Pj2 and I are not joking. Many people in America are not that bright. I am blond hair and green eyes and pale skin. Yet if I want to rent a car in Indiana, the rental place will look at my drivers licence, it says New Mexico USA (we are the only state that has USA on it) but some people won't rent it to me because they think I am from Mexico.

Geez People sometimes.

I have, however, added a link to the Save TSL Website at the bottom of the petition, and that will (once Atec123 gets to it) have a link to the offline petition so I think we've done about all we can do where that is concerned.
How should I Link it to the offline petition?

Just a link to tessy's word document or to the forum topic?

I would link to the forum topic -- who's letter are we using, btw? We have two, so we could each send one as a letter to Activision as a letter campaign and use the other as the offline petition.

Uhm... as far as the address goes, I would use the one for the PR department provided to us by the Activision Assist fan page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=173789739310&topic=15415) -- I mean, we are the public and they are Activision's relations to us.
Or maybe we could just make copies of all the petitions and send a package of them to each address. (No, don't actually do that, it'll be expensive!)

Yeah, some people really do, and a lot of them are from Texas.  It's pretty pathetic, let me tell ya.  I'll tell people I'm from New Mexico and people will be like, "Wow! How'd you learn to speak English so well?" and I chuckle every single time, haha
I could understand if they were from another country like one in Europe, but people from the US, especially Texas? Jeez. That's just sad. :-\

Uhm... as far as the address goes, I would use the one for the PR department provided to us by the Activision Assist fan page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=173789739310&topic=15415)
I'll update the .doc then just in case.

At 11:41am PST, I posted that the petition had just over 500 signatures.  Now... at the time of this post (1 hour 40 minutes later), the petition is now at over 600 signatures.  
Now at 700 :D

Don't have a printer nor a scanner myself, but my dad has both and I visit him about every day. So, next time I pop by (him) I'll print the pdf I just made from the doc with my name in it, sign it, scan it as pdf and send it to waltz.

Those who are playing telltale games version of monkey island, does those games makes mention of copy right anywhere reflecting all ownership from past?

Did telltale games (TM) received permission in producing?
That company should have been first ones to receive stop notice from activision.

Is strange (TG) is making money from their game while (TSL) isn't.

I'll say, put everything back on TSL website!

If activision decides to sue, based what I've mentioned above, no judges in the whole world would grant in their favor!

Any comment?

I'm fairly sure Telltale games cooperated with LucasArts to develop Tales and were under license from the start.

Sooo..... The way this is working is we are printing, signing, scaning, and emailing to waltz?  Or are we printing, signing, and mailing to waltz?

I think we should put an extra stamp in the letter too, because that would cost a lot of money for waltz to send them all to activision.

I just don't want to update the site until I fully understand what is going on.

Any way you want. I have recieved 8 letters already via email. Don't worry about the stamps I have that covered. I will also take letters by snail mail. If you want to hand deliver it, I will take it too. I will take all letters.

Does that answer your question Atec?

Also I have a facebook account if you want to use that too.

Cool, I'll put mine in the mail tomorrow. Put an extra stamp in it for you.

XD just about to post that when Atec posted about the extra stamp. :P

Sooo..... The way this is working is we are printing, signing, scaning, and emailing to waltz?  Or are we printing, signing, and mailing to waltz?
Either. Or just emailing waltz with permission for her to sign your name for you (which I didn't know you could do until now)

...

Damn, I'm too slow at this posting. :P

Already sealed mine up, so you'll get a stamp from me regardless. :P

This is exciting!  I have been at work all day and I come home to this--so awesome!

I'll help in any way I can, just let me know if there's anything I can do.  I'll be sending my letter soon!

I have recieved many letters from devoted fans today. For just nine hours of collecting, as I am going to bed now, I have a total of 14 letters. Keep them coming guys, we can do this :D A positive outlook is all that is needed.

I'm going to look into printing out some of these letters and getting friends and family to sign them.  If I manage to get quite a few and I'm able to scan and email them to you, Waltz (not sure how to do that as a PDF; would you be able to walk me through it?) - do you have some way that I'd be able to give you money towards the postage?  I'd feel bad if you were paying a lot for my (hopeful) letters.

Another suggestion,

Anyone that have contact with original KQ creators (Robert and Ken Williams), why not asking them participate with petitions?

Obviously they might know all places to sent them!

I posted the template letter to Activision and Instructions on how to get it to waltz on a discussion thread on the online petition site.  I hope people do it, we're nearly at 1000 signatures there. 

Also, I have midterms this week and I am WAAAAAY behind, so I'll probably be off the radar until this weekend, when i can really start getting stuff done (esp. posting on the international blogs).  Catch ya' later!

See if you can't print one for your dad to sign too!
My dad is quite allergic to English & has never played any computer games, so leave alone he knows of 'King's Quest and especially 'The Silver Lining'.
Anyhoo, my pdf's are off to waltz.

We are up to 1113 online petitions and I have collected 21 mailed letters. (Just printed yours out Copycat  8) ). This project has touched people all over the world and that is showing in the letters people are mailing. Spread the word, activision can's stand up against the entire world.
