Let’s Build A Band!

January 24th, 2012

Figment is all about creating fake bands, and nobody can build a fake band better than our players!  So we thought it would be fun to see if we could try a little crowdsourcing experiment.  We want to build a band with you!

So how is this going to work?  Well, let’s start by assigning tasks.  We need the following:

1.  A Band Name

2.  Band Genre

3.  Band Tagline

4.  Band Image

5.  Band Members

6.  Band Bio

Let us know what you are interested in working on as a comment below and we’ll divvy up the assignments to everyone.  If we have multiple people interested in doing a specific task then you’ll need to be willing to share your email address with the other players who will be participating.  Don’t worry, we’ll contact you before sharing it to make sure you are still interested, and it will only be shared with those players who are participating.

Once we’ve got an idea of what everyone wants to work on then we can move forward with the actual creation of the band.  We’ll give those players selected a week to create each step of the process (maybe 2 weeks for the bio?) and post a blog post with info regarding the completed task.

What do you think?  We hope you’ll embrace the idea, because we think it’s a fun exercise.  Oh and did I mention that we’ll reward everyone involved with lucre rewards for participating?  Better yet, when it’s all said and done we will have created a band.  Then we can get started on their first album!

    I am happy to take on any of the tasks. So if there’s one that no one else wants…I’ll do it.

    I have a question regarding the band image: does that refer to an image of the actual band itself, or a band logo? Because if it’s a logo, then I’d love to give that a shot.

  3. Algoreyou Says:

    I can do 1, 5, or 6. This is going to be awesome.

  4. eric Says:

    It can be a logo or a band shot, although I realize band photos are much tougher to do unless you have a lot of understanding friends! So logo’s are fine.

  5. frizbee Says:

    Count me in for the logo, then!

    I can tackle the bio, though there are players more suited to the task than me. I’d love to spawn a new genre though *evil grin*

  7. Childofalma Says:

    Or members. I can do members.

    I think I might be able to handle the band name.

    I’m late to the party but you can give me a job… even if it’s just carrying equipment around 😛

  11. Tyman Says:
