  • An Old Draft for a Simple yet Effective Fan Site

    Posted on January 19th, 2010 Cahit Crcioglu No comments

    While digging into my archive i’ve found some old drafts for a fan site idea of *Nil Karaibrahimgil: On a january 2009 day (1 year ago), a quick and pure fan site idea forced me to prepare a draft that day.  These drafts explain the basic functionality, ideas and content of the project rather than showing the design and the final stage of the page skeleton. This project has never ever been worked on it after that day. Today i’m exposing those drafts, so anyone may be inspired by them, since there is still no such project exists right now. If you use any of the ideas on the draft to build a new project for a specific person or for centralized new web2.0 project, please let me know that this post worked at least for one.

    The key idea: A simple and pure site, which does not include any trace of social media or any popular services,  that just lets the fans send messages/photos/audios to the person they are fan of and let the artist know of the site and follow it. Generally this happens in the other way.

    *Nil Karaibrahimgil, as a Turkish singer and a musician, is well known with her creative works and ideas in music and media industry. You can visit her site at niltakipte.com or follow her from twitter where she frequently send updates.

    These days i see so many things that i’ve thought  years ago. In this post, you won’t find me supporting my incredible ideas. Every thinking creature in this universe has things in the mind, many of these may be nonsense, but everyone has an idea. You may have found something incredible, but probably someone else had already found it; it may not be existing yet. You may see many people, from your friends, family, tv,.. saying “I’ve thought about it!! I swear! I could do it!”. YES, BUT YOU DIDN’T.

    You have to be aware of the fact: You are not one in a million. ( ok, you are.. according to the point of view ) If you think that you find something (you can be sure that you are not the first one) and if it’s not yet done, do it! Don’t speak and stand still! Nothing is a unique, one-of-it’s-kind idea, but everything is undone.

    • Before facebook was even heard, i’ve made a site that is same ( except application system ) with the facebook and for the same purpose; it was a private site, only for classmates. After a while, after my classmates looses their interest in the site, i’ve stopped doing it, later we saw facebook. This was not a unique idea. Probably many people did similar things.
    • Before youtube was even heard, i’ve made a site that is similar to the youtube. Those days, it was a secret converting videos automatically for a web site. I had stopped doing it (it was working and usable), after i satistfied my desire for making a site/system kike that.
    • I’ve even made a photo sharing site that you can use everything from 1 page without leaving and everything is movable (drag/drop). Those days, these were not that easy. Today you can  put a jquery line to your code and do it in 5 seconds.
