Great idea- Let's totally SWAMP the Lucasfilm Jedi Council!

Here's what I'd like for everyone who reads this to do:
Go to the Official Site (www.starwars.com)
and ask the Lucasfilm Jedi Council on the community section about the O-OT petition.
If EVERYONE here will send in just ONE question to them, maybe out voice will be heard.
If we start NOW, maybe we can have some sort of influence.
Send them a question! Send them two or more maybe!

I've started us off with two.
Let's rock!

I actually like the idea. Not that it would help influence Lucas since he probably never sees the stuff. But at least a bunch of whiny staffers might get his attention.

For those of you who have a "Hyperspace" account, theres a better idea-

There is a "drop box" in the chat forum to send in questions. Let's count how many Hyperspace members there are here-

We'll all ask about the OT DVD and it should result in feedback to the powers in charge of this.

Rebel Scumb is the only Hyperspace member that I know of personally.

Me too. Not that I'm a Hyperspace member, but Rebel is the only one I know.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Aren't at least some of us registered at the OS? We can influence (brain control) hyperspace members there.

My screen name there is Hal 9000`.

The OS? Explain.

i know this may sound kinda stupid but i think we should start a new petition that will get Lucas' attention...

specialeditiontrilogyboycott.com

ahhhh just rolls off your tongue...
if he noticed lets say 50 000 people who werent gonna buy his product i think that would get his attention no?

if not we could always just hire motti to go down to Skywalker Ranch and kick him in the junk!
ouch!

I just provided Jay the e-mail address for Fox Home Video. He's thinking about putting together an eNewsletter to send to all of us with instructions to flood their inbox. That could be fun.

Hello.


I am 'Oobi-Doo Benubie' user. I lost the password for This account, and then found it again.

Just wanted to make sure you knew that I AM OOBI-DOO BENUBIE.

Now, then. Thanks Bossk, for doing that. That is a great idea, what you said.

I am SOO glad to be the inspiration to a potential striking blow to the SE only DVDs.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Its my impression that doing this would hurt us more then help us. They may just get annoiyed and pull the plug on www.originaltrilogy.com since technically they own the rights to anything SW.

Its a noble idea, but my instincts say it would not work in our favour.

Now that sounds good!

Writing Jim Ward head of LFL marketing would probably not hurt either.

Huh? This is a fan site. "Original Trilogy" is a fan term, not a copyright. They can't do squat.

well they can make you take down any SW pictures or references as far as I know. But hey I could be wrong. (I have a tendency to do so)

Either way I still think the effect would do more harm then good. All we'll end up doing is making enemies of other fans.

thje fox video thing sounds good thought.

I looked into this a bit. As long as it's an homage or parody you're covered. You're just not supposed to make money on the copyrighted images, etc. But even if you are, it's all about artistic license. Then again, Lucas has a lot of our money to fight us with.

Yep, I'll send them some spam. Er-- I mean, email.
