Hallo and greetings, I am your maintainer, thesnowmelts. If you have any sort of problem please feel free to contact me of us via my journal, private message or email!
I have been so far unable to locate a community that shares anime episodes. I'm sure I could, of course, simply ask for episodes on music communities--but I'd rather be able to do it somewhere that's made for it.
So I made my own community. Anyone is welcome to join. The more the merrier. And the more people have--the more we share. Awwwww. Use whatever medium you want to upload. I usually use yousendit megaupload but if you like something else, hell--use it.
And you can share whatever you want, of course. The focus is episodes. But music, icons, and pictures are welcome too.
Only things I ask:
1. Don't be shitty to each other. People like different kinds of anime. Elitist crap gets on my nerves.
2. I don't care how many requests/uploads you do per day. But please attempt to not only request but to upload something every once in a while. Else all we'll have is requests and no uploads.
3. If you're going to promote--put it under a cut or not at all.
4. Any hentai or yaoi, yuri, loli, shota, or ecchi will also look splendid under a cut--just in case. Along with a warning--so if someone is downloading something just to try it out they are not given a heart attack. O.o
5. Please put tags on posts, so if anyone is looking for 'such-and-such-whatever', it may help them out.
6. Don't link to other communities if you have to join to get them. That's why people join this one. Links that go back to journals we can all access are okay--but if you have to join some separate community to get them, don't post it here. It's annoying.
Any posts/users that violate these rules--posts will be deleted or users may be banned without warning. So don't come whining to me.

Anime Music Videos.org - A webpage/community/forum dedicated to the production and worshipping of AMV--anime music videos--the only stipulation is that you must sign up and wait for two weeks before you can download.

http://www.freewebs.com/anime-packed/index.htm It's on hiatus and many sendspace links have expired so only the megaupload ones still work(umm, most of them). There's most of D.N.Angel, most of Yami to Hon no Tabbibito(what does that mean anyways?), mai-hime and a few other things.
http://fansub.tv/ I'm pretty sure that everyone knows of this already but heh, I couldn't just not post it. It contains mostly new stuff but sometimes I'm not too crazy about the quality and have to look for certain anime elsewhere. I've heard people complain about speed but this site has always been good to me so...
http://www.animeupload.com/index.php?categoryid=10 I've never gotten anything from here so I haven't looked around much but they seem to have a wide variety of things to choose from. I randomly looked at two series and they were both .rmvb and since I much prefer other ways I just stopped looking.

Concering Anything Else
Ctrl+Alt+Del - An online webcomic that began back in 2002, (I believe), and has a huge fanbase. This comic (as many online comics do) concentrate around two gamer guys. One, Ethan--is an accident prone psycho who is obsessed with his XBox robot, Zeke, that he built by accident. The other guy, Lucas, is obsessed with A Song of Fire and Ice series by George R. R. Martin and seems to exist to get Ethan out of trouble.
Megatokyo - A webcomic that appeared on the net a couple years ago. It centers around two gamers, Piro and Largo, who end up--by mishap--stuck in Japan. Piro spends a lot of time being sentimental and kind of pathetic. His partner in crime. Or, rather, his partner who does crime, is Largo. He is rather prone to insanity, blowing up buildings, consorting with ninjas, and getting ahold of out-of-control rent-a-zillas. Un/fortunatly, the comic took a more dramatic turn because one of the two writers quit. Leaving the writer who's based on Piro in control of it. Thus, it centers more around the drama of Piro's girl troubles than the hilarity that Largo used to carry. So the fans shifted a bit after the other partner left (who was based on Largo).
AdultFanfiction.net - The grown up version of Fanfiction.net. These stories--well, a lot of them (you've been warned!) feature sex. Sometimes blood and gore or stuff that's too mature for Fanfiction.net--but a vast majority feature sex. You must be 18 to enter.
DeviantArt - A webpage with a vast community for art. There are thousands of members who feature their works both great and small. It's ideal for anyone who likes to look at pretty pictures, like to looks for fanart, or wants a place to post art of their own.
The Sugar Quill - An incredible collection of Harry Potter fanfictions. There are catagories for the quality of these fictions so you don't have to wade through a lot of crap. You can usually find something at least decent when you go.
Final Fantasy IX page - An excellent Final Fantasy IX page. It has a detailed walkthrough with pictures to help you. And a list of all the side quests available.
