    Hey guys,
    so this is what you can win.
    [​IMG]
    As you can see in the photo, there are 3 flashcarts to give away.
    1st Prize: Ak2i with 2GB microSD
    2nd Prize: M3i Zero
    3rd Prize: itouch DS(for DS/DSL only)
    4th Prize: Screen protectors for 3DS

    So I have been thinking about this for a while. Talked about it with Another World and she is too busy to deal with these. I was told I could hold this by myself [​IMG]. These are all used items, except the 3DS screen protector. Everything in perfect working condition.

    So what do you have to do? Write something about our staff members. What you like about them, and show your appreciation. It can be all staff members in general or someone you want to dedicate it to. I will write something about dice for no particular reason, and since he is no longer a staff member. Minimum of 50 words.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    That was just a short example lol.

    Deadline: 1st July(someone special's birthday lol)
    NOTE: I will be the judge, unless a staff member wants to take it over. Again, 50 words minimum [​IMG].
    ***SPECIAL NOTE***: I will not be shipping to these countries: Mexico, Italy, Brazil. I hope that doesnt offend anyone.

    I would like to dedicate the next few lines to Vulpes Abnocto. You always know how to say or even just post something that always brings a smile to my face and always brings me back to the Temp. As well he is a great staff around the Temp and very fair when it comes down to most thing. He keeps things active and interesting around here and keep the EOF enjoyable when he is around. He never takes things too seriously when they don't need to be and then at the same time has a serious manor about him that he knows when and how to use fairly when it comes down to things. Really I don't think I would be quite as active on the Temp if he wasn't around to brighten the place up.

    I'd like to throw some words out to TrolleyDave! He's always very cheerful. He's fun to talk to, to play games with, pretty much anything. He has a good sense of humor, and he posts good videos. He doesn't abuse his power, and he gets the job done right. He is very deserving of his global moderator position, and I hope he can be promoted to a supervisor someday [​IMG] Thanks for great job, Dave!

    FAST and Vulpes are one of the best staff members I've seen (Yes, I'm doing two cause they're that awesome.).


    FAST to me is one of the most intelligent and detailed person I've ever seen. His post are a good read, and he was the one that helped me with a guide I wrote. If you ever need any tech advice, go to FAST, he's the best man for such a thing. He's good mag staff, and rightfully so.

    Vulpes is good friend I have on here. He's given me a lot of advice on things when I first came on here. He's a great guy and a good friend, and he's fair when it comes to certain things.Though you may not want to touch his grill, since R2-D2 may malfunction and kill both of you. He's done enough making burgers for Vulpes.

    I would like to dedicate what I am about to say to Schlupi. I didn't know him for very long but our friendship began when he helped me fix my PSP. Schlupi was not rude or did not give me an attitude. He helped me and I helped him the best I could. We grew from there I guess. He is an awesome guy all around really. If you need help he will be there and help you if he can. He has had hard times and so have I and I am really proud he got promoted to TV Temp. I look forward to his videos and I must say he should be honored for having such a big heart.

    I dedicate my undying love to the staff here at gbatemp. From the time I signed up, to the present, I have been shown so much respect (and try to return the same) by the staff here. Most forums would have outright banned my for some of my behavior, but the staff here have shown me great compassion; something I would not expect from any staffer, on any message board. So to you, staff at gbatemp, cheers [​IMG]

    (if that doesn't win, you're all a bunch of soulless bastards!...j/k)

    You can talk about your experience here at the 'temp [​IMG].

    Also, I hope I am not offending anyone that I specifically mentioned about not shipping to Brazil, Mexico and Italy. Its just I have had terrible experience.

    @m3rox
    50 words please. or try to at least put some effort writing a few lines.

    Cheers

    I'm dedicating this to tj_cool. tj is life.I remember when I made him a sig it was terrible but he used it anyways.Even before he was staff he was cool and always helpful.Now he makes the wiki amazing and is still helpful and cool.He simply makes the forum better.
    Also shoutout to Cyan because hes also life.Cyan is pretty boss.Probably one of the most helpful guys on this forum.He always has the right answer and when he doesnt(very very rarely.)he apoligizes and finds the right one.He also like tj is constantly adding to the wiki.He has amazing abilities with pretty much everything on the forum and commands respect from everyone.He also is one of the most dedicated guys on the temp making sure every post is complete and then after that making it even more complete by adding details and what might happen if his suggested solution is wrong.He also knows everything he probably just googles random stuff and remembers it.If you were to merge Tj and Cyan you would get the most awesome thing ever.

    Thats all.

    I will dedicate this mediocre paragraph to Trolly Dave. You see, Dave and I are both Socialists/ Social Democrats/general Leftie types. And as such we must unite and watch each other’s backs. As Karl Marx said “Proletariats of the World Unite!” Or something along those depending on your translation of The Communist Manifesto. But of course there are times when we disagree. In the 2010 General Election, Dave supported “Clegg for PM,” as in the Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg. I disagreed and challenged him on that claim in a controversial episode of “Know Your Tempts.” I asked if he still believed the case despite Clegg being a right wing Orange book Liberal and for generally being a pussy. Seriously Clegg is a pussy, what man cries to music? The episode in question shocked not for any political chitchat but because we think iFish may have said something remotely positive about one of Apple’s competitors. Though he may have been talking about the fruit than the massive and consumer-unfriendly heartless corporation.

    EDIT: Writing that felt cringe worthy but it was for free shit.

    Can we PM you with our entry? And are you going to pick the best one or just randomly pick them without reading them?

    Much better.

    @emigre
    nothing to be embarrassed about [​IMG].

    @ShadowSoldier
    I will be reading them all one by one and pick the best ones. If however a member of staff wants to do that, they are WELCOME!
    Just post your entry here, in a spoiler if you wish [​IMG].
