More efforts for a VMars 3rd season. [30 May 2006|10:12pm]

Help Guarantee Veronica Mars Gets A FULL 3rd Season


Greetings, Over at cloud_watchers there's a new campaign brewing. The idea is THINK BIG, this time with DVDs rather than airplanes.


Latest Idea: Get Veronica Mars Season 1 DVDs into libraries in all 50 states and the top 100 Nielsen markets. This new idea can't happen without the entire fandom's help though. Please join in, and make this slightly wacky campaign happen!


Why: The fact that our show got renewed at all was pretty amazing -- VM was one of the lowest rated shows to ever get renewed by a major network. As a result, Veronica's ratings will probably be closely watched by TPTB as it starts its 3rd season. If the ratings aren't substantially improved, they might cut back the number of episodes. Or worse, cancel the show altogether! Let's try to keep either of those things from happening.


How: By getting as many VM S1 DVD sets into as many libraries as possible. Thanks to earlier group efforts we've already donated more than 150 DVD sets to libraries in 25 of the 50 states (plus DC!) and 28 of the top 100 Nielsen markets. Help make it all 50 states, all 100 Nielsen markets, and hopefully at least double the number of total sets. More new viewers mean better ratings, which mean more new episodes guaranteed, which means good news for all fans. Plus, we'll be supporting local libraries, (good for everyone), and individually donated DVD sets are tax deductable, (good for you)! Also, if we can get a large number of sets donated -- a BIG, splashy number -- we could do an official press release. Media outlets that wrote about the airplane stunt might also write about our DVD campaign. And we all know, press for VM is always a good thing, especially as the show debuts on The CW.


If You Think This Is An Idea You Can Support, Spring Into Action:


- Join Cloud Watchers and check the DVD Phase III: Think Big! thread. It has details about which states and Nielsen markets still need DVD sets.

- Call a library that's still in need of a donation and find out if they'll accept a donated set into circulation. - If yes, go out and buy a set, give it to the library you contacted, then come back to Cloud Watchers and let everyone know where you donated. The total sets donated # will be updated!

OR - If that sounds like too much work, donate to the group fund and other VM fans will happily do the calling and leg work for you.



OR - buy some VM themed swag from the Cloud Watcher's Café Press store. (100% of donations and profits from the store will go back into the DVD campaign and related efforts.) (If you can't afford to purchase DVDs or donate cash, please consider donating some time. We still need help calling libraries to see if they'll accept sets into circulation.)


AND Finally - please pimp this campaign in your journal, community, website... basically everywhere fellow VM fans hangout. The more VM fans working on it the better! There's even a fan made banner in the comm to help you do that.


Now, some clarifications: The Wall Street Journal first reported some incorrect information about our airplane campaign -- we did not spend $4000 on the plane. While Cloud Watchers did manage to raise over $5000, only $1,800 was spent on the plane. The rest of the funds were used for several different projects -- all aimed at helping VM get renewed-- such as an earlier DVD drive and care packages for TPTB/VM-friendly press. For a complete breakdown on the facts and figures of the campaign, please visit the budget thread at Cloud Watchers. If all of VM's fandom bands together, who knows what we might be able to accomplish? Help guarantee all VM fans get a FULL 3rd season.

For those of you who want another community... [05 May 2006|01:27pm]

I'd suggest checking out cloud_watchers. They are busy bees.

Hi all. [04 May 2006|02:15pm]

thecuckoo
Not to get into a big thing, but I was out of town for several weeks dealing with some family issues. I didn't even get to WATCH some of the episodes, much less record the ads.

And I have delayed work obligations now that I'm back. And that means that I really can't put effort towards this anymore. Or even my just good intentions, as was the case for so many weeks.

If anyone would like to take over, I'd be happy to make you a mod. And explain how, in an ideal week, I got the information up and running.

Here's hoping that S3 works out for all of us.

Update. [02 Mar 2006|05:16pm]

thecuckoo
I haven't forgotten about the community again; the UPN-soon-to-be-Fox/DCA affiliate keeps preempting VM in favor of basketball. So I can't get the commercial list. Since they're reruns anyway, I'm not that concerned.

I promise I will return to this when the affiliate does.

The hiatus. [14 Feb 2006|01:57pm]

thecuckoo
I realize I've been AWOL. I apologize.

I have been writing down the shows for the past few weeks, and I'm sure that those of you out there who are concerned about this new schedule would like to have them.

I'm going to do a text dump of what I have, so at least we have the updated commercial lists. I will edit those lists to give the full contact info as time warrants. If any of you would like to get cracking on it, feel free to respond to the threads with the full contact info in comments. (Companies such as Glade, Unilever, etc. are already in prior episode entries).

My next idea involves using Numsum or something like it, so that we can see who the biggest, most reliable sponsors are, and how many times they've run a spot. If people would be willing to help out with that, I could sign up and share the password so that everyone could help in entering the data.

And for those of you who are new, welcome. Thanks for your vote of confidence. I've been slacking on this, but I hope you find what we're doing here worthwhile.

Veronica Mars, Ahoy Mateys, November 23, 2005 [13 Dec 2005|04:06pm]

I dutifully recorded this, but between leaving and coming back for Thanksgiving, my notes have disappeared. I'm going to use this as a placeholder in case they turn up or in case any of you have notes to share in the comments.

I did NOT lose the notes for MMtF or OAV, so those should be up soon.

Would anyone be willing to pick up the reruns for the next few weeks? In case it hasn't been completely obvious, work has been sucking up quite a lot of my time. As we are now aware, the reruns won't be automatically TiVoed/DVRed, so keep that in mind.

I know I've gotten behind. I'll get NPBIAC up soon. Thanks for your patience.

We had a TiVo snafu with the rerun of NitW, but that shouldn't be too critical.

A couple of requests. [02 Nov 2005|03:14pm]

thecuckoo
1) Perhaps the most important. I have to be up at 4:30 AM tomorrow for a business trip. I normally get up at 7 AM. So in order for me to function, I will be going to bed very early tonight. Would anyone out there be willing to write down the commercials and email me a list? I can do the research into websites and contact information myself, as usual, but I could really just use the names of the products. You can email me through my LJ address [just click the little "head" by my username to get to my info page. It's there.]

2) As I'm sure you all are aware, we're entering sweeps. This is a GREAT time to send in those letters. So if you haven't sent a letter yet, this would be the week. If you have a VM friend who likes the show and you haven't asked them to join the campaign, this would be the week. You get the idea.

Y'all are the best.
