Re: #FreeBabylon5 Campaign

I don't view it as a competition, I view it as a way to support a show I like, where the creator has called for fans to help spread the word about it.

And it drives me nuts when people pop into threads just to say they don't like what's being discussed or like it but other things are better.

Ah, gotcha. I guess I sometimes get very passionate about Babylon 5.

Same here. When B5 was on the air, I used to tape it for my brother and badger him into watching them. Luckily, after a while, I didn't have to badger.

Weekend Sale! http://www.freebabylon5tees.org/ has lowered the price of the #FreeBabylon5 t-shirts still in stock after the Space City con to only $15 until Monday only! Get yours while there's the best selection of sizes and colors available! Remember, proceeds go to benefit Claudia Christian's C Three Foundation.

Thanks, RJDiogenes!

We got a big shot in the arm last night when Claudia Christian posted about the campaign and shirt sale on her Facebook page. Page likes went through the roof! We also posted one of the cute mini-videos from Space City Con:

Great news! The trick now it to keep the momentum going. I think the best chance of that is to get noticed by some high traffic blogs or twitter accounts not directly related to the existing fanbase. No clue how to pull that off though...

Well, there was a blog mention here
http://almostnerdy.com/scifi/free-babylon-5/

And I did a small podcast while in Galveston. I need to look and see when that might be available.

I'm kind of hoping to garner some attention when the Thunderclap goes out this coming week. Fingers crossed.

Speaking of the Thunderclap; is my memory faulty, or did the number of supporters just double in 48 hours? At this rate you should break 500 supports before the time runs down.
