Title: Help Name the New Spotlight Feature!
Post by: Bitten on Sat, May 07, 2011, 07:47 AM
We would like to start a new feature on our main web sites, specifically: a spotlight feature about you!

You guys are the best. You bring so many funny, cool and unique things to our community, whether it's a new pet or a kid's birthday or a crazy story. We're lucky to be able to share all these things with you, and so we want to give you a little more attention. After all, you members are the primary reason we are here, so we think you deserve to be in the spotlight along with Vin and the other "stars."

With your approval, we'd like to introduce a box on the VX and MX web sites featuring some of your activities. This will be similar in appearance to the Weekly Q&A (take a look at it  HERE (http://vinxperience.net/), on the right-side of the page). For instance, we might include a short blurb about the huge turtle that visited Ban Sidhe's yard, or a note about FuryanGoddess's new guinea pig. 

This new feature will probably run sporadically, rather than on a set schedule. And, as part of the main site, the feature will also appear in our news feed, Facebook and Twitter updates. But don't worry, we won't include any personally identifying information -- just your screen name and a brief note about any unique or interesting things you've posted.

As we only want you to participate in this if you are comfortable with it, we will, of course, ask for your permission before choosing one of your topics to be featured.

In order for this new feature to work, we need to have a good name for it. This is where you come in -- do you have any suggestions for us? "What's Up With Our Members?" is one idea, but we think you guys might come up with something better. So unleash your creativity and let us hear your ideas!

Thanks for your help!

i saw the idea about posting info from the fans - good idea to ask them first

as far as the name goes - i would suggest something that paraphrases one of his lines from the movies:

the things I'm going to do for my fans - xxx
know who you are fucking with - Riddick
get some self respect - AMA
500 fans - KAG
what do we put in our sandwiches - dom
we live life a quarter page (sic not mile) at a time - dom


still thinking....

I'm having a hard time at being creative for this! Sorry, but I do like mrstrentreznor's idea of using paraphrases from one of Vin's movies. After all most of us came here because of our love for Vin and his movies!!

 :hide  We had hoped to unveil it weeks ago, but we got caught up in a bunch of extra unexpected board work and then a host of real life issues have drained our spare time... We've got a logo ready to go (I think) so we need to test it to be sure it shows up properly on all our sites, and then we should be good to go. I'm sorry we've been delayed with this, because I think it's a fun idea.
