Greetings! My name is Linda, and I?m the Regional Support Administrator (RSA) for the Pacific Region of fanforce. The Pacific Region encompasses California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska, and Hawaii. You will be seeing me popping up on your boards from time to time. If I can be of any assistance with helping you start up an Official Chapter of Fan Force, let me know. To become official is quite easy: 1- You need at least 3 members who do not reside in the same household. 2- You need to have 3 meetings 3- All three meetings need to be advertised on the main page of fanforce in order to count towards you becomming official. You need to give me advance notice of the DATE of your meetings/events, the TIME of your meetings, the LOCATION including DIRECTIONS to the meeting, and a brief synopsis of what you plan to do at the meeting. Once you become official you will choose a City Rep (18 years or older) and choose a name for your chapter. The City Rep will be your representative to Fan Force, the person who will work with me to help your Fan Force Chapter grow. Just recently I went through the whole thing myself down here in San Diego. I am doing double duty at Fan Force as I am also the City Rep for The San Diego Star Wars Society. I can also help you deal with trolls on your board. I can ban, edit and change posts for you. If someone spams you, I can clean it up. If you think someone needs to receive an official warning, please let me know. I can also post news stories for you, and post your meetings on the main page at Fan Force. This will help your group get more exposure and get more people to come to your meetings and events How to contact me: The best way to reach me is to send me a PM here at fanforce For emergencies such as someone spamming your forum with porn, severely bad language, threats of violence, etc. the best thing to do would be to email email@example.com and JCfirstname.lastname@example.org. This will blast all of the administrators, and they will help you out ASAP. Or you can check the Users Online link and find the Admins/Mods that are online at the time. Click on the Terms of Service link in your header, then scroll down to see the link for "Users Online." Click on it and find an Admin/Mod who is logged in (Plain blue color indicates they are a city rep and cannot help you, you need someone with colors who has a box around their name as mine does.) Then send them a PM (private message) and see if they can help you out. I look forward to getting to know you all over the coming months. If you have any questions at all about FanForce or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. If I don?t personally know the answer to your question, I will do my best to find it out for you. Linda Crispien FanForce RSA Pacific USA Region President and Co-Founder San Diego Star Wars Society, an Official Chapter of FanForce!
