So, I had an idea and I'm wondering if you folks over here would be interested in helping (mods, please feel free to tell me to go away if this is out of line :-D).

By now, we all know that SG1 is not coming back for an 11th season, like we had all hoped. And while there will be at least 2 DVD movies, it's still not quite the same. I had this sort of epiphany last week about how much I love this show. Like really love it. And I wondered what I could do to say Thank You to the cast and crew and all the other fans for 10 great years of adventures and for introducing me to a great new community of friends. At first I thought, "Maybe an ad in Variety?" But just a half page in black & white costs almost $5000. So, a friend suggested a local Vancouver paper. They can do a full page, black & white, Saturday and Sunday for $3625.86can. Now, that's still quite a bit of money and we don't even have to do a whole page.

What I'm wondering is, would folks here be willing to do another small fundraiser thing to try and get an ad in that paper? I'm thinking we should do it fairly soon as the second half of season 10 is about to start airing in the US and it should probably go in before that completes airing.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Yea? Nay?

Thanks for reading. :-)

Now that it's finaly become public, please can you look at the post at Gateworld HERE and the responce from the steerers over at the yahoo group and the campaign web site HERE. I don't know what the responce of the mods on here will be, but I think it's rather important that everyone see this, and as you're not all on the yahoo list then, this seemed the best way to go about it.


It is EXTREEMLY important to the future of the campaign, and though it will upset some people it does mean that there IS a future for SG-1, even beyond the two movies already anounced.

Question regarding sales on Amazon...does buying from the 'New & Used' sellers count towards the DVDs Amazon sale count/rank?

Is it better, in terms of supporting the show, to buy less seasons at the full Amazon price, as opposed to buying more seasons at used prices? I don't have a terrible amount of money to spend on DVDs right now, but I'd like to do what I can.

I am so sick of good shows being cancelled.

So I'd just like to inform you all that Michael Shanks now has a Save Our Stargate bracelet courtesy of MOI and he really fell in love with it. Also they have been a big hit at the Burbank SG-1 Creation Con and a lot of people are wondering where do they get em. :)

So my monkey is less one collar but he didn't mind giving it up for Michael. *snerk*

Just thought you should know :) So lyndynasty thank you again for these! *smooch*

Also sad news, he's pretty much confirmed there will be no Season 11 (because if there was, they'd get ready to start shooting for March) but there will be TWO movies and the last ep will NOT resolve anything. Doh!

Also if you didn't already know, it is pretty much ALL about the money. Sci-Fi has NO money in SG-1. They have money in SGA. SG-1 is too expensive to make (like 2 mil an ep) where SGA is 1 mil. So it's not a popularity issue. It all comes down to money. I've had this told to me by more than a few sources. Very sad news, but well that's politics unfornuately. The cons will continue, there's movies, possible other things, so um yeah at least the franchise will live on.

Oh and to end, Colin Cunningham, Cliff Simon, and Michael Shanks really are the NUTS! (meaning as they say in my Poker Room, they are serious Aces. Nut flush is totally what you wanna have because it's unbeatable, so when someone says that something is the NUTS, it means it's a REALLY good thing.)

But I just think it's cool that Michael loved the bracelet. Actually JR, Cliff, and Colin all thought they were kinda neat too :) So yep, total hit. I so love mine. And Danny loves his. Hee :)

Forgive my naiveté, but with the movies getting the green light, is it a given that it's all over? I only ask because people said there was hope as long as the sets weren't torn down and they're not done filming, etc. So is this it then?

Okay so yes I screwed up but everybody PLEASE remember that I had to fill 70+ orders accounting for 180 bracelets BY MYSELF. So just cut me some slack and I'll make sure I fix my f*ck ups.

In the future, I will NOT be coordinating anything else like this. And I will also be handing control of this group off in the near future to one of the other moderators since I apparently can't do ANYTHING RIGHT.

Okay just thought I would let everyone know that I was finally able to mail everybody their bracelets this AM.  I'm still figuring out how many bracelets we're sending to the cast/crew and I'm also waiting on something else special to come in before I send the bracelets to the production offices.

So, peeps in the US can start looking for their bracelets within the next week.  For our international members...I have no idea when you can start looking for your's.  All the international packages went out Air Mail so it shouldn't take them that long to get to you.

Just post a comment to this post if you'd like to say you recieved your bracelet(s).

Also, thanks for being so understanding about it taking so long for me to get the bracelets out and thanks to all those who've publically and privately sent me well wishes.  I'm doing better but my back is still in pretty bad shape and will be for some time yet.  But thanks for all the thoughts and virtual hugs.  :)
