    Recruitment

    Post  Manny on January 19th 2013, 8:20 pm

    Alright so the core members are here, but we need more to get this spanking new website some attention.

    The Recruitment Letter:

    Bungie.net
    Hello there, you seem to be a person interested in fanfiction, due to your membership in the group [insert group here]. Would you consider joining our fanfiction forum, http://halo-database.forumotion.com ? Yes this is Bungie.net, the original home of Halo, and yes there is a nifty group feature. The thing is... Bungie.next isn't all that user friendly when it comes to posting stories. We were originally a Bungie.net group, with 149 members, but due to the changes we decided to move out.

    Halo Database is our group turned forum we have for Halo fanfiction. We also accept artists, machinima scripts/ideas, videos, and even games (if you happen to make your own).

    If you do have the itch to ever write about something that ISN'T Halo, we have room for that as well!

    Feel free to join us, and/or PM me with any questions. Writing, drawing, recording, etc at this forum is not about how good you are at first, it's about getting better and sharing your imagination with others. Hopefully we will see you around!
    Halo Waypoint
    Hello there, you seem to be a person interested in fanfiction. Would you consider joining one of our fanfiction forum? Yes this is HALO Waypoint, but 343i has yet to create a group feature. Also, the community creations forum is usually flooded with maps, so there really isn't a place for Halo fanfiction to shine. We were originaly a Bungie.net group, with 149 members, but due to the changes over there we decided to move out.

    http://halo-database.forumotion.com is our group turned forum we have for Halo fanfiction. We also accept artists, machinima scripts/ideas, videos, and even games (if you happen to make your own).

    Feel free to join us, and/or PM me with any questions. Writing, drawing, recording, etc at any of these groups is not about how good you are at first, it's about getting better and sharing your imagination with others. Hopefully we will see you around!
    Where to look:

    Now I was thinking of going back to B.net and PMing our members who never posted, the members in that list of groups I posted (I'll dig it up), and going over to Waypoint and recruit some people there.

    Bungie.net
    Alright, so here are the B.net groups to PM their members. PMing there is easier now, since you can send one message to seven people at a time now. Choose the smaller groups if you wish to contribute but are busy. When you are done one of these groups, please post so I can cross it off.

    This list is a bunch groups centered around literature.

    0-halo-fanfic-0 (16 members)
    Am I Write (3 members)
    Fanfic (3 members)
    Fanfic Group Alpha (3 members)
    FanFicFactor (125 members)
    Fanfiction Conest (7 members)
    Fanfictions (11 members)
    Fictionars (3 members)

    World Builders
    A Writing Board
    Writers Corner
    The Writing Guild
    Writers Refuge
    The Xenomorph Archives
    Zealot Novels


    This second list was found in the "revisions imminent" thread. They were searched for using terms related to Halo, such as: "Covenant", "Spartans", "ODST", and "UNSC". Only the more "storyish" groups were chosen and/or those that supported fanfiction.

    Covenant
    Covenant Alliance
    Covenant Cival War
    Covenant of Hegemony
    Covenant Religion Home
    Soldiers of the Covenant
    The Covenant
    The Covenant Ascendants

    NEW ADDITIONS!
    The Advanced of Halo

    Rise of the Elites

    This third list is basically an attempt to gather all forms of media.

    Art and Stuff
    The Art of Halo
    The Fine Arts Department
    Creative Gamers
    Blue World
    Denied Machinima
    Dispatch Films
    Illusion Pictures
    Majestic Machinima
    Movie Makers Studios
    Musician
    Obey Clan
    ONI Studios
    Shell Shock Productions
    Skudge Cannon Machinima
    Triple C Productions


    Halo Waypoint
    On Waypoint we PM the members that have posted in the Halo Universe forums! Specifically the "Fanfiction Gallery thread" and the "Who is your Spartan?" thread. Great sources of like minded individuals there we could PM.

    Ideas and suggestions are welcome to improve this process.

    OP has been edited, with the crossed out names obviously done.

    Pick a group, call dibs on it, send one message to one member a day, and when you are done just post here and say which group it was.

    To send one message a day is asking for five minutes. If we all did this, we'd be done like ten (small) groups in a month.

    We could also invite people over from fanfiction.net.

    I have seen exceptional stories over there and even those who don't write Halo stories have a place here.

    Re: Recruitment

    Neither do I, however, there is one thing to consider.

    What do we have that fanfiction.net doesn't? How do we market ourselves to bring people over from there?

    Halo Waypoint, and Bungie.net now, aren't all that user friendly when it comes posting stories. Bungie has that weird post order, and Halo Waypoint doesn't have a group feature. Waypoint has a community creations forum, but it's always swamped with picture, gametypes, and maps.

    So, this forum is a lot better for posting stories than either of those sites. Fanfiction.net however encompasses ALL fanfiction, and is a website dedicated solely to fanfiction.

    Halo Database is now it's own site for fanfiction, but with a name like HALO Databae, obviously our main focus is Halo. The Grand Assembly forum is more or less for our writers who get the itch to write about something that isn't Halo evey now and then.

    So while there are no objections to this suggestion... The real question is: why choose Database over Fanfiction.net?

    If we can come with a GOOD answer, then we stand of chance of actually drawing people here from there.

    Yes, so it's March Break (or Spring break, depending on where you live) so lots of us have more time than usual on our hands.

    I'd like you to use ten minutes to pick a group, a small one, and message all the people there. Messaging is easier now that you can send one message to seven people at once.

    10 minutes, that's all I ask. The more the merrier they say...because at the moment only Vale, John, and Shadow are actually posting anything consistently.

    Jensen and I have picked up writing again, and I'm contributing to collabs to inject some life here.

    However, us six (Jensen, myself, Shadow, Hope, Vale, and John) cannot keep the site afloat forever. Panther and Ironman stop by every now and then, but still.

    Ten minutes is small investment to bring in more people who may contribute to the forum for months, maybe even years, to come.

    Guys it's summer.

    We have more than enough time on our hands. And so will any potential new folks. We can recruit, it's like 10 minutes a day tops.

    We gots to make the effort! We GOTS to!!

    Look, if you don't WANT to recruit I'd rather you say it straight instead of leaving me hanging here with false hope.

    Dude, I'll admit it, I've never recruited. 

    Not out of disinterest in new members, or some malicious neophobic agenda or intent. It's mostly just general laziness, misunderstanding where to look for new members, and presuming you guys were doing it already.

    Where do you want me to start?

    The OP has most of the info on where to look, and a copy-paste message for recruiters to use.

    B.net groups, and Halo Waypoint are our best bets. Neither are fan fiction friendly. Someone suggested fanfiction.net, but the marketing problem is what do we have to offer that they don't?

    Anyways, there's a list of B.net groups to look at. Just hit the names (they're links), go the members lists, and just PM each and every one of them. B.net allows you to send one message to seven people now, so if you pick a small group you should be done in no time.

    When you're done, just come back here and say which group you sent PMs to, and I'll cross it off.

    Fun Fact: I'm the only one, apart from Covee4Runner, that's ever recruited.

    Lots of new additions to the group lists. I supposed that if anyone were to go ahead and start PMing, it would be best to start with the additions to the first and second groups.

    Anyways, I throughly checked B.net for groups related to stories and other forms of art. I think I've squeezed out all the groups I can.

    In the future new groups may pop up, so who knows. But for now, the list is complete.
