Default Samsung P3 Petition site & Facebook up and running! (Update)

Ok I started a petition on The Petition Site conserning the firmware updates that we want to see for the Samsung P3. I put the goal to 5,000 signatures. So go on down to The Petition Site and sign up!

You can also sign up if you have a Facebook here. If you sign up by Facebook dont forget to forward it to all of your freinds!

To help spread the word post this HTML code on your Mypace, Facebook, sig on forums (if the rules allow you to), your blog, personal website, etc.

HTML Code:
<div id="peSiteTargetDiv303596039"><a href="http://www.thepetitionsite.com/" style="display: block; width: 252px; text-align: center; font-size: 8pt; font-family: Verdana,sans-serif;">Petition powered by ThePetitionSite.com</a></div>
<script src="http://www.thepetitionsite.com/js/widget.js?petitionID=303596039"></script>
Note: We still need someone to start up the Myspace page, the Twitter page, the Youtube video and the blog site.

"We are deanding that Samsung Corp."

Edit please! :P

But other than that, it looks good.

EDIT: And I shall "sign" the petition soon.

I won't sign up any "Petiton". period.
And as far as i'm concerned, trying to force me to do one thing is the best way to have me doing the exact opposite thing.
A petition is probably the best way to get samsung furious at us so they won't deliver any more firmware. they would be more likely to listen if we ask nicely.

Yeah - how about just one thread, it's becoming about as repetitive as the 'I want a DAP with regular batteries'.

You'll never get 50 thousands of user's.
Let me think maybe there are only 5 thousand p3's in users hands?

True, petitions never really do much of anything but stir up problems. Asking Samsung is the better way to go with this.

Oh and I don't like putting my address and such in on a non-encrypted site.

Personally I'm not sure any method will really prove fruitful. If you start a petition, a corporation can get mad at you, but if you have the signature backing, they will have to recognize that not only is their consumer base aware of the issues within the petition, but are also willing to support that the issue and it is indeed worth their signature. Of course, some companies will receive petitions, look at them, shrug their shoulders and burn them. Even at 50,000. It's still only 50,000.

Conversely by asking Samsung for results, that is a far more diplomatic approach, but at the same time, results are usually far and few between. Usually any sort of request will get lost within the bureaucratic ether. Or a company will run you through so much hassle to try and get to the person you want to speak too, it can take years for any results to actually be produced.

It's easier to silence a small group by giving them the run around then it is to accommodate them. If all corporations accommodated all the interest groups involved, business would never get done.

Personally I think overall its a fruitless effort (though if not for lack of trying ) I think Samsung will continue to do what they want regardless of what we ask for/petition for and there's really nothing we can do to change their minds.

And yes, I do realize this response is rather bleak, but from personal experience, it is also remotely realistic

Fixed it. I also changed the nature of the petition to make it sound nicer so I dont end up pissing Samsung off. I also put the goal much lower. I just have to see how this works out.

Did you actually get EnzoTen's permission to say that your petition was sponsered by ABI or did you just add that part? If not I'm not sure how cool that is to call it sponsered by AnythingButIpod.com. If Enzo never even heard of it before then you need to remove that from your petition.

I signed and asked 5 people to sign also but this is totally the wrong site, there are better petition websites out there. It's also not worded that great and is missing some key bits out.

Hmm I really hope samsung notices this, I'm really starting to regret I didnt get a s9.
This mp3 is supposed to be samsung's flagship, instead of working to make it better they clone it and make 3 mp3s that are nearly the same.
Btw if you want more attention post the link on headfi and similar sites.
