Meta: how do I edit & add to a kickstarter pledger?

Submitted by StephenRKass on April 23rd, 2013 at 10:43 AM

So, I'm confused. I just went on kickstarter to add an additional $45 pledge (for a couple more football HTTV & 1 more basketball hockey HTTV.) It seems like it wiped out my original pledge. Can someone more computer savvy than I am explain how to do multiple pledges for multiple copies? Thanks in advance to young whippersnappers who know how to do this.

I think multiple pledges require multiple accounts.  If you want to order more than one copy of the publications, I think Brian and the gang will have them available for sale on Amazon or some other forum like that.

I was able to do it yesterday.  Are you sure you are logged in?  If you are logged in on the pledge site there should be a big blue button that says 'Manage My Pledge'.  Click that and go from there.

That will allow you to change the amount of your pledge or opt for a higher level award package, but you can't order additional copies of the magazine that way.  The Kickstarter is a way to raise money to do a thing, not necessarily a way to buy a thing.

Go to http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mgoblog/hail-to-the-victors-2013?ref=card

Login

click the blue manage your pledge button on the top right under the days to go.

Enter the ammount of money you want to pledge in total.

select the bundle you want.

click next, blah de blah de blah.

 

at the bottom they mention that:

"One thing we learned: we can't accommodate unique requests (ie, I want ten books sent to these addresses) effectively. Hopefully you find something to your interests in the offerings; to better fulfill the promises we're making here we have to hold it to just the above options."

It sound like you are looking for 3 fb, 2 bb/h. they way they have the kickstarter set up this is not possible.

You could make another account (or 2) with a gmail address infinate loop. ("your normal gmail username" "+" "an extra part"@gmail.com) this lets you sign up for things using the same email but their system does not recognize the + so it assumes its an entirely new address. ie you dont need to make new email addresses.

 

Other kickstarter campeigns have an additional paypal account set up that you can do addons for your order. ie doing what you want, pay 15 bucks for any number of books. However as stated above they had a hard time doing that last year and decided not to do it this year.

 

TL;DR

You cant do that. make an extra account or do shameful things for Brian so he breaks the rules.

 As others have mentioned, Kickstarter rules prevent you from making separate pledges under the same account, but you can usually get copies of HTTV from the MGoBlogStore (last year's is still available, I believe), so hopefully that's true this year as well.
