Bug Reporting » Forum Search Broken

1. What browser are you using? ( Firefox 3, Internet Explorer 6, etc. etc.)

Google Chrome

2. What Operating System are you using? ( Mac, Linux, Windows, etc, etc)

Windows 7

3. What is the exact link to the page you are having a problem with?

Mainly the forums search bar

4. Details, details, details. Explain it in detail.

Any time I have attempted to use the search bar in the forums, I have received the same Error 500 message continuously. I know that it is not an issue with the browser since I have used IE 8 as well as Chrome and the same error message comes up. I know Anime Vice is the red headed child of Whiskey Media but could someone look into what the issue is here. Probably not on the list of high priority things to fix but its still something that is a pain.

Bug Reporting » Episode Numbers, Post Counts, and Wiki Points Are Not Appearing

Honestly, taka, I have the same issue from time to time with Chrome. In that I'll work on something heavily and then only a fraction of the editting points go into my account. It's been persistent where at times, it'll work fine and other times it will collapse. I find it best to edit in chunks to resolve it at times.

Bug Reporting » Issue with Wiki Tools

@Fire Star: Sorry to respond to this nearly two months later, but to answer your question no. Mainly due to the fact I switched from IE to Chrome (not to mention IE 9 is total rubbish)

Conventions » What cons are you going to (or went to) in 2011?

@sickVisionz: I actually do staff work at AWA so you'll see me there...if you can find me. Then again, Dealers Room staff is always understaffed so I'll be there all con.

Off-Topic » Would you vote for a female president?

I wouldn't be swayed by the fact she is a woman. I would be swayed by what her foreign policy is and her plans to fix the economy. Same with Barack Obama. I don't want to sound racist, but I have the feeling that those who turned eighteen for the 2008 presidential election voted for Obama primarily due to the fact that he could turn out to be the first African American president.  
 
As well as you have to consider who is their running mate. One reason I didn't vote for McCain was because of Sarah Palin. So there are a plethora of factors to consider when casting a vote other than the fact that the candidate in question has an extra X chromosome.

General Discussion » What do you think of AV's new makeover?

I think it looks visually pleasing but I have to say something that has been said countless time on this site, where are our new quests? (Don't answer this. Its rhetorical and I know why but I assumed that with a new design we would have gotten one new quest set)

I'm annoyed at the fact I promised myself I wouldn't accidentally make a duplicate page.

Editing & Tools » Wiki Task Queue Theme Suggestions

Hmmm, let's see here.  
 
  • Monster. I know you have posted some stuff for Monster already but I figure a more expansive look would be good, additional characters to be made, episodes to be editted, etc. 
  • Eureka Seven. Again, a lot of characters posted and nothing for their wiki pages. 
  • Love Hina. I figure it's best to just throw some other titles out.
  • eX-Driver. Something I tried to start but it kinda fell through the cracks. 
How do those sound? I know sickVisionz did a ton last year where he just put up Wiki Tasks for episodes of Naruto. Maybe something similar can be done for a different Shonen anime.

Quests » Glitch in the Photoshop Quest

I know not much can be done since one of the mods whose name escaped me refers to AnimeVice as the red haired brother you don't want to admit you have (paraphrasing here) but I think I came across a glitch in the Photoshop quest that I would like someone to take a look at. Now, the Filling in the Blanks quest says that a total of 50 images must be uploaded, but the little counter on the right lists it as out of 20. So the question is which is it and is there something that can be done to fix said glitch?

Quests » Help out the person above you (If he/she needs help) w/ Quests

@UnHoLy_CruSadE 
You're right about it being replying to something. Just you're off on the what. Think about what stories could apply to. To give a hint, look at the purple bar at the top of the screen. One of those tabs can help.

Off-Topic » How Cynical are we?

There is a vast difference between appropriate cynicism (like with certain movies that are coming out that an older audience can see will be bad a mile away) and being a general prick overall thinking that everything will be horrible no matter what.

You're a moderator...that's pretty wicked.

General Discussion » Reviewers Guild

@SamFury That makes sense and sounds good. However, I am not one to take on requests for reviews. They should come naturally for any series that hasn't had a proper review on it yet. That and it's easier and less time consuming to review something you already know as opposed to being asked to review something that is completely alien to you.

General Discussion » Reviewers Guild

How exactly would this all work? Just after a review is posted, the others comment on its strengths and such?

General Discussion » Vicer Of The Month: June Nominations

@fire_star: Thanks. I would like to nominate obscurefan to the Vicer of the Month batch for June. He loves hanging out on this site and making new pages and new additions to pages that have nothing on it. He also takes each month to make them something special like how this month is Bakuman month and another month was Soul Eater month. He is committed to making the site a whole lot better and I think he deserves the award for his efforts and work.

Is it too late to nominate someone?

Bug Reporting » New Editor Bugs in Here

I'll be honest. I had the same problems. But when I switched browsers from Internet Explorer to Chrome, a lot of these problems went away.

Quests » Test Quest - Don't Publish


@MohsinMan99 I don't think so for two reasons. 1) The quest has been out for a week and no one has posted a thread on it unlike the others ones and B) With a quest that says 'Don't Publish' some people may assume that it was some sort of test that the moderators were trying to do but someone accidentally hit the publish button. I remember ethan did something similar where he made a 'test' blog that was blank so maybe in hindsight this is some sort of error on behalf on the WhiskeyMedia staff.

 

If not, the only thing I can't think of that should never trigger is to report a user for violating the site's rules and even then I don't want to flag or report someone on the off chance I'm wrong.

Quests » Test Quest - Don't Publish


Well I assume it's a legit quest but my mind is trying to figure out what exactly shouldn't trigger.
