Happy 11th Birthday, Destructoid Community!


Since 2006

Is Destructoid really eleven years old? Yee*. 

*I apologize if that came off as anti-Cretaceous.

I'd like to thank my momma, Jordan, Chris, Brett, Steven, ZackStephen, Holmes, Darren, Jed, Alissa, Caitlin, Josh, Matthew, Peter, Nic, Patrick, Occams, Cosi, Mike, Beccy, Panda, Strider, Pixie, CJ, Dennis, MylesCory, Kevin, Tianxiao, Red, Christian, Salvador, Ray, Wes, Nick, Geoff, Shade,  Dealzon and everyone else that make this place weird and interesting to read everyday. It's my pride and joy that Destructoid continues to attract so many high-quality people over the years. For those here and gone: shine on, you crazy diamonds. As a tall handsome bastard once said, Destructoid has become like the Rebel Alliance with members at every outpost.

Where's GuitarAtomik?

Today is also Jerry Lewis's and Todd McFarlane's birthday. Oh yeah, and mine. I don't know that my poops would be the same if I didn't have your comments to read everyday. I hope to continue being your publisher for 11 more years. I'm digging this hologram.

Some quick and dirty serious business while we're doing this:

Last month I received a really nice letter from a Mr. Rapoport titled "How do i give you money?" in response to my now-ancient plea about the publisher hustle. Later this year we hope to roll out a Patreon so you can throw money to your favorite editors and podcasters. You'll be able to cancel/transfer your Huge account if you're grandfathered in from the ad-free/paywall experiment that we no longer offer. With Patreon, we hope to bring back more videos on Destructoid since many really seem to miss those. 

Can you see yourself on Destructoid's home page? Maybe you should be. I'd like to publish more long-form love notes to the video games from different kinds of people. Simply post your blog or vote up your favorites, and we'll do our best to get you front and center.

Queeeeee? If you write and speak Spanish I'd love to hear from you, as we're launching a brand-new Destructoid en Español this year. De pinga! Send Spanish writing samples to jobs [@] destructoid [punto] com.

Last but certainly not least, please join me in wishing long-time Dtoid Blogger Elsa the best of luck and a speedy recovery, as she's undergoing a serious operation. We hope to see you back on the blogs, old girl!

Everyone else - Thanks for making us your choice in shut-the-fuck-up-and-just-play-games editorial year after year. 

We've been copied so many times, but we're still here and still the original! 10 more years!
