Welcome to the latest Open Discussion for October. In this series you can post anything that you like about video games or other mediums and will face no censorship when doing so. This series of discussions change every week, but mainly focuses around video game culture.
Open Discussions arrive every Sunday on this site and explore a wide variety of topics that include technology, interactive entertainment, politics and other mediums, and like any other post on this site, no comment will face any form of censorship.
If one of your comments, however, faces a form of censorship in that it is removed or blocked, please do let us know so that we can address the situation and restore your comment back to what it was intended to be when it was first posted. Due to the acts of WordPress and Disqus, it is unclear what might happen to a comment, so do please speak up.
With that said, this Open Discussion is about crowdfunding websites like Kickstarter and Fig, and other places like Patreon to support developer projects (big or small) that need your help.
In addition to the above, do you think that there should be more crowdfunding websites to help people out when they have no alternatives? Or do you think that there should be less crowdfunding services?
In general, developers take to crowdfunding platforms to make a project, while others use it to scam people. If there were more or less crowdfunding services, do you think that there should be more rules in place to prevent people from abusing these platforms?
As of course, if you have something else on your mind and wish to share it you are free to post it up here. This means that content unrelated to this very topic can be shared without being moved or taken down.
