Recent press for imfdb
 
Hey guys, not sure if any of you noticed but we've been making the rounds in the blogosphere lately, we may get some new users - be kind. :D They all have good things to say as far as I can tell. :)

We're also making the rounds on twitter and facebook. It's interesting, for me at least, to see what the general public think of the site and what pages they find interesting.

They say even bad publicity is publicity, so that collection of twitter comments isn't all bad.
Apparently we "jumped the shark" at some point. Not sure how this is possible, because it's a wiki, but hey.

Well the writer of that apparently either doesn't like ANIME or he really doesn't like HELLSING, whichever is the case.

What really makes me NERVOUS is that now people are COUNTING on us to be correct, and we have tons and TONS of new or anonymous members making pretty elementary mistakes. And I'm not even talking about the idiots who vandalize pages intentionally. With that in mind, people have to be EXTRA VIGILANT that we're checking on and improving pages (and I don't mean pissing matches about how many pages you've fixed either)....

When people count on you (aka us at IMFDB) for accurate information, we have an obligation to do the best we can to be correct and accurate. And to admit it when we are NOT sure.

On an episode of Happy Days, the gang went to California and Fonzie entered some dumb contest involving water skiing a ramp over shark infested waters. The show went downhill after that and never recovered. When a show "jumps the shark" is when it starts an irreversible decline in quality.

TVTropes is a horrendous mish mash of fanboy circle jerking. They need to get some real editors and quality controllers in there to kick ass and clean things up. Really good idea in theory, but horrible, horrible execution. Imagine Wikipedia, but all the articles are their "...in pop culture" sections only. Bleh.
