It's a mini-site, Luigi. You didn't make it.
UPDATE (5/5/2010) - The web server which was hosting my e-mail address went down a day or two ago!! As a result, I can not see e-mails sent to that address! I'm currently constructing an alternative e-mail address to submit your stuff to! Thanks again for your eager enthusiasm! (Update - Okay, so apparently, it didn't go down. Just the error page!)

Oh geez, all I did was make the single Mario comparison and now this whole board is suddenly filled to the brim with Mario references. Okay, those were all mine, too. I didn't know whether to put this under Fan Projects or Promotion since it kind of goes under both, but anyway...

I sat down a few days ago and made a mini-site for the VAMPS 2010 world tour, and I finally got around to uploading and registering its subdomain and with Tokio's permission decided to share it with you guys!

What's the purpose of this site and why the hell am I doing this? Because I'm an obsessed douche and probably need to do something better with my time like hanging out with friends or going shopping? While that may be a very accurate description, it's far from the point. The purpose of this mini-site is to give fans a small, easy site containing everything they need to know about the tour (including dates, venue, and contact info), where to buy merchandise, and a full, or as full as humanly possible, list of all fan promotional activities and fan projects. Not just from the United States, but from all possible nations.

Okay, I know what you're thinking, that's what this forum is for. Simply put, not everyone uses this forum. Furthermore, although street teams and other such groups encourage the participation of all users from around the world to participate, people who don't speak the native language of presenter of the project might find it difficult to participate, let alone know about the projects and promotional tactics. SO what I want to do is make a full base of knowledge of fan projects and fan promotional material from all different nationalities (with the OK from the person presenting them, of course) in English, so that it can spread to a larger audience, thus allowing more people to participate, and hopefully make VAMPS feel more loved when they see the projects for their own eyes!

Also, the VAMPS official website is very flash-oriented, which can be difficult for promoting with the use of a mobile phone or laptop (without high-speed internet connection). This site uses only HTML and two minor JavaScript codes (which act as background operations and therefore will not affect the download speed in any way). So it will make promotion MUCH easier.

My first addition to the site, once I get her permission, is H.P.'s fan book. (EDIT - Added!) If you have any project or promotional material you'd like to submit, feel free to tell me (preferably a download-able version so that I can host it on the site myself; trust me, it just makes things a LOT easier).

You can view the site here-
http://vamps2010.bizz.cc
(This link will redirect you, so don't fret if you notice the frames at the top disappear)

To answer some questions right now-
1) VAMPS promotional material includes, but is not limited to, fliers, banners, stickers, H.P. (designer) and Pink.Revolution's (person who had them made) pencils that Usagi Hoshino photographed, etc. It also includes strategies and other forms of advice in regards to promoting.
2) Fan projects refer to things that will be given to VAMPS.
3) On the site, it says that projects that can be put together without the aid of multiple users will not be accepted. I have yet to take that down, but fear not, that is NOT the case! After a bit of thinking, I thought to myself, no! That's not right! Allowing people to submit one-man/one-woman projects will give fans ideas and standards as to what to present VAMPS.
4) Like H.P.'s projects, they must be kept appropriate! I'm sorry, but I will not be accepting nude pictures of yourself licking a blow-up buddy of HYDE with an extremely explicit message underneath. I know that's REALLY tempting. Believe me, I've been there... okay, no I haven't. But please, keep it clean. *shudders* This is only ONE standard by which the term "appropriate" is used. Everyone here, I -assume- is over the age of 13 and fully capable of understanding the concept themselves, so I won't treat you like children and spell it out for you. (For those who are under 13, "it" is spelled "I-T")
5) Feel free to let me know when something is out of date or needs updated. I have a life... shocking, I know... so I can't always be on top of things. So a quick heads-up is always nice.
6) I appreciate all the help and suggestions I can get.
7) I will not be accepting any "CAN I HELP ADMINISTRATE?!" It's a really small mini-site. I don't think I -need- that much help. :X
8) The URL will work both with and without "www."
9) Yes, I am fully aware of the main page's text switching places and am currently working on a fix. For now you're just going to have good eyes and lots of patience. Sorry. =(

That link again is...
http://vamps2010.bizz.cc

Thanks for your participation and let's make sure that VAMPS has a rockin' tour this year!

EDITS
1) I probably should have made this clear before (although I have not had problems with it yet) that all promotional content you submit, if physically possible, will be open for download and distribution unless you instruct me otherwise. Please tell me if you don't want it being distributed across the interwebz before submitting. Thanks. (This mainly applies to videos as other promotional material is pretty much INTENDED to be spread around like such)
2) Any images and videos you send me will be scaled, and cropped if necessary, to fit the page and to make loading the page relatively quick and easy. Users -will- however have the option to view the images and videos in full size.
3) I know it may seem expensive, but I would PREFER it if you rip the footage from DVD's as opposed to download them off YouTube. I'll accept them regardless, but the quality is undeniably better and it would seem sort of hypocritical to be talking about support with all the TV station watermarks on it. XD (Though you are more than welcome to have your own watermarks)
4) Fliers can be on any format, but if you can make them into files that can be read on Adobe Reader or anything like that, that would be awesome (you know, that way I don't have to program a "Print" button).

That'd be great, thanks, and yes, as long as you are using it to promote, it will be added to the PROMOTION section (if you are using it for both promotion and as gifts, then it can easily be filed under both) - Also, the promotional section is essentially a resource material for people to use things, so if you want to distribute your pencils to the total of two people who will probably ever see the web page (yeah, I'm not too great at web-mastering), you can include details as to how one might get their hands on them. If you don't feel like that, that's cool, too. It inspires others (and not just because it's probably the only most original idea anyone's ever had for promoting a band, lol)

Actually, I should make that clear now that submission of content, depending on the content you submit, will be open for download and distribution unless you instruct me otherwise.

I sent you a PM ^^. If you could put a water mark with my nickname or something over it so they don't use the image on other websites it will be nice ^^

Hey, just to let you know, I created the designs for those pencils and Pink.Revolution on this forum had them created. Thanks.

Much VAMPS-love,

I didn't know about the designs, all I knew is that pink.revolution told me about them and sent them to me this February. She asked me to give them away ^^. She told me to spread the word around. I think I wrote about it when I first introduced the pencils and asked for ideas of how to do so ^^

Thanx for being so obsessed!!! I am excited n_n

:-D I will be more than happy to collaborate! (if that's ok) Also... I just went to the site and some words are hard to read because of the... impact? font in bold: VAMPS WEBSITES, MEMBERS WEBSITES, OTHER OFFICIAL, UNOFFICIAL. Maybe using a bigger size would be better?
VAMPS YEAR!
Get ready for 2010

NEW ALBUM, NEW SINGLES, 2 DVD's, WORLD TOUR

Actually, I have no idea why it's even IN that font. I can't even find the tag that says to put it in Impact (that is, aside from the tags atop where it says "VAMPS 2010 WORLD TOUR!!!" - I plan on changing it to Times New Roman once I find the tag. I -would- save myself the trouble and simply make the text bigger if Impact weren't one of those fonts that, when increased in size, REALLY increase in size.

Also, you need not worry about it being okay or not. Everyone is welcome to participate. The site is made from 100% fan effort. That means any and every fan is welcome to submit all kinds of content of any sort of all sorts of degrees.

What I'm mainly looking for, though, is fan projects in different languages translated into English (added with the permission of the presenter). So, those of you who are fluent in other languages, it would be awesome if you could go to the other street teams and such and ask permission for me to post the project. I would do some of this myself, but um...

Mon francais n'est pas trés bien. =|

With that said, there's not much I can do. :x - Anyway, I'll be looking for other people's promotional material and fan stuff, too.

Thanks for everyone's eager participation. ^^

I've added H.P.'s fliers to the Promotional section! More stuff would be appreciated! Not to sound rushy or anything!
