Perhaps we could have that built first (eg. a Word Document template, or a PDF?) that people could download if they wanted, to see how their letter would look? Or they could just type letters directly onto the forum, and I'd put them in the template, and print them. And I can print as much colour as we need, so we could make it look really nice? You still up for designing one darvit? ^_^ (As much as Id love SMG in it though, its ok, you dont have to have her :P )

I'm up for designing one, sure. :P I'd put it on PDF [because I don't have Word, I have OpenOffice :P]

When do you want it? I'd post samples on the Graphics board and make you guys vote when I have it. ^_^

I'm thinking that yes, I could possibly write to him. It would be great! So most likely I'm going to. :)

Sounds good - Make sure you join in. ^_^


And yes, this post is pretty pointless. I'm making it to sort out a problem with the "Last Post" thing on the mainpage. All done now. :)

Darvit is busy with exams right now, but when she is done, she is going to make the letterhead I think. ^_^

Once that's ready, I can start collecting letters. I could probably start now, but we aren't really in a hurry I suppose.

At any rate, you can write your letter now if you want, and just send it to me in a week or so. :)

But should the letters be public? I mean, sound other FGers get to see them? also( no offense to anyone) but shouldn't we have some way to weed out the people who are not serious and and just basicly gonna smap him? I mean if we're going to do this we should make sure the letters have a good impact on him and make an example of ourselves.

Agreed - That will all be taken care of. ^_^

You will have the option of either posting your letter in a public place where others can see it, or sending it straight to me.

I will read every single letter, and anything offensive or immature will be removed from the pile before I send them. :) (I will notify the letter author of course, incase they want to change it. ^_^ )


An update for everyone, Darvit has created a first draft of the letter-header we will use. We are still working on refining it though.

We don't have his address I'm afraid. What we have is the Puffin Marketing deptartment, who [i]may[/b] forward their mail onto the authors. The idea is that if we all group together, and send something really big, then they are more likely to send it to Colfer, and so, the letters are more likely to be read. ^_^


I like your idea though, I hadn't thought of sending fanart before. :o
