Hi everyone! This is Yerevan calling!
You might say... Hey, isn't just Florin who can post here?... Well, from now on, Armenia's able to do it too! Weebly (that is somehow, our official sponsor, if you know what I mean) has made a gift to this page, and now we're able to use many PRO features, including this one... the possibility of having more than one poster. Isn't that just great?
Well.... That's not the only thing that has turned into PRO. The contest itself is turning PRO.... The wikia is still underway, but it's going to look great; the Armenian delegation points mid-February as the release date. The webmaster also told us that many submissions are arriving (some of them not taking into account the rules) and we could have even 40 countries participating! As also something new, the idea of holding diverse National Finals (remember that the only NFs so far have been hosted by Romania (EM11) and Armenia (EM02, EM11)) is taking shape. Armenia has proposed a simple and effective system:
* You, on an e-mail, ask Armenia to hold a National Final for you. You can also ask for a recap, if you want to.
* After all the NFs info has been collected, Armenia will send in just ONE e-mail (to prevent you from receiving a lot) with the information of all the national finals to be hosted.
* Armenia will collect the votes through either e-mail, or a custom form; and at the end, right before the submissions for the next EM edition are finished, the results will be shown in just ONE e-mail.
The idea has yet to be totally accepted by the webmaster, but we think we might have a chance to do this. Plus, Armenia proposes a website (here on Weebly too) for those delegations that don't want to have a site of their own (like Armenia, Romania or Turkey) but that do want to have somewhere to post news or the NFs.
In other news, Eurovision Memories will participate in Online Music Extravaganza, a contest that gathers the best songs from many other online contests (currently, on its fifth edition). This will be very helpful as it will promote a contest, and it will be another way to show the best of the songs that have been performed here. We can only submit 3 songs, and preparations for a mini-contest to select those 3 songs are underway.
Stay tuned for more news!
