    Interest in Kommunity Kickstarter Katchup?

    Since RPS' own Kickstarter Katchup is a bit irregular and limited in scope by the nature of its format, I thought about us doing our own Katchup in the form of a forum thread which would be stickied like the PC Bargains thread. People could present kickstarter projects they stumbled upon, talk about the progress of backed games and people could ask backers questions. It would especially help smaller projects that would simply be buried within minutes.
    I am interested to hear what people think about this.

    I'm thinking you can pick a better acronym.

    Why is this a suggestion, rather than just starting it?

    My council informed me it would be an act of tyranny to just go ahead and sticky my own threads and lower the opinion of the burghers by 20 for six months.
    Well, there does seem to be interest and I will commence to create such a thread once I find some time, presumably around this weekend.

    First step would, surely, be to choose a different name, and then, as if by magic, the acronym would also change. Kommunity Kickstarter Katchup Kollectiv?

    He's redeeming the acronym.
    (Although once you're changing 2/3rds of the words in the title to be mispelled, you're just out of control anyway. What did your council say about THAT?)

    P.S. I hope it is a Civ 2 council complete with terrible Elvis impersonator.

    Point taken, but your choice of video has myriad unfortunate implications.
    I think of [the Internet] as a grisly raw steak laid out on a porcelain benchtop in the sun, covered in chocolate hazelnut sauce. In the background plays Stardustís Music Sounds Better With You. Thereís lots of fog. --tomeoftom

    You ruined his point by putting it in context thatís cheating -bull0

    I'm cracking up over here. :D

    Wow seriously Anthile, this hole... just stop digging. You're never going to be able to own white sheets again.

    On topic, and in an attempt to rescue you - yes. Yes I would.
    Nalano's Law - As an online gaming discussion regarding restrictions grows longer, the probability of a post likening the topic to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea approaches one.

    Fine, I'm going with Unaco's suggestion. It's just not worth the bother.

    To be clear, I think you make a fair point in terms of this being an international forum and what-not. The US right-wing activist group by way of terrorist organization shouldn't be let to wholly encompass a triplicate K in such an international forum. We'd run out of letters if we did things that way because there are a lot of countries represented here with a lot of nasty organizations.

    There're just so many ways to interpret that clip depending on how much context you pull into it and each one provides more ... dissonance with the way you meant it than the last. It's a gift that keeps on giving. And I'm still giggling because I'm a terrible bastard and I'm sorry.

    Edit: Awwwwwwwww, kitty!
