The Final Hours! (Backers see bottom of post)
We are winding down here and about to cross the finish line. I would like to throw out a HUGE thank you to everyone who has donated so far - the response has been amazing.
Right now we are sitting at 114% funded, which is unexpectedly awesome. When we were developing this Kickstarter we thought it best to aim low, and cut back some of our ideas and plans, then to push for too much and end up with nothing. To have exceeded it has been a amazing surprise.
Our original goal was $2500, but in order to play it safe we cut back some of our planned expenditures in order to give us some more security. Right now, with over $2200 raised we are so happy. We are near our original goal and hopefully you can hope us get even closer.
With the full $2500 we can do everything we originally planned, such as afford the licensing for the best forum software available, instead of going for something free like phpBB; and buy an HD webcam for recording our own videos and updates. Of course there is even more we want to do with the extra money, from buying goodies to giveaway to members (from fun stickers to new book releases), to paying server costs even further down the road, and more.
So if you are on the fence please still consider donating. Every dollar is still a great help and will help us reach our stretch goal of $2500, which will allow us to pursue even greater things and give us more breathing room.
For existing backers:
To show our appreciation to everyone who has donated, we will be sending out personalized thank-you emails to EVERY donor, not just those who donate $25 and above (expect these shortly after the project ends).
Also for those who are going to be receiving rewards, such as recognition on our site, or postcards; we will also be sending our backer-surveys soon to get all the necessary information, so please check your email.
There are a couple people who have donated over $10 who choose the "no reward" option, you can change that easily by clicking the blue "Manage Pledge" button to the right, and correct that if it was an error.
