The menu bar now has entries for the “main pages” of each of the Contestants, Statistics, and Community portals. Since the start of the season you could have clicked on the category labels to get there, but I realize now that the drop-down menu had been misleading many site visitors.
So on the main Contestants page, you can view character biographies and career histories (by clicking on their avatars). These are available only for 2010 Contestants. All preliminary Competitors are listed, but they do not have bios. Bios for 2009 and 2008 Contestants are linked in their respective pages in the site archives. Those bios are no longer being maintained, but we may develop a more comprehensive and regulary updated database in the future.
The main Statistics page has the cumulative standings for all Rounds; just use the buttons and drop-down menu to navigate. There are also links to tournament information for Japan Anime Saimoe and Korea Best Moe. (Some pages are undergoing rewriting as I make this post; until now all the charts were images, but we are converting them to be text-and-HTML-based, so they load more quickly and also become searchable.)
The main Community page lists all the different branches of our community, which is primarily the forum at the moment. Our IRC chatroom has somewhat died over the course of the year; maybe it’ll revive again someday with the right people. There is also space for community video submissions as well.
Additionally, I’m updating the URLs to our archive sites. Older ISML websites will live in their own subdomain. So archive.internationalsaimoe.com/2008/ will now become 2008.internationalsaimoe.com. Your DNS may take a day or two to update fully, so some links might not work just yet. And if you have existing bookmarks, they should redirect correctly. If not, please update your bookmarks.
Sorry for the confusion, but I hope ISML can become a little more accessible to visitors with these changes.
