Default The Ark - TBM Fanmail community

Hey guys,

the second, best day of my entire Life happened: I met TBM at the Amphi festival.
I was very lucky they did this autograph session (and that I found it within all the usual chaos that comes with such days). Of course there are many reasons to meet your idols, but I'd say the most important ones are to exchange thoughts and feelings and to show support and affection. There are many ways to do this, fan-mail and fan-clubs among the most old fashioned ones.
So I thought: Why not combine the two?

And this is The Ark.

Here is my idea: You write fan mail, you create fan art and then you digitalize it (pictures, scans, pdfs, you name it). You upload it to The Ark's Facebook group (or send it to individual members if the content is confidental) and the next time one of them has the chance to meet TBM, they hand the whole collection over on USB sticks or SD cards.

"Who's gonna pay for them?", you may ask and for now the answer is: Me.
Transfering money via PayPal is easy and hey, I got a job, I can afford 10 $ every few months.

"Why do we need this? We can send stuff via Social Media!", you may say and you are right.
I guess some of you have even become friends with the band and talk to them on a regular basis.

Other fans might not have been so lucky though, other fans might not even have met them once, and being noticed among a swarm of daily tweets and posts is not so easy.

On the other hand: When something is handed to you that someone put their effort in, something you can touch and feel.. How much more likely is that going to get attention?

Seriously, give it a thought.

Furthermore, this could be a thing that runs both ways. If they like to and can manage, they could return their answers on USB stick/SD-card and Ark members would then re-distribute them to the senders.

So basically, this is an opportunity to help other fans share thoughts and feelings with TBM while they do the same for you. It's minimal effort, it costs nothing you were not going to spend anyway, it's an awesome way to connect with other like minded people.

What do you think? Care to join?
Send me a PM or answer below. I'm open for feedback and discussion.

Thank you!

This would've been great for me to use a couple years ago when I was writing up a fan based TBM Musical. I really want to get back in and rewrite the aspects of the story while changing characters and all. So let me break it down, that way I get it.

TBM fan makes fan art/ write letter/story---Story/letter/art is uploaded to Arks Facebook Fan page---An Ark group member uploads content to a usb----Ark group member gives usb to TBM during next concert/meet up

This is basically the deal, yes. However, there has been no further resonance to this so far. I still think it's a good idea, but pretty useless without participation. I'm gonna wait a few more weeks, then take this thread down, if nothing happens.

Thanks for your interest

I really love this idea! Personally, I've never been to a concert yet although I have been lucky to get the band's attention a bit over social media, which means so much to me although it's not much.

I'd be very much interested in participating in this, I wish more people would be interested too! :/

You haven't?! Aw See.. that's one of the many reasons I had this idea: There are lots of fans who didn't get their chance. At all.
Well.. If you want join, just send me a PM. Maybe it'll inspire others!

Well, you "get" the chance to submit your thoughts for the "price" of giving others the same chance. That was the idea at least, but there was no resonance, basically because I think the fans don't really need this kind of networking.
Now, let's just let this thread die in peace, shall we?
