Ha ha, yea, that's one I saw. And my name happens to be Tim, and at first I was like, "What the hey?!".
I suggested donations instead of just a vote because it deposits money in the SD coffers, which frees them up from being forced to work on expansion content so they aren't in the red.
I love added content, but there seems to be quite a few things that are current issues that players want addressed, and despite several months, have not been. To whit:
1) sound bug
2) fleet names
3) designing carrier fighters
Plus just simple house cleaning stuff like typos, or when the diplomacy dialogue window pops up you see the old one for a moment before it flickers to the current one.
The kickstarter would help direct SD to areas that players feel should get priority while alleviating them from financial strain.
