GDNet should use it's popularity and start a crowdsourcing service like kickstarter but exclusively for video games.

It's a no brainer really, developers come here to make games which sometimes takes money (or even just the promise of money) to do. Those developers will also know very quickly whether or not their project are worth while because of donations they receive.

There are no up-front commitments by either the project starters or donators so there will be plenty of activity.

GDNet will profit like kickstarter which charges 5% of the funds raised and I'm sure a similar percentage would be acceptable at GDNet.

It's popular among game developers, but not gamers. Game developers make bad sponsors =P

Besides.. another kickstarter/8-bit funding/rocket hub/desura/ulele/indiegogo..? Any one of those has way more traffic and already have set reputations for funding.

Do one thing and do it well.

An even better use would be to leverage that popularity and end world poverty and end all violence, save the whales, and cure cancer.
