Hey all,

With the future of TEF reliant upon finding money to continue the project, why not take into consideration websites such as Kickstarter which allow funding for projects to go ahead?

Truthfully I'm not entirely sure how such sites work (although project guidelines seem pretty straightforward) or if it's possible for a TEF project to actually raise enough money for further development, but it was a thought that crossed my mind earlier and wanted to see if there's any potential in it.

I understand Kickstarter is for US and UK only but surely with a reliable person to back the project, this can be overcome.

So, thoughts? Could such a website be helpful for the future of The Endless Forest?

Considering that donations currently barely cover the cost of maintaining the server, I doubt if a Kickstarter project would be successful. One does not do a Kickstarter campaign casually. It's a lot of work, so the prospect needs to be good.
