Spyware/Malware Pop Up Ad
I'm FURIOUS about this rogue spyware/malware pop up ad that's been plaguing theOtaku of late.

We have a HARD policy against allowing pop ups of any kind, LET ALONE pop ups for malicious ads.

It kills our reputation among everyone--members, industry folks, partners, and advertisers--for nothing. We make no money from these ads, they're done by bottom-feeding companies that usually hide code in ads for unrelated topics.

I put a freeze on all advertising delivered to us by one of our ad partners. I'm hoping that puts a stop to the rogue ad, but I'm not sure since these things are incredibly hard to nail down

If you EVER get a pop up from theOtaku please tell me immediately. If you can also send me the source code of the page you see the pop up on AND take a screen shot, it would help too.

Whew.

Anyway, the Groundhog's Day post on theO was amazing.

Avatar Sizing
We have two options with avatars:
(1) We can leave them as-be but they'll look kind of ugly in Version Vibrant's comment box layout

(2) We can start from scratch and enforce a 100 x 100 or so pixel max size. This will make the comment box layout look 20 times nicer.

What do you think?

Groundhog's Day Otaku Style
I think we need a member to go outside on groundhog's day and look at his or her shadow. This will determine whether Version Vibrant will launch soon or be delayed further :-)

SomeGuy made an important, mysterious phone call recently. He hasn't made mention of what it was about, so I'd like to invite you all to speculate via fan fiction.

My theory is that it involves a girl, the Canadian Mounted Royal Police, the mafia, and Hayao Miyazaki.

Thank you all for the suggestions; it will take me time to go through them all.

Quick Scavenger Hunt
If you have free time I could use some help. I want to add a ton more categories for Anime and Video Games based on submissions to Misc. Anime and Other Video Games

If you could browse through a few pages of each and list categories you see represented there that don't exist as categories in our system, in the comments, I'd be appreciative.

The person with the most unique items wins, something...

Valentine's Day or Groundhog's Day?
Which do you prefer, Valentine's Day or Groundhog's Day?

When I'm single on VDay I'm not thrilled at seeing couples everywhere. When I'm in a relationship I'm not thrilled at the romantic expectations (and also feel guilty being a couple outside). Then again, Valentine's Day is usually one of our best days of the entire year for traffic (because of all the eCards floating around).

HOWEVER, Groundhog's Day doesn't discriminate, has no expectations, and there's an AMAZING movie based on it. The downside is that it's a pointless holiday and the groundhog is only right 39% of the time (worse odds than flipping a coin)

What do you think??

Weekly Town Hall Meetings
Gail, SomeGuy, myself, and the podcasters had a fun web-meeting with audio and chat. Wouldn't it be cool to have a live, weekly theOtaku town-hall meeting. One person from the team can be there and members can ask questions/bring up ideas they have/vent their frustrations/give compliments/etc.

Only the person from our team would have voice talking/moderation privileges to keep things from getting out of control.

What do you think??

PS: Is somegirl related to SomeGuy?

James today recommended a new word for 'spaces': 'worlds' - he said it's more playful/unique

What do you think? Head to head match-up:

theOtaku.com/worlds/sasukelover
theOtaku.com/spaces/sasukelover

Also, I love SomeGuy's description of Version Vibrant: "Powerfully badass"

I know I'm WAY behind on this, but I was browsing OB today and stumbled upon this

Graphic worms?? I'd never heard of them previously but LOVE the idea.

I wonder how we can incorporate this with theO
