We also added back a couple of old features that were not initially carried over: Sheet Music and Origami.<br />

On January 5, Vic Mignogna will appear on Otakast Network's weekly Monday night show, Ramen Radio. This is a great opportunity for any fans to ask questions regarding his character dubbing, music dubbing, etc. For those who don't know, Vic Mignogna plays several anime character dubbing roles, and is responsible for composing and even performing many English dubbed anime songs (such as the English version of Hikari E). He is most notable for producing and arranging music performed by such groups as DC Talk, Lisa Trammel, Awakened, and Rene McLauren. As far as anime goes, he is also notable for playing Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist, Ikkaku (Bald guy) in Bleach, Broly in Dragonball Z, and Dark Mousy in DN Angel. He's appeared in almost one hundred English dubbed anime titles. He also performed the English dubbed songs "Towards the Light (Originally Hikari E)," "A to Z," "We Are!" "Byakuya ~True Light~," "Brothers," and "Dan Dan Kokoro Hikareteku."<br />

With the release of the new version of Naruto Central comes a need for new motivated staff who want to help us grow. I've updated the "Staff Openings" page which can be found by clicking <a href="/?p=staff" title="Staff Openings">here</a>. If you are interested in any of the jobs, please contact me by email. I would like to note this is not a paid job, you will be working as a volunteer. Every staff will have set goals they need to accomplish by a certain time-frame. At most staff probably dedicate 2 hours a week into what they do so the workload is not bad at all.
Q: Why can't I log in to my old account?<br />
A: Chances are, your username has a space in it. We eliminated the use of spaces for usernames so when usernames were transferred over, those who have spaces' usernames automatically stopped working. We're trying to fix things by just removing the space in your username. If you are one of these users, then email me and we'll work on fixing it. We're currently having some problems editing members because one of administrative panels got messed up during the switch so there may be a slight weeks delay.<br />
Q: Why is my images always getting deleted or rejected?<br />
A: We check through all the images periodically to make sure all the images correctly fit the category that it is in. If it is not, then we delete it. When you submit an image, you must submit it into the correct category or it'll be rejected. Wallpapers have to be images of 800x600 or higher and must be standard wallpaper dimensions to be accepted. Hand Drawn art must be hand drawn art, if there is any computer editing to it, then it goes into Hand Drawn (Digitally Rendered). If its 100% computer made, then it is Digital Art. Cosplay is not you putting a Rasengan ball on your hand or turning your eyes into Sharingan eyes. Cosplay is dressing up as the actual person in the anime, so if its not that, then its not cosplay so it won't be accepted.<br />
Q: Why is my profile picture being rejected?<br />
A: Profile pictures are meant to be real pictures of yourself. If its not, it'll most likely be rejected. We obviously cannot determine if it is really you, but as long as its a real human being, we'll accept it. If you are uncomfortable showing your real self, you do not need to upload a profile picture. There is an AVATAR feature where you can upload anything, and those show up when you post comments and such.
