Let The Funding Keep Rolling In
One of the early pieces of feedback we received from developers listing their open source projects was the desire to allow pledges after a funding goal has been reached. Based on that feedback we’ve enabled overfunding for all features listed from this day forward. Payments will be dispersed when a feature’s funding period expires (60 days after listing).
Making this change allows backers to pledge if they want to show their support for a specific feature, even if it’s goal has already been reached. This change also gives more freedom to developers in terms of stretch goals. Already we’ve seen some creative uses of the platform and believe this change will only increase that.
Have an idea for how open source projects can get more funding? Don’t be shy! Share it with us and if it fits in the platform we’ll work to make it happen.
