Default Appeal to All: The Clubs

this was in my first post in the other thread and i dont want it to get lost among the chatter...

I have a question regarding Clubs. When Kupika is restored will we need to create the club url again? And if so, is it possible to

1. make an informal policy/request to all members to use the URLs/names that were being used before....and more importantly....2. Can you make it so that club creation temporarily won't cost any kps? (you didnt say so but i assume that such systematic things such as a persons kps and stats are preserved in the offsite storage)

This may be a tricky thing but it should basically be like a 2 week or at least 1 week moratorium on charging kps to create a club..otherwise some of us who had a lot of clubs will not have enough kps to recreate the clubs we had.

While I'm on this subject may i take a moment to appeal to all Kupika members. The loss of the clubs is a good thing in that there were far far far too many clubs with only a few members in them and which were never active. Do not have a club just because you want to be an owner of a club. We do not need 10 clubs that are basically on the same subject matter. We do not need 100 different cyber & porn clubs!!!!! If we make only one or two clubs on the SAME subject matter and encourage people to join those clubs then their memberships would swell up and the clubs would be fun and active. It is better to have a couple of clubs that are full and active then 20 clubs that are dead with only 4 members in them. So Please Please Please, think very hard before creating a club, swallow your pride, work together with someone else who already has a club in the subject you are interested in. Ive made several clubs on kupika, a few of which were very popular and I know that having a club is one thing, keeping it active and interesting and worthwhile is a much different thing.

Along these lines HINA, is it possible since you will be rebuilding some now, to either do it automatically or at least make a new kupika page (a "Kupika Club Directory") and include a link to it, in the club creation process so that club owners/creators may REGISTER their club, put a brief description of what it is about with the name and url/link to it. In this way we can see what clubs are created on a single directory page and can avoid creating clubs in the same subject matter or too many of them by at least seeing what is made.....and (this will be controversial) perhaps even limiting the number of clubs that may be created/registered of any given specific topic. For example allowing no more than 5 cyber clubs. No more than 1 role playing club per specific subject, No more than 3 clubs dedicated to the same celebrity, artist, musician, band. etc.?

.

Again, please...can all the role playing people just discuss among themselves or go along with whatever role playing clubs are made and try and consolidate those efforts so theres not a million such rp clubs with no activity..

can all the cyberrers just pick one or two clubs and join them instead of making your own club...

can all the justin bieber fans just have ONE justin bieber club.. one twilight lovers club and so on and so on...

The creation of a Kupika Club Directory either by some automated process or at least voluntarily by club owners (as all of us club owners are apparently going to have to start fresh) would very greatly improve kupika.

I thinks clubs should cost MORE, without a brief free-for-all to get old clubs up and running again. People would be more... wary? to start a club and that would allow 'Pika to be a lot... clearer? Idefk what to call it. Anyways, hopefully it'd be running faster. And with a brief free-for-all, wouldn't a bunch of complete crap clubs be made in the process? "OFGDKG FREE CLUBS OGM GUISE I'MMA START LIKE 7 ANIME ROLEPLAYZ!"
jus' sayin'.

yes which is why this is a call for restraint and maturity....

without a free club creation window...those of us who had many clubs...and all but a one or two of my clubs were pretty active..then we as club owners wouldnt be able to bring things back to the way they were before...its bad enough that we lost the contents of the clubs...

my Writers n Readers club was very popular and had a lot of great poetry by the members...for example..

thats bad enough to lose the contents...but to make us repay 20 kps or whatever it cost to remake the club woudl be totally unfair..and in many cases not possible if we dont have the kps...(actualy for myself i probalby hae enough kps myself -assumign they are restored- but i was thinking of others)

.....

and btw avoiding 7 anime clubs is the very point of having a Kupika Club Directory or some process of official registration of a club.

The clubs should have to be registered or at least encourage to register.

Ideally there would be a limit....no more than say a few clubs on a particular anime/manga, etc. but that may be asking too much.

but having some kind of directory would hopefully push people into consolidation....

of course people have to be mature and not run off and make clubs for teh heck of it..that was the problem in the first place...every person even if youtold them..theres already a Ouran club...would say.oh but i want my own club...and then only have a few of their friends in it...

that is the problemin the first place..people, frankly immature teens demanding selfishly that they have their own club on something when there was already a perfectly good club in that subject matter...

there should be like 3 of each...no more..3 writing clubs. 3 photography clubs...3 oekaki clubs and so on...

Oklahoma land rush....let those who register first get the spots...

and if not..then at least a voluntariy effort to try

you dont agree with what? thats the point. if we have to recreate the clubs which is what Hina said i believe, then we need to have it be free for a time period and also we all need to agree to only create a club if we owned it, and using only those names/urls that were used before..

some of us had links to our clubs in our profiles and some clubs are known by their names...

it would be unfair to make us pay again the kp price of club creation..

How about we all stop crying over it?

I'm willing to give people kp to start up clubs for a good cause.
Heaven knows I have plenty.


Fresh start means making the kp on your own for the new clubs.

Don't whine for free clubs please when a million of us are hoarding thousands upon thousands of kp.

I had a club called the websurfer's club which was popular at first but soon died.I was wondering if clubs with multiple topics are better than single-topic clubs(such as "Animal Roleplay" vs "Girrafe Roleplay") Maybe instead of clubs for various singers(Justin Bieber fanclub,Ashton Kutcher Fanclub,yadda yadda yadda) There could just be one club like "Singers' Fanclub" or something,ya know. Less clubs that way.
