The letters were delivered successfully!mrmonkey1980 wrote:The mission was a success again. I spoke to a guy after the awesome show (much better than the last one I went to) and he said to leave them in a present box. I went there and they were the only gift in there. As soon as we walked out the present box was taken away. So the letters were their only gift tonight.
Again, a huge thank you to mrmonkey for all of his efforts with this project. Despite of the happenings in Japan, the project still continued and become successful in the end. Thank you for this second chance and hope there will be more chances in the future.
Thank you also to everyone who has participated and showed their love for the girls through their letters! This project wouldn't be complete as well if it weren't for us fans who are dedicated in showing our support to them.
Well that's it, see you guys again the future projects!
*Thread will be temporarily opened if ever anyone wants to say something.
Yeah, as the title says, I am now officially starting SCANDAL HEAVEN's second fan letter project!
mrmonkey will be attending the Sendai gig of the upcoming Dreamer tour. mrmonkey proposed to do another fan letter project and who wouldn't like that idea. So here we go again.
For the first timers, here's what we will do. 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.
For those who participated in the first fan letter already knows the mechanics. Yes same mechanics of doing the letters..
BUT there will be one difference this time, you can now choose to mail your letter itself to mrmonkey. Yes, the letter itself and not just picture, scan or whatever. If you choose to mail your letter, kindly pm mrmonkey1980 and he will be giving you more details on where to mail it. With this option not only letters but you can send pictures, gifts, etc.
But like I said that's only if you choose that, sending picture or scan of the letter like the last time is still allowed.
Here again is my oh so great example!
Again, writing in English is no problem, the girls can understand English and we are an international community so writing in English is perfectly fine. I advice to keep from using super deep English words, let's keep it simple so the girls will understand it easily. Writing also in Japanese is perfectly fine.
So here's the big question, so when is the deadline?
The deadline of submissions is May 6, 2011.
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 on May 08 so he'll be needing time to organize everything.
Here are the important FAQs that mrmonkey answered last time..
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.

2. Deadline for letters to be emailed and posted on the forum is 6th May!
3. Deadline for them to mail letters to me is 1st of May. They should post them no later than this or I will not get them. I cannot be held responsible for slow mail.
4. As before, people should PM and email me for my mailing address.
Everything else is the same.
Well that's all I guess, I'll just update the first post if ever I missed anything.
Deadline is May 6, so we have lots of time this time! Let's try our best to make more letters than the first one! The more the letters the more impact it'll bring to the girls and larger the chances we be more noticed this time.
Our goal is to show our full support and love for SCANDAL through these letters! And to show the power of international fans. So don't hold back in writing and write with all your might.
And please, let's be organized here and keep the SPAMs away, thanks!
Well that's all, Second Fan Letter Project... START!!!
