It's simple really.. once the balance of the funding is complete, the funding is complete - i.e., there is nothing left of the budget that needs funding. Therefore, additional monies added do nothing but reduce the value of the revenue shares for everyone else.
Part of "investing" (which is not what you're doing) is risk taking. You're not buying government bonds. If you don't think the project, as it stands right this moment, is worth buying additional tool packs, then don't. If it is, then buy them.
It's easy to put money into a project once you have all the answers and you know what the outcome will be. That's when developers need the money the least. It takes faith to put it up at the start when the outcome is cloudy, but that's when developers need the money the most.

We are so close to 1 million on our side of the funding. It would be nice to see that happen before it all is final would make a great statement to this whole concept of WMD. As for me I am locked down right now and can't budge. Wish I could.

Mica, when it comes to the risk taking there is another significant factor which is how much people have to loose. I have admiration for you putting your money in early but the calculation must be risk compared to potential gain versus how much it would hurt if things did not go well. I get the impression that for you a loss would have been more sustainable than for most.It's easy to put money into a project once you have all the answers and you know what the outcome will be.

I'm in the process of putting in an additional 13K which is our family savings. To follow this there will be another 41K from me claiming back mortgage over payments. I'm comfortable with this despite the lack of approval from my family who do not know much about the situation. My wife is being supportive but is clearly concerned and my daughter thinks I.m nuts. Loosing the money would not put us out on the streets but it is big deal for us. I simply wouldn't have considered putting that amount of money in earlier due to steering lag issues etc because the risk was perceived to be too high in comparison to the available funds. Please don't think too badly of those who did not have the luxury of being able to put in large amounts earlier. The project needs investment from people like you, the developers and people like me. Please don't grade our contributions on the size of our balls or, more likely, the size of our bank accounts.
I don't think that is where Micas is at all as to the other contributors his point is you either do it or not and everyone's situation is different I think you mistook what he was saying.
