In addition to our World-Class, Best-of-Breed, Top-Shelf, AAA, Marquee Editorial Product, Anime Vice features a massive database powered by user submissions. Those submissions are subject to an approval system that involves heavy moderation for new or anonymous users that gradually opens up more options as the user contributes quality data to the site. It's like an RPG, except instead of grinding orcs, you're contributing to a great community of like-minded enthusiasts. How seriously awesome is that?
Until a user accumulates enough points (1000) to gain the ability to make live edits to the site, that user's submissions will go through a moderation queue that is monitored by the Anime Vice staff, as well as a team of volunteer moderators from the community. Our aim is to have new submissions moderated within 24 hours. You will receive a private message on your Anime Vice user profile once your submission has been approved or rejected, and a history of your submissions can be accessed at anytime from within your profile.
Points are awarded to users who submit quality content to the site. Each time any of your submissions are approved, you gain points. Accumulate enough points over time and you gain access to various abilities on the site, listed below:
A franchise is the overall property, which can consist of anime series, manga series, novels, games, drama CDs, etc. For the moment we only have anime series and manga/novel series. So for example, within the Dragon Ball franchise you have the manga Dragon Ball, and the anime series Dragon Ball, Dragonball Z, and Dragonball GT.
The heroes, villains, and side characters. We have a single character page for each character within a franchise. For example, Gurren Lagann's Simon has both his standard TV anime self and his Gurren Lagann High School Version self described on his page, instead of having a separate page for each.
Any place, from the fantasy country of Magic Knight Rayearth's Cephiro to the club room for the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's SOS Brigade, belongs here. While it's possible to have a mobile location, if its primary role is that of transportation, it should be an object.
Specific items, like the Core Drill in Gurren Lagann, can have their own pages. These can also be more general, such as Card Captor Sakura's Clow Cards. Objects include vehicles, weapons, and basically any piece of technology that lacks sentience.
Those lovely people whose names we all glaze over at during the credits. Each person should have at least one manga, anime series, or movie credited to them in order to have a page.
The people who pay the aforementioned! Companies include both Japanese and American companies, and they can be credited with the appropriate series by visiting that series and attaching the company as either the US publisher or the Japanese publisher. If you don't see a list of credits on the company page yet, don't worry-- it's high on the to-do list.
Often you'll find pages that need to be combined, deleted or renamed on the site. Combinations and deletes are possible but can only be handled by someone with staff or moderator privileges. You can either contact us directly or leave a note on the Delete/Combine boards that describes the problem and we'll try to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
Anime Vice is powered by an in-house, structured wiki platform designed specifically for and by Whiskey Media.
The "Whiskey Powered" platform benefits from the following open source technologies:
It's in the works. We plan to provide free access to a large portion of our database for non-commercial projects.
