Community Spotlight

We kind of had a little break for the Anime Vice Community Spotlight due to a minor communication issue, but that's water under the bridge. The past few weeks have been a busy one for us, and we have a new intern handling some of the duties. I hope everyone makes Fullmetal216 feel welcome. Be sure to visit his profile and SPAM his wall with greeting messages. Now, lets get back to business.

GodLen returned last week to covering the big Shonen Three series after the week's break, Tom posted his closing video review onFullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood, and the text review of the live-action Gantz movie. Sotyfan16 has begun what he hopes to be a regular feature for the site that he calls " When LOL Isn't Enough". In the industry, FUNimation announced their full cast for Fairy Tailand added more episodes to their online site. I was also able to share a special spotlight editorial of the Women of the Anime and Manga Industry. The comments have been great. I hope to be able to share more with you.

Wonderful Wikis

I created a large number of Wiki tasks this week for both Persona 4 and Fairy Tail. In under a week, all but two were completed. We went from almost no information on Persona 4 to swarming with data. The users have been pretty busy in the wiki. There was another boom of profiles to showcase. I love seeing this. I also noticed that Destinyheroknight has been doing some editing in the Negima!series. For anyone in Whiskey Media that doesn't think anything goes on here. They have no been looking through our wiki.

Streamline Story Arc Initiative

Some of the issues we have been trying to cover across both Comic Vine and Anime Vice are how our character wiki pages from long running series have become overly wordy in Major Story Arcs. So much so that they can be intimidating for users to read. Wiki editors should be keeping an eye on the Wiki Tasks board, because special tasks will be created to try and slim down some of the character pages. In preparation, I went through and deleted much of my own work on some character profiles in place of a more condensed history to serve as examples.

Another great article, FoxxFireArt. Cheers to all of the members who's hard work was featured in this week's AV Spotlight and congrats to all who worked on the Wiki Tasks to help flesh out the Persona 4 and Fairy Tail Wiki Database.

sotyfan16on Aug. 26, 2011 at 1:48 p.m.
There are continuing to be some good blogs and forum topics. The Community is as engaging as ever. I will do my best to contribute fun and interesting material for the AV duders to enjoy and I look forward to seeing more good stuff in the future.
 
@FoxxFireArt:
The Spotlight pic is cool. What's it from?
Destinyheroknighton Aug. 26, 2011 at 2:46 p.m.

Awesome, I'm in this week :)

Nice job everyone

@sotyfan16:

It from Negima!

takashichea moderator on Aug. 26, 2011 at 4:24 p.m.

Congrats everyone!

Congrats to the teams for Sket Dance and Gosick! They did great!

It's a Persona and Fairy Tail boom these past 2 weeks. There is plenty of small wiki submissions. That is awesome.

Edit:

@Destinyheroknight: I'm glad FoxxFireArt noticed and spotlighted your work. I forgot to report your work to him.

Streamlining - This is going to a bit tough. The episode/ or volume linking is out of the question, right? I will do my best to make them concise.

takashichea moderator on Aug. 26, 2011 at 5:32 p.m.

Well, I have to give out some personal recognitions:

  • Auron570 - Working on Hanasaku Iroha and My Ordinary Life episodes' plot summary for the past month. He has put blogs about slice of life anime. He is my team member on Gosick.
  • Halberdierv2 - Works on Gosick characters. His work, Kujo Kazuya is up there. Also, a member on my Gosick team.
  • Annabanana - Works on an insane amount of franchises: Fairy Tail, Blue Exorcist, Beelzebub, Buster Keel, and Sket Dance.
  • Piface314 - Did an awesome job on reformatting the characters page for Sket Dance and the Shaman King volume page.
  • Hibaru - Works on Nurarihyon no Mago and Sket Dance.

(both of three above users are my teammates for Sket Dance.

  • Sarumarine - Works on Black Lagoon characters
  • MadPierriot - In addition to his wonderful blogs, he has been doing minor edits on Mushi-shi, Ghost in the Shell, and Green Blood.
  • ShadowKnight508 - Despite his college is on right now, he has been adding contents and stuff to the Heaven Lost Property or the Sora no Otoshimono volumes.
  • Wales - Big guy on Persona.
  • Obscurefan - Wales's partner who help on Persona pages.
  • DestinyHeroKnight - Negima man.
  • Mr. XD - small submissions go a long way on couple of concepts and misc pages.
  • AnimeBookWorm7 - Added a big plot on those small anime pages like Haruhi Suzumiya and Ef - A Tale of Memories.
  • Dekken - Works on Seikon no Qwaser, Manyuu Hikenchou, and History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi.
  • FoxxFireArt - Provided pages for Gosick, Sora no Otoshimono, wiki tasks for Persona and Fairy Tail, and work on Strike Witches, Slut Girl, and other things.

I did this because we need a bigger turnout for this spotlight. It's just like my social event today. Only 15 out of 60 people came. Let's give some love to this spotlight!

If I embarrass you, I apologize in advance. I just bringing out a huge list that I have been keeping a tab on.

I will mass pm you guys if we still have low turnout rate.

Go Anime Vice!

Edit: I forgot about Buhssuht who is out doing wiki tasks and EgantheVile1 who is working on Transformers and GI Joe.

Well I may as well let you guys know that I won't be able to work on the wiki or doing much blogging until September rolls around, on account of my bandwidth having hit 100% earlier this week.

Don't worry about it. Thanks for the heads up. Halberdierv2, Anna, Piface314, Wales, and most of the wiki editors including I are in school. As for the others, they have real jobs. I know that they want to relax after work instead of wiki editing.

It's going to be slow this fall.

We need Ethan to publish the data porn for the summer months: May, June, July, and August. This image is found on Anime Vice's Facebook galleries. I think this summer is the biggest peaks of community's work (blogs, forums, etc.).

It could be called "Summer Bash Data Porn" or something cooler.

Sarumarineon Aug. 27, 2011 at 10:11 a.m.

Heh, I hope I'm doing okay on the wiki stuff. I know you can always edit it later but I don't want to make extra work.

EganTheVile1on Aug. 27, 2011 at 8:50 p.m.
Good work all!

@Sarumarine:

Just be sure to check out the Wiki Style Guide and look to some of the pages spotlighted in this Community Spotlight as examples. That should help you out for some inspiration.

It's perfectly fine to edit stuff later. I tend to do a lot of work like that. I do a lot of writing, then go back and check for errors.

@sotyfan16:

That's a picture of Mana Tatsumiya from Negima!.

@ShadowKnight508:

There are only two wiki tasks left from the Persona 4.

takashichea moderator on Sept. 27, 2011 at 12:05 a.m.

Hmm. I'm checking through your spotlight pages, FoxxFireArt. I noticed you spotlighted Anna Kyoyama twice.

The last time was on June 2, 2011. It's no big deal. I check for duplicates or any odd things.

From my Shaman King Historian Blog.

I'm checking through these pages to make a historian blog and some recognition blogs for October.
