You're wondering what's the reason we decided to start this again right?
So here's why, as some of you know already, mrmonkey already has tickets for SCANDAL's TB Tour on Sendai on September. This means that our only way of sending the letters finally has a concrete date. So me and mrmonkey and the staffs talked about it and decided to give a shot at this chance. Like Yuu said, we have nothing to lose but something to gain.
So how will it go? Well basically the same as the first time. We will be making the letter in any way we want and then post it here. You can do a hand-made one and then scan it and then post it here. You can also do computer-made, Photoshop, MS Word, notepad or whatever and then post it here. I think there are more ways and it's all up to you, just as long as it can be posted here.
There won't be a participant list like the last time, all SH members are allowed to participate. Participating in not just in saying "I'm gonna participate" but actually doing it.
We need many participants in order for SCANDAL to notice us. So I'm inviting everyone to actively participate in this project.
But wait, here's the BIG question... when is the deadline of submissions?
The deadline of submissions is August 31, 2010.
Once posted here and everything has been finished, mrmonkey will be the one to print those out and organize them to be given to girls or staff on the event. The event mrmonkey is attending is already on September so he'll be needing time to organize everything.
Last time, one of the problems was peeps didn't know what to write and kept asking what until nothing happened. You just have to write what you want to say to them and show how you love them, it's as easy as that.
Another problem is the language to use. we are SH, the first international forum to arise, so writing in English is absolutely fine. All of them understand English, just don't put super duper deep English words or phrases that might make their noses bleed. Writing also in Japanese is perfectly fine.
So here, I made a computer-made example letter, I did it for 20 minutes, damn drawing is hard. D:
btw that's just an example so I won't really say that in actual. This is the most simplest thing you can see. I'll see if I can make a better example.
Like I said above, it's all up to you on how you will make the letter and post it here. It's also up to you on who you want to address it to, either the girls or the whole band itself.
Other FAQs answered by mrmonkey
Q: If I do this in Photoshop, is there a limit to the resolution of the paper size?
A: Your letters will be printed at A4 size. I can do smaller sizes at request but not bigger. This will be the default.
Q: is writing in Hiragana a good thing?
A: Yes, do Hiragana if you can! SCANDAL will be able to read it more easily.
Q: Can we make one letter for a certain member and one for the whole band?
A: Write as little or as much as you like to one or everyone. Just write! You can write a letter to each member and one to the band if you like!
Q: Is it one letter per member?
A: Write 500 if you like. I don't mind.
Q: If our letter is in word format how do we post it, Just put into a post?
A: Yup, just post it here or PM me with it.

To everyone: you can write whatever you like! But be aware that the band's knowledge of English is pretty limited. However, don't worry if you don't know any Japanese. Even if you only write in English it will show your support. They know words like 'LOVE' and 'COOL'.
If you want to keep them in English you can try and make the sentences very short and simple. They will appreciate that!
Well that's it, hope I didn't miss anything, just tell me if ever. I'll just update this first post.
You can post here questions, suggestions or anything you want to share to help the project. The staffs are here to answer to your comments.
And please no spamming. D:
Again the deadline is August 31 no more no less, so we have 2 weeks to get this going. Let's just hope this won't be like the last Fan Letter Project.
