"Gaben" meme started with Gabe saying his email address in TF2s developer commentary, he said it as /ˈɡeɪbɛn/. I'm sure there is possibly some proof of this, I think this is the video that popularized it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8tsHkpesBdY — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.182.217.138 (talk) 16:16, 5 February 2015 (UTC)

Since this is his nickname (Gaben), and the name by which a majority of the gaming community calls him (the community in which he is a public figure), perhaps this should be used in the Lede after where his name is listed. not sure of the name conventions though, ill do some research. InsertCleverPhraseHere InsertTalkHere  07:48, 12 March 2015 (UTC)
