Title: Project-iM@S Google+ Page!
Post by: Scotty on November 28, 2012, 06:26:23 pm
Trying out a new thing. Let's get a little more social.

If you're new to G+, every time you want to share something with the page, be sure to mention Project-iM@S in the post with a '+', after you add the Page to your circles, of course.
I'm not really sure where to go with this, but so far, I guess the page can reshare interesting posts you guys make, and just ask random iM@S questions and then you guys could have a small conversation within the comments. Feel free to suggest ideas.
I haven't added any managers to the page yet, and I'm most likely going to transfer ownership to Yunabeco when it's possible, and if he feels like it. For now, I'll consider adding managers if I see them being active and responsible enough to handle the task.

Project-iM@S Page (https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/107490559295938541532/107490559295938541532/posts)

Actually, you're a perfect candidate for manager of the page, since you're active on G+ somewhat. Feel free to make the Page as active and vibrant as it needs to be!

Err... well, I'd certainly be one to ask lots of stupid random questions! But...

I've never used G+ before... how do I post on the wall, or "circle"?

You just have to make sure you're sharing your post with the page and it'll pop up on Project-iM@S's stream. From there, it'll get re-shared by the page, provided it's worth re-sharing of course.

Activity is pretty low right now, hoping it becomes more active, but that ensures that almost anything iM@S will get re-shared by the page.

So let's say you put up a picture of Chihaya, and share it with Project-iM@S, I or any other manager of the page will re-share it and other people who have Project-iM@S in their circle will see it and discuss it if they feel like it!

There's actually a huge Facebook group with almost 1000 members, although it's not associated with the forum/created by anyone on the forum that I know of.  I'm not a big fan of it because people have been misusing it.  Such as trying to get votes for a maid cafe, spam liking posts/pictures from years ago, posts about how Idolm@ster should be mixed in with Sonic, etc.  There are regular pages you can like on Facebook IM@S related, but they all differ in what they offer.

Google+ IMO is better because you can upload GIFs and add hashtags to posts, allowing you to search for more content on Google+ that isn't just contained on the one page.  So it's useful to get a page like this going at least as a satellite page to service IM@S people who perhaps have a G+ account but not one here on the forum.

From the G+ Page:

Google+ has just rolled out their new Communities feature, making it much easier for like-minded people to get together and talk about the stuff they like. This will be a much easier way to hang out and share with #idolmaster  fans, so look forward to it once the option to make a community becomes available!

Looks like Google+ has become a more viable option! We just need to wait a little.

Seems like the page did a decent job of informing people about the downtime.

Started up a G+ account. Will figure this stuff out in a bit.

We should do a hangout on the G+ community page sometime.  Who's up for the idea?
Title: Re: Project-iM@S Google+ Page!

Oh, a hangout sounds like a cool idea, especially with my place finally getting our own internet tomorrow. I'm up for it.

I like the hangout idea.  Maybe once there's a bunch of episodes of the puchim@s out, do a marathon session of it or something in the hangout.  I forget how many people you can add to a hangout though...

ALSO I did some minor clean up on the page I didn't realize I caused LOLOLOL, and attempted to add a new banner.
Title: Re: Project-iM@S Google+ Page!

Oh yeah, don't like how it saves banners to the scrapbook. Messy stuff.

Completely understand.

Okay good it's not just me.  I swear you click on it and it's absolutely fine, but on the page it's like someone poured water on it in spots.  I tried different file types and settings the first time I changed it with the Xmas banner, so I'm not sure what exactly G+ wants from me.  GOOGLE+ IS CLEARLY A FUSSY WOMAN.

Sorry I didn't say good-bye, www.  It was getting really interesting towards the end of the hangout.

Hope we get to do this again!

I'm sorry about my little brother on the Hangout earlier and how I wasn't much in the conversation because of it. I don't really have a life because of him. Hopefully the next time will be different. It was actually pretty fun though.
Title: Re: Project-iM@S Google+ Page!

Haha wasn't too bad (can't speak for Scotty though).  It was fun overall.

Oh no- I completely missed the hangout!  :-[ Well, we'll have to do something like this again sometime, right?

Hmm... I don't suppose anyone here has the tools to maybe... stream gameplay of THE iDOLM@STER 1 or 2?

Oh, I'm looking forward to it. Though, I hope my little brother doesn't make me end up not being in the conversation like last time.

Might participate in the Hangout, though if I do it won't be for too long. I have to perform as part of a woodwind trio the next morning for a gig.

Aren't I cool, joining then quitting immediately. I kind of owed a Skype call with another group, so... I'll take a raincheck on this one! Sorry, but maybe I'll get a webcam for next time. ;s

NOOO! My little brother was constantly turning off the computer an hour ago on me because I didn't buy him cookies, so I was unable to join, and I completely forgot about it too! I feel bad now. I'm sorry.
