Question Kickstarter Posts

Hey Folks

Is there a posting policy here regarding Kickstarter.com links? I'm running a campaign there for a documentary that I think would be pretty relevant to folks here (adventure riding, art, music...) and would love the feedback if nothing else.

Any help as to wether or not and where I can post said link would be great!

Thanks.

Yes, there is a policy. Kickstarter.com links are not allowed.

Kickstarter......

Does anyone know info about "the Fees" that Kickstarter may charge when a person "Donates/Pledges" $$$ for an item?? I was signing up to Pledge for a Vendor Book here and at the end there was a statement about Kickstarter has the right to charge a fee, blah, blah. I definately do not want to give any company my CC info and then, later on, they charge me for misc BS I did not want.....
I cancelled my pledge before it was completed......want info first hand.

And, contrary to what the pevious posts above say, there ARE Kickstarter links in the Vendor area. I don't have a problem with them.......if I don't want the item, I don't pledge......simple as that.

Vendors is different.

When you enter that forum, it is understood that people are trying to sell you something.

But, just like the FM, if you don't like a company's policy, don't buy from them.

Yes, there is the occasional kickstarter link in the Vendors forum and those are permitted on a case by case basis, but only if it's a relevant motorcycle related product and not "send me money so I can go on a ride and will post some kick-ass pictures for your enjoyment". (yes, this has been tried here, along with send me money so i can buy a bike to go on a cross country ride, -----> )

From what I've read, it's 5% from the funds raised.
