WILL POST MORE AS I GET THEM! *****UPDATE******* Looks like we got Fuss Cupcakes some press coverages. Check out this email from Dale: dale Dale firstname.lastname@example.org 1:50 PM (0 minutes ago) to me "Hi Sam, That's awesome! I got a call from a reporter for Forbes this morning also. I'm amazed at how much attention you guys can create in such a short time! I'll send you the pictures as soon as the order is finished." ********** UPDATE ************ Please see confirmation. Contact and email of Fuss Cupcakes is also there. Anyone who wishes to do so, may verify at their leisure. http://img41.imageshack.us/img41/9896/confirmation2j.png Some of you have expressed a desire for something bigger, although I couldn't imagine something bigger than this yesterday. I am going to make a poll to see where people would like to go from here. Some have suggested making a Marauder Shields cake..... it can be done.... but the galaxy would never be the same. You guys can decide here : http://social.bioware.com/3414959/polls/30651/ It was an honor holding the line with you all. Good job *************** GOOD LORD! YOU PEOPLE ARE CRAZY! We reached our goal of $1,005.00 in under an hour! You guys blew up my email box. As I type this, it's huddled in a corner crying . I couldn't even end the chipin before I got $100 more than what I needed. That money will be donated to Full Paragon OR I can ask the Owner to bake a cake in honor of Marauder Shields :-D. You guys decide. Notes from these extra contributors will also be added to the cupcake boxes. It's been an honor holding the line with you all. Damn.... I should've had the bakery make a tower cake or something...I'm gonna be here all day sorting through my emails :-D. I've also gotten into contact with the owner from Fuss Cupcakes. He will be sending me an email confirming that the order has been FULLY PROCESSED. Will give a link and his email as soon as I get confirmation. Anyone who wants to independently verify may do so. Keep holding that damn line! ************UPDATE* *********: CHIPIN FOR THIS EVENT IS NOW UP AND RUNNING! http://retakeme3cupcakes.chipin.com/retakeme3-cupcake-campaign Make your contributions. Show Bioware some love, while telling em how you feel. Hold the Line! Also, be sure to spread the word! ************** Hate the endings? Wish the devs would make it right?...then come and check out this campaign. www.holdtheline.co/threads/donut-campaign.205/ http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/323/index/10635792 We are currently trying to organize the delivery of a mass of cupcakes to Bioware's studio in Edmonton. All the cupcakes will be divided into equal parts Red, Blue and Green colors... but they will all taste exactly the same. If you'd like to participate, please check out the thread below and let us know. This coming week, we should send Bioware boxes upon boxes of a dozen cupcakes . We are taking ideas as to what sort of notes we should have attached on each box. Some possibilities include: - "No matter what color you choose, they all taste the same"; - "No matter what color you choose, it's all vanilla ;-D" - "We rage because we love" What we need now is enough people who are willing to join in, and who are willing to help me organize this in a transparent way. I'm loving the support, but please guys, go to the HTL website and post your support on that thread as well. I need to have an idea of how many people are willing to contribute to this before I actually place the orders! How to Contribute: Tomorrow, I will phone the companies and place an order for the cupcakes. When this is done, I will post the receipt, order confirmation, and contact info of the company and sales rep as proof that the orders have been done. I will then post a link to my paypal through Chipin, and cap the contributions at the ammount that will be on the receipt. This seems like the most logistically feesible way of doing it. If someone has a better idea, please let me know. ** UPDATE** It seems that some people are having trouble logging into the HTL. That's ok, just post your support here. If you get the confirmation email, then post on the other thread when you can. **UPDATE - MARCH 26, 1:07PM ** Ok, I have spoken to a bakery located really close to Bioware studio's. They are called: http://www.fusscupcakes.com The approximate cost for this is $1053.24. That includes delivery, attaching our notes and letters, and having some photos taken of our creation. Note: *** I'm still in communication with the owner, and he might be able to drop the price more because of the sheer bulk. There will be 402 Cupcakes. The cupcakes will be equally divided into three colors: Red, Blue and Green. Each color cupcake will have the corresponding letter 'A', 'B', 'C' The company DOES NOT have a paypal account. That means that I will have to place the order, and take contributions directly to my own paypal, and pay for it that way. Will have a final figure in the next hour. IN ADDITION: Every single person who contributes, will be able to write a brief note to be attached to the cupcakes. We will also, as a community, write a letter from all of us to Bioware. These cupcakes can be delivered by the end of the week. Personally, I'm shooting for Thursday or Friday, since that's well in advance of PAX.
