I apologize it took so long for me to respond to this. I had started to, but then things came up. So here we go:

I have no idea. I think @TheJohnP would be the go-to guy for this.

I'm not 100% sure either, but can look into and start reaching out to that community. I believe some feedback/discussion areas are for "backers only," but can't say that is across the board. I'll see what I can uncover.

Maybe we should also consider outreach to the Drop/Massdrop communities? I don't think there is a need to buy in order to be part of the discussion. Could be another area for finding new members.

---- Similar to WUS, I would like to see a thread where I could post eBay auctions. However I'm afraid I would be the only one who uses it and I know most people are more interested in seeing the sales subforum grow and succeed.

I don't see why that can't be done now. See the recent Vintage Watch and Accessory Deals thread for example.
I appreciate you taking the time and thought to respond to everything. I wasn't very clear about the ebay idea. What I had in mind is a subforum within the Bazaar section, where members (mostly me, I'm sure) can post listings for watches that are being auctioned on ebay, to alert other members that they can bid them. Something like they have on WUS, which is where I post them now. I know everybody here wants to see our sales subforum grow and thrive, and I'd like to contribute to that too by selling here. But in addition to selling here, I know I'll continue to auction some watches on ebay (there are some watches and some circumstances where ebay auctions make more sense than selling on a forum despite the fees) and I'd like to be able to let MoTers know about them. Interested to know what anyone thinks. Thanks.

Just to follow up, I did check on some of the current live Kickstarter campaigns and the comment section is for backers only.
What I can do is post something to the live campaigns here that if someone has backed a project, to let the other backers know they can add to the discussion here.

This is great! Now that more pics will go up on IG, is there a way to put one of these little links somewhere on the home page? I'm guessing there is no equivalent for Tapatalk?

Thinking in addition to the WRUW daily post, maybe feature a "deal of the week" for a post from earlier in the week. Just to give a taste of what happens here on a daily basis. Expect the deal would be done by the time it was featured, but gives the IG folks a sense of "I could've got that for THAT price?!?"

For instance the post could feature:
Picture of watch.
Sale price that was found.
Link to prior post if possible.
