Cyberfund_creat changed to Crowdfunding
You've probably seen me refer to the community "cyberfund_creat" before. It has now been renamed to crowdfunding. LJ should forward links using the old name; for future links, please use the new name.

This community is a place for creators and donors to talk about communal funding of creative projects. You can post about projects you're working on, cool things that your friends are doing, questions about how crowdfunding works, and so forth. Our Links list features many projects for you to explore.

Also, this week is Icon Week. We're encouraging creative folks to post icons that say things like "Crowdfunding" or "Crowdfunded Project." Afterwards we'll nominate favorite icons and choose one as the community default.

I like the term "crowdfunding" better anyway. Gives a more accurate picture of what it is, IMHO.

Speaking of crowdfunding, a bit of dark humour: http://twitter.com/yeoldgldnaplprs/status/2529268926

Thoughts

The main drawback to "crowdfunding" is that it's a great deal broader, and most of that is business/finance rather than creative content. We'll probably pick up more viewers, but I don't know how many of them will be interested in our particular activities.

Re: Thoughts

Hadn't thought of that.
