I'm looking mainly for originality. It can be painfully honest, warped, creative, all ass kiss, sappy, witty, self-deprecating, or down right stupid. However, defamatory statements - flaming regarding another CAGs entry will result in DISQUALIFICATION.

Thanks for checking out my contest and good-luck! :D

Demolition Man makes CAG a better site because of his useful info that he posts about Circuit City video game deals. Also, he provides a great deal of info about TNA in the wrestling threads.
Never settle for full price unless you have no other choice. ;)

I honestly think that OneTrackMind is one of my best friends on the board and a great contributor to the forums in general. He's funny, smart, and he's a great guy if you ever talk to him.

The only thing that surpasses his humor is his skills with graphics and Photoshop. Nowadays you can't seem to enter a thread where someone doesn't have a sig made by him or any sort of graphic in one form or the other. His free sig shop service (which, unfortunately, seems to have died with no signs of resurrection) spewed out dozens of quality sigs that everyone enjoyed to use. His popularity never got the best of him, and he gave any credit where it was due.

I wish he was more active on the forums and on AIM, but sadly his job seems to take up a lot of his time.

Godspeed to him.

The Successful dropout

Was a great poster while he was here, as well as a great trader. Now he is rarely seen on CAG, but is auctioning away all of his stuff. So all the great deals he got back from CAG he is now giving back to the "new" CAG community.

2nd pick- joshingit. People like you giving away a game, is great for the community.

I wanna thank all the televisions out there that raised me.

GuilewasNK.

This gentleman treats everyone with fairness, respect, and is willing to be friends with anyone here. He has a wide array of interests, is funny, creates entertaining threads, is very helpful to the CAG community, makes nice sigs, and without ever meeting him, I can truly say that he is one hell of a guy. GuilewasNK is what every CAG should hope to be and is a great example of an all-around good human-being.

Joevan.

One of the absolute best Sellers/Buyers/Traders on CAG today. Without Joe and his 122 iTrader Feedback ( and counting ) a lot of use wouldn't have got so many great deals from him.

Recently he sold me Hitman: Blood Money 360 and Table Tennis 360 ( New ) for 70.00 Shipped. I would have bought these games either way and would have spent 100.00 plus tax on the 2 but with his great deals I saved myself $36.50. He opens himself up as being a True member of CAG. Not only looking for cheap deals himself but hooking us up with great deals from his Tradelist.

Also, Joevan is a stand up guy. He's is always nice and polite. Mostly a laugh riot, his funny posts amuse us while being serious when needed.

Joevan = CAG at heart

Almost every post he makes is very informative and helpful. He is also one of the few people here who really knows and understands a lot about the technical side of video games and the industry in general. Usually after reading one of his posts I get the feeling that I actually learned something new, can't say that about most posters.

speedy1961 simply because he posts the ads very early and I can always plan my purchases ahead without having to waste time going store to store to see who has the best deals. He also seems like a very good and helpful guy in general.

Although he's a total dick, I don't think CAG would be the same without JimmieMac.

His bitingly sarcastic insults and remarks certainly get a reaction out of almost anyone, and he's a personality that really stands out. He's a mainstay of the forums that's been around for a while and therefore has some seniority. Furthermore, he makes for an excellent villain for us all to love to hate, with his painfully true (and clever) remarks, he certainly adds some well-needed liveliness to this place.

Shrike all the way!

Because CAG trading is a big reason why I love CAG and why CAG is better than a lot of other forums. Keeping your trades safe and making sure both parties get their items, someone has to do the dirty job of dealing with any problems, and Shrike has taken that on. He keeps all trades in order, deals with problems, and does his best to control situations that aware, and hes done an awesome job! Without him, trading at CAG just wouldn't be safe and would be risky, and because he continues to do the job, I continue to trade. Keep it up Shrike :D

i pick reality's fringe b/c his posts and sigs always make me laugh. whenever i'm in the office, i'm always logged onto CAG b/c it keeps me entertained. buying games for cheap is just a bonus for me LOL! :)

Well, to be honest, it's hard for people to be outraged about something once they know the facts. And it takes more effort to dig up facts than be outraged. ;)

Cheapy may have had the vision, but Defender was for a long time the Atlas upon whos shoulders CAG rested. Atleast, I think. :-k Eitherway, he's done a lot for us behind the scenes and never really gets thanks.

Actually, I don't think you can make the claim that any one person makes CAG. We're a community and everyone of us helps make CAG what it is. Whether you're a midwest Asian pimp, an east coast pants-shitter, a moody former moderator living in WA or even a crustacean looking for massive damage- we all are just one brick in the home of cheap videogame deals ...and love. Hot sweat man on man nerd love.
