    I recall you saying on the podcast that you will reserve some informations for the podcast to help them grow or whatever.
    Ah, thank you for mentioning this. Actually what I meant by that was, there are certain things I hold back for the podcast, however, in the end EVERYTHING ends up either here or my site. Since they've given me a great opportunity to get information about my site and projects out, it's only fair I give them some exclusives as an incentive for listeners.

    However, this is my OP homebase and, unless I completely forget about something because I'm swamped with private stuff, I would never leave something on the podcast without posting it here soon afterwards so if you're looking for one place that will cover everything, chances are good that it's right here.

    However, without resorting to multiple threads, I think that's a nice way to let everyone know directly where info is.

    But for me? Having a twitter function to get out site updates is awesome.

    btw folks, I used italics to start my previous post. That's like, code, for sarcasm.

    While there is something to be said about it being a smaller club, where upon if you saw someone else wearing a t-shirt with characters on it, you'd instantly know you could be friends with them (as was the case with DBZ back when I was in highschool... I made many of my senior year friends on the very first day by wearing such a shirt)... not to mention, the more people that know about it, the more likely you are to have retards peeing in the pool.

    That aside, there's also a lot to be said about massive commercial success.

    Namely, tie in products. Like soundtracks, video games, stupid ass keychains and the like. And of course, the company putting the material out making enough profit to KEEP putting it out until the end of its run 10 years a messload of chapters/episodes from now.

    Also if they sell a bajillion copies of the dvds and manga, they can make them cheaper and more readily avaialble in places and air on tv and... stuff.

    The exclusive club is cool, but recognized success would also be nice. It'll probably never happen because OP has small eyes, giant grins, and psycadelic bright fruity colors and crazy bizarre looking villains, it just lacks the immediate visual appeal the american audience is looking for.

    But a more unified network? All for it.
    To support Viz hosting all Jump manga for FREE and day of release, Arlong Park will now support the official release.
    https://www.viz.com/shonenjump

    Official chapter discussions now start Sundays at Noon, EST.
    Please do not post threads when scan sites release their version, and just discuss those releases in the spoiler thread.

    Actually we do have a sarcasm tag. [/sarcasm]

    ...

    As far as the large/small fandom is concerned I don't really think it should have been brought up, because that is as controversial and issue as VIZ Media, 4Kids or FUNimation, which people like to dissect. I personally feel there is more persuasion toward the "small community" line of thinking but we should refrain from hot issues until this project gets underway. Then we can debate it to death.

    Selfish Greg: Small fandom is way more fun.

    Realistic Greg: Big fandom is probably better for those involved in making the series and for that reason I support it.

    Imagine if the average person knew about it, and actually suppoted its domestic release! Then I wouldn't be an elitist who samples only from illegal bootleg copies anymore, I would be a common shlub, and there is no joy in that!
    I hate admitting I'm an elitist. I hate being able to relate to half of something said so thick with sarcasm. However, I do not hate this Pirate Summon idea. I'm looking forward to this really cool way for One Piece fans to connect. That being said, is there any way I can help?

    And on my earlier note, I really don't care how popular something I like is. I really don't get why so many people here do, especially now that we are getting the speedup and the marvel of watching One Piece on television has as many negatives as positives. Do so many of you need something you like to be popular so you can reassure yourself that it is indeed worthwhile? Maybe you just want to see Oda get his dues, and I can understand that, but he's already got Japan for that. One Piece's fanbase is just big enough that everyone in the anime community knows about it but it's not held at arm's length in common conversation, as Naruto is.

    I hate how anime gets americanized when it gets too popular. I also hate the stupid obnoxious fans when things get too popular. I find the smaller niche animes have "normal" fans. I realize I'm being fussy, but that's just me. I'm not gonna stop liking OP. it just annoys me a little.

    I can definitely understand that, but ya know without a actual crowd the anime and manga would not continue because of the one ting that runs the world: Money.
    Happy 20th anniversary, One Piece anime!

    ... *cough*

    AP is... getting there.

    Since people were quiet about it, I thought people forgot about it. I've got to reshuffle my priorities to squeeze in attention for AP.

    It's just a bit delayed. Twilight Princess style, kind of. If I had a clone for each of my sites, hobby or job-related, everything could finish in a timely matter.

    It's up to the others if they want to show off the logo to the public though.

    If Jason wants to, I believe he has it. I'm still interested in getting this thing off the ground. I haven't seen you on Skype for some time though, and Jason's been unusually busy.

    The Pirate Summit is Jason's baby, and I'd say the aforementioned reason is why that hasn't been updated.

    well, does anything happen in the next time or is this project on ice?

    also iam curious why it stopped that on the main site updates or so are posted (last Update\info was in november 2009)


    does this mean you don`t care anymore for the mainsite arlongpark.net, because you don`t think anyone visits it anymore..so why even update it with
    for example: new spoiler is out..check it out here.

    It's still being worked on, slowly. The new site is being completely redone, we aren't just making changes to the existing site. Aside from that, I can't give you much information.

    We're working hard on it, the server is ready to go, but Cinder's still working on the crux of the design and we're still revising and creating content for it. We'll let you guys know when we have a more solid ETA, but things have been going slower than any of us really wanted it to. Sometimes that's just the way these kind of things work though.

    I understand this sentiment a lot.

    That's why I like wearing shirts where you have to know to know.

    Like this one.
