Hmm.

This might be promising. They weren't very descriptive on what they were making though. I had to find that in the FAQ.

Meh. I decided to fund The Monolyth instead.

Looks cool! I did too, as well as part two of A Voice in the Dark (or Dark Zoey).

^^^Let's hope more people start flocking to it. It's still a way off from it's goal and only has 13 days to go.


...Also, woo! Hinges made it to it's goal!

The Monolyth didn't make it to goal. Apparently he's still going to try and do the project, but in black and white, and possibly in a different way to make it cheaper.

Besides ttallan's IndieGoGo thing, I'm also funding World of Fiction now.

...From all the post from me in here, I'm beginning to think I'm the main one what likes throwing money at people. Razz

I'm questioning whether the World of Fiction story will get funded Sad but, I'm pretty sure the Guilded Age one will get there. I'm funding them too and I would just like to say BEST KICKSTARTER VIDEO EVER!

Super-excited to preorder Vattu! Also Ava's Demon (the Kickstarter for which has already raised over 130k, ten times its original goal, holy crap ._. )

And, o'course, Galaxion.

(As a side-note, I am not sure how representative I am of the crowdfund-backing public, but.... I rarely ever actually watch the videos ._. In fact I don't think I've watched any of the videos for the projects I've backed... Though I was usually already familiar with the work in question. Am I alone in that, though...? Are the videos actually super important/interesting and I am missing out by not watching them?)

So kickstarter is going to start accepting canadian projects later this year.

Thoughts?

Yay!

I'm still nowhere close to ready to start on a print version (ugghhh why didn't I know all the things I know now when I was starting the comic five years ago.... /dumb questions that answer themselves), but I'm pretty sure I'll be using crowdfunding when I do.

Heh. I was curious whether you'd be 'argh' or 'who cares? indiegogo works for me.'

I'm curious if they'll ever expand to europe. I hope to translate my comics to german once I get to that point. It would be nice to have a higher European count on Kickstarter before that happens.

I'm not sure flexible funding is necessarily a bonus. If I only get twenty people pledging for my book, I don't want to have to go through with printing a tiny, tiny run that'll end up losing money. I do wonder if it takes a certain urgency out of the campaign, too…

edit. Also that GeekMom article is wrong; it claims that stretch goals are something built into the system at Kickstarter, that're a pain in the butt to implement on other funding platforms. Stretch goals are implemented by nothing more than editing your project description to promise stretch goals, and following through on them if you get the funds.

That article is also loosing me on their third advantage. Having an approval process means that things like the pickup artist guide that kickstarter apologized for won't be found on their site any more. And their list of prohibited perks? This is a problem? Not being able to offer loans, buy real estate, give away alcohol, drugs, weapons, etc?

Well, I think with Indiegogo you do have a choice what kind of campaign you use (ie you could also do something similar to Kickstarter, where no money is received until the end). If you're relying on the campaign to raise ALL the capital for the printing then you would probably want to go with a different funding option; flexible funding is mainly intended for projects which already have some pre-existing capital to work with (grants, for insstance), which could theoretically go ahead anyway even if they don't hit the target-- though ideally they'd get close.

I do agree that I kind of like the idea of the approval process, although now that you have brought in the example of the 'seduction guide', it doesn't seem as though Kickstarter has been using it to filter projects <_< Maybe they'll be more careful in future? I haven't heard about any similar kerfuffles on indiegogo, though maybe they just don't get as much press...
