Greetings Anime Vice Community, It been quite a few weeks since the last community spotlight, and it was probably one of my more controversial ones to day. Yeah, it was that one where someone couldn't take the joke that used that one image from Highschool of the Dead to promote the wiki tasks. That doesn't mean I'm going to try and spotlight everything that's gone on in the absence of the last one. We're just going to hit the spotlights (thus the name of the segment). In the biggest news for Anime Vice, we have this really slick look for all the Whiskey Media sites. The biggest stars of last week are the behind the scene staff at Whiskey Media. Everyone should take this opportunity to thank them for all this hard work.
Last week the highly anticipated release of Evangelion 2.0 was released and that movie on Blu-ray was amazing. If you haven't seen the movie yet, go check out the movie's profile page and watch Tom Pinchuk's video review of the movie. This is the one that introduces the latest character to the long standing Evangelion series, Makinami Mari Illustrious. After watching the movie, I can understand what Anno meant by wanting her to "break Eva". Tom has also undertaken the task of reviewing nearly all the series that were recently suggested. Remember to comment on his articles to show your appreciation. He's purposely looking for series that can be viewed via official streams so users can join in.

There is a new Task Initiative that's been going on for a week, and I want to bring it to your attention. For this we need some really gung-ho wiki editors. The staff are looking to have these profiles formatted to fit the Wiki Style Guide to bring some uniformity to character pages. It helps to build a better Database. The wiki pages have been steadily growing to make some really impressive pages.

Wonderful Wikis 

In the time since the last spotlight, we have had a lot of new users join Anime Vice who have dome some major work. For years the manga pages were barren and had no information on them. I'm speaking of users such as AnnaBananaPiFace314psicomanaticaMechanical_Ape,takashichea, and fire_star. A lot of thanks to these users for some really hard work.

Get cracking through the Wiki Tasks so I can have even more pages to spotlight next week. Write lost of text and add images, where appropriate. Check out my Character Format List above for 35 example pages.

I haven't blogged in a while. Not because of laziness but because Queen's day is close and I want to do everything in one go. I'll blog then.

Any way good Community spotlight this time ^^

Agreed and followed. Apparently I wasn't following you either so I've done that too.

Spamming isn't welcome or allowed. This thread is to praise and notice those who have worked hard throughout the site, spamming the thread isn't very respectful.

I know, just had to relieve a little frustration. I get a little angry sometimes at them, anyways, I already alerted a Moderator. All is well. : )

That's just another spam-bot guys, you can't reason with them, you can only ban them. I've taken care of it.

I like to think I play a small role in that.

@takashichea:

I want to spotlight users and page content. I just sometimes need users to bring these things to my attention. As big as my ego is, I'm not omniscient.

@takashichea:
It takes more than a profile just existing and having pictures to be spotlighted. It has to be filled with interesting information and go with the style guide. Such as my KMF page.
