Can I edit a project once it's been submitted to Kickstarter for review?

A simple 2 step guide for solving this common Kickstarter problem quickly and effectively by GetHuman

Hi there, Kickstarter has several project launch options: 1. Launch Now--If the project qualifies for Launch Now, the creator can go live whenever they're ready. They'll also have the option to share it with Kickstarter staff for feedback.
2. If a project doesn't qualify for Launch Now, the creator will need to share the project with Kickstarter for review before it can launch. This process can take up to two business days. If there are smaller issues with the project, the creator is asked to adjust. Once the creator has fixed the issue, they're free to launch. With either option, the creator is able to change, edit, and adjust the project before going live. However, once the project is launched the creator is unable to edit the funding goal or campaign duration. Hope this helps!
