Last night while I browsing around at ai-station, I notice that the sliding images as the header in that site is a link to page where we can purchase Ai-chan stuffs by simply clicking on them. By then I was thinking wether it is possible to have this “image sliding” widget as part in Channel-Ai Portal so that while we checking news in Channel-Ai, we can also shop at the same time. In my plan, the advantages of this thingy is that the descriptions and informations of every Ai-chan merchandises provided is written by Channel-Ai members so they are more detail and accurate compare to Yesasia and Ebay. Meanwhile, any enquiry can always receive an immediate reply by posting in there instead e-mailing to Yesasia staffs which sometimes reply us with answer that not answering our question or answer that lead to another question.

So this suggestion is arise due to my necessitate to have a more cool, efficient and trouble-free system in searching information’s regarding Ai-chan merchandises that crazily too many ranging from books, singles, albums, LOVE-chan stuffs and many-many more~

But when I reconsider about it, adding this thingy as part in Channel-Ai Portal seemed is totally impossible due to some technical limitation (especially allowing member to leave comment in Channel-Ai Portal), therefore I came out with another idea which I think will it necessary to so? or even to bring this up... Which is create another new section and locate it together with other Ai's-sections and named as "Ai's goods".

Why is it necessary?

Since we all know Avex stuff’s always sooooooo expensive, end up all Ai-chan related products befall into high involvement products category which will require intensive information’s search by consumers in order to ensure the stuffs we buy is correct and meet our needs and wants. Therefore this place will provide this service and advantages I mentioned above.

Why not go Yesasia or CdJapan?

We want more~ Angry grin those not even half page informations is really useless. Normally people, like me, can only go to Yesasia to look for these info or sometimes Ebay which always come with not up-to-date and unwell listed informations since other online store mostly in Japanese and I don't understand!. eq Japamart and mu-mo.
*latest information’s about the product (from various sources, such as rating and comments from members that had finally purchase and use the items) can also be added from time to time.

This section will also work as fans gallery where they can browse all Ai-chan merchandises that had been released so far in her Road of Artist and meanwhile, we can also promote Channel-Ai associate link with Yesasia and CdJapan to increase the monthly commisions to hold more contest or maybe we can even donate those money to some non-profit organization to help those in needed. (They really kasihan)
*For unavailable anymore merchandises, if any member saw the product somehow still selling at other website, they can also post the link there to notice other who are interest.

Example of member comment that can be very informative:

Cin Cin Bui Bui wrote: You know what! at Ai-chan LOVE IS BORN 3th anniversary, she already had performed Renai Shashin while it still is an unreleased song. But for some reason this part was removed from the DVD track list and also wowow broadcast. The reason simple, it because Renai Shashin is a song that will release as new single for Ai-chan in future which is approximately nearly 1 year later after 3th anniversary.

I wrote:
we can also promote Channel-Ai associate link with yesasia

How it promote?

It's simple and clean (utada hikaru song)~ at every "Official Ai's-product" Thread, we put the associate link below. Repeative advertisement will occurs and this will eventually increase people's motivation to learn about the associate link. Then then then more peoples will use the link to buy Ai's CD. With the link provided in every Ai's goods thread, member can straight purchase everything and no more excuses like "Oh.. I forget to use the link and bla bla bla". Laughing


In order to make Ai's goods section more lively, Members are allowed to create one (and only one) own thread to sell their Ai-Collections this include CDs, Books, Photos, Posters and even own draw Ai-chan art. At here, I would like to call the "own thread" as "own shop" (so let start call it shop by now Boogie ). At your own shop, you allow to sell anything related to ai-chan (it can belong to ur or ur friends) but with one condition which is .... erm ... I can't remember which is what ... will add next time T_T

Ai's goods thread title example:
[Payment Method] [Name of your "Shop"]
eq. [PP][Adiputra"Ai"Store]
CC=Credit Card
HN=Hell Notes Giggle


I believe the Ai's goods section will always active or so-called in operation since every Ai-chan new singles and albums release will always accompany with some commodities and this have started as a trend since “kuroge wagyuu joshio tanyaki” year~ (kuroge wagyuu joshio tanyaki year = February 9, 2005) Happy

All members and Ai-fans that still not Channel-Ai member will have access to the Ai’s goods section information’s which is extract from daily update of Ai’s news section. Even accessing as quest, they also allowed to purchase using the associate link.

Erm… to prove that there's really lotta Ai stuffs that we don’t know and by adding this section will help, Here:


This is not 1337rice! But puzzle for LOVE9CUBE member when they purchase LOVE PiECE album. Mad


By SEGA, projector projecting planetarium. Shocked Wowowow~


LOVE IS BORN 3th anniversary crew pass.


Renai Shashin photoframe.


Neko Ni Fussen incense…. How it smell like? Beats me… maybe smell like otsuka sweat or after bath scent. Grin (there a fella quess it may smell like cat) Laughing
*I believe more Ai's goods have forgotten by our members and may even not aware that they exist.

Rules may also apply to this Ai's goods section in order to keep everything neat and clean. Lion
1. Of course Channel-Ai Rules. Laughing
2. (Not compulsory) All products picture preferable be posted in thumbnail in order to reduce long page for scrolling trouble.
3. Member (buyer and seller) who plan to open own shop Grin~ Must have the abilty to take full responsibilty to process all shipping and payment.

Example I found from [b]Ai's news that quite similar from what I planned.[/b]
It's a thread by Rinoa, one of our mod, Jam Punch Tour Items
*Get what I mean?

The similar idea have come out before by gothicayu---> sell buy trade section

We can also put sticky for latest Ai's-merchandises for period of the related singles or album still in oricon chart.

I'm still struggling to decide wether to call it "Ai's goods" or "Ai's merchandises"... but Ai's goods seemed more match with Channel-Ai and less Avex

All this is just suggestion since it can also be done in gallery but... gallery is still slighty different from a thread... You guys sure understand what I mean. (you can post as usual in the way you more get used to~ easier track (email reminder)~... these stuffs~) Frienger

Thank you very much to whoever pay attention to this suggestion. I love pikachu~

Gonna hit the summit button now~ Cya~

Daniel Adi Putra,

As suggested by AiiR, we can also use the most primitive way, which our grand grand father called it "Barter" to get what we want from fellow members. Boogie

Spot on idea Daniel! Smile I reckon this will be easier for the people who can't buy from CDJapan etc. I assume you've sent this to eyn or the other mods right?

I guess it would be essential for me too like the rest have said. Giggle

Daniel, what you are suggesting has two parts to it. the first is a News section for all the merchandise, with descriptions, user comments/reviews and buying links or how-to-buy information. the second is a marketplace to sell/swap Ai-related goods.

currently, merchandise is reported in the related News thread. if it is for a tour, then the goods for that tour will be listed there. i may be wrong, but i think all merchandise has a theme that relates it to either a tour or music release (single/album). if there was to be a separate forum for goods it would probably make sense for the items to be grouped together in the one thread if they have the same theme, which would mirror the thread in the News section. eg. "The LOVE PiECE Tour Goods". the way it works now, members who are active at the time of the tour/release will be aware of the related goods as they are reported in the News section. if this new Goods section is for people who come later, one problem is the goods may be either sold out or just not available any more. in effect: "what you have missed out on", presuming the late arriver was interested to purchase. but it would still serve the purpose of historically documenting all the merchandise in one location, which may be of value.

as for the marketplace, this is usually done in the Off Topic Chat Room (example) so there may be some logic in putting this sort of activity in the one place.

now i think about the LOVE goods, i realise that merchandise is not always tied to a release/event. example: LOVE-chan Perfume . so now i wonder how the LOVE goods might fit into this idea. Confused

^ Thanks for the further elaboration.
After read the issue you rise, I become aware that I did miss the part that LOVE merchandise seldom released follow with the single releasing (It become quite confusing after add to consider of how to manage the LOVE's merchandise Confused )

And few self-arguments come to my mind.
1st. Should LOVE merchandise news put in Ai's goods sections to provide easy access of info for members and act as part of historically documenting you mentioned when they become unavailable or,
2nd. LOVE merchandise is better grouped and locate in LOVE's area as provided. But this will miss the idea of making Ai's goods section a place where we can fully and easily access all Ai's stuff.

But at the moment, the best way I reckon better in order to fit LOVE merchandise to my suggestion is to have one thread in Ai's goods that operate as a place for all LOVE goods that unable to be categorized due to not release with conjuction of any LOVE single. Example, LOVE-chan Perfume .
*This idea is come out when I look at Channel-Ai Gallery . Photos that uncategorized is grouped together in Gallery Miscellaneous
*This is to avoid too many LOVE goods thread open in Ai's goods section which will end up very messy and boring since every thread only provide with one discussable matter.

Example of the thread name (By this hope members can see my intention and idea) Confused
[Official Released] LOVE's Miscellaneous 2007]
[Official Released] LOVE's Miscellaneous 2008]
[Official Release] LOVE's Miscellaneous 2009] <--- Now

*Perhaps LOVE merchandise that post in Ai's goods has to be official released by AVEX, not those from markets~ This is to assist LOVE's fans to distinguish which stuff is really from Ai-chan.

Meanwhile, I recommend that LOVE's goods thread is better open by member that is VIP or old member of Channel-Ai (Mod or Admin preferable) since it will require frequent update and the member must very NEAT coz he/she will require to put the summary in the first page as our Download section normally do. (eq. "Ai" TV Performances). Boogie

*This is the first time I use "Reckon" this word in Channel-Ai... do I sounds like Carlito? Laughing


Check out this in LOVE-chan official website
All previous released goods is still recorded there. Unlike Ai-chan official website, previous goods will be deleted or removed. (mean do we still getting LOVE merchandise to Ai's goods?) Perhaps LOVE merchandise can stick back to LOVE's area while report once in a while when there's really some special-interesting LOVE goods out. Like this one ----> LOVE-chan Perfume
So maybe Ai's goods will really for Ai-chan goods only.

Coz I just try to create the thread bout LOVE's goods collection at 2008 and it's kinda hard to make it interesting since most item are just so... nothing to report and lame T_T.
