Pocky-Chan Makeover

This will be cross posted everywhere so people can see.

POCKY CHAN DOT INFO is about to get a decent makeover.

I'm sick of the main site looking dull, and so boring.

The forums are getting a tweak, and everything else will look spankin' new hopefully soon.

The main site will have drupal taken down, and slowed to a halt and put in the trash
(GREAT PIECE OF SOFTWARE, but the theming is way too hard)

The main site will be coded with HTML/XHTML/CSS, and will feature brighter bolder eye catching colors with a mix of Jrock, Fashion, Anime and culture from all over asia!

The theme will change month to month or as i get time to change it.

If you want to help by finding graphics (like scans, etc) - just throw me a comment here!

www.pocky-chan.info wont go down main-site wise until everyone has been notified and things are nearing completion to fix.

Thanks so much for being there so far!

Introduction from a veteran J-pop blogger

Hey folks,

Since no one else introduced themselves to the community since Reiko made her first post, allow me to have the testicular fortitude to lead the charge (which is a hell of a lot better than some troll posting "FIRST!!!" at PunkNews.org or wherever).

My name is CJ Marsicano and I am a writer and former musician (I still play for pleasure but not with any groups since 1996 - it's hard to try to rock out like Black Flag when you're in a shitty redneck down that would rather copy Lynyrd Skynyrd). Some of you may have seen my posts about J-pop at Stuck In A Pagoda With Motoko Aoyama between April of 2006 and August of this year, when I made that blog static and opened a different blog, The Groove Music Life, last month. I also run a worship blog for Reina Tanaka of Morning Musume entitled So Hot She Shits Fire. I am a strong advocate of having Japanese artists make their music more available to Western audiences, via both record labels and tours. I am presently trying to complete the first draft of a novel about Japanese idols called Here Is The Wonderland. I can also be found on MySpace, Facebook, Last.fm, Twitter, and Plurk.

Welcome to Pocky Chan Dot Info

Our goal is to become the newest, and most well rounded but not trying to step on anyone's toes (whilst trying to be the best we can!) Social Network. We want to encompass anything we can, mostly Asian and Japanese culture of course, but it won't just stop there.

This is a good way to make new friends, and learn new things - or just plain look up fun and funny stuff! (OR to drool at Myv, Gackt or anyone else... Aiba hiroki or Araki Hirofumi maybe?)

Don't forget the ideas that started this - Friendster, Facebook, Flixster, Bebo, Myspace and many more commercial sites. And just like facebook and many others we're building from the ground UPWARD. Networking is just about that - NETWORKING. So we want you to Network with us!

Tell us all about your recent trip to see the Beijing Olympics, or your favorite chinese food takeaway shop on white bear ave in St paul MN, or your local fish and chip shop in britain!

Anything and everything you want to share with us we're proud to have you come on board!

See what i mean by different and new?

We are however looking for some programming web development and obviously some Web designing help . Drupal 6 is all CSS theming, so if anyone's interseted in helping please do!

I'm reworking this from the ground up, so as you can see we've had a lot of issues getting everything working. I'm trying to procure a few people like to help get this place working properly.

Let's give this a great big "GANBATTE NE!" and try and get this thing running by the end of the year!

The forums are up, there is a bug tracking system in place - and there's a gallery now. All three are seperate from the main page for now because because because!!! I can't see any reason to crash the main thign and reinstall everything from scratch again until i can sort things.

So join - Introduce yourself - and be a part of the founding group!
