is the futurama fan-o-rama still up and running? this is katey, aka girl from the future, aka gftf, and i helped to start the FFOR with Caitlin and Marissa, a couple years back, when the show was just starting out. i created a website for it, and then i changed my email and lost subscribtion. so, i was wondering,   confused if anyone know is the FFOR is still going on, and if so, where can i subscribe to it again?

Hmmm ... I spoke about that with Marissa some month ago .. and with members of the "new crew" ..
The gist is .. it was transfered to the planet roadmap and is dead ever since ... (link at the bottom the top row, right button). I doubt there will be an issue before season 4 if at all.
Prove me wrong guys and gals ...

well .. i know your go.to/ffor ... it was a sad thing to see FFOR go down and I really hope someone feels entitled to get it back going. Marissa won't rejoin, Cait i never talked to, so my hopes lay on you and the current staff ...
For starters, I added a link to it on planetroadmap to the major search engines ...
I have to say that i rarely read it, but i hated seeing it go down the dumps ... If i can help somehow (but by writing articles, not good at that being the german i am  wink ) let me know FFORs/Jason ...

well i'd be willing to re-start it with you and if i can contact caitlin, that would be awesome.  it would be wonderful if i could find even more people to help start it up again... if you know more people who would be willing to start this thing up again, it would be awesome.

I was just supposed to be the interim editor. I did my best for about a month, but when submissions dried up, it was pretty pointless to keep sending them out. You wanna take over, be my guest. I wouldn't mind submitting.

i don't know yet if i can run the sending script here, but i will see if there is a solution to that ... if you could send me a zipped back-issue archive (the one on planet roadmap doesnt work) and tell me how many subscribers there were (i guess starting over would be easier) that would be great. (email address at the top)

i don't have all the back issues, although i wish i did. i'm sorry about not having them, i think starting over would be easier.

I'm willing to start doing the episode reviews once Season 4 gets under way, I did them for most of Season 3.

Thanks To Daniela for the new block.
FSAC is not just about my art, it's for the fans, any art or fictions will be gratefully received.  I'm not going to go on forever, so if I stop, then without support the site would stop, wish will be a great shame, since it seems to have some popularity

How about I upload the very first and the very last issue of the newsletter in the fanfic forum so those who do not know it can have a look.
additionally .. how about opening a board on PEEL to integrate FFOR ? I could set it so that noone could start new threads (so, only the issues would be there) but everyone (even non-peelers) could respond. Additionally i could point a domain there and change the look (exchange PEEL header).
im still still thinking about how to get the mailing done as out of the 570 subscriptions .. there are probably lots of invalid emails which could get PEEL into troubles as bouncing mails go to the hoster ...
So basically, I would propose to change the NewsLetter to a Web-Editorial with Archive and the possibility to respond to it, if thats wanted. As PEEL is one of the bigger futurama webpages right now (yay  tongue) and I'm sure many sites would be willing to share a link for a link back from that board or even contribute, that could give the letter a quick new start in that form.
Ideas ? Thoughts ? Vetos ?
There should be a fixed Crew working on the next issue each and the next issue should have a fixed schedule so people know when to come and look for it.
Katey, please try to contact Cait, too.

So, upload two issues ?
Update: cant upload the last issue as Jason only gave me Issue 1 to 43 of Volume 1. Jason ?   big grin

sounds like everyone is willing to pitch in! that's great...... by the way, i tried to contact caitlin, no response, did she get a new email?
i have an idea- everyone who is willing to contribute to the FFOR again send me an email telling me what you'd be willing to do! we'll need everything from editors to writers, someone to put out the list, etc. i'll do caitlins part this time, i guess, by getting everyone together and getting the paper out again, and i'll also make a new website like i was making one last time.

btw- about the website, does everyone think frames are a good idea? frames are so much easier to navigate but not all browsers support them, like, 3.0 and below or something doesn't so......... whats the opinion on that?

Frames can definitely be a pain, especially if you use Netscape (I'm now Netscape-free. Yay!).

Anyway, I think mArc has the right idea here. Maybe we could also set up a futurama-l mailing list-type thingy?

well, i could still mail it using a yahoo group.
But i kinda like the idea of letting them respond and having an archive ready. It would still get its own domain like www.fan-o-rama.com  is free and could be used to redirect directly to the post overview of FFOR (the letters).
Also, i think the latest issues have gone some oversized ... 40kb text is too much, a 15kb newsletter is way more appealing to people.
Im not forcing the idea of using a subboard on peel for this on anyone (after all, I'd I pay, so i would do it out of ... the feel that i want it back), but i think a whole page only for the letter is overpowered, cause there wouldnt be anything new for a month or two weeks or whatever. People stop visiting such sites.
Discuss.
(I uploaded the first edition of the newsletter to the fanscript board here so people can see how it was if they dont know it)

if people mean it, i could go and get a domain for it and later either host it (hopefully) or redirect to the real location (for sure)

i think it would be easier to redirect because i know how to use virtue.nu well, and there are no ads that show up, so that would be better to redirect i think.

I'd be willing to be part of the fixed crew. I'd be willing to be an writer, I'd just do little articles and features. But I could run a couple of permanent ones (Like Cayt had quote this and mtvcdm had his site of the week.) but I could do other stuff every week too, so there'd always be a tiny reason to send it out everyweek if I was the only one.

Also is this still on? No-one's posted in over a week. Is everyone who said they were involved still involved? Especially Katey as she was doing most of the work.

I think those involved should plan for a Season 4 come back and get things really well organized till then. Get a private mailing list at yahoogroups or so and add all who want to work on it for organisation things.
