You don’t have your ask box open, no submit, and have shown no proof that you have the band’s permission to ask for funds/ auction off fanworks, so no I won’t be taking my reblog down.
Also, some others have raised questions of their own:
“Why are you auctioning off fan works when there can be real SPG merchandise, if the band is all for it? How does the fan artist obtain permission from the band before giving you permission, and how are you getting into contact with fan artists that you want? How are artists coming to contact you if they wish to donate their work without a submit/ask that is open?”
“Who is running the committee (both user name and something similar to a real name so we know who is donating the money), and why is this going via paypal, which has limits set, instead of an actual fundraising website?”
“Why did you decide to be the one to represent the fandom right away, instead of passing it by the band first and letting THEM be the ones to ask for representatives? The fandom is pretty large, with VERY opposing views within itself. Suggesting that SPG goes to this, and putting it to a vote would have more people behind the idea, would get all the information out there, and wouldn’t have people thinking it’s a scam.”
"With you putting yourselves as ‘representing the fandom’ and yet it seems very few people know who you are, it doesn’t feel like a good representation of who or what the fandom is. Furthermore, we have no idea what you stand for in the fandom, and that worries a LOT of people including fan artists and writers, as to how you’re going to present us to the public."
I’m afraid the whole thing just still smells fishie and you’re going to have to give the fandom as a whole a lot of answers before my or many other peoples opinions change.
