At last, we are happy to announce that Viki Gonia, aka VikiBabbles, is just the 15th Newsviner to ever receive the Random Act of Vineness award. Long overdue - we want to recognize not only the big things Viki has done, but also the many small things.
Many of you know that Viki recently represented the Newsvine community on national television, and she did a tremendous job of it. Viki is a kindhearted, genuine person - who puts her heart and soul into various thankless acts around Newsvine, day in and day out. Yet, she also steps up to the plate when asked to do so by the Newsvine Team.
Many Newsvine members may remember a comment or email from Viki as they first landed in our Greenhouse. That is because VikiBabbles and a few other dedicated Newsviners spend countless hours combing through the Greenhouse to not only help new users along, but to alert the Newsvine Team to malicious users and spammers who intend to do harm to our community. For this, we thank you, Viki.
Viki also does a variety of other good deeds through her contributions on and off the web, in connection with Newsvine. For example, VikiBabbles reports from Lollapalooza, she supports other Newsvine contributors in their endeavors, she writes tutorials, babysits, inspires, interviews fetishists and chronicles Vinemeets - just to name a few.
Viki, this community loves you, and the Newsvine Team is happy to recognize all that you have done. Congratulations.
