Community Spotlight: 9/23/11

Think you missed anything this week on Anime Vice? Take a look at this week's community spotlight to find out!

Welcome back Anime Vice, it's the week's conclusion, and that means it's time for our Community Spotlight. The users are working hard in the wiki database and the blogs making great content. I want to showcase much of the best of it and inspire others to join in. Check out what these users have made in the week, visit the page, and leave an encouraging comment when possible.

We had a great news week for the front page. Tom had some new video reviews, and he's ready to start a new Watch & Learnsegment, and he needs your suggestion on what series should be next. Be sure to visit his article HERE and leave a suggestion. I wrote an editorial talking about what anime series could be a MMORPG. There are two new movies coming out called Legend of the Millenium Dragon and Pokemon Zoroark, Sotyfan16 wrote an article for the series Demon Kind Daimo, and some of the best news of the week is that BLEACH is going to be having it's time skip arc coming later next month. That's two big time skip episodes in a single month. I hope you're looking forward to these events.

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!!

Congrats to everyone who was featured in this week's AV Community Spotlight for their hard work and dedication in both the Wiki and forums. You are helping AnimeVice become better each and every time you contribute to this wonderful site.

Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamotoon Sept. 23, 2011 at 9 p.m.

So I go unnoticed once more...

@ShadowKnight508: And no, I don't feel like sending a PM- I want someone else to notice for me. I don't want to glorify myself by sending in my own submission to some weenie who's probably biased as hell.

Sarumarineon Sept. 23, 2011 at 10:01 p.m.

Yeah! You go Community Spotlight! And all those who made it happen. Nice work.

Turambaron Sept. 23, 2011 at 11:11 p.m.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: I'll be more than glad to hear your justification in why you believe FoxxFireArt is a weenie who's biased as hell.

Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamotoon Sept. 23, 2011 at 11:15 p.m.

@Turambar: Along with any number of people who just blindly agree with mods on here. Besides- FFA's a mod himself who's advertising a bunch of wiki edits he and ShadowKnight508 did. Ain't THAT just a bit biased to you?

Turambaron Sept. 23, 2011 at 11:20 p.m.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: Out of all the featured wiki edits this week, one is by FFA and one is by Shadowknight. Of all the featured blogs, one is by Shadowknight and none are by FFA. You will excuse me if I find that flimsy evidence for a declaration of bias.

Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamotoon Sept. 23, 2011 at 11:22 p.m.

@Turambar: And your own findings are flimsy in and of themselves, since you did not look deep enough into them to see my point.

@ShadowKnight508: Still as shameless as ever with the wiki edits... though I like it, to say the least.

Turambaron Sept. 23, 2011 at 11:24 p.m.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: Oh? Then by all means, expand upon your point.

Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamotoon Sept. 23, 2011 at 11:25 p.m.

@Turambar: I ask that you look further, since I have expanded enough for you to explore.

EDIT: Besides, the mods in question are hardly ever on long enough to post anything in the forums themselves, so why are they trying to glorify themselves via wiki edits for viewers that most of the regular users on this site aren't even going to look at?

Turambaron Sept. 23, 2011 at 11:30 p.m.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: As the person that extends the accusation, I believe most will agree that the burden of evidence falls on your shoulders, not those of an observer that is intrigued by said accusation.

Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamotoon Sept. 23, 2011 at 11:32 p.m.

@Turambar: But as said observer, you HAVE seen that the mods in question have had their own hand in that editing on more than half of the articles in one way or another... is that not true?

Turambaron Sept. 23, 2011 at 11:47 p.m.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: Would you not agree that it would be rather odd if the Mods of a site did not have major contributions to the wiki portion of a site? Further, I have to mention this again: of the 9 wikis featured this week, 3 have either FFA or Shadowknight as the top contributor to the page. And of course, there is also the thus far unexpanded accusation that self-featuring is somehow indicative of a bias.

Guys, we should get along. This spotlight page is for giving recognitions and thanks to all users. It's supposed to tie us together, so we can have fun.

Ignore the bottom captions. Just focus on the main captions. Thanks.

sotyfan16on Sept. 24, 2011 at 3:26 a.m.

Good job to everyone. It takes time an effort to get things done and done right/detailed. All of your tasks help make Anime Vice a great place of anime/manga wiki and community participation.

Dekkenon Sept. 24, 2011 at 8:06 a.m.

@takashichea: Thanks for mention me, also congrats everyone for their work.

Little_Socrateson Sept. 24, 2011 at 10:38 a.m.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: You know I got on this list with my first blog ever totally forgetting there WAS a Community Spotlight, right?

Just chill out, sometimes you're in and sometimes you're not. If you want to be more often than you are, send the PMs. As for this:

This is the equivalent of being the princess trapped in a castle waiting for the hero to come and save her. You want to get noticed? Be active.

Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamotoon Sept. 24, 2011 at 10:46 a.m.

@Little_Socrates: I'm more active on the forums than ShadowKnight508 and FoxxFireArt combined... and more active than you. So don't give me that BS.

takashichea moderator is online on Sept. 24, 2011 at 11:09 a.m.

That was nerdy when I posted that image.

@Dekken:

No problem! :)

It's to get out the word out and get more people to comment.

Come on, my team. Show some love!
