Comic Vine in my opinion has been lacking a sense of community and the "Community Spotlight" and "Community Showcase" used to bring members. As a moderator explained to me before, things had been harder and harder to run, giving them no choice but to drop Community Spotlight and Community showcase. Of course, I was discouraged big time and decided not to bother with it any further.
Well this was from two years back and recently, I felt like I should try to bring it back up again after Tony, the site's founder left. Some people felt like the site was dying. Considering we only have one staff member basically doing everything nowadays and I wasn't so surprised by their initial reaction. But for me though, this was the perfect opportunity to bring together users who are willing to write. So I made this blog and I surprisingly got more people to like the idea compared to the last time.
I want to give a short background on "The Community's finest". This is basically the new "Community Spotlight" which we'll be publishing fortnightly (my man, @major_hellstorm will be in charge of it) In fact, in a few seconds, you will be able to check out TCF's first issue.
"The Vine" on the other hand will publish a few articles per week. Reviews (comic books, movies and possibly episodes of comic book related series) Best Moments in Comics and Top 10 are the main topics we're going to be working on.
They will be written by the members of the Content Creators group. If you want to join, just PM me anytime and we'll discuss it.
Unfortunately, our articles will not be able to make it to the front page like how Community Showcase articles did. I really tried my best to have them up there but for now, our articles will be forum based only. Who knows though? Maybe in the future our articles will finally have a spot on the main page.
As for The Vine's publishing schedule, I will have to discuss it further with my peeps. I'll post it up as soon as possible.
That's it for now. Thanks a lot for reading! @major_hellstorm will be posting the first issue in a bit. :)
Stay classy peeps.
