So does I, actually. Rubbish though they occasionally were.

We have the people complaining they wanted it more serious then getting their wish but still complaining to thank for it. And the people that started getting jealous of the few regular contributors that were in every week or so.

I was hardly ever in there, despite being pretty damn regular (me period's the same day of the lunar month like clockwork), and I still enjoyed them. Even if it was just El Mag mouthing off again.

I really liked the feature, and I especially liked it when it was just funny comments. It'd be nice if they'd resurrect it in its original form.

Hmmm. The problem was that they took me A LOT of time to do and - no offense intended - but a lot of the time there wasn't much to put in there.

Without the genuinely insightful or interesting comments (again, no offense) I decided to stick to funny stuff, which was met with a lot of complaints.

Eventually it just came to a point where it seemed like not a lot of people were reading it and it was eating into a huge portion of my time.

However, since you guys enjoyed it, I'll resurrect it once the dust settles on the crazy review month. Expect to see Comments of the Week back in the next couple of weeks.

Just an idea: How would you feel about COTW in video form?

Nah not in video form. The old format was decent. If it takes up time though why not get Dodo to do it? Being a mod officially makes him your bitch right?

How long until my first warning :P

Personally I was fine with funny comments. A couple of insightful ones when they appear, otherwise just go with the witty or plain ridiculous.

I'd like it back in whichever form is easier to be honest. Video seems like it could be a laugh, but I couldn't see it at work. :(

How would a video form work? Would it be like Points of View would innappropriate accents and inflections being employed? If so I want to be a sultry female jazz singer circa 1920s gangster movie moll type.
