Those all sound like great ideas, but I'm nor really sure if thats actuall true. I mean it was just on a forum so it's hard to say if its actually true or not.

Actually I think that is true, as I also found the same text a couple of days ago. I think I saw it on the website that was posted on tvguide.com (I suppose it was to save VM or for a VM-movie) ... however, I was lurking too Smiley

Don't know what to do with this information though ... I think doing the same thing would be - well not very creative. I remember that in my first or second post here after the registration, I suggested making an ad (like a big banner) or even tv (I knew back then that this is waaay to expensive) .. but maybe we can still put something up like this? At least to get attention? Of course in this case it would help to drag people here again .. I am sure there are still soooo many people who are disappointed about the cancelation and who want the show back.

@Leire: I LOVE your creative work! Although I could only open the second one "If I could write" the other one said something like 'access denied' .. but you did a really great job and I'll think of way to use this in our campaign. May I ask you if you found the chords on the internet? I think after more than a year of not playing it's time to grab out my guitar again  Grin

it would be great to create such a big project! but i think that we'd maybe need a homepage first because IMO people would pay more attention on it than on this forum. i know it was already suggested several times, i just wanted to mention it again. do we already have someone to make a website?
if VM fans are putting up something like this to get attention, we could do it too to get more attention.

Yeah, actually Heidi said a few days ago that she's already working on a homepage but she'll still need some time, cause she wants everything to be okay with it. I am glad she's already taking care of it (*prettystick*) cause I also think that we are going to need this homepage to inform more people about the Great8Mandate.

Someone on Fanforum I think is making a website aswell. Strangely enough, they came up with the idea to make a website to fight for a movie the same time you guys did. I don't know if she is making a website just dedicated to getting a movie or if she is making it to save GG all together though. Oh well, 2 websites can't hurt! Wink May even be better that way!

Two things

@ Rob: at IMDpro I came across a different contact address for Alexis Bledel

Endeavour Agency (talent agent Megan Silverman)
9601 Wilshire Blvd, 3rd Floor
Beverly Hills, CA 90210

I hope we haven't been sending our daisies etc. to the wrong address!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, seeing the name of her agent, and knowing that any chance of a renewal mostly hinges on Alexis changing her mind, I was wondering if it wouldn't be a good idea to start working on her agent (and via her agent on her), ie making them aware of how disappointed her fans are, and how much good it would do her reputation and popularity if she were to come back on her decision (no threats or slanging-matches of course!)!

@ Heidi

How's the work on that web-site/home-page coming along? I think that would be a major help in getting us better organized and giving us a better overview of the goings-on, as well as a window to the outer world. I'm just very afraid we're starting to turn in circles here, and that this thread is getting very incestuous. Look at nevaeh11084 only gathering the favourite quotes of 5 people!

@ Nevaeh
Maybe you should try posting on some other of these threads (against the rules of the forum, I'm sure, but necessity has no law!). I myself am still thinking about my favourite quote (so many to choose from), but I think the list posted a bit earlier, of the episode titles changed to suit the G8M is also a terrific idea!

Hey how about along with a website, we make a LJ community?! LJ is a pretty big commuity website that gets quite a bit of attention, almost everyone has one so maybe having a LJ would help. People could friend the community and stay up to date with updates concerning new projects and any new news we get. It would also be handy for advertising the website that is being made. I would be happy to make it if enough people want it and would join it. Smiley What do you guys think?

I'm just very afraid we're starting to turn in circles here, and that this thread is getting very incestuous. Look at nevaeh11084 only gathering the favourite quotes of 5 people!

Don't worry about how few people there were giving quotes. Someone (can't remember who) put together a poster a couple pages back with names of S8 supporters on them and she had over 100 names on it so don't worry, we still have support. Just give the quote thing time. Smiley A website would help though!

Thank you Divine, glad you liked it. I'm trying to download Reflecting Light on my other computer,and it's working fine foe me.
Anyway, I learnt how to play guitar for a year, and then I learnt by ear, so those are "my chords".
Although, I've found a couple of sites for you, where you can find the chords. I know that the ones for If I could write, are the ones that I use. But I use different tune for the other one.

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/sam_phillips/if_i_could_write_crd.htm If I could write
[url]http://www.chordie.com/chord.pere/www.ultimate-guitar.com/print.php?what=tab&id=319885 or http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/s/sam_phillips/reflecting_light_crd.htm[/url]  Reflecting light

Hope I helped you.

If you look at the following Jericho Fan Campaign Websites, maybe we can get some other ideas on how to get Gilmore Girls back on the air.   They have written and called Leslie Moonves, President and CEO of the CBS Corporation. They are getting some positive feedback. CBS Corporation is a stakeholder in the CW. People should e-mail and call to let them know how disappointed they are with the cancellation of The Gilmore Girls.

7. Love, Daisies, and Season 8

8. We are kayaks, hear us roar! Season 8!

9. We don't want to say goodbye to Daisy Miller

10. We got magic to do…. Save the Girls!

11. They Save Gilmores, Don´t They? Save the Gilmore Girls

12. Gilmore State of Mind

13. The Prodigal Show Returns

14. P.s. I lo… Gilmore Girls

15. Back in the Saddle Again – Season 8

23. Love and War and GG season 8

24. Copperboom and get us that season 8 already!

I know they aren't all quotes but still. Smiley You don't have to if you don't want to though, just an idea. Wink

Actually, I knew that one.  I just used the Entourage rule -- go for the managers (the Erics) rather than the agents (the Ari's).  Some of the actors only have talent agents listed, some have both managers and talent agents listed.  Wherever there was a manager, I went with the manager rather than the agent.  Another poster is proofreading a *bunch* of addresses for me -- and I'll be sending her another batch over night (or tomorrow night, depending on how bad my insomnia hits me tonight.)

@ thegirls4ever -- Re:  An ad page -- I'm going to be evasive on this one for the moment.  (That's, yes, a definite maybe, but I won't explain why.)  But regarding VM's chances, I wouldn't worry about it.  VM's ratings were so bad that their getting a fundraiser going for an ad page isn't going to do a thing to get that show revived -- its ratings were just too terrible, so they're just basically doing a thank you ad and disguising it as a Save Our Show ad. 

Yes, that begs the obvious question of, well, doesn't that amount to what we're doing, too?  Uh, nope.  Gg has been too highly rated -- its end was due to a contract dispute, not due to ratings.  The shows that do get revived get revived because the ratings are there and all that it takes is convincing the right people to uncancel it -- usually, that's the network, which is hard enough as it is because any network is really a team of businesspeople, but this time it boils down to convincing one actress and *maybe* her veteran co-lead (who may not need convincing) to come back to the show.

The talks to revive Jericho for an 8-episode midseason replacement thus provide a far more plausible example of a campaign that works than Veronica Mars's campaign.  The first thing you've got to do is have a show that has the ratings that make it worth saving -- Gg and Jericho have it, VM doesn't.  So step two is getting the actresses back to the table.

FTR, the costs of an ad in Variety and/or the HR are so high that they haven't even really gotten close to the fundage of a real add, however they're doing the fundraising.  A decent-sized one-time ad in Variety costs in the $4-$7K range depending on size and there are a few other things that would need to be worked out.  (I'm saying, being evasive until heatherkilpatrick is free to kibbitz again).

@ go_clo -- I'm actually encouraged by the news that someone on FanForum is building a Gg site now.  Please track down the person at FF and find out if it indeed is a Save Gg site as this could turn out to be one of those ways to pool our resources that I was hoping would happen all along.

@ Frannie530 -- Please, if you have been talking to someone from the Jericho campaign, ask them questions about how they did their campaign. I think that they had somewhere around a month's lead time to start their campaign before we did because Gg was cancelled so late in the season and during such a rollercoaster period that we didn't know what to think was going on whereas Jericho fans had the idea from the ratings for quite some time that Jericho was really on south side of the bubble, thus, when the Nuts! line happened, they were already organized whereas we're still in the process of organizing and are IMO right about where we should be, going on for about a month and on the verge of expanding.  Anyway, find out what they've done that can be applied to Gg, find out what you think they've done that we've also done that you think we could be doing better and how and why they're dong it better.

@ Also, could *somebody* please tell me why I created a petition at PetitionOnline (which is the same one that the Jericho petition is on) two weeks ago and I still haven't received any activation notice or anything?  If you know how to get a PetitionOnline petition up quickly, please let me know and I'll send you a copy of the petition I done wrote up.
