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? Image 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? Image
This was just random brainstroming on the topic....

Hmmm what?s the meaning of a fanclub? so hard question XD
I think, the fanclub will have two goals,
- First, support the band : before ? 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 them? and I think that?s very important for a band? 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 ? in real life ? 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 but? for me a fanclub is more concrete. You don?t suscribe to a fanclub like you suscribe to a forum or put ? join the community ? on LJ or Facebook. Being in a fanclub means being really involved.

About the website, we won?t create a forum, as you said I don?t see the meaning of it. Moreover, even if Ben, Wa? 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 don?t go to international forum, because they are scared with english and can?t 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 can?t 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 you?re 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, I?m sure we can do something great and useful for everybody. It will take time maybe, but I don?t think it will steal our energy away from here ?cause we have lots of energy for what we like, isn?t it ? ^^

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

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... Image 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 Image Image

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.

I really like the idea! Image If you need any help with the German section of the fanclub (when the time comes that there will be such a section) - let me know! Image

@Aliafne: I don't think a fanclub in addition to the official site and the forum will be 'splitting powers' since all three will surely work together closely. Two forums would be not a good idea, but Nym said there won't be a forum so I don't think there's a problem. I like the idea to use the fanclub to organize the fans to do promotion for the band for example. Also a fanclub site would be surley very interactive and also a great addition to the official site who is mainly there for, well, the official information. Of course all this can be done on a forum, but I think it will work much better through the fanclub website. Not everyone wants to participate in a forum where you have to be every day to stay up to date. Image

Don't worry so much Image - I'm sure all three 'powers' will work together in a great way! I think it's awesome that Nymeria and the others want to try this. Image

Thx to all of you Image

I understand very well your questions and hesitations, especially because, as I said in the first post of this topic, this forum, as it is right now, really looks like a fanclub so it could seem useless to do one... but I think it's also important to prepare the future. This forum, we all hope for it, won't stay the same, and in next months we will be hundred and then thousand of members. I think the fanclub will be very useful then to organize activities (as WTI said streat team, meetings...) The fanclub will be here to relay the band for this and help to increase the fanbase.

In my opinion, all of you, the ones who are on this forum from the beginning, will take a very important part in this, especially because we are all over the world like "little bases" which work together for the band XD so as you can see I really want to include all of you. I think we will find the good way to get organized on the job, that's why it's important to start now Image

About the website again, for now we don't have one, but, as Xandra said, you can be sure that it won't be something competing with the official website and forum. Both will work together. The fanclub website will be made with this idea, for fans who want to be really involved ^^

It definitely won't compete with the official site/forum... it will be like the fanclubs for other bands e.g. The French Crusade/Fantom Agony for Epica, The Silent Force for Within Temptation etc.

It'll be a great support site which will have special priorities for members Image

Like I said before, I'd really like to help out if you guys need anything Image

There's another point 'pro fanclub': It is independent from the official website and therefore out of reach of my insatiable hunger for power and control Image .

No, jokes aside: A good fan club is a bit like the free press. It is definitely not under the influence of the band, management or other interest groups. I myself would like it to get inspirations and ideas from a Sons Of Seasons- community which is independent.
