About
Hi, I started Destructoid. Ever heard of it?



Destructoid used to be my tiny personal blog on the web, and now it's grown into this crazy monstrosity of a gaming community. Needless to say, I'm proud of what we've done and optimistic we can do a whole lot more. I've been at this with all my heart since 2006. I really love what I do, and hope you enjoy our writers' work.

You can learn about the history of Destructoid on Wikipedia, there's a pretty nice article about some of the things we've done in both editorial and charity work.

As for me, I'm pretty busy working on the future version of our site most of the time, so unfortunately I don't get to write as much as I would enjoy doing. I do go outside sometimes. The best thing I've ever done is volunteer. I didn't mean to dress like Luigi, it just kinda happened.



My primary job now as publisher is to keep the editorial team happy and build new features for you guys, our readers. I'm also one of the site's front-end programmers, so I'm always doing stuff behind the scenes. It's a lot of fun for me to switch jobs around the company and do a little bit of everything. I draw inspiration from a few places you may have heard of:



Thanks for checking out my blog today! I realize you have many kitten web sites to visit today, so I appreciate you strolling through my site and supporting what we do.

Update 2: The people have spoken and I have made it so.

Update 1: Until we come up with something cool I just removed the word like altogether. There's a little thumb icon in its place. We'll come back to this later, until then I owe you a dark theme.

PS. Sorry for the late update, I was editing Hamza's pizza video :)

If you've been following the community blogs, comments, forums, etc regarding the new site design you'll find two primary complaints: (1) its too damn bright (a dark theme is coming asap) and (2) nobody likes the "like" button. Due to recent events in the tech community I thought it would be best to re-work the button to be more inclusive of female readers that may otherwise find the joke misogynistic.

What should the upvote say instead of Like? How about Bump?
