That is the magic of Kickstarter - there are no investors, just people interested in financially helping an concept to become reality.
There is  a requirement for a pledge to be rewarded, but the definition of reward is very broad.

My point: to generate large enough sums I think there would have to be something more than a "token" reward.

No so, having looked at other successful software based kickstarter projects - it is quite feasible to have recognition based rewards.
People are willing make small contributions just because of the 'WOW I helped make that happen' factor.
Also we are not talking about big sums here wink

We can easily add a "Medal" or something underneath a user name indicating they contributed!

It would only be a reward for forum members, but I've seen other forums use that type of graphic for various things, so it's one of many "intangible" rewards that could be offered.

Hard coding a list of names of contributors in a splash screen or elsewhere in MB3D is another idea, but if it's open source that may not work.

But the point is that intangible rewards can be done and there are many options for them.

I am pondering about the next steps to take.
With other pulls on my time - it will be a while.
However, we have to at least Windows 12 before anything needs to be done.

That's easy!

The next steps should be - when you are ready   afro

You only get one unveiling of a new project.  Make it the best you can, even if it takes longer than you'd prefer.

I also had the kickstarter idea some days ago, so it must be a good idea  tongue stuck out  Azn
Quite the same interface but a clean code as base should be the first target to keep that project alive. Result should be open source.
When we mastered this step there will be improvements. Maybe we can use the donation amount as a kind of voting score. The people that donate the most can give most point for a new feature, so they will reach "their" goal faster.
But also without that I would donate something (>50Ç) just to keep that wonderful program alive and not frozen.
So Bryan, please go on and start the thing  thank you post swing
