Huzzah for Fizz! June 26, 2018 12:45 PM   Subscribe

I am calling out Fizz for being awesome. He has now posted 1405 high quality posts to MeFi, which would earn him a Big Fucking Gold Medal for most posts ever, if only such a thing actually existed. He's a lean, mean posting machine. Join me in congratulating him!

Fizz is awesome because he has relieved me of the dubious distinction of holding the title of user who has used the "game" tag most often.

MetaFilter without Fizz would be a flat soda. Best MeFite nick ever.

Thank you, Fizz, for the many great posts. "Oh hey, there's a great post about games. Wonder if it's from Fizz" is a thought I have often. :)

Yay, Fizz! It's so easy to feel bogged down with the weight of the world and Fizz's posts have had a measurable daily impact in making me remember how much going on is still okay. Thank you very much Fizz. You are doing sterling work!

Hurray for Fizz! I'm interested in games in general, and Fizz single-handedly makes MetaFilter a better place to find thoughtful articles about the art form than most dedicated gaming blogs and magazines.

Fizz is awesome! I appreciate his Metatalk posts too - he puts a lot of effort to bring us all together, and it's a good thing. Yay Fizz!

Fizz is a better Mefite than I'll ever be - and thank goodness for that!

I tell you what, I NEVER once read a post by Fizz and think "welp, we should probably just pack it up- Hell is empty and all the demons are here".

Which is unusual is what I'm saying. Please never leave us Fizz! You are a shining star.

You're one of the users whose comments I pretty much always read. And nearly every day one of your posts catch my eye. Thank you!

Posting this well and continuously is a job. A gig, if you will. Perhaps...a Fizz gig. Which is preferable to a Fizz ban. Which will never happen, because Fizz is good to people.

Thanks, Fizz, for making this place good.

Echoing the sentiment. That's a lot of posts, and they are consistently good and interesting posts.

Fizz makes video game posts interesting even for people who are not into video games!

Totally. And Fizz, I've never met you except through threads here, and I hope this doesn't sound weird... but whenever I hear/see something about your "posts about video games" I admit getting a little defensive on your behalf. Because my reaction is "But they're about so much more than 'video games'!"

They are about why video games are important and incredibly relevant in today's times. They are about diversity and representation in media. They are about why it's such a win when video games make an effort to represent the hair and skin of black characters, or add options for non-binary characters.

And I also wanted to specifically give a high five for all the excellent non-video game-related posts you've made. Speaking of diversity, I appreciated the one about casting (or actually, not casting) POC in stage roles. As well as posts on a variety of other interesting subjects, such as the enduring legacy of Joan Lindsay's Picnic at Hanging Rock, finding medieval writings in later bookbindings, and whether or not to walk on escalators. Just a few favorite examples among many.

Thank you, Fizz!

Thanks friends. I said it above and maybe I'm just saying it again in a different way, but I like this place and the community that exists here, it's why I keep on posting, I'm always interested in what others have to say about all kinds of subjects. I'm always learning and laughing and sometimes frowning. It's a mixed bag of fun. Cheers to all of you. :)

Yeah, not only do you do good gaming posts, but they are crazy in-depth. Definitely appreciate them.

Fizz’s posts are sort of a metaphor for Dark Souls, you know?

It’s in the Lore.

Nice work, Fizz! I did a videogame post a while back and Fizz sent a very nice message to me, which I very much appreciated. The very model of a modern Mefite general indeed.

Congrats, Fizz! I'm a little lurkery on the Blue but I'm always happy when I see you've made a post.
