Community Spotlight 4/19/12

I was strolling through the Wiki Wonderland and saw something amazing. This is what I saw.

Has everyone been having a good week? The Anime Vice community has had a real swelling in some rather fascinating new users, and I've been seeing that in the blogs. I hope to be spotlighting their work in the Community Spotlight frequently. In the news, Tom posted free codes for not one but two really impressive anime-inspired MMOs. Be sure to check the news page to join in. He also gave us a surprise review of the new NARUTO spinoff, ROCK LEE & HIS NINJA PALS.

Though the wiki page submissions were a little slim this week. That has no bearing on the quality of work. I think some users are still adjusting to the change in days we are currently using for the spotlight. Not that I'm one to talk. I haven't been doing much editing this week. There's something big on the horizon that I've been setting up, and I can't weight to show you. (That's not a typo. It's foreshadowing.). I have been seeing some new names in the wiki queue this week. I hope you senior users are checking out their work and making them feel welcome. We're here to have fun, and you all welcome to join in.

Anime AMV Showcase

I know I was kind of a tease with the selection of AMV last week when I mentioned two I had considered but rejected for the spotlight. Though I'm pretty firm about the BLACK LAGOON one. I've had a change of heart about the FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST BROTHERHOOD one. My issue was that the song had been used in a previous AMV I spotlighted, but I notice that was one was recently removed from YouTube on copyright grounds. [WARNING] I would like to warn you before you watch this one. This will spoil the rather incredible finale of FMA:B. I wouldn't watch it if this is a series you'd like to get into.

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!!

Good job everybody

Yeah that AMV does spoil a bunch of things but it's pretty good. I still want to know what Black Lagoon AMV you're talking about. Also, have you looked at any of the AMVs I tweeted you like a month or so ago?

Congrats and good job VIcers.

Congrats everyone! Around this time, everyone is studying for finals/or midterms and working on papers which explains the wiki activity. Good luck to everyone in school! I should be studying.

Here's is the link to Rock Lee & Ninja Pals Ep. 2 wiki work since the link goes to the weekly report. I didn't think it was a complete page for a spotlight when you compared it to the Sket Dance and Fairy Tail episode wiki pages.

@takashichea:

I must have mixed up the links when I was going through the blogs list.

I have no idea how the Guilty Crown link ended up like that. I didn't write it like that, but I checked the PM where I submitted it to Tom and that is how it looked. I also bolded all of them when I wrote it. It's weird that the bold works on the Blog section but not the Wiki.
