View Full Version : Hopefully this will work...

I have sent out a "bulk" mail to some of the most active members of the YaBB forum who haven't made their way back here yet. Here's how it goes:

Hello everyone,

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Metallus, webmaster of the Grim Fandango Network. Since is this my first bulk (spam :P) mail, I think I should do it right.

I've contacted you all because you were among the most active members of the old Grim Fandango forums, before the site went down for nearly 3 months. I'm happy to say that the network is back online with brand new forums hosted by LucasForums.com.

A few of our active members from the old days have found their way to the new location, and there are scores of new people posting there. However, I haven't seen any of your names around the forums, so this message is to let you know that you are all MISSED :).

I thought I'd contact you just to see if you're still interested in Grim Fandango and the community. If so, please join us at http://forums.grimfandango2.com or http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=225. Both of these URLs will point to the new location of the forums, so stop on by!

Thank you for your time,

GFN Webmaster

How does that sound? Unfortunately I've already gotten 2 mail delivery errors with the addresses that I found from the YaBB boards, but hopefully most of the people who got it will return!

Yes, now we must play the waiting game, a game most familiar to LEC adventure fans.

I shiver with antici............pation

No, no, no.

That's "I'm ripe with anticipation." Then some wag replies "I thought I smelled something."

Just thought I would show my face and say hi seeings as I was one of the ones metallus mailed. My name was hw (I think) back on the old GF site, but I will stick with HelenW from now on, as a lot of people will know me as that from the EMI page. Anyway, nice to see some familiar names from the old site, and I guess I'll see you around the forum!!

Smooth work, hombre

Well, I'd been thinking about it for awhile, during the downtime. I had feared that the newer forum people would be too disillusioned to return. Unfortunately Ck. reports that Dockmaster_Velasco most likely won't be returning. I feel partly responsible.
