Anime Vice Community Starlets - Are you on the list?

We spotlight awesome users on Anime Vice

If you are a regular user among the other Whiskey Media sister sites. You might have come across the weekly Community Spotlights. Those few should already know the gist of these articles, but for those of you still in the dark. Allow me to explain. The Community Spotlight is designed to bring notice to the community at large the accomplishments of some of the lesser known members. To shine light on those who may fall through the cracks or general awesomeness from users. These can be from a variety of actions members perform on the site every day. Writing user reviews, filling out the wiki, making lists, and writing blogs. We would prefer the content stay generally on topic of manga/anime for this showcase.
 
This is only the first of many to come, and one should be expected once a week (taking in consideration certain holidays). Content doesn't have to just be informative. It can also be stuff that's just really funny.
 

Wonderful World of Wikis

A special note should go to member Obsidian609 for being the top wiki point earner on Anime Vice (currently at over 357K points), and took on the daunting task for making profiles for every different breed of Pokemon. Another honorable mention for this first Spotlight goes to EganTheVile1 for his work the old school Voltron and Transformers series. Following are a list of wiki pages with impressive amount of information.

Reviewed Wonders

Writing reviews is one of my favorite hobbies on Anime Vice, but I'm not the only one. Several users really seem to enjoy showing off their opinions as well. If you'd enjoy being listed among these users. Go write a review that impresses the community and get it displayed for the Spotlight.
  

Lovable Lists

Users love to make their lists and at times they can be pretty informative. Though, many are just about lists of peoples' favorite "hot girls". Here, I want to spotlight some more unique and helpful lists.
 

Blog-o-sphere 

To start things off I'll show you some examples of the kind of posts that are pretty impressive. Staff member Ethan put together a full FAQ guide for just about any questions you may have on Anime Vice and it's tools. Mod sickVisionz is trying to organize members on his project to over come One Piece's domination of the wiki pages due to the actions of a single, eccentric user. (I wonder who that could be? he,he) If you enjoy Naruto and BLEACH, you should sign up for his task. Also, a while back. I wrote a detailed blog post giving tips on how to fill out a wiki page for an anime episode. Some users even wrote posts with really useful news. Anime Vice does not lack for some really good blogs.

Formidable Forums 

Not many users make something just a forum. Most often it's also posted as a blog, but that's what makes good forum posts so valuable. We really need some good forum posts for this Spotlight feature. Keep them coming.

If you have seen a wiki page, blog post, or user review you find note worthy for the spotlight. Have you worked on something special on Anime Vice? Tell me about it in a PM. Just be sure to put "Community Spotlight" in the subject line.

Thanks for featuring my "Elevator" list. I really should update it since there's more of them in Anime and Manga than I think. :)

Nice, we have a spotlight to call our own!
 
Also, Episode #4 of the AV-cast shall be uploaded very soon...
ZombiePieon Nov. 5, 2010 at 1:12 p.m.
Looks great man! Keep up the good work and hopefully it will motivate users to do great stuff on this site!
JJOR64on Nov. 5, 2010 at 1:13 p.m.
Great post!  Hopefully we can keep making content for this thing.
Daniel_Newton moderator on Nov. 5, 2010 at 1:17 p.m.
Cool to see this up. 
Hmm, wonder if I could come up with some snazzy header images for next week's article...
damswedonon Nov. 5, 2010 at 2:01 p.m.
Still pissed at myself for posting that review on the series page instead of the episode page. 
But still great to see a new feature.

Send me a PM when it is.

I'm a little shocked at how fast this has climbed into the most viewed segment.

So, does anyone like my remake version of the Anime Vice logo? It's a little sloppy. If anyone is curious. That Japanese says "koukyou no supottoraito".
 
@DocHaus: 
I'd say PM me about it so I can bring it up next week, but looks as if Ethan already asked you about this. 
 
@zombiepie:
Thanks, I've been writing a lot of articles this week for Anime Vice.
 
My format was a mixture of your Giant Bomb and Inferiorego's Comic Vine version. Just with my own twist.
I certainly hope more users get involved. 
 
Only downside of being the writer for this is that I really shouldn't display my own works. I did show off two of my works in the wiki and a blog.

@Newten:
I made a picture for them to use in the header. I really have no idea what so ever as to why they used my stylized self illustration for this segment on the site. I don't care that they did. It's nice. It just seems to imply this is about me and not the community.
 
I also formatted the article header so I can replace the background image. Each week I plan to make something different.
metalsnakezeroon Nov. 5, 2010 at 4:53 p.m.
Wow, this is a pretty cool idea.
buhssuhton Nov. 5, 2010 at 5:29 p.m.
Very impressive on the Knightmare Frames
sotyfan16on Nov. 5, 2010 at 5:35 p.m.
Man, two blog mentions in the span of a day?! Things are looking up in the world. I'll have to increase my output though. I think PenguinDust deserves some recognition. Y'all can check out his profile and see for yourself.


@FoxxFireArt:


If I wrote something like this I'd probably include some of my work, too. For the background picture I'm the redhead (or so I think)! And for the AV logo I think the Rising Sun effect is a nice, detailed touch. I think this is another cool addition to the site and will hopefully draw in new users and current users will become more involved.
Daniel_Newton moderator on Nov. 5, 2010 at 5:50 p.m.
@FoxxFireArt: Oh no the image you've used is great, I wouldn't replace that, I was thinking about what I did for the Halloween article, I could perhaps make headers for each section of the article.
obscurefanon Nov. 5, 2010 at 7:44 p.m.
Really cool idea to spotlight the great contributors here on AV, I hope you guys continue doing it because you found some really good members of the community and there are plenty more here who deserve some props too. Great job everybody ^^

Goes to show to the people who thought that Anime Vice was a weak link in the Whiskey Media family. This site is well run by the users!
 
Thanks for this Ethan this is a great post!
(Biased - I'm in that list!)
FoxxFireArt moderator on Nov. 5, 2010 at 11:14 p.m.
@sotyfan16:
I sure hope more users start posting content.
 
@Newten: 
Oh, I see your meaning. I don't think that would be necessary. I'm not planning on covering as many topics in every single post. It depends on the amount of user content.
 
@buhssuht:
Thanks. I was rather proud of that page.

Technically, aren't all the sites community run as far as wiki and blogs?
 
Uh, I wrote all of this article. I don't think Ethan would refer to himself in the first person, as it says in the "Blog-o-sphere" section.
EganTheVile1on Nov. 5, 2010 at 11:24 p.m.
WOW! Thank you so much for acknowledging my work on Voltron and Transformers G1, major appreciation for the nod!
sotyfan16on Nov. 6, 2010 at 1:41 a.m.
@EganTheVile1:
G1 is the shit! Since I'm like a young buck I watched the whole thing on YouTube a couple years back. My first Transformers experience was the animated movie (which was epic!).
sora_thekey moderator on Nov. 6, 2010 at 8:48 p.m.
@FoxxFireArt: My bad.... Thanks for that Foxx! (Didn't notice the signature after the post)
SilverZeoon Nov. 6, 2010 at 9:58 p.m.
Okay, I am going to add to the site so I can get a mention on here, if not one of my favorite pages!
SilverZeoon Nov. 6, 2010 at 9:59 p.m.
How about a catergory to setting up some information of some obscure anime or characters? Like Princess Knight or such?
