About the Mass emailing

Post by David Whiteheart » Thu Mar 05, 2009 2:42 am

My address is on my profile. Why didn't I get a copy? I know it's a strange request most people would say no to a mass mailing.

I got the email. Here is what it said:

Hello, you are receiving this Email because of your membership on the
Knight Rider Online forum.

First, let us apologize for the bulk email It's the first time we've ever
done it in 14 years, so you can understand the importance. As a fan of
Knight Rider, we hope that you will agree.

Tonight in the US at 8PM EST/7PM CST, NBC will air the finale episode for
this season of Knight Rider. After 17 episodes, the show is starting to
find its groove creatively which will lead us into a strong second season.
But we're not there yet. Because of the economy and weaker viewership
across all episodic television, networks are making tough choices about
next season schedule. It is important that we as fans work together to make
our presence known. Only then will NBC be forced to see that we are an
international community strong in support for Knight Rider

If you were planning on tuning in tonight, thats great - but please tell a
friend, and then ask them to tell one as well (specially if they are a
Nielsen viewer!). If you tuned into the beginning and were turned off,
please try it one more time as the show 17 episodes ago is completely
different then tonight's. If you're a member of Facebook, Twitter, MySpace
or any other social network - let your friends know what you'll be
watching. If you're a member of a message board that has trounced on Knight
Rider or doesn't even know it's on - now is your time to speak up and be
heard.

It's been an uphill battle for Knight Rider. With little promotion from
NBC, no one has any idea that the show is still on the air - and skipping a
week last week does not help. We need to remind people of Knight Rider -
now.

Beyond tonight, you can visit our campaign page
(http://knightrideronline.com/knight_rider_2008/campaign) to find task
lists on other ways you can support Knight Rider's second season.

If we zoom out from Knight Rider on TV, we can see that an even larger way
to support the fandom of Knight Rider is to attend the Knight Rider
Festival (http://knightriderfestival.com) in Las Vegas on March 20-21st.
Featuring the largest gathering of KITT replicas ever, this event is
specifically for the fans and replica owners that have kept the series
alive and in our hearts for over 27 years.

This is a free event to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network
(http://childrensmiraclenetwork.com) - an amazing organization that helps
sick children afford the help they so desperately need. Coming together for
this noble cause will personify the belief that one man can make a
difference.

Lets show the world that we can!

Sincerely,
Knight Rider Online

I didn't have any contacts to send it to.... If you didn't get it then chances are it went into your Junk Mail folder or another, probably older e-mail account if you never changed it from when you signed up here.
The new and again improved evil's advertisement is currently too long and too badass to display here. But let's just say that with now 50% more evil, this **** is great! :twisted: :skar:

Now I get why I didn't get it. This is for people in the US and since I'm all the way on the other side of the pond...

Thanks for sharing anyway.

I have to admit when I first saw the email in my inbox I thought it was spam, but as soon as I read it I knew it was a legitimately sent email. So all is good. :good:

Here's hoping for a second season much like the second half of the first season! (NBC, I would be happy with a midseason replacement if not a full season!)

Hey, I just wondered if anyone thought about including an opt out on the mass e-mailing, even if it was meant for a one-time only thing?

I know that where I used to work, we legally had to place an opt out within the body of the e-mail, and had to have people off the e-mail list within 72 hours or receipt of request. Otherwise, the offended party could pursue legal actions, and my company could have been sued... just a thought???

No offense meant, and I wouldn't be one to opt out of it.

You can opt out via a setting in your profile. Since this isn't a newsletter and simply a board notice, the rules are a bit different. I've manually removed people who've asked.
