Non-English Discussion

While ISML is officially run and managed in English, we give our best effort to make voting and other site features accessible to non-English visitors. Our resources are unfortunately limited, so we are very grateful to discover communities around the world that are independently helping to share ISML in additonal languages.


Community Blogs

We are happy to list blogs and journals that chronicle ISML events. All languages are welcome.

We invite anyone in the community to create videos for ISML and submit them for consideration.

In Memoriam

Hosting System Administrator, Programmer, Technical Consultant, Honorary Staff
mokuhazushi ("Moku") was responsible for upgrading ISML's servers toward the end of the 2008 season, increasing our ability to meet rising traffic demands and enhance everybody's browsing experience. He donated the funds needed to maintain the site for an entire year and provided excellent programming to keep our voting polls open, on time, and running smoothly. Moku passed away in August 2009 after a long battle with colon cancer, and we miss him dearly. Since that day, the Staff have continued to support ISML and strive for its success in his memory.

Contact the Staff by emailing [email protected]. We welcome your comments, questions, and/or concerns.

Donations to ISML

ISML began as a personal project funded by the current staff members, but our recent growth has begun to exceed our original budget. Participating in ISML will continue to be free of charge to you; however, we will graciously accept any gifts and offerings from our voting community if anyone wishes to contribute. All donations will pay for present and future server- and site-related expenses and upgrades.

If you can offer a contribution, please visit our donation page. Thank you so much!
