So...you want people to hand you an obscene amount of money for a not-a-cruise-but-on-a-cruise-ship by a certain date before they even know what event is going to be exactly? What happens to those people who were stupid enough to pay at the time who see the details after you get them and go "This sucks, I want my money back." You're going to make them pay the fees because they woke up and realized this is a bad idea?
Hey guyz, give me funds for what already sounds like a less-than-stellar idea, the details of which I will tell you AFTER I have pocketed your money. Oh btw, check or money orders are preferred.
Yeah...doesn't sound shady AT ALL.
But it's okay guyz, his paypal has been verified! Isn't that impressive?! Totally trustworthy!
There's only so far community support and trust can go, and you are waaaaay beyond that in assuming you can fill a freaking BOAT on this tripe your feeding everyone. It's not the otaku that have money to burn you're aiming at, it's retards that will get behind anything that has the chance of letting them revel in their fandom in new and interesting ways. Your niche market is the stupid
otaku with money to burn.What does it truly mean to be otaku?
Apparently you have to be batshit loco or just dumb to boot. I'd like to think higher of the general populace of our fandom, especially the ones who have proven themselves to earn enough money to blow on stuff like this and that's why the proverbial boat is going to sink.
