I have been asked a lot of questions on my Indiegogo so with one day left I wanted to answer those questions. Hopefully this will help not just those interested in supporting me, but supporting others.
So what is a dice bag?
A dice bag is a small draw string pouch that is normally used to hold dice for tabletop gaming. You don’t have to just use it for dice though.
How secure is giving someone money on line?
It is very secure when done through proper channels. Crowdfunding sites such as Indiegogo and KickStarter charge your credit card directly when the campaign finishes. They do it in a very safe and secure way and the person you contributed to never sees your payment information.
How do I contribute?
Choose a perk on the right hand side of the campaign. Make sure you read the campaign itself for more information about the rewards. If you wanted to contribute more than what the perk is for, just add the additional amount in the checkout.
What are stretch rewards?
Stretch rewards are goals that only happen when campaigns reach certain levels. The Indiegogo I am running for Quiltoni has the first stretch reward at $5,000. If the campaign reaches that amount, everyone who has pledged $60 or more will receive a free dice bag! The next reward level of $10,000 gives those same people a 2nd dice bag they can customize and make reversible,
There is a time limit, what does that mean?
Just that, most campaigns are only for a certain period of time. In the case of my campaign, it ends Sunday February 28th at night. That means the rewards won’t be available any more. For me, if I don’t raise enough to pay for the things that were stolen, I won’t continue taking commissions and may stop attending some conventions. For other campaigns they may have rewards that are only ever going to be available at that time.
Hopefully this helped everyone that isn’t familiar with Indiegogo and KickStarter!
