Where are you letting people know about this? Are you recruiting others or is it just the 20 or so people in this thread? I you haven't done so, and if you do plan on doing this, you should start topics in other message boards especially adultswim.com to see what other people think. Because if you set a date, but you have no people, it's going to look pathetic when 15 cans of anchovies show up at fox.

The problem is explaining it over and over and trying to answer every question would take forever and be boring. This is why we need the site. If we post the site, it makes it look more official and more people would be inclined to do it. It would also save time since we could just give a short explanation of AFF and then hand them the website to go to to get all their questions answered and to have the project explained more in-depth.

That's also why we moved the date back so far.

Here here! Let's just get the gol darn site up already! Humph! So, it apears that I missed very little during my time off, just more of the same old indicissive nature that seems to become prevelent in this thread. I have to say, it's getting concerning.

i know that, just wanted to make note of what date is coming up.  When is that site coming up?  If it isn't up by Aug., then I don't see many people joining AFF and mailing anchovies in September either.

There is... it's at http://ssfuturama.wz.cz/aff.php

Obviously I have to finish all the pages and link them, but I've been busy and that's what I have to show for it.  I'm probably gonna fix a few of those pictures and change it up slightly, but I wanted everyone to have a chance to say something about it.  Obviously I reused the ssf layout, but I'll change it more so it looks at least slightly original... 

Again... sorry for the lateness, that's all my fault (expects hatemail or something), but I hope we can still push you through and lift this thing off...  big grin

Pretty good start, I can't wait until you finish the links.  and post the offical mailing date, whenever that is.

Great, when you're done, I'm still posting a thread about it at the large website, at it's Current Events board, and Adult Swim forum. The wheels are in motion!

Good start, but should we pewrhaps have a seperate AFF logo insted of just rercycling the ANA label? Just a sugestion. I may try making something myself if anyone's interested.

Edit: Whoa, I didn't notice the subtle change in the design of the label at first. Very cool. Perhaps a seperate logo isn't needed after all. I'll leave it up to concensus.

I just read this thread today. We're sending achovies and honey to FOX? Sounds like a good idea. If I had read this thread earlier I would've suggested sending a hundred cups of coffee. Maybe one a day for a hundred days. Just a thought.

Wow... where have I been?

Stupid PEEL not making the folders red when there are new posts...

Anyway, I think the site looks great so far! I agree though, we need and actual AFF banner/title image rather than putting the words in the ANA label.

And Ouch- your image is good, but the background is making me want to throw up. Well, part of that is because I am sick right now, and already feeling like throwing up, but... Is there a way to change it to something else?

What's that last character? It doesn't look like an "X." It's supposed to be "A fishy message to FOX," right? Anyhow, that looks really good.

It was bigger, but photobucket sized it down.

And I just checked the last character. It is an "X".

I think I can really use ouch's, mostly because it's almost just the right dimensions I need to replace the other one.  I was just using the other one as a placeholder anyways, I'd resized it so many times I was going to have to redo it anyways.

The Zoidberg Logo is cool.  There can be more than one logo.  But the thing we need to focus on is establishing the date now and getting the word out to people.  Maybe we should have people post or email to the site if they are going to mail or not to get an idea how many mailing there will be.

yes abe, that is axactly what we were going to do. Me and Winna were discussing the best way to do a mailing list, but so far all we can come up with is doing it manually...blech.

You guys are right.  We need to set a date first and then get a mailing list going. 

We can start by going on all the Futurama boards and collecting email addresses.   I always notice people who make comments like, “I wish Futurama would come back”.  We can also collect email addresses of people who post fan art and fan fictions on websites like LeelaZone.com and GotFuturama.com. 

Then once we have a date and the website is complete, we can start notifying people about what we're doing by sending an email to all the email addresses we've collected.

And, of course, talk to the web masters of all the various Futurama websites, and have them post a message on their websites about what we’re doing.

That should get the ball rolling, at least

Anyone want to help me collect email addresses? 

Ouch, Winna-
If I collect email addresses, how can I get them to you?  Is there an easy way to filter out the repeats and make sure we don’t have the same email more than once?

I didn't want to accept this fact but Dr. Morberg is right I mean the tabasco was thousands but were not even a hundred.  Mallzie don't get me wrong I think like you I put a desperate post up recently but it seems more and more believers are quitting.  I hate to say this because I'm optimistic about this,but it seems the ones who have been here longer have realized all we can do is sit back and watch Fox do whatever, I know it sucks but the truth hurts.  Maybe we could all harass them with emails or bad calls. aw well I'll never give up hope but it's hard when you don't have anyone who cares anymore.

I'm somewhat pessimistic about Futurama's return, but I acknowledge that it's not impossible. After all, MG and DXC haven't given up yet. When they despair completely, so will I.

In the meantime though, I'm sure that things will get off the ground quickly once the website is done. My main problem will be figuring a way out to let people know about it without it coming across as spamming.

I'm pretty optimistic about this subject but pessimistic about everything else.  That's why I hoped so much that the one thing I was optimistic about wouldn't fail me.  But I too think that fish would be a good treat for them.

Now that we have the site, we can really recruit. It has only been us since we really havnt had away to get all the info out quickly, but now we do.

And this isnt about Futuramas return. Its about telling them that we're still alive out here.

October 25? That sounds good.

And I dont know if I've said this before, but I'm even getting an ad for this in my newspaper. I have an "in" with one of my friends and his dad.

SWEET deal on the newspaper. But we really have to FUCKING WAIT for the site to grow beyopnd a front page. *taps foot* I want it now! I want it now!!! *jumps on the eggomoter and gets chucked down the trash cute*

Anyone who gives up now due to lack of support (B.B.R.) is being rediculous. We don't have anybody because we haven't started recruiting yet. Sheesh!

The website looks great, by the way.

Winna, Ouch-
Let me know if you need help writing up any material for it (FAQ, Our Mission, etc).  One of the TV shows I worked for, part of my job was writing the monthly fan newsletter, so I’ve done this kind of stuff before.

Wowsers ... things actually happened while I was away from the civilized world for two weeks.  Just out of curiosity, how was the October date decided on?  I have no complaints about it; it's come to the point where a date's a date.  It'll be nice when the website is fully operational.
