Kickstarter for forum guys

Ok i had an idea just let me know what you guys think.

There is a website that is called Kickstarter Discover Projects Ľ Technology — Kickstarter
Basically you come up with a poject or need assistance financially to get something done.

So i was thinking if there is someone in the forum that requires some money to bring an Alfa back to life we could fund his/her project by donating a small amount.

For example: Bob has an Alfa 156 which has failed MOT due to upper wishbones....he creates a kickstart and whoever wants to help by donating our fellow Alfa owner member have his Alfa back on the road can donate any amount to fund his repair out of goodwill.

Maybe a section of the forum called Kickstarters??

I don't think it's a good idea, and I doubt the forum would want to officially get involved.

I would imagine the first few might make a relatively large amount of money because of the novelty, leaving everyone afterwards to feel shortchanged by the whole thing when they get nothing.

Maybe an individual kickstarter because a well loved member or car has fallen on hard times might work.

Can we come up with a project to fund a new selespeed actuator design? That way it never fails, i would be glad to add 10 pounds a month towards the kickstart. :-)

kickstarter has a lot of restrictions on what they will accept, and you have to be in the USA to start a project. Indiegogo, on indiegogo.com, offers a better fit for what you're proposing..

Kick starter is for commercial enterprises not a begging bowl.

I think that every time I read how somebody writes what a bargain they got . They will expect to spend nothing maintaining it then it breaks . Values go down even more bargain and people don't bother to look after the cars . Then they get a bad reputation .
