SITE UPDATE: HIT CTRL – F5 TO GET FRESH CODE FROM THE SERVER!
THIS FIXES MOST ISSUES!
As you are all too well aware AnimeTip has been undergoing a crazy maintenance cycle the last few weeks. To be honest, there were many issues that the site was having that I just didn’t have time to fix. To the haters… I work a lot and I’m a dad before anything else. In spite of that I have managed to keep the episodes updated every day even when I should have been sleeping instead. Nuff said. You get the idea. If you don’t like it, hate elsewhere. I don’t have time for ya.
Now that I’ve got that off my chest, there are a few things I’d like to update the animetip community on. In my last post I let you all know about a few important issues I was trying to address. Here are those issues as well as where we stand with them:
* Jump menu auto population with all series – Currently we are only showing a static list. In the next few days it will automatically update whenever there is a new series is added.
Complete - We rolled this fix out last night! Let me know if you notice series that are not showing up in the Jump to menu but do appear inside of the anime series list (http://www.animetip.com/watch-anime).
* Long series (Bleach, One Piece, Naruto, Case Closed, etc…) and the Anime Movies Page aren’t showing category content correctly. This will also be fixed in the next few days.
Complete - I posted this fix last night also. It was a pain in the a$$ to figure out the root cause, but after many many many hours, its done. Please let me know if you go to any pages that don’t list all of the episodes for a series and the right column of the site is missing!
* Login Registration – Yeah, it hasn’t worked for a long while, but we’re fixing this too.
Complete - Yep. This was fixed also. You can now register to your hears content, login, use your watchlist / playlist, etc. If you can’t do this (can you guess my response here?) let me know.
* Videos Pausing part way through on Firefox Browser – We know this is an issue. We are implementing a fix, but this one may take a bit of time to nail 100%. You should know that Chrome doesn’t have this issue :).
Pending - I have identified the root cause of this issue. It appears to be the way we handle the embed code between the host server and our site. I’m trying to fix this issue, but it may involve a rewrite of a pretty involved part of the site. I’ve already started writing that code but Its going to be a long process. Once again, CHROME and IE do not have this issue…
Well, I’m glad you asked…
* I’m adding a new feature to automate the posting of most anime series directly from the publishers. I should have it done in the next week or two. When this goes live we will update automatically every 2 hours with all new content. (That’s why I doubled the RAM and CPU of the server)
* We are getting images up on the site for every Anime Series that will be used a few ways. There will be a nice large image on the page which lists all the episodes in a series (the category or series page), it will be used to add a new image based updated series list so instead of seeing just the anime series episode title, you will see a thumbnail of the image as well. Finally, it will be used in the watchlist / playlist areas so that you can see exactly what episodes are next on your list to watch!
* Watchlist / Playlist functionality is being re-written. I’m setting it up to automatically update your list as a subscription based service. You can subscribe to your own list as an RSS feed. If you add something to your watchlist, and then choose to add it to your playlist you will be updated by e-mail (if you choose to) that a new episode has been posted for the series you are watching. Once its in your playlist it will automatically update the watchlist once you’ve completed the episode. Nifty, eh?
* I’ll be removing the right column at some point to make more room for watch the anime episodes and to allow for the thumbnail anime update list to display correctly in the center column of the site.
Well that’s it for now. I’m going to go get a nap in. Man, I’m beat.
Thank you as always for being a part of our community. If you’d like to volunteer to help with anything, please contact me (otakusource). I can always use the assistance in reviews, editorials, news posts, adding anime until the tool is done, fixing existing series, back end, front end, etc.
Until next time,

From the Sony Blog: "The collection doesn’t stop with the original, however. It also includes the 3D remake of Chain of Memories, aptly titled Re: Chain of Memories, which takes place between Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II. This game replaces the menu-based action battles of the original with an addictive, collectible card system.
As a bonus, Kingdom Hearts HD also comes equipped with HD remastered versions of the cinematics from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Please note that this is
