Kickstarter has added new rules that the crowdfunding company hopes will strengthen the relationship between project creators and those that back them. In a post on Kickstarter's blog this morning, the Kickstarter team detailed changes that they hope will address the widespread concern that many Kickstarter backers think they are purchasing a finished product rather than funding its further development.
Starting today project creators will have to detail what the risks and challenges of a project are, and what qualifies the owner to overcome them. In addition, simulations and rendered images of products will no longer be allowed for Hardware and Product Design projects.
