With our first campaign we noticed that almost all of our Backers came to the project either in the first or the last few days of a campaign. While in the whole days in between that not much was going on with the campaign.
So we have made the decision to cut the campaign to a length that will skip that downtime between day 3 and 18 (assuming that most campaigns run for roughly 21 days)
