From Titan Network:
     
Today a 31 page pitch package aimed at persuading Disney Interactive to acquire City of Heroes arrived for both the CEO of Disney Productions and the CEO of Disney Interactive via Express Mail.

Ammon, Rae, Quinch and I--Internet Marketing Specialist, UK Journalist, Senior IT Tech and writer--put together a 31 page pitch package aimed specifically at Disney, to attempt to persuade the Mouse that picking up City of Heroes is in their best interest as well as ours.  We had the advice and oversight of two senior members of the former Paragon Studios team--mostly to tell us what we could and could not say.  Should there be an answer, itshould be directed to Brian Clayton, the Paragon Studios manager, since we specified that we four had no power to do anything, and he is the man with all the answers.

Now it's your turn.

We have to impress the 900 lb gorilla--The Mouse himself--that buying the City is going to be good for them. We have to show them that we are loyal, passionate, dedicated, and mature. And we have money to spend. Remember, these are executives who are not impressed if genuine movie stars approach them with a pitch for something less than amazing.

We have to show the Mouse that in the right hands, City of Heroes can become the crown jewel among their electronic games.

We need you to write, avalanche with cards, letters, screenshots. We need a letter writing campaign that is ten, twenty, a hundred times bigger than the one we fired at NCSoft.

Go big, or go home, right? We have to go big.

We are asking you to put "SaveCoH" in the address, because we want the mail clerks to be able to sort out our letters quickly.  We want them to see the ever-increasing pile, but in a way that helps the clerks do their jobs too.

Remember, these are people that get thousands of emails and letters. We have to impress them. We have to show them the City is something special. Write letters, recruit your friends, your relatives, anyone who might be sympathetic. Write as if this is our only chance. And good luck to all of us.

Tony V's thank you while the blue boards still exist.

As easily the most dedicated community member and head of the saveCOH movement I think this is absolutely worth reading. 

"I'll probably remember the most is the SaveCoH effort. There are still people today who probably think that we're tilting at windmills. I've seen a post as late as earlier tonight that said our chances all along were less than winning the lottery. Well, they're wrong, I know that for a fact. I genuinely hope that someday, more stuff will come out that vindicates all of our dedication and hard work towards saving this game, but regardless of what does or doesn't eventually come out, I'm telling you that I'm absolutely certain that we were very close to succeeding, and it would have been epic. If you've been writing letters, participating in our campaigns, posting Twitter and Facebook messages, and doing the footwork of keeping people's spirits up, doing research, contacting the media, creating artwork, music, and videos, and everything else that people have been doing, I'm telling you it has not been in vain. Nothing as big as the SaveCoH movement has ever taken place before, and I promise you, NCsoft and even the industry as a whole have taken notice. And we are NOT done yet!"

They can take the sky from me

My own goodbye to City of Heroes. It will have to be more than one part since I just can't write about it anymore today.
