Oh how time flies when you're having fun, and what a fun 5 years it has been here at Destructoid. To think this whole party got started when Niero donned a makeshift robot helmet to get attention at E3.
Every March we like to celebrate dtoid's birthday with style, flair and lots of love and this year is no exception. Last year we asked you to tell us your Favorite Destructoid Memories and those who answered the call were handsomely rewarded with the 4 year badge.
This year's badge is hot off the presses and ready to be handed out starting around the 16th of the month (Dtoid's and Niero's birthday). All you have to do to qualify for this year's badge is tell us who your favorite community member here at Destructoid is and why. Spread the love far and wide and maybe some will even come back to you.
I'll go first, though I love all my kids so this was an exceptionally tough one for me to answer. If I had to pick just one person here I couldn't live without it would end in a draw between my super co-Admin Mxyzptlk and my personal sketch artist Zombie Platypus.
Mxy, because "you complete me" in everything you do to keep the forums going and keeping me and the rest of the team motivated to make this place awesome. It's also great having another parent around who "gets it" when I start ranting about things. I've said it before and I still mean it, I couldn't do this without you, and really I wouldn't want to try.
ZP, because you're my forum BFF and your posts always make me smile no matter how crappy or stressful my day has been. You also have the uncanny ability to show up at just the right time to draw whatever crazy idea I've come up with and post it in record time. Thanks for being one of the "Better People™" who make my job worthwhile.
There's a ton of other people who deserve to be mentioned here, but since I already broke my own rule and posted two instead of one plus totally blew my sappy quota for the month in one post I'll turn this thread over to the rest of the community now.
How about it guys, who's your favorite community member and why do you love them so much?
