#AnimeVice is a anime/manga concept
From Anime Vice

Hello everyone! I barely notice it, but we hit over 25,000 character wiki pages!

Technically, we made 25,115 characters in the database and made 25,100 character pages on August 30, 2014. I wished I check the numbers more frequently. It would nice to get a date on when we hit 25,000 and put a date in our Anime Vice's 2014 Wiki Archive or the Timeline. I recall sickVisionz mentioning we had an unknown amount of test pages which are blank wiki pages without a Top Editor feature on it. Don't worry about the technical thing.

We as a community should be proud of our wiki editors who invested their free time to make our site better. Without wiki pages, Anime Vice doesn't have much foundation to attach reviews, blogs, forums, lists, and more. We need wiki pages as much as we need battle forums, RPG threads, and every feature of the site because we are a unique anime oriented community. No other community has what we have!

Like any community, we had hardships and struggles. One of our struggles is what counts as anime and manga which plays a huge factor on what characters we include in our database. We do include video game characters who have anime and manga adaptations. Anime influenced shows such as RWBY and Korra/Avatar and Manhwas characters are also included despite not being traditional pages. We do emphasize quality wiki editing so our folks will depend on our wiki pages not the Wikia or Wikipedia. Not every wiki page of a project gets equal love.

These are our best Wiki Projects

No matter what happens in the past and the future, we are making our wiki scope broad as we grow as a site to welcome all folks to this community. The wiki serves as a main attraction that keeps our site running.

Keep on working hard everyone. Thank you to everyone who support our wiki pages and contribute on it.

Credits for the banner: Saber, Toriko, Sousuke, and Ryuko Matoi. I randomly pick out anime characters. Wish I put more for a better representation for our site.

Hello everyone, I'm Taka, one of the wiki editors in the community. This is the first blog of a project called Trends in Anime Vice. Originally, I had planned to release surveys, but the surveys didn't work out like I wanted them to. Instead of using the surveys, I have to rely on experiences and observations in my 3 to 4 years in the community. I'll be explaining the pros and cons of these different formats. With different communities, you have to use one or both depending on the situation: small vs big community, active writers, etc.

Background

One of the complaints in Anime Vice was that we don't discuss anime and manga. You see this from the former Whiskey Media sites and other sites outside of the family. That's obviously a wrong statement made about our community. We do talk about anime and manga.

A group of of us, well rounded users and the mods, took out weekly reviews of our favorite shows. The mods did reviews on the Winter 2011-12, and they will PM their reviews to Tom Pinchuk who posts them on the front page. For me, I was a regular user, and I started in Fall 2011 with reviews on Beelzebub, Sket Dance, and Blue Exorcist. My purpose was to spotlight my teammates' wiki work while informing folks about these great shows. The more people knowing our wiki projects, we can get more help. Kuro joined me with his reviews on Guilty Crown. We were both wiki editors working on 2 projects together, Sket Dance and Guilty Crown.

During the Whiskey Media sale off in March 2012, the mods stopped doing their Winter Watch articles. After that day, we don't see any episode reviews from the mods. One of the reasons was that there wasn't much comments. In Summer 2012, BigHeart711 was reviewing Humanity has Declined while I was reviewing a few shows like Campione. I started experimenting with things from what I saw from My Anime List. I didn't want folks to bear so much burden especially my teammates on doing weekly episode reviews on top of wiki and school work. My Anime List had discussion threads where folks chimed in to talk about that episode. I found out less time consuming to do. I started a few discussion threads based on much hype and interests from the comments I got from the Summer Anime 2012 Trailers Anthology Blog. It was better to put out discussion threads on popular shows like Binbogami Ga! anime Discussion.

In Fall 2013, Daniel notice the discussion threads and talked to both BigHeart711 and I to start making them with wiki attachments. Then, we abandoned the trailer threads and converted everyone into a discussion thread.

That's our community's history in a nutshell.

Pros and Cons

Weekly Reviews

ProsCons
  • With a weekly thread, you putting influence on the community. Informing them directly by comments and indirectly by one's presence. Example: Sket Dance and Beelzebub had been placed in the Anime Vice's Top 2011 Anime.
  • In a personality driven site like Random Curiosity, the reviews have more individualistic appeal. You're able to share what your thoughts on. It's your opinion.
  • It's time consuming. One has to keep up a schedule and upload screenshots. If one is a wiki editor and a reviewer, you have double the work.
  • Division of Comments: one who likes the reviewer's style while one does not like the reviewer's style. It all falls on the reviewer. It can be a hit or miss. We are have our unique preferences. Some folks love friendly reviews while others prefer blunt reviewers.
  • You can say the funnel of comments pattern also takes place in weekly reviews. Same thing happens. Folks will drop the show and won't comment. It's okay because it's up to them.

Discussion Threads

ProsCons
  • It's not time consuming because the thread gets created.
  • A set pacing: Some folks cannot catch up to the reviewer in a weekly review setting. In a discussion format, users can comment on their own leisure. You don't feel rushed to post comment.
  • Without a one personality being dominated, a lot of opinions can be expressed. There is more freedom to express any thoughts, good or bad.
  • It's comment driven. You need at least 2 folks to comment. If there is only one person, the discussion thread is dead.
  • Funnel of Comments: You get more variety of comments in the discussions, those who love and those who hate. For those who dislike the show, they will drop the show and discussion. For those who love the show, they will still put the good and bad but not as severe as the ones who dropped the show.

There is also a common con for the two, and it's more on how your readers watch anime.

  • Marathon: There are folks who prefer to watch the whole series once it's finished airing. It's normal because some shows are more enjoyable in that style.

Nothing is perfect. All we have to do is adjust one or both for the community. Let me know if I missed some pros or cons.

Thank you for reading.

The purpose of this thread to record all Roundtable discussion threads that past mods and regular users had hosted. To promote user content in the community. Part of Anime Vice's community and staff's goals is to promote user content because we are community driven. Feel free to use this thread to pool ideas.

My style was to promote anime and manga series that dealt with the wiki projects where my teammates and I worked on. That was when Fire Star was taking over Sora's job in the Roundtable discussions. Fire Star and Sora invited well rounded and respected users to partake in the roundtable discussions. With Fire Star and Sora being inactive, I'm somewhat reviving the roundtable discussions. I'm doing it less frequently given how much time it takes and what topics are hot during seasons. It's better to do a roundtable when you have a momentum during when a new anime or popular manga series is on the majority's watch/ read list. Today, I invite everyone who has a good standing with the community.

After my meeting with Tom Pinchuk back at Anime Expo 2013, he told me we're community driven. He said users shouldn't be shy in promoting their stuff on the front page. As I work with the community, I was looking for ideas. I ask Daniel, sickVisionz, Foxx, Gia, and plenty of others in Anime Vice and on Twitter. Finally in August or September 2013, I got a break through, the cultural interviews (An Entire World of Anime Fans! -- THE VICE PIT). Let's keep on working on it.

Lastly, remember, anyone in this community can start a roundtable of their own. I'm not a leader, just a facilitator.

Welcome everyone, here is Anime Vice's Top 20 Manga Series of 2013! This poll was started on January 30, 2014 and ended on March 15, 2014 (See Top 10 Manga of 2013 Voting Project). With you guys and gals' help, I was able to record 145 manga series for the voting sheet. Out of 145 entries, only 77 manga series got voted. 28 Vicers had voted, and submitted a total of 108 votes. This is your community's results! I was surprised by the results.

I was asked by many folks to start a manga poll contest since sickVisionz's top anime poll had an incredible response. Last year, we had about 50 voters. (See Top 10 Best Anime of 2013!) 2013 was the first time the community had voted for their top manga series. Another reason I wanted to start the poll was curiousity. I put some extra information to see where the community loves the most:

  • Are we leaning towards a particular manga publishing company?
  • Is weekly manga more popular than monthly manga series?
  • Are we predominantly Shonen manga fans?

I'm sorry for being a bit late with the results. With Screened closing down on March 14, 2014 and the Spring 2014 Guide in the works, it's a bit tough managing this poll and making the results. It was fun seeing the results. I put in about 5 hours today: working on tallying the numbers, making the list below, and double checking the math. If you want to see the Gdoc spreadsheet, here is the sheet.

1. Bleach
Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn't change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a shinigami (spirt of death) and member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a Hollow, an evil spirit that preys on humans who display psychic energy, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family, but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy.

2. Attack on Titan
Humankind is down to just a few thousand people who live in a city surrounded by three concentric walls. The walls protect them from their enemies, the ravenous giants known as the Titans. The Titans appear to have only one purpose: to consume humanity.

A Claymore - a female warrior named for the sword she carries - travels from medieval village to village to destroy Yoma, monsters who disguise themselves as humans and who are almost impossible to kill. Claymores are half-humans, half-demons who willingly transformed themselves by mixing their blood with monster's blood. Claire, nicknamed silver-eyed killer, is such a powerful Claymore, she can slay a Yoma using only one hand. But she must constantly struggle to keep from becoming a monster herself.

Weighted System

For those who are wondering about the weighted votes and why I used them. Since our community is small, raw votes won't help decide the winners. As you see from the data, the most votes for a manga series was 9. There were many ties. I had to go back and figure out how my teammate sickVisionz carry out his calculations. After talking to him on Twitter, he told to me to used his formula. Here's the formula from I need your help for the Best Anime of 2012 votes! thread. I couldn't use the numbers since this poll uses 10 slots instead of 5 slots.

Anime Vice and Screened Timeline

Welcome to the Anime Vice and Screened's Timeline project. Because of Screened's closure on March 14, 2014, I was concerned about Screened and Anime Vice. I realized our time is short. As a former historian in a college club, I carried that influence into Anime Vice by documenting mainly wiki work when I first started in Anime Vice. Here I am, doing this to preserve our two community's hard work and struggle.

I welcome all help because this is a community's time line, anything significant (Wiki, Battle, RPG, Reviews, and Staff) should be here.

Thank you everyone.

Nov - Dec 2008Anime Vice's website was launched. It was a site devoted to anime and manga.

Gia Manry wrote a letter about her farewell to the Anime Vice community. She mentioned she and John Martone will be leaving the community to pursue different interests. John Martone took up teaching while Gia took on jobs relating to her freelance career, Anime News Network and other sites.
May 12, 2010Screened's website was launched. It was a site devoted to TV shows and films.

Matt Rorie and Alex Navarro launched and ran Screened.com until it was purchased by Berman Braun. They both used to work at Gamespot.com along with Jeff Gerstmann, Ryan Davis (RIP), Brad Shoemaker, and Vinny Caravella in the years prior to Jeff's controversial sacking from Gamespot in 2007. Both Matt and Alex now work at Giant Bomb with their Gamespot buddies of old. They all have strong ties with Gamespot of one sort or another. Some might say that Gamespot before November 2007 was its "golden age" in terms of popularity and video content. Although I personally think Gamespot are getting better again with personalities such as Danny O'Dwyer and Jess McDonnell. But they'll never recapture their golden era.

It has been a fun couple of years, and I’d like to thank everyone who’s visited, commented, or sent in podcast questions, and especially those of you who took the time to edit the wiki. I appreciate all the support for our crazy little venture. The notion that what we’ve done here has been worth you taking some time out of your day to come by for a visit means a lot to me. A big thanks go out, as well, to our freelancers, who helped create some amazing content that I was proud to publish. Also, all of our mods deserve a big round of applause, but especially ScanCase and Finaldasa for helping out with the Community Showcases over the past months. And of course I'd be remiss if I didn't shoutout Alex, who invited me along on this crazy ride almost two years ago. Lastly, Joey Fameli deserves a ton of credit for making me look much more capable of hosting a video than I actually am.
I greatly appreciate all the well-wishes that you guys have sent my way recently; it's been very touching to hear how Screened has been a part of your life over the last couple of years.

In the Who Will Be the Next Wiki Editor with 100,000 Points? thread, Daniel Newton and Wales raced to the 100,000 wiki finish line. The race took a whole day as these 2 kept editing wikis. Meanwhile, Taka and KuroNeko who were doing the Guilty Crown Round Table commented on the Wiki Race on Twitter. Daniel beat Wales in the race. It was a very close race. The two were only 500-1,000 wiki points apart.

Because of the toll on writing weekly reviews that KuroNeko and Taka had done, Taka decided to implement a few anime discussion threads on the new anime season. He got the inspiration from MyAnimeList's discussion threads. The pros of having discussion threads were that it required less time to make rather than making weekly anime reviews. The cons were that the site didn't have enough people since most of the activity was in forum games or battle forums.

I just want to take a moment here and thank you all for taking time out of your busy days to read myNARUTO, ONE PIECE, and BLEACH weekly reviews. It has been a pleasure watching all of our favorite character’s grow up as a community as weeks and months passed.
Unfortunately circumstances do happen that are beyond my control, and life does move on. Sadly, I will no longer be writing for Anime Vice. However, this will not be the end of my writing career, I will be on the blog scene again.
Till then, see you Space Cowboy.

Stacy takes control of the site.
This is what I love: movies and television. And movies on television. And television on movies, oh wait.
This is what I also do: photography and producing. I produced a music video for my brother-in-law's band last year, and I am working on various other projects, including a short film. This is all in my "free" time or lack thereof, so don't worry, you get my attention during the day. I just don't sleep. That is fun.
This is who are great: Screened Pups. I thank you all for your support during this transition and it has been a true pleasure to get to write and post for you.
This is who I am obsessed with: Benedict Cumberbatch. Mostly, from Sherlock, but really from anything. ANYTHING! He's delicious. Here you see a picture of us together. Cute, right?

Now…enough about me, lets talk about Screened. When discussing what is special about Screened, we know that it is the community and all of the hard work all of you do. For that reason, your fearless moderator, will now be your community manager and the one posting articles on the front page. He already has helped me immensely with writing features, so it will be an easy transition. However, he does cry easily, so go easy on him. (Alright, I made that up, but still...be nice.) He will also likely be getting help from other community members, so keep up the good work and maybe that will be you.
In the end, the good news is, this means that you all know that Screened will be left in good hands and it will be around. I will also make myself available to FinalD to give him guidance and answer any questions he has.
It has been an incredible year and I thank you and will miss you all. Very much.
So say we all.

Your Community, Your Way
FinalDasa becomes the manager of Screened.
With my taking over I wanted to first introduce myself to those who may not know me all to well. I'm FinalDasa, or Michael if you wish, and probably like you am a fan of movies and TV. Some of my favorite movies include Star Wars,National Treasure, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and right now I'm keeping up with shows like The Walking Dead,Community, and soon to be watching Game of Thrones. I've been on Screened for years and a user of all the former family of Whiskey Media websites.
As what will happened with Screened, you hopefully won't experience any more turbulence with your normal everyday visit. I'll start right away with the normal articles you're used to seeing like What to Watch, Netflix Instant Update, About Last Night, Community Showcases, and so on. Give me some time while I hammer out details and get used to the shiny new buttons I have to navigate around in order to keep the lights on and the website running.
So what should you do? Keep using Screened, keep commenting, keep posting in the forum, keep editing the wiki, keep writing reviews, and keep being the super awesome amazing community you have been ever since I signed up.
I'd love suggestions about new features, what you'd like to see, what you don't want to see, and anything else you would like to say about Screened's content. It's now more community focused than ever and getting users like you more involved and interacting with what happens on Screened in priority number one

Takashichea wrote the Anime Vice 2013's Top Reviewers to promote the review community. This inspires SnowyMountain to start the Screened version with Taka and Acura's help.
January 14, 2014After 2 months of working together to compile a Anime Vice Battle Usage List that record how many times a certain character is used in a battle thread, Vapovile and Takashichea posted the project to make it known. To assist Vapovile and his community project, Taka started a Gdoc poll for Battle users to fill out their battle threads.
Week of Jan. 23, 2014Comic Vine's RPG folks invaded Anime Vice's RPG forum. Some of them disperse into the battle forums. Sonata left his post as a battle mod and moderates the RPG forum heaveily, leaving Taka to moderate the battle forums.
Taka posts the List of Banned Characters in the Battle Threads when the battle forums were flooded with multiversal and omnipotent characters. Due to his inexperience in moderating the battle threads, Taka asks the battle community to help. Dream contributed and helped Taka with the project. Eventually, order was restored in the battle forums.
January 25After being inspired by Jokergeist (Comic Vine)'s Battle Phone Project, SMXLR8 copy his idea and implement as his community project in the battle forums. Taka helped SMXLR8 revise the boxes while others like Vapovile urge SMXLR8 to adjust the rules (IE: Post Count) to accommodate new users.

FinalDasa sent out a PM to a select group of users to inform them about Screened's closure on March 14, 2014. He wanted to inform them earlier but not before the official announcement. Takashichea took actions and discreetly posts the Screened's Top Reviewers of 2013 in Anime Vice to save the work. Credits go to SnowyMountain, Taka, and Acura Max for writing the blog.
February 28, 2014FinalDasa posted the announcement of Screened's closure and informed everyone to start saving their blogs, reviews, wiki, and other things. ZombiePie of Giant Bomb included FinalDasa's message in his community spotlight. FoxxFireArt never spoke of the Screened's Closure in the Anime Vice community spotlight. Taka had to drop a comment.

CherryBomb's Last Fashion Blog
CherryBomb is one of Screened's best users known for her reviews, wiki, and her fashion blogs. She has a passion for fashion, and she publishes her take on Oscars and Emmies.

CherryBomb: I have had a heavy heart ever since Screened gave the announcement that it was closing down. Like a catchy Dido song, I'm yelling out "I will go down with this ship, I won't put my hands up and surrender" and so I'm bringing to you my final "Cherry's Choice" fashion blog post, and what better way to end it than with the 86th Academy Awards?

2013 was a glorious year for cinema but was this reflected in the 2014 fashion of our glitzy, glamorous stars? Let's see:

4 Years A Critic: Screened & I
On March 12, 2014, Callum Petch says goodbye to Screened by fondly reflecting on the site that gave him so much. He shares how he found the site and how much it changed him. Callum thanks everyone for their contributions for making Screened the best TV and Movie online community.

Callum: I honestly have no idea how to wrap this up. I held off a week before writing this, because I wanted to fully process the news before I set about putting words to electronic paper. Maybe I thought that would make me more prepared. Like I had something profound and insightful to close out my time on this site with. But I’ve got nothing. My mind is blank. In just about 48 hours, this site will shut down and there is nothing I can do about it.

...

My heart hurts. Thanks for everything, everyone. It really has been a blast and, despite the last 5 A4 pages, words genuinely can’t describe it. So, thank you. I love you all.

Welcome everyone! I'm Takashichea, your neighborhood wiki editor. We had another great year in wiki editing. Why I do these archive threads is because I'm a former historian for a club at my university back in 2010. I took pictures of my club and their happiest and proudest moments. My experiences from college are reflected in this community. I want to give recognition to my teammates and everyone. We are the driving force in this community. A majority of the community are wiki editors, either as a hobby, full time, seasonal breaks, etc.

Please give these guys recognition for their hard work this past year. It means a lot to our community.

If I miss you, please tell me. I would love to add you if you committed to a project for a week.

Wiki Milestones

We had a Who Will Be the Next Wiki Editor with 100,000 Points? thread back then. It was fun watching Wales and Daniel duke it out for the finish line. I still do this, so we have some history for our community. I separated this list into 100,000 class and above 100,000 class.

100,000

  • February 24: PikaHyper

  • PikaHyper - 200,000 - He got to 200,000 within a month after Feb. 24.

Welcome everyone! It's hard to believe that 3 years has passed.

Yes, I have crappy banner skills because I tried cramming every anime show I worked on in this community for the past 3 years.

Since I was too busy with the Fall 2013 Guide and preparing discussion threads and school, I don't have anything written down. I'll make this short.

I never thought I would commit so much to this community all this time. It all started when I found this site after surfing Google for Fairy Tail. Soon enough, I got addicted to wiki, and I was drawn towards the editors on Fairy Tail. If it wasn't for Anime Vice, I wouldn't have tried and experienced a lot of different anime and manga series. In 2012, BigHeart711 and I started the trailer project when the staff was disappearing one by one. In that year, I started branching out of Anime Vice and explored the sister sites: Giant Bomb, Comic Vine, and Screened. I even went into the Animanga Wikia sites to learn how they operate. Hoping I pick up stuff that would help Anime Vice. All these years, I worked the wiki pages and other projects to promote the community, make it better than ever. Folks come and go. I never forget them.

Thanks

Since I know a lot of folks and named them in the first anniversary blog, I'm going to make this list short

  • My Little Sister - She got me into anime. If I didn't get into anime, I wouldn't be here in Anime Vice. Plus, I watch a lot of anime shows with my siblings.
  • Annabanana - She was a great friend and one of the best wiki editors. We worked on Fairy Tail and lots of projects way back in 2010.
  • KuroNekoXIII - He was an awesome guy who cheered me up. I had fun working on Guilty Crown and Sket Dance with him.
  • BigHeart711 - Friendliest guy I met. Oh, he makes way better banners than me. We worked on Quick Picks and the new anime trailers.
  • Daniel Newton - Whenever I run into trouble, I ask Daniel a lot. He was always thinking out of the box. He revolutionized the discussion and wiki in the community.
  • FoxxFireArt - I do the wiki report for Foxx. He does the community spotlight that promotes the hard work that people put in their blogs, reviews, and wiki.
  • Acura Max - A cool dude and a mod from Screened who got me into Star Trek and sci-fi anime genre. He is one dedicated guy who helps out doing the trailers for both Screened and Anime Vice. Plus, we finish the Gargantia, Robotics;Notes, and Valvrave Season 1 anime project together.

List of Accomplishments

Since I'm rushing this, I will miss some stuff.

  • I finished a lot of anime projects, mainly episode summaries. I'll put a chunk of what I did from 2012 to 2013 on the bottom of the blog since I never did a 2nd anniversary blog. I recorded them in this summary list.

With BigHeart711 and Acura Max's help, we did 7 seasons worth of anime trailers.

  1. Spring 2012
  2. Summer 2012
  3. Fall 2012
  4. Winter 2013
  5. Spring 2013
  6. Summer 2013
  7. Fall 2013
  • Became an Admin for Sket Dance and Btooom Wikia.
  • Met Tom Pinchuk at Anime Expo 2013. It was my first con.
  • Started the cultural interviews. See An Entire World of Anime Fans! -- THE VICE PIT article. It was an awesome project to do. I got a chance to hear folks' stories about their anime experiences in their homelands.
  • Became a mod for Anime Vice on Sept. 12, 2013.

Thank you for reading. I hope you guys and gals will help improve the community by participating in the discussions and contributing to the wiki. If you need help, I'll be there.

Past Wiki Projects (2012-2013)

1. Fairy Tail

October of 2010 to May 2011 (now) The first anime I tackled when I joined Animevice. It was interesting because I watch Fairy Tail and was looking for more info. This is why I found and Animevice.
