G'day mates, your beloved yet useless affiliates manager here again to add to the ever-growing monstrosity that is the Section of the Month table. Last month, we started up the public voting system so that you, the reader, could decide which section deserves to be placed upon a pedestal as a reminder to all our other writers that they’re just awful. Well unexpectedly, our very first month with that system has led to a two-way tie. Now our winners get to fight each other to the death to decide who the true king of the hill is!

Our lucky winners – as chosen by the community – are Stooben Rooben (talk) for his Interview section, and Shyguy27 (talk) for his aptly titled Shyguy Does a Thing guest section, that both tied with five votes each.

In Stooben's absurdly lengthy section, he interviewed yours truly and my arch nemesis Master Crash (talk) with a very light-hearted, casual, and conversational approach that presented much about the way each interviewee views the Wiki and other users, as well as giving some insight into their personalities, hobbies and interests. His ability to get his victims interviewees genuinely engaged in the conversation brought out the best in both him and his guinea pigs, being equal parts entertaining and informative. (P.S. I'm better than Master Crash)

In Shyguy's comical guest section, he wrote a text Let's Play of ever-popular Steam title Terraria, with the catch that I – the one who asked him to write for us – play alongside with him, an awkward proposition considering I've never played the game dedicatedly in the past and he put the difficulty on Mediumcore (hate you). With a clever blend of information and cheerfully sarcastic humour, Shyguy managed a refreshing and hilarious outlook on our adventures in the unforgiving world of Terraria and displayed exactly why we're both pillocks. And I sure as hell had a good time playing with him. We should do it again sometime, mate.

Third-place runner-up was my own Crocodile Style Reviews, even though I believe it's one of my weakest sections yet. I'm seeing a pattern here; I'm in all the top three sections this month. Perhaps people were actually voting for me to be the real winner instead of those other two bogans. Thank you, mates; I really appreciate the support!

(congrats, Stooben and Shyguy; you're both great sports)
