I have it on myspace page and this is what I did. I right clicked and then went to properties. I then copied the url and placed it within the put the <img src="URL.gif"> html . For example, if you were to go to my, myspace profile and were able to edit the About Me section you would see this ><Center><img src="http://www.gilmoregirls.org/other/button8b.gif"></Center>

Hope that helps. Wink

Okay so I've just had chat with Heidi, and while we both agree it would be ideal to have a target date to inundate the network with letters of Great8Mandate support, it would seem that at the moment, any reponses would be better than none.†

I know it is nerve racking trying to come up with things to say but just make it heartfelt, and to the point.† Let them know how you feel and what you want.† To get people started and give an idea of the direction your letter can take, I'm going to include with this post a copy of my email to Dawn Ostroff:




Dear Ms Ostroff

I have been a fan of the wonderful Gilmore Girls show since it first aired in Australia.† Unfortunately, the airing of the show over here on free to air TV has been extremely sporadic, however this has not deterred my spirit.

I took it upon my self to seek out all possible information via the net, and was fortunate enough to stumble onto the most wonderful fansite in GilmoreGirls.org.† This site is extremely friendly and well run, and more to the point, full of over 6,500 members all there for the same purpose, to discuss and discover all things Gilmore related.† Not to mention the thousands of fans that pass through the site on a daily basis.

Through seven seasons we have marvelled and delighted in the lives and loves of our favourite Girls, not to mention a wonderful ensemble cast of characters.† We've been up, we've been down, and we've been spun around by the wonderful dialogue provided to and delivered by such talented actors.† We've mourned the loss of the show creator and embraced the arrival of the courageous new writing team led by Dave Rosenthal.† And now we embark on our next journey.† The Great8Mandate.† This project was started on the GilmoreGirls.org to gather collective support for the future of Gilmore Girls via way of season 8.† This is an initiative I support whole heartedly, as I believe we need more time.† There are so many wonderful things to explore from this point on, and after seven years of waiting for certain relationship outcomes for our Girls, I for one would love for this to play out over time.

I would hope that over the seven seasons of loyalty provided by fans, that the CW, would return such loyalty and move heaven and earth to ensure a future season of this wonderful show.

Long live Gilmore Girls!!


Yours sincerely
Caryn


So there is a start.† Use this, ammend this or come up with something completely different, but please get cracking.† We need to make sure a lot of responses go through for this to have any effect.† And remember, get everybody you know to send something through also.† My Dad, brothers, husband, and his workmates are all sending emails, and they don't even know it!!! Wink Cheesy

Long Live Gilmore Girls

 Grin Well that's fair enough.† Thanks for your efforts Dayna.† See you tomorrow.

Edit: OK, so I've sent off little messages accompanying my letter to the 5 email addresses Heidi has provided in the first post.† A copy of the letter will also be posted to all the other addresses provided in the next day, however they are coming from Australia, so they may take a week or so to arrive.† Smiley

 Star Let us know when you've sent your support!† High Five

after thinking that i would have no chance of finding the words to put in a letter i decided to have a go and see what i could come up with.
to my suprise i filled a page.
i was thinking i wouls send it to all the addresses listed but i was hoping to find the fan mail addresses for all the main characters as i dont think it would hurt to send them to as many people as i can.
i think i have it ready to send i would love if i could get some feed back first (not shure how much the spelling differs from Australia and the USA though)

Dear (insert name hear)

I am one of the many Gilmore Girls Fans and also a member of www.gilmoregirls.org
I was a late comer to the Gilmore Girls but at 25 I am still a strong follower, Even in Australia where unfortunately they have only aired to the middle of season 5. I am proud to say that I have finally received my season 6 DVD set and am currently making my way through and catching up on all the things that I have missed, like wise I hope to be doing the same this time next year or hopefully earlier with season 7.

Sadly though I come to the point of my letter which is to say that I have herd talk that season seven may be the last we see of the Girls.
I hope that this isnít true and that we will at least get to see the Gilmore Girls continue on for another season to help us see there stories come full circle.

Watching the show, over the last year especially has lifted my spirits.
Unfortunately I had a miscarriage  last year and I know it sounds corny but having the comfort of the show was a blessing with all the beautiful characters and the crazy story lines, the closeness of the characters and the realness of the situations they face, the fact that they could help me cry but also make me smile and even laugh hysterically some times at such an awful time in my life is a testament  to the wonderful show that has been created and I hope can live on a little longer.

I am now pregnant again and Due in August. I hope to be able to continue to watch the Gilmore Girls and to one day be able to share it with my child.

Gilmoregirls.org  is the most fantastic place that so many people just like me get together to discuss all things Gilmore, we discuss each episode, our feelings about each character and the paths they take and everything in between. Our discissions range from very light hearted to extremely in depth.
Currently a large part of our conversations cover the hopes of a season 8 for as many reasons as there are members. We have created the Great 8 Mandate.
Our hope is that by contacting you we may be able to show you that there are so many of us out hear that love the show for so many reasons and that we are very determined to see another season of our favourite and not so favourite characters in our favourite little corner of the world.   

So we ask you
Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please,
Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please, Please,

Let the Girls Continue, Let them make us smile and laugh and cry and even some times yell hysterically at the TV. Let us follow there ups and downs and if only for one more season let us see there lives find the happiness that they have given us and that they deserve.

Please let us see a season 8

Sincerely

Kimberley Shirley
Goulburn NSW Australia.


is this along the right lines? i am going to add the great 8 mandate banner to the top of the letter.
