How to get a $21870 pledge

This goal derailed and went from $0 to $5. So I dropped it down to $0. The webpage then read $5 -> $0.

Then I emailed support asking them to drop it down to $0 now. They did… but look what happened!

I’m really curious what would happen if I left it like this and then derailed in a week - would it try to charge me $21,870?

Now we just need to figure out how to get it negative so we can make money by derailing…

I’d try with inputting data like here:

To get screenshots of things where your mouse position at the time of screenshot matters, the windows integrated “snipping tool” has a delay function. Set it to 5 seconds, press create screenshot, move your mouse, then the whole screen stays frozen while you can select area normally.

That would look better than taking a pic with my phone, lol
