If you didn't receive magazines in the transition, that should have been taken up with GRM (as was conveyed by several emails, forum posts, and the main site.) If you didn't get magazines there's nothing I/we/GRM could do if you don't go through the right channels. And, posting on NASIOC isn't a channel.
It seems to me that you absolutely had a responsibility to "finish the job," and decided you didn't want to take that responsibility. So you gave it to someone else to deal with, who didn't take care of anything.

I wasn't around to know what exactly happened in the days of the magazine, but based on what I read in this thread and your responses regarding the issue, I think it's quite clear. I very reluctantly backed the kickstarter project (because I never donate to anything) and reading this thread definitely isn't encouraging.

Not to disappoint anyone or anything, but at the current rate, they would be lucky to raise just 1/4 of their proposed budget.

As of this posting, the following is true:
7 days (23 to go)
$1,885 pledged
$1885 / 7 days = ~$269.29 per day
$269.29 * 23 days = ~$6,193.67 total

Obviously just a quick estimate and doesn't really represent anything except maybe some perspective. I think they would need quite a few "big" backers to make their goal at all possible. That said, that final number is down from just a couple of days ago where I calculated ~$11k.
