Anime Vice News

Community Spotlight 07/29/2011

User blogs, reviews and wikis - oh my!

I hope the Anime Vice Community is ready for the next spotlight. I took last week off. I hope you all went to enjoy Comic Vine's spectacular San Deigo Comic Con coverage. Lot of great interviews and a ton of cosplay pictures. News from the comic world is that another marriage is being wiped from continuity. Aren't you glad we have stories that actually have continuity? In big anime news, we learned this week that Nolan North of video game fame would be voicing Madara Uchiha for Naruto Shippuden. Also, Newten wrote a good article talking about the latest album release for the Panty and Stocking soundtrack. They now have more albums than series. We can't forget that the trailers for Persona 4, and the next Airbender series is coming out. No, not another live-action movie, thank %$#@ing goodness.

Wonderful Wikis

I haven't gotten any real submissions for the wiki spotlight this week. I know there are users out there submitting some great work, but I'm not psychic and I don't have all day to hunt through the wiki for it all. I want to spotlight the work going on here. I just need the users to tell me about it. Even if it's your own work.

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!!

Another great AV Community Spotlight, FoxxFireArt! Cheers to all AV members that made this week's edition of the spotlight for their hard work and efforts on the site.

takashichea moderator on July 29, 2011 at 3:12 p.m.

Sorry FoxxFireArt! I forgot turn in my intel on some of the wiki editors. I found some new guys who were becoming real story arcs specialists. Thank you FoxxFireArt for this spotlight and everyone who contributed in wiki, review, blogs, and more!

Awesome tool!
Awesome tool!

Edit: I forgot to write down their names. I use my follow feed to keep track, but it won't work if I forgot to follow them as well. Now the activity feed for the community has a wiki submissions feed. So useful!

Great job to everyone!! Let's keep the flames of the community burning bright!

Spotlight I forgot

  • Auron570's plot summary for Gosick 24
  • Halberdierv2's plot summary for Gosick 23
  • Wales's plot summary for Durarara!!'s episode 2
  • ShadowKnight508's character Kishita

I haven't been active during the week due to summer school. I will write down and push myself.

Kelleth moderator on July 29, 2011 at 4:17 p.m.

Nice Spotlight guys (hope I'll be able to blog more when my stuff arrives)

FoxxFireArt moderator on July 29, 2011 at 6:08 p.m.


I forgot about GOSICK. I even added the Franchise, Light-Novel, and Manga pages.

I don't know why, but when I use the old text editor all the links work in the Spotlight.

takashichea moderator on July 29, 2011 at 6:52 p.m.


It's all right. It's my fault for my tardiness.

I think I will do a Gosick Recognition blog next week. I have to find a nice, horizontal banner like the one you used for the community spotlight and one in Blue Exorcist (to the right). Or I can create a congratulations banner similar like these two images below.

My Limited Observations: We get some groups to tackle some more wiki projects. Gosick project, Fairy Tail project, Honey Blonde project, and Blue Exorcist Project are hot, but I don't know about the other wiki editors who are working alone.

Editors who need Supports

For Control C, Rockingham is working on the characters. We need to support him. Get some bounty tasks to stimulate wiki editing from roaming character specialists and bounty hunters.

For Transformers, EgantheVile1 posted a forum thread about stubs. We need to support him with some transformer fans.

Woo glad I made it in there, thanks for that. The new Airbender series and Persona 4 is pretty exciting indeed. :)
Fire Star moderator on July 30, 2011 at 1:20 p.m.

Great job guys !

takashichea moderator on July 30, 2011 at 3:18 p.m.


This may be a little vain of me. You can refer to my summer school log. I made it organized that you can see each week's goals. I do more work than Fairy Tail. Since Anna is absent for the past three weeks, I have been working on new Beelzebub and Blue Exorcist's plot summaries to keep the work pile low for her. This way, she will be not be overwhelmed when she has to resume wiki editing and has to catch up.

In addition, I am doing Gosick episodes with my new partners Halberdierv2 and Auron570 who are wrapping up the project. They will tackle the characters while I reformat the episodes.

The only problem with me is that I complete these goals by the end of Thursday (9PM Pacific time) due to school. I'll manage for the community.

It's up to you to choose which stuff to spotlight. I get some intel on wiki editors next week for you by checking every night on the wiki editors I followed (about ten to fifteen people). It's limited intel because there are new wiki editors on the prowl (who I don't know and followed) and most of them are quiet or shy.

Good job duders, keep it up.
