Three contact attempts (once through the campaign page and twice through direct email) without a response. Now whenever Indegogo sends me a questionnaire, I give the whole service model a thumbs down. (And, yes, gregory. I know.)

I backed Robert Place's campaign because it was from a known quantity with a reputation to maintain. While there are a number of known quantities involved with this deck, I think I'll be waiting until closer to the end of the campaign to fund it if it looks like it's going to make it.

Yes Rodney. I know too. I have backed this one because at least the artists are so stellar I think it should be OK. I have never actually been bitten by one, as I hate the model so much I - but I avoid indiegogo as a rule, on principle. I have backed exactly one other - created by a member here - which is apparently mailing as we speak. (As I recall she actually said she wished she had gone kickstarter !) Kickstarter is much better managed - and even there we all know about that one that fell over badly.

And I tell them what a crap model it is, too - that they should only allow fixed funding with payment at the end if it makes the goal. But - as they don't listen, I don't go there. This one, however - well... there are people I know opersonally in that list of artists !

reall - postage is only included in the US. Be careful ! Just it never asked me for more than the pledge cost ! So I didn't exactly volunteer.
