PostSubject: SOSGA and StLC Combine!   Sun Aug 24, 2008 12:10 am

Well Folks!
After extensive emails and MSN Convo's and a little of getting to know one another, we have all decided to combine our efforts in Saving Stargate Atlantis with the site Save the Lost City (linked below)

Save the Lost City

We are still getting the small things sorted, but as we are working together to Campaign for SGA to return for a 6th season and maybe more, we will soon have it straightened out Very Happy

So I welcome all the friendship we will all form from this venture and hope that the Fans we both receive from it will build our Cause 10 fold!

SAVE OUR SGA and OUR LOST CITY

Great new buttons, my aged eyes can read them. Laughing

I was just over at the Save the Lost City site, and while we are co-ordinating with them, there is as yet no evidence that they are co-ordinating with us. Is this one of the 'small things' yet to be sorted out? Razz

Excellent! What a Face

I never doubted it for a minute. Razz

Now let us unite and rattle a few cages! Twisted Evil

Although my letters are coming from Australia and will take up to 10 days to get there, I can't make it by the 1st. No Sorry! Crying or Very sad

I've been spreading the word about our 'First Strike' as far and wide as I can. Smile

It is such a damn shame David Hewlett's site was hacked, there were 3500 potential correspondents registered there. Those of us over at mini-geek are the survivors of the holocaust, probably most of the more active members but still only a fragment. No

We squirrels that are around are doing what we can, and you all ROCK!!
I only hope that DH recent blog is a sign that the site will be back soon. I miss that site and all you guys! Minigeek is great, but DGeek is just fantastic!
I am only glad that there are so many of us squirrels still in contact to band together to get so much done. You have no idea how many squirrels have been a part of these campaigns, and as soon as DGeek is back up, each and every one of you will be credited!!

And of course, on the SOSGA site too if you would all allow it!

I'm getting myself organised to send letters and emails. If I send the letters international express they might get there by the 1st (maybe Question ).

What I am wondering is how we know this is going to be effective? There are 86 of here and 139 registered over at the Lost City site. Allowing for those who belong to both sites, that isn't going to make a very impressive showing. How do we know that thousands are going to join in with this action, and even if they do, how are we going to be able to gage the overall effect?

Forgive my lack of faith but I am very tired, unwell and suffering from a sense of frustrated isolation at the moment. I've seen the outraged comments on various forums and I know Dave Howe had his server clogged (I'll be clogging it on Monday if I can get over the rage I suffer every time I read that @#! interview he gave) but is anything really happening? I feel like I'm boxing in the dark at the moment. Crying or Very sad

This site is being updated as the news happens, and we try to keep the fans involved in all the news and events, but there is only so much we can do. Sad
The Fans that are on the SOSGA Forums and the Fans that are on the StLC Forums have to spread the word as far as they can! Very Happy

Tell the Shop owner down the road...I ACTUALLY did that! He is a SGA Fan, so it wasn't a random telling, but random telling's are just as affective Very Happy

I've told everyone I can but my reach is limited. Do we know how many hits the sites have got?

That's encouraging! Very Happy

I've asked a friend of mine who has better connections to the fan community to spread the word. Does anyone have ideas about publicity beyond the fan community, or is that going to come after we (hopefully) clog the servers and mail rooms on Monday?

Hey there!

Its ongoing - adnw e have a bunch of things that were doing right now;
- We're contacting every news agency and media outlet that we can.
- We're contacting companys who advertise when Stargate Atlantis airs.
- We're have several thousands of leaflets and flyers being handed out at a convention at the weekend.
- We're working on TShirts that people can buy to help spread word - whenever really Razz
- We're contacting as many Stargate, and Sci Fi related sites as we can.
- We're publishing our thoughts and feelings through Vlog format.
- We're using these to create a short Advert which will be featured at an upcoming Con in Australia.

Theres probably something ive missed tbh...

Oh and with regards to stats and stuff - i have the numbers for StLC here. Pleasing figures i must say Smile

Every time I get discouraged, I remember the yahoo question I asked on yahoo answers. Have there been any shows that have returned from the cancellation grave due to upset fans. There are several.

1 - Reba
2 - Charmed
3 - Family Guy (twice) cause the fans went ballistic
4 - Seventh Heaven
5 - Jericho
6 - Scrubs
7 - Cheers

Just to name a few. Apparently Jericho was cancelled and then fans started sending CBS nuts, all kinds of nuts...and they decided that the fans should have another season.

These are just to name a few. So, when I look at all of those, I think...yeah, we really have a chance. Instead of nuts, we're sending lemony stuff. Very Happy This is gonna work out. These guys at MGM and Sci Fi are gonna be so swamped with lemons and mail that they will give in.

Apparently, the show was supposed to end when Pru dies, but the fans got so upset that they rewrote it to include a long lost half sister, Paige, so they'd still have the power of 3 spells. Or so I've been told.

Thank you both for your cheering words. Smile

I shall draw strength from both the stats, and the list of shows that the fans got back bounce but I can't help but wonder, have the arrogant @#! over at MGM ever reversed a descision to cancel a show? Question

Still, tomorrow I shall get back to composing emails for the mass attack on Monday. cheers

My snail mail is all sent, it won't there for 7-10 days (hopefully by next Friday at the latest) but there is just no way around that one without using an extremely expensive International Courier. Nor was it practicle to include anything lemony in an international letter, but I gave them an earful (an eyeful Laughing ).

Noo, Shannon left the show on 'bad terms' i believe at the end of season... 3 was it?. At the same time the shows original runner also left - and Brad Kern stepped up as showrunner and they wrote in Paige as the 4th sister in order to continue the show. The show definitly wasnt cancelled and then brought back Razz

I would of thought, going by the storyline it would have ended/cancelled on the 7th season was it? When they faked their death?

oh well...

Okay!,
In the absence of a video camera, digital camera, phone camera or any other digital recording device; I have followed the suggestions made both here and over on ADB. I made made a simple but legible sign which conveys everything I want to say to TPTB about the cancellation. I then went out and paid my local photoshop to photgraph me with said sign and load the file onto a flash drive instead of making a print. Now I have my somewhat expensive and solitary protest to what address should I send it?

I can't wait to see it! Very Happy
