Yafaray on Kickstarter

I wonder why Yafaray did not start yet Every time I see the number of users of the program and a list of donors, I am devastated.
Really on portal kickstarter, less ambitious projects collect the 10-20K dollars. It really do not harm you to try. Just do awesome galleries, write what you have to do and the need for it so much and so many.
Yafaray needed library materials CUDA acceleration and Open AL, but please no real-time.
I love Yafaray for it is not, Unbiased renderer and I ask to stay that way.
Yafaray need a package with sample files, how to set the carpet, how to set the caustics etc..
Shaders may have to be a system of NODE, or on what other allows to combine several Shader such as:. Layer Material in Vray exporter.

Someone said once ' The movement is demonstrated walking .. '. There are several routes to activate this project, that do not need money:
- to publish works in the forum and to demonstrate that it keeps on being a good tool.
- to take part in the forum contributing ideas or simply answering the questions.
- contributing something of code if you are a programmer.
- creating scenes of example and sharing them with the others.
- promoting the use of YafaRay in other forums.
- ...

They already know what YafaRay can do for you, now ask him that you can do, for YafaRay.
It is not enough to enter the forum every 6 months and to write a brief comment .. ' move .. '
Perhaps it seems to you that this project is stopped, but for another people, it moves every day.
