    I don't know where kicktraq is getting its daily numbers from but they dont seem to be an accurate reflection of actual backers and pledges.  For instance http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/13861848/camelot-unchained/#chart-daily

    We are in day 8, we are infact exactly 5 hours into day 8 (at the time of writing).  In the last 5 hours the project has raised $8,652 ($983,720.26 - $975,067.94) yet kicktraq would have us believe its more like $16,422

     

    The KS project is just hovering under the amount needed to fund level atm, so with an expected big spike at the end we should probably be ok if it keeps ticking over as it has been doing for past few days.

    When we hit 1 million they will bring out some stretch goals. I thought it would be today but now I have my doubts. If I had it I'd by an Inn, no I'd by ALL the inns!

    It's at 990k and still have more than 6 hours (central time, more time on the pacific coast) to reach $1 million. I think it'll reach.

    I'm more worried about it reaching the needed $44,000/day to reach $2 million overall. That's a tall order.

    Keep in mind there will be a burst at the end as it gets to the last couple of days. Even if it was constantly $5,000 short of that $45,000 daily requirment, if there is a $100,000+ day at the end it will more than make up for it.

    A lot of people wait to the last minute to see if they should even bother, and if its close they say why not and help it out. Plus in the last few days it pops up a lot more as an "Ending Soon!" kind of thing, so people who don't even know about the game might catch wind of it in the final stretch.

    Ding, $1 million. Half way there....as the poster said above me, let's keep close to $40,000 a day so we can have some stretch goals and maybe fund $500,000 or $1 million over so we can have some sweet additions :D

    Huge psychological milestone!  Three weeks left to go!  You're right, if we can keep around $40k per day, the final surge will push us into some nice stretch goals!  Keep up the great work everyone, it is fun to be part of this great and passionate community.  Lovers and haters, we couldn't do it without you!

    That took longer than I would have liked, but I still feel very good about the Kickstarter's chances of funding. Onward to the next million....

    broke a million you know what that means???! HAWAIIAN SHIRT TIME image

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    If we keep funding at about 40k ish per day we will be short by about 84,000 now addmittedly thats not to much to worry about especiall on the last 2 days of funding. Yesterday was a good day, most likely some were holding out to push over the 1million mark. We need to keep having good days so that we can easily fund 2mil and then reach for stretch goals.

    That's true, but if it can keep going at close to the current rate then it is very likely people who already donated in the first few days will increase their donations at the very end and push it to $2 million. For instance check out what happened on the last day for Pathfinder Online:


    http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/1675907842/pathfinder-online-a-fantasy-sandbox-mmo/#chart-daily

    Wow, I had no idea PO cut it that close.  Good job on that community for pushing it over the finish line!

    Looking at the PO chart again, it appears a whole lot of new people donated on the last day too. I guess they were waiting around hoping for somebody else to fund the game but when forced to choose between no game and ponying up a few bucks, they opened their wallets.

     

    Or, they funded it themselves - it's not like the company is a 16 year old kid in his basement with $100 to his name.  They have money.

    It'll be funded, no question, even if CSE/Mark Jacobs has to pick up the tab on the difference to ensure it gets funded.  Even doing so, he'd be in the black from the KS.

    Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.

    I don't think that's what happened in PO or will happen in CU, but if it does, I wouldn't care. It would just mean Mark thinks he got enough backers to make the game worth creating and he was willing to put in a bit more money than he originally said. Works for me.

    You can't pledge toward you own project on kickstarter.  I guess you could find ways but it isn't allowed.

    It's stickied so it doesn't get knocked down to page 2 during the day as all the trolls post all their "Why I hate CU and its web page" posts. They don't want backers creating new progress threads later in the day because they don't see the official thread on the first page. Hence stickied.
