Skype Email Campaign -- AMAZING SUCCESS!!!! Results!!!!!
Hello everyone! I know it seems pointless to close one thread and then open another, but the campaign was such a MASSIVE SUCCESS, that I thought the it deserved its own new thread!!!!
I would like to make a note, PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANYMORE EMAILS TO THE SKYPE CEO OR VP. The campaign is over, it is not February 1 in even a single time zone anymore, so please, DO NOT SEND ANYMORE EMAILS!
Alright now I know you've all been waiting for a final count on how many emails were sent, and trust me, the number is worth the wait. But first, I'd just like to quickly make a note of something. When on created the thread for this campaign, on Wednesday January 25, 2012, diegonei was the very first user to respond. Since then diegonei has been posting often and always reassuring people, with ideas that always seemed quite similar to mine. When it came out, for example, that the emails were being deleted, he told everyone the same thing I did (only a little sooner! :P), that this was not a problem but a good thing, it meant we knew somebody was getting them, and that we couldn't expect the Skype CEO and VP to read all of the emails all over again, which was exactly the right point. So, I would like to issue an official thank you to diegonei, you've been a great part of our campaign!! I believe diegonei is also responsible for some shoutouts on other websites as well, so everyone, give diegonei a big thank you!!!!!
Now, I know you've all been waiting for the number of emails recieved by the Gmail account, and let me just assure you, it is AMAZING. I apologize for not updating sooner but today I did not have any opportunity. Well, I guess I should just tell you guys ehh? Well, as of 18:22 (6:22PM) (UTC-04:00) Atlantic Time (Canada), the count stands at..........
2,081 EMAILS RECIEVED!!!!! That completely dwarfs the number of people on Facebook who were even signed up to send the emails!!!! And, it's resonable to assume there could be as much as 100-200 emails which were not forwarded. Not only this, but it seems that most people sent one email, addressed to both Neil Stevens and Tony Bates, rather than two, then forwarded this email to the Gmail account. This means, that it is not 2000 emails to both Tony and Neil, it's TWO THOUSAND EMAILS EACH!!!! Now, I'm sure some people sent two seperate emails but still, that's an incredible success!!!!!!!!!!! I will be emailing from the Gmail account sometime in the next few days, when they will hopefully read it and respond to it, to find out if our campaign has had an impact! For now, celebrate in the comments below!!!!! Thank you so much for your incredible efforts everyone, it's completely, 100%, simply AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!
