Do your research, if you feel like it's a good investment then do it. But you're donating/investing money, there's always a chance the project is going to fail everyone should know this. These people aren't milking you out of money, you actively have to choose to give it away.

I think it's a great way for indie anyone to get funding, it looks like if you use it right (start off small and build fan bases, become reliable and consistent on deliveries) there is enough forms of feedback for that positivity to spread on the internet. I think it's a great tool that kinda "levels" the playing field so to speak.

But like I said, you have to be aware theres always a risk when dealing with individuals and not established companies.
All so true!

And this part: " you have to be aware theres always a risk when dealing with individuals and not established companies." is also true from the campaigners perspective. You can rely on a Publisher to act professional, but when you're dealing with hundreds (sometimes thousands) of people, you come across a LOT of different personalities that you need to deal with on a daily basis. It can be rough.
