    Post Shippy petition Re S8

    He folks. I know I've only been here a few days, but those 'Affinity' pics if Sam and are the last straw for me.

    On various shows, I have put up with TPTB strange writing decisions, and their ignorance of the fans. I always trusted their jugement until now.

    I've decided to send a letter to the Production/Writing staff, and I would like to attach a petition of names.

    I'f you'd like your name included, please either email me at

    [email protected]

    or post here telling me your name and age as well as your country.

    Thanks

    I'm not entirely sure, but I think that this might need spoiler space.
    I am blessedly unaware of what the "affinity" pics are of...however now I know they're somehow either shippy or un-shippy. (does that make that sentence redundant?) - depending on your stance... from this post, considering my ignorance of the contents of the pics, I can't tell your leaning.

    And this also could quite possibly be more appropriate in the season eight folder as it seems to be on one particular ep.

    Just a thought, but online petitions are virtually useless. Adding names to a written petition from online sources is about as convincing to TPTB as getting them at random from the phone book.

    I can only try!

    I'm thinking of maybe getting people to put in their own messages, so that TPTB know it's genuine.

    Hey. Everybody including myself is happy that Daniel Jackson is back on the show. It was fan campaigning that got him back on the show. If you support this petition, then post. I f you don't, then do what you'd do with TPTB, and keep quiet!

    I'm also not threatening TPTB. I'm letting them know the stance of a large group of people. on the whole ship issue. I will be watching season eight, regardless of whether or not the Jack/Sam plot line is there or not. I'm not going to be issuing an ultimatum!

    What on earth is so bad about letting someone who is creating a consumer product know how you feel about their product? It is called feedback, not threats. If a show is doing something that I don't like, and I write to them telling them that I don't like it and explaining why I don't like it, then I'm following in a tradition that is hundreds of years old.

    You harshly condemn people for making a situation worse by expressing their feelings to the show's creators, but I really don't understand why you think it is such a bad thing. People have always written letters. People wrote to complain or praise silent movies and early radio shows. I wrote letters to my favourite shows when I was a kid, when I was a teenager, when I was an adult.

    No doubt someone said to Shakespeare 'I loved Romeo and Juliet, but that Troilus and Cressida has far to much fighting for my tastes'.

    The point is, since when did that harmless pasttime become 'stuff that only makes things worse'? I know that what makes me happy doesn't make everyone happy, but I can only speak for myself. And I should do so - as should anyone as long as they are polite in their attitude.

    That argument really doesn't make any sense. If you follow it, then really you shouldn't vote either, because the way you want the country run would only make you happy, it wouldn't make everyone happy, and if you vote and get your way then you're unfairly imposing your will on everyone else and that's inconsiderate...

    I very much doubt it that it was the fans which got MS back into SG1.

    "I think that, to some degree, all of us are fractured souls. Cut in half. And we wander through life looking for the rest of ourselves. And sometimes we're fortunate enough to meet someone who possesses, in themselves, the part of ourselves that we've been missing. We may not realize it on a conscious level, but definitely on a subconscious level. We see in someone else... something of ourselves. Thats why sometimes you meet someone and you just immediately feel comfortable with them. You feel like you've known them all your life. The reason is that they're a part of you, and you're a part of them. You're soul mates. you... fit. And once you've fit together, nothing can pull you apart unless you let go."

    describes Sam and Jack pretty well to me!

    Why should we that don't want Pete gone stay away from this topic? Or is the world back to the ''if you dont agree, stfu"-state again?

    A common misconception. The truth is, Daniel Jackson is back on the show because TPTB wanted him back, and MS wanted to come back. It was a mutual agreement which had little or nothing to do with fan input. And if you think this is unlikely, then keep in mind that season 6 - the first season after Daniel left - had extremely high viewer ratings.
