I will point out that you only have to inspire creators to submit not find ones that will be approved. Still, I am not keen on actively suggesting it when I have no idea what the reception will be. Like Tasha, my points are mostly earned via passive methods these days. If there are questions about BackerClub in comments on a project I am following then I will answer them and sometimes point to the links in my profile for those who are interested in following up on it.

Also, as Tasha mentioned, I don't think that the credit always goes to the person who is discussing with a creator the idea of joining. I have had PM discussions with some when it is appropriate and then seen them in BackerClub and received no credit. Not a big deal for me. I'd like the club to grow strong and that rather than the competition is what I look for. The backer bucks would be nice given I am on a tight budget but to be honest I've also been too lazy to follow up on those already in my account so hard to complain.

So far in the 7 stars group 3 of us have each recruited 1 project. Looking at the recruiting/leader board at most 7 people are in the running for winning any rewards. And I believe 2 members have gotten in trouble with Kickstarter for "spam". Who could have predicted that? :?:

Did anyone win in August? Anyone?

I see same promotion for September. August saw 2-3 people suspended on Kickstarter and no winners announced. I'm sure the competition is going to be hot and heavy this month. Have either of the founders been around the forum in the last few months?
