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.

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.

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!!
