    It was not clear that the amount being raised was not the entire amount needed to complete the project (this was a Kickstarter Rule as pointed out by Massively). 

    KS does not have any such rule, no matter how many times you gonna repeat that nonsene.

    That’s the whole fucking problem. There are no rules worth a shit.

     Zero Accountability

    Kickstarter just gets their 5% regardless. They don’t give a shit how these projects are managed and they sure ain’t going to waste any of that hard earned 5% (sarcasm) in  policing their system.

    Neither of them implies that such rule exists, that is just your own nonsensical plug.

    They do not differentiate because it is not possible. They only break the KS rule if they are dishonest. So if they left information out due to simply incompetence, which you claim, they did not break a KS rule.

    You right however, it is there for all to see.
    How do you draw that conclusion from this rule:
    The funding goal is the amount of money that a creator needs to complete their project

    It says nothing about only breaking it if you are dishonest.   So please show me where it gives an exception for incompetence.  Or says you have to break the rules intentionally. 
     
    Then why did you highlight "honest and clearly" if it is not relevant? Convenient at the time to imply dishonesty, but not so much now?

    Because clearly when the topic came up Caspian was very open that they did need more cash beyond the kickstarter. My impression was always that the funding goal was for a prototype with which to get further funding.

    Your claim is that they set out to deliberately mislead people. That claim is false.

    Resorting to snippets again are we. For one who is so against regulation you sure like to try and regulate conversation.

    There's no doubt in my mind whatsoever that SBS were deliberately dishonest in their KS proposal.

    Jeromy Walsh knew that saying the KS funding total was only meant to build a "demo for investors" would hugely dampen the enthusiasm of potential backers, so that fact was conveniently omitted...

    Sure, there may have been hardcore fans that were already aware of that fact, seeing as they were active on the CoE forums long before the KS arrived, but there would have been many others who would not have known that "hidden detail". New arrivals would have taken the KS info at face value, which is quite acceptable, seeing as that funding proposal should contain all pertinent facts regarding what is being funded.

    Would it have been better if the summary said it was a for a prototype in those exact words? I agree. Still doesn't prove dishonesty. The problem here is once again that you cannot take the KS info at face value. You have to do due diligence.

    No, all you have is speculation. Driven by your dislike of Caspian because he was rude to you. Which he shouldn't have been. But ultimately there are 3-0-0+ threads on this game, a significant portion started by yourself, for the sole purpose of internet revenge. It is both impressive and sad.

    The information required to do a true due diligence isn't required to be provided to potential backers.

    Wheres the rule that says all projects must set a funding goal that covers their whole project? 

    I can't find that in their rules section.

    They have revamped the site multiple times.  It used to be displayed in bullet point format. If you ooom through these forums there probably is a screenshot.  But you can see from the Massively article that it existed and that Caspien did not dispute it.

    You can also find it listed here but no longer in bullet point format.

    Specifically it states "The funding goal is the amount of money that a creator needs to complete their project."

    Oh, and just in case, 

    com·plete
    adjective
    1. having all the necessary or appropriate parts. 
    2. having all parts or elements; lacking nothing; whole; entire; full:

    verb
    1. finish making or doing. 
    2. make (something) whole or perfect.

    It does not say what you think it says...

    One would need to be seriously mentally deficient to think it means anything else but money needed to complete the subject of KS campaign, hence why the sentence starts with FUNDING GOAL - an amount you intent to collect via KS campaign.

    It literally says:

     "The funding goal is the amount of money that a creator needs to complete their project."

    Not the Kickstarter campaign. The project.  Please go back to silently LOLing everyone.  The more you post the worse it gets.

    ...project is what you start on KS and what backers pledge towards and KS rules always refer to "project" as such.


    "How do I start a project?

    Anyone that meets our creator requirements is eligible to launch a project on Kickstarter. 

    Just head to our start page to begin building your project. You can find tips on structuring and running your project in our Resources Compendium, and refer to our rules to make sure your project idea is a good fit. Meanwhile, feel free to save your project as a draft and return to finish it up or submit it for review at a later date."

    ....

    "Everything on Kickstarter must be a project with a clear goal, like making an album, a book, or a work of art. A project will eventually be completed, and something will be produced by it.

    Kickstarter is not a store, backers pledge to projects to help them come to life and support a creative process. To thank their backers for their support, project creators offer unique rewards that speak to the spirit of what they're hoping to create."
