    $1,250,166.00 / $106,799.87 ≈ 11.7056

    Is how Rich got the number, I reckon.

    In actuality, it should be:

    $106.799.87 / $1,250,166 ≈ .08543 ≈ 8.543%

    Which is better than he was planning for.

    ETA::: As I scan the comment thread of the update, this has already been brought to Rich's attention. And Rich has already acknowledged his little math boo boo.

    Hmmm... I'd be shocked about the small number of bounces... except for one little fact...

    We lot really wanted the swag badly. And, would jump through any number of voice-mail or paper hoops to get cards cleaned and cleared to a brilliant shine.

    My heart goes out to those whose hoops turned out to be wreathed in Tiamat's five flavours of fire.

    Its nice that Rich is rolling right along with the work. I am not surprised however that it will still take awhile for the money to hit his bank account as the government put a hold on anything that over 10k.

    Just saw update #30, and I feel I must express my EXTREME DISPLEASURE with the Workometer.

    ...oh, no, not at all about the level of progress - that is going along just fine...

    No, the problem is that for 28 updates, the OOTS characters were deeply involved in the progress graphs. And now, they are MISSING!

    Please, they deserve to be part of the Workometer updates, too!

    I'd say it is time for Team Evil to have a moment on the KS updates, or at least the demon roaches. It is just amazing how well this drive did in dollars raised, backers, and now successfull payments. I would be interested if Kickstarter keeps records of that, and if so is this another record that OotS can claim.

    I will probably not receive my survey until next week by which time I may not have internet access. Not too worried though. Each time I upgraded the pledge I messaged Rich through KS and got confirmation. At the most recent upgrade we were still a few hours away from breaking the line for the patch and Rich went ahead and confirmed that my order would have it as there was not much doubt by then. Of course that was still days before we broke KickStarter. I still think that is one of the coolest things about the drive.

    Oh, that would be perfect! Undoubtedly, there will be some sort of issues/delays with the printers (don't they always?) - and Team Evil could be there to ... take the blame?

    I second the demand for team evil in the workometer.

    Maybe Rich could make a column in the workometer called "Integrating Team Evil in the Workometer". That would be cool

    Seriously, I think there is enough work to be done and Rich is doing great!

    Kind of what I was thinking. ex: MitD mistaking some of the progress bars for Mallomars, if something causes a holdup.

    Do you know that there's a thing called "buyer's remorse"?
    I have the exact opposite:
    Although I don't need anything besides my (signed, woo!) copy of WaXP, I'm kicking myself for not buying a little bit more....adding an extra patch, another magnet, an art print....or donating a few more dollars extra to Rich, just because he deserves it.
    So, I've now lived through mirth (all the fun of updates and comments), elation (over how well "we" did), sorrow (seeing the drive end), withdrawal ("F5, F5, F5...why doesn't those numbers go up!?") and now remorse
    I guess there's just acceptance left: thanks for all the laughs guys and well done Rich, as I said, you deserve it

    I think you may be one of the few who have that condition. I don't know as many of us have buyer's remorse...but I know that I started out with the game/xpac/mini and then added on a book, an art print and a patch. But I'm not having buyers remorse because adding the rest makes me happy...I must admit that I'm not sure what I will do with the patch...but had to have one because I PARTICIPATED!!

    Question Re: The Post-Kickstarter Discussion Thread: Bask in the Afterglow

    I have a problem with responding to the Kickstarter survey. The problem is that I'm moving at the end of March, and I don't have a new address secured yet. If I put my current address down as a placeholder, will I be able to change it before the rewards ship out? Or should I delay filling out the survey until I have a new address in place? Or perhaps try to contact the Giant with my situation? Any advice would be appreciated.

    I wouldn't suggest delaying, if your survey isn't in when they make the order you get put to the back of the queue.

    Does your country's postal service have a redirect service? You may have to pay to use it, but I'd suggest it was a good idea just in general when moving.

    Quote from Rich over on the Kickstarter comments thread:

    Please don't anyone put a note saying that their address *might* change at some future point. I won't have the time to track down and ask everyone whether it did or not. Simply email me when it *does* change.

    End of quote

    So I would say put your current address and then when you get a new one email it to Rich.

    Okay, so I'm using best friend's address. Should I put my name or his in the survey? Or should I put both, and a c/o (or the German equivalent p. Adr. (= "per address")) in front of his name?

    I would go with the c/o, so your best friend knows at once that THIS is the package that's for you.

    Done and done. Surveys #2 and #3 are submitted

    And now I have to get myself to forget all about it so that I'm pleasantly surprised when he calls after the packages arrive

    Good luck with that, Honigmuffin. I bet, however, that part of your brain will be carefully ticking off the days, despite your best intentions.

    Oh, and I'm glad you went with the c/o. It's the best way.

    Yeah, my thoughts about it went something like this: Huh, if I put my name, his postman will be confused because I don't live there. But if I put his name, it doesn't match with my credit card info and the mail address matched to my Kickstarter accounts. If only I could put both names… oh waaait a second, that's exactly what c/o is for. Yay! \o/

    I know it wouldn't have made much sense but I think its unfortunate that there was that big old line graph for all that time and the linear guild was nowhere to be found.
    I like being asked difficult and interesting questions, even though sometimes the only answer is "I wish I knew".

    If you go to the Kickstarter Drive Page, you should see the following (in very small print) at the bottom of your pledge level:

    Survey sent: XX/XX/XX

    With the appropiate date substituted for XX/XX/XX.

    If you don't see that, then you haven't received a survey. If you do, I believe you can answer it by clicking the link next to it.

    No, it's on the OOTS Kickstarter page. But you won't be able to see it if you're not logged in.

    Might try to delete the cookies assigned for kickstarter if you can't log in and then try again. Otherwise perhaps contact Kickstarter to see if they can fix your login problem?
