The Anime Faction History Preservation Society

The History of The Anime Faction:

The Anime Faction (AF) was founded on May 18, 2006 by H8TD1 as a private faction on GameTrailers.com (GT), which is owned by SPIKE TV. Not too long afterwards, H8TD1 had some problems with GT admin/mods and PT-Desu was picked as the next founder, a position he still holds to this day. Over the years we grew to become the largest faction on the site, larger than the Xbox 360 Faction and the PS3 Faction (on a gaming site no less) with more than 2,500* members. Around October of 2011, GT announced that the site would undergo a complete redesign and that in the process they would permanently be getting rid of factions. Following the announcement, we decided to create our own forum to keep our faction together, and on November 6, 2011, these forums officially opened to the public.** Over the next few months, regulars to AF slowly migrated to the new site, and the GT Anime Faction became less and less active. On June 27, 2012, GameTrailers implemented the site redesign and our original forum was lost forever.

We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and active community here at AF. We're always looking for new ways to attract new members such as a YouTube Channel, a DeviantArt profile, Steam Group, creating threads with lots of downloadable content, forum games & competitions, and more. The Anime Faction is here to stay.


* Don't know the exact number, the last I was able to check it was at least that. The actual number was probably larger.
** At first you had to register before you could view the forums. After a couple weeks, we made the forums viewable to guests.

NOTE: Event below is over, our original forums are gone for good. Browse this thread for screen shots of some of our best memories.

Think of this as a unofficial longterm event. The goal of this is to preserve the history of our group before it is lost forever.

Much like the first time Gametrailers changed their forums. History repeats itself once more and all our years of memories is at stake, again.

So if you're a still a member of the AnimeFaction in gametrailers. I'd like you to go deep into the history and look for past events and any particularly memorable pieces of our group history, and re-upload them or link to them so someone else can re-upload.

Also be sure to collect all the events and all the rules to the events. For backup.



Memorable threads.
