PostSubject: News Letter   Mon Jul 13, 2015 9:56 pm

Hey everyone!
I remember back in the busier days of The Lake House we had a news letter, and it might be fun to bring it back! I remember I really enjoyed being involved in it, and it's a great way to keep people involved.

Creation
-Every other or every three months. We're all too wrapped up in school and life to do it every month for sure
-Give it it's own topic under "Forum News", that way "New and Updates" won't get too cluttered with news-letter stuff
-Instead of making one or two people the sole creators, have it be something the whole forum participates in. I would be willing to put it all together and delegate what needs to happen, but anyone who wants to write for it or make something for it can.
-Fan-art (or fiction or banner or whatever) contest.

Lay-out/Topics
-Announcements
-Message from the Mods (if there's anything y'all want to say haha)
-Fan works
-Review of some sort- Star Wars or other wise
-News in the SW fandom
-Maybe we highlight another fandom that is popular around TLF
-Contest or something

So, yeah, I hope y'all want to do this, and I am more than happy to plan everything out and do whatever to make this happen Very Happy

I'd love to bring back the newsletter! That's a great idea! Very Happy

If you'd like to plan everything that would be fantastic! I'm available to help with whatever you need! And I'm sure just about all of us would be willing to contribute for articles, news, etc.

I'd love to help!!! Maybe I can attempt to write a snippet of NSNW-style fanfiction to kick me back into gear with actually finishing NSNW4 xDDD And you can always get a message from this mod Very Happy

Ok, so I've been thinking- since this year is the 5th anniversary of TLF, should we focus all of our effort on a december newsletter? It would give us quite a bit of time and it would be fun to do something special for five years Smile

PostSubject: Re: News Letter   Sat Aug 29, 2015 7:09 pm

cool!
So i went back and took a look at the old news letters, and here's what i'm thinking...

Mod Updates- I know i already mentioned it, but i think that it's important to include that since y'all spent so much time bringing this place back to life xD you don't all need to do it- just who ever wants to Smile

TLF Memories- 5 years is a pretty big deal. DSK, Alli, and I are the oldest active members, so I would love if all three of us could write something Smile everyone else is welcome to, as well!

Fan Art- we did a lot of fan art/fan fiction stuff before, so it would be fun to do that again (Blue, you should totally write us something from NSNW!)

Costumes- idk it will have been halloween so if you want to share your costumes just for the heck of it that might be kind of fun Smile

Review/Fandom News- i know nothing about rebels right now, but if there's some fandom news or an episode (or story arc) that someone wants to review, that would be great!

let's try to keep this under 10-12 pages... the old newsletters averaged on 30 pages... I don't think any of us really have time to put that together or read it xD

You can PM me submissions or email me at koolkula98@rocketmail.com

Hello Lakehousers!
Crazy to think, but we’re approaching our 5 year anniversary. It’s been an awesome, wild ride, and to celebrate we are going to put together a newsletter! There are a number of things you can do to contribute- you can do any and all of the following, and if you have any questions or ideas let me know!

Contact Me: koolkula98@rocketmail.com
Share to my google drive: blackpearlletters@gmail.com
If you want to send things to me through TLF or Facebook feel free to do so!

Then and Now
-A picture of you from the year yourself joined (or 2010- the year TLF started) and a picture of yourself now
-A description of yourself/your life from the year you joined (or 2010- the year TLF started) and a description of yourself/your life now
You can submit pictures, writing, or both! Please use clear pictures (any size) and keep writing to minimum (you decide what that is)

How You Found TLF
-There will be a poll for this (both on the site and on the FB page)
-If you want to write about how you became a member, you’re welcome to do that, too!
-Keep the explanation short and sweet- limit 50 words

How TLF has been a part of your life/ Specific TLF Memory
-I know many of us can say that TLF has had an impact on our lives. Maybe it was a big part of our growing up, or a constant in a time of change, or the friends you made back at the beginning are now some of your closest friends.
-This can be as long or as short as you want (well, not novel length, please! xD ). If you have some pictures to include, that’s fine, too!
-Here are some prompts that you can write about
*Joining
*Meeting another Lakehouser
*CVI/CVII
*How TLF impacted you as a person/ helped you grow
-Sometimes a good way to write is to just ramble with no boundaries, and then edit to make it cohesive Smile Heck you can even write poetry for this I don’t care (if anyone does that would be cool haha)

Conventions and Cosplay
-Showcase your costumes, Star Wars or not! Limit 2 cosplays per person
-Was there an experience at a convention that stood out to you? Meeting a favorite actor? Meeting internet friends? A really cool run in with another fan? A spectacular cupcake that changed your life (personal experience from CVII lol)
-Writing- Max: 500 Words & 2 pictures

Fan Works
-Fanart
-Fan Fiction
-Fan Based Fashion
-Basically anything you want that’s fandom related (makeup/nails/christmas trees all cout!)
-Limit 2 submissions per person
Star Wars: TFA
-How could we do this without talking about The Force Awakens? Excited for it or disappointed in it, this needs to be kept SPOILER FREE, Also, this IS NOT a place to hate on the EU or to hate on TFA
-Write reviews, your general opinion, or just about your excitement of the fact that “OMG there’s a new Star Wars movie!!”
-Limit 3 pictures/1 submission per person, 100 word limit
-I have already seen it, so It’s ok if you accidentally spoil it- i’ll be proofreading it to make sure nothing slips through Smile
Star Wars: The EU
-This IS NOT about hating Disney for taking away the EU or to hate on TFA
-Talk about your favorite EU characters
-Favorite EU books
-Comparison/Contrast between timelines or versions of canon
-Limit 3 pictures/1 submission per person, 100 word limit

Is there anything else you need from the mods besides submissions?

I think a mod update like I mentioned before would be good- especially since you guys completely revamped the forum and all of you are "new" to the admin/mod positions to a lot of the old members lol

(i'm going to make a fb group for us)
