~Webmaster Due to storage issues on the server I'm in the process of moving some older database backups to external storage. This will resolve any storage issues for now. Sadly, due to the storage issues it is possible some data may not have been saved correctly. If any information has been lost please feel free to resubmit.  And yes I'm still around. Even if you don't hear from me. <3 ~Nyome

~Webmaster Hi everyone! I'm going to be heading out of state for about 2 1/2 weeks starting this Monday. If the site goes down I may not be able to fix it. But if it's any compensation the server has been up for almost 2 months so it is unlikely there will be a problem. Until I get back! Nyo~

Created topic Small Life Update
~Webmaster Hi everyone! At least the few of you who still check back every now and then at the site. I just wanted to let you all know I'm alive and well. Life has been amazing these last few months and I'm happier than I ever been in my life. I'm so grateful to have such wonderful people in my life who truly care and love me. It's not something I ever imagined possible. Anyway, I've finally reached a point in transition where I can start to focus on other things again. I'm not sure where this site will end up in my life plans yet but it is a very important part of my life and I'd hate to see it go to waste. I can't make any promises on what will happen. For now I just need more time. There's so many things I want to experience and do in this life. And I love this site and I love all of the hard work each and everyone one of you have put into it. But, until I'm able to find that answer all I can do is ask for your patience. Jaa ne! Livvie PS: Since the site still does pull in a tiny bit of ad revenue all earnings are being put aside for future advertising, promotions, or simply spent on prizes to be given away during an event.

~Webmaster Hi guys!  I'm going to be moving to a new apartment. I'm hoping to minimize site downtime as much as possible but as a result of the move the site may be down a day or two. I'm hoping it will not extend longer than that. But it all depends on how fast the internet provider can get internet up and running. I'll be doing a small update on the video page soon to update with the new crunchyroll embeds.  Just a small update, I'm doing great! Happier than I've ever been in my life. I'm finally living full time as female. I'm really sorry for the lack of attention to the site. I'm still discovering myself and until I'm at a better point in my life I won't have much time for updates. Once I can start to focus on other things than my transition I'll be sure to come back and work on the site again. As always I'm looking for any help. If anyone is interested in helping out with the code be sure to let me know! <3 Nyome

Created topic Special Message
~Webmaster I wanted to take time to explain my absence from the site over the last few months. Since the beginning of December last year I’ve been making a lot of changes to my life in order to pursue something I’ve never thought I’d have the courage to do in my life. I have been unable to talk about it publicly due to issues at work and fear of people finding out before I was ready. Now that everyone knows I can finally share this news with you all today. For the last 5 months I have been working to transition my sex from male to female. Ever since I was a child I've always wanted to be female and never felt comfortable living as a male. It’s been very difficult for me and as a result of the hardships and struggles I've faced internally as I fought to gain the courage to accept and be myself. I never could have made it without this website and my friends. OtakuElite was a project that helped me find comfort in myself and is still a dream of mine to be able to work on full time. However, at this time I've been finally able to begin to discover who I really am. To become the type of person I've always wanted to. While I want to return to working on the site again at this time it is very difficult for me. I will continue to work toward doing smaller updates and fixing up the site where needed. But the site is no longer a project I need to distract myself from reality. I love OtakuElite. I will continue to make it stronger and better than ever before. But for now I am asking time to discover who I am. I’m hoping to have an update in the near future. I will only be working on features which users really want. My focus on future updates will be on fixing up the anime database and social features such as blogs and profiles. I love everyone who has devoted time to the site and I want you to continue to use the site as always. I’m still checking back constantly and wanting to add more. But for now, I just need time to be myself as for the first time in my life I really am understanding just how great life is and how much I love myself and everyone who has been there for me. You all mean the world to me. If anyone is interested in helping with coding for the site be sure to let me know. I’m always looking for help. <3 Livvie

Created topic Blog Update Part I: Tag filters
~Webmaster Didn't get as much as I wanted to this weekend. But I'm still in the process of slowly getting myself back into coding so you'll have to bare with me.       For this tiny update you'll be able to now click on tags on blog posts to search for other posts by that user with similar tags. I plan on adding a new settings page for blogs specifically. I'm holding off on the ability to add tags to the side bar since I want to add it as part of a new widget system. To keep things simple the first widget will be the option to add a custom HTML box to the side bar. You will be able to use that to add custom tag links. To link to a specific tag to your blog it'll be... /users/blog/?u=YourUserId&tag=TagName Your user id is the number shown in the URL next to the "u" querystring. Example: /users/blog/?u=4  &tag=anime I plan to add more features include the YT embeds very soon. I'm still looking into updating the blog editor to the latest version and include a custom YT embed plugin that is very powerful and easy to use. Until next time! ~Webmaster

Replied to Reasonable Suggestions to Help make the Site even Better.
~Webmaster After working with tumblr a bit I decided that drafts wouldn't be a bad idea as well as an option to schedule release times for posts. So you can write 2 blogs and set one of them for next week at a set time if you're expecting to be away. As for private messages? There is nothing planned. As for now I'm working on amazon ads which I just manage to start making progress into since I'm starting to get a bit of free time.
