Community Spotlight

Greetings Anime Vice Community, we took a little break from the weekly Community Spotlight last week due to all the craziness at Whiskey Media headquarters thanks to the Second Annual Big Live Live Show Live. It was eight hours of live, online craziness (minus one prerecorded segment). I spent the whole day moderating in the Anime Vice chat room, and I had a great time talking to many of you. I was also able to tempt some newer users to check out some of anime/manga latest. Check out my blog for the Live Show Review, and if you unfortunately missed it. The entire 8+ hours has been archived over on Giant Bomb. Sadly, our own Tom Pinchuk couldn't make it this year, but there is still a ton of great stuff to watch.

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!!

Congratulations! Awesome community spotlight sauce.

And man, 500,000 is a lot of wiki points. That's a lot of hard work.

Good job everyone!

I got a bit embarrassed that my testing blog got spotlighted. I was just testing the list functions to see if it works.

We need more people for the streamlining tasks. Come on guys! Don't be shy. You can do it.

oh hey, how did my work of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai got up there? I didn't even ask for it.

Thanks FoxxFireArt.

With the wiki boom, we also had a lot of anime threads posted. Good job to the active users!

Good job to those who juggled school and wiki editing! It's tough to do that.
