Yes, I know it's Monday. Why you gotta be like that, guys? But seriously, I was trying to think of a topic for Valentine's Day. There were obvious ones, like talking about various romantic topics present in anime, but I decided to be creative. Because that's what we do here on Ani-TAY. So instead, let's play nice! Basically, I'm suggesting that we all say nice things to each other, along these lines:
To Rockmandash12: Thank you for getting me into Ani-TAY! I originally was just a lurker, but then when you reviewed Mekakucity Actors, I decided to comment, slightly reluctantly because I was afraid of the classic online anime bashing arguments. You encouraged me to participate in the community, and here I am, almost a year later!
To Dexomega: Thank you for all your hard work making Ani-TAY! Truly, this community wouldn't exist without you (at least not in this capacity). All of your work to moderate and tame this wild landscape has created an awesome community for all of us writers and readers to participate in.
To mdubs: Thank you for your awesome enthusiasm with pretty much everything. My increased amount of articles this past couple months has mostly been due to your enthusiasm rubbing off on me. I really enjoy your excellent taste in music, and appreciate your encouragement with some of my test articles (such as Ani-TAY Interview) that I may not have written otherwise.
I would do more, but I want to see everyone else's. Feel free to thank the same people I did, the more the merrier. Happy (late) Valentine's Day, everyone!

A Week of Ani-TAY
Kevin and I have decided to move the roundup of weekly articles to a separate place, check out the Ani-TAY Drop for this week.
Want in on the Ani-TAY action? All you need to do is follow this tutorial and tag your article with Ani-TAY in addition to the other tags you see fit. Also remember that the Café has a selection of image assets for your Ani-TAY writing needs and spreadsheets for coordinating with your fellow Ani-TAY writers.
Looking to get involved in some collaboration projects? We currently have some openings for future iterations of Project Hydra, so if you're interested mark which shows you haven't seenhere and then sign up in blank spots here.
Get in touch with Dexomega or Fruity (vespire50) on Skype (or me of course, Protonstorm) so you can get added to the Ani-TAY group. Among other things, the Ani-TAY Podcast may just randomly pull from this group to participate in the After-Hours segments.
