Anime recommendation thread is up:

Note down the link for the people that come asking for recommendations and if you're interested in making recommendations; bookmark or favorite.

I did my job. I will now redirect all recc threads there.

You can't comment as anonymous anymore here (at least I can't), we finally got spoiler tags, who knows! Maybe Addy will finally give us a sticky too!

I'm not sure how much I agree with the idea itself, but I admire the initiative.

I dont think it should be a request board, it should be more of a board for people to post what anime they think are good and then just have it linked to rec threads
User avatar #743364 to #743358 - TheMather ONLINE (08/14/2013) [-]
That would actually be less useful, as we've already got MAL and Anime-Planet for that.
When the reccomendations are specialized for the ones requesting them, it's more likely it'll suit them than if they just were to pick something out from a list of "this is good".

How does this work in terms of getting people to it? It's no different than the process we use already if we tell people to go there. Are we just expecting that place to become active enough to regularly roll from?

I was wondering the same thing. Redirecting people there will be just as big of a hassle as telling them to check MAL or whatever it is that we do at the moment.

Can I have that image you created of a bunch of rec threads?

I'm making a post for this and I'd like to use that.
User avatar #743420 to #743362 - christmouth (08/14/2013) [-]
Maybe it will catch on, if one knows about it, then he won't be back her to ask again, and that will lower the amount of rec threads by a small amount. The worst that can happen is that no one will use it, and nothing changes.

There'll obviously always be some people asking for recommendations here, but as people come here to ask for it, they may notice that other people were referred there instead of making a new one and just hoping not to simply get told off like now.
It would also work as a go-to place for regulars and lurkers, as it can be a real bother to search for new stuff even when you've got a good month of anime under your belt.
User avatar #743351 to #743317 - christmouth (08/14/2013) [-]
Maybe you could advertise it on the Anime/manga channel?

I'm no good at appealing to people. If I tried the post would probably die with 20 red thumbs.
User avatar #743365 to #743353 - anonymousbrony (08/14/2013) [-]
I might try something. If it bombs I'll delete it, but I don't care much for thumbs.

If I actually do post something, I'll link it on your profile if you want.

Whip something up in GIMP or CS6. Be like a Disney employee, and they will follow.
User avatar #743384 to #743382 - anonymousbrony (08/14/2013) [-]
I was planning to use GIMP, but what do you mean be like a Disney employee?

I understand completely.

My keyboard decided it's going to type in Chinese apparently mid typing.

What I attempted to type was, "Oh lol, I understand."

Cool. Oh, and because I am curious, what's with the username?

I dunno. I like MLP and I'm anonymous?

I sort of just pulled it out of thin air.

My god, GIMP opened slowly. Fuck fonts.
#743423 to #743421 - bababadsheep (08/14/2013) [-]
You still mingle with them?
#743425 to #743423 - anonymousbrony (08/14/2013) [-]
Who? Anons or Bronys?   
Or both?

I'll give you a hint. Never again. But I am loathe to delete such a large folder. Curse my hoarding nature.
#743434 to #743426 - anonymousbrony (08/14/2013) [-]
Well, I used to spend most of my time on the FJ Pony thread. When they took that down I visited FJ less. When they created boards, I went on the brony board a little here and there, but I never became a regular. A little over seven months ago I started coming to the anime board.

I still have my folder though. This is a very old screen cap. I broke 2,000 a long time ago.

That was fucking weird...
User avatar #743356 to #743353 - christmouth (08/14/2013) [-]
Or just make a post about the board there, but it's your call.

This is a good idea, but I'm expecting it to backfire horribly sometime in the future.
User avatar #743328 to #743324 - TheMather ONLINE (08/14/2013) [-]
Not sure how it would backfire. If it gets popular I'll be spammed with notifications, but I can handle that.
User avatar #743329 to #743328 - postie (08/14/2013) [-]
It will attract the trolls more than likely.
User avatar #743336 to #743329 - TheMather ONLINE (08/14/2013) [-]
Well, if it becomes necessary I can delete posts and IP ban, so it'd be easier to clear up trolls there than in this board.
