Community Spotlight 5/23/2014

We kick off the Memorial Day weekend with a spotlight on the work made by some of our most dedicated users.

Greetings, Anime Vice Community. I'd like to start off with apologizing for neglecting to write up the spotlight last week. My area had a lot of storms through much of the week that required me to keep my computer turned off through much of the day, in fear of potential blackouts. It really threw me off in trying to write up all the Shonen Trilogy reviews.

The Vice Pit returned in a big way as Tom discussed the good and bad aspects of the 2014 Spring season, and then expanded on a user question to talk about their favorite openings in anime. Surely everyone has an opinion on that one.

Over the previous week, I did manage to marathon through the entire run of ATTACK ON TITAN via Netflix streaming. That was well worth watching on the big screen. Only a few days later it was then announced that KILL LA KILL was also added to Netflix streaming.

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!!

There was some miscommunication there. I didn't know Foxx had outages, so he couldn't reply to me on Twitter or PM. I covered the community spotlight during his absence in those two weeks: Mother's Day and the last week. It's great to hear Foxx is back.

Here is an expanded version that I prepared today when I thought Foxx wasn't going to do the spotlight today.

Bold Battle

The Battle forums are a little slow this week due to the glitches, but our battle folks are hanging in there. The battle threads are one of the main attractions in the community. Sure, it can get ugly, but all competitive sports can get that way. If you're new, please check Dream's Battle Forum Rules 2.0. on how to be a good player. These are the popular threads:

Linking to Tom's profile leads to a 404 error. Just letting you know.

Yeah I have the same problem. I always get 404 and have not been able to visit Tom's page for a long time. A shame because we haven't interacted as much as I might've liked.
