The Partyaki Home Hibachi Kickstarter Project Approved.
You know the feeling. The feeling you get the moment you hand in that final exam to your teacher that you’ve been working on for the last semester. It’s the moment of truth. You’re hoping you completed all the requirements to move to the next class, that your teacher can approve all you’ve been doing and you can just keep moving forward. We’re not in college anymore, but Kickstarter acts as the teacher who teaches us ( the project creator) rules, regulations, best practices and all the requirements we need to adhere to before we’re able to get our project out to the world and mark our Kickstarter project approved.
As you may know by now, we are about to reveal the Partyaki to the world in a few days. To be exact, we are going live at noon (EST) on February 27th, 2016. But before we even think about revealing Partyaki to the world, we had to submit our entire project to Kickstarter to get approved. I was confident that we had everything in order, however, there is always that little feeling of, what if I missed something. Especially when you want everything to be as perfect as possible. Kickstarter is known to manually review every project which is a layer of security that we very much appreciate. This step of quality control is necessary to protect backers from fraudulent projects and to make sure project creators don’t miss anything important.
How KickStarter Approves Projects
The Kickstarter platform has run so many campaigns in the last few years that they are able to automate certain kinds of projects in order to speed up the process. This is how the process works according to Kickstarter’s CEO: “It’s important to note that every project on Kickstarter is reviewed — first by an algorithm and then, if needed, by a member of your team”.
How KickStarters algorithm works, straight from the source
“How does the algorithm work? It analyzes thousands of attributes in a project and looks at how our team has handled similar projects. If the algorithm gives a green light, the creator can launch their project immediately, or get personal feedback from a member of our team first. If the algorithm puts up a red light, the project is manually reviewed by their team to make sure it meets their rules. Simple as that.”
Now that you understand how it works, you can better understand the process from a project creator side. We have been working on this project for years now and we felt that it was time to submit it for review by Kickstarter. We were very pleased when we received a quick response from Kickstarter saying:
“Everything looks great! When you’re ready to go live, just click the ‘Continue to Launch’ button on the ‘Status’ page of your project”
As you can see we are ready to go! We got the green light and now is time to reveal the Partyaki to rest of the world. Hopefully you can join us on this incredible Partyaki journey.
