Congratulations to PunkJr! You are the new City Rep for the Seattle FanForce Chapter! I know you will do a fantastic job! Here is some generic info about what is required of a City Rep. I will be the RSA for WA state effective sometime this next week. ********************** Congratulations! Here's what you need to know as far as becoming a City Rep: Change your colors to the official City Rep colors (blue on transparent). This can be done through the new "Admin" link at the top of each page. Bold and/or italics are okay, underlines/overlines/strikethroughs are not. Contact one of the FanForce Managers to receive a custom title, if you don't already have one. Visit the FanForce City Reps forum -- I also recommend saving it to your favorites list. Send the following information to your RSA: Chapter, Chapter Name, City Rep, City Rep Email, Website URL (if available), Forum URL. The rest is something I copy-pasted from an advice thread I posted in the CR forum: A few tips I have: Start a mailing list. Yahoo Groups is good for that sort of thing. Look at what other chapters have done as far as activities, and see which are the more successful activities. Use those ideas, or adapt them to your own area. Look ahead in the calendar. There may be an upcoming movie, convention, concert, etc. that would require planning ahead. Keep in mind that not all activities have to be SW-related. A canoe trip is just as good (if not better) an activity as simply watching a SW video, as far as getting to know people in your area. Don't forget to ask your RSA for advice and to keep him/her updated on what is going on in your forum. Advertise. Ask your RSA to post meeting notices on the FFN Main Page. Also, printing up a few flyers and leaving a stack in sollecting/comic book/movie rental stores can get people that wouldn't have known about the boards. Have fun in your forum. This is a Golden Rule. What are some of the "perks" about becoming official? Contact a Global Support Admin for any of the following: You can customize your forum's board colors and banner. You can have a custom icon for your FanForce chapter uploaded. You can provide links to your group's website on both the regional listing and at the top of each page (replaces the "TFN FanForce" link currently at the top) Extended edit time for your forums. You can change it from the default 90-minute edit time to three hours, 24 hours, or even unlimited time. Automatic pruning of the topics in your forum is disabled. Is your FF club having a meeting? Would you like it on the FanForce webpage? This info should be submitted by the CR for the chapter to his/her RSA. Please send the RSA the information that you would like posted. Be sure to include: Name of group or at least city When: date AND time Where: street address, and directions if needed. Don't give out the street address for in-home gatherings -- just an email contact.
