Okay this is the suggestion page. Make any suggestions for improvement here.

To start off I would ask a question for you all; What kind of content do you think we need for the main page? If you could provide images as well it would be of great help.

Since the group itself is incredibly versatile (as it pertains to all Weapons, Wars, and Warriors.) I have been having great trouble coming up with balanced content for the main page.

well, it would seem that since our topic is so broad, and our front page can't have too much detail on it, that your going to have to generalize quite a bit while still keeping the groups demeanor and all the while, making it apealing.

There are a number of things you could do because all of your information will come straight out of history. Maybe have a few interesting facts about things that have happened through the ages. A theme might be an approprite thing to include since you cant condense all of history into this page. I.e- you could show the evolution of weapons from the golden age to today (or even the stone age if you want to go really far.) In thiis way you can incorperate pictures down the narrow field.

I'll continue to add forum topics as they come to mind. As soon as you've completed the front page- we'll add a bunch of people.

I was thinking of putting a chart showing the evolution of weaponry opposite a chart showing the evolution of warriors. In the middle would be a chart showing the evolution of great wars.

Aside from that, perhaps we can find a few good anime warriors to put in there. Might have a contest to pick them. (With my special criteria added.)

-Updated-

There added a contest for the weapons, wars, and warriors here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-154302/OFFICIAL-MAIN-PAGE-NOMINATIONS-Stage-1.html

Also added contest for greatest anime warriors: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-154314/The-Greatest-Anime-Warriors-Nominations-Stage-One.html

contests are always a good idea and I was hoping that you'd add in something to do with anime. THis is an anime based site so it only makes sense. I'll tell you If I come up with anything else otherwise- just keep doing what your doing

Have you thought of issuing an assignment system? Like in many of the anime fan groups- certain users are assigned to certain characters. In our case, this thread I made: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-148062/What-kind-of-warrior-would-you-want-to-be.html#8903667 could be adapted in order to assign people to certain warriors...I guess I'd have to be an ancient Macedonian from the Macedon empire

When the group is more established- we can give these people updates in order to keep them active. for example- we could assign them their choosen warrior than a few weeks later ask them to upload a picture, then a few weeks later- give them updates on the group.

I think this could be an effective way to keep people active.

Perhaps that would be fun. We would need to elaborate on it though.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/group/BeSt_gundam_meisters, this is kind of what I mean, its just that the makers of the group didn't keep the people they assigned active.

This was an anime fan group for Gundam 00, when it first started, the group was very active. However the anime got licensed so its pretty much dead right now. It didnt have to die, its just that the makers got a little lazy.

Users of groups will want to be a part of it, If their username is on the main page- they will be more active. If we personally include them in the building of the site, for example- send them personal messages telling them to do something or giving them updates on new forums- they are more likely to keep coming back. Thats the goal, to keep people coming back. It will be like having a whole group of mini mods.

In the case of the thread I made, http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-148062/What-kind-of-warrior-would-you-want-to-be.html#8903667 Where I asked what kind of warrior you would like to be, I could make it so that your name would be attached to the front page with whatever you chose as your warrior and era.

for example, this would show up on the front page.

Macedonian is a Warrior from the ancient Macedon empire!

A week later I could ask all the people who signed up to provide a picture. Then if we approved, we could put it on the front page.

Another couple weeks later I could ask them to provide a description of the kind of warrior they chose and why they chose it. Then if we approved, we could put it on the front page.

In another couple weeks I could ask them to provide a description of the weapons the warrior they chose used, etc, etc.

In this way, we'll end up drawing these users that are attached to the front page back all the time. Another bonus is that the front page will build itself due to a collaborative effort of the whole group. We'll have lots of good, historical information and pictures on there that we always have to approve of before putting on the front page. Thats why I think it could be a good idea.

Sounds great. You can set it up and make a thread or something to figure out the content and just let me know and I'll update it.

They would have to be more specific criteria since we don't need 60 people with "Samurai" by their name. haha

Or they could be actual historic and/or anime warriors people could have. Like "Pick a Character." or such.

once one samurai is picked, thats it. Pick another race or another time. If more than one person wants to be one race- we give it to whoever is more active in the group or whoever the mods believe is mroe knolegeable on that particular era. hows that sound?


once we have a lot of people, and a lot of races, we can still catagorize others into the era they want but, we only sent the pms to the first guy who had the position otehrwise its waaaay to much work for us. And, that wayy- others dont feel ignored.

I don't know about the whole race thing. Might be a bit too complicated.
I agree about the activity. I like that idea. Have it a first-come, first-serve type thing and if there is a conflict, give it to whoever is more active.

I still find we might need more than just the warrior class. Era is good. Like Bakumatsu Samurai, High Middle Ages Knight Errant, etc.

Or perhaps we could have it like something as a reward for being active or doing something.

If it were to be a reward- we'd have to offer something else as well...

I guess you'd just have to prove your active before puttiing you on the front page.

What do you find complicated?

The races thing you had.

As such; "A Nordic Samurai" would just sound strange and it would, IMHO, look stupid.

If we keep it at a warrior class and era I feel we would have enough versatility.

Unless you want to add virtues in there.

oh sry, that was a mistype on my part- thats not what I meant at all. I mean that since there are only so many different types of warriors- If a person wanted to be put under a warrior (i.e samurai) and it was already taken, they could be put into a samurai group. there would only be one actual samurai. the rest would just be followers.

...you know what- scratch that- the idea really doesnt serve a purpose...
