    So now we've hit $120k will the rate of donation tail off a bit, or are we now going to get a flood of people wanting NcFtPB reprinted putting their donations in? Tempted to increase my donation myself...$10 seemed fine when we were going for $57k, but now we're more than double that!

    Well I questioned a friend for still having their Christmas tree up last week, then it occurred to me I was still using my Christmas avatar. Didn't want to be a hypocrite.

    Probably both. That said the the idea of an "every book do far" pledge reward might keep things going, as might more mystery prizes. Because people just can't resist the lure of the mystery box.

    Dammit! I screwed up... I did my pledge, but forgot to add in the 10$ for international shipping. How would I best go about correcting that?

    There is a "Manage Pledge" button which allows you to change how much you're pledging.

    We just crushed the most successful Kickstarter comic of the year 2011 in amount pledged (Womanthology : $109,301 at 437% funded). The most % funded was Kingdom of Loathing at 683% funded (but that was $30,757 of $4,500 Goal).

    http://www.comicsalliance.com/2011/1...graphic-chart/

    We are at 213% funded last time I looked. Wooo! Go us, Go Rich, Go OOTS!

    In the 4 hours or so since I posted my last comment, it's gone up another $3k. At that rate, we'll be up to the $140k level by this time tomorrow...

    This pledge drives popularity is insane. I will be away from a computer for the next ten days. I wonder how high it will go before I get back. $200k, $300k, more??? If it exceeds $300,000 that might be enough to not only reprint all the OOP books but hopefully fund the printing of book 5 before The Giant is even ready to release it yet. I hope there are not as many problems this time getting the book ready. Rich has always put out a First-Class product, but that means intense scrutiny at all stages of the printing, and if mistakes are made (color shift, layout, etc...) then Rich has to go over the whole thing again, and we have to wait aaaaaarrrrgghh!
    On a side note, I wonder how many more incentives I will miss out on while I am away.

    I hope we get to the no cure for the paladin blues stage, and that it's tacked on as a fifty dollars or under prize (Though i guess Iíll need to increase my pledge by a few bucks for shipping)

    quoted for truth. Although I do hope for an incentive for those who already preordered every book the moment it was announced and so have a full set in mint condition.

    But I'm happy for the magnets. I wish I could get some past years ornaments, that might be something nice.

    Any speculation on who bought the grand prize? I suspect (or hope) it was Notch, of Minecraft legend. My evidence is circumstantial:

    Often contributes large sums of money to Humble Indie Bundles.

    and

    In game contents suggests he is a fan of OOTS (a splash line saying Haley loves Elan)

    I think you should not speculate on who posted/pledged what. If the person wants to be known, he or she will announce it in some way. If the person does not want that, it is not your place to speculate. Also, notch is possibly not the only geek with money in the world.

    I broke down and increased my pledge to get the other books as well. It looks like my food budget just went out the window for next month but at least with my job thats not a major issue. On the plus side this plus a couple of other pledges in the last 10 minutes have pushed us over $125,000.

    You said all of those and you forgot to say the donator was Draketooth or Haley's celestial mother? For shame.

    To answer the curtailed question - yes, donating to this drive is more than just "morally justified" - it's a moral imperative!

    It would take longer than that. Truly, the crazy theories are evolving faster than anyone can follow. By the time he types them all out, a new set has taken their place. Or, if you insist the average human can still type faster than the rate at which new theories are spawned, we'll just consider the Achilles and tortoise paradox and leave it at that.

    I think for $1 million we should be able to get OoTS done as a live action show.

    Using the actors from Firefly.

    We might have to draft a few more male characters though, but a suitably tanned Nathan Fillion would be perfect as Roy and Morena Baccarin as Sabine, yes please!

    Personally, my silly theory is, when it reaches $1,000,000, Mr. Burlew will upload a 10-second video of himself saying thanks, we're all crazy, and he loves us all.

    ... or maybe it'll just be audio and the video won't be until it reaches $2,000,000.

    Please. You could just cast Nathan Fillion in every role and you know we'd all watch it. If you're casting other actors, you're trying too hard.

    For those that still care about the numbers

    30 hours to raise $57,750
    48 hours to raise $91,000
    72 hours to raise $127,000

    with all the big ticket items gone in that first 48 hour period,
    we are left with the unfrilled donations so then we can look at things more closely without any of the initial noise.

    In the last 24 hours, $36,000 was raised.
    This averages out perfectly to $1500 an hour which is what we were seeing yesterday afternoon. It's amazing that there has been no significant decrease in donations since then, so we know we have not reached the saturation point.

    I'll be curious to see if this continues to stay stable, or if Rich somehow manages to increase the average donations with the next update.

    Again . . . still . . . wow.

    *forcing me to post stats*
    *shakes fist at WampaX*

    I was actually wondering about this, so I checked at 1:30am PST last night and 9:30am PST this morning. It came in just a shade under $7000. Let's just call it $875 an hour for that period.

    And while I wasn't keeping exact track, I noticed the slowdown started around 9-10pm PST last night (it had been going at insane clip for much of the day).

    Whether that is because of the time of day, or the "initial rush" of OtOoPCs orders having already cleared, I don't know. Be interesting to see the "hourly rate" right now before the NCftPB pledge points get introduced.
