SaveOurSeeker  
The whole fandom is fighting in order to SaveOurSeeker and there are so many things we can do for helping our show!
I decided to create this entry because, thanks to zwineninja  I found a video and in its "Description"-section you can read a list of things you can do for helping!
I'm going to copy & paste the info but since, as I said, this video and info aren't made by me, HERE you can find the original source.


Let's begin!






There are errors all in this vid but I made it in like 10 mins (since I got NO time & motivation at all lately which also = long video hiatus sorry guys). Anyway RANT below with details on how to SAVE OUR SEEKER.

Why are all the good TV shows canceled? I'm SICK OF IT! ESPECIALLY when it comes to LEGEND OF THE SEEKER. I'm just not ready to let it go - and there are so many factors about it that piss me off. 1.) It was NEVER promoted. I mean the only reason I found it is because I use to be into Xena. I've read comments recently about how they just found out about it & it's sad. 2.) It's SYNDICATED! The show freaking comes on some hours at 4 pm & others at 12 AM depending on where you live and it still managed to get around 2 mil viewers. 3.) THE CAST & SHOW QUALITY IS AWESOME!!!!! 4.) THE GENRE we don't have many shows out there that explore the fantasy Genre and honestly I LOVE them. I seriously could go on for days why it pisses me off. I just feel that they never gave it a chance & that's what grates (if they had I wouldn't of been so upset about it-sure it'd still suck but not to the level of suck that I feel now). So I'm def not going to lie down and take this. I'm going to FIGHT to save our seeker!

They could do so many things instead of just saying. "You know what it's canceled". Why not make it into a mini series/mid season show? Hell I'd love 22 eps but if they gave me 12-13 & a S3 announcement I'd be happy. Also, the fact if they sold this show to a cable company on 1 TIME SLOT at a set time I feel it'd KILL in ratings considering it's scattered everywhere now and still manages to hold it's on.

So....PLEASE just take 5-10 mins out of your time to help. It all lays on us now. We now have to step up and prove to them we can do this. Prove to them we LOVE our seeker & are willing to do all we can to keep it on air.

Here is some of the things you guys can do:

SIGN THE PETITION-
http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions...

(It's a QUICK process to simply sign the petition and the more signatures we get the better).

EMAIL THE PEOPLE AT DISNEY-
http://www.sdsmail.org/

(Just a QUICK email. Won't take even 2-3 minutes. Make sure they are all checked and send in your email to save our seeker).

CONSIDER DONATING AT LEAST 5-10 DOLLARS for TRADE ADVERTISEMENT-
http://community.livejournal.com/lege...

(Seriously it's just 5-10 dollars. I can spare 5 dollars & I know a lot of other people can too. This is what the Jericho people did to get their show back from the dead and it helped them - so hopefully it'll help us too!!!)

GET ON THE RENEWAL WAGON-
http://forums.legendoftheseeker.org/s...

(They are specing ideas & such over here. PLEASE go
here to catch up on the latest of what you can do to help!)

GET ON TWITTER. You can simple type in the #legendoftheseeker hashtag to see what's going on. So far we are tweeting these cable networks to consider or reconsider legend of the seeker for a 3rd season.
@syfy @starz_channel @ABC_Publicity @CW_network @cw50detroit @CBSitweets @SPACEchannel @WOSACanada @WGNTV & more. If you have additions to make add them in the comments.
Again it's easy to join twitter http://www.twitter.com If you guys are still confused about it just add me on twitter and I'll help: http://www.twitter.com/point0fn0return

FINALLY publicity. We need the media outlets out there to start writing up articles about what we are doing I feel. It's publicity & opens a lot of peoples eyes. If there are any writers on my subscriber list LOL ;) feel free to write about our campaign. WE'D LOVE IT! Here are some articles that have been put out there so far (that I know of):
1) http://confessed4life.yolasite.com/up...
2) http://sffandom.wordpress.com/2010/04...
3) http://theseekerflag.wordpress.com/

(Again if there are more articles websites feel free to add them in the comments).

FINALLY FOR THOSE THAT WANT TO SHARE THIS VIDEO AROUND YOUTUBE. HERE:

I honestly don't even care if you credit me. I made this cause I'm pissed and hoping we can get a S3 of LOTS :(. So yeah go ahead and DL upload it to your YT account & copy & paste ALL this information if you'd like.

ALSO I realize a lot of my subscribers aren't LOTS peeps, but peeps from other fandoms I vid. Guys lol have mercy on us & just take a second to sign the petition. We've all been there when are fav. show has been canceled :( I'm not ready to see Seeker go....That is all.

No a la Cancelacion de LOTS
Hay muchas tv que estarían interesadas ne adquirir los derechos de "LOTS". No hay que rendirse, yo no deseo que sea cancelado.

I hate Twitter so much, but I just signed up to tweeeeet stuff (SEE WHAT I DO FOR YOU, LOTS?). If I can figure out how to use it, that is xD
tracy: octopus | quoi?madmguillotine on April 28th, 2010 08:12 pm (UTC)
Okay, seriously, how do I do this? xD

Like, would I write in the "what's happening" box:

@syfy Please consider #LoTS #LegenoftheSeeker for a third season!

Is that how that works?

/is an idiot

This is a REALLY good post and is hopefully fighting what is pointed out in this post: http://community.livejournal.com/legendofseeker/551558.html We need to unite! I'm sending people your way, hope it is cool :P.

I'm sorry but that link doesn't work to me :(
you can copy/paste everything that is on tho entry....that's not credits that I want but just to SAVE THE SEEKER!!!!!!!!!! *determined*
Katrinakatrina_splat on April 30th, 2010 01:25 pm (UTC)
The post seems to be gone :\ don't know what happened to it. It was about saying we're a bit too spread out, and lacking a united front could damage us (ie there are at least three blogs I know of, a bunch of LJ comms, a bunch of different forums...etc etc.) It was calling for a couple of people to step up and be 'generals' to organise the front. One of the main problems pointed out being that there are two main websites, saveourseeker.com and saveourseeker.info.
nasmadie: Blood Ragenasmadie on April 30th, 2010 02:03 pm (UTC)
saveourseeker.info?
I didn't know that site :s

Thank you for (re)posting and editing this!

BTW, the url text (under the edited part of the post) is missing the links.
nasmadie: Blood Ragenasmadie on April 30th, 2010 12:31 pm (UTC)
thank U for telling me that! I fixed the links! ;)
pepekunpepekun on April 30th, 2010 02:27 pm (UTC)

twifan21 on April 30th, 2010 02:35 pm (UTC)
Donated!! It's only $10 since I am a poor college kid but I want to do all I can to help save my favorite show!! :)
nasmadie: Blood Ragenasmadie on April 30th, 2010 02:51 pm (UTC)
We're on the same boat :'(
jane_doh1jane_doh1 on May 2nd, 2010 01:35 am (UTC)
Thanks for the info. I donated, and also wrote to Disney. It is so hard to think of what to say to convince them!!! Anyway, this was what I wrote:

I am sure you have received many e-mails requesting this show to be renewed. I am from Australia and only stumbled across the show by accident - there seems to be a severe lack of advertising which is not doing it any favours. I was trying to wait for the DVD to be released for my region but when it became apparent that it wasn't going to happen, I purchased the Region 1 DVD from Amazon. The fantasy genre has been off our screens for way too long, and past shows such as Xena and Hercules were popular, along with current shows such as Merlin. I think you will be doing yourselves a disservice if the show is cancelled too early...I know lots of people who are only just discovering the show now, and I think it will gain momentum. I also think that focusing solely on ratings for the show in the US is ignoring potential profits from all the other countries where the show is aired. It is also the perfect show for merchandise, yet there seems to be very little available.
I hope this e-mail helps, and you consider doing all you can to keep this show airing for many more seasons.
nasmadie: Blood Ragenasmadie on May 4th, 2010 11:36 am (UTC)
I wrote a letter a month ago(when the news about cancellantion weren't out)..this is what I wrote:
(I used a letter I found on http://herblueeyes.com/ as model :))

To the Programming Director:
I’ve always loved fantasy tv series, I was used to watch “Xena: The Warrior Princess” and “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” every day, but Legend of the Seeker is the best I’ve even watched. I thought season 1 was just awesome but season 2 is getting better and better! I do hope in a 3rd season; that would be deeply appreciated! and maybe that would let more people discover it and become as enchanted by the magic, romance and drama of Seeker as I am.
Thank you for your time.


Sincerely,
