    The "OMG!!!! They're actually making an update" Old Folks Home Newsletter for September 2007

    The Old Folks Home has decided to start up a monthly newsletter to update all FanForce members to what is happening in the most secretive location in the world, and no, we are not talking about my underwear drawer, ok. You are all invited to provide us with any feedback, thoughts, ideas and or dirty pictures of Wookiees.

    TRADMIC is the new CR for Pittsburg

    Welcome to FanForce!

    New Mangler! I mean, Manager!

    Mod Evaluation Discussion

    Discussion on whether to begin RSA evaluations has commenced. Pros and cons are being discussed as we speak. Ideas and feedback on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

    RSAs and Chapter Rep Elections

    The pantless troupe at the OFH is currently discussing the role of the RSA in CR elections and how much participation should the RSA have, including a vote in the process.

    FanForce F.A.Q.

    Jedi_Dajuan is currently working on updating the FanForce Frequently Asked Questions section. Any feedback and/or ideas would be welcome.


    The wonderful pair of RSAs from the great British Isles, halibut and Spike2002 have been working on revamping banners and other essentials in the region, including the regional website.

    Chapter Rep rules

    A reminder to all members that the new FanForce and Chapter Rep rules are now in effect. You may find the FanForce Rules [link=] by clicking here![/link]

    RSAs on leave

    The following RSAs will be away for the specified period. Remember, away RSAs set their colors to green. So if its green, don't come a'knocking!

    Gone to Dragon*Con (8/30-9/3)

    Inactive Chapters

    In a sad bit of news, the following FanForce chapters were moved to inactive and/or lost their official FanForce status. FanForces are welcome to revive these chapters, following the new chapter guidelines:

    Louisville, KY
    New Jersey
    Santa Cruz, CA
    Lafayette, LA
    Cleveland, OH

    Around FanForce

    The following was happening all around FanForce in the month of August:

    rhonderoo reports:

    "The Memphis Fan Force is celebrating their five year anniversary on September 8th with a picnic in the park that started it all."

    Miana Kenobi reports:

    "The Southern California fan forces joined up with the local 501st Garrison and Rebel Legion base for a multi-club BBQ in Orange County on Saturday August 25th. Good times were had by all."

    Obi Anne reports:

    "FanForce Romania is busy doing a fanfilm together and FF Sweden returned to their viking roots with some sailing."

    Wow! It's really great to see a OFH Newsletter, especially when so much happened. Well done! =D=

    But I'm sad to see that Finland got moved to the inactive forums. Hopefully some FFer come back to revive it soon. :D

    And... Congratulations to all new blue ones! Have a good time and many meetings! :D

    I came up with a question. Is this going to be posted as a article on It seems to me that might be another good vehicle to get the update noticed. Also, perhaps a scrolling header in the FF Community.

    No. :p

    Actually, it wouldn't hurt to post it up there. Good thinking.

    And Spike, I fixed a markup problem. [face_blush]

    Thanks. I'm retarded when it comes to markups in general.

    Posting in FF.N is a good idea actually.

    I thought this was a monthly newsletter? I subscribed and haven't seen a new issue. I demand a refund. :p

    Or at least a cookie.

    You're right. We really let it slide. I'll take it up and compose a new one in the next couple of days.

    I guess I really never get over here. :oops:
    I hadn't realized this was started.
    Maybe a quarterly newsletter would work out better? [face_whistling]
