New computer should arrive soon. Maybe I'll be able to get back to helping AV / GB then.

@Sonata: You may have to go to the Options menu, then Playback -> Output and change to options there. Some settings (the ones that have a single *) won't let you save screenshots. The one that says VMR9 might work, or if you donwloaded the codec pac the Haali one. Restart the player and try again. (I just tried it and it worked...)

Off-Topic » What's Going Through you Mind Right Now?

@Sonata: The player I like the most is Media Player Classic (now with "Home Cinema" added at the end). It looks like the old Windows player, but it is different internally. You can take screenshots with it. It is free, too. (I also use VLC from time to time, but don't like it as much). Or, you can download this codec pack, and it has both MPC and ZoomPlayer included. Has worked fine for me (although it was last updated quite a while ago, so the MPC it has may be old... not sure about that.)

Mods will soon be able to delete pages.... took a long time to implement, but it is almost here.

I'm still having computer trouble, so to speak, so these days I've been unable to do much. At least I've watched some anime (Kannagi, Aria, K-ON!, shows that are starting, etc.).

Bug Reporting » still waiting for it to be fixed!!!! add image butten

@lordhaseo: Somewhere on the flash page you will see something like this:







that is the Flash version.

However, more importantly: have you cleared the cache? Tried with other browsers? What have you done? This is something that is probably a problem on your end, not a problem Ethan can fix, so you have to try these things.

Delete/Combine Pages » Report plagiarism here

The Leda page is what I call a "skeleton page" (a page that exists, but no one has points). Previous to your 1 point edit, the article was there already but no one had any points in it. So, I guess, the article was entered directly into the database, bypassing the point system altogether. (No regular user did that). I could swear Gia said that they used a certain source for pre-populating the database (with permission). I don't remember what it was... (I hope it isn't my imagination... ^_^;)

@lordhaseo: I don't see why it wouldn't work...

What browser are you using? What version? (Help -> About). What version of Flash do you have installed? Go to this page and it will tell you.

Did you try clearing your browser's cache? If you're using Firefox 3.5:
  1. Go to the Tools menu.
  2. Select Clear Recent History.
  3. Click on the arrow pointing down and make sure only the one that says Cache has a checkmark on it.
  4. On the Time range to clear drop-down menu select Everything.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Restart your browser.
(I think it was called Clear Privacy data in previous versions, or something like that, in the Tools menu.) If you have some other browser, go to this page instead.

You could also try Ctrl + F5 first, and see if that does something.

Try using another browser temporarily, such as Google Chrome or Safari. Does the Add Images button work in those?

Bug Reporting » Unable to add comments to certain images

@ethan: Thanks. ^_^

The "image reel" is empty now... will it not be like it was before and show the images that where uploaded close to that one to the site? It looks a bit weird with that big, empty, square at the top. (Maybe it is better this way, since you never know if the images that would show up near that one are totally NSFW (like a screenshot from a hentai anime) or something...)

Editing & Tools » How the Heck is Ben 10 an anime?

@Obsidian609: It isn't considered an anime, in the usual anime = animation from Japan meaning. The fact that it has a page here doesn't change that or imply that it is, either. (Well, it says it is an anime encyclopedia, but if you know that not every page is anime, then it doesn't....) Think of it as an exception that Gia allowed. (And one should check with her first before creating any such pages...)

It is animation, after all, and it is Gia's decision to make. (In Japan anime refers to anything that is animated... even if the term is used in another way elsewhere.)

Off-Topic » how do I create a list?

@CrystalChaos: I'll use Sheryl as the example. If you go to her page, you will see an Add To a List button on the top right.

Click on that and a window will pop up with several options.

For actually creating a new list select the green ? Custom List button. You'll enter a name / description and hit Submit and you have your new list which you can see under your lists link.

The next time you go to another page and select the Add To a List button you will see that list, well, listed, and you can choose it to add more items to it (or choose ? Custom List again for another list).

Delete/Combine Pages » Delete image

@CrystalChaos: You can delete your own images (you didn't post any of them in the wiki; image deletions in the wiki require moderation before 5000 points, or so the rules say). Go to your images, and click on the Edit button on the top right. Then, drag the images you want to delete to the Trashcan icon and click on Save.

Off-Topic » What's Going Through you Mind Right Now?

@Sonata: Yeah, me too. ^_^ On the positive side, the laptop I'm using right now is much less "powerful" than mine, but now I realize how screwed up it was: everything feels faster. Also, this one has XP, not Vista. I don't hate Vista, however, but now I'll be looking for things in the wrong place for a while. If I can't recover my programs I'll just take the opportunity to make them better than they where. (Problem is, I'm too lazy / slow.)

I wonder if I can get a good computer with $900 (in the near future). I don't keep up with prices and stuff. ^_^;

Off-Topic » What's Going Through you Mind Right Now?

My computer finally died, after a long "illness". I'm using my mom's laptop for the moment. Most of my things (including images) are on external hard drives so nothing was lost. Well, except that the last backup of my programs I stupidly decided to place in one of the internal drives, and I don't have one of those HD->USB thingies. Crap. Now re-installing everything on this computer and checking what versions of my programs I actually have. *sigh*

Was going to do something API-related with AV only to find it hasn't been set up yet. ^_^; Now I'm torn between classifying / posting images or working on my programming "projects". (Or sleeping, but I've slept all day today...) Decisions, decisions...

If you mean the toolbar buttons a Ctrl + F5 should fix it. If not, clear your browser's cache. If you were talking about something else then don't mind me. ^_^

Bug Reporting » Invalid link in Manga Series pages

When you go to a manga series page, like this one, the text above has a link that goes nowhere:

« Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei is a manga volume often seen in the Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei franchise »

Where manga volume tries to link to http://www.animevice.com/anime_volume/.

I guess this is supposed to link to the manga series page... and say manga series, too. (Since Volume = Book, and this is a series page, not a book page.)

(Firefox 3.5, Vista)

General Discussion » Feature Requests

I have a few more:
  • Add the ability to go to the last message in a PM conversation - Either using the >> like in threads, or letting me click on the bit of the message that you can see under the PM Title, or both. (Or something better. ^_^)
  • Bring back the Edit Blurb button / link. Right now you have to Edit an article and cancel out of it to get to the blurb. Not very intuitive, in my opinion.
  • Bring back the Edit link while you are looking at an image (allowing for deletion and editing to which galleries the image is attached). If you are given a delete request for a particular image, just following the link to it and pressing Edit is faster / better than going to the All Images gallery and finding the image there (as there can be a ton of images).
