This is pretty cool... I checked this morning and 111 people are watching the FaceBook group I created for Faction. That's some attention if I've ever seen it! I'm excited to see what everyone brings to Round 2 of Small Press Idol 2009, but I'm more interested to see what the fans think of what we're bringing to the table. Fans will help us get from Rounds 2 to 3 and 3 to 4 as much as the judges will, so if you haven't already done so, please go and sign up... If you're on FaceBook, sign up for the Faction Forum! http://www.facebook.com/groups.php?ref=sb#/group.php?gid=55926073990
Below is a note I sent out to all of the members this morning...
I appreciate the eyes and ears watching the project and look forward to the grand unveil in just a few days. Once again I wanted to throw out a few links to everyone so you know A) How to sign up, B) Where to sign up, and C) Where to go to vote starting on Wednesday, April 1st.
a. How to sign up - The process itself is very easy, but I created a little process on my personal web site to show you how. You can download it at ~ http://www.geocities.com/thelastbard/Faction/SPI-JoinForums.doc
b. Where to sign up - You can go to the DimeStore Productions web site and click on the link at the top left of the screen that shows sign in or sign up... no big deal there or to link directly to the sign in area, you can go to ~ http://www.dimestoreproductions.com/signup.php .. Please keep in mind that they ask for address information and stuff, but that's just because it ties to their store, too, so if you end up ordering anything, it's in their system. They will not bill, spam, or harrass you for anything unless YOU decide you want to buy something.
c. Where to go to vote starting on Wednesday April 1st ~ If you go to the DimeStore productions web site, there's a button for Idol on the left hand side. When you're in there, just scroll down to the "Round 2" area. Your other option is just to go to ~ http://www.dimestoreproductions.com/content287.html#Round2 ... Once you are there, you will see a list of projects in alphabetical order... Just scroll down to "Faction" and on the right side (column 4). there is a link to vote for the project. Note: The link will not be active until April 1st. You have to be signed up on the site to be able to vote so they know you're a real person.
Once again, I appreciate the help and look forward to seeing you all on the DimeStore site showing your support!
