What's the plan this year? I thought what we did last year was neat, but let's brainstorm some ideas for this year! We can always improve year after year, right?

We could send a big cake with a big written "No Ellen No Party".

Sure.
We can have a party with Ellen, and if there will be space, we will can also invite the two dogs.
And also we can organize a big party style "Project X". :D

Cute.
We can do the same thing. We can send "postcards" and with Flash we can do a big message board like this.

Ok, I will sacrifice myself.
I can do a tattoo on my chest "Happy Birthday Ellen".
Sin that the next year will useless because it will take a new idea.

Anyway, apart from the jokes, this year you can create a collage with videos* from the users. We can open a new 3d, and anyone can send a little video, up to the 20th February. After one user can do the collage and post it on the site. I think it's very cute to see every users of different nations say "Happy birthday" in their language.


*videos with everybody will say "Happy Birthday".

That sounds neat! Seeing as how we're from all over the world. If we don't do that this year, perhaps next year.

We did that already two years ago. But sadly it wasn't a big hit. :disappointed:
Only a few people made a video and currently there are even less people active in here.
http://24thbirthday.ellenpage.org/videowall.html

Also: Since last years birthday project wasn't very popular either, I'm sure Dominik had no intentions to spend a lot of time and effort to organize another more or less disappointing project, again.

Sad but true.

Let's hope that her future projects bring more life in the "fandom" again, so that more people will participate in future birthday projects.

AND: Maybe even Ellen will notice it. Because I'm pretty sure she doesn't even know there are things like that here on "her" website.

Yes, my idea is similar, but i mean to make only one video (about of 10 minutes) with the greeting of everyone. Understand?*

I don't know this, because i am on this site from this year. Though i know Dominik from the last year, because i contact the site for an E P's italian movie.

You are taking the words out of my mouth :totalhappy: That is exactly one of the reasons why I didn't do much in this context this year. I don't see any sense in spending (and eventually wasting) 1-2 weeks on something that attracts only a handful of people at the end. Most of them are posting their own messages on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr anyway, which might even be the better choice as Ellen apparently prefers responding to random people over checking the stuff here. One could now argue that it's finally all about Ellen and not about her fans. But as hard as it sounds, I got the impression over the years that it makes no difference whether there is such a "birthday project" or not due to the lack of response or any kind of reaction. This is doubly disappointing considering two guys additionally send her a small (bee-related) gift in agreement with her management in 2012 (with the same result).

I highly doubt this will ever happen because the amount of long-term fans is declining and I don't see anything that could change that.
