A link to that poll should be added somewhere to the main page of savecoh.com, and added to our current twitter, facebook pages.  Probably wouldn't hurt.

Good Idea!

I tried both of those sites when I posted the original notice here, but I don't seem to have permisson.

If someone else can, it would prob be a big push for OUR game!

Status update on the MMORPG.com Poll... CoH has gone from 7% to 11.7% since early this morning!

It's at 12% now - we're getting our butt's kicked by SWG by 11% (They are at 33%). We need to reverse that and even increase the spread! :)

What is really sad is that the number of votes for SWG are heavily swayed by all the people who'd want the original SWG and not the SWG that existed from 2006 until closing.
I'd love me the Pre-NGE (or Pre CU) SWG, but I'd never vote for the NGE SWG to come back again. They should have put two different SWG options, because (as you can see - and just heck the comments for some mentioning their addendum to their SWG vote) they're completely different games and the original had so many people that would STILL love to see it come back.

I only briefly had a Genesis and Sega CD back in my mother's previous marriage, but my friend had that game and we had a lot of fun playing it. I can still hear the bad 16 bit "Welcome to your doom!" voice clip.

Heh heh, yeah I recall that too. I still have my Genesis, and many of the games. I've managed to hold on to almost all of my old consoles.

Anyway, glad to hear we're doing well in the polling!

29.8% and ahead of SWG. Booyah!
They told me there was nothing out there, nothing to fear. But that night I caught a glimpse of something. I've looked for it ever since. I went around the world, searched in all the shadows. And there is something out there in the darkness, something terrifying, something that will not stop until it gets revenge... Me.

Do a mass email to the 10000+  people that signed the save coh petition and get them on this too. That would be epic insane. I think some petition sites support a mail your signatures a thank you or something similar

Is this even possible? Because if so, yes, absolutely, we need to do that.

Also, it was 20000+ that signed it. :D

Wow, this puts me in a tough position.  As much as I love City of Heroes, Earth and Beyond was the first MMO I actually put some time into (dabbled with AC once upon a time), and I've always wished I could go back to that again.  Plus, I'd love to get the PreCU SWG back (any other version can rot in obscurity for all I care).

What can I say, I've had the bad luck of experiencing too many good MMOs killed before their time.

Or at least report that the diehard crazies haven't given up yet!   ;D

Hmmm, been a while (at least a year) since i'd signed in at the mmorpg site and while i'm still getting their weekly bulletins i couldn't recall what my username and password for the site are. Waiting on a reply to recover them so that i can log in and vote.  :-[
One of things i miss most is my whimsically named PB, general incompetence. With his battlecry of "I know what I'm doing!" he only achieved 30 levels of making villains look bad before the shutdown.
NPC: "I heard the Council museum heist was foiled by general incompetence!"

I'm disheartened by only 700 votes, total, but it's funny that "Don't care" is in third! :)

Just shows you what the estimated percentage of "Oh, Look! A New Shiney to Play With And Then Throw Away" crowd is on the site.

and it's way below either CoH or SWG... 11.3% as of now.

Do we have any pancaking idea how long this poll will go? The OP seems to be watching it, but there doesn't seem to be a real goal in mind, here.

The real point as far as I was concerned was to let our community voice it's desire to see THE game returned to life.

That's what they were polling, anyhow.
I'd say we have a fairly safe majority (barring any voting tricks).
