I am a member of a few other detachments who do trials (Jedi)/Infiltrations (Underworld) etc and was wondering if Galactic Senate ever thought of doing something like that? I realize it's probably much more difficult to do this as Leia is a face character and "there can only be one" (insert ominous theatrical voice here Jinn vs maul ) but I was curious if that is something we may be doing in the future? This would include handmaidens, Padme's et al.

If not, totally fine but like I said, I wondered. Very Happy

It's something we've sort of considered but haven't come up with a clear plan to make it work. If there is a lot of interest and energy in this, we can see what we can do.

I'd be willing to assist with this if you need help. How do we go about seeing if there is interest in something like this? Post a poll or something similar?

I think this thread itself is a good place to start a discussion.

In a slightly different form, an idea that the Senatorial Council has been tossing around is getting people to share more trooping photos with the RLGS Facebook page.

A related idea I had was a silly "Pretty Pretty Senator" contest for silly/epic royalty photos.

It seems to me that the goal of the trials programs is to build community and encourage people to troop, and there could be other ways to do that too.

Oooh! I love the photo idea. Perhaps that could be a good place to start and then if that picks up steam, move forward with a detachment challenge? Maybe we can do the photo of the week or something and post on our Facebook or Instagram accounts?

Photos of the week would be something I'd love to get to. It may have to start more slowly than that. The last photo campaign we had only turned up two photos in three months. Granted, Facebook has continued to grow in use since then.

How can we go about getting this started? Might be great to do a holiday themed picture of the week event leading up to Hanukah, Christmas, New Year's etc.

We can try and see if we can get response to a general silly/funny photo thread. If that goes well we could try other things, too. Smile

I admit I'm clueless on this front, but how to folks feel about Instagram? Is that a better place than Facebook and these boards to share photos with RLGS?

How about we create a page here for people to post the photos and then from there, link and post the photos on Instagram and the GS Facebook page?

I personally dont use intagram at all - dont have an account either. Most people seem to be on FB and everyone has to be registered here.

As far as uploading images, Google Forms does have the ability to have the user upload a file. That could be a start in collecting photos from everyone for this campaign. It sounds like a fun and engaging activity.

Facebook/Instagram (since they're own by the same company now) and/or Twitter may be your best social media outlets. They are the largest 3 and possibly easiest to navigate.

Another idea would be to have a "scavenger photo hunt" series of sorts for troops. Perhaps have a generic theme that lasts through out the month/season and users submit their "hunt" (photos of them). For example, if during the holiday season, take a picture with reindeer antlers in your costume, or a big holiday bow, etc....

I really like this idea! How can we get it started? It's the first of Novermber so perfect time to get this rolling. Very Happy
