"As some of you may know, there are some in the community that think the idea for having an LG15 themed storyline around a prom came from the community not our writers. We wanted to make a quick post to clarify any confusion. Many weeks ago, our writers came up with a storyline surrounding a prom. This occurred before we ever saw any posts in the community about holding a community prom. After we saw some of those posts, we thought it was a wonderful coincidence and reached out to the organizers to discuss holding a joint prom on our website with the goal of making it interactive with our storyline. For a number of reasons, those hosting the prom did not think it was a good idea to do the community prom in conjunction with our show. We understood and still did what we could to show our support – some of the cast and crew even “attended.” We moved forward with our storyline surrounding the prom because we think it’s a very cool idea . . . great minds think alike.
This new interactive medium allows the community to have direct contact with the production team and submit ideas and thoughts to the website. Many of these thoughts heavily influence our storytelling and what happens to the characters. This is a good thing and why this medium is so exciting. Unfortunately, this also sometimes leads to accusations that we “steal” ideas from the community. This just is not true. We have great writers that work tirelessly breaking stories that we hope you all find engaging and exciting. This was just a coincidence, but one likely to repeat itself. We just wanted to clear this up to avoid any confusion or accusations.
We hope you enjoy our totally 80’s prom!
