    Hi everyone, As mentioned in my previous update, my life circumstances have changed significantly to a 4 day on and 2 day off rotating roster of very unsociable hours including overnights due to having to provide 24/7 support for the company I work for. With my current commitments this unfortunately leaves me with very little time to dedicate to AF and give it the attention it really deserves. My free time towards AF is split towards community management and managing the technical side (keeping the platform up to date and ensuring up-time from the web server side of things). I am therefore looking to step down from the community management side and hand the reins over to the right person. This will allow me to solely focus on managing the technical side of AF. We have the following staff vacancies available: 1x Community Manager 4x Moderator Positions (2x US, 1x Europe, 1x Asia/Oceanic) 1x Anime Page Curator Detailed role descriptions and applications can be made using this link below: https://animeforums.net/application/ If there is insufficient interest then I will unfortunately have to look at placing AF on hiatus due to lack of time and capacity from my end, so if you know anyone that is interested please do spread the word. Thank you for your support.

    I appreciate the thought @Muco I was kind of confident that I could do it too, but I have things that might take quite a bit of time, especially due to life changes here. If nobody is interested in taking over for Optic, I can probably give it a shot.

    Forum Rules and Guidelines are up to reflect the new platform. Nothing has really changed compared to the old ones other than advertising and clarification on our Account Deletion policy.

    Good morning all, So the past month I've probably (definitely) pulled back a bit from my usual posting...and the reason is that I rescued a tiny 11 day old kitten in my backyard. Now, I waited and gave the mother cat plenty of chances to come get her first (13 hours from the time I first heard her screaming) and her mother even came to our backporch to eat and still left her behind. Now that we know she had had a litter of 7 (Yes. Insane.) it is a bit more understandable why she left the little one behind. So, here I am, every two to three hours up feeding and helping this kitten use the bathroom, getting him rehydrated and worrying over every little aspect of kittenhood...yes...I admit...I felt comatose most days. I haven't done much of anything other than crave sleep and focus on cooking when I can. I am shocked that this kitten is two to three times smaller than his/her siblings but according to our vet, that is normal for the runt. The important thing is that she is SO much healthier than when I first rescued her and she has finally (at weeks 3-4 old) started putting on weight (yes, she is the size of a 2 week old kitten, but developmentally she is at the right stage!). Anyways, the vet has been flip-flopping on the gender so now we are at 90% certainty of the little one being a girl. While my husband has already picked out a boy's name, I have been extremely undecided on a girl's name. A little background on the kitten. She is a black kitten. Her eyes might still change color so we aren't going to state those. She is super tiny but strong (was strong from 11 days old crawling blindly through the tall grass in our backyard looking desperately for her mom). She might be bicolor (as in black and a near black gray. I think it'll blend into one color as she ages). The names I had come up with for her were Saratoga (for her purr), Galatea (for my love of astronomy - it ironically means "she who is milky-white" lol), and Aurora but I'm not really set on anything. I keep hoping a name will grab me (Saratoga had initially when her purr sounded like a horse running down a track). Anyways, does anyone here have any suggestions? I won't guarantee that your suggestions will be used, but I'm hoping something else will grab me or reassure me that I might already have the right name. By the way, no Japanese names (one of my former coworkers suggested some Japanese names and he blew her up on Facebook lol - sounds bad but the whole conversation between the two of them was actually quite comical).

    This thread is about any anime you grew up watching when you were younger. Which series were popular when you were a kid/teen? Which series do you honestly miss watching on TV? I miss watching Zatchbell and the original Zoids series. Then there is the original Digimon and Pokemon (back when there was only 150). A few other series would be Ghost In The Shell (although I do have all of the SAC series). I'm sure there are others I miss but I can't remember them off the top of my head. As you can probably guess by now I grew up in the early 90's back when you could only trade Pokemon with the person sitting next to you. I used to have 650 Pokemon cards (yeah I actually sat down and counted them, lol) but I gave them all to my nephew last year. Also remember having to get my anime fix by buying VHS after VHS after VHS of Pokemon and DBZ (now I can't believe that VHS tapes only had like four episodes per tape). I still have some of them too in a box somewhere in my house, lol.

    Ah really appreciate it. Your a life saver. My girlfriend has been asking me to find where that came from for a while but apparently your searching capabilities exceed my own :). Another quick question. Is there a way to edit your own post? I didn't see one when I noticed that it didn't support the html embed. Thanks again.

    Quick Links Awesome List Naughty List Current Challenges ☆☆☆☆☆ Notice: If you do not read the rules, and post something that breaks one of my rules, you will automatically lose a star. Depending on my mood, I may let you off the hook, just know that I rarely tell people that they dun goof'd. I'll tell you now, being polite and fun usually gets you into my good books General Rules: These rules technically apply to every mode! So what do you do? YOU COME TO ME, KNEEL IF YOU SO DESIRE, AND THEN, YOU ASK ME SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF: "OI! GIMME SUMTHIN' GUD!" And give you something "gud" I shall. Ah but I'd appreciate it if you give me a link to your anime list! If you don't have one, so be it, but just saying, it'll speed up the process of me finding you an anime if I know what you've seen before ^.^ Remember though ol' chaps, this is MY say. You won't have any say in what kind of anime you get, you ask me for something, you get what you get! Simple as that Oh, but I'm not entirely cruel, I'll give you every right to request the following: Sub or dub (UNLESS I SAY TO WATCH ONE SPECIFICALLY, this doesn't happen often.) The length of the anime (I understand some people have less time than others, so if you only have time for 12 episodes, I gotchu.) For the three main modes (Regular, Hardcore, and Insane) you will gain stars by completing the anime that I give you! However you will LOSE stars by dropping the anime before you're allowed to! What's the fun part? Well I'm sure you saw me mention gaining/losing stars! WHEN you acquire at LEAST one star your name will be placed on the awesome list, with one star! The same applies to the naughty list, however that's for people with negative points. If your name is on that list, you will have at least one demerit point, and a large heap of shame. How do you get rid of demerit points? Get stars! How do you lose stars? Get demerit points. (Don't do that) Keep in mind, if you straight-up refuse to watch an anime (for whatever dumb reason) the penalty for "dropping" a show will be doubled. Spooky. Oh, and if you don't update me on whether you're still working away at your challenge within one month of receiving it or previously updating me on your progress, I will consider it a failure, and you will receive appropriate demerit points. To conserve on space: STAAAAR COLOOOOOURS! Soooo what're those? I used generic RPG rarity scale. Almost. 1 star = 1 black star ☆ 5 black stars = 1 green star ☆ 5 green stars = 1 blue star ☆ 5 blue stars = 1 purple star ☆ 5 purple stars = 1 orange star ☆ 5 orange stars = dayum son. So aim to score high! Ah yes, all those nice stars up there? Mind you, the same colour scheme applies to demerit points ('-' ) I will reward stars via chunks of episodes. What do I mean? 1-15 episodes is one chunk. 16-30 is the next chunk. 31-45 is the third chunk, and so on. The actual star values given are explained under each one's actual... explanation ;D I suppose I'll also allow you to BRIEFLY chat about the show you're watching if you have something you'd like to say. Just be sure to put spoilers in spoiler tags. ☆☆☆☆☆ Regular Mode! This is the classic mode! So HOW does THIS mode work? When I give you a recommendation, you watch it! If you complete it you will get your prize! HOWEVER If you drop the anime before COMPLETING episode 5... you will LOSE stars equivalent to however many you would have gained if you had completed it! Of course now you may be thinking "Ay, but what about that moral grey area between after episode 5 and before completion!?" Well meh, nothing happens if you drop it there, if you didn't like it by episode 5, that's fair So lets look at the numbers for a moment shall we? Every 1 to 15 episodes will reward you with 1 star. Every 16 to 30 episodes will reward you with 2 stars! This pattern continues onwards. Which reminds me, you ARE NOT obligated to watch every season of a show that I give to you in this mode, merely the first season. Should you choose to watch any further seasons, I WILL give you stars for them though, and the episode total will simply combine the total of all seasons. Movies are fair game too! Almost always worth only 1 star though, and regular mode is really the only mode you'll ever get a movie. ☆☆☆☆☆ Hardcore Mode THIS MODE IS EXTREME!!! WHY IS IT EXTREME!? BECAUSEYEAH IT'S EXTREME!!! What's the point of this? Well this is for you brave people out there who want ALLLLLL THE STARS!!! In THIS mode, you get DOUBLE THE STARS FOR COMPLETING WHAT I GIVE YOU! But that's not all, you also LOSE DOUBLE WHAT YOU WOULD HAVE LOST BY DROPPING IT!!! Not evil enough? Well I daresay I'm not done here yet, THIS TIME AROUND, YOU AREN'T ALLOWED TO DROP THE ANIME I GIVE YOU! If you drop it between episode 0 and the end, you will LOSE stars! Double the loss of course! In addition to this however, in order to get your stars, you will need to provide a 250 word MINIMUM review of the show that you got. As long as it's 250 words, you're good to go, just make sure you don't confuse "review" with "plot summary." The numbers though! Every chunk of episodes will be worth 2 stars! 1-15 is 2 stars, 16-30 is 4 stars, and all that stuff!!

    I wish you all the best at your new workplace, @Optic. From what i've read above, your work sounds to be very stressful, take care of your health. To be frank, I think @brycec suits the role of the community manager the most but that's just my personal opinion.

    Just want to say thanks to @Optic senpai and the rest of the mods as well as members of this forum for maintaining such a well-mannered and friendly community, recently other forums I belong to have gotten very salty and have been that way a long time, this forum is just so fantastic; like a garden of Eden, love you all! ♥

    This is the exact reason I hesitate to share my own work here. I write for myself, and although I prefer to keep things tasteful in regards to sexual content, it is still very R18 and I would feel pretty awful if, say, a thirteen year old encountered one of my projects through AF.

    I think people still do them but post under anonymous means, especially fanfiction since a large portion of them turn into lemons. I would be interested in making a youtube channel myself but I don't have the technology to do it well (so I don't). Still, the random posts with a link to a video that were going on were crappy advertising attempts. You get far better advertising by interacting with people, commenting on important subjects and having the link on your profile or signature so that as people become interested in what you have to say they have a place they can go as opposed to indiscriminate spam.

    Just started play Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky this week, though the movie was disappointing. Hopefully, it ends up being good, even if gold farming is irritating.

    Both are disgusting in my opinion, people are very important and their emotions fragile; it is wrong to act as if you are the only important one and use others for your own pleasures while not caring for them, It truly makes me sick.
