Welcome! It is time for the super important Anime Planet improving TACO: The Anime-Planet Contributors Organization! You are very welcome to join in on the fun of bettering our beloved Anime-Planet by competing against each other over who can contribute the most! Just post all your contributions here in this thread and you will be included in our very special list and be awarded TACO points for all your hard work! Current points list: Updated list can be found here. How to claim contributions: When you participate around the site, you can be awarded TACO points! Members are given points based on the number of Recommendations, Reviews, Donations, and Custom lists . Just post your contributions down below. Contributions we accept and points awarded: - [5 Points] For each recommendation for the site. If you recommend a one way recs (Naruto to Bleach or Naruto ---> Bleach), that's 5 points; however if you recommend both ways (Naruto to Bleach and Bleach to Naruto or Naruto <---> Bleach) the award is 10 points. - [10 Points] Double your points by submitting recs for current season anime! Be sure to tell me that the recs are for airing shows. (One way recs: 10 pts; Two way recs: 20pts) - [10 Points] For each custom list you make. Rules for custom lists: Spoiler: RULES Custom lists must be created with the community in mind to qualify for TACO, including a specific, descriptive title with key words "anime" or "manga" in it (such as "Best Sci Fi Anime of 2015", "Worst Anime to Show Your Parents", etc). The custom list must have a description (tell us what the list is about). Each anime/manga entry on the list needs at least one sentence to describe why it's on the list. - [10 Points] Short User Review for Anime/Manga - [25 Points] Long User Reviews for Anime/Manga. Rules for User Reviews! Spoiler: RULES Add a user review for any manga or anime. Like with any user review, you need to be FINISHED with the series (and/or have seen it in the first place, haha); IE, if you've dropped it and are totally done a review is good then. if you're permanently stalled for awhile that's ok. fully watched/read is ok. reviews for currently airing are fine too assuming a decent amount is out and/or you finish it off later if needed once you're done. - [50 Points/US Dollar] Donations made to Anime-Planet. Clubs/Games - [75 Points] for participating in the club event for: Monthly Marathon (MM) Find Your Anime Buddy (FYAB) Anime Lottery Game (ALG) - [50 Points] for participating in the club event for: Daily Anime Marathon Club (DAMC) Daily Manga Marathon Club (DMMC) DAMN, That Anime is Bad (DTAB) Rules for Bonus Points! Spoiler: RULES clearly label your contributions as a club event (MM, FYAB, DTAB, etc. Do this in the post in TACO thread not in your review/rec) you need to make at least 5 recommendations or write a reasonable length (several paragraphs) review (choose whichever you prefer) for the series that are a part of the event at that time. reviews/recommendations must be made within 3 days of the end of the event you must be at least somewhat active/present during the club events provide a link to the event/thread to confirm eligibility BUT if you didn't participate in the event (because you had already seen the titles, etc), if you hadn't made recommendations already for that series you can add them in the same time frame to get the points. *note: if you delete and re-add recommendations you'll be disqualified and Sothis wont be happy ;) as always, please only make recommendations for SOLID pairings. Don't add bad recs just because you want the points, as that wastes valuable time (for Sothis, who has to struggle with deciding to flag something or not) Want to spend your TACO points? Here's how! Don’t forget! You can choose only ONE person to spend your hard-earned TACO points on so choose wisely. All you have to do is check what the user of your choice has agreed to do for your points below in this post, request what you want the user of your choice to do in the thread and enjoy the fruit of your labor! You can use @typeinusername function or message the user directly to draw their attention to the TACO thread. Use the thread for arrangements and letting us in on the progress. We are a curious bunch. Special disclaimer from our best lad Thrawn: So use the opportunity to overwork him to the fullest! How to spend your points!
