      Kickstarter needs to have a way for users to designate some projects as failures, rather than including all funded projects in the same category. Projects such as the Cam Crate should be put onto a wall of shame, to serve as lessons in how not to manage a project, and to help ensure that those considering funding projects can see examples of how it is possible to lose your money entirely, with no good faith effort on the part of the project creator. Being put on a wall of shame might also embarrass some project creators enough to motivate them to do something about it, whether refunding money, or finishing the project, or even explaining to backers why it failed and where the money went.

      Both Matthew and kickstarter robbed us. Kickstarter got a share of the money and did nothing. Gonna be 2 years soon. ¬¬

      Kickstarter should indeed consider adding more information to projects than simply successfully funded or unsuccessfully funded. Perhaps this could be done by adding information like "abandoned" or "failed to deliver promised results" or "delivered results but x months later than promised". There is potentially a lot of useful information in failed projects. How the project creator has handled things for example, with a failed project which was successfully funded, would be of interest particularly if that person were to launch another project. Similarly, if I were interested in launching a project of my own, reading the updates and comments from projects which were funded, but which didn't deliver all of what was promised, would be a very useful tool for planning, so as to try to avoid repeating mistakes that someone else made on a similar project.

      lIfe lesson: Kickstarter is a simple Venture capital portal. In VC as in life you win some you loose some. In this case we lost, so let's get over it and move on. I am sure that all of you are flawless in everything you do in life, and have never had anything go terribly wrong. For those people I pity your future because you are not prepared for what is ahead. For those of us who have taken a chance on an idea and have lost this is just one of those things. I can tell you that I sleep better knowing that life happens and I have the tools to deal with it. Learn these tools or face a very uncomfortable life. Kickstarter should take this page down and put it in the cyber trash, so there is no reminder of it. "LIfe is Pain" You know the rest.

      Every legit business states its contact information on the website. I am not sure how it is in the US but in many countries it is mandatory (by law) to provide full contact details. Furthermore, this is probably the only way to either reach or sue him (which I hope someone will).

      Oh, Matt. Enjoy what's coming your way.

      The power of the interwebs is really amazing; the breadth and fine-niche of its reach.

      You screwed with people who not only have chops, but know people with even better chops.
      And all have a very sardonic sense of whimsy.

      Spill and bump-proof? Oh, hardly. Life? Yeah, that;s a long time.

    35. Sprout%2011.small

      Creator freshsprout on April 24, 2013

      Why should he refund the money? Nothing is happening if he simply keeps the money for himself. He will probably realize that that this is a great way of making money. Let's start 4-5 fancy fake projects a year and you have your 100k+.

      I guess he learned his lesson. So next time he will use a fake name, fake photo and a fake facebook account. Then he can start a campaign for his fake product from his fake company. Takes one week to setup - and leaves you with a nice amount of $$$.

      As you see www.camcrate.com has already disappeared. When you read the comments you see that only 1-2% of the 370 backers are complaining. Especially when you live outside the US you can exactly do nothing. Kickstarter is not responding, Amazon and the CC company won’t refund the money and there is no way to sue him…

    36. Dwarven%20avatar17.small

      Creator razamataz on April 23, 2013

      Ryan,

      The example of the POP project that you posted is an excellent one. It demonstrates exactly how project creators should handle this sort of thing. Now if only Matthew Geyster will follow suit...

    37. Me.small

      Creator Ryan W. Maple on April 22, 2013

      A tale of two Kickstarters. Another project I backed (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/siminoff/pop-the-intersection-of-charging-and-design) recently discovered that they wouldn't be able to deliver in a reasonable amount of time, or within budget, so they sent a very well articulated, and thoughtful, backer-only message out, with a refund literally minutes later.

      I'm hesitant to share any information from that backer-only message, but suffice it to say we all got 100% refunds. I would have settled for a partial refund, subtracting the amount @kickstarter takes, but they did The Right Thing and refunded _all_ of our money.

      Matthew, you could learn a thing or two from better people. You truly are scum.

      Creator freshsprout on April 15, 2013

      Honestly, I am glad not to be in the position of Matt. With every new product launch he can be sure that it will be nuked with negative feedback. Then again - it's his own fault.

      I hope that enough reports go in to block him from starting any more projects. I also believe he should be blocked from backing any. Exile from the community and whatnot.

      Have you happened to notice his up-to-date commentary over on his other project, "Rustic Case for iPad and Kindle 3"?? AOL & MIA on one and Mr. Wonderful [ad nauseum] on the other. This guy's a terminal asswipe. How do you go ahead with anything else until you get this right? Instead, it's like it never happened, maaaan. *What a *douche*...

      @Chris don't take this as a representative of all Kickstarter projects. This is the only one with a true asshole who has screwed everybody out of money -- all the other project I backed have been wonderful experiences, with truly engaged people who actually care about the people who invested in their idea.

      @razamataz ditto -- it's a good reminder on how NOT to treat people.
