Let's Get Sweaty is currently working on a TeamYu website, which will be a central place to hold all the campaign info. Apparently quite a few people have requested a Shenmue "story so far" page. LGS nor I have a particularly good memory for the details of the story, so I'd like to ask if there's anyone here who can write decent enough and would enjoy carrying out such a task? You will of course be fully credited on the site. Thanks.

Thanks for the offer. But I have no idea if artwork if needed or not right now, but if you get in contact with Let's Get Sweaty you might find he could well use your help.

So, anyone else up for the "story so far" task? If so just PM me or something.

Thanks Axm, I hope to see you on the third then!

With the next tweetathon only a week away now, TeamYu extraordinaire LetsGetSweaty has taken the time to remind us all just why it is that this campaign is so significant. Please read this, it says everything I've tried to say in this thread, only much better: http://www.facebook.com/TeamYu/posts/137535459722874

I hope to see you all clogging up twitter on Monday the 3'rd :) and as ever, please help promote the campaign in any way you can, we can't do it alone.

The next tweetathon is on Monday (tomorrow!) guys. As always, TeamYu/ Shenmue 500k- and I'm sure Yu Suzuki- would be honored if you guys could take part. Here's the new campaign vid, watch it closely as there's a (not so) hidden message in it. :D

Sorry Peter, I think you've spelt the hashtag the wrong way, as we're using the American spelling of licence, so it's #GiveYuTheShenmueLicense

I did my part and send my tweet to SEGA
"Shenmue II reveals the true scope that the series encompasses and how this story is still just beginning. If it continues to be composed of ambitious, engrossing and entertaining titles like Shenmue II, Yu Suzuki's legacy may be best remembered for the Shenmue series."

Telling a cashier what do to in corporate structure does nothing. Tweeting so SEGA marketing department full of interns who never heard of shenmue isn't going to do anything. You need t focus on sneding emails and tweets to a specific person

Hi Bluecast.

While many people prefer to include '@sega' in their tweets, it's really not important whether the community teams sees them because you're right, they don't care.

The purpose of trying to get the hashtag trending each month is to go above their heads, to circumvent the barrier created by their ignorance and indifference.

If the wider world is witness to how disgruntled the consumer is with Sega, those higher in the company will be forced to take notice. It's like standing in the street with a megaphone when the doorman won't let you in.

This is a public protest designed to threaten Sega's public image until they stop ignoring a desperate fanbase. Emails have been swept under the rug for too long - letters, capsule toys, disregarded - but they can't put their fingers in their ears when shareholders and other customers are all privy to the dissatisfaction they are causing.

The Tweetathon holds Sega to account in front of the lucrative mainstream, and also gets the casual fans involved with minimum effort on their part. Worrying about which Japanese '@' name to mention in their tweets other than the globally recognized and assumed '@sega' would remove the accessibility factor that has encouraged so many to participate. As long as the hashtag is out there, that's enough for now. If we get it trending each month, or even if we don't (it's already getting media coverage), the right people will know soon enough.

Poor Yu. Just seeing him in that picture makes me wonder if he will ever be able to continue the series. I thought about this a few days ago. The fact that it must suck for him to not be allowed to work more on a sequel. It would be great if Sega could communicate a bit more. And also realize that creating an epic series of maybe five games probably doesn't return the investment after just one game.
