    Hello, I cut and pasted from the FF FAQs:

    The following is a list of pre-requisists in order for your city group to be recognized as an official T FN FanForce:

    1) Get to know everyone posting in the forums for your respective cities. If your city is currently not on the forums, start it up! Maintaining a strong presence on the forums is vital!

    2) Start planning group activities and meeting with each other! Communities are not built over the internet alone!

    3) [IMPORTANT] Your city group must plan and execute three events or activities and have advance notice of each posted on the FanForce Headlines/Main page. We want you guys to build grassroots, self-contained clubs that actually do more than just chat on the forums all the time! Network with your fellow fans! Without the completion of this particular guideline, consideration cannot be given.*

    4) Choose one individual to represent your organization to FanForce. This person will work directly with a FanForce Regional Support Administrator (that's Bobafemme for you) to help you plan out activities, interface with charities, gather sponsors (if and when necessary) and address all issues and concerns regarding FanForce and TheForce.Net in general

    5) A local FanForce can be run anyway the fans of that city wish it to be run. All we ask is that you use our TFN FanForce City Forums as your online meeting place! .

    *Special consideration can be given to city groups and clubs that have demonstrated a sustained membership and record of activity. Some will question why we have these stipulations to gaining FanForce status. the answer is simple. We dont want FanForce cities that do nothing but talk to each other on the forums. FanForce is much more dynamic than that. We want to hear about what you're doing -- whether it's Star Wars related or not. Star Wars is what brought us all together, but our community involvement with one another is the glue that will keep us that way
