Help us help you, feedback please.

Dear fans,

A lot of negative air seems to be coming this way. We've heard you on some, and here are some responses. In addition, I'd like to open up a forum for healthy discussion here.

there's no cricket in the community management blog this is by intention. for cricketing info, pls click on NEWS and browse through the FAN CLUB. This blog is where you'll find updates on Fan Activities

what has been done since Fan Summit?? New website design is coming up using some of Sachin's pointers. New loyalty program is possible following a tier system based on Vinayak's proposal. Meetups are being organized by City Ambassadors across the country. Social Media - I believe the team working on this had exams and thus were taking things slowly.

too many contests! too little cricket!! We've heard you, post our current line up of campaigns, we'll be focusing heavily on the sport - discussion, trivia, possibly 'play cricket' meetups

stop the vote-for-me-spam-contests Okay. You'll notice a slight change in the current campaign, the Royal Send Off, that is taking place. We're trying to steer away from "VOTE FOR ME" contests and turn them into "this community actively chooses..." type of selection. Won't be easy the first time, but do work with us.

there's too many people in Bangalore that haven't heard of this website Well, we can't do vote-for-me contests anymore... that & the Member Get Member program were terrific for spreading word about the site. But quite some fans disliked both contests (despite freebies) since it resulted in "NOT-PASSIONATE" fans. so if you find there' not many people in Bangalore who've heard of this Fan Club, tell them. If each of us 90K fans tells one person, we've doubled the fan club.

RCB isn't doing enough for us We're trying to understand this sentiment. Perhaps we spend too much time thinking "oh we're doing more than other clubs" and we missed on what we weren't doing. Okay, we'll do more. But we need YOUR support. YOU do more with us. If we want to achieve the size of a MAN U FAN CLUB, the fans need to be just as active! Apart from Sponsorships which take time to process, do let us know what RCB can do, and what you're willing to do to take the Fan Club to the next level.

Please share your grievances in a CONSTRUCTIVE manner so we know where to improve

@ SivaAN : I completely agree to your suggestion on the CMs for different cities as well as the ‘Bug’ that has been affecting Sachin.
All one needs is to clear the checkbox without a fail. Maybe Sachin does it, but, the other users on his computer are not doing it frequently enough and as a result Sachin ends up commenting under someone else’s name.

Oh..i see a lot of comments/suggestions. Can someone share any other IPL team doing so much for fans as has RCB done ?.... are'nt we all just becoming to individualistic in our efforts?... the big debate is 'Why has'nt MY idea been taken forward'?..if my idea has been implemented by Team RCB then the club is good . If not, then its bad!.

As one of the winners of FFC 2, i take serious offence to this cheap statement made by Rocky. There are 2 things to this actually:
1) we made enough friends from among the fans during FFC. Fans like Naresh Kamat and Jayanth KBS were so amazing when i went to Manipal and Shimoga respectively.
At the Mighty 14 meets too, i went around interviewing some of the chosen fans, Ashish clicked pics, MR shot videos and Aneesh took people around the hotel and made them feel comfortable. I even took the fans' personal cameras and clicked pics of theirs when the players came to give jerseys.
2) Rockky himself was very irritating to all of us, and if any of us didnt treat him well, he deserved it. I remember how he kept coming to the hotel and troubled us no end. He came even when he was not invited. What then does he expect us to do? Fall at his feet everytime he imposes himself on us and the players?

I was shocked holmes when i saw this persons comment in a related post. Very bad ...

Copied the below comment of fanatic fan Rockky here-
'My Suggestion :—Select one who knows about cricket, like any Ranji player from Bangalore. People Will keep fighting for Name n Fame. Everyone want to take advantage of this Awesome community. more than 20 to 30 % are fake just trying to highlight their name.
Those who Won FFC-2 they all were non deserving and selfish. I had watched many IPL3 matches and attended IPL Night parties but they all were so arrogant when they see any RCB supporter from this site.
All winners were trying to act like they are GOD. really shameful.
I wasn’t active in this community because of selfish people.
I would suggest select more girls as a winner than guys.'

is tht the reality?
If this coment is totally nonsense as i am believing, i suggest some action against this person...
also chek his fanatic posts n decide if he deserves the fanatic tag

@radio:you are the most suited for that sandy!!!

I dont even think we need a CM (outside EC) in cities other than Bangalore. In Delhi and Mumbai, we have just 2 or 3 serious fans (on the website), and a CM for such a small number is not necessary.
But yes, Bangalore really really needs a local paid representative. Let EC or RCB select this person(s) through a democratic process, and i'm sure it'll work wonders...

What happend to IPL's pledge for Green Earth contest.
