Not shown as Backer?
« on: June 06, 2014, 09:35:15 AM »
So, I just created my account for the forum the other night after backing the game through the Armello site, and I've used the same email address to register, but I still don't have the "Backer" title on my posts. I paid through the Amazon option, but my account on Amazon is still through the same email. Any ideas?

When the forums first opened up backers from the actual Kickstarter only had to wait about an hour from sign-up where as those backing after the campaign via the Armello website had to wait about a week for the backer status to be applied to them. I'm not sure if you'll have to wait a week or what exactly the time table for that is, but I wouldn't worry about it until more time as passed. If you're still waiting a week from now then you should contact them about it.
According to long lost articles about the development of the game, the original working title for Armello was actually Murphy's Law: The Digital Board Game.*

The Scribe Tier. I really wanted the art book and the novellas, but I needed to save money for groceries, so I couldn't get the Bandit Tier. :C I was happy when I found out that all of the additional stretch goal characters had been reached though! Really loving the wolf ranger.

Hi, I'm an Artisan backer and registered on the forum a while ago but I haven't received backer status yet. On Kickstarter I login with my Facebook account. Not sure if that makes a difference, but that one uses the same email as the one I registered with here. Same email as I use for Amazon payment.

Not so for me. I backed via Kickstarter with the same username and email address and still am not shown as a backer here.

EDIT: I double-checked and found that a web browser extension had helpfully masked my email address for me here, so I changed it to my Kickstarter email address. I hope that solves the problem... but will probably have to wait until tomorrow to see if it has.

What if you used a different email for the forums and the pledge on the website?

You most likely won`t get to be a backer. its stated that it has to be the same e-mail as in kickstarter.

You can change it in your account information I think?
