    Hullo all! :D

    I think it's time this board got a new lease of life :) and it's upto us fans in Asia and Africa to give it that boost! ;)

    So how about it? This is the official planning thread where ideas for thread topics, discussion threads etc are welcome. But let's keep it clean people. ;) Everything here must still comply with the TOS and standards maintained on the boards! :)

    So far I would like to suggest a social thread, movie discussion threads and the usual SW discussion of course!

    I'd love to see what everyone has to say! So, get posting in this thread! ;)

    It will be great to get this place going again! :cool:

    great idea humaira! :D ;)

    personally, i'd like to see a getting to know you thread in here, so we can, uh, get to know each other. ;)

    i think it's important to get everyone we can think of over here and put in their two cents. we'll never get anywhere if it's just the same 5 people posting all the time.

    Well, I'm on it as we speak grim! I'm posting in FF Communications tonight-hopefully! ;)

    Let's see how it goes.

    Oh, and I agree...the more the merrier! :D

    //Edit//- A Getting to know you thread?

    Definitely a thread to have here... :cool:

    Excellent idea, this thread! :D

    Yep ... a GTKY thread would be fun, if we can get enough people. :D There's 3 of us now.

    By the way ... is this place still yellow for you people? My browser could be glitchy, but I still get the old banner ... and my eyes already hurt. :(

    Xan! :D Great to have you here girl!

    *Hugs*

    Uh oh, Blaine is gonna turn this place into a hugging thread! [face_laugh]

    Oh and yeah...the banner is still yellow Xan! :( We are the forgotten boards! :_| 8-}

    Hmm, what can we do? Perhaps get in touch with a banner artist or a mod? :confused:

    If you guys want me to change it to the default Fanforce banner, I can do that. :)

    *Bangs imaginary gavel on desk* 8-}

    Calling this meeting to order! ;)

    Okay, people...here's what we've got so far:-

    1. Shara can change the banner (currently that painful yellow ;)) to the default green banner. :cool:

    2. We need a nice name for our social thread/ GTKY thread. So how about it? Let's have some names shall we?

    There are "welcome parties" and "social parties" etc on the boards...a nice name that will fit nicely with the whole Asia/Africa atmosphere would be ideal...

    *Looks around*

    Feel free to barge into this discussion anytime! ;)

    how about "calling all asia/africa ffers - the official social thread" or "get to know your fellow asia/africa ffers".

    Hmm, Grimby...Won't that be kinda long? :confused:

    We could shorten it, I guess...but it get's the point across Grim, yep! :D

    If we want a GTKY thread, we could just call it "The GTKY Thread - Asia/Aftica Edition". Ok, so I copied MR Neck for that one ... it's a good title :p.

    But something like "FF Asia/Africa Social Thread - Calling All Fans!" would work too.


    Oh yeah, isn't the default FF color scheme blue? I think you might've mixed up the default FF and JC schemes ... though the green one is good too. :)

    [face_laugh] No you didn't Xan! :D

    In fact, I think we'll use parts of both your and Grimby's suggestions for the title of the GTKY thread.

    Something like "The Social Thread-Asia/Africa Edition: All are welcome!" :)

    That sounds good :D. Should we just create it now, or should we try to attract people here first?

    Oh yeah, maybe one of us should PM our RSA ... I don't like yellow. :(

    Well Xan, I guess we can do both. I mean, start small, Y'know? It's okay if the few of us meet up and chat, but it would be great to see the rest of the gang wouldn't it? :)

    The banner..yeah. I'll PM Shara today. I like the default green banner. So soothing. ;)

    Darth_Eagle, your contributions will be more than welcome here. :D

    I would like to welcome you, on behalf of all of us, to the planning thread! :D And I'll probably post our social thread soon.

    Great to have you aboard! :cool:

    Any ideas, suggestions? :confused: Get posting girl! :)

    YAY! We have 4 people now! :D :p

    Actually, Eagle, I gotta question for you: the official minimum amount for a FF is 3, but how many do you really need to have a good FF?

    Well, here's the good news people! Our social thread is now on the boards...

    Of course if you name is Xan or Grimby then you will already know this! 8-} Why? Coz I PM'd the above mentioned names! ;)

    You killed the thread. :p

    *Kicks thread back to life* ;)

    Hmm, about how many FFers I dunno Xan...we can look around. But the post in FF Communications didn't attract people. Maybe they don't check there. :( I met one Sri Lankan on the boards. :cool: I'll PM and invite this user to join us. :)

    Okay..and idea...threads for movies...Should we have:-

    1. A thread dedicated to each movie (upcoming, already seen, general discussion blah blah)

    or

    2. Only one general discussion thread for films? Or perhaps a category of films?

    I realise that we are a small FF, but we can still talk about stuff. Whatcha say people? :D

    Xan, I know you'll agree with me on one of those movie franchises! ;) [face_laugh]



    Okay guys, the floor is open...let's discuss... :D

    Hmmm, for a start, I think we can do 1 thread to 1 movie; where we chuck everything to do with the movie in it. From reviews to fandom to collecting to speculation to fan outing photos etc etc. ;)

    In answer to how many FF there are, there are officially only 6 with 1 active here and 2 active outside (they have another board or ML where they can type in their mother tongues).
