About three months ago, we simultaneously launched our new name (Super Heroines, Etc.) and our new website! The new site is designed with our members in mind. If you’re already a dues-paying member, you get free access to the website (yay free!). This site includes forums, interest groups, challenges, and even opportunities to win points! Below is a list of all the ways you can maximize your experience on the Super Heroines, Etc. website:
Pay Your Dues & Get Access
All dues-paying members get free access to the Super Heroines, Etc. website. By paying your dues to the local chapter, you get local events, access to the website and many other fun perks! If you’re already a dues-paying member, you would have received an email with details on how to set up your account. If you haven’t received this information, email email@example.com.
Our houses are based entirely on your zodiac sign (so completely random!) to help you meet folks from all over and with varied interests. These houses are your homebase for finding out news, information, and general awesomeness. Your Head of House (once selected) will be your point of contact for questions and concerns as well as rallying house spirit for competitions, activities, and more.
Join a Group
In addition to houses, we have many interest groups spanning topics from tv shows to comic books to fanfiction and more. If you share an interest with one of these groups, join and interact with the other members. Or if you have an idea for another group, start one yourself and invite your friends.
Participate in a Forum
Most groups have forums, but there are more forums than groups! You can use the forums to discuss topics from your groups, or form a forum to talk about general interests, things going on with Super Heroines, Etc. or for bigger interests like SciFi, Fantasy or British television.
Find Your Friends
The new site is designed as a complete social networking site, which means you can connect with your friends. One of the great things about this site is that if you meet someone at an event, you can connect with them from within our site and not have to switch over to Facebook or other social networking sites.
Earn Achievement Points
There are so many ways to earn achievement points on the new site. And what are these achievements points used for? Right now, they’re just for fun! But you never know what we might use them for in the future. Play around on the site and you might get a few points or attend an event and get points! In fact just for reading this post, you get points – use code “shesite” to redeem you points!
Become an Agent of SHEtc Online
We are in need of a few folks to serve as Heads of House and other moderator-type roles on the site! Do you have what it takes to become an agent of SHEtc? You’ll meet a ton of people through the site, help make the experience super awesome, and have feedback on what types of things we do with the site. Responsibilities include moderating forums, encouraging participation, running challenges and events, and generally making the site super fun! If you’re interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
