Topic: Questions And Answers

Got any questions about the site or the board?  Post 'em here.

Re: Questions And Answers

why not advertise the forum more? so we have more members it would make for more interesting information smile

I have a WEAKPOINT, speak ill of a person

Re: Questions And Answers

I want to get the wiki up and running before I really start advertising.

That doesn't mean you can't tell all of your mates, though.

And I did write the URL in eyeliner in the Birmingham Barfly Ladies' toilets.  All these rubbish bands had their myspaces graffitied all over, so I thought "Hey, why not?"

Re: Questions And Answers

I was thinking for the moment i have a friend who can make me a banner advertising coelakanth.com and i was just wondering if your happy with that? id only do it with your consent ofcourse wink

Re: Questions And Answers

At the moment this place feels like more of a hardcore fan board so I've only directed a couple of people here. Once the wiki is up it will give people more reason to visit and stick around.

Re: Questions And Answers

Well, it took me only five minutes, but there's this now:

http://www.coelakanth.com/coelakanthbanner.gif

You can use it like so:

HTML:

<a href="http://www.coelakanth.com/">
<img src="http://www.coelakanth.com/coelakanthbanner.gif" width="300" height="175" alt="Coelakanth.com" border="0" />
</a>

BBCode:

[url=http://www.coelakanth.com/][img]http://www.coelakanth.com/coelakanthbanner.gif[/img][/url]

However, don't spam places with it -- keep it for places you know you can plaster a big banner without getting people pissed off.

Re: Questions And Answers

Please get permission from the forum moderators before you do, we really don't want to piss people off. Or get our domain nuked for spamming.

Re: Questions And Answers

Don't worry, I've just posted about when I went to the gig in London and then mentioned this site at the end of my post.

Or you could always pimp your band again wink

Re: Questions And Answers

I'll do my best to get more members, I've talked about here over on Deviant Art, but there seems to be a tragic lack of Polysics fans. How sad. D;

Named "perfect POLYSICS cosplay girl" by the wonderful Hiroyuki Hayashi. <3

Re: Questions And Answers

What if we start inviting some heavy polyfans from japan?

I mean, 4 years later Coelakanth is still 0% the size it could be.

I'm not talking about spamming with new users, but true fans around the globe.

Your call.

I said I'm fine!

Re: Questions And Answers

It would be cool to see more people around here. I know Natsu Bam Bam is a tiny blip on a Japanese fan's radar, 'cause I think a few times on Twitter, Shizu or some of my other Japanese correspondents commented about it. But we don't have any Japanese fans there, I don't think. NBB is still very small.... sad

I don't post here much anymore but I still have a fond appreciation for Polysics. Hit me up on Twitter @west_haven if you really wanna talk to me smile

Re: Questions And Answers

The problem with these communities is that only the diehard western fans are active the year round. They get more active when polysics tours outside Japan or when a new CD is released.
Just as Carrie said, Natsubambam is known by some of the japanese fans, but because of the language barrier they aren't exactly active members. There are some of them that lurk around every now and then tho.
It would be great to get some active members in these communities.

Re: Questions And Answers

Coelakanth came about because there wasn't an active dedicated English language forum where Polyfans like Katemonkey and myself could hang out - OK, there was a Livejournal community but it was tumbleweed city.

Fast forward five years - Polysics haven't toured the UK in nearly half that time, Kayo left which was a big upset, a lot of our more active posters have moved on, there's Natsu Bam Bam which is far more informative and has actual content.

I'm not sure why any Japanese fans would want to hang out on Coelakanth when they're already pretty well catered for elsewhere with the band's own blog, No More Tears etc.

We're still very popular with the spammers though ;o)

Re: Questions And Answers

Yeah, the LJ community is so dead, it's sad. I wish there were more active Polyfans, but hopefully we can recruit more someday smile

I know Twitter is a good place to contact to Polyfans, even though it can be very brief encounters. But I wanted a nice, one stop shop for discussion and news, so from that, Natsu Bam Bam was born. I only hope that it continues to grow.

I think that's right, as long as we can imagine an argument against sentimentality that argues that the objects of sentimentality are just things like any other things and that they have no special properties.
