    I think it's the custom avatars that are 2000 posts* - I'm pretty sure you can upload a profile pic once you get out of probie status, along with a non-custom avatar. I was able to do a custom sig at that point too, and the sig specs are very generous.


    *I won mine in the ten-million-posts raffle.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ! ! ! After my last post in this thread I went to bed. When I was drifting into sleep I remembered reading your posts in the Sleepy Hollow thread, min min light. I felt like an idiot for posting that about 2000 posts when I realized I had just read what you said in the Sleepy Hollow thread about your Avatar not more than ten minutes before I posted in this thread. I just came back to this thread to use you as an example of why 2000 couldn't be the number because you only had 1,543. LOL LOL LOL Thank you for explaining how you got yours.

    WB is actually considering redoing all the FX and remastering B5 to blu-ray! The live shots were shot on film so they're relatively easy to remaster, but the FX were done on video and that means redoing them from the start, but WB is considering it!

    If you haven't been over to the site yet you need to check it out. The JumpPoint has links to some other B5 Forums and there is other neat stuff too. It is a good start to tying stuff together. They need to get a tab for this site.

    Anyway, #FREEBABYLON5 now has an eBay Seller ID. Here is an item that is going quick. I bought all of these at Space City Con for almost triple what this package deal is listed at.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Free-Babylon...item19ea6d5c7e

    And still no update on WB consideration yet. Hopefully soon.

    Almost forgot. Besides the great #FREEBABYLON5.com website looking great the #FREEBABYLON5 Facebook page is already over 5,000 LIKES.

    I guess I forgot to post this link. I am an idiot. For those of you looking to support #FREEBABYLON5 here is a link to merchandise available through CafePress.

    http://www.cafepress.com/tofreebabylon5/10441570

    I will tell you that I purchased a black t-shirt a little while ago through this site and it did not turn out well at all. They have been contacted and hopefully the issues have been fixed by now. I know those involved with #FREEBABYLON5 were not happy about my report and contacted CafePress as well. I will say that CafePresses customer service was great and I had no problem getting a refund for the defective merchandise. I just hope all of the bugs are worked out. It has been a couple of months.

    You can access Gateworld through the #FREEBABYLON5 JumpPoint.

    http://freebabylon5.com/jumppoint/

    The JumpPoint not only connects you to this thread and the rest of the Gateworld Forum, it also has tabs to other Babylon 5 related forums. Now you can access them all through the #FREEBABYLON5 Website by simply clicking the tab of the forum you want to explore.

    Update: Still waiting for news on how the SDCC 2014 Panel went this morning. According to the official website there were 127 people who confirmed online that they planned to attend. I don't know yet how accurate that number ended up being.

    And it looks like #FREEBABYLON5 may have scored another victory by getting the show back on the air in Italy. This is not officially confirmed to have any relation to #FREEBABYLON5. This is just a Looney assumption.

    Haven't done an update on the campaign for awhile. Free Babylon 5 has had some success, though not in the U.S. . . yet. Here is another big push on the December 21st.

    Here is a quote about what you can do:

    "With thanks to Gabriela Kioupakis for this idea:
    B5 Fans! It's a new day and and new month and the start of a new campaign!

    We've had some marvelous success so far - the show is currently rerunning on the UK’s Watch Channel and a few other European countries— it's time to get loud again and repeat that success here, in the USA!

    Q - Ah, are you talking to me?
    A - Yes, you and B5 fans everywhere.

    Q - What do I have to do?
    A - Head over to MeTV’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/metvnetwork ), like it, and leave your location… For example:
    “Hello, MeTV. Boulder, Colorado likes you. Please add Babylon 5 to your lineup. http://freebabylon5.com/ ! ?#?freebabylon5?

    Q - What if I’m not on Facebook?
    A - No problem. Head over to metvnetwork.com (when I go, it seems to know what area I am) and take a look around. Once you’re comfortable, use the ‘contact’ tab to share your thoughts and information… Like this (use your own words):
    “Hello, MeTV. He-man and the Masters of the Universe was one of my favorite cartoons growing up. Finding it again on KTVD, Denver has been a joy; the power of Greyskull, Get Smart, Night Gallery, The Twilight Zone, and many others, legends I now share with my children via MeTV’s stellar programing. Please consider adding Babylon 5 to your line-up. http://freebabylon5.com/ #freebabylon5”
    Their list of shows can be found here:
    http://metvnetwork.com/shows/

    Q - I've heard that real, stamped letters help most. What about that?
    A - Yes, indeed! send your letter to:
    Me-TV Network
    26 N Halsted
    Chicago, IL 60661
    (Those of you who picked up envelopes from me at Wondercon last week already have a label to use.)
    Lots of samples and parts of letters you can borrow on the website.

    Q - Ok, when should I do these things?
    A - December 21st, 2014. As soon as you get up. Sunday, First day of winter. Shortest day of the year. Remember that, December 21.

    Q - Anything else?
    A - Yes, spread the word, far and wide. Tell *everyone* you know, even if you don’t like them all that much. We need to flood MeTV’s website with valuable information and increase its Facebook ‘likes’ in a big, big way in order to get the kind of attention we’re after. Our strength is in our numbers. Collectively, we represent an untapped demographic, one capable of increasing MeTV’s viewership across all markets, nationally and around the globe. All we need to do is prove it.

    Q - Does that mean I should forward this missive to my friends in Dubai?
    A - Yes, absolutely. MeTV has a number of streaming partnerships and is looking for an excuse to expand its catalog. All are welcome to participate.

    Q - What about Twitter? Tumblr? Pinterest? Google+? Instagram?
    A - Yes, of course! Tweet, my pretties, tweet! and pin and post and December 21st is the day we Free Babylon5!
    Let's get organized and loud (but polite, of course) and show MeTV that we're an audience that they really want! "

    I just copied and pasted the quote. Here is a link to where I saw it posted.

    http://jmsnews.com/forums/showthread...314#post124314

    So it looks like the target is MeTV December 21st. Time to join in and support Free Babylon 5.

    I really hope one of the major US streaming outlets picks this up sometimes soon, (Amazon, Netflix, Hulu...). It's been too long.

    You can actually watch it through Amazon and YouTube, but you either have to buy the full seasons or pay per episode. As far as the movies go, it is cheaper to buy the DVD Box Set on Amazon than it is to purchase each movie streaming on Amazon. That is also the case with a few of the seasons.

    In a bizarre way this is kind of nice. On a recent rewatch I discovered that two of my Season 4 discs had flaked out (particularly during Into the Fire, of all places). How nice it was to find it was only $15 to replace the whole season.

    Vudu has the streaming rights to the series available to buy and I was told that most of the episodes are in the original 4:3. I can't confirm that aspect, but here is the link.

    So JMS posted a link to the below Facebook page that shows WB heard our voices. It starts with "You asked. We delivered." So someone at WB knew there were people out in the Universe trying to get the show available to watch in the U.S.

    Okay so here are some new instructions to not only let WB know we are glad the show has shown up on go90, Babylon 5, but to let them know it we want more. Here are the instructions from Jan over on JMS NEWs' Forums, leader of The #FREEBABYLON5 movement.

    Facebook Babylon 5

    "Everybody who can, would you please go to the WB page linked above and leave a message including the following:
    - Thank them for making B5 available in the US after so long.
    - Ask if they would please make the Movies and Crusade available as well
    - Mention that fans all over the world are clamoring to see Babylon 5 streaming again and ask that they might make it available to large international streaming services."

    So follow that link and do everything she says above. We need to keep this ball rolling. And don't forget to stream B5 as often as possible and hit that you like it, make it a favorite, all that stuff.
