Screened & You!

Check out our sister site and join its community!

Hello everyone! This is a guide written by Acura Max, Takashichea, and FinalDasa to tell you guys and gals about Anime Vice’s sister site, Screened. Screened is home to a variety of TV shows and movies from around the world. It’s a small, tight knit community where we engage in fun activities similar to Anime Vice. If you enjoy those shows and watching TV shows in general, you should try doing some editing at Screened. In Screened, we have a name for our friends, Pups. Yes, it’s weird. It grew because Rorie liked petting puppies on the streets.

Screened & You!

Discussion Threads

If you have a favorite show that’s currently airing, you can visit or create a thread for that show. The hottest discussion threads for this fall are Legend of Korra, The Walking Dead, and Marvel’s Agents of Shield. Speaking of Korra, I know we have a lot of Avatar/Korra fans in Anime Vice. In addition, JackAnderson and MrMazz are reviewing each new episode every week!

Trailers

I hope you guys like zombies and elemental martial artists

Every season BigHeart117, Acura_Max and I post trailers for all the upcoming TV series, you can check out these trailers. Some of these might fit your preferences. The last big guide was Fall 2013 (Part 1 and 2). Meanwhile, FinalDasa posts movie trailers on the front news. In addition, he posts the Weekly Movie Poster Roundup similar to the Quick Picks that BigHeart711 and I used to do for anime and manga releases. For incoming movies and TV series, check out this page.

Active Review Community

Wiki Editing

The wiki style at Screened is very unique and easy to learn. Cool features I found at Screened were the quotes, references, and trivia sections. In Anime Vice, we do add trivia but as questions. In Screened, it works differently. We add to the wiki pages. Trivia and references are fun because you might find something cool and interesting. To keep this rolling, we love to invite new and old editors to expand this. Then, we have a blast! These are fun to add. Like Anime Vice, we have a wiki task queue. You can help out or suggest a theme for the community to revamp the wiki.

Very nice work on this! Also, I'm still up to my old tricks on there as always! XD

We're also making an AV promotion for Screened. So look out for that!

@Acura_Max: Wherever the PM is for that, hook me up!

I need to post more on Screened, I'll definitely stop by the discussion threads. Also, PUPPIES!

We worked on Gdoc first. It took a whole week to do this guide. Just PM me your Gmail address.

And it has no Battles forum! YAYYYYYY!

This site covers both movies and TV shows, right?

Sure does!

You know you can hide threads from the battles forum is they're bugging you, right? You just click the preferences link near the top of the forums page to change what's hidden and what isn't.

Learn something new about this site every day... The preference doesn't affect the recent site activity on main page though. Just another workaround to add to the list I suppose.

Dream moderator is online on Nov. 12, 2013 at 7:21 p.m.

@Daniel_Newton: That option only effects whenever I enter the Forums page. I'd still be able to see recent postings for Battles forum threads from the Vice home page.

@takashichea: I'll consider joining at some point. My anime fandom's begun to twinkle down a bit (enough where I'm beginning to bore of watching many recent titles), hence why I said my next Ani-Crap Review sweep would be my last.

@AURON570: @Dream:

That depends on your favorites. Your favorites are the ones featured on the front page, I believe. I need to do a test.

AURON570on Nov. 13, 2013 at 8:32 p.m.

@takashichea: I just did a minor test. >.> Yes marking forums as favorites makes it so that ONLY THOSE forums show up in the recent site activity box on main page, but this is inadequate because firstly many forums like General Discussion have several stickied posts which take up half or more of the recent activity feed. Secondly if someone posts an interesting thread on a specific anime page, it won't show up in recent activity unless the forum for that specific page is favorited, not that I'm likely to see that thread anyway if it's either drowned out by battle threads or stickied posts.

What I can conclude from this: Don't use the recent forum activity box on front page.

@AURON570:

I see. Then, it's a broken feature. For me, it shows me old threads from months ago. I always skipped the main page. My bookmarked page for Anime Vice is my profile page.

RealJpoeon Nov. 13, 2013 at 11:31 p.m.

I attend a local indie movie club so I may start doing some reviews & write-ups over there. I've known about Screened since I started using the whiskey sites but just never made the effort to check it out.
