1 Another idea. Regarding chapters :) on Sun Jan 15, 2012 12:51 am

I just had an idea. Some of you might love it, some might hate it. Either way, I just wanted to say it:


Website.



Many successful legacies and stories are not in threads or in stories, they are in a separate blog. I thought that we could make our own, too. That way, we can make heaps of new features, make it easier for readers to navigate through the story, and promote it. Of course, we will still have this forum and the thread, but as an extra, we can have the site too. I don't know why, but I like sites better. I think it is better because we can actually customise everything, and lay it out how we want.
If we were to go for this idea, (which you don't have to, I'm just suggesting,) I am happy to set it all up. I've got all the banners, photos, logos ect. And I'm happy to invest a lot of my time to get the site working and looking great!
And if we really want to go overboard, I'm happy to set up an e-mail, twitter and facebook for the site. If you look at other sucessful sims stories, they had at least one of these. I just want to do what's best for the story. If not, okay. Just suggesting. Smile

Tell me what you think. If you don't like it, okay, but if so, I am excited to see it. Very Happy [i]

I'm working on the site now. We don't have to launch it, I've set it so no one else can see it yet. But once I'm done, I'll unlock it and give you the url. Very Happy

Here is the link:

It is far from done, but I wanted to share it so you can help me make the site better. What else should I include? Better ideas for setup? Found a perfect background image? Tell me, so I can tweak it.

I'm really tired so I'm off to bed, so like I said, the site is not done. Suggestions would be great! And it might be handy to make a blogspot account, if you want. Anyways, I have to go now.


Bye! Very Happy

Looks great!
Except for one thing that isn't really your fault- I wanted Zoe to be 17, (if Jory agrees to make Kade 17 or 18, too.) because she looks older than 14 and Kade and her kind of 'lead' the carrers, and it won't look right if they'll be two years younger than the rest.

I've pretty much finished the blog, but I feel like I'm missing something. I need ideas!!! I just feel like I've missed something incredibly important!

And I'm trying to find some places where we can advertise it, but to no avail. Sad I'm not giving up, though! Smile
(I mean to advertise the thread, not the blog, because I don't know if everyone wants it yet. Neutral )

My name will be mentioned - once I write something.
I feel bad about taking credit for what I didn't do, you were the one who wrote, doesn't matter based on what. Smile

I just wanted to say, it isn't just my site, it is our site. And what I think we should do is upload something every week. No, I don't mean we upload a story every week, that would be pretty hard to do. But, we could upload maybe a tribute bio, some pictures, just a little something every week so readers don't tire of the site and forget it completely.

Oooh!
We could put like 'sneek peeks' to the next chapter, like putting pictures, or some of the text...

Great!

I also had another idea, which we could do if we're running late. We could have an interview with the head gamemaker (who we'll make up) and Caesar Flickerman, on what to expect from the Games. Of course it will be vague, and we won't really know anything extra, it will just create buzz for the Games. Which is what we're aiming for. Very Happy

But first, we need to figure out what we're doing. Honsetly, I think we should make a full roster now, of the stuff we need to do. That way, people know what they have to do, so they just do it instead of wondering what we have to do. Here is an example:

(Just to state the obvious - xxx = ? = We don't know who will be in that chapter. If we do that chapter.)

Prologue:
Purle - Emmi-Belle

Chapter 1 - Reaping, part 1:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 2 - Reaping, part 2:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 3 - Goodbyes:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 4 - Arriving in the Capitol:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 5 - Opening Ceremony:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 6 - In the Capitol:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 7 - Training:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 8 - Interviews:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 9 - Leaving the Capitol:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 10 - The Launch:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 11 - The Hunger Games, Day 1, part 1:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 12 - The Hunger Games, Day 1, part 2:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 13 - Day 2, part 1:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 14 - Day 2, part 2:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 15 - Flashbacks:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 16 - Day 3, part 1:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 17 - Day 3, part 2:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 18 - Mentors in the Capitol:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 19 - Day 4, part 1:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 20 - Day 4, part 2:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 21 - Day 5, part 1:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 22 - Day 5, part 2:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 23 - Back in the districts:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 24 - Day 6, part 1:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 25 - Day 6, part 2:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 26 - Day 7, part 1:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 27 - Day 7, part 2:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 28 - Interviews of loved ones:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 29 - Day 8, part 1:
xxx
xxx

Chapter 30 - Day 8, part 2 (final day):
xxx
xxx

Chapter 31 - Victor, return to the Capitol:
Sashunya - Electric

Chapter 32 - Recap:
(Here it wouldn't be anyone's point of view, it would be like the actual show and just be a recap of some of the best, and worst, moments in the Games.)

Epilogue:
Sashunya - Electric

This is an example. And I think we shouldn't have twelve days, because we'd run out of things to do, because in the RPG something spectacular didn't happen every second of the Games.


(I thought that instead of just doing the tributes, we could look into the mentors as well. That way, we have a different perspective and that way people know what they are going through. Since the tributes have no clue what's happening, being a mentor for a chapter lets us know what the districts and Capitol think of the tributes, and we get to see what they do as mentor.)


I think we should figure all this out now, that way we can write it up quicker, take pictures quicker, and ultimately post new chapters quicker. Very Happy

Sounds good. Smile
Though we can't really be sure about the arena, because that's the main part of the story, and the part that is most likely to change.

We don't need to plan it all out exactly, the roster would just be so people know when they have to write, so it saves the week of deciding and replaced with a week of making. Very Happy

Cool
Actually, we cdon't have to wait to make the second part of the frist chapter, since the both of them happen in the same time.

OK, so the first part will have Ele and... One of the guys? Ashlon, Nemo, Sage?
And the chapter after that could have Emmi-Belle or Cyrus, and someone else? That still leaves a district without a reaping chapter, so they should have a Goodbyes chapter after that.

Me and the way I think...
