Calling Activision
« on: April 04, 2010, 08:27:54 PM »
Okay here is the number and how to navigate through the electronic system. The phone number is 1-310-255-2000. You will then press 'zero' which will send you to the operator, she can be a bit gruff but you want the Public Relations section.

Remember, if you call to be polite and to let them know courteously that you are displeased with their decision and would like to have them change their minds and allow TSL to be released. I trust all of you so have fun calling and don't be offended if you get an answering machine.

Calling Activision
« Reply #1 on: April 05, 2010, 01:44:53 PM »
So I just called and after going through a little song and dance to get to talk to someone, I spoke to someone in what I believe was public relations (that or complaints, I'm not sure.)  He didn't know what I meant when I talked about The Silver Lining, but when I mentioned it was about King's Quest and how Activision stopped the game from being released he said, "Oh yeah I've heard about that."  He told me he'd write about that in my complaint and "send it on up."

So hopefully that will be helpful :)

That's excellent!! I think I am going to try that and see what they say. Also, I have sent todays petition package to activision, I hope that those are working their way up as well.

Might want to make a new thread over in general about calling Activision.  That way I can make a post to it over on the Facebook Group and Atec can make a link to it on the Save TSL website.  :)

This thread belongs more in General than Public Discussion.

So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

We should encourage people who called to reply to this thread and tell everyone how it went, or at least just to report that they did it. Then we'd have a way to keep track of the calls, and maybe get some tips from the callers.

We should also add the "Calling Activision" announcement to the web page.

I did the same song and dance with the operator again today and after answering several questions about TSL and that I was trying to express my disappointment, she transferred my call to a Mr. Ashley Dyer. He is the Sr. Manager of Cooperate Communications. I will see what he says when I call him back and if he knows what is going on. If he is the link to the higher ups I will dig for a number and email for everyone.

His direct line, to avoid the operator is 1-310-255-2548 and his email is adyer@activision.com

To talk to Kathy Bricaud Sr. Publicist call 1-310-255-2764.

Well I called both of those numbers and got both of their answering machines.  I left just about the same message on both of them, obviously expressing my feelings over TSL.

Hopefully they'll start noticing all of us calling in and that will get some things moving!

I don't want be an un-believer, but does public relations deal with employees?

It strange we should call there instead phoning board members or even executives members of Activision.

However, hopefully this will archieve something.
