This thread is intended for those Forum members who had not joined the Birthday Card for Stephen Fry Project before the deadline for participation, but who want to wish Stephen a happy birthday by adding their name to the Birthday Card.
Here's the plan; when the card is finished by all those taking part, we'll designate a couple of pages for 'latecomers' to the project to express their wishes for Stephen. After everyone has signed up (see below for deadline) I'll post a collective greeting, which I'll write towards the back of the Card, and then anyone who wants their name to appear should post in this thread and their name will be added to that page, beneath the greeting.
A few quick, simple rules:
1. Anyone wishing to do this must not already be taking part in the project - i.e. they must not be included in the itinerary lists, which are linked to by my signature.
2. People wishing to sign this page will have their Forum name and location added (handwritten) on a page of the Card containing a generic greeting, after all the current participants have created their greetings. There will not be the possibility for people to write their own greetings in the card - we simply won't have the space for that, sorry. However, feel free to express in this thread what you think the greeting should include - all ideas are welcome, and I'll try to include them all when I put the greeting together.
3. The deadline for people to express their interest in being on this list (on this thread, or via PM to me) is no later than Wednesday 24th June 2009. No names will be accepted after this date - we need to keep things on-schedule.
I know this sounds incredibly picky, but if we don't have fair & firm rules the project won't work. Several people have worked incredibly hard at making this happen, and they've agreed to let latecomers add to the book to keep things fair for everyone.
Any questions, PM me.
So, who wants in?
