Yes, sorry. Somehow I missed it.

Maybe it was only me asking it in some e-mail long time ago. Not sure.

Yes, I remember and I appreciate it.

I understand I should work to improve the issues myself instead of only writing.
Still, the point here is that some crowdfunding sites are very
attractive because they show all relevant information openly.
They show how much more money is needed for a certain project to
happen. I have wondered how they can collect so much money even for
gadgets that are in an early planning stage.

My black hole theory was not accurate, sorry about that.
I believe you give all information when asked, but it is not obvious
by looking at the web page.
I really think all relevant data should be there, presented in an
attractive way to "sell" the sub-projects.
It would include Donate-buttons for each sub-project separately and
other material to praise and advertise them.
