Try to keep the promoting of the KS campaign a bit organized so we are not stepping on each other toes.

Reddit /r/pcgaming

It's posted in the /r/pcgaming sub-reddit, figured it would get drowned out in the main /r/gaming reddit.  Upvote and comment.

Maybe John can do an AMA as well.

Places I've seen other people promote

I have just done a few friendly clan forums, bigfooty.com, cybergamer.com.au, overclockers.com.au, and facebook and MSN. Already got $140 out of one guy (though i'm not really claiming it). :)

Anybody have a NeoGAF account that can post new threads?

$425,000 might have been a bit ambitious.

A new thread, then this existing kickstarter list thread are good places to start.

http://www.neogaf.co...ad.php?t=469116

I think a good way to promote it is by of course besides leaving the link, is actually telling people a little about the project and whos running the show. Makes it a bit more enticing for folks to click on the link with some information on what its about up front.

Awesome stuff to all those here helping spread the word! Posted Image

I don't think it's an attitude towards BFS necessarily.  They do keep their forums pretty "clean" considering the size of their forums.  I had already noted the locked thread and added the open thread on the OP.

I think it's more of an attitude in general.

Ok I have also done www.gamearena.com.au and http://whirlpool.net.au (bumped the original thread from 5 years ago LOL). Lukewarm response so far on the competitive gaming forums, better everywhere else.

Good to see such a positive response on the Serellan forums :)
