Status report!

The fully animated and updated video should be ready tuesday-ish.  

I am still thinking that I need to eliminate the $10 level.  

The earlybird list continues to grow, plus we will do some re-runs from the earlybird list during the better world book kickstarter.  See the latest earlybird list here

https://permies.com/w/earlybird

We got approved by kickstarter!  So now this new page is public

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/paulwheaton/garden-master

I wish to ask that you click on the "notify me on launch" button-ish thing.  The big reason is that the earlybird stuff is open during a very short window.  If you miss that window, you don't get the earlybird stuff.   The "notify me on launch" thing will tell you when the kickstarter starts, within seconds.  Our other stuff to notify you could take a full day.  So if it might take you a day to check your email, you might get to it too late!  

The kickback thread is set up and people are asking for ref codes here

https://permies.com/kickback

The free heat movie should be done in the following week.

Overall, I think this kickstarter could go live in 10 to 14 days!

A quick note about the value of "notify me on launch":

If you select this feature, you will get notified within seconds of the kickstarter starting.  

If you don't select this feature, you will have to wait until our human being staff get around to all the different ways to notify people.  And those ways can often times take a very long time to process.   I think sending the monthlyish now takes more than 12 hours to send to everybody.  In the past it seems like it has taken us a full day to get all the info to everybody.

So if you sign up for the "notify me on launch" thing, it is kinda like you have a whole extra days notice to get the earlybird stuff.

In addition, there was one time where we were funded in three hours.  That was super cool!  When you spend two months freaking out whether the whole project will get funded at all, and then it gets funded in three hours - that is a super comforting feeling!  And, since I am currently in the throws of that nervous/panicky/icky feeling of "will we get funded" ...

So ...  please do the "notify me on launch" thing ...

I know that for the "notify me" stuff for the SKIP book, we hit 822 before going live.  And for the "free heat" kickstarter, we got to 402.  

We're at 510 and we are still about a week away from launch!  This is exciting!

Click on the thumbs up on this post if you agree that the $3000 reward should be removed.

I think we should remove it because we have offered it several times in the past and nobody has ever selected it.  So it is just eating up valuable real estate.

click on the thumbs up for this post if you agree that we should add a $1500 reward that is a ticket to the 2023 GMC.  And this reward includes the stuff at the $1000 level.  And the $2000 level also includes a ticket to the 2023 GMC.

Hearing Paul's voiceover by itself, the audio clips every time you get loud.  Not sure if re-recorded would be in scope at this point.
 
Everybody's invited. Even this tiny ad:
