It seems that my little joke post about the future FMA fans has become a hit. Glad to see that. But some people did take serious on notes on what we are going to do come this November 6th, once Fullmetal Alchemist starts airing.
Because, after rhat night, almost everything in the community becomes a spoiler. And this has been a very active community. There are quite a few ways to make it easier for newbies to have fun with the Hagaren fandom, without neccesirally, being spoiled 50 episodes in. There are a few ways to do it. This really should be the communites deccision.
- Go through the entire community, and put everything under LJ-Cut. This will be very hard, and if not impossible to do.
- Wipe the community clean November 5th. Delete the community, and start it up again.
- (My preference.) Is start "fm_alchemist2", or something along those lines. It's not elitism, but, a few of the veterans of this community, who don't have a problem with the noobs (I'll start and moderate the community if need be.) and the discussions there. If noobs post here, we will have a written post included in this communites info, explaining that this community has been out since the beggining of the series airing in Japan, and there are many spoilers around, blah blah blah, and then post a link to the other community. I think that will give a nice, fresh and clean place for new fans to discuss the future of FMA, while we can post icons, not neccesarlingly having to post cuts, and not having to spoil by talking about the manga either. Eventually, after Adult Swim, the community can become one again. How's that sound?
Feel free to comment with critiscms and comments, and then maybe we'll start an LJ-Poll to see what measure we want to take. Thanks.
