Anime Vice News

Community Spotlight 07/15/2011

FoxxFireArt runs down the best of the latest community content.

Greetings Anime Vice Community, it's another week and easily the biggest news of Anime Vice of the last few weeks has to be the stellar Whiskey Media design staff giving the site an amazing update that looks amazing. Be sure to voice out your gratitude for their fine work. Tom and sora-thekey returned from Anime Expo 2011 with some really nice pictures and some videos to come of their shenanigans. There was also a nice amount of content for this week's spotlight. We even had a user submit a new guide to a series you should check out Beginner's Guide to Eyeshield 21.

Sentai Filmworks release of Highschool of the Dead was released two weeks ago in the U.S. on both DVD & Blu-ray was this last. You can read my article review on the Blu-ray. If you have been watching or reading a series you enjoy. You users should check out the Review tools this site has and let us all known what you think.

Anime Vicer of the Month: JUNE

Just on the chance you might of missed it. One of the users fire_star started his own spotlight where he will showcase the top users of the month. The June Vicer of the Month has already been posted. While it sounds a bit self-serving, the first recipient is myself. I won the first monthly spotlight based on my work in the wiki and carious other areas. All users are capable of winning and they are always looking for nominations in the forums. Be sure to vote for who you think should be the July Vicer of the Month. HERE

It was just after last week's spotlight was posted, one of Anime Vice's own moderators, sickVisionz, reached over 100,000 wiki points to join the 100K club of users. He's been doing some amazing work on the Galaxy Express 999 series.

Remember, if you would like to submit something for the Spotlight. You can send me a PM, but please be sure to add "Spotlight" to the subject line. I can't stress how important that is because it might just be lost in my Inbox when I clear it. Even if you have worked on something yourself and are really proud of your work. Get to work, and make more content for the next Spotlight!! Jana!!

Great work on the new Community Spotlight, FoxxFireArt. Thank you very much for featuring my Figure Blog on my new Charlotte E. Yeager figure from ALTERCorporation.

Unfortunately, the links are all broken again (404 Errors).

Awesome job everyone! Keep up the good work and making this site better everyday!

Some of the links are broken. 
AURON570on July 15, 2011 at 5:40 p.m.
wow was that all last week? It feels like ages since I wrote that blog on It's The Only NEET Thing To Do, I want the next episode already!
metalsnakezeroon July 15, 2011 at 7:24 p.m.
May want to check some of those links FoxxFireArt, most of them are leading in to 404 pages.

@metalsnakezero:

Yeah, I really don't know what's been going on with the links. I'm testing them before I submit, but text keeps getting added when submitted. I'm not staff and this wasn't linked to the forums. I have no way to fix the links.

To see the links, remove the text "news/" from the link and they work.

@AURON570:

I have been writing these for the past three weeks but communications issues have kept them from getting published on the front page.

sotyfan16on July 15, 2011 at 7:50 p.m.
@FoxxFireArt:
The same goes for my Beginner's Guide. I PMed it last week and heard back from a Staff member but then nothing. Hopefully it will be rectified.
sora_thekey moderator on July 15, 2011 at 8:14 p.m.

I made it into the Spotlight! yay!

@FoxxFireArt: Great job on this article by the way!

takashichea moderator on July 17, 2011 at 12:55 a.m.

Everyone did an awesome work. It's a been a nice summer for everyone on Anime Vice.

I'm glad my friends are on that spotlight page. They did a good job!

Thanks FoxxFireArt!

Edit: We got Newten reporting on Fairy Tail with his weekly Fairy Tail news. Hooray!
