Hi fellow editorial staff members! It’s 2015, and the internet is full of gifs. Here’s how to make your own. Doesn’t matter if you work at Kotaku or are some random person who stumbled upon this post accidentally (hi!), you’ll get the same results.
As you may have noticed, we’ve launched a new series called Kotaku Asks, in which we bring interesting people to come take your burning questions. We’ve already got a great lineup of guests slated for April, but we want your feedback: who would you like to see us invite for the future? Famous game developers?…

Not only is Kotaku going through applications for Tokyo correspondents (we are currently no longer accepting applications), it is also looking to expand its coverage beyond Japan to China and South Korea.
Occasionally, people ask me, "Brian Ashcraft, is Kotaku ever hiring?" To which I reply, "No, random person, it is not." But if you were to ask me that same question today, I'd have a very different answer.
An e-mail some of you may have received that appears to be a request for a password reset for World of Warcraft is a phishing scam. Consult this official Blizzard thread for information. [Update: Blizzard is sending legit warnings, too.]
Some time over the weekend a group compromised Gawker Media's servers, resulting in a security breach at all of the Gawker sites, including this one. Editors and tech are here for all the Q&A you can handle about what happened.
While most of us (really all of us) are busy eating Turkey or sleeping, there will still be a steady stream of stories coming to you from Kotaku.
Game reviews are a contentious thing.
Did you know that Kotaku has its own Twitter account?
Kotaku Brasil is live with a countdown clock and a playable game of Arkanoid.
