Just wanted to voice my dissatisfaction with the blanket ban on Kickstarter linking. I understand where the rule is coming from but it seems extreme and unnecessary. I, personally, am interested in supporting the Kickstarters of other members of the forums, or Kickstarters that come under discussion and that members want to share with others. The fact that there's a risk of some members whoring their Kickstarter in an annoying manner isn't enough, I feel, to justify banning the linking of Kickstarters whatsoever. I think home-grown forum projects are really great (and our forums have spawned some winners) and allowing forumers to support each other's projects through Kickstarters is worthwhile.
I don't know if this rule is just tentative or if it's even negotiable at all, but I figured I would at least voice my opinion and Tube can come in here and rip me a new one if he's so inclined.
NOTE: I accidentally posted this originally in the Vanilla Issues forum and I can't seem to edit it or delete it, sorry.
