I mean I personally want to meet someone who loves Con Air as much as I do but a dating site is a bit much.

The Barbarossa card game kickstarter was kind of the turning point for me, honestly.

LOL.....nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Some of the early Kickstarter anime projects were great. Glad I got the opportunity to contribute and get "stuff". However, as more of these projects were vetted it became obvious to me that my wallet couldn't possibly afford to support converting everyone's dream into a physical absolute.

Kickstarter is a platform for people to try and get you to give money to them. It is up to the person thinking about donating to a project to use some tiny bit of common sense to decide if they actually believe the project is going to happen or if it's really worth it.

Some people scam, some people lie, some people change their minds, etc. Most project creators are legitimately trying to do what they say they want to do but some of them are dumb. They just don't realize what it's really going to take.

Do your own due diligence and don't throw your money down a rat hole.

I've pledged for multiple Kickstarters and so far the experience has been a good one. You just have to choose wisely.

I laughed my head off when I heard that kickstarter was an actual thing. Strangers with too much money sending it to people they don't know to create stupid projects. Ah, the human race...

Kind of an odd perspective considering Kickstarter isn't that different from investments, angel funding, and a dozen other ways in which people try to help each other achieve their ambitions.

Have you actually looked on the site? There are some truly stupid projects but their are also many intelligent and creative ones.

It's not really the same as actual investments though because at the end of the day, it's weirdo's asking other weirdos for money.

I have indeed looked at the website. It was rather hard to navigate,but the things I did see didn't seem legit.

the name is clever and i snorted, but rly it's pointless XD

someone who needs heart surgery should make a kickstarter called "kickstart my heart"

I reckon that project will break a million, easy...

Seriously though, I've never given a penny to any kickstarter project, and I highly doubt I ever will.
