Apropos of the below
Thanks to all of you who've signed the McGonagall petition. I estimate the audience of my journal to be somewhere in the region of 50 people, however, so if you could actually post a link in your journal as well, that would be really appreciated.

I have some ideas for how to increase exposure, but without a critical mass of names in the first place, I don't think they'll be very effective, as I'm currently likely to get mistaken for an Internet nutter. (Can't think why, but that's the way it goes.)

Do it for the silly. You know you want to.

An excellent idea, thank you.

I'll do it for raising the profile of McGonagall. Because you can't describe someone's poetry as "in the fine tradiation of William McGonagall" if no-one knows who he was.

Precisely. The point is not so much to get McGonagall on a stamp as to bring new people to experience him.

Oh, I meant to repost this anyway, and forgot. Shall do so shortly!

Added it, on grounds that original_aj is a fan, I think you've had a few off that already...

If you wish to campaign for the dear loony, shall I send you a photo of his blue plaque over the other side of edinburgh for an icon?

Sadly my attempt to get more sigs via posting in Another Place was summarily deleted by the mods. I have no idea why.

Actually now I read the rules, I see it got declared as Advertising and Not Allowed. I should pay more attention.
