DO NOT FEAR - DOG IS HERE

Posted by American McGee (Creator)

Hey everyone. American here with a message from Lulu. She heard some of you voicing concerns about the campaign goal. I think her message is meant to say we're still on track for a successful end of campaign. Keep in mind that with the "ending surge" most campaigns experience we should expect to see a decent finish. Your help in getting out the word is still critical. Without further delay, here's Lulu: 

HELLO HUMANS. DOG IS HERE. DO NOT FEAR END IS NEAR. DOG SNIFF END. SNIFF END IN THE WIND. TO CATCH THE END, GROWL AND BARK. BARK,WOOF, BARK! WE CATCH A HAPPY END. BARK!

Note from American: I translated that "BARK, WOOF, BARK" part - it appears she's saying you should tweet this: 

Take Alice to Otherlands, she's nearly there. @AliceOtherlands, #Kickstarter kck.st/16F4yvT

From Shanghai with Lulu on my keyboard, 

 -American

      Hey @All... would just like to ask that you not get too obsessed with Kicktraq. I think we're going to be OK here. Final days will bring a surge, as will end of month (people waiting for paychecks, even though they really don't have to).

      Also, please speculating on how PayPal might or might not impact this campaign. I can see the numbers. There are NOT enough PayPal backers to make a difference. Trust me. This campaign will do fine with KS backers alone.

      The thing is, instead of stressing over these details, we should all get out and raise awareness! Tweet, blog, etc, etc.

      The passion here is great. I just hope you guys can focus on the positive and not worry so much about these minor things that have little impact on our project. YOU can have an impact by helping spread the word. That's the most important thing! :)

      Proyects usually take 2 months on KS. Can't they just extend the time?

      Take life with a grain of salt! The numbers are still low and should not be ignored. Thus, reporting them. This project has a long way to go with less than 6 days left.

      Exactly. So take Kicktraq trends and projections with a grain of salt.

      That's because there isn't always a surge. You can't mathematically calculate a maybe. It's strictly trending numbers.

    6. Becky, Oracle of Valoria on

      Kicktraq is just a trending application. I love using it, but it is notorious for dismal projections during the mid project slump period, and also has difficulty in correctly incorporating the project ending surges.

      92% of goal? O.O already increased my pledge, I do not know what to do to help :(

      @Maria - That's exactly what a few of us warned American about. The Paypal page should have waited until later. I hope he proves us wrong!

      @Anon - Cheshire was correct. Looks like you haven't "learnt" everything yet. You can start with a dictionary and the word trending.

      On that note, it's gone up a %!

      @Maria - no, KS won't say that - that breaks their whole model. They get a % off the funds here and they are putting up their service - they don't (nor really should they) count Paypal donations towards the total. I wish Kickstarter would step up and offer Paypal, but clearly have some exclusive deal with Amazon.

      So my question is: What if we don't reach the KS goal but we surpasses it together with PayPal, can't KS then say the project has been successfully funded?

    11. Russell Deitch on

      @anon, PayPal is for those who don't have Amazon. It doesn't count towards the initial KS funding goal (but may be used towards stretch goals).

      I don't know where Justin learnt math, but I think he's a few buttons short of a calculator.

    13. r00k on

      I switched from paypal to amazon.
      I think paypal confuses kickstarter.

      Lulu - a cute name for a cute dog (even though I have an absolute fear of boxer type dogs ever since my neighbours dog bit me three times! He just happened to absolutely despise children, despite what the breeder had said). And I really hope that people are just waiting for the pay check and then the counter will soar :)

    15. Cheshire Cat Asylum Krazie OotG on

      Hopefully you are preparing something big to help boost an end surge, cause quite frankly this is a lame update!

      And don't get me wrong Lulu IS adorable :)

      Let's hope many people can put in some extra chips from their next paycheck!

      Yikes! Now it's at 91% :(

      I hope you don't have your whole bet on that ending surge. Let's be real here...you're trending has slowly gone down during the entire project. It's now at 97% We gotta pick up the pace!!!!

    18. Kaze Trinidad on

      YAY! I agree with Becky! One payday I can't wait to up my pledge!

    19. Becky, Oracle of Valoria on

      LOL. Well if Dog isn't worried, than neither shall I be! After all, everybody knows she has her paw on the pulse of this whole KS Alice shebang.

      Dog is watching us.
