Update posted after 3 years without delivery or a single comment or word to the backers. Is it about rewards being delivered? No .. just to yell at backers for saying bad things about him on the internet. Now that is a special type of creator! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/603140847/rhythm-metal-gaming-dice/posts/2260043

Update 27: General Overdue Update · Rhythm Metal Gaming Dice

We just felt we needed to put an update on the project that did not turn out the way we intended. We have had all the dice and other products sitting here in our attic for years because I lost all the money from the project because two Chinese companies screwed us and I paid everything out of my pocket to get the project completed as promised. When we explained to our kickstarter backers on the update no one cared or wanted to help me a little to…

You gotta love a creator that posts an update: Yes I do not have a license to make this game … but I’m sure I’ll get one before I produce the game for your reward!

Pledges shown in rewards account for 52 backers and $728 pledged

Project currently shows 91 backers and $5020 pledged

Almost 43% ghost backers and almost 86% ghost pledge $.

He has come on the KickStarter Best Practices group twice asking for advice to help his campaign do better while it is running which brought it to my attention.

I am not sure I’ve seen that level of ghost backers and ghost pledges for quite a while.

I’d like to get some thoughts on this from the intelligent hive-mind of KickSnarker.

I’d like to get some thoughts on this from the intelligent hive-mind of KickSnarker.

Here are the red flags:
1) Brand new KS creator with no projects beforehand … join KS in May 2018.
2) No backed projects
3) Running 52 projects at the same time (HOW that got past KS I’m still not sure)
4) The math on each of the 52 projects is way off. Backers at the reward level normally only account for 20% to 30% of each of the 52 projects.
5) The goal of the KS is one that I’m not even sure what I’m backing. A billboard for a political statement by an unknown artist but without any political agenda behind the project.

Does this feel wrong to anyone else. I know its an art project so not quite the hard and fast rules of KS that the gamer KS follow … but still this feels wrong and it really has me questioning KickStarter allowing it to happen (as new creators in their own terms are not allowed to create a 2nd campaign until the first has fulfilled) and even marking many of them as a Project They Love.

For Freedoms

For Freedoms was co-founded in 2016 by Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman to make art that encourages and deepens public explorations of freedom in the 21st century. We produce exhibitions, installations, public programs, and billboard campaigns to advocate for inclusive civic participation. Inspired by American artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941)—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom fro…

I have to know as if there is one I really want to study it. Has any project you know of lost over a quarter of a million $ in dropped backers and still finished successfully? I think this project is one for the reference books for later when folks ask for advice and thoughts on “what not to do”.

Ouch … that was a new one. Not happy with your errored backers??? Just post an image file of the complete list of them. In this day and age where data privacy is stressed so much, I am surprised to see a creator violate privacy this badly. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/901436411/necronomicon-dice/posts/2130834

Friends i have a lot of errored pledges. Please look and fix them. Here is the list.Don`t forget to write what dice do you want.Thank you.

Okay okay I know this creator is a super easy target (barn sized target for Snarking) but I just have to post a snark this lack of ability to keep a story straight by a KS creator. Lied so much you’ve completely lost track of them.

If you are going to bend the truth hard to your backers when your KickStarter project runs into trouble … make sure you keep a log of your statements for your later reference. Especially if you are using numbers. Sigh.

Two posts by the Creator of a project I am following:
2016.04.16 YouTube “…when I’m not working on my day job I’m trying to finish up Traveller … . I’m about 90% done, and this will get done”

2018.02.14 RPG blog “It takes mr 8hrs to edit 90 sec of greenscreen. I can do about 8hrs a week at best. Now that i have income, possabilties of restarting work is good. I am about 30% done [with Traveller].”

1 year and 10 months later … he appears to have lost 60% of the progress made on completion. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/d20e/spinward-traveller-tv-pilot

I see at least 2 days that I think the creator put in money to force it to be at the funding goal. This one has me a bit concerned because all the images are 3-D models and nothing molded and cast. So that means he is going to short on what he needs to do that or he included profit to himself for sculpting the figures in the initial funding goal that he is now willing to not receive. The 2nd is not great but okay … the first would a concern. http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/1521136174/santa-chaos-magnetic-modular-miniatures-fantasy-fo/#chart-daily

Okay this one really takes the cake for today.

Okay this one really takes the cake for today.

Make a huge deal about having reward levels that will definitely be to you the backer by Christmas.

Wait until the project ends and then right after it ends post an announcement saying thank you for backers … oh and by the way we definitely will not be able to deliver by Christmas.

The product we promised … the samples have defects in them and we are trying to fix them.

Oh and we said we would be EU friendly … well … we are not … but we are pretty sure we will be.

OH and we don’t like KickStarter so if you want to know what is going on … we’ll just be talking on Facebook.

Wow … just Wow. Maybe you see this happen 30 days later but HOURS after funding. When I saw the promised Christmas delivery I assumed it might be a popcorn possible KS project … cannot believe it happened that quickly though.

Due to the problem, approximately 2 weeks are delayed. We know that we …
