"Welcome to AnimeShinbun"


I'm actually really surprised this is getting an adaptation. After the legal issues that plagued the series right at the start, I was afraid that many Japanese TV stations wouldn't want to touch it with a 10 foot pole. #1

Apologies for the delay everyone. Contest winners are up and will be contacted shortly. #3

The only one that's not immediately obvious is based on having approved stories from a website that you're staff for. All others, you should notice if you're visiting every day (since any restriction comes with a 24 hour lock-out at minimum). #1.1

My best estimate based on what I've seen of the test site would be before the end of the year. But don't quote me on that. #1.1

Hear hear. Far too many series are guilty of this. Was very frustrating when I saw the new Sailor Moon anime doing it. So much for being able to introduce people to the franchise with that anime without them figuring out everything from before they even saw the full team get together. #2

A good question. For now, I'm inclined to put them under the Manga channel.

When the revamp happens later this year, we'll be able to have more dynamic channels rather than the hardcoded ones currently, so we'll be sure to add one for those. #1.1

And another prolific website has just been caught doing the same thing.... *sigh* #3.3

That particular section you've quoted there was me quoting from the guidelines page. That page itself can't be edited, but you can consider everything I've said in this blog post to supersede that in any case. I'll edit the blog post later this evening for clarity. #5

Contacted, yes. Warned? Well, I did warn people in that blog a couple of months back, and this blog had been put up only a few days previously, so I'd say everyone had already been sufficiently warned to not do it. The temporary (1 month) restrictions serve as a warning to not do it again. #3.1.2

A good point there SynGamer. Since a portion of heat is story pageviews by unique visitors, there is the potential for it to grow rapidly if posted on social networks. It shouldn't be causing this month growth though. We might have to look into how those algorithms are weighted... #1.4.4

So, I just had someone send me a ticket about their stories not appearing on the front page of AnimeShinbun. On investigating....well well well, look at what we have here. A group of 3 people all only submitting material from the same site, who are *ALWAYS* in the list of people who've approved the story, and whose approvals are usually within an hour at most of the story having been submitted. Their approvals alone couldn't completely push a story through, but even so, that's sti... #3

@Koga @CaptainYesterday
Please report individual articles to us when you see that happen. We can backtrack and look at that sort of thing to check when it's occurred, but it's not something we'd actually see unless we're explicitly looking for it. #1.4.2

Normally it won't get auto-marked as spam unless it's been marked as spam several times. In the case that someone with sufficient power marks it as spam though, it'll get auto-labelled that way. I've reset your comment to baseline, since it's clearly not spam from how we've been approaching it. #1.2.2

I'll add a bit to the blog post about this later, but we actually *explicitly allowed and encouraged* this a while back (years back, actually). Doing that was intended to
a) Give an incentive to websites to post their own content (important for those websites which might not get submissions otherwise, despite having relevant content)
b) To help promote discussions in the comments here (the first comment is always the hardest)

Now having said was... #1.2

Yeah, it's hitting all the Newsboiler sites. I assume the techs are already working on it... #8.1.2

...well, so much for that. It's typed up, but it's not going through because of that same runtime error all of you are getting with your news submissions. And since Blogs have to have an image, unlike news articles, I can't post it. Gah. It'll go up as soon as this is fixed. #8.1

A bit delayed sorry, but the list of winners is up. And that promised blog post will go up within the next few hours. #8

That promised blog post is coming a bit late. But it is still coming. ^^; #7

Was there anyone in DBZ who actually won a fight after checking someone with a scouter? Maybe made them flee, but actually beat outright? #9

Prizes are up.

For the first time in a long time now, we've actually had a couple of back to back winners. Marow barely got in before the end of the month there with that well written blog to snatch it away from D3acon (who was coming in pretty late as it was). Meanwhile, Alixithymia got very lucky with how the dice fell for the random contributor draw. #3
