[DISC] YunJae Everlasting  
Y u n J a e E v e r l a s t i n g : where true love exists

YunJae Everlasting was created 3 years ago after much discussion from ~YunJae Heaven~ topic in Asianfanatics forum (which was created by Callie or now known as ebulli3nt at flight seventeen.

After a year, YunJae Everlasting was handed down from Genna (amazing creator of Yunho-shii and Xiah-shii forums) to jaeholic and myself, lilxinyue. You could say our attempts were somewhat futile--many fans who found out about yunjae everlasting then either didn't know how to use a forum or just weren't appealed to a forum over all. We tried to change tactics, get things going, but even then things didn't seem to work.

Today, the forum is kind of left in my hands. From yunjaeeverlasting.com to yjeverlasting.com--I honestly don't think I want to go down the road of another fail!forum again. I know many are participating the return of yjeverlasting after it disappeared way back in July. We were working hard, building it up again, and even going as far as trying to think of ways to get it going, but then we fell into a slump. And after long discussions, decisions, and thoughts--and advice from moon1084 , why not let the fans decide what they would like to see instead of us using our dying brain cells to figure out what they want?

We're not exclusive like YJPetch, able to give awesome packages and gifts like YoonJaeloveBar, or even be able to give to charity like YunJaeLove forums- we're just YJeverlasting, a forum for international fans. We try to be like them, but we're not. We can't give you exclusive news, be able to give a collection of photos with our own logo, we can't do much at all actually. The best we can do is majorly try to clarify rumors, take past photos/news/rumors and give you a deeper insight of who and what YunJae is and how this fandom came to be.

We've tried the forum route many times, but after doing forums for awhile, it just doesn't seem to work out much. We have ljers who aren't used to forums- we have fans who don't even know what yje is. I want YJeverlasting to be one of those places where fans can turn to, especially international fans who support YunJae--we all need a place right?

You can say this is a way of me trying to keep YJE alive, and I'm not going to lie, I am. YJeverlasting has this chain on me--I love the place that it has created for me...I want to be able to share it with you, but I need your opinion and ideas to make it work. I'd like for you to participate in creating a place that is meant for you as international fans. Feel free to comment with ideas/opinions and also answer our poll!

Poll #1647907 YJeverlasting?
This poll is closed.

What form would you like to see YJeverlasting as?

Livejournal Community
Blog (ex. SYC, DBSKknights)
Forum (ex. ONETVXQ, Yunho-shii)
Fanlisting (ex. jaehoyunjae.net)

If you've chosen 'other' in the previous question, please do tell us what else you have in mind

Thank You!
lilxinyue, YJEverlasting Admin

EDIT: If we do make a community here on Livejournal, I do have to say wouldn't it quite rival jaeho_yongwonhi which already acts as YJEverlasting that is located within Livejournal?

EDIT 2: Despite support for yje becoming a community on livejournal, we felt that jaeho_yongwonhi is already a representative of that and will continue to be a representative of that. therefore we've agreed on opening YJeverlasting as a website/blog. Please do look out for it :) to soon be near you (2010-2011?)

based on what you wrote and how the internet community works, I would suggest a LJ community (if you don't want a forum that is), so certain parts can be locked to public and there is at least a little control over what can be seen by whom.

apart from that, don't say you'd be unable to do much. even a little can be appreciated highly and I'm sure poeple would be willing to help out. why wouldn't they?

I'm not much of an artist or composer, coder or such, but I'd like to help out. so no worries, things will work out, because that's what our fandom should be like, helping each other out where we can.
and maybe we really could form something bigger. I do have some ideas about little goods for JYE at least ^^ so you can get back to me, if there's something I can do

Why not try an LJ community? There are a lot of dbsk, yunjae fans specifically, here on livejournal. In this case they can stay on the same site and they don't need to make another account.

And don't say you're not able to do much, being there for the boys is more than enough. You know I'd love to help out, just let me know. I might not be that tech-saavy or w/e but there must be something that I could do ;)

I don't know much about this :/ But, to me, LiveJournal sounds more save? Like, you'd be able to lock posts? I voted for LiveJournal.
~*~me~*~goettliche_kuh on November 22nd, 2010 10:52 pm (UTC)
i'd say lj-comm, since it's the more controllable solution ^^

Although, I do have to say wouldn't it quite rival jaeho_yongwonhi which already acts as YJEverlasting that is located within Livejournal?

I'd love for you to become a community! <3

I also suggest livejournal. There are so many YunJae fans right here. And I think there are alot of talented people on livejournal that can help. I am amazing by YunJae fans almost everyday. They are kind and devoted and that is why I love being apart of this community. I love that even after some failed attempts you are still trying your hardest to rebuilt this forum. Thank you for all your hard work..

Maybe LJ or forum *cant decided ntill now*

N bout rival with jaeho_yongwonhi I thinks you don't have to thinks to much....
Its like one house different bedroom
For the content you can find one things for make a different from each other
We need that's all things to complete each other
yunajelove721yunajelove721 on November 22nd, 2010 11:51 pm (UTC)
We already have this on LJ. But if we made it open to general YunJae discussion and old stuff I think it could work cuz this jaeho_yongwonhi is more of recent updates and such.

Locked forum is ok too but yeah I feel like the free server forums are very slow? Is that what they are called? Idk... I finally stopped doubting YJ after I read through the archives of YJEverlasting... So I def. support anything you guys do and would even help out where I can. :)

I would much perfer lj comm because visiting forums would be a hassle and plus i dont like how it is being separated into different categories (though it is much neater). Tags would be a more easier way to maneuver round the comm and i believe those who are hooked onto livejournal/blog style would prefer it that way? Plus I dislike how forums go throw maintenance etc.

I dont really think it would rival jaeho_yongwonhi as though they serve the same purpose, it is two different usage? Personally, I do check between communities even though they have similar content such as jaeho_detox and jaeho_complex and hug______

Livejournal would be a more user-friendly site and updating is much easier (: such as browsing through phones.

Awe Yue. :/ You should do what is in your heart and not feel that YWH can overshadow your efforts.

But I will link to it as a top affiliate, for sure. It'll be like YWH's sibling website. :3

YWH can represent YJE and YJE can represent YWH. \o/

I'd love to joint if you decided to become LJ comm.
and yeah maybe in LJ you can have more control.

As a fan, I've I want to see YJeverlasting prosper as well.
I've been the the community many times, and like many have pointed it out, it's a little... quiet. Nevertheless, YJeverlasting is still one of the best known groups to me when I first joined, and I want to see it keep going.

However, in all honesty, I hate forums. I manage one myself, but I hate the general format of it. In terms of organization, a forum is ideal since it enables members to find things with ease, but for the noobs of the internet, it may a little hard to understand or navigate.
A blog (ie. Blogspot, wordpress, etc.) may come in handy since it's easy to navigate and follow as well as allowing followers to comment on subjects. Plus, it may be easier to manage (too much html coding and whatnot required for forums). Livejournal is also an option, although jaeho_yongwonhi exists, it's more of a community where fans share random Yunjae facts to one another; whereas YJeverlasting is more of a general base of all that is Yunjae. Plus, there's already a good gathering of the Yunjae fan community here.
I may even suggest wordpress. Blogspot tends to lack a bit in the organization department, but from the wordpress blogs I follow, they're pretty organized. The up side to blogs is that, with an account, it's easy to follow since updates are sent to users (ie. friends page, follower, etc.)
But if it really comes down to the goal that is YJeverlasting, a forum is probably best : l

I think it's hard for any international Cassie group to run as well as the Korean or Chinese ones since we don't really ever see the boys, so there's little as a fan group that we can do or follow up on. Don't feel down about it though, I think as a group, you guys are doing good : )
Um, school and life sometimes get the best of me, but I'm willing to offer my help if it's needed : )

(P.S. It's funny how most comments here vote for LJ though, maybe it's because we're all Lj-ers lol)

I just want something save from outsiders... this time yunjae haters just uugghhhh i hate it..

gah. I wasn't able to vote T_T I just got ol today :|

Since the YH-hater dramas kinda go around everywhere lately, I think we can do anywhere that is the safest to discuss or share our YJ story. Is LJ quite safe, compared to others? Look at Jaeho Yongwonhi for example...?

Anyway, I'm excited we gonna have place for International YJ fans :D
