Being that kickstarter is the new craze for funding potential games, is it possible to create a special section for post requesting funding and for comments regarding kickstarter stuff.

I think for one it would be easier to find kickstarter threads and, two it doesn't clog up the Forums board.

Additionally, it would be nice to have an option for "Kickstarted" in the status section of our collection information.

In the past when I was supporting Kickstarter projects, I just marked them as "Preordered" in my collection with a note in the Private data section stating Kickstarter.

I appreciate these links. I have looked all over and couldn't find a forum for Kickstarter, could you please tell me the route you take to get to this kickstarter page.

I think it needs to be a bit easier to find, and being on the front page of BGG wouldn't be a bad idea either.

Officially, all mentions of CURRENT kickstarter projects on these forums is considered advertisement by the administration and is heavily regulated.

If you are interested in hearing about NEW kickstarter projects, feel free to subscribe to this thread: Crowdfunding Announcements thread (Kickstarter, Indiegogo, etc). In addition, subscribing to this geeklist is often helpful: Boardgame Kickstarter Projects

If you would like to get into detailed discussions about any current projects or issues related to kickstarter, please subscribe to the kickstarter family forums here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forum/915012/kickstarter/genera...

I suggest subscribing to that family forum and placing it in your quickbar (top right of the screen, click one of the little + icons) because it can be hard to find by navigating around the site and doesn't show up on any search function.

Me too. I don't want to do that anymore.

Yes it is. I have had success following the KS forum by using its RSS feed. Although many threads don't start there, so you need to drop by every now and then if you want to make sure you haven't missed anything.
