Very exciting time for Marina fans; Marina has a growing following on here (37 entries on the FROOT rate is quite impressive), plenty of discussion in the album threads and although she may not have gathered much interest in her first two eras, a Marina forum could attract users from other forums (Popjustice etc) and other fans on Twitter if managed correctly! Plenty of discussion points aside singles and albums too given there will no doubt be a FROOT tour and other side projects/shoots that Marina will do leading up to what is likely to be a fourth era!

Marina is, in my opinion, nowhere near a big enough name to generate enough content for her own forum. Outside of her music I haven't really seen anything about her on any site.

i don't think she's big enough yet, or that she'd generate enough discussion realistically sad.gif

I think she'd certainly generate more discussion than some of the other artist forums that we have. The album has singles to come, she has the Clean Bandit collab coming up and tour etc.

But I can understand why the mods wouldn't take the risk as she's not as iconic as other artists.

I've voted yes though.

I'd love one but I think I'm gonna have to vote no. sad.gif She generates a lot of discussion during the era but there's very little to report outside that time so it would go through some real dead patches.

A BIG YES from me

I don't see how her "not being big enough" has anything to do with it when there are the likes of Darius, when Marina generates more discussion and has a much larger core following on here than probably 80% of our current AFS and "big enough" artists like Katy, Miley and Rihanna

She has a rabid online fanbase outside the forum too, eg. Marina Boards, "big enough" artists like Katy, Miley, Rihanna don't even have these active online forums which imo is complete manifestation that the "big enough artist" criteria is very much void in Marina's case here

I'd say I agree with this. And in reply to what Joseph said, in the same way that Girls Aloud/Sugababes/etc forum stays alive when they're nothing going on there are lots of games that can be played during quieter times.

That's true to be fair! And there are many willing mod candidates. Although I think GA is boosted by the fact that in between eras, there are still things to discuss (mainly courtesy of Cheryl). This is why I wish it were more simple to do a trial run for AFs, I think the Marina one could really do with this!

I don't speak for anyone in management bar myself of course, but I am very much of the view that endless rates and topics which do nothing other than generate mindless posts do not constitute a successful forum. The content should be driving posts and if there isn't the content there to sufficiently manage at least a handful of new threads on a weekly/bi-weekly basis then as far as I'm concerned there shouldn't be a forum.

And yes, at least half of our current AF's fall under that banner. If I had my way there would be a major cull, as a lot of them just aren't pulling their weight at all. Zealous modding isn't enough, despite some truly excellent mods currently being in place in AF's.

The context in which I use ''big enough'' is not in terms of fan base size, or record sales, but rather in terms of general name recognition and presence online. Marina doesn't have either on the level of ''big enough'' artists like the upper echelon of current popstars Kath mentioned. In that sense there is less content available and therefore less need for an individual artist forum.

Marina has actually jameela.jpg had quite a large following on here prior to Froot as well, Electra Heart was a 34-page smash hit thread and the r8 I hosted a while back also garnered somewhat 30 people rating and plenty of discussion

When will your Teenage Dream Ablisa faves

MARINA IS A QOL PEOPLE

I think with a dedicated mod team and a chance this could go very well, there's no denying that this will be a very refreshing addition to Buzzjack, and could potentially attract more tumblr hipster posters in addition to the mostly pop ones we have right now

Well, respectfully, I am denying it will be ''refreshing'' as I don't see in what way this is going to cause any major change to the site. It might bring in some new posters, it might not. I don't know, but on balance of probabilities I would say it's more likely to just become another in a line of failed AF's.

Of course if the vote supports one, I won't be against it. Just giving my views behind my no vote.

I dont object to an artist forum especially for Marina. I would, however, not be willing to support tedious attempts to keep an artist forum open when this era has passed and she's between albums.

There is certainly interest when era's are going but when not, I can't see much discussion. She just isn't a big enough name.

If Nicki Minaj doesn't even have her own forum, Marina shouldn't.
