This one though got me a little upset because I'm a creator and a BackerClub member. So, I told him he should check the projects that are on BC already before spamming everyone. He did apologize later.......
I can imagine how annoying that had to be.

I can understand your point of view. Glad you too, the high road in this situation. Remember, it's always easy to figure out BC projects. The search doesn't always work, older projects get moved down the list, and there is no way to check if people are members. I did ask Mark a couple of months ago to see if he could work on a member list.

I'm at least 3-4 months waiting for Mark to update the Help/FAQ files so basic information would be available to help backers and creators have a better feel for how to use the forum, how to be better backers, how to be better creators, how to get the BackerBucks you've earned. Nothing's changed so I've stopped expecting him to make changes he promises to do.

For a portion of the changes it was simple copy and paste for many of what I considered critical. I think it could have been updated in an hour depending on how difficult making basic text changes & adding links are. I'm not sure I have the information anymore as I used one of the "forms" for contacting Mark instead of sending by email.

Hmm I think even taking a few months off I might still be very frustrated. :?

It certainly would be nice of the admin to warn us that it is against Kickstarter rules to do what they are requesting we do and suggest that if we still want to try to get referral $ we should build a relationship with the creators and don't send many of same messages so we don't get reported or caught by the bot and get shut down.
I sure would like to know how the top guys get so many messages out and not get shut down ?!
Where did that referral list go anyway ?
