Good luck to everyone who competition from me for it. I hope someone who really needs it gets it. That looks like a really sweet machine. Love the paint job, very nice...--Thor79 14:58, 7 February 2009 (PST)

Controversies and Response

I'm going to request that this topic be discussed on this page before (and if) it's added to the main page again. Please demonstrate that a controversy exists among the TWiT community rather than simply insinuating that one does. The article is also not the appropriate area to argue about sections you don't agree with. That's what this page is for. --Steveh 20:55, 15 April 2009 (PDT)

I must agree with Steveh. There has been quite a bit of edit warring going on in the controversies section, which we really do not want to have. If this keeps up I will consider protecting this page until this issue gets resolved. As Steveh said, this is the page to discuss the article's content. -- Imperator3733 (talk | contribs | sysop | Logs: bdpr) 23:50, 15 April 2009 (PDT)
Agreed. Although I don't like how the point about implicitly favoring established TWiT users and alienating newcomers has been cut out. You expect me to prove that there is a controversy among the TWiT community, when the whole point is that I'm not a member of the TWiT community. I'm just a casual TWiT viewer/listener and I'd like to be able to participate in the contest on a level playing field.
I guess the basic question that Leo and TWiT staff need to ask themselves is whether your intention is to bring new people to your show or to reward those that are already well hooked up. Because I am "new people" and I sure don't feel like getting a fair chance. Entering the contest, I have concentrated on providing 10 reasons that are strong on merit and that's how I'd like to be judged. -- User:Anonymous
I agree with Steveh as well. I apologize for taking part in the edit war. I just felt I was in a tough spot. If I merely removed the section due to it being an inappropriate place to have this conversation, I was afraid I'd stir up the pot even more, which is why I responded here: on my blog. Going forward I'll keep the discussion here. --GabeMcG 22:10, 18 April 2009 (PDT)

The link to Collen's Blog goes to a semi-porn site. You may want to fix that. --Superpc658 18:05, 13 March 2011 (PDT)


Is this still going on? Perhaps there should be some dating added to indicate if its history or ongoing. --HateBadDesign 12:27, 7 March 2011 (PST)
