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

The Welcome Post is so long and your summary was so well-written that I'll figure out a way to make what you just wrote into its own FAQ post.

One more order of business for everybody:

I've seen a lot of "Why don't you post the petition/project/whatever" at such-and-such a site.  These are great ideas and I don't want to quash them, but it *can* be confusing to wade through -- I know I must have lost track of *something* by now.  So I think a couple of guidelines ought to be followed:

1) If you're not the originator of the given project you'd like to see posted to another group, please PM that Project's Creator/Leader and see if s/he wants the help to publicize that project in those given forums.  The Project Leader's need may be as simple as posting at the given website a link to the post announcing the project here.

2) If you know a place that would be responsive to a project, such as the petition, then lurk at that website for a page or two, then, if no one else has posted the link to the petition or project, you should feel free to go on ahead and post the link yourself.  There are a lot of sites out there and though gg.org and FF are going to be pooling their resources to some extent, there's always going to be places within Gg fandom that hear the news later rather than sooner and not all of us are going to be aware of all of those places, so we really do need you guys to spread the word.  For instance, I *don't* post to The CW's Lounge website, even though I'm registered there, as I've *got* to limit the number of sites I post to. 

3) So, seeing as how it's a board that I had to pull away from a while ago for the sake of time demands, if anybody wants to risk posting the petition link as a new thread to E!'s Watch With Kristin, be my guest.  The E! Board's VM fans are still very bitter about Gg winning the SOS Award, but there even then, a lot of the VM fans who are bitter about Gg's win are *still* Gg fans.  And yes, there are a lot of Gg fans even outside of that nonsense at E!'s Watch With Kristin boards.  I'm just sayin' post the link and be prepared to have an interesting conversation or three.  Please let me know that it's covered by posting here when you've done it. 

  -- Rob

*Prettystick* for that one.
Lovin' the Facebook stuff, but I don't need ANY more reasons to let Facebook distract me from ... well, life.  LOL

If anyone is a frequent Myspacer, that's a good one, too.  Or LJ.  Or Xanga.  Any networking sites like that. 

@ Rob What if I set up a very simple HTML page -- it will have your Welcome Post, my welcome stuff, links to any and all project posts and contact info.  It won't be a real webpage -- Heidi's got that covered (and I *prettysticked* her for it!).  But just simple easy, one page where quick information can be gotten in a few simple scrolls.  I could do it on Friday evening.  It's not going to be super gorgeous or anything -- Heidi's got that covered, too.  It'll be very basic, very simplistic, minimalist, etc.  Just something that we can both post in our sigs and with our frequent posts ... new to the thread? Click to see what's going on.  Something like that.  Don't want to steal Heidi's thunder and I'm sure whatever she's getting done is fantabulous Cheesy.  This wouldn't be anything like that, just ... quick.

Magazine Message Boards!  OMG!  Why did it take me this long to remember -- oh yeah, because I'm not in that demographic.  If any of you know your ways around MBs of magazines in Gg's target demos -- I'm talking magazines that us guys don't read, (although I've read Redbook on occasion anyway) or those aimed at younger demos (are Jane or Sassy still published?  It's not like I *want* to keep track of those magazines), Teen Vogue, Teen People, Teen Platypus, whatever.  Somebody please post the petition link in those places?

ETA -- Don't forget to spread the word about the petition at http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/great8mandate to friends by email and encourage them to forward the petition link to their friends and to their friends' friends and so on and so on and so (like the old shampoo commercial).

Season 8:  Because it's either that, or we petition Lauren to take over Celebrity Poker Showdown.  (Or maybe we could do both . . .?)

I've signed the petition. I wish I had money for daisies etc but I'm on a very fixed income but I try to do what I can. That Jerico news was very encouraging. Let's not give up. If they can do it , so can we.

Have a great day!  Lori

Oh and Rob you can add this to your quotes... "Season 8... because Sookie can NOT have the worlds longest pregnancy!"  Shocked

Yvonne (pinkpaisley) and I are working together on the new site.  We're going to make it as inclusive as possible so that all Gilmore supporters (no matter what you support) can find information and participate from one central location.

~Heidi

Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know we're working on it. I will keep everyone at FanForum updated about the progression.

Hey all! I'm about to go to college to talk to a professor..but I wanted to post this first.
So I've been trying to search all the orgs., forums, sites..whatever about Gilmore Girls in order to let them know that we need people (lots of people) to sign up the petition, and also help us with the Great8mandate. I've found some of them, and hopefully this afternoon I'll write posts in there to ask for help. If anybody can send me more websites for this, I would be really glad.

Have a nice day everyone! It's so sunny and pretty in here (too bad I'm on my finals...)

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

So, I was wonder, since the Daisies may be too expensive, would mailing prettysticks (say, glittery pens?) be a good alternative drive?  Does anybody think that a pen in the mail would scare them, or is that on the level of Jericho sending peanuts?

ETA I sent a request to Michael Ausiello to post the petition link at his Ausiello Report blog and Ask Ausiello column.
