How Kickstarter works: If the target is met, the project is a go. If the target isn’t met, backers get pledged funds back, and the project isn’t a go.

Endorsers

I’m currently working on a new Endorsers Screen, to be included in the next release, probably on Monday.

If anyone has suggestions for Democratic-leaning endorsers, feel free to post ideas in the comments. Currently, it’s GOP heavy.

Here is a before-and-after:

Endorsers Screen Before

Endorsers Screen After

Endorsers will continue to be expanded after the next release. They’ll become more nuanced (instead of only caring about one issue or all or them), in particular. You’ll also be able to sort and view by tags (‘Senator’, ‘Governor’, and so on).

Good gaming!

Want to shape the future of President Forever 2016? Introducing the Steering Council

Interested in shaping the future of P4E16?

p4e16_steering_council

The Steering Council decides which significant feature will be added to P4E16, on a monthly basis, from a selection of several possibilities. The possibilities are generated in response to Steering Council feedback before the vote, and also ideas from 270soft.

Each member of the Steering Council has a vote on which significant feature should be worked on next (as well as the ability to discuss and influence other Steering Council members on which feature should be worked on next).

The feature with the most votes will then be started and (hopefully) completed that month. This will occur each month until the election in 2016.

There are a total of 150 spots on the Steering Council, maximum. To secure a spot, support the creation of President Forever 2016, and vote on which feature will be implemented next on President Forever 2016 until the election in 2016, you can sign up here. Spots on the council are $5.

Questions or feedback welcome – we look forward to continuing to expand P4E16!
