If it would be only 2,3 or maybe 4 people and everyone of them donates as example 50 dollars to the spriter, no middleman would be needed indeed.No middleman is needed at all. This can be easily accomplished by, as has been stated before, getting a willing spriter who is up to the task of spriting anything (good luck finding one of those) and donating directly into his account. Your involvement serves no purpose.
The idea was based on the 21 voters for Bryan Fury and dividing the costs of "as example" 500 dollars for something good through 10, 20 or even 50 people if there would be so many mfg members interested to fund a character.And as has been state in the thread already, there wasn't some big upset that prevent Bryan Fury from winning. You know, some people accept that their favorite didn't win, shrug, and move on with their life. You, on the other hand, make a thread trying DESPERATELY to get it made.
20 or 30 people can still just send their 5 or 10 bucks to the spriter directly, but in the long run..organizing is really easier through one single paypal account.And again, that paypal account should be the spriter's paypal account.
As always you are so very right with your assumptions About me and what i do, oh man i feel soo ashamed for bringing up the idea of crowdfunding Mugen characters. But why are you mentioning Sean so often when nobody else did?Because... You started this thread in response to a Seanaltly poll not ending up in your favor? Not to mention in an earlier post, you mention that the holy trifecta of people involved in this project would be:
1) The Donators
2) The Spriters
Nowhere did you mention a coder, so if you were counting on the spriter to code as well, that narrows down the field quite a lot to, well, pretty much Sean.
The idea would be to get a list together of spriters who are interested to take commissions.See the problem is that most of Guild's commission spriters are already heavily occupied. You would have to be ridiculously lucky to get one guy who is willing to sprite a full character that he may or may not like, and have to share equal credits with a dude who did nothing but tell OTHER PEOPLE to cough up $5. Did you even plan ahead who is even going to code this thing? Hell I can't think of anyone in the MUGEN community who is willing to have some guy with an over-inflated ego dump a bunch of sprites on him and say "here make a character out of this," no matter how much money you throw at him.
