You could end up with a lot of those posts very quickly.

Re: Star Trek Continues - Kickstarter Campaign

Create a class of TrekBBS user called "Sponsor" and have that type of member pay a small (but not non-zero) annual fee to be a member. Then only allow sponsors to post threads like this, and only in approved areas (e.g., the subforum idea). This is what my HOA community forum did, and it works great--sponsors get to hawk their wares, which regular users can seek out if they wish, but the ads (and that's essentially what those posts are--ads) don't overrun the forum, and TrekBBS makes a little money to offset hosting costs. Win win win.

Or we could just simply say no solicitations, and kick-ban violators for three days.

I don't think banning someone for 3 days for posting about a fan-film fundraiser is appropriate. When people make posts like that, they are just trying to help filmmakers out. People shouldn't be punished for good intentions. The best thing to do is to close the thread whenever this happens, and for the Moderator to message the person who posted the thread about why it was closed, so it doesn't happen again.

Re: Star Trek Continues - Kickstarter Campaign

I could go with that, but I think a deletion of the thread or at the very least its contents should be included. You want to stop it, then stop it.

Re: Star Trek Continues - Kickstarter Campaign

Since new users aren't allowed to do things like embed pictures, etc., if they could likewise not post clickable links, that would slow down the "drive by" advertising by people who join just to post one message to promote something.

Re: Star Trek Continues - Kickstarter Campaign

I really don't see anything wrong with posting an "FYI" type entry, with no direct links. Anyone who's motivated enough should be able to find the fundraising site without a link.

I also agree with this point.

We'll STC reached their target (and a bit extra). I kicked a few bucks to the cause because I really liked their first effort.

Re: Star Trek Continues - Kickstarter Campaign

If I understand correctly they have sufficient funding for two or three more episodes.

Re: Star Trek Continues - Kickstarter Campaign

Posted on TrekWeb is the news that STC's Episode 2 is slated to be released in mid March. Principle shooting is completed for Episode 2 and they're now in post production. They also plan to start filming Episode 3 around mid March as well.

Awesome!

Re: Star Trek Continues - Kickstarter Campaign

For those interested, Larry Nemecek has been really good about posting interviews and updates about production over at Star Trek Continues on his Facebook page. There's a great one with him and Chris Doohan as they're getting their makeup done that is rather amusing all on its own.
