    That should always be kept by the acting Codex admin. Now it's DU. When he gives up on dealing with the mad people and starts wandering the Earth to forget, he'll pass the sausage on to his replacement, and so on. The sausage should be the real-life proof that "the Codex wuz there when they started Wasteland 2".

    The RPG Codex should be a band of Rocket Propelled Grenade wielding crazies.

    It would be nice if we could get a running total on the statute ASAP, so that we can decide which toilet to flush our money down whether to donate to the statue or directly to the kickstarter.

    We should also have a public list of donors, to ensure nobody's donation is misplaced.

    From what people have been posting on this thread and on the news thread, there may already be something like $400-$500 donated for the statue. Only DU and Taluntain could say for sure. A progress bar on the front page or at the top of all pages would be awesome though. Both because everybody would know where we stand and because it would make everybody aware of what we're doing.

    Will we be able to recoup our donation if we don't meet the target?

    I mean, I'd love to give a big donation to the Codex anyways, but I'm a student with very few jewgolds to throw around :(

    All the donations will go to the W2 Kickstarter. If we can't get enough for the statue tier, we may get enough for a location (or a few locations/NPCs or any combination thereof). If you can't afford donating too much, give just what you can afford. Hell, if I had the money to spend, I would get the statue tier for the Codex myself, but, unfortunately, that's not the case. Don't feel bad about it.

    It really makes no difference at this point since DU's confiscating all donation moneys for the statue.

    1) Some folks in the news thread are still confused about this

    2) People would like a running tally (counter)

    3) This seems like a pretty good idea:

    I think it was said both by DU and by Bee on both threads, but if you think it helps, maybe saying it again won't hurt. "All the money paid to the Codex PayPal account during the W2 Kickstarter will be used exclusively for that."

    That would be, indeed, great. If it is technically possible without having to put too much time/effort into getting it to work, it would be a very welcome addition.

    This I don't agree with, though. It feels too much like a dick measuring contest. The whole thing is not about who donates more but about getting together to do something to support the incline/stop the decline of the RPG genre and to leave a mark in there saying that we were there when the decline stopped and we were among those who made it happen.

    Yeah I see your side of it, I just thought the 3rd idea might bring out some friendly competition to push us over the hump.

    Also, I think there's 30 digital copies given to the 5k pledge? So, it may be just to ensure they get a copy.
