Well, yeah.

I was really going to keep quiet about it, but I have written a letter. I just haven't mailed it yet.

But now that I've seen your excerpt, I'm going to start over. You are so much more articulate than I.

For those of you calling to cancel, do bear in mind that a lot of people signed up on a special promo half-off annual rate last year, so if you cancel and then sign back up again later, you're not going to have the same deal again.

I am quite surprise at that statement (renewable deal) because I have never seen it before and was never been told by anyone it was a fact.

If I ever learn it is true, it might make me angry enough to quit Gametap
forever.

I really do not like to be taken "on a ride".

I honestly never expected the October '06 half-off deal to be renewable. It seems far too good to last.

Still, next month is another birthday for GameTap; there may be a new deal.

In days now long gone by, when nights were long, and the snow deep in the passes, and the odu grew red in snowbound halls, tales were told, and the telling lasted many days and nights, and tho some might know or guess an ending or a turnng in the tale, the magic was in the mystiery, and what woudl come next, and to not know as well as to know.....

Those slower, quieter days may be an age ago, yet we are here part of a tale being spun, and told not in the odu gleam, or to the tune of a harp or clethora, but to the glow of our screens, and among the murmer of our congress of community. And the tale tellers, Cyan and GameTap, the bards of our time today, they have the same daunting task, to lure us on while keeping jewels to drop in our path so that we wander and seek yet do not get lost in the caverns of our journey, yet above all to not reveal, or even hint so as to steal away the surprises, the sudden leaps, the wall that beomes a door that becomes a bridge to a crystal garden and leads to an entire world openning up that none even guessed.....

If I were to write to Trent or to Cyan, what I would say is that I love being here, and hope that MOUL continues forever and a day......and I will sit happily here in the gleam of my screen, as I would have sat by the embers of the fire in the Hall, listening to Snori Sturlisson spin the tale of Nahl the One Handed, or to the tale of the One Ring.......

I think it is a great idea to share with them, and I trust they will gather in all the comments and suggestions and bring them to the Moot Hall of deciding, wherever the deciders meet, .....and that great good will come from it all. :)

OK, my letter is FINALLY in the mail!

I actually wrote about 5 different letters before waking up at 3 am this morning with my final letter all written out in my brain.

Original to Trent - cc to Rand.

I saw Trent browsing the forums earlier this morning. I wonder if something got his attention already?

Yeah, I've seen him on in the mornings quite often too, West Seattle time.

I'll be sending a letter soon. I'll be expressing my appreciation for GameTap's support of Uru and my hope that it will continue... and continue to be a success for them.

(I imagine I'll politely let them know that my primary reason for subscribing to GameTap was for an ongoing and continually growing Uru experience. The continuation of my GameTap subscription is very much contingent on Uru Live's continuation.)

On a side note, now is definitely not the time to let our subscriptions lapse... I'll have to renew soon myself... I want to see what kind of alligator Cyan pulls out of its sleeve in episode 9. ;)

Let's hammer those servers later this month and make lots of good noise!

:)

OK, here's a question.

I signed up last November and got the half price deal. I have since switched credit cards, so about a month ago I deleted the credit card listed on my account and entered the new one. So, will GameTap automatically sign me up for another year? Or do I have to manually do it?

They should automatically renew you.

raider7: Thanks! I've added your name to the list.

ces & macnbc: Thanks for the information... I had to change my credit card as well, so this is good to know.

Everyone: It isn't too late to commit to write a letter. Just let me know, and join the prestigious roster!
