Video: TheSpeedGamer’s pumpkin carving contest

We’d like for the community to send in pictures of their own TSG themed pumpkin carvings .  During our marathon we will give away different awards for the pumpkin carvings.  For example, most original, funniest..ect.  Also, if you’d like to create a stencil for your carving,  be sure to send that in too so other members can recreate your art.  We will compile a slideshow of all the pumpkin submissions we received and play it during the  Halloween marathon.  Start sending in your carvings today! Remember that you don’t need to be an artist, this is all in good fun.
You can drop your submissions in the forum topic here and

First you should notice we re-imagined our navigation bar altogether, we have separated the Gaming content from our Marathon content (try doing that with your America s’mores, Phil). It wasn’t easy but we did it for the convenience of our readers, and that’s who matters dangit!

Server move complete

Over the course of last night and this morning Local and I (mostly Local) were transferring the files and databases to a new Virtual Private Server. We are now ready for the marathon, and should not have any problems with the load of other sites taking down No more CPU Limit Exceeded warnings!

This marathon will be the best one yet!
