Yesterday I caused a small firestorm with one of my "Kickstarter" posts. Well, actually, the post was on Sunday but the fires were started yesterday. Pretty much consumed what little meal and personal time I had at work last night and I'm back at work this morning with minimal sleep and a pile awaiting me at my desk.
Sooo... I'm not going to even touch the relevant G+ threads until I get home this afternoon.
I will say this:
If you put your hand out for money to fund your crowdfunded project, you've opened yourself up to attention, good or bad. You want money based on a promise. Many times, those promises are poorly explained or barely explained at all.
As I've stated elsewhere, I do not have an obligation to reach out to Kickstarter project creators behind the scenes to give my opinion on how to better present their project. They put it out there on the interwebs with an open palm.
If someone asks me to took at their project prior to release, I consider that to be confidential. I've looked, given feedback, critique and /or encouragement many times in the past. Live projects are fair game for public critique.
