Mine is sent too. Just so Activision can't miss my 'personal story' I interjected it in the template as a second paragraph. I also made some changes to the template itself, so it should appear at first glance as a totally different email. ;D
Ooooooh, nice!  Stealthy! :yes:

Feel free to change the template as much as you want. It is just there for you to gather ideas. I liked the interjection of the story at the second paragraph.

In my next email I'm gonna record something on youtube and paste it in my email! And it'll be the first thing I say so they'll have to watch. ^^ Posting that in your email and sending it to Activisoon could really catch their attention. =o

As long as you don't make the title or picture that shows up as a preview related to TSL, they probably will click it and watch, lol. (Whoever's in charge of checking emails over there, anyways =P)

I've already joined the facebook group, signed the online petition, made my offline petition, and emailed them! I wanna be a part of the podcast, too.

My mom and I are gonna boycott them, hehe. >D

Well, the youtube thing kinda was a suggestion. =o If we send our emails with youtube videos there might be a chance they'll watch and might make more of an impact becuase of the effort we took to record these things, even if it didn't take much, you know? I just really love KG ^^ I grew up on this stuff and I'm disappointed to see so much hard work go to waste because of what Activision said. =<

Here's my letter. I didn't try to be polite at all....  ::)



To whom it may concern:

I am a dissatisfied customer who wants to let those in charge know that any type of media associated under the Activision label will not be purchased with my hard-earned dollars.

Why, you may ask? Simple. Because you've become a prime example of what I absolutely loathe about today's economic greed and what it does to everyone it crosses.

I have followed the fan game "The Silver Lining" though it's 8 years of hard work and couldn't believe that a group of independent thinkers were strong enough to keep something fueled for as long as it was. The first time TSL was issued a C&D letter, I was crushed. Why, after all of these years of hard work, would a corporate money machine be threatened by a group of fans trying to revive what no one else would? This is a game that has been dead for 11 years. The only thing we've seen of Kings Quest in that time frame is a horribly thrown together mess of a re-release for the XP... And it didn't even work on my computer, I'll add.

The fans were strong. We were all strong. We rallied together, and showed Vivendi what we thought of this atrocious and slimy move. We appealed to them the only way we knew how: emails, letters, and any other way we could get our voices heard. In the end, Vivendi did the smart thing and gave the people who were responsible for their economic success what they wanted. They gave these beautiful individuals the opportunity to make something great, and I was proud of the company for seeing that TSL was not a threat to their business... But what they did for or to the fans was. 

And now you're trying to tear it down again.

I'm deeply sad, hurt and angry for what you've done. I myself have drawn fan art, wrote fan fiction and even designed Halloween costumes that were inspired by this game. Do you want to send me a C&D letter for this as well? And what is TSL if not a work of fan art and fan fiction that should FLATTER you. It was made by fans, for fans.

Even if you had offered to buy the game, it would have been better than shutting it down. I hate this company for it's decision and I'm not afraid to let all of you know it. And until you re-think this stupid move, you will get no commission from me... And trust me... I know a lot of gamers who feel the same way. This was a very stupid and unnecessary mistake.
