Our resident great white hope of game journalism, German hardcore gamer and Windows game collector Sicarius, just broke the 50,000 contribution points barrier.
His current main field of contribution seems to be the latest Windows games which he often adds shortly after release with detailed descriptions, a varied set of screen shots, and many other of the possible information. Furthermore, he obviously made close friends with the credits wizard, as he enters the most humongous of credit listings that only few would dare to touch.
Kudos to Christoph, and let's just hope that he continues trading the advantages of eating and sleeping for Moby contribution points. ;o)

Amazing feat! And those ginormous credit listings are the bane of all approvers because they take about equally long to approve :)
Absolutely stellar work. Sicarius's game descriptions are consistently top-notch and thorough, and manage to fill an otherwise significant gap in the database in the form of recent releases. Here's to an equally successful 100,000 points.
Sicarius, you always do such an amazing job on your submissions. Well-deserved accolades!

Yeah... Thanks, pal. Your contributions are always directed on new "hot" releases. And it seems that all of them should be taken a look at least. Please, keep up this work. Your job is done in high quality. Thanks, again!!! and Congratulations!
Well I do mostly only add what I myself review/play/buy so of course that mainly includes games that are interesting :).

Okay, I guess all the congratulations are in ;). So thanks MZ per X for noticing that the eleventh contributor in the history of MobyGames managed to accumulate 50.000 points. I would've liked to be the 10th but I guess once again Joyvalley and Macs Black - oh well, read my profile.
Thanks everyone else for the nice words and of course thanks to all the approvers most notably of course Sciere, who took me (as so many others) under his wing and showed me the Moby-way; Jeanne, who got me into the credits-business, Kabushi who approves my stuff even when there are still tons of grammatical errors in the description and DJP Mom who is a very nice and well educated woman that deserves to have her slippers clicked (on an unrelated note - there are still xbox-credits for Blood Bowl pending, Mom ;) ). And no, you don't need to get that last part. It's an insider gag.
And if anyone is wondering what I'm working on right now. I'm currently blocking the following entries:
Star Trek Online Star Trek Online (Collector's Edition)
I'm already playing it and the credits are in but I'm still waiting for my box for the scans.
BioShock 2 BioShock 2 (Special Edition)
I reviewed it on Xbox (read the German text here -> http://www.gamersglobal.de/test/bioshock-2 ) and will get the PC SE in the next few days, so it will still take a minute to work in both credits listings and make shots from the PC-version to submit my most complete entry yet :).
Only have played the first two minutes of the game yet - but the entry should be in and approved during the upcoming weekend.
So now you know why YOU aren't allowed to add these hot games and knowing is half the battle. I hope you look beyond these minor delays and appreaciate the quality I provide by doing so. If not: please direct Hate-Mails to Sciere - he loves to get complains about me ;). Or talk to my assistant, Kessy:
See you at 60.000 points!
Oh, I'll forward the hate mails next time. There are none. The praise is of course implied, congratulations!
Congratulations! It is good to see that many new and hot releases receive a good and detailed description. I also congratulate his standing to enter these huge credit listings, this really can be a pain sometimes.
