Community Spotlight: 12/9/11

Warm yourself up with some hot cocoa and a dose of the community spotlight!

We may be nearing the end of the year, but it's only the end of this week. That makes it time for the Anime Vice Community Spotlight. Wiki editing submissions were a tad thin this week, but that says nothing about the quality of the work shown. It was nice getting to greet some new users I saw submitting in the wiki. Growing our community should always be just as important to us as growing the database. Every now and again, be sure to go and check the New Users section on the site. Give them a post on their wall to make them feel welcome.

Nick and I had some serious issues with last week's Persona 4 episode that we discussed in the latest Amateur vs. Expert, but I really doubt we're going to be having that same issue with Episode 10. User sotyfan16 gave us his thoughts on the anime series Girls Bravo, and I wrote up my own thoughts dealing with some of the heavy controversy in the images shown in the anime series BLEACH. It all made for some great conversation this week.

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!!

Major props are in order to all who's work in either the AV Wiki Database or the forums through their blogs that made this week's edition of the AV Community Spotlight.

It's that stressful time of year for college students because most of our wiki editors are in college or some in high school. With regards to that, congrats to them for juggling wiki editing and school.

Congrats to my teams and everyone for taking time to contribute to Anime Vice! Keep those comments and wiki editing going.

Oh! We should have a thread for nominating community members who has the best Christmas theme on their profile page and their avatar.
This thread is booming
