If it's not up there, comment.
I just feel like there definitely is something AV lacks. I'd really like to help, but of course it isn't worth it if nobody wants it.
I went with more beginner guides. Hopefully, before summer vacation ends and school starts, I will have two posted.
I think more news in general. Our Wiki is vast and growing. The only thing that then differs AV from ANN is the amount of news due to ANN being purely about anime/manga and that is what the Staff there is for. We do not have any full-time Staff for AV anymore. For podcasts there is AlphaVictor and Pass the Whiskey. Video content, umm, what kind? Trailers or content like my Dunce Cap? Highlighting old(er) anime/manga is hit or miss just about everywhere. New and good anime/manga is easier to report on and could easily be done if someone followed at least one show each season and put out an article. However, there are already users to take upon themselves to blog about what they are watching each new season and give previews for the next. As for the Guides, I know of 3 in the works right now. I've done 7 or so since I became a member here and while I could have done more, and want to do more, I have to agree with FoxxFireArt and say that I'm not going to do things everyday or anything because I'm not getting paid as a Staff member to provide everything I can for the site.Feel free to change this.
We have been isolated. Why not have a community wide game, an Icebreaker, or something that will bring the divided whiskey media sites together. This would promote love for each other. (Sounds strange, but I feel that is the main goal)
The staff and the mod of Anime Vice has been great.
AV needs full time staff to make more original video content:
@DocHaus: Ethan has always indicated that he and the rest of the Whiskey Media higher ups are content with the site as a wiki only database. The fact that the site does have freelance writers is a blessing in and of itself. Enjoy the content the site provides, and if you want more comprehensive coverage I strongly recommend (as I do on Screened, Tested, and even Giant Bomb) you go to other sites on top of Anime Vice.
I'm not making an announcement, I'm not saying anything official. But the idea we're kicking around is to make this site even more community driven. Meaning not hiring a full time video or news staffer.
How would we make it more community driven? Maybe... MAYBE... if the project solidifies, we would develop some tools that would allow users to promote other user content. Like blog posts could get up voted and eventually featured on the home page because of it sort of thing. That's just a possible example, not something we're currently coding. This idea could also allow us to publish even other niche community driven sites. So if it happens, it will be an important initiative.
There is seemingly no 'perfect' way to truly say goodbye. So I gathered a bunch of them!
