What the hell is she thinking scheduling a meeting on a saturday night? I will be out, trying to have some fun at some clubs. We all want to save farscape, but we all also have social lives too. I guess I've have to read up on what happened tomorrow afternoon.

[20:01] <Barbarella> I'm really pleased there are so many people interested
[20:02] <Barbarella> I'd like to say IGN is nothing but a rag guys
[20:02] <Barbarella> you can email them but don't concentrate your efforts on it
[20:02] <Barbarella> the press is notoriously behind the times and don't always get the complete facts
[20:02] <Barbarella> let's not lose focus here
[20:02] <Barbarella> we're here to stick it to scifi and em tv and get our series BACK on the air
[20:02] <Barbarella> ok?
[20:02] <Barbarella> now
[20:03] <Barbarella> as for the change in tactics
[20:03] <Barbarella> up till this point we haven't been mentioning that if Farscape goes to another network we'll follow it
[20:03] <Barbarella> and that most of us ONLY watch sci-friday FOR farscape
[20:03] <Barbarella> Now I'm not saying boycott scifi...couldn't be further from the points
[20:04] <Barbarella> what I'm saying is be truthful
[20:04] <Barbarella> WE WATCH SCI-FRIDAY BECAUSE OF FARSCAPE
[20:04] <Barbarella> and SG1 most of us have seen on showtime already

Barbarella posted later in the nite to say that possibly the meeting will be Monday in *Australia*, i.e. Sunday in New York. Here's what she said:

<Barbarella> ok guys

<Barbarella> its been bandied about that they meant monday aussie time
<Barbarella> if that's the case we need to get on it RIGHT NOW
<Barbarella> ok?
<Barbarella> get it goin out RIGHT NOW
<Barbarella> DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN
<Barbarella> and continue thru our monday here
<Barbarella> OK?
<Barbarella> GET ON THOSE EMAILS AND FAXES AND TELEGRAMS AND PHONE CALLS

I am so confused. Are we supposed to be sending them stuff right now that we go where Farscape goes? As I kind of have been sending that message anyway.

No one at Sci Fi Chat seems to know whether the meeting is Sunday or Monday US time. Hopefully that will get sorted out soon.

But, in response to your question, all_about_Aeryn, Barbarella was giving this as a strategy change, since a lot of people were only pushing for renewal last week, not saying that they would start watching another network. A lot of people had already adopted the "new" strategy that Barbarella proposed, though.

Anyway, Barbarella recommends sending lots of e-mails, faxes, telegrams whenever you can tonight, Sunday and Monday.

Thanks for the clarification. I will send emails and faxes to that effect right now and just ignore the fact that this has been my message all along. :)

Send emails to people who are IMPRESSED by them: the local TV newspaper's TV Colunist. They might smell a story if they got more than a dozen emails about anything. If TV guide has responded, the local writers will want to find a story angle and promote the Save Farscape campaign to those who read print news. Radio stations get their news leads from the paper....
