The Gift: Explained!

Postby Jeremai » 28 May 2008, 00:13

Just in case people don't know the general aspects of the gift, or don't wish to read the long brainstorm topic, here is the deal.

The gift itself is a magazine about Geri.
It is not like the scrapbook, as that was about us (the fans).
It is a completely digital project, everything is done and submitted electronically.
A complete digital copy will be available to Dendeners once the first one has been receieved by Geri.
To help out, you must pm me, details can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=186&t=165250
A few things will be voted upon, but I will choose which pages will be included, those details are released after the application process has ended.

Anything else you'd like to know? Ask here!

So this IS gonna focus on Geri and not the fans? I thought it was going to mostly feature the fans and throw in Geri articles for fillers. Why should we focus on her? She knows whats shes done, I dont think we need to remind her. Summaries of different eras and special accomplishments can be articles throughout. And special cute articles can be written such as "Bluebell's Corner" and "Jewwknow..". But we should focus this on the fans, fans perspective on things. Letters from everyone who wants to send them, and everyone should be able to design their own page with there letter and include w.e. they want on their page. If someone needs help designing it then those in charge of that can help.

If we know anything about Geri, it's that she's all about herself. :p
This idea came from something I did in a class in high school. Everyone in the class had to write something about you, something positive (an accomplishment, a quality, etc) so that whenever you feel down, you can look at it and remind yourself of good things in your life.
What I'm getting at is, she an look at it and think "Well, I guess not everyone though Desire was crap" or "What was I thinking wearing that!".

That is, not to say, that fans will not be included. A couple pages are dedicated to the fans giving shoutouts to Geri!

I agree with Jubilee (as Piggie would say... it rhymes :angel: ), I think it would be nicer to do it more about the fans, she knows well what she's done, wore etc. Or maybe we could do, like, half the magazine about her and half about us. If I was a celebrity, I'd be more interested in reading what my fans think about my career, than a summary of it. ;)

Hey, it does!

And I think there's going to be both. I think it's mostly going to be cute little articles and with a couple quizzes and reviews in there, but I think there's also going to be a page with a line or so from each fan saying how Geri's helped them, you know?

You will have to have a specific job, and everyone who applies before Friday is guarenteed a job, either the one they applied for or the one they are best suited for.

Application details are found here:

Ok, this is a big concern for a lot of people as I can see, and I didn't want to give too much away, but I'll share ONE minute detail in my creation. :angel:

Spoiler: show
Every single page will have a fan's personal writing on it, commenting on the content of the article, complete with their name, age, location and a headshot (if provided). In most cases, those who worked on the page in question will have this privilage, though we may switch things up a bit.

Good luck in getting her to look through it. It's one thing to pass it on for her... but she or her people will probably do as much as take a short glance.
Innit sad that you can't just turn the computer off?

I have absolutely no interest in this but I find it amusing that it is basically just a gift from the people that are selected to work on it. And if they are lucky enough, their name(s) might be included somewhere therein. Maybe you should re-visit this idea..

I will edit my previous post per Dee's warning below : I agree with Rob. The whole gift seems haphazard and unfocused -- I just don't see why it's happening, why now and what it's all about.

please don't get into personal attacks.

1. Everyone who applies for a position will get one.
2. Everyone who works on the magazine will have a spot to tell Geri how much she means to him/her.

Nice idea, but she won't appreciate it... So don't get too excited about it.

Who says she won't appreciate it? It's a gift, everybody should appreciate gifts. But then it's Geri, so well, who knows.

People are so negative towards Geri...why automatically assume she wouldn't appreciate it? She's bi-polar, but she's not that much of a bitch.

It sounds like such a good idea :D I'm already excited, lol. And why wouldn't Geri appreciate it? I'm sure every celeb would love to get such a gift from fans.

My one friend acts kind of like Geri in that way, sometimes she's great, sometimes she a mega bitch ahaha.
Putting the time of the month aside, those kind of people are often in the best mood as the weather is warming up, let's hope that has an effect on Geri. :D
