I dont think Super Soaker is going to do that anymore. After all, they have completely alienated their fanbase, and they are more worried about money at the moment.

Since Cmdr Bob is the oldest member and has the highest legal status, he and Buzz Bee could effectively sign a business deal to make H2O Commanders the official Water Warriors fansite. Of course, we probably won't see this happen for a while, as Cmdr is no where to be seen.

Actually, H2O commandos was just a "select fansite" I think. The Aqua Nexus and iSoaker.com recieved the real awards.

In that case, then if any water warfare site becomes the official fan club of the Water Warriors line, then it will be a historic moment for this community.

I'm pretty sure that, if there is one, WW will make one itself, not make another site its official fansite.

That would be cool, especially if it had a forum!

That's quite possible since Big Bee has learned well from his experiences at WWN. If he does start forums, he'll probably use them as a marketing program that's costs nearly money and taps into the immense reserve of internet users that will provide people interested in water warfare.

While it'd be cool if Buzz Bee Toys set up a forum, I know forums are tricky things to manage well. It's one thing to have a forum run by a private individual for general public babbling... it's another to have a corporate name specifically associated with a forum. Video game developers often have forums, but I find them more 'fan-boy- based as opposed to being true places for constructive criticism or interesting future directions on a product line.

Of course, time will tell how things develop. 'tis an interesting time we're in, indeed.

But the main part is for Buzz Bee Toys for having privates and people that will make the forums for him. Also, he probably needs someone to tell him to make forums(maybe he already knows).

Its been frequently suggested to him, he said he didn't want that much input from consumers until Buzz Bee grew some more.

Most companies prefer to use email as a way to contact its customers. In a forum, you have to censor out alot of "non biased" information. Plus, I like it better that Big Bee hangs out over here instead of another place :laugh:

Something to think about: We could volunteer to be the official Water Warriors fan community if Isc permits it and basically be free marketing for Buzz Bee Toys, spreading the word about new Water Warriors soakers to new members and others interested in water warfare. Comments?

edit: 100 posts, simply overshadowed by my old number

Hold on there a sec, were jumping the gun here. :p Remember that Buzz Bee Toys is a smaller company, and there not ready to spend million of dollars on something like this yet. Why waste millions of dollars ons omething that you know may not work? The Fandom itself is not enough to spread word on new blasters, let alone I get pummeled at school if i preach about water blasters. Still though it was a good thought, but IMO the farthest they will take it is a commercial.

if we get any chance of getting a sneek peek of the 2005 line we will have to put it in a mem bers only forum, but if we put it there then if rumor gets out hundreds of people will register as a member to see them and leave forever, then we'll have hundreds of empty member accounts! NOT GOOD

Yes, not good at all. We'll get too many people for Isoakerforums that it's going to brake down like WWN, we do not want that to happen. And even if we put it in the members only, what memebers only forum would we put it into?
