Updates on forum and Facebook

I'm moderately pleased to see the more frequent updates recently. But why don't many of these updates ever make it to the Kickstarter? I understand that it has to wait until Cabbit can do it as access to KS is limited but most of these updates never get posted there.

FYI the response on that

FYI the response on that thread by DesViper, PR, Forum Moderator was as follows

I'm pretty sure they're just asking why one-shots aren't KS-updates. Awhile ago we decreased the update load (from weekly KS updates to alternative one-shot, bigger update) to stay out of demo-cycling. I think this one should make it to KS though :)

IMO KS is where the people who paid for the project are definitely located, and are sure to receive update notifications if they continue to subscribe through KS. This feels to me like you are prioritizing Facebook and forum followers over the paying KS subscribers, forcing Likes and registration to stay informed. I am aware there is overlap but I feel the KS paying subscribers should be updated first and fully rather than being considered secondary and having to follow on other venues. Just my two cents.

We post updates to as many

We post updates to as many platforms as practical, to reach the largest number of followers as possible. In the past, we did use Kickstarter to post smaller updates, but the feedback we got said that people preferred that we only send through the larger development updates. We decided to move 'one-shot' and small updates to the forums, where backers could read them at their convenience. When we have information that applies to backer rewards or other exclusive offers, KS Backers WILL be the first to know.

Wait until you see the... nope, that would ruin the surprise.

A large number of KS backed projects stop updating to KS entirely once their own update channels are in place, I will note. We are the exception in making any use of Kickstarter itself by this point.

Oh, so there is a Facebook

Oh, so there is a Facebook site? I will have to check that out.

EDIT: Apparently I already knew that. It appears to be a site I was already following and just didn't remember.

I know this feeling lol, I've been following MWM on all formats and sometimes I'll get an email like I did recently with the "Countdown" and I was like what's with the countdown numbers everyday having completely missed all the information about the "Avatar Builder" which I'm super excited to get my hands on so much so I'll even be entering the costume competition!!!
