Anime Vice News

Community Spotlight: 2/17/12

With Valentine's Day over with, you can turn your attention to your one true love: Anime Vice!

Hope you all in the Anime Vice Community had a good week. It was Valentine's Day on Tuesday. If you didn't know, the holiday is celebrated rather differently in Japan than it is in most Western cultures. If you're curious about it. Be sure to check out page in the wiki. We had some really nice articles for the front page, a lot of great wiki submissions, and Nick and I covered the latest Amateur vs. Expert: Persona 4 for Ep. 17. How was your week?

In respect to the latest episode of Persona 4 up on The Anime Network, right now. If you could date any anime character this weekend, who would you select?

Anime AMV Showcase

Seeing how ti's the week of Valentine's Day, I felt that having a pairing AMV would be appropriate. Rather than pick something overly cute. I went with something a little darker and more crazy. I'm not a fan of Kelly Clarkson, but the AMV was pretty well done.

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!!

Always something I've been meaning to ask. With the Wonderful Wikis, why are some bolded and others not?

ShadowKnight508 moderator on Feb. 17, 2012 at 6 p.m.

@Wales: I believe that FoxxFireArt makes some of the listed pages bolded because those are the pages that either are well-written, formatted properly, or just because those were the pages that he seemed to like the most.

In other words, major props to everyone who's hard work in both the AV Wiki Database or in the blogs/forums was featured within this week's AV Community Spotlight!

@Wales@ShadowKnight508:
I have no idea. I bold them all when I submit. I've just been having weird glitches with the text editor where some alterations don't seem to stick.
