This forum was established as a discussion point for all things Trainz-Kickstarter-ish.
We know that if you are reading this post, you have already heard about Kickstarter. We also know that up to half the people who are reading this post, have most likely not made a pledge to the project (as yet). With 1,000 backers so far, and another 1,000 or so needed in the next 3 weeks, we still have a challenge on our hands to meet the target.
There are a number of reasons as to why people haven't pledged, and we don't expect that everyone will pledge, but that's the whole idea behind this post - to uncover those issues and identify if there are any uncertainties, solutions or unsolvable reasons.
One known reason is the credit card policy used by Kickstarter. We are preparing a Paypal option which will operate outside the Kickstarter process but still offer many of the same rewards, to solve this issue.
Another reason is people's personal financial position, although a $5 pledge should be within reach of most (assuming they have a credit card) - 100 people x $5 could be the difference in meeting the goal or not.
We then start to get into potentially deeper issues and rather than put words into people's mouths, we'd love to hear what's on your mind. If you haven't pledged as yet, let us know if you're planning to at some point, or perhaps you have decided that there is no way you will pledge. Whatever the reasons, we'd love to hear from you.
