Kickstarter Is Not a Store

Ladies and gentlemen, Kickstarter would like to announce that it is not a store. I repeat, Kickstarter is not a store. Oh yeah, they changed a bunch of rules too.

It's hard to know how many people feel like they're shopping at a store when they're backing projects on Kickstarter, but we want to make sure that it's no one. Today we're introducing a number of changes to reinforce that Kickstarter isn’t a store آ— it’s a new way for creators and audiences to work together to make things. We’d like to walk you through these changes.
