Community Spotlight 08/05/11

FoxxFireArt updates us on the latest community happenings!

Greetings everyone in the Anime Vice Community! Not a great deal as far as news this week, but I was able to introduce the readers to a new series that I've been enjoying in the the revival of the First Date segment for the Triage X series. Tom has been digging into bothSteins Gate and Claymore for this Watch & Learn, and staff member Coonce has started a poll in the forums to ask readers what they consume more of Comic, Manga, or Anime. You should drop in and give your vote. One of the site's favorite moderators, sora_thekey, also guest starred on the Pass the Whiskey Podcast last week.

Wonderful Wikis

I was happy to finally get a nice wide variety of submissions for this week's wiki portion of the spotlight. This gives a much better idea of just how active many of the users can be on this site. I've been running through the wiki submissions all week, and I've been seeing a lot of new users getting involved.

Blog-o-sphere

Not a lot of blogs for this week, but the ones I spotlighted are of some really good quality. I hope you are sure to check them out and leave comments.

  • Dunce Cap: Sea Creatures and Zombies Don't Need Liquor! (by: sotyfan16) HERE
  • Anime School Fact or Fiction #4: MIA special (by: madpierrot) HERE
  • Fullmetal Is Here!!! (by: CrazyCanuck) HERE
  • Shaman King Historian Blog (by: takashichea) HERE

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!!

While it's awesome to have someone nominate two of my pieces to be featured in the Weekly Spotlight, I was hoping Renton Thurston could wait since I'm not actually done with his article yet. I got some more work to add to it before it is officially completed.

Congrats to everyone that was featured in this week's AV Community Spotlight! Keep up the awesome work!

Thanks for including the Frogman volume page, but I think it doesn't deserve to be there (if you compare it with the other wiki submissions xD). Also congrats to the people that have been making submissions this week.
