Hiya.

I wanted to post a link to a kickstarter I thought others might like to join, but there does not seem to be a "Kickstarter Announcement Thread" like we have over on RPGGeek. Over there we have one pinned to the Announcement Items list so it's always on the front page.

I think you should have something similar where people can post a link and brief info on kickstarter/indigogo campaigns for board games.

It's called "RPG Kickstarter/Crowd-funding Announcement Thread - 2013 Edition" over there FYI.

Thanks!

Sam / Bifford

Thanks Kim, that would indeed be the same thing. unusually I did a search for Kickstarter within the forums but that thread did not show up (yet it has been Tagged with kickstarter).

I shall go add this nice little Meercat game....

It was originally called Kickstarter announcement thread but it was agreed that as Kickstarter excludes more counties than it includes, the more general term 'Crowdfunding' would be used instead to welcome all BGG users funding projects.

Yeah, that's cool.

Can I still recommend adding it as a sticky post to the announcement section though? I couldn't find it and that would help other people interested, but only knowing of "kickstarter" or "indigogo" for example. I personally can never remember the term "crowdfunding"!

Having it in announcement would, I think, help

The announcements section is reserved for special promotions (contests etc).

I've added both Kickstarter and Indiegogo to the title of the Kickstarter list to help users find it via searches.
