Couch Tomato Posted July 9, 2005 Report Share Posted July 9, 2005 Not another message board! I know, there are tons out there already. And what I particularly love is that there is a fan community for every type of Clay fan. The diversity often astounds me. Although my main home is the Clack House, I'm one of those people that loves to check out all the Clay sites. Well it's actually my "job" and has been since I started Finding Clay Aiken. I play around in every Clay site before I add it to FCA and go back periodically to make sure ya'll are still there. So why a message board? I thought there was no way in hell I'd ever have one. But then I got a partner, Ansa, whose enthusiasm and creativity has really helped the site grow and now it seems a natural step. So, we're giving it a try. What is our philosophy? Being a Clay fan is all about FUN. This fandom shouldn't be a job or something that doesn't give you pleasure. Let's gush, and meet up, and trade pins and share experiences and listen to the voice and remember why we let this man into our lives. The Clay fan COMMUNITY is an active, giving, fun community. Oh I'm not overlooking the rivalries and bad feeling that exists as well. But you know, we have shown that we can do things together successfully. The pin frenzy has been a prime example. Thank you MommaJudy of Clayversity for getting it all started but also thanks to all the fan boards that have jumped into the fray with such gusto. But there's also fan driven initiatives like the concert ticket giveaways. Or watching as a fan board raises money to help a member see Clay in concert. And the ultimate sharing experience is the way we distribute the clack. And finally, about Clay, the reason we are here. He is the object of our AFFECTION and we would like that spirit to be reflective in your posts even if you're saying, what in the world did he do to his hair. If you are feeling an overall disenchantment, go somewhere else. Don't get in the way of our fun. We hope this board will become your second home, cottage by the lake, or weekend getaway. We want you to post about what your board is doing, share your initiatives, shake hands across board boundaries and loyalties and get to know your fellow Clay fan. This isn't a new concept. There's Claymaniac and the Official Clay Aiken Fan Club. But there's room, I hope, for one more. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
