I've been wondering about this for a while, but what's up with all of the extra anime articles that have popped up recently?? I don't know if they're in any other sections, but recently (not quite sure when) it seems like suddenly every anime title out there has an article on CR, not just the series that have eps or series that used to be here until they were licensed, but a whole bunch of random stuff with descriptions that seem like they were hurriedly copy-and-pasted from Wikipedia or don't have anything to do with the series at all. None of them seem to have pics either.

For example, La Corda d'Oro's been licensed for a while, and suddenly a whole new article for a special ep that aired a while after the end of the series showed up. You could watch it with the rest of the show on CR before it got licensed. The description looks like it's the first section of the Wiki article for the list of La Corda's episodes, there's no video, and there's no pic.

So, what's the deal?? It's been much more difficult to get around the anime section since now you have to wade through mountains of articles with no eps uploaded. I'm not making a complaint or anything like that, just curious.

(I'm pretty sure there aren't any threads like this, but if there are please lock it. Also, I don't know if this belongs in the general section, but move it if it does.)

Edit: In case there's been a misunderstanding, I mean shinji (or maybe the mods, don't know if they have that kind of influence) had to have been the ones to put those up. Regular users like us can't just press a button, enter some series info, and voila! CR series article. And it seems to me that it used to be that new series articles were only created when someone uploaded the first ep of the series and it was approved. I'm running on things I've seen and assumptions I'm making, so sorry if I have the facts a bit skewed.

Edit #2: Please don't just post "I don't know." Don't say anything unless you feel you can give a valid reason. I get the feeling "boredom" isn't the answer either, but that's just me. I guess it's like cleaning your room or whatever when you get bored, except instead of getting out the Haz-Mat suits, preparing some radioactive waste containers, and turning on the music full blast, they're just adding (as yet) unlicensed animes to the list. Trying to avoid falling into the portal to Hell in the closet long enough to find a vacuum cleaner and an oxygen mask sounds more fun, though....

Maybe it has something to do with the whole legality thing and these are series that are going to be uploaded after the 8th?? I hope so, even though things do seem to be a bit cluttered now.

My best guess to this would be boredom.

My guess is that they are fishing for someone who have interest as they are and buddy them if they like that person.

i can give 10 answers on that
according to my conclusion(wow), all this random articles and crap are made because of
1.they fill their sexual desires by making some thread
2.boredom
3.and because of boredom they don't finish what they started
