I think that works for off-topic. I did meet someone in the Judar vs Gray Fullbuster thread and got him into Magi.
Anime Defender was working on the anime directory guide idea, but I shot him down because it's too much to maintain. Acura and I suggested using Aleasha's recommendation lists and making a recommendation directory for everyone.
@supernova7005: @Sonata: @AnimeDefender @SMXLR8 @taichokage @Baal_Raam @TheNeutralOne @Shadowchaos @CerusSerenade @Dream @Kobra678 and everyone else Since everyone is concerned over the 100 post thread, Sonata had posted the Over The Limit!: AV Battle Community Vote .Thread. I have another solution: making a Gdoc form, so everyone can fill out. Ever since I worked with sickVisionz for the Vote for Your Favorite Anime in 2013! community project, I learned how to make spreadsheets and poll forms from sickVisionz. With new idea, it will organize the battle threads more efficiently. We can keep tabs on existing battle threads. It's going to be easy. I'll make a simple poll form. You don't need a Google account. If you guys and gals would like me to start up a Battlation Gdoc list, I will be glad to do it. Edit: I underestimated the sheer number of battle threads. I think we stick with 2013 and 2014. It's more realistic.
I didn't think this idea through. Plus, I don't think we can link pages in poll forms only in spreadsheet form. I'll think of something else.
At this point, none of the current Battlations are ready to be mods. To be a mod, there is no written rule. It's up to the staff.
These are suggestions:
The sixth point is crucial. I haven't seen any Battlation users do this, taking initiative.
@takashichea: you are total right , I don't have to be a mod to do these things but for # 6 I might need some help for that one , I also have decided to be more active on the wiki's . I will need help from time to time but if I get better I would have to bother you lol
I agree. I did these things before I was a mod, too. As for community project, it could be something fun like that Christmas one that Aleasha and I posted. I have been slaving at that battle archive thing. It gets tedious.
As for wiki, just ask me for help if you need it.
Just for statistical purposes, I sort of want to go through all the battle threads, and record each time a particular character is pitted against an opponent in the Battle section. That will give us an idea of who is "over used", and who we might be neglecting in terms of characters. Would that be something worth doing in your opinion @takashichea: ?
Oh, I see. There are 2 ways to tackle it.
It's time consuming, but it will worth it in the long run.
Another suggestion I'd like to add would be a monthly Character Spotlight, where someone like the Battalion of the Month chooses one or a specific group of characters(example: the Espada), and for the entire month people are encouraged to create a match-up for that character that promotes the most constructive discussion. The winner of the best battle each month could be recognized in an official thread, or could just be added to the Battalion of the Month thread.
Let me get back to you. I said the wrong thing.
I remember I said the Battlation of the Month could pick a theme, but Taichokage never said anything. I asked him. For monthly character spotlight, I thought meant setting up another poll. I was mistaken. That's why I deleted my comment.
