That's right, in a last minute call, we deleted our early bird pledges. We were never 100% convinced of the idea of having early bird pledges with a special price. In fact, early bird pledges aren't any good for the community as a whole, but for a small group of lucky ones only. In our minds, early bird pledges (or the fact that most of all backers won't get one) feel like being late to a party while all other guests were having fun the whole night through.
The last backer is as important to us as the first one, so nobody should be handicapped only by coming later than "day one". Every backer will get the same reward for the same amount of money. In the last instance, we are all investigators fighting evil, aren't we?
