Thanks for note. That said I do not see that the campaign has been opened (for me it reads as upcoming). Perhaps something you need to change or look into? Or have I done something wrong?

Sorry, missed the "PM" word. My fault. Was so eagerly triggered on the machine... :)

Thanks!

You can still sign up to be notified, even before 9PM BST.

The issue here is that you never confirmed your email when you originally created your Kickstarter Account. Log in to Kickstarter, click the resend confirmation email option, and click the link in the email you receive.

THEN you will be able to sign up to be notified.

Stupid bug in the Kickstarter site that doesn’t tell you what went wrong, even though they know exactly why!

I wonder if the backer options and prices will be similar to the first KS, or will there be some new options and/or higher prices. Hopefully prices won't be too much higher if they are. Guess we'll know in about 6 hours...

UPDATE: yeah the prices are higher, but they offer good reasons for it so it's OK IMO. I pledged for a full-out Next Accelerated, just in case I want the extra goodies someday they'll already be there. :-)

Fingers crossed these can actually ship next summer.
