Any progress on organizing the events forum???

Also, could we make a MegaCon forum, and then of course the separate Star Wars Weekends forum. It'd help to keep everything in one centralized place and not clog up the events and one single thread too much.

Well the issue right now is our web team is pretty limited on staff and focusing on fixing some of the issues I will bring it up to crystal and see what we can do

Old thread but figured I would post. I like ther idea of having the north,east,west, south event tags but as I scroll the new topics or in the forum I tend to forget they are ours. Any way to add (FL-) or (RaKura-) to make it jump out a little? May just be me but if the idea works and other bases start to add a east or west things might get confusing for everyone.

Just my two credits.

-Sean

Well, just so you know, I am looking, but I don't have any specific suggestions. but I can tell you what I'm doing.

I'm here in Panama City -- out in left field in the panhandle. I can't pass the eye test for a driver's license, so I don't get around much either. Sometimes there are events in Pensacola and Tallahassee, but there really isn't any good way of getting there for me.

So, anything I go to, I have to get a ride (like DragonCon) or fly (other conventions). For almost any SF conventions I go to I'll wear a Jedi costume. I was at CostumeCon in Denver earlier and I was surprised that the local RL base had a fan table. Very nice. That was a larger than expected CostumeCon; I guess there was a lot of local demand. I was at Orycon a week-and-a-half ago in Portland OR. No RL activity there but the Madaloran Mercs had a fan table and a couple panels -- and Orycon has strict rules against weapons and masks, so it was buckets off and no blasters for the Mandos. I got busted for a lightsaber (posted on the Oregon RL base forum) -- VERY strict about no weapons.

So, are you interested in single mission reports? I've been wearing/making SF costumes for a long time. Someone on facebook posted my second costume ever - drag-ANH Obi-Wan Kenobi at Norwescon II. 1979. Back in the day, if you wanted to be a Jedi, you had to dress in drag, 'cause all you had was Luke and Ben.

1. Consolidate which forum or social media outlet will be used for base discussions, and then post big sticky posts at other locations directing people to the primary one.
For example to my knowledge there is this Ra Kura subforum, the Ra Kura subforum on the 501st FL Garrison forum page, and the Facebook group.
There is nothing on these forums or the 501st FL Garrison Ra Kura forums alerting people to the Facebook Group.

2. Be more interactive with and social with potential new members.

First I tried posting here but there was very little in the way of a welcome or any interaction. Christine Cembrook and some others suggested I use the Ra Kura section of the 501st FL Garrison forums, except other than myself no one has posted there since 2014. Two YEARS ago.

And now Im being told that most members are using a closed private Facebook group. Thats great except that as a prospective members Im not allowed to see it so I cant meet or interact with anyone on it.

As a membership based group dont you want to appear warm and welcoming to perspective members? Or is this supposed to be more like a secret society you know nothing about until officially a members? Because right now it appears mostly the second one.

And to add to that, nearly every dual member I have met in Florida has told me RL and Ra Kura are dead. That I should just join the 501st and then have a jedi costume on the side if I want. Making it hard to meet current members and socially interact with them or come to meetings or troops to meet people, is feeding into that impression.

When I told the 501st I wanted to join I was immediately friended on facebook by the local squad staff, I was invited to events as a handler to check out how they happen, I was given access to their forums to ask questions and talk with them, I was even invited to the members annual dinner. All before submitting a costume.....
That is a friendly welcoming environment.

So those are the base changes I would make.
