Spotlight Nominations: What NOT to Do
Since the Community Close-Up episode about how to get in the Gamer Spotlight on Xbox.com and Inside Xbox, I’ve been inundated with nomination emails. Some have been really good and interesting and I’m excited to publish their interviews in the coming weeks. Others are mostly ‘meh’ and some are downright laughable. The following are real, authentic bone fide nomination emails with gamertags and other identifying info removed. Presented for your edification and amusement, I give you The Good, The Bad and the just plain Wrong.
I’d like to nominate myself. 2 reasons: 1 – I’m probably the most excited gamer there is for the upcoming release of The Force Unleashed. 2 – School just started. My students would go nuts if they saw me up there.
Also, I guess I’m supposed to say something about how I’m the best human in the history of humans…
TriXie sez: Brief, includes a hook (he’s a teacher and his students would dig it), plus there’s a sense of humor and he shows that he’s been paying attention. Look for his Gamer Spotlight tomorrow on Xbox.com.
