Crowd funding and project pushing site, Kickstarter, have announced that they've seen 3 million people back projects on the site. Kickstarter have launched a total of, and still counting, 78,497 projects on the site.

Donation numbers are huge - seeing $362 million in "successful" donations, with 3,242 donations currently live and the success rate of projects is currently sitting at around 42%.

It was only back in April that Kickstarter came out and announced they had raised $119 million with $6 million in commission. Some projects are obviously more successful than others, but we're continuing to see records broken on funding amounts. I haven't backed many projects myself, outside of the Ouya console. What about you?
