Very few, if any, of the contributors are still active here.

This forum is a ghost of its former self, I fear. With the advent of Facebook and other social media, it seems that Pastafarians are forming groups all over the place. Which is good. But I do miss having more people here.

Auntie Dee Dee is dead, so good luck getting her permission to sell her work.

The Loose Canon must be distributed for free. You can produce hard copies for yourself, distribute them for free, but you can't charge for them. Sorry.

List of works that I chose to excluded

The Cover
Abbreviations for easy quotability
The Random Number of Not Commandments, Suggestions
Pastalm
The Book of ProvHerbs
The Song of Semolina
The Book of Disco
Pirates' Effects on Global Warming
The Open Letter of Bobby to the Kansas School Board
Pirate Aaahhhhrrr's Letter to the Privateers
The Sermon on the Mall
The Official Pastafarian Prayer Book
The Eight "I'd Really Rather You Didn'ts"

I didn't chose to exclude these because they suck. I chose to exclude these because either the author was unidentifiable or it was text already included in the Gospel of The Flying Spaghetti Monster.

Let's say I want to print 35 high quality hard back copies of the Loose Canon and give them away as gifts. I still need permission from all of the authors. I'm sorry. I"m just not stupid enough to violate copyright laws ESPECIALLY if I won't be making any money off of it.

I think you're barking up the wrong tree. I can picture many contributors refusing to grant you rights on moral grounds... And that's assuming Bobby is willing to let anyone else have rights to anything related to the FSM.

Some of this stuff is really good. It's a shame for it to go to waste. What if some of the authors were to die? The work dies too. None of us are promised another day.

The work is publicly available for free to download. You're telling me that a small run of printed books that people have to spend money to get will reach more people and last longer than a freely available and sharable file?

HAH!






Oh, and don't PM me again. Anything you have to say to me can be said in front of everyone.

I already told you to go screw yourself, and don't PM me either.

You want a price for my little epastle? Give me USD$15,000,000.00, lump sum. Then you can have full rights to it, but NOT the rest of the Loose Canon. Otherwise, screw off and get the hell out of here.

It seems that RRR be handling it better than you.

It is wrong for what he wants to do. BUT it is also wrong for such an :furious: attitude. :furious:

Then maybe just maybe he might get it

I think the board members have made themselves abundantly clear on the matter of publishing the Loose Canon. Thank you to members keeping it civil while being crystal clear.If anyone feels harassed in this or any other matter, please notify me or WOE and we'll deal with that.

Juicegiver: like many new members, you had some ideas on spreading the word, and you presented them to the group for consideration. Thank you for taking an interest. However, it's clear that the active members from your list are not in favor of your project, so I ask you to respect their response and find other ways to contribute to the board and the community. If you still intend to publish anything for profit from this site, you must contact Bobby and acquire his written permission to do so.

Thank you, guys.
I will honor Monkey in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
