It is clearly stated in the rules to speak in English on the forum unless you are in the International section of the forum. A good portion of people on here CANNOT speak/read Spanish and it is breaking the rules that have been clearly set. I am not trying to be mean but it is kind of rude to speak in another language in an English forum, especially when the rules state to speak in English. If you have something to discuss with one another please use the PM (Private Message) button. I don't want to be a witch but it has happened far too often and I think it has not been brought to Tokio's attention. It doesn't mean it is okay to do it however. Please read the rules again.Thanks.

!! Rules
This forum was created for those of us who are going to the USA shows (or want to go).

-English Only (except in the International Forum)
-No Harassing / flaming / bashing / fighting / causing drama
-No spamming
-No Advertising non-VAMPS stuff
-No Affiliate links
-No Elitism
-Credit sources
-No sex/drugs/politics/religion discussion
-Stay on topic

Ok, I apologize and beg for mercy ¬_¬
Since we ALL understand english perfectly... maybe that's why this place is so full of action and people from all around the world SO gladly come everyday so many times to post and have a great time: the fact that it is inclusive. SARCASM HERE!
I will erase my post since no spanish-speaking people will go to San Diego and there is no need to think about their existence. SORRY AGAIN for breaking the rules.

ABOUT THE GLOWSTICKS
That's awesome!! :-D Thank you so much Usagi!!! I hope VAMPS love the ocean. I promise I will donate as soon as we are there on SD T.T or sooner if I get the chance to create a PayPal account. I wish you the best of lucks with the rest of the project. I wonder is the banner you posted is the final design, in order to buy matching Sharpies to sign *w*

@ Hedelex Look, Tokio made the rules for a reason. If YOU have a problem with the rules YOU message Tokio and tell her, do not gripe at me because I brought it to your attention you are clearly breaking the rules. Tokio clearly made the rules the way they are for a reason. I'm not saying I don't want Spanish speaking people at San Diego or anything like that. BUT the rules are the rules, I did NOT make them so please keep your sarcasm to yourself. I just find it very disrespectful to be breaking the rules like this. You could at least be nice about it.

Ok, I'll apologize to Tokio, SHE created the rules, as you admitted lines before. Now YOU, you merely worry too much about things that are not yours to take care for.
Don't have a cow!!! Rules and Order make people work in harmony, Absolutism and Repression just make them run. Besides, it is old fashioned! it's mojo died with Hitler X-D
Really guys, let's make people WANT to visit this forum! ... AND Donate!!!! :-p I've been thinking... a festival for J-pop fans is approaching, what about I promote the paypal account for donations? I ask because I don't know how that kind of account works, is it safe to promote it on a massive way?

RE: Paypal Donations and project update
Okay, play nice.

Yes, everyone, please speak English in the main sections of the forum. Most people in the USA speak English and it's easier to follow posts if everyone is speaking the same language. Most forums have a language that they enforce.

But we do love our international brothers/sisters so we do have an international section where you can speak whatever language you want. You can even make up a language if you feel like it.

Also, I only speak English so if someone is breaking rules in another language (for example: harassing others), it's hard for me to know because I can't read the text. At the moment we don't have enough foreign language speakers to need another mod.


Now, back on topic!

For more donors you can try posting about it in the various livejournal communities. I don't think the forum has ever been advertised there so it's possible that there are many fans that don't even know about all these street team plans.

I think, please correct me if I'm wrong Tracy, that Tracy Coder posted it there. That's how I first found out about this forum was through a live journal post on either hydeist or l'arc~en~ciel.
I think part of it is just that people are plain broke. I'm maxed out at the moment and I still have things to pay for for my VAMPS trips. I haven't even counted merchandise costs yet either. These shows are costing all of us plenty unless you live locally and are only going to that show. We have the love in our hearts but don't have the cash in our pockets. But I still think that if everyone who was going to a show contributed at least $5 then the expenses would be covered. With that said, I probably should check and make sure I have done just that for the shows that I am going to, too. Icon_eek

I wouldn't like a massive promotion... it's my bf's paypal account and main email xD so please don't spam or anything ^^" he's lending me his account cause he can accept payments like he did for the glowsticks ^^! Just stick to people you know and trust and are going to the concert! thanks T_T!!

I second Hedelex, although my currency is just 1/3 of the USD, not like the Mexican Peso that is 1/10 ... it's still hard for a college student to afford all this. So my target was basically people that are already in the states! the vegas concert already has a lot of money (at least way more than san diego) @__@ and less people is going there.

So I know there's people out there reading this that keep browsing the forums but won't participate, but at the end they are going to be the first ones wanting to write all over the banner and take all the glowsticks.. so all of those free riders out there step up and help us out!
