New Feature: Comment on Project Updates
Today we're pleased to release a new feature designed for communication facilitation. We've added an option for supporters to post comments on the Updates posted by the project's owner. This provides another way for project owners to communicate with their backers, and for backers to provide feedback and ask questions about the projects they support.

Special thanks goes out to several PodPledge users who asked if this feature could be added. Feedback like this is always appreciated, and we're always excited to implement new tools like this that improve the user experience!

New Feature: Supplemental Pledges

You spoke, we listened!
Today, we are happy to release a new feature that is the direct result of feedback that we've received from PodPledge users. Those who are supporting a project with an ongoing pledge (such as pledge of $5 a month) will now have the option on the project's page to make an additional, one-time pledge to it. This additional pledge will still count towards earning incentives, but will not modify the supporter's ongoing pledge in any way.

Previously, if a supporter who was making an ongoing pledge to a project wanted to make an additional, one-time pledge, they would have had to first cancel their ongoing pledge, then make the additional, one-time pledge, then restart their ongoing one.

This new system is much more streamlined. Thanks to the users that provided the feedback that lead to this improvement. We appreciate it, and are always looking for ways to improve the experience of our users!

On a recent episode of his Rolling Dice & Taking Names podcast, Marty Connell mentioned one of the reasons why he and his co-host Tony chose to use PodPledge as the means to raise funds for their show:

“We've gone with PodPledge because it merges two ways of support. With Patreon, it's an ongonig thing where every episode - or every month - you contribute X amount of dollars. And then you have something like IndieGoGo or Kickstarter where it's just like a month-long [campaign], where you give a one-time pledge.

People like to do different things different ways. PodPledge supports both. There's a way you can give an ongoing pledge, or you can give a one-time contribution.”
- Marty Connell: Rolling Dice & Taking Names, Episode 85

Another new feature launches!
Today, a new messaging system has launched on the PodPledge site. This will allow users to send each other direct messages, which can be an excellent way for project owners to communicate with their supporters, or to ask a question to another person who has backed a project.

The messages that are sent using PodPledge's contact system are kept secure, and the user's email address is never displayed. Unwanted messages can also be reported to our system administrators as spam.

This new system will help facilitate communication between project owners and their backers, and provide a means for all PodPledge users to communicate directly with one another. Enjoy!

New Feature!
Project "Milestones" are now available. Milestones are financial goals for your crowdfunding project. Project owners can now enter a list of Milestones, which will be displayed in their own tab on the project's page. As each Milestone is achieved, it will automatically be marked as "funded" in your project's Milestones tab!

Milestones are beneficial, because they show your supporters exactly what your project's goals are, and establish a target for how close each one is to being achieved.

A new PodPledge feature has been released today!
It's not a huge feature, but it's a nice one. Well, I like it. And I'd still like it even if it wasn't my job to write polite things about PodPledge on social media sites. Yeah, it's that nice.

Project owners can now chose to receive notifications by email when supporters post a comment on their fundraiser projects. It's a great way to keep informed, and in touch with, your backers!
