      Thanks we really appreciate the support! And also thank you for the ranking information on Kickstarter. We'll be sure to encourage more comments!

    25. on December 13, 2014

      I have enlisted some help from a couple of sources from fiver and will let you know when and if I see any traction.

      Kyle, perhaps you are unaware of this, but apparently part of the Kickstarter ranking in our projects has to do with the activity in the Comments section. Just a helpful gift from iDined to you for the holiday season, share this with your other backers of other projects and make the gift keep on giving. Make sure you tell your backers to come back and add a comment each day.
