@Sonata: Followup Question: Can Moderators be able to delete single images out of other users, or do they also have the "Delete All" button (same as the one Ethan mentioned)?

@Bigheart711: We can delete images on at a time, but the staff members can delete everything instantly if they have to.

Well, frankly, I find this a little bit silly. 
 
I find the fact that the other whiskey media made laugh at animevice hippocrite because, honestly, Comics books girl are not especially unsexy and Giantbomb half giant bomb offtopic are about things like "I can't find a girlfriend !"... 
 
But still, "Dura lex sed lex". (This isn't a condom mark... I assure you). 
 
But I will miss graphic image... :-( 
 
Ah and yes, it will take time for me to remove all the image, so, if you can be patient. It could be nice. Thank you.

@Ryokan: Why do you find this a bit silly ? We are trying to increase traffic to Anime Vice, and attempting to stop the remarks made about Anime Vice by other WM sites, how is any of this negative ?

I kinda think this is a good thing considering we have things like Pokemon on this site, to have an extreme kid favorite often web searched by six year olds side by side with hardcore hentai images. and the defense of you dont have to click on it if you dont want to is idiotic, you still see the default image regardless.... So for the younger viewers keeping some images PG-13 to mid range R is a good idea... On the sex stuff anyway don't you dare tone down the violence AV! :)  R rated YAY XXX Rated NAY
ETV1 
Oh and the hentai characters and movies can stay provided the images are kept free of the "naughty parts" so you hentai nuts did not really lose anything, if you want to read about a character come here, if you want to see them in the way you do, hit google images with safe search off.

@Kelleth: Right, but this is also affecting how the other WM sites look at us, which is a bonus included.

Sort of - "Anime is for Jerks" has become enough of a meme at Giant Bomb that if we were all as saintly as Mother Teresa that probably wouldn't change. However, improving our perception at Screened and ComicVine is still possible, which is always good.

@Count_Zero: Regardless, it still shows that we are making an effort, which is all that we can do.

@Count_Zero: Meh, if someone wants to blindly hate you there is nothing you can do about it. I think the ban on porno images was to make the site not an emporium for cartoon porn and to get it back on Google. I'd facepalm if it was done so we can be friendsies and BFF with other WM sites... which will never be the case as long as they enjoy hating anime and anime fans.

Remember, it's a blind hatred of anime. There is nothing you can show them to change their mind because they can't see it.

I've got to say I fully agree, anime is hard to defend as is without having the site mired in hentai. Having it not show up in google instant must kill figures.

Yep, it was done to make this site better, to focus us on what we wanted the site to be in the first place.

Is Anime Vice still de-listed on Google?

It does...traffic to the site had slowed down due to AV being removed from Google's search engine. Besides, it is hard to defend anime when there was questionable content/pages on the site that was giving people the wrong idea about AnimeVice. We are a database for all things anime/manga for people of all ages to enjoy....not a hub of hentai images and pages that gives us a bad name.

@ShadowKnight508 Exactly. Also in the OP Ethan mentions 'culturally significant' is there any? Not being an expert (cough) there's no genre defining movie is there.

[UPDATE] 7/25/11

Over the last 5 days visits to AV have increased by 50% and all most all these new visits are coming from Google searches. This means, I hope, that google has added us back into their normal search results and no longer classifies us as an unsafe search site.

Keep up the good work making great wiki pages, great anime blogs / user articles and keeping this place safe for work.

@ethan: That is great to hear, Ethan. I am glad that we were able to weed out the images that made Google frown on AnimeVice and hopefully they will add us back to the search results soon.
