Call To Action: Get the word out
« on: September 02, 2012, 02:55:04 AM »
As mentioned in the introductory message of this forum, our first task is to get the word out among the City of Heroes that we are gathering for a coordinated effort to save Paragon City.  In order to do that, we need all of our various subcommunities--server communities, coalitions, fan site owners, Internet radio personalities, developers...everone--to be on the same page.

So our first call to action is to let everyone know that we are here to save Paragon City.  To let everyone know to check here on this forum for news, information, needed expertise, and actions that are being taken in that effort.  Please contact everyone you know and let them know that we are here, and we're not going down without doing everything we possibly can to keep City of Heroes up and running.  Once we're all on the same page, we can start efforts to coordinate projects like publicity, write-in campaigns, crowd funding, or anything else we need to do to convince NCsoft that this game needs to stay.

Thank you for your efforts, and if you have any questions or comments, please post them below.

Tony, I am rallying a letter-writing campaign and posted the info here, also sent you a PM with the text of the appeal.
I am happy to accept any other suggestions or work with you in any way to push forward on this.

I got it, and I definitely plan to coordinate a letter-writing campaign.  We've talked a little bit about what needs to be said for maximum impact.  Not so much to develop a form letter or anything, but just to give some ideas for what to say to people who just know that they want the game to continue.

Question: in a physical letter writing campaign, to whom do we address our dismay?  I am not stupid but if we have 10000 letters to 5 different companies as opposed to 10000 to one...I think you get the point.

Please let me know.  I will get on this right away.

We'll be talking about that within the next few days.  I don't want folks jumping the gun quite yet.

I am in, Tony. I will do all I can.
Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

I'm dropping a letter in the mail in the AM to:
Mr. Taek Jin Kim, CEO
c/o NCSOFT
158-16 NCsoft R&D Center B/D, Samsung-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul, South Korea 135-090
Phone : +82-2-2186-3300 E-mail : webmaster@ncsoft.com

I don't know if it's the best address, or that it will help - but it's all I found, and I'm going to try it :]

I bought lottery tickets in case the chance to buy Paragon Studios and CoH was possible.

Actually won $5 on the first one, the next one draws tuesday. Using the first to buy more.
