I just looked up the save jericho petition and they have 113959 signitures.

Cool!  I think that we can do that.  4.4 million viewers of Gg, that's, like two and a quarter percent of Gg's audience at the most.

BTW, anybody posted the petition to the CW Lounge, yet?

So it's official, Jericho has been renewed for a 7 episode season with the possibility of more! Normally this would encourage me but there are different circumstances surrounding the Jericho cancellation and the Gilmore Girls cancellation. Ugh I wish the cast wanted to come back, we would have an S8 right now if they did want to! Cry

oops, posted before I was done because I have fumble fingers...people wanted to save the show before, so maybe somehow we can reach more people and get them to sign our new petition. I am contacting everyone I know who watches and spreading the word.

I was thinking; should someone bring up the Jericho announcement on the CW boards or Blog? Maybe it would generate more awareness.

**GG QUOTE POSTER PROJECT**

plese send me {[email protected]} your fave Gilmore Girls Quotes, the episode it was in, your name and city & state.
I am sending it JUNE 12 {one week from today!}

*What I am thinking of doing is using "its too soon" {lorelai 7.22} as the main quote {in the middle} and put other quotes around it a bit smaller. I want to get quotes from all the seasons and all the main characters. I am also going to write a letter and sign everyones name that sends me quotes. so far I only have 5 names...I know we can do better then that!!*

Nevaeh ...

I can send you the list I already have.  There's no sense in you doing double work that's already been done.  Smiley  PM me your email address.  It has over 200 names on it.

That is excellent news for the Jericho fans and does give me some hope! However, not to be discouraging or anything but the Jericho cast wants to come back, it was the network that cancelled the show. If the girls wanted to come back but the network cancelled it, I think with all the campaigning we've been doing, we probably would have already gottan an S8 by now.

Still anything is possible! I think that if we get this, we will be part of the TV history. We will be the show refured to by all future campaigners trying to save their shows! Like what we did this whole campaign about 7th Heaven whenever someone lost hope, but instead of saying "if 7th Heaven can do it, then we can" people will be saying "if Gilmore Girls could do it, then we can!" and I don't know about all of you but I want our show to be the one refured to by campaigners like us! Smiley And yes I realise how unbelieveable corny that all just sounded but hey, I don't mind sounding corny!

Why don't you use the quotes/episode title adjutments we came up with for letters, sigs and avis a while ago? Smiley

Quote
1. Will you be our Lorelai Gilmores for one more season?

2. We've been Gilmored!

3. Bring on a Season 8 - In omnia paratus! (ready for anything)

4. Season 8 is Written in the Stars

5. Oy with the poodles already and sign on for a Season 8!

6. Once the Gilmore Girls are in your life, they're in your life forever!

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

16. The Reigning Lorelai – You can make it happen

17. Say Something – Save Gilmore Girls

18. I Get A Sidekick Out of Gilmore Girls

19. 7 Is The Loneliest Number - Bring us a season 8

20. Merry Fisticuffs - Happy to fight for season 8

21. Partings - Don't make us part with GG

22. Last Week Fights, This Week 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

If I can advise -- can we please not use "Will You Be Our Lorelai Gilmores?" on these? I've spent two weeks now (and some of my own money for the paper) to print up huge banners that say "Will You Be Our Lorelai Gilmores?"  I think the Quote Poster project is a fun and good idea, but let's keep the slogans separate so it's clear that each project is separate and it shows that in addition to being collective -- there are also many of us out there.  It will also help the agencies who work with the stars to keep track of where which projects came from, if they choose to send a reponse.

Thanks. Cheesy

Hi everyone,

Sorry I've been AWOL the past few days -- I'm taking 12 credit hours in a 7 week semester and the semester is almost over, so I'm just trying to keep my head above water (and books).  Smiley

Anyway, I have several notes and tidbits ...

First of all, thank you to everyone who thanked me.  I prettysticked you all back.  (I'm pretty stoked that I can do it now, so I do it whenever I've got even the slightest good reason. Wink )

IMPORTANT ORDERS OF BUSINESS

1.) Project Creations

I want to applaud all the individuals (Neveah, etc.) who are taking it in their hands to take on their own project.  Myself, Rob, Heidi and all the other members here truly appreciate it.  That said, it would be really great when you're about to introduce one if you could PM Rob and I to let us know.  The reason I say this is that Rob and I have been talking via AIM and email a lot, coming up with several ideas for future projects and campaigns -- some that are going to encompass some of the things you guys are talking about.  So if you PM us, we can let you know if it's something that's already in the works.  Between the two of us, we have a lot of experience with the media and design and in general, annoying the heck out of people so they listen to us by whatever means necessary.  Cheesy Wink

Also, you might be saving yourself a lot of work.  For example, I have a list of 200 fans and growing, with locations and ages that I can pass on to anyone who needs it for any projects they are doing.  The list is compiled with the first name, last initial and location.  I have an extensive database with location and household relationships as well and last names.  This I won't pass, but I can get you age information if necessary if you let me know who.  So again -- if you need the list, PM me your email address and I'll send it to you.

We all really appreciate any individual work and projects you are doing!
  Even though you're doing it on behalf of all of us, there is an individual sacrifice of time and energy that goes into each of these things and we ALL understand it.  That said, make sure your project goes through these sorts of steps -- check with me and Rob to make sure it isn't already being done, and also, make sure it's got a clear vision.  For example, if you're making a poster, you might not want to put "Will you be our Lorelai Gilmores?" on it again, since those have already been sent.  If yours is unique, it will stand out more and each project will come across as a clear, new message backed by hundreds, not just the same one over and over again.  Smiley  This is so your work gets all the credit and "notice me!" time it deserves -- 'cause it does. Cheesy

2.) FYC Ads

Many of you have shown an interest in an FYC Ad for Variety.  You should all know that Rob and I are in the midst of coming up with a plan to get us one as well.  It's going to involve EXTENSIVE fundraising -- but something that you will all love! (I promise!)  I will be disclosing information about this on Sunday morning, Sunday evening at the latest.  So check back here around 11 a.m. EST.  So if you're looking for a way to contribue to something big and get a lil' something out of it yourself, hang tight -- it's coming up!

3.) Searching for Gilmore Girls quotes for a project or letter?

www.wikiquote.org is your one-stop-shop for Gilmore Girls quotes.  Seriously, the Wiki people are geniuses.  They've got 'em all!  www.imdb.com isn't a bad resource either.

4.) Want to get your name out there?
I'm going to continue adding to the database as I send more and more letters out and to keep a list going for any projects people might need.  If you want to get your name -- and your friends and families names out there please PM ME with the following information ...

Name:
Age:
Location:
Household members supporting an 8th season of Gilmore Girls:

I say PM so I can keep it straight from the rest of the thread and it doesn't get lost.  Smiley
There is no deadline for this, so keep 'em coming!


For a few people ...


@ Rob -- can we get some of this included in your welcome post?  It might help.  Cheesy  Thanks!

@ Stracciatella -- I saw your comment about having more participation in each individual project -- you'll be supppper happy to know we had over 200 on the PR letter project/poster project.

@ Junkie & IMawl4GG -- Thanks for the thanks. Smiley

Thanks everyone ...

And if you need to get in touch with me about anything in a hurry, PM me.  I do get an alert that I've been PMd, and I check it regardless of whether or not I have time to make it to the thread.

Smiley

The power of fans is definitely strong!!

CBS has announced that after fans sent  more than 25 tons of peanuts, they decided to renew Jericho for an abbrevaited season.
