One of the many new features that we're considering is to install mediawiki on the site. Even though we'll install the wiki software on this website, we're looking for someone who can properly maintain it, add templates to it and to act as head administrator over the wiki site. The wiki would involve adding pages for any anime and manga series, character biographies, episode guides, seiyuu, voice actors as long as it pertains to the anime and manga industry. If you're a registered member and you have experience with managing the wikimedia software, please contact me through the forums or by posting in the support topic that has been created in the "News and Support" forum.
During the course of the next several days, we'll be adding links to external sites that we feel are appropriate for our community, such as anime and manga news sites, retailer websites, other forum communities as well as anime and manga websites.
