Heck, I'd say you're the most powerful person here right now, Aoshi.  Motoko hasn't shown up in a while and Peter even less so.

hey careful wut u say waffo. We wouldn't want a revolt to happen  :-X
 
but it is true, we haven't seen any of them in a while now. Cgoten said he was leaving ( altough many thought he would at least visit sometimes) and Judau just never showed up after a while. Our leaders are looking more and more prehistoric.

Thanks for stroking my internet ego Waffo  ;) Yanime is the start of my plan to rule the internet world!

Yeah Judau came back for like a day then disappeared again. People's lives get in the way, no problem. At least we know Motoko is still alive by the fact her server is still up (cause if it was down, Yanime would disappear).

Cgoten was the start of it all. After he left, everybody else started leaving one by one. Unfortunate but bound to happen eventually.

Personally I check the boards once a day just to make sure nothing falls apart. I leave the one posters alone, cause thats too much moderating on something that won't stop. Only things I delete are ad posts and stuff you know is from a bot.

that leaves me with one question. How do you know when someone is using a bot? is there like a pattern that they go through

Well going back on topic, how about we make Yanime into a manga/anime suggestion site? All the current active members all have the same tastes in manga and anime so maybe we could gather like-minded individuals and then have a anime/manga series suggestion board or something? I'm not sure how effective this would be though...

You can tell bots by several different ways, including the following:

1) Email addresses (they have weird addresses that are usually based from some weird server, i.e. something@webhost.ru
2) Their speech pattern in the post. As you can tell most of us either don't use full punctuation or we do yet its only partial punction. Also just about everyone on the net uses some form of slang. Also have incomplete sentences
3) Links. An add bot will have multiple links to bogus sites, wise not to click any link that you're not familiar with.

@Asian: A suggestion sites sounds nice but with people with like-minds, suggestions only go so far. There won't be any variety in what we suggest, especially for those who don't have the same tastes as us.

Well I guess it's because there just aren't enough active members and I'm not sure why you would be banned, but try asking one of the mods.

No idea why you are banned since I don't hang out in the IRC channel like I should. That would be something you need to talk to Motoko about when Motoko appears again.

They usually aren't responding to anything other than the thread's title, as well.  Nothing like, "That's my favorite anime too" or "You said you play this game but how long does it take the average person?" and so on.  They never quote anyone like I'm doing now.  Just standalone statements. 


well you should, it's funtimes

The only thing I remember from my few trips to Yanime's irc channel was that no one believed that I was a girl.  When Charles said that I am, they ridiculed him for 'believing' me.  >_>  That was just weird.
