Hello again!
« on: October 20, 2014, 10:41:44 pm »
Hey, everyone! I've been talking about the forum with a few people today, so I thought I'd start up a little conversation again. I'd hate to be all talk and no action... Anyway, I know a lot of us are busy with school now, so why not share what's been going on with classes and such? I'm starting massage school next month, but otherwise I haven't been doing school stuff yet.

Hi :)

Thanks for having this idea! I think I'll wait a few days for things to calm down (and me to get some sleep because omg this wrecked me) and then probably start spreading the forum again. Who knows, maybe this time it'll hold up!

Well on my side I haven't been too busy, still unemployed and not really knowing what I want to do. Thank God I have a patient husband, but well, I'm going to have to figure things out soon.

Massage school sounds nice! I hope you'll have a great time there!

*crawls in here and snuggles up against Yuneyn* :3
God I'm so tired and it's so cold. ;_; Also slept just 2 hours or so...

I hope we can revive the forum, and maybe to some things... just like the No. 6 day idea you had, Weisel... (I thought it would be great to have a No. 6 day each month, but without topics... it's just a day dedicated to No. 6.... when people don't feel like creating new stuff they can still reblog a whle bunch of old postings... and maybe they'll feel more motivated to do some things without being too pressured. So it's just like a normal day, but maybe a little bit more special...

(And maybe we should open another post and discuss how to deal with unsourced art now...)

But well, just my thoughts concerning things we could do...

It would be nice to talk a bit... even if we are just a few people here, it would be nice to have at least nice contact to some people in the fandom.

Massage school sounds really nice. *-* I have vacation at the moment, and I still try to find a better job. But it's not that easy. I just don't want to go there again when my vacation is over. ;___; Especially since I have a horrible shift schedule... 2x 6 days in a row and just one day off... I'm already done when I just think about it.

Oh god, Ahiku and Yuneyn, I'm sorry for your lack of sleep ... I only got into bed an hour late yesterday and was already nearly sleeping in lecture today in university >.> Coffee in the break saved me ...

Yeah, that would be nice though I'm not particularly good at replying in forums, really xD I just never know what to speak of ^^" But yeah, getting in touch with people in the fandom sounds nice - that's why I decided to write back a fast reply before going to bed (late again ...)

I would totally be in for massage school if it'd be just for fun. Really there's just so much you could learn about that sounds so interesting but you barely have the time (or money) to really indulge in everything that interests you.
How's your vacation doing, Ahiku? Just don't think about it - you're going to find a new job, I have faith in you! Oh, and of course Yuneyn too! A bit of 'not being busy' would be good for me but I know it gets on one's nerves if it's too long ...

Well, I burdened myself with a lot of work for university. Everyday except Monday at least from 10 to 17 o'clock x.x This has gone a week and I was sleeping like a log on Saturday ... Three more weeks to go then everything's calming down a bit ^^"

Yay sleeping!!! Ah I'm starting to feel a little better^^ Thanks for your kind words :)


I'm also not too great with forums... but I guess that usually it's because everyone already knows each other. If we're doing this "from scratch" again I guess it'll be different. I'll do my best in any case, we're still a bunch of motivated people, so there's no reason that this fandom will die :-)


Good luck with university Lawlya, and the job searching Ahiku. *cuddles everyone in this forum*

Thaaanks Lawl. I was able to sleep 6 hours last night, so I'm feeling a bit better now. :3
I'm glad you feel better too, Yuneyn.

I'm used to forums... I'm in a amateur voice acting group and we also have a forum... it's mainly to plan our stuff together, because it's the easiest way to plan something... since you can start topics and masterposts to have a nice overview... That's something you just can't do on Tumblr. of course you can do a guidline post, but it will drunk in the flood of new posts very quickly.

Apart from that we also don't talk that much in our forum... but we also have a chat threat. But it works as long as people come check it out once in a while and really want to work together. We planned so many things together... that's why I know that things like that can work!
And it's always better when there are not tooooo many people... But I hope that some other people will join us, until we have a nice little, motivated group. I mean there are also a lot of people who don't want to do something and just enjoy everything, because they are just on a short journey through the fandom, but it would be nice when they think that we, even if we are a small fandom, we really do care for it. So if you know people, friends of you, please also ask them personally if they want to help... ^^

Ah, it's raining... XD Yesterday I visited my grandma, but I'll just use the rest of my days off to rest a bit, I'm really exhausted. I'll do some stuff for No. 6, draw some fanarts and think about some stuff we could do in the future. And I'll try to find a better job....So well... XD

Don't overdo it Lawl... o.o *gives you power motivation NezuShi snack bars that will give you lots of energy so that you'll survive this semester easily*

Yes, it's like I saw someone's post about having a very small but tight community... it can be better than a large community where everyone is anonymous. To be honest I'm just happy if I can exchange with a group of nice people, I'm not so good in large groups! (which is why I barely posted anything in the KH forum I joined)

As for friends um... I have one friends who read the first 8 volumes, but to be honest I'm not sure she'll join if I ask. I'll still ask, but my IRL friends are not as passionate as I am about these things^^

Maybe that was me... I guess I told you once about the Meitantei Conan forum I was a part of... I was just 16 back then, and it was the time when I discovered the internet.
It was a very small forum (ok, bigger than this one...)... just like our voice dubbing forum...
There were about 20 people who posted regularly and some others who dropped by once in a while... but I really made some good friends back then, I still have contact to some of them. I met a lot of them personally. We weren't that many, but we had found really good friends who liked the same stuff and whenever we had the possibility we had litte reunions. ^^ (But ok, we didn't live that far away... they all were from Germany...) There's even one of the guys I still meet every now and then, (rarley, but we still have contact) he's just living in the next city.
The same with the voice dubbing group.

Of course it's impossible that we know the complete fandom... but whenever someone wants to join our little group we'll welcome this person. ^^

Ah, god, you don't have to ask her... I thought...about followers you've never talked to or something like that. When I see some very passionate people in my tags who reblogged my art I think I'll invite them, since I'd love to talk to them. ^^ And maybe they also want to meet other people.

Ah no, I've seen this post like 2 days ago when everything was hectic. It was from a user I didn't know before. But yes, I guess it's pretty much the same thing. In any case, as long as we're motivated things should not die... at least not yet. (I mean anything could happen, people's lives change, so I wouldn't bet anything that we'd all still be here in a few years, but for now it's nice).

On another subject, my copy of No.6 volume 9 has still not been sent, and Amazon's expected delivery date is November 6th what the hell? (They did this for every volume but usually one week before the release date they said that the delivery would be earlier, so I was expecting this for this one too lol) (hopefully it'll still come before the end of the month...)

I'm not always super talkative or helpful, but I'm hoping we get a good group of people here, too, since we all like meeting new people in the fandom and hearing what they have to say. I'm glad you all are creative, passionate people because I wouldn't really know what I could do on my own.

Also, glad to hear from you all again!

@Weisel Thank you. We can do things together... that's why we are here. And thanks for visiting the forum always...even though nobody was here. You're really loyal. *hugs you* I'm glad we'll try to revive the forum. And you are helpful, I mean you're still here. Even if everyone just does a little...it's better than nothing.

@Yuneyn. Ah, but yeah, that person's definitely right. XD
Hm, that's really weird. Are they striking or something? Amazon says that my copy should arrive tomorrow, but I'm not sure about it, since it's that stupid PIN AG again. (._.) I really don't want to order stuff there anymore. (It's not good that it's the last volume, but I'm glad when I don't need that stupid PIN AG anymore.)
I hope your copy will arrive soon. oo° That sucks a lot.

@Weisel Thanks a lot! I'm glad we're trying to revive this forum... I admit I deserted it in the summer - though to be honest I deserted pretty much everything as I was in a pretty bad place - and then when I came back it wasn't really active anymore. Let's do better this time^^

@Ahiku Yeah I don't know... I have to order via the French Amazon since there's no Amazon Luxembourg (funny as their office is here haha), so maybe this is just a typical case of French laziness. Though I've just checked and last time I got it around August 30th, so well, I'm still hoping for October^^ I hope yours won't get lost again this time!!!

Ah, thanks! *takes the power motivation NezuShi snack bars* I can really use those xD
Worst thing about this is that I volunteered to stay so late in university for the first two weeks ^^" So I'm always whining to the others that I want to go home already >.> Well, it's interesting at least :)

Well, the 8th Volume came later than announced, right? Wouldn't be surprised if the sales have gone up and therefore they can't send them out earlier ^^ At least I haven't gotten an E-Mail yet either.
Wait, you already got an E-Mail, Ahiku? Huh, that's really strange (I hope it's delivered this time - like really, if it's not then I would consider calling them xD)
Uhm ... I ordered with the German Amazon and didn't get one so maybe we'll just have to wait a few more days? I don't know xD I have faith in Amazon to get my copy to me >.>

@yuneyn... god Luxembourg is just so horribly small. ^^° And it's weird that they have an office there but that you have to order via Frensh Amazon. o_o I hope they'll send it soon.

@Lawl... so you didn't receive a mail yet? oo Weird. I got one, they started to send it yesterday and it should arrive tomorrow. But since it's that stupid PIN AG again, I'm not so sure about that. ^^°

Yeah, we all should have faith! We'll get our copies! (sooner or later x_x) Just listenforthelove is lucky to have it already, right?

*arrives late with Starbucks again but it's okay because Pumpkin Spice Latte! Whiiich I still have to try but it sounds delicious so THERE*

Oops yeah I already have my copy of No. 6 volume 9, sorry XD; one advantage of living in Ireland is that book stores sell books in English! And also manga! In normal book stores!! GASP! (I was so happily surprised to see No. 6 there though) But I'm leaving in December and not coming back, so time to do some job hunting. I still learnt a lot here though, and maybe I can pursue a further career in translating now that I have some experience~

Anyway, good to see everyone again! @Ahiku, I wish you much luck with job hunting and that you may find something really soon. Have some more hugs for strength!! *hugs* And good luck to @yuneyn as well, of course.

I hope you'll all get your copies of volume 9 really soon! Come on, Amazon!!
