As you may or may not know, Anime-Planet is run by me and one other person (who generally is too busy in the recent years to have time to do so) - I'm pleased to announce that Xesxen has just volunteered his time to help write code for the redesign and some other projects!
Feel free to drop him a note in his profile
or here - here's a note in his own words:
Hi everyone. I'm Xesxen, and as of today, I'll be one of the new developers for Anime-Planet. I hope that you'll all welcome me.
