Ok, so, we're all over the place in opinions, but general consensus of course being: we want DQ coming Westward.

So this thread is designed for one purpose, and ONE PURPOSE only: as a means for concentrating any and all information for current and future campaign efforts.  I will do my best to keep this updated when as I can with addresses for social media, physical buildings and for email.  Including in this will be links to any campaign related stuff, such as art, youtube videos of various forms, news and when all is said and done, even official releases on various platforms and media outlets from Square Enix, or Nintendo, or Sony, on any Dragon Quest release or potential release.

 

Please feel free to use this database to write letters, emails, link social media such as twitter, get twitter accounts to tweet to, hopefully I can find some google+ circles...tumblr still needs to be added, as does deviant art accounts.

 

If there are any other accounts that should be added here, any news stories, fan videos, blog posts, media, fan art related to campaigning for DQ, gamefaqs forum posts...email addresses to SE employees that aren't within these databanks.  Problems with various email addresses, or links to twitter accounts.  Please feel free to post in this thread so I can update accordingly!

I'm a little confused by what this is.

 

Are you having this topic be a database of info?

Share this post


Link to post
Share on other sites

No, my plan is to see how the community feels about this, and to see if anyone is willing to undertake this responsibility, or if a number of people are, and if so, to delegate several topics to split duties.

 

Say one person gathers all email data, one person gathers all media data, one person gathers all news data, one person gathers all twitter and social media data.

 

All posts within said threads would be to provide further links, which the designated thread controller would appropriate copy-paste into the main post, under the correct heading.

 

So if someone say found an additional twitter account for say, Koichi Sugiyama, or maybe Akira Toriyama actually does have one, but it's not under the name Akira Toriyama (it wouldn't since the only one using that name writes in spanish and posts spam, and obviously falsely claims to be THE Akira Toriyama of DB/DQ fame).  That would then be copied into the twitter section, under accounts, and under " Square Enix , Nintendo , Sony "

 

 

This way we don't need to keep digging everytime we need to get at stuff.  So maybe Dwaine gives a direct link to the infamous bookshelf picture.  That would be put under Promotional or News, whichever the person handling the duty sees fit.

 

If I have to be the one to do this, then I'd have to make a separate thread with rules at the top as to what can be posted in the thread and what cannot:  Links only, no commentary, just explanation for what the link refers to.  The problem for me is that I can't open a number of links, and that list grows monthly as this computer's protocols are more and more outdated, and I havne't exactly established myself as a writer yet.  So I'm in no position to afford a new computer anytime soon (don't ask me to get government assistance, I'd rather a bullet to the head).

If this works out, one thing I could do is put links on my 2 FB pages and then pin them.

 

Example: lets say Dwaine maintained a topic on SE Twitter information. I could provide a pinned topic on each page with a direct link to Dwaine's topic, so my FB people could easily access it.

 

Another great resource I have is that the founder of Opreration Hero could likely do the same. I'm fortunate to have him as a friend on Facebook (as in his actual FB profile). He frequently shares my topics, which has allowed us to have great outreach.

 

One issue I've encountered is this: there's multiple ways to contact SE, from Twitter to FB to Youtube. Having an organized method of allowing people access to these options has not been easy. Unfortunately, I simply lacked the funds to do this when I had Edenverse up. Incidentally, with the site gone, I decided to re-brand the old Edenverse FB page into "We demand more Dragon Quest Outside of Japan". I did this to not have our European friends feel as though we have forgotten them. I'm now maintaining both pages in a similar manner.

 

 

We have a great resource in Lord Roto and Saigan in the youtube community. Is it possible we can try contacting HCBailley and see if he'd serve as a pitchman? Granted, he's LPed much DQ, so that's certainly a help. His following is quite large. Wouldn't that be awesome if he served as a pitchman!

Maybe it might be better if I just start an official thread on this, but only if I get an aok from Woodus indicating it would be stickied.  That's part of what I'm looking for.

 

After that I'll just take links provided by the community, and place them within the various subcategories.  I may as well just start by putting in data I know exists inside the categories I've already written above, then copy-paste it over to the real official database thread.

 

I'll call it the Campaign For International DQ Databank

 

Any other name ideas that might be more obvious and easier to understand the purpose of such a datadump?

 

As per your FB stuff, sure man, just link me the FB pages.  Though Im guessing you mean Operation Edenverse and Operation Hero's.

 

As per your idea about contacting HCBailley for some support, help, and to possibly act as a spokesperson?  Well, that's totally independent of this, except that it would mean another link to add for Fan-Based promotional stuff, but YES, DO IT!  I say that would be a great idea.  Well known personality who plays games, actually likes DQ, and has traction would be a major benefactor to the cause.  Plus he's not annoying and is both pretty easy to listen to, and relatively quick to commentary and interesting.  So absolutely!

That's fine, but that's almost a separate thing altogether, however it would be good to have a sizable portion of clever quotes for both DQX and for DQVII, and maybe somewhere to link to them?

Ha, I figured out the trick to change a youtube link to a URL...just embed the BB URL code in the link itself, now I don't slow to a crawl when I load this.

 

Put up Saigan's video talking about Horii's blog, and the really interesting video link from a fan called Mischa that's just the type of stuff I want to see!  Though I wish he would have directed it to SE instead of Horii, since I really don't think Horii's the reason we're having so much trouble.

there's a small community sharing Dragon Quest fanart and screenshots over at tumblr, talking to one of them (metalslime something) he mentioned that he browsed woodus! I think tumblr is a good venue for the game, since I've seen some of my followers that I didn't expect to like DQ commenting or favoriting those posts.

 

A couple anime shows reference DQ as well (I think haikyuu! recently did something like that) so a lot of people who didn't know about the game could see that those weren't some "generic rpg" references, but about an actual series of great games

Tracking down more Square-Enix email addresses.

 

 

I take it back, Nintendo is even harder to find email addresses to.  I can't even find old original OpRainfall posts WITH those email addresses for the letter/email campaign.

 

Wow...none of that was saved?  Yeesh.

 

Ok, so Nintendo has no known email addresses for anyone.  Not their PR managers, not their presidents, not even for personal contacts for concerned fans.  Only the Web contact, which is for EVERYTHING and anything from customers, even though it's core purpose is for support.  I do know they DO contact if any requests are made about games on a Nintendo system.  Checking to see if europe has their own, but I see no harm in Europeans contacting the NA support since it isn't even declared as NA, but as Nintendo period.  Though i'm still looking.

 

I have to plug in Awesomeinblue's links at some point soon.  Hopefully they'll load.  I had some problems with tumblr earlier.

 

I found some more Nintendo emails...all general, nothing specific to any individual in the company, but I did find one related to asking NoA questions about games.  That might help.

Nice, thanks Woodus for the Pin, or whoever of the two mods.  I changed the name to better reflect what this is then.  I need to alter the first post later to be less about the idea of it, and more focused on what the database is to be used for.  I also need to remove tweets...seriously impossible to keep up with anyway, but instead I'll change it to a Hashtag composium, split by games, any general hashtags for DQ to the US will be placed under multiple games, so you'll see doubles.  I have to get going, but I did finally manage to put in what the old operation edenverse FB page was turned into...FB was giving me all sorts of weird problems last night.  Also fixed the link to Operation Hero.

 

I need to go over a few things to ensure they target the right people (links that is).  Also if anyone has any other lists of stuff, like FB accounts, Google+, twitter, email please just dump them in the topic and I'll copy-paste up above.

 

I believe I so far have all the twitter accounts for everyone on this site who wrote theirs in either the Tweet campaign thread, or here, if I missed yours, please let me know, or if you want yours up there, please let me know.

 

Also I'm going to hold off a bit on news, get as much social media page links as I possibly can first, then focus on scrounging through the feed links for pertinent stuff...I think I'll string together in a quote or something, multiple news stories over the same exact thing.

Awesome.  I'll rewrite the main later tonight.  I'm so tired right now I'm going to take an hour (or two) nap, then eat.  I think I may see about entering the contest.  I can always draw a template and rework it with all the various characters.  Just have to get some time on a friend's computer and it may happen :)

 

Man this is giving me goosebumps.  I'm just hoping some of the old den members that haven't been around in awhile come back for this.  Where's Slime Master for instance?!?  Perfect time for his witty one-liners and generous words, I'm sure he'd join in at least.

 

I hope Sk8er creates something.  Man has some hidden talents he's only begun to explore.

Alright, I added a few more videos, did some link checks, added in another twitter account to another member of Operation Hero, and the first tweet...I should track down more tweets for retweeting, even now  (I don't agree with the tweet I displayed however, but it's there for anyone who wants to push the notion of a boycott...just note these never work, even if you can get thousands to agree, it just doesn't work...you'd need people to write enmasse to SE that they're boycotting solely FOR the purpose of DQ in the US, which is very unlikely to do, as the word passes some will simply boycott for other reasons).  I would really appreciate anyone who could help copy-pasta down Facebook links to various pages like IGN.  I'm having major problems loading stuff.  Half the time it puts it under my own FB name.  Half the time it doesn't even show anything in the address bar, no matter how often I refresh.  Very annoying.  It's a protocol issue though, can't help that atm.

Heard back from Nintendo today. All the person replied back said was that my comment has been documented and made available for the other departments there at Nintendo. They also said it is ultimately up to Square Enix. I'll continue on with emailing Square Enix until I get  a reply back.
