Recognition for 2012's Most Active Members
At the beginning of every month, we recognize members for their participation in the forum in the previous month. Five years ago, we expanded our tradition to include a special recognition for the most active participants for the year. Now that 2013 has begun, we are honoring our most-active forum members of 2012, led by universal4. His site will be shown on the GPWA home page for the next month as the featured member site of the year.

Recognizing 2012's Most Active Affiliate Managers
We're also acknowledging the most-active affiliate program representatives from last year.

Have you used a phone in the toilet?
A novel new gaming device in Europe uses a video game console mounted above a urinal. An infrared sensor detecting the directional flow of a user's urine stream controls the game. An article about the device (linked in the thread) states "a significant number of mobile phone users admit to using their phones while in the bathroom." So have you used a phone in the toilet?
