Agreed, the demand for constant updates really just strikes me as an entitlement issue. You gave money to help fund a project you're interested in seeing come to fruition not to get constant updates about whatever inane activities might be going on related to the project. I've worked on several games and I can say that a period of 9 days without significant news isn't uncommon, it's probably the norm. Also there's a cost to employ someone to update the kickstarter constantly, as an investor would you rather your money go to paying this person or to actual content for the project you're supporting. Ultimately it's your money but you're investing in a product not a marketing campaign. This isn't SEO nor marketing (per se) for the product, it's a pitch for an investment. I'll agree the pitch should be well done and rofessionally done but once you've decided to put your money in there's no need for them to constantly update unless there's actually something worth updating. Additional updates should be targeted at those who haven't put in their money so if a kickstarter is going well they shouldn't be spending their time and money on posting useless updates.
