There's a topic for avatar requests: http://www.bobafett.com/boards/viewtopic.php?id=64

As for stock icons, we could... but people tend to want original avatars. If two people have the same, in the history of our avatar-available forums (2/2006-Present), the newer person is usually called out by the community here and asked to change it. It's a case of social design. We didn't plan that.

Thanks for the ideas!

Case in point. Come on, man. You're on a roll today.

Any ideas? See the site map below.

Yes, I get all the e-mail that comes to aaron at bobafettfanclub.com.

We tend to not open the floor to idea dumps. I think that's because we have plans for this site, a vision, and we act on it, rather than just talking the talk. We do:

1. ask people their feedback about our existing or improved feature destinations,
2. form beta testing groups (one of which has seen the new image galleries and another group has seen the new Fettipedia), and
3. have a volunteer job post page for finding people we really WANT to help grow the site

That said, questions, comments, concerns and ideas (like content contributions) are always welcome. A lot of our news comes from e-mail leads -- and our news is top-notch here -- and we appreciate that. Our MySpace has also been a great lead for getting leads and interviews. And we have a handful of original web comics being posted shortly.

As for topic starting, how about starting the topic with one of your ideas? Otherwise, this topic might be too broad and just you and me... spamming. wink

Mel, I know you'll miss the hunt. tongue

Draco, very welcome. Glad to improve the usability.

ARC, not sure what you're talking about, but OK.

Devil, funky indeed. Just elevating the feature since it was hardly any work on my part. The search engine for this board is pretty slick and very fast.

Miba, exactly. Newbies and regulars alike.

Stranger, no worries! smile It wasn't very obvious and we've got a lot of regulars who know when topics have already been started.

I've e-mailed the contact on the press release, since *cough, cough* this story was going to be broken on BFFC News. Good find Sadriel, always on top of the SW.com stuff. tongue

I see it: the triangle chin-piece, the rounded goggles over the nose, the inverted-"v" nose plate... Aside from that, there are certainly several video game character references to Boba Fett and, for that matter, several characters in history and art that Boba Fett references as well.

You can absolutely help us keep that up-to-par. Shoot me an e-mail and we'll do it.

We'll handle the credit/permission, as we do for everything here at BFFC. Credit given where credit due. smile

I don't believe we have this song in our MP3 library. We have a collection here of all kinds of Boba Fett-inspired music. It's one of the most popular destinations, thanks in part to MC Chris' track. Contact me with an MP3 and I'll put it up.

As for the video, not lame. smile

Just to connect the dots for everyone, I met up with Mando_sniper at C4 and posted a little bit about him and shot some photos of the costume:

http://www.bobafett.com/multimedia/fiction/

As some of you know, BFFC has an original fan fiction library, where hand-picked writers were invited to be published or re-published on this site. Unlike the boards and fanfiction.net, it hasn't been a free-for-all of UGC (user generated content), for better or for worse.

We've dabbled in a higher-end fan fiction web app, but it's not bullet-proof enough for us. But our fan fiction is in demand and the feature can't keep collecting dust.

So, we've dusted it off. Slightly. It deserves a reprinting. And, since the library was recently "StumbledUpon" by that social network, we're cleanin' up shop.

Feel free to discuss. The microsite, linked above, will be cleaning up throughout July 2007.

Volk-Ordo, "BFFC" and "As You Wish" are fine. And there's no "rights" purchase here. We're playing by the rules and keeping to ourselves.

As for self-made stuff, we could design a print-friendly "membership card," as PresidentJuggernaut first asked. The banners haven't been a big hit, since I bet a lot of you don't have web sites. We'll consider the money clip.. wink ..and keep thinking of (and acting upon) ideas.

SciFifreak90, awesome. smile

draco, the CafePress stuff was a bust. We can do better. I think we'll just go for higher quality stuff. Because this is BFFC. tongue

Closing this topic. Please make specific requests only.

The boards are not meant for image dumps. BFFC's new image galleries, which some of the members here are beta testing right now, are coming soon. But you know that already.

Devil Girl, Fett II and Manji, we linked to a better-than-adultswim.com, better-than-youtube.com link about a week ago at http://bobafett.com/news/tv/robot-chick … t-episode/ to superdeluxe.com. But, if we're not hosting it, chances are good stuff like that disappears quickly.

Consider subscribing to the news RSS feed since we track down only the best sources for BFFC News.

Fett II, yes. Jeremy, who has been involved with Ask Jeremy, has been invited.
