MaiOtaku is proud to let you know that over 5,000 people have signed up for the website, and thousands have filled out their profiles including pictures and their information. We're very happy to be helping Otaku meet other Otaku.
MaiOtaku, in cooperation with QC Anime-zing. are bringing you a winter anime convention in Iowa on valentine's weekend. You can learn more, register, and get information about the convention's events online at http://www.
MaiOtaku users are encouraged to take our official MaiOtaku survey to help us improve MaiOtaku. When we know what you like or don't like then we know what we should concentrated on improving and make better.
We're really excited to announce our latest feature: an anime and manga database. This database will allow our users to keep track of anime watched and manga read, giving us even more information to use for matching.
We held our first ever Speed Dating event at Bishie Con this weekend. Over thirty people came, each having the chance to be paired with eight other Otaku that they might be interested in. Overall, the event was a smashing success.
Just so you know, we are currently very hot. Like you haven't notice, ^_^. There's currently an average of 200 'unique visits' daily. Roughly half, maybe a little less, are current users (because they typed maiotaku.
We've been tabulating the results of our recent user survey, along with feedback from our forums and other areas of the website. This, in addition to our priority to-do list, is what I hope to continue working on for a little while.
We've created a tour page, showing off the many features of MaiOtaku. It's kind of fun to see them all on one page: personality matching, profiles, comments, private messages, convention matching, distance matching, photos and photo galleries.
Just a small note, there were 34 users created between yesterday and this morning (4am). Thanks to all who joined, I expect some of our current members will be welcoming you to the community already :).
Big updates. Now your matches are sorted with very exact distance calculations in mind. Your new matches are a mix of the OtakuMatch score, which is based on your matching question answers, and their distance.
