Hey, Kickstarter neighborhood. I more than happy to share some brand-new item updates with you.
In the exact same blood vessel as our current news regarding the modifications we have actually made to remark small amounts, we’re publishing this upgrade to provide you understanding right into the job we’re doing as component of our recurring dedication to maintaining Kickstarter backers and also developers risk-free.
With this most recent upgrade:
- When a backer terminates a promise on a job, any type of remarks they have actually left on the job’s web page will certainly currently be instantly concealed.
- A job’s maker (or partner) can currently click a commenter’s name within their job’s remark area to see info regarding the backer’s promise, consisting of the promise overall, the attachments and also incentives chosen, and also delivery place.
We have actually made these modifications in order to lessen the possible influence of violent remarks. When they are made by backers that terminate their promises,
Makers have actually informed us they would certainly choose remarks to be eliminated from a job’s web page. We have actually seen circumstances where somebody has actually promised to a job so they would certainly be allowed to leave unfavorable remarks, and after that terminated their promise, just to have their remarks stick around on the web page and also taint the job. With this upgrade, remarks authored by somebody that has actually terminated their promise will certainly be instantly concealed.
We have actually likewise spoken with developers that when they are resolving their job’s remark area in order to respond to concerns or address concerns from backers, it is very valuable to have some fundamental context regarding each backer they are reacting to (e.g. info regarding their promise). Previously, the procedure for obtaining this context has actually been even more troublesome than essential. Moving forward, developers will certainly have a straightforward means to access a backer’s promise info right from within the remark area. Along with collaborating with backers and also developers to resolve their demands, we’ll be teaming up with a brand-new team we’re calling the Kickstarter Area Advisory Council
on our recurring security job. The Council, which introduces in June, will certainly assist direct us on a selection of issues, with an unique concentrate on aiding us guarantee that Kickstarter is as valuable, inviting, and also comprehensive as it can potentially be. We’ll have extra information regarding the Council coming quickly, so make certain to inspect back.
