About the mods:

Hi all! We're nice and friendly people! We don't bite! Hope we'll make loads of friends here! Hajimemashite yoroshiku onegaishimasu! Jaa, here's our self introduction!



coolohoh
Howdy everyone! Coolohoh here! Random is my middle name, so look forward to loads of random posts from me. I'm the games master here, I'll be posting loads of games/events/activities so do take part and earn yourself some points in the process! Winners of each cycle will get some random prizes! Also I'll be sharing some translations... provided I have spare time to translate stuff that is.

I've been on LJ for a few years and I really love interacting with everyone here. Needless to say it really saddens me to see how everyone is migrating to twitter and tumblr. Not that I don't like those platforms... but it's really hard to interact with people there... So yes! I hope that with this community, and our unique Storm Freaks Special Points System, we'll be able to get this place alive again. Please take part!! Ja ne!




hoshino_a
Hi guys, des here. Nice to meet u all. This is my first time mod-ing, maybe even my first comm too. Pls be
kind to me XD
Actually i made it here cos apparently there's no aiba biased ppl to be found. Fellow aiba biased pls give me a shout out. Let's make our presence known!
Let's all have share the good times fangirling together :D




j_sei
Hello SF members! Jessica or Sei, one of the mod here.
I rarely get active with people on LJ and I think it's time for me to be more active (or I tried to!, be kind to me xD)
I will try to be equal if I post something for Arashi as a whole but since I'm a Nino bias, please expect some Nino flailing on my part.
Don't afraid to approach and talk to me. I might seems cold at first but I'll be sure to warm up quick enough.




jheili
Ola! The name's Jae and I'm an Arashi fan but I've loved Jun ever since the freaking beginning of time! Okaaaay! I'm not really good with words and I don't think I will be able to introduce myself that well to you guys anyway, but there are a few things I'd like to warn you in advance. I'm spontaneous, erratic, random, LAZY, and an innate procrastinator. lol.




nihonarashi
Hi minna~ please call me Ana :3
This is my first time become mod for livejournal community. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!!! Actually I’m not too active (but not or twitter, tumblr, fb i think? Lol) and lazy talking with people in lj but I’ll try to be more active here surely >w<
I am Nino bias and and Matsumiya big shipper ♡ *and hope it won’t influence my post here* Feel free talking to me because I need friends! ( ̄ε ̄@) ~ Once again, Yoroshiku!

nijininare
Doumo~ nijininare here! A self-paced food and art loving, perpetually clueless ARASHI FAN. When I'm not bouncing to different places I give time to my two loves: cooking & ARASHI. I occasionally post reviews and/or translate certain snippets of episodes. STILL not completely familiar with LJ so bear with me. Yoroshiku ^.^




octavialao
Cute, bubbly, chatty, loud, annoying, and a certified CRAZY mascot. CRAZY about Arashi, about Sho and his forehead. A perv (only when Arashi is involve) day and night!

Want color in your life? call me and I'm your gal! Octavia!

CAUTION:
All of you beware. She came from a nut house. If you dare befriend her, you'll be driven to insanity! You'll end up laughing your ass off!




steffiindrajana
Hi everybody! Call me steff or whatever you want and my ichiban is the pervert-looking Ohno!! But my OTP is the gorgeous looking pair, Sakumoto (or Yama and Juntoshi, but please don't make Yamamoto because it will give me a headache). Hope this community can make our fangirling life become more interesting HAHAHAHAHA

Hello my fellow storm freaks!

Let me introduce you to something very unique to this community!

The Storm Freaks Special Points System!

What is it?

It's a point scoring system for all members!

Ok, so how do I earn points?

Currently there are 3 ways:

1) You can earn points by commenting in Arashi related discussion posts by our mods. (No points for activity/game posts, modposts, and annoucement posts.)
For each comment that has substantial content (so just saying 'thanks', or 'nice' won't cut it, no junk/spam either), you get 2 points.

Note that for logistics purposes, only comments made within 1 week from the time the post is made will be counted. E.g. A post was made on the 3rd of Oct, points will only be awarded for comments made on/before the 10th of Oct. Comments made on the 11th of Oct will not count.

2) Contests/quizzes/activities/games will be held once every two weeks or so, and points will be rewarded to the participants. The amount of points rewarded will vary with the type of contest and so on, so stay tuned!

3) Make a post on Storm Freaks! Contribute to the community by making a post and earn 20 points*. Please see here for further instructions.
*Subject to changes if system is abused.

I saw something there... what's "substantial content"?

Comments that are meaningful, and add to the discussion. While we certainly appreciate words of thanks, saying 'thank you' alone won't merit you with a point. Try to add on talk about the post!

That's reasonable. Anything else to note?

Oh. Please read the Do's and Don'ts post!

Members who flame (or instigate flames) will get 10 demerit points, per comment. Same goes for bashing, racism, and insensitive comments about religion.

This sounds really exciting! But what can I do with the points?

You'll get to see how active you were in the community, and boast to your friends about it! We'll also put the final points each member got in the Hall of Fame at the end of every cycle!

Top point scorers will also receive special prizes from us Storm Freaks mods!

More info about the prizes:
Prizes will be award to the top 5 point scorers, with a special 'big' prize for the winner*!
There will also be a lucky draw for those outside the top 5, so don't despair if you're not at the very top!

*To give others a chance, the same person may not win the 'big' prize twice in a row - the prize will go to the 1st runner up instead.

Huh? What's a cycle?

A cycle is a scoring period, lasting about 6 months. At the end of each cycle, points are tallied, prizes awarded, and a new cycle will begin. Points are reset every cycle, to make it fair or new comers and so on. Everyone will get a chance!

Ok, so how do I check my points?
You can check your points over at this spreadsheet. Note that the counting and keying in of points is a MANUAL process, as such occasionally you may see some weird numbers as we update the points live (while keying in the numbers). So don't be alarmed. Also, points are only updated when the mods are free. Usually after the 1 week limit for each post is up, depending on mod/volunteer availability of course.

Wonderful! I'll definitely take part! But a last question... why this Points System in the first place?

Because we want to make a fun community with LOADS of member INTERACTION. We want a place where we can hold discussions with other fans. That's why we came up with this incentive for people to comment and chat. We hope that you'll enjoy your time chatting with us, and with the other community members!!!


Lastly, this system is constantly being refined and reworked. As such, the rules of this system will be tweaked should the need arise, we appreciate your kind understanding!

Summary:
- Be active, comment and discuss in posts, take part in contests, earn points.
- Top point scorers wins prizes!
- Scores reset every 6 months.
