The comments section of a project is an open space for discourse between backers and creators. As such, we try to leave this area as "on the record" as possible so as to create transparency for everyone. In light of this, it is not possible for creators or backers to edit or delete a comment themselves. However, individual comments from a backer will be removed if they cancel their pledge while the project is still live, or are fully refunded after it ends. For comments that are part of a thread, these will be hidden from view.
It is important to remember that the comments section of your project will be viewable by anyone who lands on your project page. It helps to provide an insight into the success of your project, as well as the feelings of the people who helped bring your creative idea to life. This information may be useful to potential backers if you decide to run another campaign in the future or turn your Kickstarter project into a business.
If you feel that there are comments on your project page that violate our Community Guidelines, or are not relevant to the project, please feel free to report these comments by clicking the “Report” button on the comment and selecting a reason for the report. This will temporarily hide the comment while under review by our Trust & Safety team. If after reviewing the report our Trust & Safety team deem it necessary to take action, the comment will be removed by Kickstarter. For reported comments that do not require any action, the comment will be restored and it will not be possible to report this comment again.
