    Hi, my name is Bill, and I?m the new RSA. Over the coming days, weeks and moths, I?ll hopefully be getting to know you all better. I?m here to help you out.

    What is an RSA? ]

    Southwest Regional Support Administrator


    It?s the City Rep?s first line of assistance, and the most local ?official ? representative for Fan Force. I?m just a volunteer, just like you all are. But I?ll do my best to serve you.

    What can an RSA do to help you?

    I can ban, edit and change posts for you. If someone spams you, I can clean it up. If you need someone to get spanked, let me know.

    I can also post news stories for you. Your CR can contact me, and I?ll post it as soon as possible.

    I?m also going to be sharing more info with you and helping each FF group get better.


    How do you contact me?

    Emergencies
    (the big ones, like someone spamming your forum with porn, severely bad language or other nastiness), the best thing to do would be to email fanforce@theforce.net and JC-admins@theforce.net. This will blast all of the admins, 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. This link is directly under your user name on your screen. Click on it and find an Admin/Mod who is logged in. Then send them a PM (private message) and see if they can help you out. (Admins/Mods are the ones with the colored names. City Reps are in Blue, but they can't ban/edit other user's posts).

    Posting notices for your groups:

    If it's an extremely short-notice message and very time critical, email fanforce@theforce.net . This will blast all of the FF admins, and the first one to it will post the message for you. Let's try not to have too many last minute notices, OK? ;)

    For other announcements, PM me. I'll get to it as soon as I get on the boards, and I'll PM you back as soon as I've posted it.


    Non Emergencies

    ICQ: 149401129
    Please keep this for more FF related type of stuff. Your CR should probably add me to their lists, and I'll be adding him/her to mine.

    PM
    This is great for getting hold of me the next time I log onto the JC. Or the next time I refresh my screen if I'm online. It's probably my preferred way of getting hold of me for routine business.

    Email
    If you want my private email address, PM me, and I can give it to you.






    Line Parties

    If you're interested in setting up a line party, please go to this forum here. This is a forum for everyone to share ideas about opening night line parties. Share info, and learn what others are doing here.



    Where do I see FF going?

    This is a HUGE time for FF groups. AOTC is opening in a few months, and there will be a lot of interest in SW again. Not just here on the boards, but out in town. Real people. Real fans. Wanting to get together with other real fans.

    That's what FF is really about. I'm here to help you do that. I'd like to ask your FF CR to PM me with info on what activities you've done, what works, what doesn't work. That type of stuff. Then I'll share the wealth with all of you, and the other FF groups. No sense in making everyone re-invent the wheel, right? Keep an eye on the SW Regional General Discussion Forum for more info. I?m going to be posting more info there as I get it.

    From there, I'd love to see more FF groups growing and getting involved with their communities. Getting to know their local 501st troopers. Helping each other make props and costumes, that kind of stuff.

    If you have links, info and other stuff that you?d like to share, PM me. Post it here. Let me know. Let me know how you think we can make FF a better group. I don?t have all the info, and I?m sure some of you have some ideas that?ll help everyone out.

    Let?s hear it!

    Wow, a real RSA of our very own. Lt me be the first to sign in.

    I'm MoronDude. I'm 20 (21 in June), I live in Pahrump, NV but will be moving to Vegas shortly to start UNLV. I'm a huge Star Wars fan, enjoying the movies, books, games, you name it. I'm a Renaissance Star Wars geek, if you will. I really wanna get a FF together and meet some cool people.

    Obey Wann, mind if I ask you some questions?

    1) Where are you from?

    2) Did you read the FAN FORCE! thread in this forum where we tried, but failed to get together to do something?

    3) Do you think you can make it work?

    1) Where are you from?

    Denver, CO

    2) Did you read the FAN FORCE! thread in this forum where we tried, but failed to get together to do something?

    yes, I just read it...

    3) Do you think you can make it work?

    Absolutely. Couple of quick questions:

    Do you have 3 or more SW fans in Las Vegas?

    Can you get them together in one place?



    Here are a few things that I did that helped get the Denver (Rocky Mountain) FF off the ground:

    I put a link to it in my signature line. I posted (not spammed) in a lot of different boards.

    I went to places that I liked to hang out and talked with people. Knife stores, Toys R Us, stuff like that.

    And I talked it up a lot in the FF board. I made the FF board a place that looked like it was rocking. Even before it was.

    Check out some of these places:

    501st
    Dewback Wing
    ASAP (A site about props)


    Local Comic Shops
    Local Collector's Shops
    Local Model Shops
    any place a SW geek might hang out. ;)

    Make up some flyers and place them in these places (with management's permission). Make them half page, so you get twice as many flyers for your $$$. SW fonts are available at TFN.

    set up a yahoo group that blasts messages out to everyone. This will get the word out to them, even if they don't frequent the boards.


    Then, post that you'll have your first meeting. Make it simple, or make it fun. If you have a Dave & Busters, go there. Or have a simple get together meeting to start.

    But most of all, make it fun. :D

    Hope this helps. I'll be adding LV to my watched forums, and I'll stop by more often, OK? :D


    I think you ahve a good chance of making it happen, but you might have to make some noise, both in the real world, and on multiple SW boards on the net.

    MTFBWY!!!
