any suggestions?Huh

  If you're still looking for ways to help, maybe you can let Australian GG clubs know about the new website (and petition, if the don't know about it).   This week I've been spreading the word in GG clubs on Yahoo Groups and a noticed a handful of Austalian ones.   Just a tiny suggestion, no big deal.   Smiley

For anyone else who wants to help on yahoo, here are the clubs I hit already:
Gilmore Girls Fanclub, Gilmore Girls Rocking World, Gilmore Girls Arena, Gilmore Girls Cafe, GilmoreGirlsStarsHollow, Gilmore_Girls, GilmoreGirlsGalore, Milos_Tree_Hill and a few others.

The fans over there didn't know about the new website or the petition.

thanks for getting back to me on that?? so do u think we all should be still voting?Huh im in australia and really can not do too much. i have been sending postcards and letters to the addresses, with no replies. So all i can do is really vote??? so what do u think?Huh KEEP VOTING?? or GIVE UP voting in TEAVEE.com

If keep voting we need loads of help in that area as at times there is only 2 of us there, where on other shows there are over 10 of them?Huh any suggestions?Huh

Hi Ann
I'm an Aussie too.  Just keep sending the postcards and letters, that is pretty much all us Aussies can do and don't worry about not getting a reply because you won't get one.  The other thing that we could do that I have just thought of is to contact Arena TV on Foxtel and ask them to please make sure we get to see Season 6 & 7.  Channel 9 are showing GG on Sunday afternoons at 4.00pm but they aren't doing a good job of it, we need to see it and to see it in a better time slot like Arena are currently showing Season 4 again (although I think we just commenced Season 5 last night). 

Hope this helps!

Hey Chocolat,
I have been doing the same thing over here in Australia, trying to get the message out.  Could use all the help I can get, so c'mon Aussie GG fans, bombard all the message boards and site you know with the news about the great things the fans are doing all over the world to save the Loraleis!!

Yes.

10,000 is the *current* goal.  No deadline on when to reach it except that if we do reach it by July 28th or 29th (ie: in 10 days or so), I will print them all out and deliver them personally.  If it takes longer than that, then it takes longer and I'll send them by mail, or make other arrangements for someone who *can*deliver them in person to do so.

Do Iwe need that much?  Actually I think that question is better asked as, "do we need that *little?*  let's put it this way:  Jericho got 114,000 or more signatures during their petition drive which was supporting other, more camera-grabbing campaigns (the peanuts being the biggie, the LDDC would be the same for us.)  Given that the show 1) is on The CW, which has a substantially lower number of viewers and 2) that Gg was cancelled in May with little warning whereas Jericho fans had at least 3 months warning due to the ratings and 3) there are always a certain number of fans of any show who are so disappointed in its cancellation that they just don't want to hear about it anymore, 10,000 signatures gathered as soon as we possibly can after the cancellation of the show would IMO be as good as if not better than Jericho's 114K.  Especially since we don't have a Las Vegas Radio DJ organizing our campaign.  Heck, this is the first non-SF/Fantasy genre campaign since Cagney & Lacey that I can think of.  Considering that SF/Fantasy campaigns have 40 years of infrastructure built into them, in some ways, we're doing something very new in trying to get a show revived.

Also, when Heather gets back online (she had a family emergency right after she got back from vacation), we'll be able to start at least one more high visibility project.  Again, the petition will help that.

I hope we get those 5,000 signatures.
That'd be an amazing birthday present!
Too bad I won't be on here if it happens...

Those of us who've been demanding that the Emmys include an equal opportunity for shows not on the Big Four, HBO or Showtime got used to Gg not being represented years ago.  IMO, the academy incorrectly equates any shows on The CW/The WB/UPN as sub-Disney Channel.  (Well, starting this fall, they're right, but that's entirely beside the point.)  Quite a number of Gg fans are also Buffy fans, so those of us Buffy fans are even more jaded about the Academy's lack of taste.  I mean, Boston Legal?!  Ut, no.

haha does anyone watch Greek?  I don't really, but it's on in the background and one of the characters said something along the lines of "why don't we just say what we're all thinking.  why the heck would they cancel gilmore girls?" idk just got me all excited that they mentioned GG.

Anyway, I've been passing around the petition link so I hope we get all those signatures we need, plus some!!

Thanks for passing around the petition link!   We need to reach the 10,000 mark by July 28th so Rob can hand deliver the petition.

I watched that today, I was laughing hysterically because the timing of slipping that line in was great! I love that Cappie character! Especially that speech he gave while dressed in Roman armor. One minute he sounded intelligent and then the next minute his surfer dude self came out.

Rob, what's the word about the 2nd daisy campaign are they going to be sent by the end of this month or do you think we need to extend the date to raise a little bit more money? I would add more but my hours at work have been up and down like a rollercoaster and I have been juggling that with my summer writing class.
