This week we also added all of the previous entries, as well as their previous contribution levels. These figures may be helpful for those projects that we mentioned last week; each week they indicate how much was raised in the previous week. For older projects, the numbers don’t mean very much this week, since they might represent a month or more worth of contributions.

Projects that were funded, or failed to fund, were removed from the list. Yeah, we should probably start adding those, too. I wish Kickstarter would give us a decent API or widget to do this automatically, but they’re dragging their feet.

In other news, GameSalute has started a Kickstarter-like initiative for board games only called Springboard. If it grows, we’ll start adding their projects to these lists.
