my material over 2012.
His work is very impressive and it goes to show just how much effort he puts into his videos that he does on a constant basis. He always enjoys g1 involvement with projects and he helps to spread the word about these. He has also been a massive help on the g1 Spotlight on multiple occassions as well.
I recall that whenever there is a time crunch to get things done, then he will be glad to help even he does need to. This little spark of helping others is something that help make a great g1, and Jetz.acx is pretty much the embodiment of that.
It is unfortunate that he has backed down from g1 Features (for the moment at least) but I can understand how time-consuming such a massive project can be. I hope that g1 Features will still continue to be great and that Jetz.acx will have a well deserved rest for his hard work.
2200 is much like Flapperdoodle: doing the impossible and pulling massive and impressive collabs with a myriad of g1s and with helping out with the ambitious g1 Features.
He has been the leading component behind the inspiring g1 Community lists of all sorts. Again, I can imagine the amount of collaboration and work involved to be able to do these ambitious lists and I urge you to check them out. ....In fact....I'm sure that this entry in of itself will be a part of his newest community list and I'm glad that I could be a part. Or better yet, I'm glad to have been a part of his many other lists as well and that many others have helped to make the community lists to be as great as they are.
2200 also helps out in other g1 projects (especially g1 features) and any content that he has produced is always great. He shares links from g1 content as well and is a friendly g1 in general. 2200 also is a frequent forum user and takes part in the forum games (he has 64% of all posts in that games, which is mighty impressive) at a regularly basis and help make that section of ScrewAttack a very enjoyable part. In fact, I'm sure that many people have joined the forum games thanks to him (including me), which is great. I also recall 2200 consistently sharing links on g1 events and other such important community projects. 2200 is certainly an awesome g1 when it comes to 2012 and I'm sure it shall be the same for many years henceforth.
Werdman24 keeps on keepin' on. He kept on being an active member of ScrewAttack over many events (such as the TMoFG for one) and he enjoys intereacting with other g1s as well over Twitter.
Werdman24 is a g1 that is not afraid to get involved in community activities whether it's participating in contests or streams. He shares many links to others work to spread the word and he isn't afraid of taking part in projects/tournaments. ....He also tends to be quite well at them too since his skills in gaming can put mine a run for their money. He has a great sense of humor and adds much to conversations on Twitter and in many comments over others' work.
He is a big part in Tom the Iron Man's streams and also takes part in other SA streams or events such as Screwin' Around as much as possible. He took death counts in Tom's Battle Kid runs, for one, and I'll tell you right now that keeping up with death counts on a game like that is far from easy and takes some dedication. Additionally, he plays games (mostly SF3) with other g1s regularly and always gives people a challenge.
Tom the Iron Man
Tom is THE Iron Man of ScrewAttack. Tom has set more than a pristine example for a g1 in 2012 by consistently commenting, playing with other g1s online, giving help to others in times of need, and streaming regularly and pretty much just having a great time with other g1s.
Tom always is such a positive influence on this site that it is no wonder that he has won g1 of the year for 2012 (again, congratulations!). So much so, in fact, that I'm pretty sure that he was a major factor for the SGC kickstarter to reach over the magic number of $100,000. He consistently gave positive support for others and gave advice to those that needed help in donating. I recall how the kickstarter didn't accept Paypal or something and others were confused in how to donate at the time. Tom offered to help those that had this type of problem. Tom's optimism the whole time probably was the main reason why the kickstarter succeeded. In other words, SGC3 may not have happened without him. Not that's pretty big.
Tom also encourages g1 interaction and he succeeds with this by having a stream where many g1s can chat/battle with each other over the newest game/demo or Street Fighter 3. His streams are always entertaining I think that other g1s have a fun time as well. Extra points given to him on 2012 for attempting Battle Kid as well.
Tom also helps others often if they need help with something and he enjoys having coversations with other g1s often over Twitter. He also shares many important links and details over the hottest SA material that the crew has to offer to spread the word about the site. Indeed, Tom may possibly put Mr. Stark to shame.
Alpha Unit, much like in 2011, has been a very active g1 since day 1.
Most notably for 2012, he has played a big role in the g1 Interviews on a weekly basis. From my memories of Skype conversations with other g1s, while they are highly enjoyable and are lots of fun, they DO eat up TONS of time. A simple conversation can take many hours. Editing these conversations by deleting loads of timestamps also takes up time. Add this up with how often Alpha Unit has produced these interview blogs and it is quite mind-blowing as to how much effort he has put in to provide greatness to the community. Alpha has also posted many other blogs with humor and entertainment that has certainly added to the community section of ScrewAttack.
And that's not all! Alpha Unit also talks with many g1s over Twitter and his sense of humor is one to be desired. Alpha's humor adds much to the great atmosphere of SA conversations and SA wouldn't be the same without him. He also is very active when it comes to commenting on g1 material and I'm pretty sure that he tries his best to comment on every blog that he can. His ambition is most inspiring for me and probably other g1s as well. Here's hoping that he will continue to deliver great content for many years afterwards.
Lousy Tactician not only is one of the most impressive commenters on this site, but pretty much anything he pours into the site is just flowing with energy and commitment over 2012.
He takes part in streams such as Screwin' Around often as well. He also has many conversations with g1s in other community sites such as Twitter (and is very friendly, I might add).
He provides great comments on other peoples' work that are just filled with an overabundance of thought put into them and he comments on many various g1 articles regularly. He is a very active g1 on the site and takes part in many community projects of all sorts. One example is him being a host many times for the podcast Randumb where it is always fun to hear what he has to say. Additionally, he has played a big role in the ambitious and awesome Death Battle Fan posts. He certainly knows his stuff and he isn't afraid to give out much needed detailed information. He also puts much effort into his content in the Death Battle Blogs (and many other works) and I feel that it adds much to the SA content indeed and that SA wouldn't be the same without him over 2012 (and beyond).
For regularly posting blogs on Screwattack and for being an active member in the forums. He also interacts regularly with g1s on Twitter. To be honest, I have to admit that his writing style probably influences me in a way in my writing as well.
For being a great host of the Randumb g1 podcast over 2012 and for being a generally positive g1 to be around with. I can just imagine the amount of work it took to conintually coordinate and create the show.
For being a superb g1 on the Forums and for creating some incredible (and unfortunately underlooked) blogs on this site. He gives out loads of detail within his thoughts in his blogs and I really believe that they need more views than they have at the moment since they are some of the best I have seen. On the forums, he certainly helped me with patience while he was hosting a mafia game and I can see him helping others too.
For creating great (and helpful) blogs on this site and for commenting often. He also has been a very friendly g1 over the past year. I urge you to read his thought-provoking blogs if you have the chance.
For creating entertaining videos on this site and for being eager to work with others. His blog series is also worth mentioning, since his opinions in them are very well-thought out.
For consistently staying on top with the news on this site. All of those news articles he shares add up and I can imagine the amount of work altogether it takes to do it so quickly. Therefore, I give him much praise for his efforts over the year....it's very impressive to me.
Even though I'm not a fan of the you-know-what show, I do know a good artist (and a good g1) when I see one, and Chaos15 has certainly been one over the year. His comics are witty, he likes to help out on collabs, he regularly comments on others' work, and he enjoys taking requests from other g1s. Something must be said when he states that he will create artwork based on 100 g1s.
Retrofire7 is an extremely positive g1 member and encourages others to make material (to me at least....but I'm sure he has helped most of us out as well over the course of 2012). He comments on other g1 content regularly and talks with other g1s regularly in very enjoyable conversations. He also helps out many other g1s over Twitter and pretty much acts as a "driving force" for others to keep at in times of need.
He certainly has helped me much over the past year, and thanks for everything.
For creating entertaining (and interesting, I might add) videos regularly on this site and for being a positive influence on the community. He intereacts regularly with others and constantly seeks to give out help. I hope that his show will continue to do well in 2013 since I enjoy it greatly.
For being a positive g1 and for wanting to work and play games regularly with others. His Pokemon Talk blogs are certainly more than worth reading as well. (In fact, I have one in the works with him that shall be done sometime in the near future.)
For being a positve community member and for interacting with other g1s on Twitter.
For being one of strongest new g1s I have seen over 2012. He interacts greatly with other g1s on Twitter and has been a positive influence to others
In the beginning to middle months of 2012, this g1 was very active and was willing to do collabs with others regularly (from what I recall). Enough to the point that I wish I could hear more from him...
For being a great contestant in the Titanium Man of Flash Gaming and for being a positive and confident g1 over 2012.
For probably being one of THE most active commenter on this site on community content that I can recall. He often gives out great advice to to others and is a very positive g1 over events.
For being a superb member of the Death Battle fan group and being a positive and helpful g1. He certainly gave me loads of help over the coordination of my Halloween DB comic and I can foresee him being just as helpful with others too. He is truly an ultraguy.
For continually creating epic remixes for the g1s and being a positive influence over the community. I urge you to check out his music if you haven't already.
For being an active g1 member and for being a great contestant in the Titanium Man of Flash Gaming.
For ineracting regularly with g1s over Twitter and on the Forums. He consistently creates banners and signatures for other g1s as well.
For interacting with other g1s over Twitter and Forums regularly. He has been a positive g1 to others as well.
For being a grand artist for DB and for being willing to help out with others.
For being a very positive g1 and for giving me motivation to keep on posting content.
For being a witty and funny g1 over the year and for interacting with other g1s over Twitter.
For helping to raise money for charity in the Extra Life Marathon. Can't get much better than that.
For giving good insight on other's material and for intereacting with other g1s over Twitter.
For posting informative blogs, participating in collabs, and being a great g1 to be around with.
For being an active and positive g1 in the community. He also does collabs with other g1s and is most helpful when doing so.
For being a highly positive and active g1 over the year. He comments often and interacts with other g1s over Twitter.
For taking part in many challenges over 2012 and holding his own over TMoFG. He has also started to become more active over the community as well.
For being an active forum user, being an active g1, helping out in the g1 Spotlight, and for posting informative and helpful blogs. He takes great dedication in his material and he consistently comments on others' material. Keep it up Smoke!
For making fantastic MANLY blogs/contests that need more attention and for being a nice g1 in general. I was able to give out a great X-mas present thanks to one of his contests thanks to his generosity and again I thank him for that.
For being an active g1 and for posting lots of fantastic blogs over the year.
For doing extremely well consistently in the Titanium Man of Flash Gaming. Seriously, he has some mighty skills that can easily rival (and surpass) my own.
For creating tons of hilarious blogs and collabs over the months. He is a very active g1 member as well and comments on much. I think he also has been a major contributor to the g1 Spotlight as well. He talks with many other g1s regularly and he is one cool cat to be around. ....cool cat? I'm sure that Bigjoe could have thought of something better...
For consistently being a big part of the g1 Randumb podcast and for being an active g1. He takes part in many collabs and is a major factor in the forums. He has posted lots of blogs and videos over the year so I urge you to look into those if you can.
For doing remarkably well in the TMoFG over many weeks. Those eyes are glowing because of raw power!!
For also doing remarkably well in the TMoFG and for posting many blogs with much content. He is a positive g1s for others to look upon as well.
For a number of things, frankly. For one, he has posted some ScrewAttack magazines over the year and has been a massive community helper. Recently he has created the very ambitious video series that talks about other fantastic blogs on the stie as well as the Viewer. He participates with other g1s as well and even though he's going to cancel the SA magazines (I believe), I wish him the best of luck.
For possibly being the Forum user of the year and for being a great g1 that helps out in collabs. He also has been a part of the g1 Spotlight and shares the many great signatures that the forum people have created. He is a massive player in the forum games and the amount of dedication he has is stunning. SPOOOON!
For being a guy that has the most epic pictures. He created many great and hilarious gifs over the past months that will certainly make your day. He takes part in the chatrooms and other community areas and he certainly is one awesome individual that ScrewAttack simply can't be without.
For being a great addition to Tom's streams and for providing great commentary.
Because he's friggin' Dylan Toomey. Have you said HELLO to him recently?
Also, thanks to all g1s that have produced great content in videos, artwork, music, blogs, etc. over 2012 and beyond. It means much to me.
