Making better

<p>I have talked about [] here before. I have noe been a part of two failed campaigns. Granted one of them was aborted by the organizer early on, but the other was fairly modest (20 people x $12 for some bumper stickers). I just received notice that the campaign didn't meet its goal. So here are some problems i see with fundable right now</p> <ul> <li>There is NO WAY to revise a cmapaign once it starts and you must wait until the campaign fails (a month later) to end it. </li><li>There is no EASY way for a participant to contribute more than a single incremental contribution. Organizers should be able to set a contribution scale ($20, $50, $100, $250) </li><li>There is no AUTOMATED reminder that a campaign is coming to an end Basically every week there should be an update, with a link to notifyu more people about the funable campaign. So if the campaign is not meeting its goal, people who have already signed up can get informed in a passive way and choose to tell others to make a donation. </li><li>There is no way to scale back a goal. In many cases of group purchasing it is probably that you will know exactly what the item you want to buy costs, but what if you find one online for half the price (let say it is a pottery wheel, now instead of costing $1000 it costs $500), the organizer cannot revise the goal down to this new price, and if the $1000 goal is not met, the organizer has to start all over again. in the open source bounty scenario, a developer may offer to do the work far cheaper than originally estimated. </li><li>Matching campaigns: after starting a campaign, someone might discover it and decide that it is so worthy, they are willing to match other contributions (on a 1:1 or 2:1 basis) this could happen with philanthopic individuals or foundations, or individuals. But there is not way to accommodate this development <ul> <p>Basically fundable assumes that you have all your ducks in a row when you set out to create your campaign and that there will be no bumps in the road, nor posative changes in circumstances.</p> <p>These few small tweaks above could make fundable that much more useful of a tool.</p> </ul></li></ul>
