| (updated 5/25/15) IT'S AN UPDATE! Gotta get back on this bandwagon. It'll take some time to get those other pages back up to speed but I'm going to make sure this page and the Schedule page are kept up.|
If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen one of my trademark, multi-tweet, think-out-loud schedule extrapolations based on the first release of Nick's June schedule. Basically, it said that Aug. 22 might be the most-likely date for the resumption of new episodes of Dino Charge. I'll go into the full details of that on the Schedule page.
Thought I'd try putting a full week schedule up here on the home page, maybe making it easier to get to a once-a-week update. But I'm not sure I like the look. It's a bit TOO cramped for my taste. Might just go back to four days and get a bit more committed!
During my sabbatical, the last new ep ("Double Ranger") dropped in the viewership numbers from a very nice number for "Sleeping Zords" and it DID come after the one-week break for the Kids Choice Awards. Is that a reason? Probably not. I'm just very concerned with the frequency of viewership drops after even a one-week break from new episodes.
This section stays on the main page because PMC is the epicenter of the fandom experience, even when it happens every other year. And that won't change. It's locked in -- Power Morphicon 5 IS ON FOR 2016! Two ideas: 1) Alpha 5 should be part of the artwork identity of PMC5 (Aye aye aye!) and 2) Since 2016 is also the year for the MMPR reboot movie, there should be some sort of major tie-in with PMC5. The ultimate would be to have PMC in July (yeah, a month earlier) and have the actual World Premiere of the movie be associated with the 'con. That's a high bar to set, but it doesn't hurt to go for something big.
And, more than a year out and probably at least six months before any sort of badges go on sale, my status for attending PMC5 is GO!
It's an exciting thing to be part of Saban's Power Force, an official group of fans who help promote the show. If I can help the franchise in any way, I'm more than happy to do so. I've known the efforts of many of these people for years and became aware of others as a result of being in this group. Then, got a chance to meet a good many of them at Power Morphicon 3. We each have a different approach and address a different niche of the PR fandom. It's a cool thing to be a part of and I, like the others, will help maximize your interest and enjoyment of all things PR.
On Feb. 7, Saban Brands reworked PowerRangers.com to be Dino Charge-centric. In that rework, the Fans section -- including the Power Force page -- was removed. TEMPORARILY. There's something else in the works that will be all about the fans, with the Force included. Stay tuned.
To see the contributions of each of the Power Force members, click here for a page of links to their sites, blogs, etc. Everything PR is covered there. Fury Diamond already has this updated with the nine new members.
Follow me and get PR-related news on Twitter. When important Rangers-On-TV news lands in my lap, that will be the first place I post it. The address is pretty simple: www.twitter.com/BurgundyRanger. Click the logo to go there.
I also have a Facebook page -- but don't really plan to use it all that much. (Too much work!) Click the logo below in the Links section. It's there so I can, if needed, friend people and like companies to have access to their news. If you want to friend me, I won't mind. Just don't expect much activity!
