Today we are instituting a new rule on Anime Vice, no hentai images allowed. As an experiment and in the interest of documenting the history of anime, we launched Anime Vice and allowed hentai titles in our database. Unfortunately we underestimated the sheer volume of graphic screenshots wiki editors would upload to the image galleries. For the small amount of hentai movies that are cataloged in our wiki, we have an overwhelming amount of unneeded, graphic images uploaded to them. The end result is, Google has listed Anime Vice as a porn site and dropped us from their search results. That's a huge slap to the 99% of editors who have been working hard all year on legit anime.
Anime Vice has been poked fun at by the other Whiskey Media sites exactly because it has allowed these images. But no more! The mods have already been involved in this decision and will help us remove many of these images. One mod in particular has alot of deleting to do :)
Hopefully we can carry out the plan of removing unneeded images over the next week or two. Together with this new rule and our ongoing blitz to reformat our wiki articles (see Wiki Task Queue) Anime Vice has a shot at being the best wiki of Whiskey Media!
So if you've uploaded some dirty images please start deleting them!
The Mods and Staff thank you.
[UPDATE] PS: Now help us edit and reformat wiki articles. Task Queue Theme: Cyborg Villains
Mods/Staff have removed as many hentai images as we could find on the site. The only images that are allowed to stay are official published boxart for anime/maga though if there is 'safe for work' version we'd rather it be used then a NSFW image -- and these images are only allowed on the actual anime/manga wiki page.
Also, for any anime/manga and it's characters that has the "Adult" theme attached to it, we now have a NOINDEX in the source code, which tells search engines not to add that page to their search results. This will also help keep dirty images out of their search index.
Hope all of these changes will make it so that Google and perhaps schools will nolonger penalize Anime Vice as a porn site.
Over the last 5 days visits to AV have increased by 50% and all most all these new visits are coming from Google searches. This means, I hope, that google has added us back into their normal search results and no longer classifies us as an unsafe search site.
Keep up the good work making great wiki pages, great anime blogs / user articles and keeping this place safe for work.
