First of all, we need to advertise ourselves on one of the biggest online communities in the world: YouTube. In fact, I just created ourselves a YouTube channel (just to reserve the name).
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
The email is [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I'll PM Nana & PT the password if they want to work on it. Seeing what Nana and PT did to this site, I'm sure they can make the YouTube channel one of the best-looking anime channels on YouTube (change the background, add a banner, and all that stuff).

As to what we'll add:
1.) An advertisement for the site. That will be the feature video when you go to the channel.

2.) Member-made content. If we have any AMV contests, we can post them on the channel.

3.) ... random stuff. Download AMVs from sites like [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], etc and post them on our channel (we'll of course give credits to the makers and link to their sites in the description, but we'll also advertise our site).

Basically, just do what it takes to draw people to the YouTube channel so the YouTube channel can draw people to this site.

To go alongside FullArmageddon's idea.

Archiving and uploading some of the classic AF media from the GT years would be great.

As an example, the 2007 AF awards created by FiendNinja

It can be done, only if you people provide me with the footage.

Under the Art & Graphics section, could we have a Video Editing section? I want to make a thread for our YouTube channel so people can post stuff to upload to it. I've been working on the layout of the channel a bit and uploaded a video to test things. We're eventually going to need someone to make a nice background pic/pattern, banner, and avatar for the channel (I have no experience with photo editing).

Also, just an FYI for everyone, the YouTube channel isn't just for AMVs, it's for anything Japan related. We can make different playlists, so if someone makes a video, we'll add it to the appropriate playlist. We'll give you full credit in the description, and maybe PT & Nana could arrange some perks/awards/rank increases for people that contribute videos (that they made). Or just like PT had the rank badges for signatures from GT, maybe we could make different contributor badges. So we could have a video contributor badge, and the more videos you contribute, the higher your rank goes. Just an idea.

User Movies & Video board added.

And I'll revise some stuff and get it done with the awards and such.

I think another set of forum renovations is a good move.

For the game related section I think instead of individual sections, just have a "General Gaming" forum. Then have people label their threads accordingly.

Also the event forums could use a unofficial user event subforum where anyone could organize whatever.

Nippon Gakuen doesn't need to exist as it's blog material and NanaBox could just be a sticky in the media section. Rossens section would fit better as a blog.

PSP text limit achieved. Woooooo

There is too little of a differance between the Usermade Art, Graphical Editing,Gallery, and the "post your" sections.

The first two sections could easily be merged into one usermade arts section. The post random Amv's thread could be stickied in the anime section. And the desktop thread in the general discussion section alongside /n/

Gallery doesn't to exist, as it can be blog material.

This is called the Anime Faction. Anime, Manga, vn's and everthing related should be up top in the spotlight.

----- Pc capable edit.

AF Mockup

(Welcome to Anime Faction)
Rules & Introduce Yourself (Throw affiliations in here)
News & Official Events

(Otaku's home)
Anime (Non usermade amv posts go in a sticky here)
Manga
Visual Novels

(General & Stuff)
General Discussion (Post your, threads go here)
General Gaming (Merge all the gaming into here)
General Media (Nanabox goes here)

(Usermade Central)
User Events
Usermade Arts (If you made it you can post it)
Blogs (Throw the only nippon gakuen thread in here alongside Rossen's subforum or merge those threads into the blogsection)

The idea is to reduce the amount of boundaries and splits in the forums. Everything is too scattered about. Reduces the number of forum sections from 21 to 11.

I agree with this merger I always thought it was too spread out. This might even create more activity.

There is a Black Ops 2 thread in the General Media section:

We already have a BO2 thread [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], so just delete that one.

question: is there a way for a thread to show up as the "latest updated thread" if the op update/edit something in the op post?

my shit gallery doesn't show as updated if I edit the op post with new material and doesn't show up on the main thread listings as "newly updated"

Not quite sure, I'll have to look into the thread options then perhaps.

I'm almost sure it's not possible.
But if you are putting everything in the OP, just bump your own thread saying that you updated it.

Sadly i don't think this is an option as of now, even though i really wanted it :(
We are running on a completely free to use forum so it has it's limitations.

But there might be a script that allows it, i'll look into it

Since the AF $ System is in place, I have a suggestion.
Since the likes of Nanamix, PT, me are able to create sigs(others too), in the [USER MADE CENTRAL] segment, there could be another segment for GFX Shops, where the designers of AF can have shops and make/sell sigs for some AF $. Tho I leave the pricing to PT and Nanamix.

It could be fun, and at the end of the year we could rate the GFX-shops, by for example:
1) MOST SIGS SOLD
2) MOST MONEY GAINED(besides sigs, we will be making avatars, etc.)
3) SHOP WITH MOST VIEWS

Just an idea, figured I'd share it.


The purposes is to avoid dual threads in the usermade segment, since that place should be about showcase, contests. And not to say, Sig Shoping would be a lot easier if it had it's own segment, and by nature it would be different since it is somewhat of a commercial nature since we would be e-payed(lol)
