Don't be so apologetic, you made a good point and most people got it. Sometimes you just have to roll your eyes and ignore the people whose heads it went waaaay over.

What part of LOLDONGS didn't they understand? =)

Are you kidding it is a site for anime and RPG just as the other. If I want to do anime i will, if i want to do rpging I will. I dont think its fair how you blame us for doing waht we do best"
Just for the record...this isn't really an "RP site" per se. We're happy to have it on the forums as users want, but it's not really the focus of the site...^^;"
so is the focus of the site to just make wiki submissions

What would be the point of that? Correct me if I'm wrong, but the purpose of the site is to provide a community to people who want to learn about and discuss anime/manga, and to provide a well of information for them to draw upon. Wiki submits are important, but not the purpose. They are more like the means to the end.

At least that's how I interpret it.

I would say that the focus of the site is to be a destination for in-depth information on anime/manga/Jpop culture. You've got my news posts to keep you updated on what's going on, as well as my access into the industry-- I think of myself as sort of a bridge between the users and the people who are making the stuff, and I always try to get answers to users' questions. On top of that you have an information cycle through the wiki: you plug in the information you have, and other people plug in the information that you want, and eventually we have most of the information right here in one handy spot.

There's a secondary focus, but only slightly secondary, which is social in nature. You come to the site, you post on the forums, write a blog and reviews, roleplay, and (dun-da-dunn!) make friends. Granted, it's not as sophisticated a social networking structure as MySpace or Facebook, but it's still a great way to meet people with similar interests.

That all make sense?

Professional Gia saddens me. But yea, just to reiterate, the site's focus is on the anime, with the wiki supplementing the anime/manga community.

What's wrong with professional Gia? In the right moments, of course. <_<

I just feel bad making inappropriate comments when you're being professional.

"It would be kind of nice if there were more ways to filter the forums-- like maybe make it so that when you hit the Forums button, only threads of the type you select are shown, or something along those lines. Not that I mind seeing the RP threads in and of themselves, but it'd be nice to let the lines they take up be filled with other threads. (And I'm sure people who are primarily interested in RP threads might want to make it so by default they ONLY see RP thraeds, etc.)

Dunno if that's possible, but if it sounds interesting I'll keep it in mind when we start looking at adding on features...once everything we CURRENTLY have is working, of course. :)"
Isn't that exactly what the "My Favorite" board is for?

Yea, that's how I've got it set up myself. Favorite'd General, Manga, Anime, and Off-topic.

Dawnwalker, yeah, but it'd be nice if it was the default view, from a sheer convenience standpoint. ;)
