Kickstarter has been in the news rather a lot lately. With increasing competition from Indiegogo, the crowdfunding site relaxed its rules regarding campaigns. And then came the infamous potato salad Kickstarter, which is likely to be the first in a long line of dumb Kickstarters.
Having already detailed some of the stupidest Kickstarter campaigns ever conceived, it’s time to forget the negative and focus instead on the positive. Which is where you come in. We need your help, via this week’s We Ask You, in compiling a list of your favorite Kickstarters of all time.
Picking Kickstarter Stars
We want to know, What Is Your Favorite Kickstarter Of All Time? As you can see from the question, we’re not asking you alone to come up with a long list of worthy Kickstarter campaigns. Instead, we just want you to tell us one Kickstarter campaign that resonated with you.
Perhaps you pledged money to see it succeed, or perhaps you just made a mental note of it thanks to how clever, creative, inspired, or genius it was. It doesn’t matter which of these it was, as long as the Kickstarter campaign you nominate is one you think is worthy of receiving a mention on MakeUseOf.
We may be a technology site, but please don’t limit yourself to nominating just technology-based Kickstarter campaigns. As Kickstarter is a website it already qualifies as being related to technology, so the campaign you mention could be for a book, a comic, a film, a gadget, a video game, or anything else you care to mention.
Even if you’re not a regular visitor to Kickstarter, please don’t feel you have nothing to add to the conversation. We Ask You is all about having a discussion, so any opinion you have to offer on the subject of Kickstarter, Indiegogo, crowdfunding, or the potato salad guy will be gracefully received. Unless it’s spam, in which case it will be deleted. Eventually. Probably by me. With glee.
Have Your Say
All comments will be read and most will earn a reply, before a follow-up post is published containing the We Ask You Results. One reader will even win Comment Of The Week, which will be included in the follow-up post!
We Ask You is a column dedicated to learning the opinions of MakeUseOf readers. This column is nothing without you, as MakeUseOf is nothing without you. So please do take part in the discussion below, as together we can try to talk this subject out until we reach some (hopefully) startling conclusions.
