    The point is that I requested in the old stale thread someone start a new one that is actually updated. :)

    Got rid of those on purpose, they were hard to read.

    I'm also organizing them differently, before it was by "Importance", which leads things to be all mixed up, so I'm grouping them more logically, like grouping up all the stuff for UI and such.

    needs a pointless and arbitrary poll.

    (but thanks for the time and effort, this is nice to have)

    Hey since the kickstarter ended, shouldn't a [STRETCHGOAL] just be [CONFIRMED]?

    Yeah I need to go in and do a lot of optimization, it is still mostly a rehash of the original list.

    Plan to clean up the current list some more then dive into the Dev's Post logs and try to pull out some more confirmations.

    Stretchgoals aren't just a Kickstarter term. They're used by teams regularly to refer to things they'd like to if time/circumstance/luck allow it. Just a thought. :)

    Possibly an idea to label non-KS stretch goals specially, just so people understand that Uber is considering other things on top of KS.
