Petition to Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB)
Make ESRB declare lootboxes as gambling
OVERWATCH LOOT BOX PICTURE IS SYMBOLIC. THIS PETITION TALKS ABOUT VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY AS A WHOLE! As per Google's definition of a gamble: take risky action in the hope of a desired result. And Dictionary.com's: to stake or risk money, or anything of value, on the outcome of something involving chance. Lootboxes and crates in video games fit the description entirely, as everytime you open them, you gamble and take chances to win rare in-game content. ESRB's official statement on why they don't consider loot boxes to be gambling: “While there’s an element of chance in these mechanics, the player is always guaranteed to receive in-game content (even if the player unfortunately receives something they don’t want)." By their definition, it means, that if you gamble and you lose the bet and then get compensated by credit, candy bar or anything else, it is not considered "real gambling", even though, that you usually need to buy premium in-game currency with real money to purchase loot boxes/creates. That means if you use a slot machine and you lose the bet and then get compensated by credit or a dollar it is not considered "Real gambling". I don't think that this is correct as video games employ all real-world tactics that are used to make people gamble without mentioning exploitation of addictive behaviour and adverse effects it can have on people, especially on minors who are not familiar with those methods. Just because you get a small compensation, in the end, it doesn't mean that this is not real gambling. The solution to this problem would be, that ESRB declares their respective "Adulty only" rating for video games in which you can gamble(even ones which compensate you with digital items or credits).
Petition to ABC Network
Save Tim Allen's Show "Last Man Standing"
Despite consistently high rankings, especially considering the time slot in which it is aired, Tim Allen's show "Last Man Standing" has been cancelled by the network on which it is aired, ABC. Last Man Standing stands out in the sea of network television sitcoms. It is a show that appeals to a broad swath of Americans who find very few shows that extol the virtues with which they can identify; namely conservative values. Last Man Standing was not just selling conservative ideals though, as some of the characters in the show are clearly of the liberal persuasion, yet the characters on the show all manage to get along and take care of one another, despite their politically opposed views. The show is about more than politics though, it is about family. In fact, politics is only a secondary part of the show, but one in which many Americans can readily identify. Last Man Standing is one of the only shows on broadcast television, and the only sitcom, that is not constantly shoving liberal ideals down the throats of the viewers. And sadly, that is likely the real reason the show has been cancelled. The intent of this petition/boycott is to attempt to get ABC to renew the show. With that in mind, I will no longer be watching any ABC shows. I have cancelled the DVR settings for the other ABC shows that I regularly watch. If you want to help try to save Last Man Standing, I encourage you to do the same. Even if you are not willing to boycott the network, but still want to save the show, please sign this petition and share it. If you do plan to boycott ABC, please say so when you sign. Let them hear our voices.

Reopen and preserve the Coliseum Cinemas in Washington Heights
I hold my neighborhood, Washington Heights, very close to my heart. Although things change, and people change, one thing that I know is missing in my community is the charming Coliseum Theater, located in the heart of uptown life in Manhattan. B.S Moss' Coliseum Theater opened on September 24th, 1920, to rave reviews and a FULL HOUSE! It was designed by Eugene De Rosa, who designed a number of Broadway theaters during the Roaring Twenties. In addition to Harold Lloyd, who performed at the theater on opening night, the Marx Brothers, W.C. Fields, Eddie Cantor, and Gertrude Berg all performed there. The 3,500 seat theater was the third largest in the city and was built on the site of the Blue Bell Tavern. The tavern had been in existence since before the Revolutionary War and George Washington spent a night there. According to Reginald Pelham Bolton, remains of the tavern were visible until the construction of the theater. The theater was taken over by RKO (Radio Keith Orpheum) and renamed the RKO Coliseum Theater. By the 1980s, the theater was subdivided into a triplex and the ornate marquee was taken down. The theater closed and re-opened under new management as a quadplex in 1991. This reincarnation of the theater closed in 2002. In 2004, another theater opened in the space only to close in October 2011. (Source available upon request) as a child, I, along with thousands of people within the Washington Heights Community, used to come to this theater in order to enjoy watching movies at our convenience. I never realized that this building, which I used to pass by almost every day, had such rich history attached. So why not make it of use? Our community deserves to have a movie theater, where it was originally built to entertain audiences for decades to come. I want to make the building a Landmark, and I also want a movie theater company to buy out the building, in order to continue the glory it once had.
Petition to HBO, Sesame Street, Sesame Workshop, PBS , The Jim Henson Company, The Muppets Studio
Kevin Clash, please come back to "Sesame Street" as the puppeteer and voice of "Elmo".
Kevin Clash should return to Sesame Street as the puppeteer and voice of Elmo. I miss him, especially his Elmo puppeteering and voice. It has adored my childhood. Back then on November 20th, 2012, he resigned after those false accusations! And then, 2 years later, in April and June of 2014, those false accusations have been then thrown out, cleared and dismissed for Kevin Clash, meaning that his personal life has now been restored and well-respected. And those accusers had to go ahead and go after him, frame him, set him up, and ruin his life! And also, those accusers also had to go ahead and ruin my childhood! I loved Kevin Clash's documentary movie Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey, released back then in 2011, 1 year before he resigned, and it was such an AWESOME feel-good documentary movie! I am still angry and upset about what happened to Kevin Clash back then on November 20th, 2012, and I am still feeling that way EVER since after that time! And I was also against it, too, when this happened to Kevin Clash, and I am also still against it, too, also EVER since after that time, too! And that is why I am going to keep on protesting, and I am NOT planning on ending the protest anytime soon! And as to when it will end, this protest will end when Kevin Clash comes back to Sesame Street as the puppeteer and voice of Elmo! So hopefully, once again, Kevin Clash should return to Sesame Street as the puppeteer and voice of Elmo, because, once again, like I said before, I miss him, especially his Elmo puppeteering and voice, and it has adored my childhood. If you agree and are with me, please sign this petition. Thank you. P.S. Also, please check out my Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/comebackkevinclash/
Petition to Netflix, Cartoon Network
Turn Galactic: KND into a Netflix original.
Growing up I enjoyed a show called Codename: Kids Next Door and it sadly ended in 2008. However Series Creator Tom Warburton Aka Mr. Warburton released an animatic of a potential sequel series called Galatic: KND. It had an overwhelming response and fans really wanted the show to be greenlit. That didn't work out, So I decided to start a petition for Cartoon Network to make this sequel series and turn into a Netflix original.
Petition to The Walt Disney Company
Please release the Nicholas Hammond Spider-Man TV series on DVD and Blu-Ray
In 1977, CBS aired a live-action "Spider-Man" TV movie that starred Nicholas Hammond as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. After the TV movie aired, CBS ran a "Spider-Man" TV series for two seasons before it was cancelled by the network. While the "Spider-Man" pilot TV movie and its TV series have both been released on VHS tapes in the past, it has yet to be released on DVD and/or Blu-Ray. We, the fans, hope that the TV series will be released on both a DVD set for all 6 Regions and on Blu-Ray for all 3 Regions. If possible, we'd like to see some special features as well, possibly a new interview with the series' star Nicholas Hammond. Please help us make this dream a reality.
