ARE YOU The First H!P Newbie Promo Champion? [NOW OPEN]
« on: April 10, 2012, 10:46:30 PM »
H!P NEWBIE PROMO CONTEST
Begins: As soon as you've made your pick
Ends: In October

What? How?
Get to know the newbies of H!P better in a friendly promotional contest! The player (that is you) chooses a H!P newbie to support for the period of the next six months. During this period you keep up with news concerning the member you've picked and post updates to the forum, this way taking part in the contest and letting others know new things about the member you chose.

It's recommended that your chosen member is somehow featured either on your avatar or signature. If you need help with that, just ask. :peace:

What kind of updates can I post?
Naturally, the more creative you are, the better for everyone!
- If there is some specific video featuring the member, you may consider linking it or posting screencaps and pointing out something in particular that your pick does in the video.
- You can post blog updates featuring the member in relevant threads.
- If she has a PB coming up, try to keep the news thread updated with preview images.
- If she appears in a group video, you can post a comment that highlights her in the video especially.
- Small picture posts are allowed in the member threads, but don't make it a spammy habit.
- Use 2ch. There are stories, images, random things that don't normally get posted on English speaking sites. Of course, you'd need to know a little Japanese for this.
- If you find a Japanese fan blog dedicated to your pick, you may also find something worth posting there.
- We have a lot of random threads like the H!P Meme thread - if you ever find inspiration to do something goofy and creative, go for it!
- There are fan translations that not everyone has the time to check or read in entirety - you can pick out some interesting bits and post those in appropriate threads.

Of course, whenever you take something from another site, give credit :heart:

It's worth a note that this contest takes place throughout the H!P section, so think outside the box and don't limit your promotional activities to your chosen member's thread. :3

Have fun with your promotions! :cow: It's a marathon, so don't worry about not being able to post all the time.

Whom can I choose??
Anyone from:
Morning Musume 9th generation
Morning Musume 10th generation
S/mileage 2nd generation
+ Special pick: Karin Miyamoto from H!P Trainees (because she's working somewhat regularly)



One player can choose only one girl to promote, so choose wisely!
The same girl cannot be picked by more than one player!
Keep in mind also that there isn't an equal amount of material available of each member.

Help! I'm late/new here! Can I still join??
As long as it's not like, September 25th 2012, yes, you may still join. :lol: Just reply to this thread.

How is the winner decided?? What does the winner get?
Since it's a community effort, there will most likely be a poll where we vote each other. :thumbup
The prize has not been decided yet, but most likely something related to H!P.

The picking for members opens in this thread on Friday 13th, 9am GMT+2 (that is 2am in NY, Thu 11pm in LA, 5pm in Tokyo).

Members that have been picked so far:
Morning Musume:
Mizuki Fukumura - Slack
Erina Ikuta - Chibs
Kanon Suzuki - muppet
Haruna Iikubo - Aluexander
Masaki Sato - oaxiac

S/mileage:
Rina Katsuta - shirenu




If you've been a lurker so far, this would be a good time to join ;)


This thread is now open for questions and suggestions!!

So is this only for the 2nd Gen S/mileage newbies or are we including the 10th Gen newbies too?
Apparently reading the forum from work via VNC client isn't the greatest idea.

@shirenu-san
As much as I adore Riho, Haruka, & Karin...

I don't see how one can be "creative" being a 'news updater'
unless you mean those random threads like the H!P Meme thread you mentioned

YEAH! Great idea shirenu. if you wanna show your passion for your faves, you just babble and tell everyone what IS UP wit em. I LOVE THIS IDEA! I wish I could participate, maybe just steal ERR credit and reupload from Ayumi Shibata's facebook cuz it's translated already HAHA! just an example. Lookin forward to the entries!

I don't see how one can be "creative" ...

And with those quotes, no wonder MaxMcKay fails to understand what JPHiP is all about. :rofl:

I guess it doesn't just have to be news updates. Maybe you could record yourself singing a song about why your pick is awesome, and link that to a thread? :P
It's Airi time, bitches!

Let me just clarify it's not just about posting news. I mentioned that because it's the easiest place to start from when thinking about what to post.


You can always wait a few days or weeks before signing up to see how it's done by others :P

OR you could just not sign up :3

Well guys it has taken me 3.5h to load this page, my Internet is shit today, I'm surprised if this message goes through

But YES this thing begins today, Fukuchan is officially yours Slack, unfortunately I don't think I can edit the first post now but I'll get to it eventually...

I am snatching RINA KATSUTA myself

She's not my favourite, in fact she's not even in my top 20, so this will be amazing :heart:

What the- organizers can participate? :? Guess it's alright since is decided by community poll.
Means they're eligible for the prize(s) too?

Btw seems it's one h!p newb per participant, 1st come 1st serve basis

This is a really cool idea, and the hardcore fans have had 24 hours to claim their favourites. So now it's time for the rest of us to join in!

So with that said, I pick Masaki with her oh-so-adorable genuine smile!


It's Airi time, bitches!
