Glad to see the paypal is going strong and steady.

Can anyone generate a funding graph (y axis funds and x axis time) so we can see the dataset?

I'd like to think that the paypal is going a long way toward helping to fund the reward fulfilment.

Every donation pays for its own reward fulfilment, with money to spare.

That's the whole point, or they'd never have a profit to make the game with, no matter how much they raised.

I just mean that out of the 6.3 Mil raised on the kickstarter.. a percentage of that was to be used to pay for the rewards.

The extra 300k raised on the pay-pal will offset the cost to an extent.

But that has to pay for its own rewards, the same as if it had been raised on Kickstarter. PayPal backers aren't donating towards the fulfillment of KS backers' rewards.

Edit: I suppose I can see what you're saying if what you mean is that the profit (not the full $300K) from the Slacker Backer makes up for the portion of the Kickstarter money that had to be spent on reward fulfillment. If that's what you mean then it makes more sense than the way I originally read it.

Any Kickstarter reward fulfillment costs were already built into the pledge pricing and stretch goal tiers regardless, same with the PayPal rewards.

They're not chasing their tail trying to cover or offset fulfillment costs with the PayPal money, is what I'm saying.

I mean, put it like this: it's given YSnet several thousand in income per month, and likely enough to employ a handful of extra staff. Even if we never hit another stretch goal, it was used to employ more qualified developers to make the game better.

Yeah I see what yer say'in... but what I am saying is this: let's say the kickstarter made 6 million and 20% needed to go to reward fulfillment. That means that 1.2 million of the 6 mil would have to be used leaving only 4.8 million for development.

But let's say the paypal made another .5 million... you could say that those funds (or at least those fund minus rewards.. in this example 500,000 X.8 ($400,000) could come out of the 1.2 million needed to fulfill rewards based on the 6 million originally raised on the kickstarter.

Yu Suzuki could then look at the number and say.. well the kickstarter made 6 million.. but now instead of having to pay 1.2 million of that in rewards I only have to pay $800,000 (1,200,000 - 400,000)

Slightly over $300 before we hit $300,000 raised from Slacker Backers alone. I'm sure we'll make that this week, easily.

Especially with an update due to hit sometime before Saturday (unless Awesome Japan have started working weekends).

Great milestone. Good job, slacker backers. I may be joining your ranks by the end of the year with the replica jacket, although Brexit did kinda screw me on the exchange rate.
