General Discussion » Do you want brand-new episode reviews on the front page? [READ BEFORE VOTING]

@Sparklykiss: I know what you mean, but hey, it would only be right to review things fairly. You don't see Comic Vine ignoring second issues just in case the story takes a while to pick up. Maybe it will take a while to get really good, the reviews will reflect that. Besides, a terrible review after a good first episode would be great! Imagine the drama! "OH MY GOD WHAT HAPPENED THIS ANIME WAS SO GOOD LAST WEEK NOOOOO!"

And even if we cover lots, CV covers plenty of comics each week, and they seem to do just fine. We should have it even better over here since anime episodes come out on different days. We won't have like 15 reviews up in one go.

Crunchyroll is great! Look it up and check it out. There are free and subscriber memberships. Most of the content is free but members gets a few series exclusively like Fairy Tail, and can watch in HD and stuff. The subscription fee is reasonable and it's neveer a bad thing to support the industry.

@ZombiePie: Thanks for fucking up my poll Zombie! It was going so well, too! ...ass.

General Discussion » Do you want brand-new episode reviews on the front page? [READ BEFORE VOTING]

I should point out that this is specifically for new anime episodes and the reviews should be of a certain standard. By that I mean they're written well and stick to a set style. I went with something similar to the Comic Vine reviews in the example I posted. This isn't just a case of posting user reviews on the front page.

@ShadowKnight508: Thanks. Yeah, it would definitely let users know about current anime. I only noticed Squid Girl 2 had started because I follow Crunchyroll on twitter.

@Sparklykiss: Opinion noted! Though I think it would probably be fine to post reviews for each episode in a series. There are only ever a certain amount of shows airing at the same time and we wouldn't cover them all anyway. But we'll see I guess!

@finaldasa: Indeed! As long as articles and reviews are by trusted users we shouldn't have anything bad posted on the front page.

@DocHaus: Awesome, I'd definitely recommend you for this.

General Discussion » Do you want brand-new episode reviews on the front page? [READ BEFORE VOTING]

Hey guys, as I'm sure some of you have noticed, I haven't posted a Weekly Fairy Tail article on the site in quite a long time. I've been thinking about changing the format a bit, which gave me an idea...

The Whiskey Media sites that cover games, movies and comic books all post reviews up on the front page. Comic Vine in-particular posts reviews of new comic book issues every week. Anime Vice, while it does have video reviews by Tom, doesn't review brand new episodes of anime in the same way that Comic Vine does for new comic book issues. But what if it did?

The problem with my weekly Fairy Tail articles was that they were less like reviews and more like glorified episode summaries. That's not what I was initially going for. I was also spending way too much time on them, mostly because I was taking so many screen captures.

So, here's the idea

Would you guys like to see 1 to 5 star episode reviews posted every week? Here's my review of Squid Girl season 2 episode #1 as an example. Would they be better spoiler-free like Comic Vine reviews or not spoiler-free?

I asked Ethan about this but he hasn't got back to me. He might be unsure about the idea, and it's important what you guys think, would you guys like to see reviews like this on the front page? Most likely written by me and other mods/top users.

For those wondering, I was thinking of covering Fairy Tail, Squid Girl season 2, Bleach (at least until the filler ends) and maybe a few more.

What do you think guys?

Delete/Combine Pages » Delete the cleavage page

Don't know who deleted it, but there's hardly a need for a cleavage page on the site, especially since we already have a big boobs page.

Locking this thread.

RPG » That thing (A Wiki)

@FoxxFireArt: You're right, we don't need a figure section on the site, but I think it would be cool. More details could be added for each figure, such as what company produces it, how much it retails for, what it's made from, dimensions, weight, related character and item pages, etc. Something similar to this. The way figures are handled on the site right now, we just have images in character page galleries. Doesn't offer much info really.

RPG » That thing (A Wiki)

@ethan: I think this would be pretty cool, but I'd recommend RPG character pages being omitted from search results by default. We wouldn't want people digging through hundreds of RPG characters when they're looking for legit anime characters in the database.

On a side note, if it's not that hard for engineers to add new page types to the database I'd love to see music pages and figure pages added. I'd fill the hell out of those, I know a few other users who would like that too.

General Discussion » Pass The Whiskey Episode 3: Don’t Like ZombiePie? Don’t Eat!

@FoxxFireArt: No of course not, it's just you've been writing articles for a good while now. I'm new at this so I guess Sparkly wanted to let people know about it.

I think it might be how many pages he's contributed to rather than how many he's added to the database. I can't see a way to find that out.

ZombiePie is the sexual deviant we all love to hate.

Bug Reporting » Images getting deleted

This is clearly a problem on the site/server end, clearing cookies and history won't fix anything. I've been having a bunch of image problems today to the extent that I uploaded a set of images one by one (re-uploading every time I had an error) until I had them all uploaded, only to find a bunch of them slowly vanished while I was writing up an article using the images. On top of that, I couldn't add them to the episode page. It said to refresh the page to see changes and they hadn't been added at all.

@jjweatherman: @slowbird: Haha I'm kidding. By the way, love the name of this episode guys, ha.

Sorry I was quiet for the majority of the podcast. It was mostly because of how tired I was, if I ever get to be on again I promise I'll get my shit together.

Someone needs to photoshop a DK tie onto a Dr. Pepper bottle. I need to see that.

Damn it, my voice is completely jacked up in the first ten minutes. Should have redone that part after all. Sorry guys!

I was just saying how I'd started writing articles for Anime Vice and you guys should tell me what kinds of stuff you want me to write about. I'll write up a blog/thread on that stuff properly at some point.

"You can't put hard drives in a computer, you're a gurrrl!" - most offensive thing said on the podcast.

This. I'm on ep 211 and it's pretty good right now. Gonna wait a while and let the eps pile up again though.

But... you have one hundred and nineteen episodes to catch up on! That's crazy talk! Stop living in the past and get up to date!

@hitsusatsu11: It's actually a really good filler arc, you might be missing out on something you'd enjoy if you don't try a few episodes.

@sickVisionz: As gloriously sarcastic as that post was, I think you replied to the wrong guy...
