Brainstorming Topic!

Postby Jeremai » 23 May 2008, 20:38

Update #2
We've got our own sub-forum! Although I am the only one able to create topics, it still gives us a place to collectively work on the magazine.
All voting will be done in this sub-forum, along with discussions of process work and other things.

Make sure other Geri fans are aware of this project if you think they would like to get involved! Spread the word, but please don't trash. :)

Update #1
Okay, we've come up with quite a few ideas, and the topic is going on 3 pages, so I'll keep posting an updated list here to inspire you, and prevent you from repeating an idea. :)

Possible Names:
Halliwood
Geriwood
Passion
GH
Jewnowwhaddamean
Just Geri

Possible Pages:
Why We Love Geri
Timeline of her Career
Each "Era"
Letters from Fans
Bluebell's Corner
Reviews (albums and singles)
Fun Page (crossword, quiz, sudoku etc)
Fashion Page
Page 3
It's okay if you...
Famous Last Words
Horoscopes
Mock Awards
Funny Quotes
Small "About Me" quiz for fans
Fans dressing up as her
Jewnowwhaddamean

Keep up the good work everyone, remember that all ideas are welcomed and appreciated!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The project has been chosen, we will be creating an entire magazine in honour of Geri! Names and content are still up for discussion.
The idea for a magazine was chosen for several reasons. For one, it's an easy way for everyone to make equal contributions. Also it can be printed by any of us as for easier delivery to Geri. Finally, it will be great fun!

This is what we need to decide now:
What should we call it?
What should be included?
What shouldn't be included?
Which images are we going to use?
Should we also add in something about Bluebell?
What will be our general layout?
Anything else you can think of!

Once we layout the entire magazine, I will be assigning everyone who wishes to help a job. There will be a small application process (for example, if you wish to illustrate, send me an example of your best work), but this won't happen until a little later.
These jobs include:
Editor
Journalist
Critic
Illustrator
Photo Editor
Page Designer

Anyone is free to participate, but those of you who continually go off topic will be reported to the admins for trashing.
This topic is to discuss details about the project, not to debate whether or not Geri deserves this.

I want to partake alot in this. I think its a great idea. I think we should get our own forum just like the MC people did once this is all under way so that we dont get alot of spam involved. Obv nothing negative should be tolerated. If we all work together this could turn out amazing.

I was actually thinking "Halliwood"!
Other names I considered were "Passion", as Geri is our Passion.
Or something sleek and mature like GQ, but we could call it "GH"!

Also, I was thinking we could have album and single reviews. We could try to be fair, but I bet we'd always give her 4 or 5 stars!
And interviews with the fans, so we can get our personal feelings out to Geri!

I was thinking an ad for Becel Margarine with just a naked picture of Geri with a piece of toast! :D

Love the ideas. This is fun :$

-Bluebell's Corner (which will consist of an article on the Notorious Blue?)
-Why we love Geri (Probably should make it a literal LIST of things)
-Letters from fans (Probably should limit 200 words per person)
-Time line of her accomplishments
-Tits appreciation page
-A page for each Era
-A fun page with a crossword puzzle about her life
-A Quiz, "Which Geri Halliwell era are YOU?"

i think allowing everyone to design their own page is a good idea once we decide on how were gonan go with the mag, the general format of the mag and those who need help can get help, fan pages should be distributed throughout the mag ugh im getting tons of ideas, we should get the other Jer to help us too he did lots of things in the geri forum back in the day, the calender the fanzines

"Page 3" is a British thing...the tabloids always had (The Sun still does!) a "Page 3 girl" with her boobs out.....Geri would get the connection straight away. she'd probably even laugh! ;)

Oh how it irritates and upsets me to see it spelt like this.

It was, is, and always has been "jewnowwhaddamean?" as per Geri's "official" blogspot ;)

As for the magazine idea, I think it's fun. I like the "which Geri Halliwell era are you" idea too :)

I like this magazine idea. Perhaps you can glue me to the magazine and ship me to her house

Anyways it all sounds good, I think Geri would really enjoy reading it. My brain is pretty fried so, I cant really contribute.
