Big John WV is a fairly new contributor, having registered in March 2007, but he has been quietly working in the background and has become an extremely valuable contributor to the site. In a year and a half, he submitted no less than 211 unique game entries and more than 10,000 MobyRanks.
Where most new contributors struggle with game descriptions, he immediately went for this difficult area of contributing and consistently delivers extensive descriptions, even for genres (e.g. sports games and especially American football) that appear to remain fairly unpopular with a large majority of our contribution field. Just like Sicarius he also focuses on major new titles immediately upon release. Those keep the site relevant to those who are only interested in modern-day games.
At the same time, German contributor Aarzak reached that milestone too. He has mostly focused on older console titles, helping us complete the NES listings and various other platforms. Since having joined in 2004, he has contributed 144 games to the database and almost 4,500 individual screenshots.
A Big accomplishment by Big John WV. Congrats :)
Congratulations! 11,000 MobyRanks and 213 games, how is that humanly possible ;)
Nice work John! I have always been impressed at your quality games.
*Edit: Nice work to AARZAK as well!
Thanks guys and gals (especially you Jeanne), but really the credit should go to all you for helping me out. There are times I have trouble with release dates, but Sciere and Jeanne help out a lot and recently with the train wreck PS2 Mercenaries I got help from Sciere and gamewarrior. I thank you all a lot for the patience you put up with me. I just can't wait for the day Sciere hits the big 100 grand, LOL. Now that will be a truly remarkable day in Mobygames.
Thank you Sciere, Jeanne, Wizo, gamewarrior, ALAKA, Oliver Jahn, Kabushi, Tek Nor, beetle120, parf, Indra Depari of 'da Clan Depari, Martin Smith, Joshua J. Slone, Opipeuter Inconnivus, Servo, DJP Mom, DANIEL HAWKS !, coenak, Klaster 1, Macs Black and to everyone else as well.
Good work! (but since when is the 10000-point mark considered a milestone?)
Thanks, although it feels a bit like asking someone to arrange a surprise party for your birthday :)
And I'm so blind lately I didn't see yours too, AARZAK! Congratulations!
Oh, I'm losing the touch! I saw this milestone coming a couple of days ago, but it seems that Sciere had it ready for a while now! Anyway, he did it way better than I could!
Congratulations, Big John! I'm always glad to see your submissions around, you do indeed a "big" work to MG. =)
Gui, are you sleeping on the job again? :p
Good going, you two! Glad I could help you with contributing games, Big John.
It's been a pleasure working with the NES queue the last year, thanks to contributors such as Aarzak.
I hope you're not confusing me with ALAKA, because I've contributed more C64- and SNES- than NES-related stuff. But Gui's bad conscience should be all the motivation I need :)
Of course I've been confusing you with ALAKA. I take it all back.
Congratulations for both! :-D
Big congratulations to the both of you!
