Internet forums have played an instrumental role in uniting the fanbase, but in terms of their mainstream exposure these methods of information distribution are too insular. It's difficult for everyday people to be exposed to a website like With the Will, Digital Dive, or one of the other big names in the forum community. Some of these have fallen into disuse or disappeared entirely. What we need is a resource that is as accessible to the general public as an off-the-rack magazine, and is willing to institute the necessary measures to be indexed by popular search engines, aggregators, and social media platforms. This will help sustain our membership.
My vision is to help cultivate the global digital community laid out in Our War Game, Adventure 02, Diablomon's Counterattack, and Digimon Story. Not just to dictate a body of "news" to the public, but to contribute to a network of fans that can keep each another informed, exchange ideas, and support one another. There will come a time when Bandai & Toei will try their hands at airing another weekly Digimon series. When that time comes, we will be ready for their pass.
I have a wealth of experience to draw on, having helped support and organize tournament play for Cardfight!! Vanguard and contribute to the TCG's growth in the west. The training I received from several eminent journalists will inform how I operate Tamer Union in the years to come. Donate what you feel comfortable donating. Whether it's $2 or $20, I want to prove to you all that I'm worthy of your pledges. Securing funding and building my audience are my primary concerns right now; everyone will be given appropriate credit for their contributions, and it's my plan to build towards setting up event organization and announcement through Tamer Union when it becomes practical to create funding goals to pay for those events.
