    Default Stargate Superdrive - Tweet Storm - December 6th

    At the risk of the thread immediately turning into a slagfest towards MGM, I thought I'd still share it anyway. Joe Mallozzi is organizing another tweet storm for the 6th of December.

    At 3am in the morning, I doubt many Europeans will be awake for this one.

    I certainly won't bother. I have class in the morning (yes, on Saturday), and last time the globe lit up twice like a christmas tree and nada... so good luck to those who are crazy enough to get up for this, or stay awake. I hope it's worth it.

    I can represent Europe. 3 am is not that bad. I am just worried this "storm" will be more like soft rain.

    I have class on Saturday morning so 3am is not ideal.
    And I'm fairly certain I'm not the only one for whom such time is rather inconvenient.

    Though... I do think, you're correct on the "soft rain" ... but even that can get you soaked to the bone, I guess.

    The plan was to have a second Tweetstorm for Europeans, like last time, because of that. But I say was, because it seems there isn't a whole lot of interest for that. I'm not entirely interested either, until there is some concrete evidence that something is happening, or something will happen. But there's one thing I'm going to share before the Tweetstorm begins. I tweeted it before, but I suck at it so I probably mistagged things so no one read it. But it's also me being idealistic and hopeful, so it's probably stupid anyway. I'm going to to do it regardless.

    I personally think the "we're working on it" may have send a lot of people in a different direction.

    Ooos. I haven't seen this thread. Honestly it should have been organised on Saturday at 1pm, so Europe could participitate at 6-7pm while the West Coast can join it at 9am.

    And maybe it should be a monthly feature, so maybe the right MGM people will notice the storm if it could be a frequent event.

    I would opt for something more physical, right about now, send in something that is harder to ignore even if it gets lost inside the mail order system of MGM.

    Good idea. I would suggest Goa'uld symbiotes, so the world domination... khmmm... :ehhem: world distribution could start in any minute.

    I was thinking letters but symbiotes can work too.

    Default Stargate Tweetstorm

    Alright, so this thread has probably already been created already and I just can’t find it, but I wanted to post just in case. Per Joseph Mallozzi’s blog there is going to be a “tweetstorm” to support and hopefully gain attention to the Stargate franchise through platforms such as Amazon, Netflix, DisneyPlus, etc. I don’t know too many details on it, but I’d be happy to get some Stargate back so I’m creating a twitter account just for that reason. The “tweetstorm” is set for Friday, December 6th at 9pm. Again, apologies if this thread has already been created.

    It has indeed been posted in the General section of the forum. Elite Anubis Guard made a thread there: Stargate Superdrive

    I made a report about merging the two threads, but perhaps the general one should be merged here, instead of the other way around. I think it does indeed go better in the News-section.

    That's 9pm USA-time, for the record. That's the middle of the night for most of Europe.

    And considering the recent animosity towards the Europeans who dared to make a note about the unfortunate timing, I don't think many are still going to be willing to stay awake until 2-3-4am in the morning, or get up to tweet.

    I certainly am going to mute most stargate related hashtags over the weekend. I'm away at a friend's house anyway so probably going social media dark the next couple of days.

    ***

    With regards to the platforms, ... apart from Netflix (albeit their libraries vary from country to country), most streaming services severely limit the audience able to watch any new show that might or might not happen. It would simply be a StargateCommand 2.0.

    I think, for me, at least this tweetstorm has a quid-pro-quo:

    If you (general) want me to feel passionate about getting stargate back, but you (again general) do not care that I could potentially not have access to it, than I am not going to be used for your (general) convenience, if you (still general) are not willing to do the same for me.

    That's a road which goes both ways obviously, but it's the principal of the thing. You can blame Stargate Command and MGM for that.

    ^Oops

    That’s rough about the 3am time, it’s too bad they couldn’t find a time for everyone. And ahhh I see, well it was nice to be hopeful for a short period of time anyway It would be nice to get some of the actors involved, but that’s definitely a long shot.

    9pm Friday in Washington DC is 10am Saturday here in Western Australia, so might be able to make it.

    This is the Tweetstorm. There can be another one a little later, using a different hashtag, for Europe and/or other regions in the world. But that won't happen if people don't show an interest. It's useless if only a handful of people are prepared to do it.

    Stargate_Now literally said, and I guess they don't know that Europe doesn't trend as one nation but each country has it's own trending top 10, that France was the only one trending in the previous tweetstorm.

    They have yet to distance themselves -- an apology simply won't cut it -- from that dude who went off his rockers and literally insulted everyone to high hell who pointed out the issue with that unfortunate Europe timing. He could have taken the high road but instead yanked everyone's mother into the conversation (in a manner of speaking).

    I have no desire to "support" the Americans in getting a stargate show that we might enjoy as well. They can fight for it themselves. There's no quid-pro-quo here.

    Where were they when we tried to get them to speak on our behalf with all-access anyway?

    Oh yeah, this runs very deep with me.

    That's not rough -- well, it is obviously not ideal. I'll be asleep. I have class on saturday morning and a busy weekend so no time for stargate anyway.

    You have to realise that the primary audience here is not globally, it is North-America. They are the viewers which can make or break a show. If they're not watching it, we're not gonna get to watch it.
    That's a fact I'm not refuting.

    It's the way they are handling the issue, on the other hand, that's what's bothering me a lot right about now.

    Unlike CBS (I think they own Elementary) which continued to renew Elementary because it was a huge success on the international market, while it kept losing viewers in the home market, the USA, MGM only aims its arrows on the home market. The rest is extra, and keeping Stargate Command, they don't think very highly of other markets other than those that did have access to their payed content.

    I mean, CBS literally continued Elementary with 2 season (1,5 perhaps) for the international broadcasting license market.

    ***

    According to Joe Mallozzi, there will be actors involved. Peter (Apophis) has already tweeted about it.
    There will also be give-aways among the tweeters from Mallozzi, and at least one fan offering replica crystals. They look neat.

    (Bribery at its finest -- )

    Yes, it does feel like we're being punished for being on the "wrong" continent.
    It's Stargate Command all over. We're quite literally the afterthought, the footnote not worth mentioning.

    Every country has its own trending list. Which is exactly the point. Then there's also the global trends. If it only trends in the US, well then they can only think about the US. And I'm not talking about trending. Trending means ****, especially in this instance. It's about awareness and making sure there is sufficient representation from around the world. Even though it was only trending in France doesn't mean the rest of Europe was ignored. The image they showed about where the tweets came from clearly showed they came from all over. Local trending also favors hashtags related to local events or situations, not something like a global event that may have a smaller coverage in each country, but a huge following globally.

    Well, if that's how you think then yes it's never going to happen. If everyone thinks that, nothing will ever happen. If the rest of the world shuts up, then that skews the results. All-Access, and SGC as whole, was a trainwreck of epic proportions. But if we all just shut up about it, give up, then nothing will ever change, as it is with everything.

    I know the scepticism runs deep with you, and I understand and feel similar. But I'm asking myself, do I still love Stargate? Hell, yes. So I'm trying every attempt I see. Right now the only reason I don't care to participate is because I want some answers. I love being idealistic and optimistic, and love everyone else for being that, but I need some reassurances, some true reassurances, to convince me to join in again. But I still don't want to just sit back and give up.
