Well, let's source as good as we can... when we can't find the source we can also write: "This picture isn't source and the source doesn't excist anymore. When you can't source it, don't upload it."
That's better than nothing.

Yeah, we can wait a couple of days. But we could already start it as a normal blog and start to reblog some no. 6 fanarts that are already sourced.

Ah, I don't have even 100 followers on my personal blog... but I don't really want to post other fanarts on my own artblog anymore.  (But I'll post advertisement for the forum there...)

So then...maybe starting next week or so? I mean we can still plan a couple of things first... ^^

Oh yes, when I spoke about reblogging it to our own blogs I was speaking about the advertisement first. I didn't expect you to reblog everything to your artist blog^^ I know you want to keep it for your own art.

Next week sounds good... new week, new era?^^ And also it can give us time to plan a few things. Like if we also want to advertise for the No.6 Days every month, etc.

Okay, the lenghty reply will come once I'm home. Just wanted to say:
@Ahiku: I think you meant 'reposted' rather than 'reblogged' when informing a tumblr artist in the Guidelines ^^

@Yuneyn: Yeah :3 Doing some advertisement stuff is ok. I think I can reach at least some people then. I don't have as many followers as elanra, but quite a few on my artblog...

But maybe there's someone who has more? I dunno o.o Let us know, dear anon! ^^

@Lawl: Oh, thank you. o_o I don't know, I've always issues with those two words. XD I'll change it.

Okay, here's the promised lengthy reply to everything that happened while I was away xD

@Ahiku: I have faith that we'll be enough people in the end xD And I suck at blog themes, so sorry, no help from me regarding that ...

Yeah, you're probably right about the 'we'-thingy (Yay, I'm part of a collective being xD)

I'd say we post the reposted arts on the shared account too. That way we have also an art posting blog and maybe more people would volunteer to help out.

I doubt I have more followers than you (or at least, most of them probably aren't into No.6 enough to really help sourcing). But so long as other people can reblog it and spread the word, it should be okay, no matter which blog it posts in the end, right?



@Weisel: I agree with Ahiku, your name for the blog is really great.



@Yuneyn: I'll advertise too! (Read: I'm gonna reblog any post regarding this new blog and the forum.) I have a Pixiv account too and already bookmarked several artists and such so I could help out with asking for permission :)

Most sources of deleted art are available with Saucenao. If you follow the link to Pixiv it just tells you that either the artist deleted the art (or their whole account) or marked it as privat. Though I think we should still add something like that, like Ahiku suggested.

Thanks for your reply, Lawl. I've already started a blog with that name to make sure no one else uses it XD I mean... who knows. oO. But just like Yuneyn said I guess it's better to wait a couple of days and start to post things there starting next week. I just thought I could start it already to prepare everything. (Not that anyone knows that this is our blog, especially when nothing's there at all XD)

If you see any uncourced art until then we could source them on our own blogs. I did this today. Maybe you guys could keep an eye on your tracked No. 6 tags if there's anything unsourced...

Until next week I'll draw a picture for our blog which will also be the advertisement picture and I'll also try to find a nice theme. Something simple will do it... I mean we don't need that much stuff.

I need your e-mail adresses to invite you. Lawl, I'll take the one in your profile summary. I have yuneyn's... and @weisel, is that email adress in your summary here ok?

Yeah, maybe it should be more like a shared No. 6 blog in general. We could also post links to fanfictions once in a while... repost fanarts (of course just when we have the permission)... so that more people who like No. 6 will follow us. And to lighten things up a bit...

I also though about something like "Blog of the week"... but I'm not sure if I want to do this on my own blog... because I could reach more people since our blog is still brand-new...but maybe we could also use our No. 6 blog to introduce other No. 6 blogs (or at least blogs who have something nice...concerning No. 6)... each week another one... for example: iwatch-theworld... When you want to want to know more about Safu, it's the best blog....Just go and ask her... and then the next week... maybe shitshionsays... a funny blog about...oh what kind of surprise - **** shion says!

Ah I've seen the blog, thanks for creating it^^

About the advertisement, are you thinking about just an image or also a short text explaining what exactly we are doing?

Blog of the week sounds good. Or maybe it could be an "of the month" category, not sure we can do it week after week. We should avoid putting too much pressure on ourselves from the start or we'll just burn out. A monthly suggestion post would be fine... like one blog, one fanfiction, one AMV, one fan art, something like that. (Like for the fan art it could be one that go reposted in the shared blog and got the most notes during the last month?)

Yep, I already received your invitation :) I don't mind to wait until next week or so. I think it's probably better, just like Yuneyn said. Let it all cool down a bit and then we can start up this whole thing and make it known on tumblr.

I think it's a good idea to promote fanfictions we enjoyed =) This way, people will have something good to read should they search for something ^^ And it's also good to keep track on the newly posted fanfictions.

I agree with Yuneyn. We should slowly develope the blog and add new content bit by bit. Maybe we'll be more people until then and it's not gonna be too much work to keep so many little things rolling ^^

Thanks for your answers... :3 I've opened another thread where we can discuss about it. In the end it's just needs a bit preparation. Once things are done we won't have that much work. Especially when all people who share this blog help a bit... especially concerning sourcing.

I think for the casual No. 6 day it's enough to have one advertisement pic x text post... we can reblog it each month as signal boost. That's not that much work at all. And it's not just about creating new stuff then, but also reblogging more No. 6 stuff than usually... post some quotes or metas or whatever. So it's practically no work for No. 6 day... except doing something for No. 6 day.

Then our "best things of the month"... I don't think it's too much work. We just have to decide what's the best... write 2 nice praising sentences about it... I'll prepare a banner and stuff we can use each time, so that it's kinda uniform each month.  That shouldn't be too much work.

So the main thing is unsourced art and then a bit work when we have a special event. ^^ I think that's enough. Maybe we can do more if more people want to help, too. But I think that's a proper offering.

*waves a tiny little flag* I wanna help source if I can! I mean, I know my blog is a roleplay blog but I can still reblog advertisements and other things to help out a bit (It's become more of a No.6 blog since I've been rping less). I've got a decent amount of followers that will be able to see it so that could help us. I really like all the things going on here and am not sure what else to add.

I like the shared blog and the notes that Lawlya and Ahiku put up to help us ask artists for permission. I also like the fact there there are tiny messages regarding sourcing and taking down art as well~

Okay, then I'm moving (sounds kinda odd xD).

Yeah, if you put it like this, it doesn't sound like much work at all. Think we could handle this ^^ Okay, I'll look at the new thread now :)

@Curiousscarletteyes: Glad, you want to help out :D That's awesome! (Would have never thought so many people would volunteer to source art ^^)



Oh, yeah! What just came to my mind - are we planning to introduce a uniform tagging system? Would be easier for followers and us. (I don't know if this is even a topic we need to talk about but I thought I might as well ask ^^")

@curiousscarletteyes: (*_*) Yaaay! I've sent you an invitation. ^^
Thanks for offering your help. When we're more people everything will be easier and faster and less work for every single person.

@Lawl: Oh yeah, why not. ^^ Why don't you write a new post in the guidline thread? :3 Don't think we have to discuss about the tags... XD We just should know which tags we should use then.

Yay for a new tagging system!
I guess we need obvious tags, like for Nezushi, and the other characters (all of them, or do we stick to Nezumi and Shion?). And also a sourcing tag... what else?

Okay, I'm gonna try the tagging system now xD Tell me if I forget something important ^^"

Yep, character tags, ship tags (mostly NezuShi and SafuKashi I guess), both No.6 tags, a sourcing tag, a mod tag for posts that consider the blog and the people using it ... maybe a short rec tag for anything that we recommend. And since it's always a pain with tumblr fanmail (the 'You must follow this person'-thingy) I thought about adding a stolen art tag too and just inform the artists via the new system of tumblr ... (You know, the 'Jemand hat dich in einem Post erwähnt'-thing ... Don't know how tumblr calls it in English; my mails are mostly German ^^")

Okay, gonna post that in order now and as I said - tell me, if you want to have a tag for something or don't like a tag or something, I'm gonna edit it then :)

@Lawl thanks for your effort! :3

Hmmm, I think we also need a tag for our event stuff. No. 6 Day, the other events (but I guess we have to decide them when it's time for them XD), then our fanwork of the month section...

I'm done with our blog. ^^ It's just empty, that's why it's looks a bit strange... We'll also use the banner for our first posting there, when we explain everything... (Hey... Is there someone who can write a nice text? XD)
