      @SHR Really? If you really bellieved for more than two seconds this was a phising attack, you should't be pledging in KS "just for fun" projects. This was by far the best April Fools prank I've seen in years :D Almost die from a heart attack before realizing the truth

      When you "hover" over the link it looks like https://p.ayments.amazon.com which would be an excellent way to create a fake/phishing address.

      Guess I don't take possible identity theft as funny...

      This project has an unintended benefit. It provides a countdown to 1st April. I'm hoping that this means I'm less likely to be caught out. I've a small prank lined up for my boss. I'm going to show him that NVidia Face demo and tell him that Nvida released it on the 1st April as a joke, and that it's actually live actor.

      Hi James, good question with an easy answer: Kickstarter allows a maximum pledge amount of $10,000. That's why we chose that number for our highest pledge level of Jedi Training Camp on Dagobah. To get to the funding goal, there would need to be an additional 1041 backers all pledging at the maximum $10K amount to reach the goal. And no, neither we nor Kickstarter would allow that goal to be reached. The plug would be pulled if it got even close!

      Creator James Floyd Kelly on March 26, 2013

      Just a quick question -- would it be possible for some prankster to post a $11M pledge minutes before the deadline, therefore forcing charges to be made? Is there a limit to pledge amounts? Might this not be a good time for those $5000 and $10000 backers to start considering managing their pledges to a lesser amount... just in case?

      Come on people how have we stalled out at just over $500k? This is the fate of a galaxy far, far away we're talking about. We should at least be able to reach $1mil.

      @ Simon and Erin. Yeah cool. I guess midi-chlorians is the difference between being Jedi Bantha fodder or a Jedi Master like Windu or Yoda. Good luck and may the 'luck' be with you!

    35. Sk_ed_profile_pic.small

      Creator Simon Kwan on February 13, 2013

      @ Erin Hartwell, we're with you on that whole midi-chlorians fiasco. I mean, seriously, the Force is all around us and flows through all living things. We don't need some microscopic thingimawhatsits inside us to know the Force is with us. While the swamps of Dagobah are lovely, in a swampy kind of way. Yoda's kind of a drill sergeant though, so I'm not sure how much time you'll get to sketch and take photos. Oh, and he's a bit testy about people messing about with his recipes. Teach you, he may. Change the ingredients, you must not.

      @ Glen: The Force will be with us, even if we don't have midi-chlorians. Besides, even if the whole Jedi training doesn't go well, I still get to enjoy a pristine swamp wilderness. I plan to do some sketching and wildlife photography while on Dagobah, time permitting. And I know Yoda will just have some fantastic recipes to share! ;)

      I would hope that any pilot would be willing to sacrifice themselves to save the lives of countless billions. Of course I would do it myself, but my aim is terrible. I've never managed to hit a womp rat in my life.

      Creator Simon Kwan on February 12, 2013

      @Your average joe shmoe, we'll need the extra speed when we're escaping from the blast radius of the exploding Death Star. I'm sure our pilots want as much performance as possible!

      Creator Your average joe shmoe on February 12, 2013

      I'm glad to see that there are some people out there with the backbone to stand against the Evil Empire. One small point though, purely to cut costs... Is there any need to make the fighter variable geometry? The new Death Star shall be built fairly locally. There's no need for the extra speed from closing the wing.

      I so wanted to train with you as a Jedi. But bottled making the phantom payment on Amazon when $10k popped up on my radar. Guess I'm ever going to be Jedi material :( On the plus side - I get to watch as some of you wanna=be Jedis try duelling with Sith Lords without so much as a snifter of midi-chlorian juice in you. I'd pay lots to watch that on YouTube! Eeeooow ZZap pitzzz ARGHHhh! Golden.
