Being Human Universe Facts / known mythologies
Being Human Timeline
Character discussion, by character
Episode download / view links
Image gallery - would be great to have an organized place to compile all the screengrabs!

Just a few brainstorms! Wondering if the Being_New Livejournal discussion could somehow transfer over? Non_canonical has gotten into some of the above topics re characters and timelines.

All excellent ideas from saemay!

 

I'm a fan of quotes and have poor memory, so quotes by episode/character would be an awesome resource to have.

Gifs gallery by episode/character if the people who make them want to share here.

We have episode image galleries and character image galleries ready to go, most of the other suggestions sound perfect but they would be started by people once they want to share something :) xx

I was thinking that using bh you tube clips might be a good way to kick of character / episode discussions. And just opened the advanced editor and seen the button so it shouldn't be difficult.

So of the behind the scenes stuff interms of makeup/ effects and interveiws with the crew/ writters would be good too, such as @snazzdolls Q&A.

Hello all!

Just a thought about content – I think the key to this really taking off is to keep the topics as wide ranging as possible and also to let it evolve. I’ve been in other groups that have ended up as fan groups of a single character or actor. There’s a place for that – don’t get me wrong – but if this is going to have legs everyone has to feel included and able to post about anything.

No party line, no rules except - to quote Toby - being nice to each other!

Might be nice to have an off-topic section - maybe call it The New Found Out - for general chat over a virtual pint of blood (to quote the NFO regulars!)

@Aqua I love that idea Jo!!! Ill get back on my laptop and look where would be best to put it in a sec.

@littleblue yeh videos are a great way to start conversations. When we enter info for things like prequels and episodes it'll be good to link some videos etc x

Having a day and a time where we take one character and talk about them in a topic all the way up until they aether died or just left. So lets say we took Mitchell , we would talk about how he joined Annie and George and talk about him being a vampire and how he acted and treated himself and other people. It's kinda hard to explain what i mean. But pick a character and talk about them until theirs nothing left to talk about! :D

A topic to discuss quotes in and arguments or conversations between characters and our feelings and what we think the character was feeling!

A place to watch lots of being human videos and just discuss the videos!

To be honest i have no idea what i'm typing :P just trying to throw some ideas out there whether there useful or not ...

I shall never post when i'm tired again ... sorry :p x

Plus may be good to have character discussions linked to fic ideas and without taking the place of FF to have a good place to chew over character devt

Ive had a thought for a while to do on twitter .. does anyone know the game of Consequences where someone starts a story.. next person reads that line, then folds the paper over , and writes their own line.. next person checks that last thread folds over and writes their own line.. would be fun to do that with some set parameters like a story theme and characters so and you end up with a weird story line which may end up with some #filth but hey! Dont know if thast possible to hide previous posts apart from the one before for the next person posting..
Ok.. Ill get me coat..

Is this going to be strictly UK or UK/US versions of show? Trying to think from a traffic point of view, but that's a lot of work.

 That's a good idea IMO, especially as the US series is due to air next month on Watch.

If you only want a UK board, we could maybe just have a sub board to discuss what we think of it.

Good morning ladies, I want to keep this site for being human uk since I have never watched the us version and don't intend to lol!

However I do agree that there should be an area where people can discuss it if they want to so I will set that up :) thanks for the suggestion, I wouldn't have thought of it xx

Hi all,

I really would like to see some sort of competition somewhere i.e. photo competition BH in real life i.e. quirky BH related names.

And I think it would be nice to post about BH filming sites and travel guides.

Great idea on the travel guides indigo, thats something we can add in the near future for sure,

As for competitions though, what would the prizes be? Would we need prizes or do you think people would partake just for fun? x

Perhaps under each of the character profiles you could do a section on the actor/actress behind them and link it to the fan facebook pages in order to help them out also?;3 Just saying.

I used to help moderate the fanfiction forum of a website dedicated to a show i used to be into before Being Human (Smallville) and it was quite successful. Once the forum was established and first time writers (for example) were confident enough to share their fics, we used to run a 'fanfic of the month' competition. There wasn't a prize per se, another forum member used to create banners in the style of what the fic was about and the nominated person had it in their signature bar for that month or longer, if they were so inclined. It was quite popular but of course, this was down to a busy fanfiction forum. It was a lot of fun and there was a great atmosphere as we encouraged a lot of shy would be authors and were never negative, there was no flames and that was something we were pretty proud of.

Indigo I' was thinking that a weekly photo caption competion would be good to start off with, I have the just the photo in mind to start of with! I think that people would do it just for fun but we could pick a winner, though that meen some one choosing or a vote? Also best place for it? Gallary's or the cafe?

I was thinking as we have a calendar, a Happy birthday thread for users would be nice. What would be the right place for it, though?

Hi all

There is a calendar on the top bar of the forum on the right hand side. Feel free to add birthday or whatever you may like there :)

Maybe the cafe rather than galleries for the caption competition, as long as people can find it easily that's what we need to think about.

A playlist is a great idea, I have some songs and will post a topic for them later then maybe people can add to it with any that I am missing

If you ever have an idea for a topic but don't have the content you could always start the topic then other can add to it whatever information they have xxx

What I meant was, I thought it might be nice to start a place where we can give members a birthday greetings topic on/around their birthday. Where do you think it's best to place it on the site, Su?

Since it isn't particularly being human related I'd suggest adding a topic in the new found out bit, for general discussion :) x

Thanks, Su. I think the new found out is best, as a pub's perfect for celebrations.

 Agreed, Caption comp is the the easiest to organise. I would put it under The New Found Out or a separate topic all together.  e

This is half-suggestion, half-question.. I was wondering if we could have a quotes section, somewhere that we could share all characters quotes and just have a bit of a laugh (that's my half-suggestion) but I don't know if we're supposed to just put quotes in the 'Mantle-piece' section. If we are, that's cool, but I don't wanna end up doing something wrong and then being in the forum's badbooks so I thought I should check! ;)

I think they are all on YT but not all can be viewed from outside UK so someone inside UK would have to search for them

Maybe if someone in the UK could check this Becoming Human playlist and see if they are all working:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cz1rjjTki-w&list=PL894EFD50DC263EA6

 

GEMA won't let me watch 1 and 5, the rest seems ok

Maybe we could use this forum to try to archive some of the brilliant BH blog content before they take the blog away from us? We could re-upload images elsewhere, give youtube links to all the old behind the scenes vids etc.. keep it all in the same place... Would mean someone going back through all the old posts (Easter hols next week so not ruling myself out for a bit of that!) Sadly there's no way to save all our old comments but hey the blog content is better than nothing!

Hi Su, Just a bit confused by all the different headings; where is it best to look/post just for a general natter?
Still trying to recruit ~Mancvamp and Ewan from the darkside, think there afraid of my blood?

Hi Nic! I have it on good authority that the blog content will remain for a while yet so don't panic! However I'm not sure what we could get away with posting here. Feel free to post anything you like and then if we get asked to remove it we can always do so.

Lycan, if it's general being human stuff then you can post under the general BH one. If it's not being human related then you can post it in the new found out in the general discussion area. If your ever stuck just post it anywhere, ill see all posts so if it's in the wrong place I can always move it for you.

To be honest it's a free for all here. Post whatever you want wherever you want!

It's understandable that people won't join until the blog closes. This isn't a replacement it's a substitute :) be good to see the old ones here though xx

Do you think it would be possible to acquire scripts to every episode in all of 5 series? I don't mean subtitles, but texts that were worked upon. Is anyone else interested in such stuff? I'd love to plunge myself into reading - and trying not to memorize by heart.

Have I mentioned I'm eternally grateful to Su & technologically more evolved company for this forum? I truly am.

Hi 0p0, all the online eps in that playlist work for me!
Just made the forum for Becoming Human in The Sofa - do you want each online ep as a subforum within it or just as individual topics ? ~ domino
