    Kickstarter is being used as a cynical pre-order (and pre-pay) system by serial product developers. It is now a substitute for starting a business and I worry about the ongoing support for items sold in this way.

      Avoid Kickstarter. I invested in a project. The Creator has failed to communicate since early August, now it is almost November and the project is 4 months late. Kickstarter basically takes the investors money and absolves itself of any and all responsibility to ensure the creator talks to their investors let deliver on their promise. The project I backed has over 1200 comments – the vast majority are negative along the lines of “at least talk to us” or “where is my xxx”, a few are “I have received it but it does not work”.I have rattled Kickstarters cage a few times asking them to do something – they steadfastly refuse and just say read our Terms and Conditions.In my opinion it is tantamount to fraud.They take our money and run.To make matters worse the Creator is seeking funding on another project. Despite their failures on the other one Kickstarter has allowed it.HOW CAN THAT BE RIGHT.
