We don't decide what goes on the Front Page [In reply to] Can't Post

You can send your idea to spymaster at theonering dot net - that's where Home Page decisions are made. Good luck!

Very interesting idea! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's not something TORn would do on its own. We run a website, and a few one-off fan events, and that's pretty much it. However, if a grass roots 'movement' was started, we'd probably publicize it. Before it goes on the Home Page though, it should really be at the point of being something that's already in the works, or at least well down the road of initial organization. We post concrete news stories on the Home Page, not 'what do you think of this idea....' questions.

Someone would have to take the initiative to start organizing a team: someone to look into land, someone to estimate what size building you'd need, costs for land, building and ongoing operations and maintenance, someone to look into legal matters (something tells me NZ just doesn't automatically accept remains from people who aren't NZ citizens from all over the world). Once you have a viable business plan, it might be a good candidate for crowd fundraising, but you dare not formally propose it as such until you have all your ducks in a row, or no one will donate.

I don't meant to be too negative. If you believe in it, it's definitely something you should look into! As a person who advises business persons, I just want throw some food for thought your way. Smile
