POLL: Disney scanning

Author

I’m thinking about setting up a new forum for Disney scanning. This is something I’ve been thinking about for a while.

This is how it will work. I would set up a forum on a VPS and start inviting people over, everyone there must bring something to be a member. This would include collectors/people with film, scanners who want to be on the forum, people who do Disney projects, people who help in practical ways including working on releases, and people who donate towards costs. I will set-up a simple recurring payment system for the latter group to ensure everyone is actively participating in some way. The forum itself would be private and not visible to non-members. It would allow me to bring together people from a variety of places into one place with a common purpose.

Record your vote here. It’s an external poll as I’m posting this question across a few places.

Feel free to discuss the idea.

I voted! As I plan to donate to some of your projects from time to time and would be beyond interested to see how they would turn out, I couldn’t pass up the chance to say that “I’d be interested and would join”.

Interesting idea. My only fear – and I did just vote in the affirmative – is a completely closed system. I know that there have been times at OT when I have arrived just in time for projects such as would be featured here, and others where I have just arrived too late and that was that. I’d hope there would be a way for new enthusiasts to occasionally join. (Thinking of a certain private torrent site, frequently mentioned here, that’s been devoid of any invitations for years.)

The idea would be a forum for active participants in classic animation scanning so everyone can meet in one place. I’d probably set it up without any regular donors to begin with and then let the forum decide who they’re comfortable with inviting.

It’s not envisioned as a forum for release, rather as a safe private space for people organising projects and others who may want to participate.

Voted too! Some people like me don’t have the expertise in restorations but I would gladly help in any way you need(donations, site building etc) towards Disney restoration projects.
