    Can I just step out and say that I am sick of seeing everyone come on this board if only to throw up a link to the Kickstarter Project that they need funding on....I am sure that some of them are great and need to be funded but this is not the place for them. We have been hit with 2 alone this week. Can we make a rule that anyone with a Kickstarter and tries to promote it on the boards get the boot (at least the thread). Its getting really old quickly to see all these people asking for money all the time
    Jesus loves you, but everyone else thinks you're an asshole.

    Best part? A kick starter for a "huanted" yard.

    You want FREE money, but won't take the half of a second to proofread your stuff?!

    I think I give about $200 a month to different kick starters. I read about 3-4 a day. almost all of them are haunt related. What I look for is that the kickstarter is for a product as opposed to being for a person or business. I always give what it takes to get one of the products as a reward- so I look at it like I bought something...maybe. There are some good ones, and there are some pan handling ones.

    Allen I agree.

    I recently backed the "tile" app for 18.95. Again, as you said, was for a PRODUCT.

    Im considering doing a kickstarter for my next video, pay for the production and replication by presales via "rewards"for pitching in. a few rewards that guarantee products.
    I really want to do two videos a year, but thats quite a pace with everything else.

    For the price of your current DVD or maybe just a tad more I can almost guarantee people will be interested - I would be. You bring a good bit to the table regarding helping the DIYers and those on a budget to achieve professional results. Count me in.

    I've been thinking of doing one for HauntDesignKit.com ...I have several projects that I'm working on that's eating up a lot of time, not to mention the website is completely free and maintaining it takes a lot. IDK though...I don't like how Kickstarter does the whole; "if you don't make your goal you don't get anything". Should be guaranteed because people did pay for stuff, do they get their money back?

    Still debating...Allen, I'd back yours for sure!

  10. Default Kickstarter

    Hey Tyler. Kickstarter does not charge a contributor until the end of the funding period AND only if the goal is met. It is run through Amazon.
    Kickstarter takes 5% of the total raised and Amazon gets 3% or so. I believe Indie-Gogo has a setup that allows an option to take what you make.
    You might want to check them out to find out if either one would fit what you want to do. Best of luck!
