    Where to buy done
    Shoutbox: Can do, we need to figure out what we want to call the place first though so I can get the domain registered.

    Holy Konami, that was quick!



    A) Something along the lines of Shinki Cult?

    B) "Where to Buy" sounds good.

    C) We could go for a theme similar to Konami's official Busou Shinki website.

    A) MMSType.com, ShinkiCult.com, are some ideas. Maybe mix and match them? MMSTypecult.com etc.

    B)
    General Discussion (kinda like this TFW2005 thread)
    Busou Shinki Art (drawings/new photoshop creations)
    Where to Buy (webstores, auctions, japan auction)
    Selling/Trading
    Check out my collection/The "show off your Busou Shinkis" thread (pic thread)
    MMS figures:not Busou Shinki (Sky Girls, SOL, yoko etc)
    Battle Rondo (Setting up matches, comparing gear)
    Battle Rondo Help (Setting up, downloading, tutorials)
    Studio Diorama Creations (Self explanatory)
    Latest Purchase (may be redundant due to "Check out my collection)

    C) no idea yet.

    A) MMSShinkiCult.com ? Will probably attract more visitors by including Shinki in there too.

    B) GD, Art, Where to buy, Battle Rondo, Diorama Studio already there. Not sure if we need two Battle Rondo forums? If there's a need it's easily added but I've just got the one for now. Collection forum added. Buy/Sell is okay, I'm just leary about someone trying to blame me/try and make me pay because they got ripped off.

    Personally i prefer the busou shinki world, or even shinki world, but i dont think that BS world would work : P (couldnt resist)

    I also think that MMSShinkiCult.com is a little too long with too many repeating letters. Simplicity is best when it comes to web sites. And id be leary of using "cult" in a web site URL

    Yeah, using cult in a web site was why I didn't just register that earlier. :lol  Someone might seriously think we go around drinking Shinki infused kool-aid or something.

    what about something like planet shinki, or shinki palace... im really just throwin out random BS here...

    As for the layout and sub fourms, i think it looks pretty good. Id move the "off topic" stuff up a notch though.

    If anything people can always use ebay, you can give whoever your selling something to an ebay link by email. And you can even fudge the spelling of your item or purposely put it in the wrong category so only your buyer will find it through the link. "Japan anime girl toy with wings" = Eukrante lol. You can also set a huge price and then later adjust it through paypal checkout so no one else buys it.

    about the cult thing, just change it to CLUB/CLAN and your set. MMSTypeClub.com MMSTypeClan.com

    Ah jeeze, I'm stupid.

    Whoever owns the forum, can you approve my account? I axidently clicked 'Born after 1995' instead of before. Never register for something when you are about to fall asleep.

    FYI, I was born in 1985. <_<

    Those are cool names. Just 'Shinkiforum' would work too.

    I think you have way too many subforums for now. Our cult is small, so unless you want lots of dead space on there I'd only make 4-5 subforums. You probably don't want an 'art' subforum with just one thread (called 'shinki art'), right?

    As to subfora, i'd use 'General Shinki Discussion' (with a stickied 'where to get' thread), 'Other Collections' (for figma, revoltech or any other plastic stuff), 'Shinki Digital' (for Battle Rondo and Diorama Studio) and 'Off Topic' (for anything else.

    You can decide to split off stuff later once we have enough members/traffic.

    Hey too cool! I vote for "busoushinkiworld.com" or some variation, too.

    You have a comics forum in there already! Yay! So, after we get it going, do we get to complain about how many of our Shinki Comics have Transformers in them, and call it an "invasion" and stuff, too? :D

    One thing though, should we all move to the new forum, what will happen to THIS thread?

    Man, don't you sleep Shadow? :) 

    I'd love to help, but I'm spending the whole weekend writing a 25-page paper on neo-realism...bleh.

    anywho, I like BusouShinkiWorld.com the best. But maybe we should start with BusouShinkiLand, then move on to World. It would be a natural progression. Then, if we get bigger, we can go to BusouShinki64, BusouShinkiSunshine, and culminating with BusouShinkiGalaxy!

    but seriously, I like BusouShinkiWorld.com

    :)

    A) I agree that Busou Shinki should be in the domain name. I think using Cult might throw some folks off. Plus its a TFW2005 thing. Place, World, Realm or any variation thereof sound fine to me.

    B) From the looks of things, I think you've covered all the bases. :) 

    I thought about that too. I guess time will tell.

    Wow I missed allot! So now we are going to rock out our own site, pretty cool. Maybe more shinki fans will find it so the cult will grow. And whats this that we DON'T drink shinki infused drinks? Oh...

    Any way maybe a good name would be ShinkiFAnWorld?

    edit: ok I'm registered on the site.

    This is like when they move a TV show from its hit time/day.
    Next thing ya know, its cancelled from lack of viewership and doesn't even get a proper dvd release. Usually one of those 'best of' discs. I was hoping starting a wiki page would help eliminate this problem but I guess wikipedia doesn't do all that I had assumed it would.

    Once you are all gone, I will reform this thread into a communist shinki page where we will all only discuss the same shinki and we will not discuss another until everyone has the first! All hail Shinkunism!

    This is killing my focus. I gotta get back to my paper now. :)

    Personally, I think the best option is www.busoushinki.com. I really really don't think Konami will take any legal action. I mean, Gundam.com has been a private domain for a real long time now. Maybe, at some date in the future, Konami might buy it from you, but I think that's choice #1. My second vote is for BusouShinkiWorld.com.

    I agree with Chaos. If anything this might wake up Konami and get them to realize there is a US market for shinki here. But if your still hesitant, You could always go with BusouShinkiUS.com And yes i know some of you guys arn't from the US but if we shift the focus to a US shinki market it might make it easier for you guys to buy shinkis so we both win. If the community grows and Konami sees it, we should be better off.
