Community Spotlight: 9/2/11

Check out what happened on Anime Vice this week!

Community Spotlight

We've come to the end of the week and Whiskey Media is only a week away from it's second annual Big Live Show Live. I'm not sure we should expect anything for us at Anime Vice, but it should be fun to watch. Promotional out of the way, lets get working on ourAnime Vice Community Spotlight. Our wiki database is steadily growing to be high quality information to rival anything in the other databases. I really like that I often have too much stuff to filter through for the spotlight.

A bit of news that Tom covered is that there is finally an Evangelion 3.0 release date, and a clip of Asuka sporting that eye patch. He didn't remember any eye patch from the past, but I recall that very eye being covered at the end of End of Evangelion. Tom alsointerviewed Brendon Lindsey about the anime-inspired MMORPG REMNANT KNIGHTS. and the prize giveaways that will follow the promotion of the game. Give it a read and find out how you can win some anime box sets.

Wonderful Wikis

Users are doing some stellar work in our wiki, and we have a new member added to Anime Vice's top five wiki editors. UserAnnaBanana has recently taken the number 5 spot. Don't forget that after you finish work on the site to promote the work on Twitterand link it on other forum sites. Show them that we are the site to come to for anime and manga info.

Streamline Story Arc Initiative

As I announced in last week's spotlight, Anime Vice is trying to strengthen our wiki database by refining our character's Major Story Arc sections to be more condensed for readers. I already finished both Nami and Robin's profiles as examples, and I've nearly completed Luffy's. Trust me, trying to sum up 14 years worth of history in four paragraphs or less in each story arc is far from easy. This portion of the spotlight will be dedicated to profiles that are in need of some streamlining. Check the Wiki Task list for some high bounties. More characters can be added a interest is shown.

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!!

Go team! Looking good out there, everyone.

Destinyheroknighton Sept. 2, 2011 at 12:23 p.m.

Great job everyone :)

ShadowKnight508 moderator on Sept. 2, 2011 at 1:09 p.m.

Cheers to everyone who's hard work and tireless efforts made this week's AV Community Spotlight. My work on the Sora no Otoshimono manga volumes continues, Takashichea is helping streamline my overly-detailed character arc sections on my character pages, and I am teamed up with both AnnaBanana and Takashichea in the ongoing image/page work for upcoming Beelzebub episodes.

Waleson Sept. 2, 2011 at 3:07 p.m.
I thought we were getting rid of the hentai manga pages on the site. Or was that something else?
AURON570on Sept. 2, 2011 at 3:55 p.m.
Hopefully uploading pictures gets working again. I have so many screenshots I want to upload and caption for Hanasaku Iroha and Nichijou. >=(
FoxxFireArt moderator on Sept. 2, 2011 at 4:10 p.m.

@Wales:

We aren't removing hentai series from the database, we are just removing images of graphic nudity. Slut Girl is just as much comedy as it is sex. You also notice that I didn't use any pictures that showed nudity. The same way Comic Vine and Giant Bomb still have sex themed series.

takashichea moderator on Sept. 2, 2011 at 5:56 p.m.

Congrats everyone!

@AURON570:

Don't worry about it. I usually finish the plot summary then I upload the images two days or more after that.

@Sarumarine said:

Go team! Looking good out there, everyone.

Yeah! I'm feeling the team spirit.

@ShadowKnight508:

We should come up with a team name for Beelzebub because Sket Dance has Team W.I.K.I Nation.

  • W = Wiki
  • I = Innovation
  • K = kindness
  • I = Intelligence

It doesn't have to be an acronym.

@Destinyheroknight:

I think ShadowKnight508 works on Gintama, and I saw you two working independently. For example, you worked on it last week while ShadowKnight worked on this week.

You should partner up with him.

@Wales:

We have to get our hands dirty sometimes. We have to be open to all of the stuff. How's the Persona work going and last semester of college?

What else?

Go Anna! She's too shy to comment on this spotlight, but I know she sees it. I keep writing on her walls from time to time. Give her some love, and she'll open up.

Go EgantheVile1! He's on the transformer wiki rampage.

Go Mr. XD! He's working hard on Unbalance X2, Manyuu Hikenchou, and others. He should team up with Dekken who's working Manyuu Hikenchou as well.

Go Obsidian609! He's adding a lot of things that I couldn't keep track of.

Go Dekken! He's working on Manyuu Hikenchou's episodes.

takashichea moderator on Sept. 2, 2011 at 6:18 p.m.

@Destinyheroknight: @ShadowKnight508:

Oops. I think I made a mistake.

"Destinyheroknight worked on Negima while Shadowknight508 worked on Gintama."

I messed up the names. Yet, you should team up together on a franchise since you guys are close together.

FoxxFireArt moderator on Sept. 2, 2011 at 6:51 p.m.

@takashichea:

Shouldn't the K in WIKI be "Knowledge", and the W be "Wisdom".

Waleson Sept. 2, 2011 at 7:04 p.m.
@FoxxFireArt:  
 
Okay, I knew it was something to do with hentai. I thought with the removal of nude pictures that certain series would equally get the cut. Guess I was mistaken. 
DocHauson Sept. 2, 2011 at 7:26 p.m.
New episode of AlphaVictor taped last weekend, didn't make it in time for this spotlight but it should be up for the next one. 
 
There was a mini-episode that was posted, but I don't think I mentioned that in the forums. I assume that those involved will be slapping me for that one later. My bad fellas. My bad.
takashichea moderator on Sept. 2, 2011 at 7:31 p.m.

@FoxxFireArt:

Before I did the blog for Sket Dance project, I thought about adding Knowledge for K, but I stands for intelligence. I did not want to add the same meaning. Wisdom sounds nice though. I have to change the Intelligence to something else if I add Wisdom.

I was trying to add four different ideas for those letters. I came up with Kindness because many of us were helping other wiki editors, new and old.

Bigheart711on Sept. 2, 2011 at 8:03 p.m.
Good job as usual, all! <3
takashichea moderator on Sept. 2, 2011 at 8:24 p.m.

@Bigheart711:

Good job on your Screened work. Does Screened do community spotlight?

ZombiePieon Sept. 2, 2011 at 8:41 p.m.

@FoxxFireArt: I decided to edit the Anime Vice hentai rules to make them stricter on Giant Bomb. Now we delete images of partial nudity that suggest sexual content and have out right banned loli and shota content.

takashichea moderator on Sept. 2, 2011 at 9:02 p.m.

@ZombiePie:

Does that mean Ecchi images that somehow fall through the loophole qualify for deletion? Most of times, these images do not have nipples or genitalia? I mean one guy uploaded a tentacle image, and unfortunately, it did not violate Ethan's rules.

Edit:

Please check the comment for that image on page four on Ethan's No Hentai images blog.

A stricter rule would be wise if images like these keep going under the radar.

Destinyheroknighton Sept. 2, 2011 at 9:07 p.m.

@takashichea:

You know I wasn't online when you reply to me both times LOL!

I got so confuse, when I came back :)

Yet, you should team up together on a franchise since you guys are close together

I'll think about it

EganTheVile1on Sept. 2, 2011 at 9:45 p.m.
Thanks for the nod on the Cobra Commander page, and great work everyone, special congrats to AnnaBanana for cracking the top 5
takashichea moderator on Sept. 2, 2011 at 10:20 p.m.

I did not noticed earlier, but give a round of applause to the staff and the engineers who have worked hard on making this site awesome. A new feature was added due to the request of wiki editors. The feature is about searching one's galleries by clicking on the galleries that you make. It keeps everything organized. No more going through tons of images in your own user gallery to find the one you need.

This is so cool!
This is so cool!
MrXDon Sept. 2, 2011 at 10:41 p.m.
I'm surprise that I made spotlight on three wiki page that I did, thanks and thanks everyone who was working hard to add more to the database.

Nah, even with the work I just did, I'm not planing to do anything on it. Beside, the work on Manyuu Hikenchou I just did was a wiki task that I done a while ago.
