-The going is actually pretty strong, given the circumstances. Right now the ~15k is comprised of smaller donations instead of a few big donors, which indicates a larger base. We might not be able to hit 50k in one day, but I'd be very surprised if we didn't hit it at the end of the week.
-Regarding the big-ticket items, only one poster has been claimed so far, as opposed to the original campaign, which had a cameo and two heroes claimed right out the gate, if I remember correctly. I think the reason for this is twofold -- the shorter notice for Q means that people had about two to three weeks to put away money for it, as opposed to the six months or so between Dynamique appearing on the blog and the campaign launching.
The second point is that I think the big-ticket items are less of a bang for their buck this time around. The QIA agent cameo is roughly equivalent to the villain backing last time around, which was $1000; the hero backing the last time around allowed the big backers to make a permanent and recurring impact on the A-H universe, while we're not sure if the cameos will stretch beyond the Q side story.
Of course, this is only half a day into a 30 day campaign, and I hope I'm terribly wrong.
