Welcome to the "Have You Met ___?" Event!!!
You all may wonder a few things...
...what's this event about?
...can I win something?
...did they take this from the show "How I Met Your Mother?"
But, seriously, let me explain:
"Have You Met ____?" is an event where users who are stans of lesser known artists get the opportunity to promote their favorite artists for a whole 2 weeks on KpopSource. This promotion would not only include a banner on the main page of the site, but also a dedicated thread to the artists made by an events member to lay out all the basic information of your artist along with a playlist (for various platforms) and other great things!
Sounds amazing, right? The best part of this: this will be a routine event (similar to UOTM) and will be happening every two weeks with new artists displayed constantly on KS!
1. In order to be considered for your artist's promotion, you will need to make a thread in the K-Chill section. This would be an appreciation thread about your artist with some basic information (this does not have to be extensive), unique reasons why other people should stan your artist, and any other things that you feel like would be appropriate. I want to highlight this: this is a competition in the end, thus, the prettier, more organized, and more interesting the thread is, the higher is the chance of winning.
2. Fill out this Form below to submit your nomination:
Link to thread:
Initial Thread or Repeat submission?
Please send this to the google sheets form by clicking here.
Afterwards, the Events team will sit down and evaluate all of the submissions and pick a winner for the next promotion period based on the quality of the thread and presentation of their artist!
However, as you can see by the last option: in the case that you do not win this promotion period, your thread can be reentered at a later time for another chance to win the promotion. We added this option as we have realized that those who put extensive work into their threads may be disappointed by having to start over. Thus, you can simply reenter your thread again later if you choose to not redo your thread.
I also want to stress that all google forms submission will be deleted once a winner has been presented. Thus, it's essential that you either submit or resubmit your form if you want to be nominated for the next promotion period.
1. A custom banner made by the Graphics team that will be displaced on the front page of the site.
2. This banner will be linked to an informational thread that will be written by an Events team member with a brief introduction of the artist, a mention of the latest comeback and their debut (with MV's embedded into the thread), and a link to the artist thread if available.
3. Playlists will be made with the debut song, comeback songs, and recommended b-sides. This will be prepared in Spotify and YouTube formats which will also be linked in the thread!
4. Lastly, your appreciation thread will be linked as well!
2 weeks split into this:
Days 1-5: Submission Time for the Threads made by You!
Days 6-13: Events Team will vote for the Winner and prepare for their Promotion
Day 14: Promotion of your Artist starts which lasts for the next 2 weeks
(at the same time, this cycle would start over again immediately the next day after a winner has been announced)
Next Submission Period: Publishing of this Thread until September 11th by 11:59pm KST
Next Promotion Period: September 18th
