Typically what happens is, someone posts a Kickstarter project with nothing more than an announcement and link to the project with no other details. One of the moderators usually replies to the topic suggesting they post some process, research etc., and 9 times out of 10 there's no response.
At that point it's simple spam advertising. Which is pretty lame.

On the issue of the forum rules (no selling, no spamming), what would be an appropriate way to announce a crowdfunded project this in the "Projects" forum? The forum rules do say:
...A short link to your studio, blog, portfolio or product in your signature is fine as long as it is relevant and your comment is the focus of your post....
...Commercial Activities. No direct selling of goods and services....
Maybe at the end of the project post something like: "Here is a link to the Kickstarter"? Small, unobtrusive, not directly selling?
