  1. Citrus and Ryuuou no Oshigoto were really fun to watch, but I'd have to nominate Yuru Camp as almost inexplicably the best by far from the Winter airing season.
  2. Local network-attached-storage server--2xRAID10 arrays, one 8x8TB and one 4x10TB for a total of around 47TB functional space. Nearly an equal amount scattered across older external HDDs for backup stored elsewhere. More than just anime stored, obviously, but it's part of the system. Also, a few million 5.25" floppys for secondary backup (3.5" users are poseurs and modernist deviants). Never really trusted cloud stroage. It's actually not really a paranoia thing, but that would be easier to explain.
  3. didn't see the thread till now. Peer review and open discussions are solid points and are probably the best policy changes it could have going forward for building and encouraging trust between users and staff. I've been a part of various groups and IRC stuff on and off for a few years; mostly off, since I don't like people very much, but I see a lot of places and people and all sorts of group dynamics and environments. In the time I've been kicking around this place, I would say that #Kametsu doesn't really have any genuinely world-class asshole douchecanoe users stinking up the place and causing real mood-killing problems in the chat (even the actual official Moodkiller does not count for this), so a heavy hand is not really needed to run the place except when obvious outsiders come in to troll and destroy. These types are usually not regulars, and they're easy to spot, deal with, and move on from. That fact of there being generally decent folk around the place is probably what really amplifies the problem people had/have with heavy-handed or capricious administration (and that's just fancy talk for "why the hell did you kick him for no reason??!")... but it's also an easy fix, it starts at the top, and the stuff you've outlined above is a good step in that direction. But I'm worried about one point though--you say "joke kicking" is now on the Not-List, and that's probably a good thing since those things inevitably get taken too far at some point, but you're still going to joke-kick Etzimal at least once in a while right??! It wouldn't be the same and I think that one rule may do more harm than good..
  4. If we were only talking about Eps 1-9(ish), I'd totally agree and almost nominated it myself. But that Fairwind arc just fizzled for me...
  5. Some members of UTR resurfaced on PrivateHD, and their group quality restrictions were amended to account for PHD's generally higher quality guidelines.
  6. Scooby-Doo! Camp Scare (2010), Scooby-Doo! Alien Invaders (2000), & Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright (2013).
  7. wasn't too interested in the Spring stuff... Re:ZERO seemed by far the best, with Bakuon!! as a distant consolation/guilty pleasure prize.
  8. Used to be a fan of 720p when I first started collecting--it seemed like a decent enough balance between quality and size. Now though, almost entirely 1080p if I can find it--the quality difference is usually sufficient enough to more than justify the larger storage requirements (usually better audio encoding at this level, as well), and large hard drives are easy to obtain. The major exception would be older sets that have been re-released on BD, sometimes the upscaling effects are mitigated by a 720p encode better than a full 1080.
