Thanks again to everyone for supporting the site! It is my pleasure to announce the winners of the drive prizes for 2006. This list is from first to last, essentially giving a choice to each winner, in order of names drawn. Check out the prize list here!
Finally, we can get down to the good part! The donation draw will happen Thursday night at 8PM CST. We'll announce the winners on the page as soon as the draw happens, but that's not nearly as fun as listening to it live on Teamspeak!
Before I begin, I want to thank everyone for their generous donations so far! It means a lot to us and we'll be putting it all to good use in the coming year. Before I list all of the donors so far, I'd like to thank Propagandalf for adding the following games to the prize pool!
Ah, tis that time of the year again where, for two weeks, I put some seed-change in my empty Campbells soup can, wear my most pitiful expression, and beg you all to support our site-running habits for another year.
Please join me in congratulating the "winners" of our latest Call For Writers: Rabbit and Malacola. Now, I know what you're thinking. Who the hell is Rabbit and/or Malacola; and the answer is: I have no idea, but they sure write purty.
After some issues with shipping, all back-ordered Wiener Bomb shirts and Gamers With Jobs mugs have been sent out. I've also received my own and I am very pleased with the quality of both the mug and the shirt. Cafe Press this is not!
Orders are officially re-opened and I'm confident they will be packed and shipped out quickly.
A reminder to those of you inclined to scribe your polysyllabic mirth into digital literature and infect a captive audience with your viral musings, that the GWJ search for writers continues. The best start for penning a submission is to not write like I did in the last sentence. Seriously, I'm this close to firing myself.
As we bid farewell to one of GWJ's most prolific and creative voices, we look at the same time toward the future of the site. The (temporary?) loss of one feature spells the opening for new voices to be introduced, and while we do loves us our Fletcher, we also love the opportunity to introduce new and incredibly varied talents to our readership.
It has been a long time coming, but we are finally ready to sell the next run of our official Gamers With Jobs swag. Finally, you can wear your Wiener Bomb with pride and answer uncomfortable questions at work about your Gamers With Jobs mug!
