PostSubject: Fanclub for SoS   Sun Sep 14, 2008 9:06 pm

Hello !

I open this topic to talk about the Fanclub.

Every great band has a Fanclub and it seems that this Forum, with all of us, is like an informal fanclub. So I thought : Why donít we create a real Fanclub to support the band and then help him with promotional stuffs ?

So, what do you think about this, and who wants to take part and create it ?

If we succeed (I have to confess that itís the first time I think of doing this kind of things Embarassed ) it would be, as this forum, an international fanclub, and I think it would be great to have people from different countries to organize it.

So if you are interested, maybe you could send me a PM or give your opinion and ideas on this topic.

Thx ^^

I think it would be a great idea, although with fanclubs they usually start with a large fanbase, and include packages (t-shirts, access to special sections of websites, etc.)

Maybe for the moment this could be a bit like the VIP section Oliver was talking about in the 'your ideas' topic in the news section?

I would love to help with promotion though. Street teams are awesome!

Of course, for the moment it's just the beginning ^^ We will start slowly in order to make something good 'cause after the album release there will be lots of fans XD (Have to create an association and have a legal status, to find 2 or 3 persons to organize it, etc.)

Meanwhile, there are lots of things we can do, and Streat teams indeed sound very useful AND funny XD

Indeed, it needs to grow and be ready for when SoS are 'out there' :P

I would really like to be a part of the fanclub when there is one. Very Happy

I can't believe I just opened a facebook account, so I could join. *headdesk* Suspect

I hope I don't look like a copycat now, but your idea resulted in me wanting to create a community on LiveJournal. Rolling Eyes rendeer

LiveJournal is not always the best place for music related stuff, but I wanted to give it a try anyway. Smile

Here is the link: http://community.livejournal.com/sonsofseasons/

If anyone of you is at LiveJournal, it would be cool if you could join there too.

hey Xandra, just seen the livejournal ! That's a good idea and it's much more beautiful than facebook ! Unfortunately, on facebook, we can't do lots of things except post pictures and videos and add some news ^^"
BTW when I saw the icon with Oliver, I thought it would be great to have one for each member ^^ so if you have time... XD

Well, that's what's mostly done on LiveJournal too. Only the layout is prettier. At least it can be prettier. So far I have only a standard layout, but I will try to work on a header in the near future. Smile

Heh, why not? Smile I'll give it a try. Smile Just give me a couple of days, time is something I don't really have lately. Suspect

lol! everybody will have an account everywhere ! I will joined too XD

So for the Fanclub, I'm thinking of creating a website XD I'm not really talented with computing stuffs but i'm working on it (and have a friend that maybe will be able to help me).
After taking some advice, i think it would be better to create an association to have a legal status. I will soon do what is needed for it ^^
and... that's all ^^

It's very important to found a fanclub with an official status, especially later if you want to organize non free subscribtion. I'll ask more about that to the staff of TFC (french epica fan club) asap.

Official status is quite easy to set down. If you know exactly what to put on, you can do it in one or two weeks. Wink

But, you've to decide how organizing the FanClub and the website... There's many differences from one FanClub to another... Maybe have a look on different websites and see how they're organized. Then, you can choice how to organize the SOS One. Very Happy

Hey Nym,

For the internal message traffic you should maybe use eMail and include me so I can support you wherever possible. Don't know if the forum is the right place for details.

Just out of pure curiousity how will be the fanclub different? I mean we have all these online spaces and journals, and facebooks and this forum... Imo for example another forum would be a waste, but thats imo. Or what else could another webpage offer? scratch I mean would there be the news repeated from here... or what is the concept of the fanclub? And how can nonfrench ppl help in? Wouldnt it steal our energies away from here? scratch
This was just random brainstroming on the topic....

Hmmm whatís the meaning of a fanclubÖ so hard question XD
I think, the fanclub will have two goals,
- First, support the band : before Ė during and after album releases and of course concert or tour. Which means work with the band for promotion, be physically here during the concert to cheer themÖ and I think thatís very important for a bandÖ especially when they makes their debut.

- Second, bring together all fans. I think a Fanclub, better than a forum, can give the feeling to belong to a community. I really hope we will be able to organize meeting between fans, to share ę in real life Ľ our enthusiasm. The fact that we are all over the world will complicate this, but the concert will be the occasion to meet together, and maybe we will find other chances to meet.

Of course, we can do this without a fanclub, organizing on this Forum butÖ for me a fanclub is more concrete. You donít suscribe to a fanclub like you suscribe to a forum or put ę join the community Ľ on LJ or Facebook. Being in a fanclub means being really involved.

About the website, we wonít create a forum, as you said I donít see the meaning of it. Moreover, even if Ben, WaŽ and me are frenchies, we want to create an international Fanclub, so the website will be in english first, and then french and german, and why not spanish, italian, hungarian, if we find people who want to participate. I know that lots of people donít go to international forum, because they are scared with english and canít understand it. The fanclub will be also there for these fans, to give them another way to stay informed.
The website will also have a place for the fanclub members only, and I hope we will have exclusive material for you, so not only news you can see here and there but something else. I canít tell you now what it will be but exclusive interviews, contests, or maybe official meetings would be great...
Of course, all good will should be very pleasant, and even if youíre not french, you can take a big part in the fanclub. Precisely, the fact that we are all frenchies is a problem for me, and we need people in other countries to relay us.
So, Iím sure we can do something great and useful for everybody. It will take time maybe, but I donít think it will steal our energy away from here Ďcause we have lots of energy for what we like, isnít it ? ^^

(hmm I hope nobody fell asleep reading this long long post)

Nah now I start to understand better Smile But..still just a little... Embarassed

Shouldnt we already do this here? I mean going to webzines etc and everybody trying to support, advertise it in their way? I remember soem chats about it...

Arent the subparts (french, german, spanish etc) of a forum for this?

Isnt this planned for here too?

It feels a bit for me like spliting our powers to to many parts instead of having the supporting powers united... No I cant explai this really good... Maybe like putting huge efforts in building up different subcommunities instead of building a cummunity here... I mean I ahve nothing against communities and refering to what you wrote at the end.: I am so totally into community building and if you need help in something I can help too! And yes SoS deserves energy from us Smile Smile

I would really like to help out, even though I'm not sure what I can do... I could throw in a few ideas for packages and material, if/when that's needed.

I also think that maybe the street team could be linked to the fanclub, especially at concerts, so for example the fanclub could be responsible for getting flyers for SoS or whatever.
