Announcement - New TABN Website & Store!

Postby TABN Admin » Mon Apr 15, 2013 10:24 pm

The Official Launch of TABN.com!


Attention members of TABN,

We are proud to finally announce the official launch of the brand new TheAlterBridgeNation.com home page! More than just a landing page for the TABN forums, the site is designed to act as a one-stop destination to access all the latest TABN activity, including our Facebook and Twitter feeds, YouTube channel, and featured forum topics. We have been hard at work on the many aspects of this site over the last several months - visual design, social integration, forum integration, and an even bigger announcement... the launch of our official TABN store!



Yes, you asked for it and we have delivered. Alongside our US store we have also created a UK-based store for those of you in Europe. The US store will ship to most of the world including the USA, Puerto Rico, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, Japan, New Zealand, and many more countries including much of Europe. However our European fans will find that the shipping times and costs will be much more palatable when ordering from the UK-based store. Finally, we realize that some countries may not be represented in these stores' shipping areas. If you find you are unable to order from either of our stores, please message an Admin, and we will work with you to arrange payment and delivery.

Please take a moment to browse our brand new logo and first official TABN shirt:

We intend to add various products to the store including hoodies, wristbands, stickers, and more shirt designs as the year rolls on. There are so many possibilities with this store but it ultimately comes down to demand and your requests, so feel free to share your thoughts & opinions.

With that said, as a token of our appreciation for your support and patience, we would like to give back to a couple members of the TABN family. Starting today, we would like to announce a Twitter t-shirt contest!

Here are the rules and guidelines:

  1. It's very simple. Tweet @TheABNation a photo of your favorite Alter Bridge lyric, song title, or both.
  2. Please use the hashtag #TheABNation with our url - http://bit.ly/p6H9jS, and include your TABN username if it is different from your Twitter ID.
  3. Be creative! For example, it could be a of photo of yourself with the lyric/title or just a Photoshopped image; you have full creative freedom. We will look over ALL entries and pick our favorites.

We will pick 2 winners of our choosing, and you may only submit one entry per person. The deadline for this contest is April 29th, and AB fans all over the world are allowed to enter. After the contest ends we will contact you via Twitter to confirm your address, contact info, and shirt size.

Note: If we do not hear back from you in 3 days after the deadline we will have to pick another winner.

After announcing all of this there is a lot of work ahead. We have a ton of ideas for the site - mobile integration (site/forum), video/photo galleries, etc. Finally, we realize that the new site isn't perfect. For instance, the layout renders somewhat incorrectly in Internet Explorer. However "perfect is the enemy of good", and we'd rather make more frequent, consistent improvements, than endlessly delay launching new content. We're just getting started.

So get ready AB Nation… 2013 is the year of Alter Bridge!

As usual, stay tuned to the site and the forum for all updates involving TABN & AB!

Holy hell, this place has been up to a lot of new changes in the last few months/years. First off, I have to say the new shirt/logo looks boss, well done! Secondly, I'm hoping to not be as much of a stranger on here anymore.

Cheers,
Ameya
