Why should a company need proof that a person is screwing around? "I don't want that person in my project" should be enough. (Note that I'm not proposing a site-wide ban, just a company saying that a person is not going to ever be a customer of theirs again.)

 

I understand what you mean.

However, if someone really pulls these kinds of pranks, I wouldn't want said person to be able to do that to others.

Maybe a sort of feedback system, and with X negative points you're out?

A company should be able to ban somebody for whatever reason it wants to. Perhaps the person has been a terrible customer of the regular business and even if they've never been a problem on Kickstarter, they don't want to deal with them. Or perhaps a person has a grudge against a single company on Kickstarter but is a fine customer for every other project they join. There are problems that arise from banning someone from the platform that don't arise to anything like the same extent if you allow companies to ban them unilaterally from dealing with that company.

 

And yes, there can be real problems with skeevy companies being called out to other potential customers if companies can ban comments about their project by banning people. There are other solutions to this than preventing companies from choosing their business relationships or the lack thereof.

A banned person could go on to fartbook and such and start a negative campaign against a company.

 

Which is something that I think they should be able to do, so long as they stay within the bounds of libel and commercial libel law.

 

The problem I see is that a bad actor company can be called out more easily in the comments of its own project than by setting up a page somewhere else. This is balanced, to my mind, by the fact that a bad actor "customer" can defame a company more effectively in its own comment section, though, so I make that a wash.

 

As always, caveat emptor.

How long you going to be?

 

Quick, everyone pledge while tidtil isn't looking so there is more stuff to go back in for!

Made it back safe-ish!

Upped to 500, haven't selected more than 300 worth of stuff in the PM. I think I'm just overwhelmed by the choices, so I'll wait till I have seen everything.

 

Also: mean!

I see people continually mentioning the pledge manager.  How can I get to it, is there a link somewhere I missed?

 Below list of unlocked and locked items in the KS.

Go to the main Kickstarter page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1513061270/reaper-miniatures-bones-4-mr-bones-epic-adventure

 

Then as Cyradis says, just scroll all the way down past the maps and all the goal photos.  It's very near the bottom of the page.  It's a big green button.

 

Edit:  Dang it, too late!  Ninja's by Cyradis and Brennor! :wacko::ph34r:

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
