"Welcome to AnimeShinbun"

Honestly, I'd prefer if the regular users broke the tie, since some of the ties are with the dark horse nominations that I added to the mix. So I'm not exactly the most objective here... ^^;;

On the topic of mobile friendliness...I'm glad to say that's something they're working on with the new backend. I have no idea when that will launch this point, but it'll be rather an improvement when it does go in. #1.1

I specifically gave the closing date for this one as 11:59pm Feb 1st, rather than 11:59pm Jan 31st as normal, so you actually barely scraped in there. ;)

The list of winners, along with the new contests, will go up tomorrow. #19.1

*facepalm* You're entirely right. I presume that particular short-listing came from the English cinematic dub, which only came out in 2014. Nevertheless, I think I'll change that one. #11.1

You'll see I didn't just pick out the most popular stuff from nominations. ;) Several of those on our short-lists weren't even nominated by the users at all!

But yes, nominations are closed now, so just put in your vote at this stage. #3.1.2

Yes, films in a series would count. All that matters there is that it was released in 2014. #3.1

There were fewer entrants than last year, yes. Given the circumstances, I suspect we either started later than people were hoping for, or the new format with all the questions at once wasn't as attention getting as the previous formats with the questions drip fed. #2.1.2

The original closing date was the 24th, but that was extended to the 31st to match the creative contest, and be sure that people had enough time to enter. #3.1.1

Less than a week to go until the contest closes. Be sure to get your entries in quick! Don't worry if you don't know the answers to them all, just submit the answers that you do know and come back to the others later, to make sure you've got your runs on the board. #3

Less than a week to go until this contest closes. Be sure to get your entries in quick! Remember, you score points separately for each challenge you do. We don't expect most (if any!) people to complete every single one, and completing just a few would more than likely put you in the running for a prize! #2

Only about 3.5 of the questions are list collecting this year (9, 11 and 12, with 3 being the half. You might argue 5 is "list collecting" too, but since it's a lot more specific I wouldn't have put it in that category). I include these types of questions mainly because
a) they're actually *easier* to find the answers for with some smart Google searches
and b) to make sure there's at least one question that even someone who's watched absolutly eve... #2.1

As per the instructions...
"For all of the questions this year, we're specifically asking about 2014 anime series which have streamed legally online for the first time this year. This includes 2nd seasons, sequels, and remakes, as well as all anime that has streamed on genre specific services like Crunchyroll, and general streaming services like Hulu, but excludes anime which start airing in late December after this post has gone live."

Crunchyroll, Hulu... #1.2

Trivia and Creative are up. We'll call for AS Awards nominations after Christmas, with a voting raffle to take place over January. #6

12 Days trivia questions will go up in about 12-14 hours from now. Mainly because it's a bit late here in Australia and I want to double-check the questions before putting them up, so we're not left with things like having to deal with there being multiple valid answers. Good luck everyone! #5

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
