New server !!!
22 Oct 2010

Hello, everyone,

Next Monday (25th of October) it will be one year since MyAnimeShelf was officially opened to public. It’s MyAnimeShelf’s Birthday! Yuppie! :D

Birthday means presents. So, we decided to make a present for ourselves, for MyAnimeShelf, for our users. And we’ve chosen one. Guess what?..

A new server!!!

Until now we were sharing a server with a number of other sites. That’s what common fan-projects usually do. But from now on we will have our own dedicated server (it is located in Germany), which means Shelf’s pages will be loading faster. We’re moving to a «business level». One may notice that we still don’t have that many users and so on, but it seems that normal hosting can’t handle Shelf’s databases and other features anymore. And our users' comfort is our first priority. Most huge web-projects do use dedicated servers, and now we’re joining them as well.

We’re still configuring things here and there, so please give us some time. When we finish, I hope you’ll be impressed with our speed.

Thanks for staying with us :) And be ready for more surprises!

Figures' shelves upgraded !!!
10 Oct 2010

Mina-san,

We have returned with a new update. This time we upgraded the figures' shelves of our users. From now on when you grab a figurine to your shelf, you will be asked to fill in a small form. You may want to give a detailed information about your figurine (like when and where did you purchase it, etc.)… or may not :)

You can edit your current figurines in the editor mode on your shelf. I also suggest checking your preorder list: you’ll probably get surprised.

We didn’t have much time to test it, so please if something in your opinion doesn’t work correctly — report!
Thank you for staying with us :)

Fall Lottery has started!
18 Sep 2010

MyAnimeShelf Fall lottery has just started!

OMG, we have a marvelous prize this time — Asuka Test Plugsuit Version by Kotobukiya. It’s 1/6! And it’s sculpted by Tsukuru Shirahige, who did the previous Rei, Asuka and Mari 1/6 figures from Kotobukiya. Moreover, according to manufacturer, the green parts of the new figurine’s suit will be painted with special fluorescent paint!

The rules haven’t been changed, except for the cost of the tickets:
1 ticket = 60 SP
1 ticket = 40 RP

There also will be smaller prizes, but we’ll keep it secret for now.
You may guess what title they will have connection with ^^

Good luck to everyone!

Summer Lottery: winners!!!
15 Sep 2010

We are ready to announce the winners of our Summer Lottery! Which means the prizes will be soon shipped to different towns to find their new home. Is it luck? Or is it something one deserves? It’s up to you to decide. If you ask me, I’m very happy for all guys and it will be a pleasure to ship the rewards. I hope you like our lottery idea and I hope you’ll be participating in the next one.

Wow, the tickets pile is impressive:

In total 258 tickets were «sold».

List of tickets

The winner of the Wishes Contest
10 Sep 2010

Michelle heartily thanks everyone for the warm wishes. She was so deeply touched by your comments that it took her quite a while to choose a winner. Finally she made a desicion, and the winner of the Wishes Contest is...




Michelle was charmed by Vivi's photo, since she likes flowers and jewelry and does collect figurines. Besides, as you all know, Michelle is a shy person, who has started her musician career recently, so Miku is a kind of idol for her. Michelle dreams to become as brave and magnificent as Miku one day.

Congratulations, Vivi!

Please do us a favor to accept a small gift for your work. The first ever made MyAnimeShelf cup!


With Michelle on one side.



And our second mascot on the other.

Michelle also thanks Flan and Salvadora for their delightful arts. Both girls will receive bonus-SP, which they can use in current Lottery or save for the next one.

Happy Birthday, Michelle!
06 Sep 2010

Did you know that it's a very special day today? Today is Michelle's Birthday!

Michelle is a guardian and talisman of MyAnimeShelf. She keeps our site a comfortable and gentle place where everyone is welcome.

Happy Birthday, Michelle !!!

I wish you love, friendship, piece and joy.
I wish you all the pleasures the world has to give.




And what would you like to wish our little girl?
Arranged to Michelle's Sixteen Birthday, we're starting a small contest - a Wishes' Contest! All you have to do is write your congratulation in a comment to this post. You can use images or videos if you like or come to nothing more than a few apt words. Both English and Russian language are acceptable. You have time until Wednesday (which means two days).

The winner will be chosen by Michelle and rewarded with a MyAnimeShelf souvenir with Michelle's face on it.

Summer Lottery ends soon!
02 Sep 2010

Hi everyone, I brought you some details on our Summer Lottery which is finally approaching the end.

The event will be stopped on 10 September, 23:00 (Moscow time). That means you won’t be able to buy lottery tickets with SP (shelf points) from this point. At the same time you will receive your bonus-tickets: 1 ticket per every 30 RP (rating points).

Check what time will be at your place.

When it comes to your entries — all the figures added before 7 September, 23:00 (Moscow time) will be moderated before the end of the lottery. Everything added later will be moderated afterwards. Remember, that blank fields in anime database can be edited without premoderation. Thank you.

The results of the lottery will be announced within a day or two after it ends. I wish everyone good luck. Saber looks forward to meet her new owner!

Michelle congratulates everyone with the new academic year! Drawn by Flan.

Let’s welcome Platina!
28 Aug 2010

Platina has joined the team as Anime Database Keeper.
Dear Platina, thank you for your support and please take care of our Database :)

Figurines form upgraded
28 Jul 2010

Hi everyone, I’m happy to introduce our new system of uploading figures to the database.

From now on all your figures will appear on our database immediately. Though they will be marked as blocked which means no one will be able to comment, rate or add these figures to their shelves. Also they will not be shown on our main page. So, the only reason for this innovation was to avoid duplicates, because it will be possible to find the blocked figures while searching our base. We gave them red frames in order to make it easier to recognize them.
Later a moderator will approve your figurine, unblock it and reward you with SP. You will receive a notification e-mail.

We also do have a special feature for those of you whose entries are always perfect. In case you don’t know what I am talking about, there is a group of privileged users who are able to upload figurines without blockage. If you want to be within the group just try to do your best while adding figurines to the base.

Figurines database also got some tiny fixes here and there. And don’t forget to report bugs if any.

Thank you.

Let's welcome Impending_Sky!
28 Jul 2010

Impending_Sky has joined the team as a figurines database keeper. She will help me to check your entries and reward you with SP. A good moment to become friends with Impending_Sky, huh? Good luck and thank you for your support which is truly invaluable.

Btw, MyAnimeShelf Team is always recruiting new members. Want to develop the project with us? Contact me.

«Add a figure form» unavailable
26 Jul 2010

First of all, I am happy to announce that Shelf admins are back. Did you miss us? ^^ Glad to see that the place is successfully living on its own.

All righty then, I guess I’m going to be pretty busy with Shelf matters these days. Have quite a bunch of stuff, like small bugs, pms and off course figurines waiting for moderation. Please give us some time to manage everything. If you have a problem or question on fire, feel free to contact me via PM, e-mail or chat.

And the second thing I should inform you about — we are going to upgrade our figurines database in the nearest future and that’s why «Add a figure!» form is temporarily unavailable. I apologize for the inconvenience caused. It won’t take too long.

Shelf admins on Holiday
12 Jul 2010

From 12 July till 26 July both Shelf administrators will be away… for Honeymoon :D Because of that all issues which need our presence will have to wait — including the premoderation of the figurines. I am extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused. I promise I won’t marry again.

Banners & signatures
24 Jun 2010

Mina-san,
We have prepared some MyAnimeShelf banners and signatures for you — fell free to use them wherever you want.
I know it’s not much, so if you happen to draw something cute yourself, don’t be shy to share with us. The artists of the best custom banners will receive 20 SP for each banner we would like to use as an official MyAnimeShelf pic.

 

Banners from Amiche:

«Share» buttons

Spring Lottery: results!!!
13 Jun 2010 Mina-san,
I am ready to announce the results of the Spring Lottery!

Once again we decided to record a video for you to make the process more entertaining. However, watching us preparing all 119 tickets would be pretty boring, that’s why we had made everything ready in advance and recorded only the part with drawing.

The pictures of the preparation:













Before showing you the video…

So, here is the video:



Of course, we do not force you to watch the video. You can know the names of the winners by simply opening the spoiler below.

The winners:

For those who haven’t won a thing, I’m really sorry. Hope, you’ll be luckier next time, speaking of which – you can expect the details on the new event very soon!

BTW, have you noticed…
Spring lottery: one last step

Spring Lottery is over. Bonus tickets were sent to those of you who has gained 15 RP or more during spring 2010.

In total 119 tickets were «sold».

List of tickets

That means 1 ticket gives you 0.84% chance to win Azusa Nendoroid, the main prize.

The results will be announced on Sunday.

The winners will be chosen by random. I wish everyone good luck and stay tuned!

EDIT:
1 ticket was removed from the list (it got there by mistake). So, it's 119 tickets now.

The lottery was extended
11 Jun 2010

Due to an outrageous number of figurines added on the last day of the Lottery it was decided to extend it for
one day. You will be able to buy tickets up to 23:00, June 11 (Moscow time). The results will be most likely revealed on Sunday.

Check what time will be at your place.

Spring Lottery: details
07 Jun 2010

The team is snowed under with entries, so I have to limit the number of figures we will process. All the figures added before June, 8th 23:00 (Moscow time) will be moderated before the end of the lottery. Everything that will be added after this time will be moderated afterwards. Remember, that blank fields in anime database can be edited without premoderation. Thank you.

Check what time will be at your place.

English FAQ & figure types
07 Jun 2010

English FAQ was finally upgraded. Huge thanks go to usagi_joou who wrote the largest part of it :)

I’ve also added the following new figures types:
— Re-Ment
— Official Garage Kit
— Unofficial Garage Kit

Re-ments are different food, animal, fashion, etc. miniatures.

As usual, if you have any ideas on developing our project — don’t be shy. You may also want us to include some more info in the FAQ. So, any questions?

Spring Lottery ends soon!
03 Jun 2010

Our Spring Lottery is coming to the end — and here are the details:

The event will be stopped on June 10th, 23:00 (Moscow time). That means you won’t be able to buy lottery tickets with SP (shelf points) from this point. At the same time you will receive your bonus-tickets: 1 ticket per every 15 RP (rating points).

Check what time will be at your place.

Once again I will try see all your data to be processed beforehand. Good luck to everyone.
The results of the lottery will be announced within a day or two after it ends.

Are you taking part in the Lottery this time? :)

In addition, I would like to show you a new Michelle art drawn by our user Skipper:

Michelle's returned with presents...
14 May 2010

Michelle wants to repay your kindness and asked me to give SP bonus to the following users:

Pluvia33
Pineappleskewer
Salvadora

The last person mentioned is a young promising artist from Russia who has recently presented us this lovely picture of Michelle playing violin.

Along with SP bonus all three will receive a special award visible on their shelves. Thank you!

MyAnimeShelf brand-new look
08 May 2010

Mina-san, we are back with the new update! *smiles happily*

Huh, this one turned out to be pretty big, yeah? It took us quite a long time to handle everything. Have you noticed some changes already? ^_^
Don’t really know what to start from. I’ve probably forgotten part of it anyways T__T
Ok, here we go:

  1. We’ve got a brand-new look!
    Well, not totally new, but lots of things such as fonts, color scheme, comments design, etc. got affected.
    Hope, you’ll like it more than the old Shelf :D
  2. Two gorgeous arts were drawn for MyAnimeShelf by a talented Russian artist called Mistrie.
    You can see them both on the background of the site. I’m sorry, but the full-size pictures are only visible to the owners of wide-screen monitors.
    So, how do you like Michelle’s new style? Looks like she decided to go a little bit vintage ~^_^~
    And who is this mysterious girl on the other side?..
  3. Talking about Michelle, she got her own page, where you can enjoy her story written by pluvia33 and a couple of illustrations drawn by different users. By the way, if you like drawing, you can contribute as well!
    Huge thanks go to pluvia33 and pineappleskewer!
  4. User control panel was added. So far it includes private messages and last comments option.
    Huh, should I explain any further? Well… Yeah, this means now we’re able to write PMs! Send me something! ~^_^~
    The second feature gathers the latest comments you’ve received on a special page. The mechanics it uses is quite complicated. I would be happy to hear your impressions on it :)
  5. Chat option was added for those of us who has nothing to do at work ^_^"
    You can activate the chat window by clicking the corresponding button on your CP panel. You can deactivate it by clicking the same button again. By the way, it’s perfectly fine to browse the site while chatting on the same window — you won’t lose any of it!
    How about making a small test? Let’s all open the chat window and say a couple of words to each other :)
  6. External links were added to figure’s pages. If you stumble upon a great photo-review of a particular figurine, don’t forget to share a link with us using this new externals links feature. Proceed to any figurine’s page to see how it works.
  7. New photo viewer mode was added. Now you can choose between the line mode (the old one) and the sausage mode (forgive the name, nothing better came into my head). Proceed to any figurine photo-session to see how it works.

And that’s all for the most of it. Lots of other small fixes have been made, most of which are somehow connected to Internet Explorer browser.

Hope, you enjoyed Shelf’s new look and features. Thank you!

Anime rating formula
17 Apr 2010

Rating formula for anime was upgraded. Now it depends not only on marks, but on the number of voters as well. You can see the new leaders on the front-page from now on. Weighted average was also keeped for everyone’s convenience.

Let's welcome Velorn!
17 Apr 2010

I'm glad to announce that Velorn has joined MyAnimeShelf Team as our anime database keeper.
Thanks for joining! I'm very happy about it :)

Mass upload
10 Apr 2010

'My Photos' design was changed.
Mass upload feature was added.

I’ve also provided the form with some notes, check them before uploading something for the first time.

Thank you for staying with us. We’ll be happy to return with more upgrades.

Activity page & more!
29 Mar 2010

Mina-san, say welcome to our next update. This time it includes the following:

— figure edition is back
— search-process within anime database takes less time (still being tested)
— some figure identification bugs were fixed
— outer images don’t mutilate the site anymore
— users activity page was added

Enjoy!

… and don’t forget to report any bugs found :)

"Add a figure!" form returns!
24 Mar 2010

Ok, the form has been upgraded. It became more clever and will help you to fill in everything properly.
We have also installed another cute feature: now it’s possible to upload a bunch of trading figures at a time. Hope, it will reduce the time needed to add big series of figurines.

I kindly ask you to test our new form by adding a figurine or two, but keep in mind that it can still have bugs.
Please don’t be confused — report them!

"Add a figure!" form unavailable
21 Mar 2010

"Add a figure!" form is temporarily unavailable due to upgrade process.
We'll introduce a more powerful form to you in a couple of days.

Mail problems & awards
15 Mar 2010

Current news… would you like me to start with the good or with the bad one?

Ok, let’s start with the bad:
For some reason MyAnimeShelf has troubles delivering notification emails again. It may affect every domain including gmail. We’re investigating the issue at the moment. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

And the good news is:
We’re adding a new awards system. In short, you will have a special section «in your room» where your awards will be shown if any.
There would be 2 types of awards: static awards and challenge cups. For example, the owner of the biggest figurine collection (challenge), etc.
The work on this feature is still in progress, but the first awards has been already given to some of you.

Thank you for your time!

Spring Lottery
15 Mar 2010

MyAnimeShelf Spring lottery has started!

Are you happy? Hope so. A chance to get an additional figurine for free just cant be bad, huh?

The rules are pretty much the same, though the cost of tickets was reduced:
1 ticket = 40 SP
1 ticket = 15 RP

Main prize this time: Nakano Azusa Nendoroid.
There also will be consolation prizes and again — their amount will depend on the number of the participants.

Good luck to everyone!

!!! Winter Lottery results !!!
15 Mar 2010

Mina-san,
I am ready to announce the results of the Winter Lottery!

To prove that the winners were chosen by random we shot a small film of the drawing. It’s crappy crap home-made video, but it’s the only evidence we managed to think out. So, you have a choice of two: you can either enjoy the dodgy show or simply open the spoiler below.

I should remind you that MyAnimeShelf lottery works like an ordinary one which means it is all about luck. One person can buy 2 tickets and win 2 prizes while the other will buy 10 and win nothing. Though the one with 10 tickets will probably feel more confident.

Download good quality video.

The Winners

For those who haven’t won a thing, I’m really sorry. I love you all and would provide prizes for everyone if I had enough resources.

The good news is that we’re starting our next event. Good luck to everyone!

That means 1 ticket gives you 3.7% chance to win Teni, the main prize.

The results will be announced on Sunday.

I don’t know the winner yet. Sorry for making you wait again, some preparations still need to be done. The good news is that the second event is being prepared for you as well.

Stay tuned!

Bug fix
08 Mar 2010

Mina-san, here is a list of changes applied today (mostly bug fixes):

  • Search bug in the figures database was fixed (the one, when you were unable to find a figurine by character’s surname).
  • Spoiler bug was fixed: spoilers contents won’t pop out on the front page anymore.
  • The annoying line was removed from comments panel on blog pages.
  • Links now will be automatically identified as links by our «AI»; link format should be like this: http://myanimeshelf.com
  • Features field which you fill in while adding and editing figurines now includes [bb] editor. This will enable you to include links in your description if needed.

Thank you for your time!

Lottery ends soon!
05 Mar 2010

Hi to all, here are the details on the end of our Winter Lottery.

The lottery will end on the 10th of March at 23 p.m. (Moscow time). That means you won’t be able to buy lottery tickets with SP (shelf points) anymore. At the same time you will receive your bonus-tickets: 1 ticket per every 20 RP (rating points).

Check what time will be at your place.

You are welcome to collect SP and RP up to the last minute. The only exceptions are services which need premoderation. Well, it’s OK to add figurines and edit stuff up to the 8th of March, 23 p.m. (Moscow time). I will try to process this data before the 10th of March. But the figurines which will be provided after this date will be added to the base only after the end of the lottery.

The results of the lottery will be announced within a day or two after it ends.

Awww… Do you want me to give you an advice? Well… I can suggest you checking if you have enough points to get the whole number of tickets. In other words, if you now have 15 RP — what are you waiting for? Go and turn it into 20!

Russian FAQ
05 Mar 2010

Russian FAQ was added to help our newcomers to understand the nuances of the project.
English FAQ is going to be next. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
