Is it me? Or are both the number of backers and the amount of money jumping up and down like crazy? One second it's 2.1 mil and the next it's 2.05 mil. It's starting to make me sea sick.

I've only seen it going up, but I also only refresh it every hour or so.

...1.1 million?

It's at 2.05 million.

Typo fixed it now. But seriously it was 2.1 this morning. And now it's dropped to 2.05 and going back up.

I saw the same jump, I think. When I came back from lunch, I thought it was a cache error. Doesn't seem to be that way? I was only looking at the dollar amount - I can't comment on the number of backers.

It could be that all the Snipers slamming the manage pledge page might be really screwing with Kickstarter's pledge total algorithms.

Good point, maybe it corrected itself to wipe out all the overload pledges?

It's the last day of the Kickstarter, people have been hording multiple pledges, today is the day everyone decides how much they are actuall willing to pay, and the excess is dropped!

Haven't been watching it that closely to see it jumping... but as long as the overall numbers keep going up on Kicktraq it's all good :)

I imagine some of the snipers will forget to reduce their pledge before the end and end up paying $250 for a King >_<
