    how about including a code instead of ticket.. example is.. your given a special code that you can enter in the website.. or send to official e-mail to redeem whatever offer they want to give to fans..

    and for the offer.. how about a code to vote.. for senbatsu election for example.. it doesn’t have to be JKT48 senbatsu election.. it can be AKB48 senbatsu election…

    the code can be some thing like this ==> [ajst@69dsj6klsdjv]

      Yes, implementing a code to redeemed could also be viewed as a viable option. But first, they will have to implement a system for code redeeming that in sync with their database system, and also not forgetting the algorithm for the code itself to prevent easy cracking which in the end, could also take a toll financially although perhaps this option is much more better in a long term. Kudos to your idea :D

    maintaining 24 members + # KKS (eventually) + 2 special members + staff = endless cash flow. @Roy idea is great, but is it true that building those system is kinda expensive? (i am not familiar with IT budgeting). They will releasing single sooner or later, i think the next question is which label will take JKT ? maybe Avex hahaha just kidding

    • Angga says:

      Well, IT budgeting really depends on the man-per-hour pricing for the project and how long the team for the outsourced project have to work (It’s man-per-hour), so it could really expand from under 1000 USD to more than 1000 USD , at least that’s how it works internationally.

      I don’t really know much about the IT software market here in Indonesia, either they applied the man-per-hour system, prepackages system or simply by the wretched Speculative Works :lol:

      And about the Label, that’s going to be a good idea for a story, thanks! :D

    wahh >USD1000 yeah there always be back side from sophisticated system(stellar cost). about their financial status since many financial power behind them (some JPN company+MNC) i assume that not that worse, maybe. the problem is when they can make money for them hahaha

    I think they will sell it the same way they did with the Official Guidebook. The limited edition (comes with a special photopack, handshake ticket, or such) sold earlier at the theater earlier, and the normal version (without the ticket) sold all over Indonesia.

    I wonder if they will release a single (with only 5 songs from Hebirote to Baby Baby Baby) or maybe an album that includes 10+ songs (5 single songs in both Indonesian and Japanese versions, with 1 bonus song from Pajama Drive)…

    • Angga says:

      As for single , I don’t really know tho’ . Our current modern industry relies heavily on Album. The only one who released singles are Indie groups or individuals such as the amazing tunes made by Revara. I already made a topic about it on the second part :D

    This is the 1st time to hear that piracy problems you have so much in RI. I am trying to talk about the tickets attached sigles and albums idea metioned as the above by some subscribers of this web site. In Japan, as you probably already know, 48 groups’ each album and sigle CD includs a hand-shake ticket or voting-right ticket for SouSenkyo. But this bonus system, on the other hand, causes another problem. Probably you know so huge passionate fans have been purchasing singles and albums in order to take those tickets only, not songs on singles and albums. After they bought singles and albums and get the tickets as many as possible they can, they try to sell those singles and albums excluding the tickets on Yahoo Auctions or other auction sites. This phenomenon has been bashed in Japanese society. Such as 48 groups tend to push to sell their singles and albums especially to young imatured teenagers. Then 48 groups can get million hits easily by the bonus tickets. The fans do not buy songs, but tickets only. And more 48 groups operation teams have been squeezing monies from those young people. I don’ know what kind of reactions will be occured in RI, if JKT48 OT will attach any bonus ticktes to the album that JKT48 will release in Jan. 2013. I worry if almost same phenomenon will be happened even in Indonesia society. Sorry, if I talk abut different topic on this wall. Wishes,

      Hmm..there are already some people who realized how the 48 groups sells their CDs and started to questioned the method if it’s going to be applied locally. But for me personally, this “cheap” method is the best way to at least getting rid a minuscule part of piracy problem here in Indonesia although this method could end up as a laughing stock instead.
