LET'S START A FUND TO CREATE A COPPER STATUE OF OUR GLORIOUS LEADER, MOOT
OPERATION COPPER MOOT (name tentative)
bigstatues.com will work with a client to create any custom statue. so far we think pic related should be the pose.
1) get a quote for possible commission costs
2) decide on size, pose, details of statue
4) set up fundraising campaigns across interwebz
typing up the message to send them right now. post ideas and questions ITT. lets get this ball rolling, /b/ros
1) Its too late (in America) to get quotes now
2) Should be life size, normal statue of the mooty moot moot
4) Did someone do this yet?
5) Find a park. Probably somewhere crappy, like Cleveland.
I did a bit of quick and dirty research and it looks like the cost for a life-size bronze (I assume you want bronze and not copper, because copper is way too soft) can range from $5,000 - 8,000 at the low end to upwards of $50,000 depending on the quality and reputation of the sculptor.
Holy shit. This needs to be done.
When it 404's, unattended bags in cities everywhere with moot's face on them so there's a global panic thinking he's connected to a major terrorist plot.

That's peanuts given this site's traffic. We raised many times this much on /pol/ for Darren Wilson, then were approaching this for a billboard on kickstarter saying #PANTSUPDONTLOOT in Ferguson. /b/ could raise that in a few hours, assuming the underageb& isn't the majority here. (Frankly, it probably is. I think a lot of us migrated to other boards as we got older)
So much samefagging in this thread. Someone with a proxy obviously wants this to happen. There's no one on /b/ you can trust to collect funds and not run off with the money. Did you fucking idiots learn nothing from /pol/?
>b-b-ut they got refunded
No.. no they didn't.
Do I see you doing anything, fucking mong?
As much as it pains me to say it we cant go too overboard with design or he probably will just tell us no. We can /b/ it up but if we go too far its just going to be a waste of time and money that some other anon gets to pocket.
Do a kickstarter for it, after browsing this site since the age of 12 I finally have disposable income to where I can drop a thousand or two on something retarded.
Also, from /mu/:
>Wrote a goodbye song for our captain. If anyone feels like mixing this into something finished, go for it. It's yours.
>My vocals aren't too great but you get the idea. Feel free to fix this and do whatever you want with it.
>Bye Moot. Thanks and fuck you and all the good stuff.
"So long, space cowboy"
Donate to a public park (Hopefully NYC for it to be a major tourist attraction) and donate that park at least 10,000 dollars so they have to take our shitty statue and money. Heck if 100,000 dollars pops up, then we would be guaranteed to have the statue in a park
Besides the bronce/stone/whatever statue, let's do a 3D model so we can print that shit. Anyone knows an industrial designer or something?

>get buttblasted when you don't get it back
I put in five bucks to the Darren Wilson fund with a "Fuck Niggers" comment, and it went through. Five dollars was worth it. This is an issue though, is making sure there's oversight on the fundraising. I've considered a few times setting up a website where a user can create a goal for fundraising, fundraise, and my site administration would complete the goal to increase credibility. I remember some posts on /pol/ at the time that suggested ways to make it 100% legit, but can't remember HOW.
THIS NEVER FORGET THIS #pantsupdontloot
We cannot do a fund, kickstarter won't allow this, and indiegogo is a scam.
paste bin here
It's simple and explains everything about the bags
does kickstarter not allow for some fraud protection? Like not charged until X amount has been promised. Then of course we have to hope they run with it.. but it can all easily be documented as he orders the statue etc. we are /b/etter than this.
OP here boyos.
Here's the message I'll send the company.I am serious about this and will probably use my real name.
>Hello, I represent a large community in search of a studio that can create a statue for us. I've been doing a lot of research and I've happened across your company. I'm very impressed by the work that's showcased on the website and feel like Big Statues may just be what we're looking for.
>I would like to get a quote on a potential order. The statue's dimensions would roughly be that of an average male. Its likeness would be that of the honoree in which we would like to dedicate the statue to. As for references, how many pictures would I need to provide?
>I also am intrigued by an idea I saw under your "fundraising" section; miniture casts of the statue to make available to members of the community. That's truly an ingenius idea and I'd love to find out more about what other great options are available.
>Look forward to hearing from you soon.
>Sincerely, Anon E. Moose
Someone promised to erect a billboard of #PANTSUPDONTLOOT and without asking any questions about the legitimacy of the guy running the fundraiser, everyone started giving him money.
It was months later after the fundraiser got $1,500 that someone actually called the company he was claiming to use to place the billboard. The company basically said "we have no fucking idea what you're talking about we'd never put that up"
Then damage control kicked in and the two namefags behind the donation said it was "SJWs sabotaging the operation".
Long story short: They ended up with over 3k and were never heard from again after it was hit.
With the inscription: "I wish to be the little girl" or "brb soup"
I would sooner chew of my own arms, dick and legs than give a penny for a statue for that faggot.
4chan is ruining my life.
I'm on all day, every day instead of working. Good thing I work from home, but it will only be so long before they notice because I keep delivering the sales.
So fuck moot and his little pony he rode in on.
The statue should be of moot in jeans and a t-shirt. He wasn't (even if he wanted to be) an (admittedly) pretty ballerina, nor was he a serious man who fancies suits. He was just a normal guy, just like all of us.
T-shirt should say "Convicted Sex Offender"
>hey gimme your money guys! I promise it'll go to (subject)
Nice try faggot
This thread has to be a samefag with a bunch of IPs/Proxies
There's no way there's this many stupid fucks in here who think this is a good idea.
Finally, someone with some god damn common sense.
Operation copper moot fund raiser
ITT: Statue never happens. Some faggot anon runs off with all the money
come on now this is the kind of farewell bash that /b/ can pull of and be both proud of and ashamed of depnding on what we put in the bags and whether or not we call them in as bomb threats
That idea is gay as fuck. Did you really suggest a fucking _gem_ clover?
OP's pic is clearly the best option. He's not going to have anything "removed".
Oh god a "suit", fucking original. God damn it I hate you
so we want moot in a suit? what this one, from when we got him to be TIME'S Most Influential person?
also copper or bronze? depending on the actual interest in this we could of course use a different commission artist and make it from higher quality materials. we need to be realistic though so no 20ft tall moot with a hard-on
I'm sold you can have my money. And I'd be ecstatic if I get a little moot-figure out of it
Time stamp with desk for at least one non OP here
Statue has to be Time Magazine Moot. This will something for the generations.
NO KICKSTARTER OR GOFUNDME UNTIL I GET A REPLY WITH AN ACTUAL COMMISSION COST
I WILL OPEN UP A BUSINESS BANK ACCOUNT TO DO ALL THIS SHIT IF NEED BE
dammit we need more organization than just this thread. fagbook page maybe?
who is Sam Bellar?
what is his connection to the current project?
Why has OP not given his name and timestamp of him sending the message?
Why are we talking about giving money before we wait the week for them to get back to us.
OP twitter/blog about the matter when?
Fucking do it. I'll srsly drop hundreds or thousands on this if I get mini bronze statues like >>594066306
Just do it through some reputable fundraising site so I know I'm not buying dakis for one of you cunts
This is bullshit. A full-sized, well-made statue, from design to cast, would cost AT LEAST $20,000, probably more like $25-$30k.
>making a fagbook page instead of a forum
What are we, teenagers new to the internet? Fuck facebook. I want to go back to the dispersed forum days where my full name wasn't tied to everything. SET UP AN INVISION FREE POWERBOARD LIKE THE OLD DAYS
yes, gonna ask them about that in my first message
going to set up an email for #OperationBronzeMoot
And where is this statue going to be placed?
Legitimate statement here guys. I have a 2 ft by 2 ft maker bit 3rd printer. If someone makes me a 3rd model and emails it to me, I'll fucking print mini moots. Mini. Fucking. Moots. I will charge charge 1$ for every statue. They shall be mootkins, and will have what ever the fuck written on them that you want.
my thoughts exactly anon, thank you.
>tfw when i am literally tearing up for someone i have never met
RIP in peace Moot. I'm sure we'll all still be here when and if you ever return.
THIS THIS A THOUDAND TIMES THIS
I dont know if you know this but theres so many fucking problems with wanting to put up a statue of moot in a public place/park
You have to get administration from the mayor/buy licences/etc...
I don't give a fuck where it gets put. I'd rather it be put in OP's front lawn. That'd be a better story and OP would have the added bonus of his front lawn becoming a sight-seeing spot for losers and vagrants
He still made a home for us and you mother fucking know it and can't deny that this is the only place that is fit for us neckbearded cock suckers even if he backstabbed us all to the feminist mods
Bumping with opinion:
IMO suit moot is only one that would be allowed in any park in all likely hood. Maybe him holding a clover or have like a clover pin on his chest. Idk putting ideas out there
>2) Should be life size, normal statue of the mooty moot moot
No, we need to build a new Colossus of Rhodes, with his mighty stride bridging the rocks of Gibraltar, but also with the face of moot and a large bronze clock operated penis to strike down any passing ships.
>and a bottle of Hitlerdidnothingwrong Dew
OP HERE. Made an email for all things Operation Bronze Moot
WELL DO IT THEN, FAGGOT. EMAIL ME IF YOURE SERIOUS
I am OP, this is my face. I dont care if you know who I am
I want one too. bumping for minimoot statue
OP confirming this is good. will copy info down
Basically, but I think we're still a little torn on the design. Everything is pretty much down pat except for the aesthetics, so if we can get the fundraiser or even a fucking straw poll up and running we could decide in a more organized way.
Fucking why. Moot looked awkward as fuck in that suit, it's not his image, he was obliged to wear that. I mean, maybe if you gave him an afro too, but then you could hardly recognize him.
Or if you're going to do a suit, don't model it after his suit pic, model it after soviet propaganda.
i mean i like moot enough to donate like $5 for a stupid statue that may or may not ever get built, but not enough to do things that could have actual consequences like placing fake bombs around my school would
NICE MAYMAY :^)
There needs to be some kind of iconic ridiculousness to it, however. Respectful suitm00t with overhead ears or some shit, right. Just a bronze guy in a suit? No one will know what the fuck it is. We need some kind of "what the fuck is that" factor but keep it respectful and legal t the same time.
Yeah, I'm totally going to give my money to strangers on the internet through a fundraising page that has zero guarantee that anything will come of the project.
Yep, let me get right on that.
Suit and afro or suit and Lenin-style, then?
Still, I think a suit is too stuffy. And his avatar always wore a skirt, it seems appropriate. Don't you remember when the homepage had the 4chan city flash?

> moot gets put in Guantanamo for terrorism
> that's what you get for leaving us you cucklord
Omfg faggots. We need skirtmoot. Suitmoot is just another guy in a suit. Skirtmoot is the moot we know. Also if you do >>594066306 with skirtmoot and write i wish to be the little girl, you can donate it to some left wing city park and say its to support the lgbt community or some shit. There is something there
Or donate it to some lgbt group that has a building or a yard somewhere in a big city, they will put it up for sure. I mean freedom of speech and transgender shit in 1 statue. People love that shit.
zeusmoot? replace thunder with banhammer
AND he keeps the skirt
Why don't we have both?
