l'Historique de CodeLyoko.fr, année 2012/ 2013 : Renouveau et Apogée
Create a partnership with Moonscoop and professionals
|The partnership with Moonscoop has been created in the majority through a fan: Kerian. Member and ancient moderator on Codelyoko.fr, Kerian has been very active after the end of the series to get information from Moonscoop about the dark sides of it. |
Moonscoop chose Codelyoko.fr like the main site of the community. The criterions of selection like content quality, its community active, and its nice design. At the end of 2011, Moonscoop recognizes our site like its partner.
Start a long to conquer the work world. It is very hard to be recognize in the work world when we are seen only like fans. But we won. Go to the page « Professionals » to see our success.
Our first contacts take place in March 2012: the team of codelyoko.fr has been the bêta-testeurs (?) of the social game in Facebook Code Lyoko in collaboration with 3DDUO to get the visit of their studio in April 2013.
The contacts with Moonscoop are very difficult. Yes, we got some exclusivity, like 6/14/2012 the first official page of Megapod. However, the partnership also represents a lot of constraints: confidentiality contracts, a ben more or less high to reveal information leaked. For the identity of the actors, we had to wait September 2012 to reveal it even when we knew it since June.
The most important thing brought by the partnership digs a presence of every fan-events linked to the series. The 4th July 2012, a member of the team CL.fr represents the community of fans at the casting walk on parts at the Futuroscope (Poitiers). Charente Libre interviews him. The 8th of July, two members of the team are invited officially at the Cosplay of CL to the Japan Exposition being supervisors.
More important: Tuesday, August the 28th, a member of the team CL.fr is invited on the shooting of Code Lyoko Evolution. He got the possibility to reveal the name of the seventh mainly character: Laura.
Lately, in autumn 2012, a person of the team is invited at the focus group of the series to represent “the old fans”, prove of a big trust by Moonscoop.
Finally, the team of Cl.fr got 5 tickets to the preview Code Lyoko Evolution in Paris in December. The webmasters have the opportunity to interview some people inside. We also met a Youth Manager of France 4 who, after interview, showed up our logo on the site France 4 of Code Lyoko Evolution.
The next is more quiet but the links between Moonscoop and Cl.fr are always here : the team got the officially summaries of the episodes and some documents : renders of the heroes, a video to celebrate our 5 million of visits.
The last big event: the organization of the Japan Exposition 2013. Moonscoop got to Cl.fr the reservation of the Kids Space Sunday afternoon…Cl.fr used it to invite two actors for a dedication time.
To re form a skilled team
|Kerian is talking to you : |
Kerian, lonely with his partnership, arrives in a community asleep and a staff who don’t appreciate the universe of Code Lyoko.
Aquatikelfik answered present and helped to relaunch the entire site.
Next to it, Shaka came back and saw the partnership like th possibility to expand the site. Unfortunately, Aquatikelfik who didn’t wanted to involve himself totally in the project left it.
But after that, the team began to expand, Kerian and Shaka hiring different people to help them.
They have been rejoined by a lot of people with some of them who quiet the project because of the important rhythm of work.
But the actual team composed by older and new members, coming of all places like others communities’ gives to your favourite fansite an interessant and important dimension.
The relaunch's key has been the Japan Expo where Kerian, Aquatikelfik, Shaka, Etienne and Wilson met for the first time.
After month of work, the roles are expanded naturally. Kerian handled the extern relations of the site (professionals, other sites, partnerships)
Etienne took the “Medias” part. Formed by Shaka, he became after essential for the updates.
Shaka handled the writing, as usual and the rest. Wilson became a real member of the site, handled technical aspects (Youtube’s chain…)
The first hire has been the Referent Fanfictions Pikamaniaque and Icer. Repaired on the forum, they put on their role wonderfully.
The team is expanded with the fusion between Cl.fr and Codelyokoforum.org, which can see, arrives Zoddo, Azer56, Thran and Apolyon. Julrose also became after. Only Thran, Apolyon and Julrose are active now on the forum, also helping on the site. The network is expanded and other people are repaired. Kasux (CLF.org) and Poppy, already met in the Japan Expo 2012, became FanArt referents.
For the design of the site, Shaka decides to create a network with occasional collaborators. They aren’t members of the team but they work for free with arrangements: some advertise, some gifts.
We have for example Nelbsia, the first member helping the site. But also from DeviantArt (Rui, Bassonist From Hell, Alexis ; 2013). The team can also counts on the graphists of the site (Kasux, Poppy, Apolyon).
CyberjujuM and Johann are two old webmasters who give often their help for the technical aspects.
A partnership very strong is created with Immu (IFSCL on Cl.fr) after the preview CLEvolution who also give his time to help with difficult graphic tasks.
A site to stay afloat
|Relaunch the site but the Forum was undeniable. Sort out, organize, tidy up the topics, tutorials and the rules. |
With a good team like we have, the work was enormous…
The creation of Lyokonetwork by Kerian is detailed low.
Shaka, after conversations with CyberjujuM became autonomous and finalize quickly the updates of the season 4 and then develop a system (like today). Efficiency, of course. After that come the time of innovation: he’d rather wait the end of Evolution to catch this section. But other things see the light of day.

To get ready to welcome CLEvolution, the site will be organized and become the first and unique official site of the Lyokofan’s community. Help and hope!
Kerian started to go through the net to look for some traces of the community like others sites still alive or some secrets projects.
One by one, these sites and these projects was combining to Codelyoko.fr. A partnership to help them to be.
Today, we are so proud to tell you that the most interesting projects are on Codelyoko.fr. Look at the “Partnership” section to see all Kerian’s work.
Become the central platform of the community : En.codelyoko.fr
|The last big project of 2013: Internalization of Codelyoko.fr |
Before the coming of the English version, CL.fr was known all over the world for its quality content and its quickly news. But the site stayed in French, a difficult language for the foreigners.
We used to see that our articles was traduce on Tumblr and other.
The idea of the English version was very old in creators’ mind. However, Cl.fr has a lot of pressure to lead the site in its international dimension.
In November 2011: Everything was started with a friendly partnership with Anglophones on forums (LyokoFreak and CL-evolved). Codelyoko.fr brought them a secret help but real about the translation of the episodes.
The links was very secret but very real especially with one webmaster Xiao and two members: A Queen of Fairys and Kelsey.
In January 2013, Shaka got from CyberjujuM that an English version is created. The work was enormous and so huge… Work on the intern structure of the site. All buttons and images of frame page French and English and the translation!
The work took month, Julien often available in regular intervals. But finally, July, 2013, the 10th: the first version is created and opened. Some sections aren’t traduced yet but the hardest is done. (Fanart, fanfictions)
The Americans started since the opened to traduce all the Episode’s Guide. But, for now, it seems that the English team is busing with the Hungarians. So…wait and see!
