To answer some questions I recieved - YES, we made it through Hurricane Sandy in one piece! It didn't hit our area too hard and the office only lost power for a day. I hope everyone in NYC and NJ is pulling through alright!

We do have some GOOD news this week - you can now keep up with reviews via the Project System! Down the left column you will see stats for reviews of your movies, games, art and audio. It also tells you how many are NEW since you last checked. The Project System is that "P" icon you see in the header when logged in, to the right of your inbox and dump space.

The winners of Voice Acting Contest 9 have been announced! The theme was "Horrible Jobs."

Here are the winners, 1st-4th:

Thank you everyone who contributed to our Halloween Spooktacular this past month. Winners will be announced next week! Because Trick or Treating has been pushed back to Friday and Saturday in a lot of neighborhoods on the East coast, we're extending the pumpkin carving contest until SUNDAY.

UPDATE: It's monthly voting time! Check your account page to see if you're in the pool of voters to select the Best of October.

Actually, a review feed is what I've been wanting for YEARS now. Is it possible to expect a comment feed sometime in the near future?

Yeah, or there could be a little "1" on the gear icon to alert you of the voting.

These are the best little update ideas I've heard since the redesign. I want them and I want them now. Tom! Get your ass on it. It's an awesome idea. I see profit in it...maybe...possibly...probably not. But still do it.


I said no to drugs but they just wouldn't listen.

THANK YOU!!! I was seriously waiting for something like this to happen.
Hell I decided out of nowhere to listen to some of my audio once, and found reviews for my stuff that were months old that I hadn't even known were there!

Also congrats to all of the winners and stuff.
And so far I've been seeing some really great stuff for the pumpkin carving contest. Keep up the good work dudes.

Tom, in the "advanced settings" option of the Project System, it shows "Flash Movie" for all the devices, but then there's a spelling mistake for "Not Compatible." It's currently written "Not Compatable", but it's supposed to be "Not Compatible".
