PostSubject: Website - your ideas!   Tue May 27, 2008 10:48 am

Hey,


In these months before the release of the debut album the web site will undergo some changes, technically and graphically. Ideas and wishes from your side are more than welcome! One discussion point is if we should include a VIP section with special news, short videos, behind the scenes material or if we should present that material to everybody.

The VIP section sounds good, but it depends on who can access it. For example,who is it for? Is it for forum members? Do you have to pay for it (like a fanclub type thing)? When will it be up?

If you had to pay for it though, I'd personally keep it up for everyone to see until the debut album has been released, or the fanbase has grown a bit more.

Hey,

The VIP section would be for the early members of the forum - like you -, for people putting up fansites in different countries or being active for the band in others ways, and finally there might be a subscription paid yearly to access it. It would contain backstage and behind- the- scenes videos - for example from the recordings -, snippets from unreleased bonus songs or even whole songs yet unreleased. Further extended news, special artwork stuff and deeper informations about the band, the ideas and philosophy. The subscription fee would be of course not to make any money on, just to balance the costs out which all that bonus stuff definitely needs.

That's a good idea! Right now the only discussion is in the Introduce Yourself topic (although I opened a pub but no one has posted there yet Embarassed )

I was actually thinking on a chat connected somehow to the site, to keep it togather... I mean to keep the fans here.

mIRC is the chat client thingy...

Well, my band has a forum which is hosted by Forumotion (this forum is also hosted by it), and I think you can add a chat thing to these forums, but I haven't tried adding one to my forum.

Now I remember!!! I used it, lets see... about 4 years ago :P Old times. Now I am so used to chat on msn. I don't really use public chats anymore. Unless they are connected to a forum. But as I see we are keeping the forum busy.

I spend a lot of time in the Epica chat, and I've met someone because of it (her name is Kathy, and she's also on this forum). Sometimes forums are better than chats, but it depends on the amount of people who use it.

Do you mind if I add you on MSN?

Hi Oliver!

thank you for the blog, it's a great idea. Maybe you should post something about it on your official Myspace, to let the others know? the SoS space begins to be quite active now Smile

though i feel - we feel, i think - very honored and enthousiastic about this idea of a VIP section, i do think that at the beginning at least, it would be better if as much material as possible is released and can be seen by everybody. "special news, short videos, behind the scenes material" would be without any doubt very attractive and would make people more interested in your project.
Plus, it would keep the site active and lively - you know, sometimes people stumble upon a site, look for information and then see that 'oh, the debut album is not released yet!' so their interest drop down. So, the more various and recent material can be found, the better it is - IMO.
Of course, a VIP section can still be created for most private stuff...


PS: about the blog section, just a little detail: when you're on the blog page, there is no liink back to this home page as it's usually expected by somebody browsing the website content. There's only a link to the 'Official website', in the link section, which leads to the main home page, and opens a new tab (or window) - not very convenient. Just a matter of easier navigation... why not adding another button besides the "home" and "about" ones? Could be "SITE" "HOME" "ABOUT". Just a suggestion.

She's an administrator rather than a moderator scratch

I hope that didn't sound bad or anything.... just noting it.

I run a forum which is also on this server (http://veilsofdawn.forumotion.com), and you can make certain members moderators for different parts of the forums (as you can see on mine). Maybe that would work?

A lot of forums use it like that. There is an admin group, a moderating team... and maybe later when there are more than 30 or 50 active posting members on this forum it would make the moderators/admins job easier if they would look for different parts and topics on the forum. I was thinking too, that maybe it would be fun to make different member groups depending on how much they post or something. scratch

Ranks, reflecting the post count, are a good idea. I'll look into it.

Well, that's also a good idea, but not entirely what I was thinking. Maybe we could discuss it?
