Have they changed the rules so that Kickstarter can't be used as a fundraiser?

You know, so someone can't, y'know, guilt people into giving them hundreds of thousands of dollars to make a youtube video and run.

I don't know but these new rules mean there are more hoops to jump through to qualify in the first place.

I think its a good idea that theres a minimum required amount of information that needs to be submitted and presented to potential backers, and they are making sure all risks involved are brought to their attention. The projects we've seen so far have treated it more like a pre-order than a financial investment.

But I think they need to either clarify or rethink the guidelines for things like software that don't have a physical form. Outside of game play trailers there aren't many ways to show progress. If I'm going to back something I want to see proof of how much consideration and work went into it, which means concept art or diagrams and other things that show though processes. I want to be convinced it will work and be successful.

That's always been a rule there.

Well, that's apparently something they don't enforce.
