Exclamation Want new forums ? READ!

Well as you probably know i've been awfully busy with work and other stuff these past few weeks so haven't had time to check out forum requests...

To make it easy for me, I'm only adding anime series forums nothing else.. so if you want to request a new anime series forum you need to do some work

reply to this thread with below 3 criteria/info requested
============================================
1. name the anime series forum(s) you want

2. in Forum Requests forum (this forum http://animeboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=6 ) you need to find and link to as many threads related to requesting the same anime series forum you want - means if you want an Orphen forum, list all threads requesting orphen forum - the more threads better chance of forum being added by me

3. in General and Other Anime forum http://animeboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=10 do the same find and list as many thread urls related to the anime you're requesting to have a forum i.e. all threads discussing Orphen - the more threads better chance of forum being added by me

that's how i decide on new forums mainly, so you see if you want a particular new anime series forum you'll have to do some work on the 3 points above.
=========
btw, Orphen forum is already on the list of new anime forums to be added

not all requested anime series will get a forum though
==========

As for tv series, X definitely needs one

Is the only thread but there are good reason in it mentioned why this forum should exist

As you can this series has caused quite a bit of discussion here, here, and here
While not an X specific thread, this thread does illustrate the point that X is a very popular series. This isn't even mentoining the fact the wealth of material that can be discussed because of this series

Excel Saga

http://animeboards.com/search.php?s=...by=&sortorder=
Excluding that Speed Racer thread, thats 4 Excel Saga thread requests

A search in GAD brought up 211 threads. They might not all focus on Excel Saga itself, but it shows how popular it is.
A search on its spinoff, Puni Puni Poemi brought up another 40 threads.

Now compare that with PA's first post. Can you tell how popular Excel Saga is?

edit: oops, PA's search brought up 1777 posts But he searched the whole AB, whereas I only searched GAD

I though Eva2k's example was all threads discussing the anime not all threads mentioning it......

Anyway even though PA mentioned it as if I'm not going to try, since I've been trying for Ten months to get this damn forum.

X

Here's the thread started by yours truly - My X Request Thread

And In GAD I've searched for any threads that mention the name Kamui. Kamui is the main character of X and with his name mentioned there is a better chance of people discussing it. ANd heres threads that concern X.

X/1999 X series (merged)

The Official X Thread

X Tv Series

Question about X/1999

X, the most depressing anime movie ever? *spoiler*

X- The Manga

X - TV Series

X The OAV

a X anime info??pllllzzz

Another X question...sorry

X the movie....

An anime called "X"

'X'

Westlo, the series' name being mentioned a lot shows its popularity. Besides, you don't expect me to dig thru and post all those threads that ONLY discuss about that series, do you?

So if it was in alot of worst anime threads it's okay because it's being mentioned?

And no I don't expect you to Shax I'm only saying what Eva2000 set as a guideline

As said by eva2k

do the same find and list as many thread urls related to the anime you're requesting to have a forum i.e. all threads discussing Orphen

One mention in a top ten list doesn't create much discussion and I don't see how a thread like that is going to be pulled into a Hellsing forum. Which is why i think Eva2k wants us to give the urls so he can move the threads into the new forum if he decides to give that anime a forum.

Anyway I got to go get urls for all the threads I mentioned.

RahXephon

http://animeboards.com/t36749/s.html

And here's some threads discussing it

RahXephon

RahXephon Movie in 2003

RahXephon Kits

RahXephon

From the Makers of the Escaflowne and Cowboy Bebop movies

RahXephon is also in 83 topics in GA already, not bad considering it only started airing the last day of january this year.....

RahXephon is also one of ADV's Flagship titles for next year and is already confirmed for an Australian release.

Anyway Eva2000 are we going to have mods for these forums? I think you and/or Wolfpac will be doing Orphen but what about the rest?

*Yawn* A Ghost in the shell/ Shirrow Forum.

I only got through the first five pages. All links below contain pages about GiTS, either the movie, series or possible sequal. There's an appleseed in there as well because it's Fiend's and I think a Shirrow forum would clear up all possible future requests about say an appleseed forum ? *click*

The official request.

*click*

*click*

*click*

*click*

*click*

Appleseed .. er .. *click*

Here are the few X threads Westlo missed that I managed to find---well, I think PA listed one of them, but hey:

X/1999 or just X

Anyone know X?

Question for you X/1999 fan girls...

X/1999 Manga

Just how much action is in X?

It is also mentioned in another request thread entitled Some more demands, as is Fruits Basket.

The Fruits Basket threads I could find are as follows:

Fruits Basket Forum (request)

Fruits Basket!

Fruits Basket Questions... (Spoilers)

Fruits Basket?

Fruit basket?

Fruits Basket o.o;;

(Whee! Two series requests for the price of one!)

EDIT: Found one more X thread.

EDIT #2: And another Fruits Basket thread. Can't be too thorough.

Well it's kind of impossible to find at least 1 topic dedicated to a small television program that nobody has the attention of noticing it. Examples- Baketseru Hunters and Vampire Princess Miyu.

(About Princess Miyu, there are threads dedicated to her, but I created those threads. Does that count?)

BTW, are you going to un-mask the "secret" forums names, or is it a "Sore Wa Himitsu Desu?" (That's a secret) for now?
