Moved to Late / Failed
Might as well make a new section labelled 'If you actually invested in this, you are freaking mad!'.
All projects should start in Late / Failed / Scam and earn their way out
That is what the Preorder/Investing section is for. All projects start in the Announcement section. As soon as they set a delivery, go live, release date they go into the pre order investing section. There they are on the clock.
I recommended that Announcements should be just that that a project will be launched, nothing more. Any request for preorders, investments, etc request a set delivery time (end of the month, end of Q3, end of the week, etc.). No project should be allowed to set a date that is more than 1 quarter. If a request for preorders/orders/investments appears without a delivery date it should automatically be deleted.
With a preorder/order/investment request + delivery date the project should be move to that section with the subject line stating name, request type and delivery date set by the moderators moving the topic and editable by the project owner.
No redefining of delivery dates. You are delayed you go to late, no ifs ands or buts. That is what late means. You can get out of late if you deliver even if it was late, you automatically get moved to success, completed.
Just my thoughts
