What's YOUR take on successful Kickstarters failing to deliver?
Kinda confirms my worst suspicions/fears about crowd-funding.0%
It doesn't really discourage me, there's always the possibility a project won't work out0%
I think projects need to start formulating a plan for what happens if the project folds0%
