Now before I start, I would like to state that I can not take the lead on this campaign, for I don't have the time.

I was on the MySpace, and was going to adjust my mood, and I just couldn't find the right word for happy. Then I realized, "Hey! Shiny isn't on here!" My suggestion is to send MySpace admin a battalion's worth of waves campaigning to have shiny added to the list of current moods. This could result in Firefly awareness like the 'Verse has never seen before.

They do have "giddy" though. That should count for something.

If you click on settings at the bottom of the page is a link for contacting myspace. Click that and on the page it gives choose "other" and then "feature suggestion". Click submit and then type out our Shiny request to have Shiny added to the Shiny mood drop down list.

Thanks for the info Dave. Do you know if these messages to the MySpace accept html? So I think this is going to have to be spread beyond fireflyfans. We need to get this out to all the major Browncoat sites in the 'Verse. Anyone belong to any of these? Also, we need to think of wording and a general template we can all use. I can knock out a rough draft and post it later. Then y'all can give me some feedback. Or if someone else would be wlling to do that...

This might just work.

Jien taduh guay!

It was just a box for typing text into. No idea if the reader on the other end will display html or not. Anyway it's probably best just to use plain text as html just annoys people where it isn't needed.

I'm thinking that a few short lines to the effect of, "please add shiny to your list of moods" in the words of each individual person would be more effective. We certainly don't want to look like we're spamming them. While we do want them to know that actuall people want that feature.

That seems great. So, all that's left is for us to start spreading the news. What are the major Browncoat sites? Also, bullitens and if you belong to a MySpace Browncoat group could work. Another idea to toss around: do we do this on throughout time, or pick one specific day?

I think just as we think about it. I already sent my request in for instance and got a couple form e-mail replies back on it. Not sure if an actual human being has actually read my request or not yet. I think doing a specific day thing would be a bit spammy. We don;t want the techies just ignoring us because we drop a buncha e-mails on em all at once.

As for other forums http://www.serenitymovie.org/browncoats/forums/index.php?act=home
has a bit of discussion. Also there is the original board here http://forums.prospero.com/foxfirefly/

Right off hand I don't know who else has active forums for Firefly/Serenity specifically.

I missed this shiny idea.
I like it and will send in a request.

Besides the two boards Dave listed there are quite a few more.

Would you like a list or shall I spread the word as I go around out there?

The BC groups are a different matter, they usually don't like receiving stuff like this unless it comes from an actual member ( my humble experience whilst we did the Browncoat Signal Corps )so it would be better I think if they picked it up from the boards.

ETA: Send a bulletin with the suggestion thru your myspace accounts. That'll reach fellow BC's and others nicely.

I say spread as you go. Me signing on too a buncha sites just to post this might be a bit presumptious.

great. FollowMal, could I get that list? If I have the time, I might be able to pull together a quick banner, and maybe we could add the said banner to sites like this and the MySpace. So I'll work on that. Anyone know a good free gif/jpg animator?

You think you know--what's to come, what you are. You haven't even begun.


Custom mood can now be typed in on myspace, so we can be as shiny as we please :)

You may say I'm a dreamer. But I'm not the only one.

Just the other day, I switched my mood to 'Browncoat.' (To accompany the Jedi status on there.) I never thought of 'shiny' though.

Kudos!

Randomly, and rather amusingly, why not slip in a few obscure ones like 'moonbrained' or 'Miranda!'
