Beta access was for the duration of the Kickstarter, the full site is now available to everyone https://www.bellingcat.com/
Can we get an update? Still don't have beta access.
Where is the 'list of supporters' in the website ?
I wondeor when the t-shirts will be shipped?
Good luck with keeping up the good job you do.
Awesome! I really look forward to it. Your project is the first one I have ever donated to. Really appreciate what you do.
Hi Jonathan, we're sending out a message today, we'll be recording the podcasts this week, and should also have the 15 minute video done by the end of the week too, so we'll send those out some time next week. We'll send the longer video and other bits and pieces the following week. UK Kickstarters have to wait two weeks before any money is paid to the person running it, so we've only just got that to pay for everything.
Love your work.
Just was wondering when we can roughly expect the investigative starter kit to be released?
Seems to be working now, though image loading seems slow (could be my dodgy 3G connection though). It would be interesting to see an IP breakdown of the DDoS attack (though comandeered PCs can be in any country).
Technically savvy anti-western extremists -- what a world...
Saw your work called out on CNN tonight. Great job. Keep on.
Currently *someone* is DDoSing the site, we're working on getting a solution. Probably thanks to all our work on the Islamic State.
Is the bellingcat website down? Hopefully because it's so popular?
Nice work Eliot. I couldn't be more proud to support this project. Bellingcat family, feel free to add Marcus Henry Weber on FB or @MarcusHWeber on Twitter to see my work on the Syrian revolution and conflict. I'm looking forward to working with you all.
Congratulations! just checking in and saw that you'd exceeded your goal. Nice. Looking forward to seeing what develops.
Congratulations! I've backed several Kickstarter projects, but this is by far the most potentially important one - great to see it get up. Well done to all concerned.
Thanks Eliot. Will there be anything else on the T-Shirt? :-)
Currently it's black, although we'll consider other colour options.
you have my support. Good luck in next 4 days :-)
Btw. How the T-shirt will look like? I haven't found any rendering. Will it be black?
Maybe you already know about this but there's an article in a french website about Bellingcat: http://www.slate.fr/story/90625/syrie-youtube
Thanks, I appreciate your help.
I have pledged £50 for the work of Brown Moses. Good luck Eliot - hope you get there.
Hi Anne, I've resent it.
I'm missing my login info too... Anne Wayman. Thanks
Amazing idea! I have worked with journalists in the past and think it is so important to give citizens a tool to report their injustice. Hope your campaign will succeed. We are currently running a campaign for a mobile video app: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1366255264/filmkit I've backed your project and I will continue sharing your campaign link with my network. We strongly believe that great projects need to be supported and invested in to make great things happen, drive innovation and improve our society. Maybe you want to share our link too?
Dear Sr. Brown Moses, I've pledged my support with the hope that someone(s) in my part of the world, El Salvador, will find Bellingcat, learn the trade and begin to assist in the reduction of violence, the resolution unsolved homicides and the perpetrators of death and corruption that torment this country. Excellent work. Thank you.
