Hi everyone!! I'm very familiar with the Great 8 Mandate, and really appreciative of the efforts. Smiley I just registered with the forum even though I'm no stranger to this site. I would hope that we get season 8 of GG, but who knows what wiill happen.

Have you all been voting over at TVGuide? Here's the link to vote for GG (vs. Veronica Mars):

Keep up the efforts!! Smiley

That picture idea is great. I am going to it first thing tomorrow Smiley So should I e-mail my picture to gilmorelover also?

I would prefer that everyone try and post their photos to this thread or send them to me via e-mail.  If GilmoreLover would like to do her own thing and make a collage as well, the more the merrier. Smiley

k guys, so a bunch of pages back we were talking about what the signs should say and here are some suggestions:

Will you be our Lorelai Gilmores for one more season?

We've been Gilmored!

Bring on a Season 8 - In omnia paratus! (which means ready for anything)

Season 8 is Written in the Stars

Oy with the poodles already and sign on for an 8th!

We want Gil-more, don't make us Gil-less

I Support Gilmore Girls Season 8!

Season 8 or bust!

Make sure that you can really see what it says and be creative!~

Also we really should try and get the pictures in soon because I heard that they are done filming April 13th or something

So I think we should try and get all the pictures in and sent by at least next Wed, the 4th

so excited! and since the flower thing seems like it might not work, you should include a bunch of fake yellow daisies in the big envelope with all the pictures

1) I think sending a bunch of paper daisies is a great idea as an alternative to real daisies or alongside real daisies.  Maybe someone can come up with a template for 'em?

2) As for real daisies, try FTD.com or 1-800-SEND-FTD for the FTD network of local florists.  The cheapest arrangement of daisies that I saw was $40 -- but that was for an arrangement.  But I'm thinking that there may be a way to work out a deal that includes something -- less expensive in the way of pottery or something, I dunno.  I'm not so good with the flowers.  (I am a Kirk in need of a Lorelai to give me dating tips just after she turns me down.  Well, that and I'm a Kirk in need of a Lorelai, BID.) Also, I would think that someone might be able to swing a deal with FTD with, say, the Mandate button and, like, some discount code, but I suppose it would depend on the discount and whether flowers could be sent with, like, less of the pottery that increases the prices, just basic pots, whatever.

I personally would rather send real daisies if it could work out (I think everyone that can afford to should probably send one of FTD's Daisy Sunburst Bouquets (one comes in a glass vase, one comes in cute pastel green earthenware vase (that's the one I'd pick.)  The URLs are too long to pick here (at least, with my computer lack-of-knowhow), but go to FTD and just search for Daisies and they'll be there in the top row, at $39.99 each.

3) I think that any and all flowers, real or paper (or both) and any and all correspondence should be addressed to LG and AB directly through the show (ie: c/o the Warner Studio address), not through their agents, which might just make them think we're err, slightly toooooooo Kirk-ish.  If this stuff goes to them directly through the show, it'll get to them, it'll flood the Warner Mailroom, it'll give the campaign focus.  Entertainment Weekly (among other magazines and websites) say that it's all down to Lauren and Alexis, so that's IMO where the campaign should go -- directly to Lauren and Alexis, not to Ellen (yeah, I know, Lauren's been on Ellen's show a lot, but still . . .).  I know that the saying goes that it couldn't hurt to go through other channels, but at this point, I think we gotta let Lauren and Alexis know directly that we still want them.  Or, well, for Kirk-like me, at least Lauren.   Grin

Everyone should post this picture idea on their myspace pages, other websites and facebook especially, so that we can get as many people as possible sending pictures to Heidi and/or posting them here

If we sent paper daisys...we could each have something written on one that we want to say, a message of some sort! I don't know how we'd manage that, but just a thought to go along with the daisy idea. I don't know, maybe whoever coordinates it, would write messages from people on the daisys, then when they open them, they get to read the messages too! Just a thought...I don't know where we really are with this idea.

I love the picture idea! I'll get on it tomorrow when I get home from work! I have a few ideas...none of which include me being in the picture, but definitely support the Great8Mandate!! I can't wait to get started on that! SUCH creative mind you have, Heidi!

There's so many wonderful ideas floating about out there! I almost get confused with them! I'll just wait for Heidi to approve and then go for it! Smiley

Keep it strong!! Long Live Gilmore Girls!!

I'm normally a lurker - but I wanted to stop in and say how much I support the Great8Mandate.  I've written emails to all the Great8 contacts and am sincerely hoping that good season 8 news will be just around the corner.  The CW network would be downright silly to let this show go.

Top 10 Reasons Why Danielle Wants Season 8

10.  Cause Tuesday nights would suck majorly otherwise
9.  Cause I'd have to find a new TV show to get addicted to.
8.  Cause Lorelai is my biggest TV hero.
7.  Cause I couldn't discuss spoilers with my best friend!
6.  Cause I want to see Rory in the real world.
5.  Cause I can't live without my fast paced witty banter.
4.  Cause people have said I've become more witty in the years since I got addicted.
3.  Cause I only got to see one of my dreams for GG come true this season: Lorelai dumping Chris on his butt! Cheesy
2.  Cause 7 is an unlucky number.
1.  Cause seriously...5 episodes isn't enough to get Luke and Lorelai back together and happy.  Besides that, little William Lucas has to make his appearance!

Heh, that's kind of like something I've been saying.  8 ... it's better than 7.  It's bigger, it's rounder, symmetrical ... just makes more sense. Wink

I don't like the number 7.  It's not a nice number.  And really, this season has been a roller coaster.  I love this season and Dave R, don't get me wrong, but it's had it's ups and downs.  8 needs to be more of a happy season!

Participate in the Great8Mandate Fan Photo Campaign

Hello Great8ers,

After seeing Christine's photo of season 8 support, I think we should all try and duplicate its awesomeness



To those who would like to participate, please grab your digital camera or webcam, snap a photo of season 8 support, and post it to this thread.  (If you're unsure how to post a photo, please feel free to e-mail it to me and I'll post it for you.)  From there, in about a week's or so time, I'll print out every single submission, will package things very nicely, and will mail all our photos of support to the CW's bigwigs.  Still with me?

Here's a recap:

1.  Grab your digital camera or webcam

2.  Do something that shows your season 8 support
(Make an 'I love season 8' sign, take a photo that displays your Gilmore DVD sets, snap a picture of you and the Great8Mandate thread displayed on your monitor ... be creative!  The possibilities are endless.)

3.  Display your photo on this (the Great8Mandate) thread.  If you're unsure how, simply ask for help and a friendly face can offer advice.  Or, e-mail the photo to [email protected] and I will upload the photo for you.

That's it!  You're done. 

Please take note, you can still participate in this idea even if you don't want to post a photo of yourself.  There are many, many ways to show season 8 support ... and you can choose to be in the photo or not.

Questions, comments, or suggestions?  Let me know!

~Heidi

I just saw this on "Kristin's Chat" spoiler page


"Marshall in Miami: Who is winning Save One Show? Please say Friday Night Lights!
-I can tell you that the leader is ahead by less than three percent—so, it's a tight race! We'll post an update with current standings this Friday, so watch for that. Voting closes Apr. 6. "


So on friday we'll get a sense of where GG is and what it will take to make it win! Keep on voting!!!!


The show must go on!
