Kudos to you guys
« on: October 03, 2006, 08:13:25 PM »
I really like what you have done with your main site. Did Ritalin help you by any chance? It does look like sh had a hand on this.

Anyway, the site has a very good look.

If you don't mind, I would like to make a small sugestion, which could be easier said than done. Instead of just keeping a Haruhi as part of your image, how about having several cool looking characters (like Haruhi) rotate randomly whenever you refresh or change pages? After all, not everyone likes that anime and you could lose potential readers because of it.

Anyway... keep the good work!

Oh... you silly AA-crone.

Thank you. Kudos are nice.

Your suggestion has been discussed many times, but it is good to know other people think like most of us.

Scoot did the front. Therefore, Scoot = Awesome x Gold x Skillz^nth

Most of it was Scoot.  He's been awesome since he's come here.  As far as the image is concerned, we did originally intend to have an option where users could choose the theme, but that got put to the backburner.  As soon as we get some time, we'll do some more work on that.

Also, thanks for the kind words, it's always nice when a big-wig from another site compliments us. :)

You have your own team!? No wonder you did such a great job. Scoot is actually a production TEAM. :D Sweet.

Teams can't do anything without an all-star and a coach, so SK and Scoot rule.

Haha. Yeah, Scoot's been real good to us, and so have others in the past (Bravotwo for implementing the wordpress system, which has eased our way through the editting and updating process for over a year and given the site an organization and flexibility that few sites have; Seven, and others). I don't know what I would have done without our awesome HTML/PHP/graphics geniuses. Well, more's to come in the near future, look forward to the changes!

I think AA's getting scared... :)

Yeah, we talked about a rotating image, but I think the idea got put on the back burner because of feasibility (we talked about it a long time ago).  Thanks, soundchazer, for your kind words and support.  We do our best here and have great hopes for the future.

now now... let's not get carried away.

That being said, I'm not a territorial person. I'm first and foremost an anime fan and will kudos when they are deserved, and you are definitely on the right track.

It is a shame you haven't been able to get the forums a little more active though. To me that is the lifeblood of these type of sites.

SC:  In time.  Let's just say we have a few more aces up our sleeve yet (and a hell of a lot of work to do).

Are you going to lure Kain away from retirement?
Are you going to post pictures of Madoka in a bikini?
Are you planning on doing TIF a reviewer? (that would be awesome!)

I think TIF is gone from us forever. Or is he still lurking in AA in some form?

Yes he is... not in AA but the #aa irc channel. Plus he might be hiding under a different name, he has tried and succeeded for a while twice.

We would only want TIF if he could fill out the application to meet our standards, nee? And I doubt Kain is sane enough after handling AA for so long that he could even spell his name right on an application.

As for pictures of Madoka in a bikini, I would prefer pictures of Nenene.

I think, egotistically, one of our aces in the sleeve is my yearly (hint-flippin'-hint) reports on traveling in Japan. That and Dheu's music reviews. She is what we have that AA doesn't. A reviewer with a license to kill.

SC... kudos to you, for knowing a trivial 3 number difference.

Every message board needs a TIF who will say things that need to be said and always debate things intelligently.  He's actually registered on here IIRC but never posted much and hasn't posted anything in a long long time.  That said, having TIF as a reviewer would rule, but I doubt he'd want to do it.

How many sites have an anime reviewing bear?  That is the ace of spades right there. :)

TIF only shows his snarkiness on large(r) forums where the newbs are ripe and plum for the picking.  One day, if the Nihon Review is lucky, TIF will make his appearance here, and bless all of us with his refreshing wit and manly sassiness that is a rare find on the internet.

<.<

...

Site looks great guys.  Can't wait to see the improvements and new J-Drama section.

If I wasn't so lazy and didn't have such a decidely lackluster approach to being a humane and somewhat normal person online, I'd kill you all.

That being said, only we are badass enough to have a bear.

Again, only us. AA has old people and mothballs.

Someone should make TIF an altar or something. I mean he is as holy as the pope it seems.

I'd also like to say good job on the site (Not like I run a site or anything but I figure it matters to someone >.>)

 
 
As for TIF... well, that would be really cool if he was a reviewer for any site. Who knows, maybe you'll luck out? :)

I heard he learned his craft from Jesus himself.

I've got his AIM. Maybe I'll drag him away from his porn to get him in here.
