And now it's back up to 95371!

I assume the person who put 5k in cancelled, and then put 6k back in again?! I'm sure someone will be able to find out.

Strange - it just went DOWN to £89471 for a moment and now it's back UP to £95371

Maybe someone put a wrong amount in, cancelled their pledge, then made a new one (that's how it works)... or maybe someone's screwing around?

Great news if true but I think we should wait and try to verify the amount before getting too excited.

Thinking about it this is my concern. It's pretty easy to make a pledge. I hope it's not some sad act on the windup.

Over 96k now. It's gone crazy

Over 97k now.

I suppose it could be that the 10k pledge (which Stodd thinks is genuine) has created a load of momentum, and as it's reached near the end, people who were holding off are now deciding to get in there before it reaches 100%.

However we did reach out to a lot of new people on Facebook after our win last night, as I noticed. We've gone from £91k/238 investors to £97k/252 investors in the last hour or so, so it's not just one person and all accounts need to be self-verified before they can make a pledge.

In fact I've just seen another £100 go on to take us up to 253 investors, so we could have just tapped into the mainstream investors, but they'll all need to join the Supporters Group, of course, so there's another check we can make as to their authenticity.

There could be cash pledges going in, of course. Maybe Brad Groves decided to chuck some in himself?

I'm curious to see what happens to the totaliser when it breaks £100k!

That's comforting.

Can this Community Share Issue become "Over Subscribed" once we reach £100,000 in pledges?

I'm trying to send my pledge in and it keeps returning an error message

"Sorry! Bad request

Redirect uri does not match the uri registered in the developer panel

Cancel uri does not match the uri registered in the developer panel"


What mistake have I made?

Issue reported when trying to use the card option. Can complete as a cash pledge.

I'd much prefer to use my card as I can use my credit card and claim benefits for doing so, but I'll make the cash pledge in the interim period.

I had that problem so made a cash pledge, withdrew it and then put it in again using GoCardless and it worked.

We've cracked £100k and broken the totaliser!

There seem to be a lot of small investors this evening - quite probably because of the banner which Craig has put up on the Echo website.

oh...when I looked at it it was bang on £100k which seemed odd because of the random figures that were in there before...

Hope it keeps going I am very wary of 'rubber' cheques.

Let's keep it rolling until the end of May, amazing stuff. Absolutely amazing!

The sense of community, the players, the management, everyone pulling in the same direction has been absolutely phenomenal, the best I've felt in my 25 years supporting the team.
