DO be polite.
DON'T use profanity.

DO spell-check and grammar-check your letter.
DON'T use 13375p33k.

DO use a word-proccessing program such as Word (I bet 90% of you have it).
DON'T write your letter with colored pencils, crayons, magic markers, pig feces, or your own blood.

DO use your real name.
DON'T use a pseudonym like SlAsHmArAuD th3 M4D 1337 h4xx0r.

DO print neatly on the envelope, or use a printer.
DON'T eat powdered donuts while mailing it. You don't wanna know what problems that will cause.

DO send a letter.
DON'T send bombs, pornographic material, or animal parts.

also don't write a lot on the outside, or draw a picture of futurama
because if they can identify without opening it that it's from "those futurama fans" then they will likely not open it, just throw it away.

Keep the presentation simple, don't use fancy fonts or anything like that. You wanna make your point heard, so distractions are a no-no.

Be precise and to the point, yet passionate in your support of the show. Be carefull not to go into rant-mode, and give constructive critisism rather than just blaming.

Be sure to adress the letter properly, seeing their names misspelt is sure to press the buttons of big egoed execs.

Oversea writers, be sure to apply enough postage, but don't go overboard either. If it underpostaged (is that a word?) it wont reach the destination, if it's grossly overpostaged (is that a word?) they'll probably think it's a letter bomb, and alert the SWAT-teams.

If you don't live in America I suggest that you go to your local Post Office and buy some AIR LETTERS. In England a 6 pack is only 2:20 and that covers postage. On the packaging surrounding the paper it reads "AIR LETTERS, 6 Post Paid, To Anywhere in the World". When you buy them the postage is included in the cost which garantees that it will get to FOX. Also Air Mail is faster.

here are some things to consider putting in your letters:

1)moving to a different time slot
2)the problem pre-empting causes
3)doubling up on new episodes (showing 2 in a row) to catch up to get on schedule


any more suggestions are welcome!

And if you really can't suppress the rage, write two letters.  Go hog wild on the first one to get it out of your system.  Then write a calmer, more intelligent second one and send the second on to FOX.

DON'T tell them how to do their job.  Nobody likes that.

DO: Explain how it's a program that a large veriety of ages can enjoy. My family all watch it so I will say that, and FOX likes to think it's programs provide family entertainment.
