Backers-Only Forum?
« on: July 23, 2014, 09:02:45 AM »
Heyo guys,

Awesome to see how things are progressing, congrats! :)

As a kickstarter backer, I received an email telling me there's a Backers-Only forum, but the link I follow takes me to a "you are not allowed to view this content. Do I need to do something special?

Cheers,

Dan.

Hi Dan,

The forums upgrade new users to backer status at one hour intervals. You should now be able to access that part of the forums.

For those of you who back via slacker backer, it does take us a bit longer to get that up to date. We have to update the system manually.

Cheers,
Justin

Justin, my forum account still has yet to be upgraded to backer status, and I backed the game twice -- once via Kickstarter (as Wambly) and a second time via Humble Bundle (for a friend). When a game update mentions a backers-only forum post, I click the link and find that I can't view it, even if I'm logged in 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 helps fix my status here.

Hello!
Curious about this myself as I backed via Slacker Backer/Humble on August 18th (for myself), as well as Sept 17th (gift). Would love to peek at the backer-only forums when someone has a chance to update the account permissions.

Also, are email updates being sent to Slacker Backers along with the Kickstarter ones? I haven't noticed any in my inbox yet.

Thank you!

Hey guys,

We'll do another roll over this week. Things have been a bit crazy with the recent release.

Apologies!

I am a "slacker backer", bought my Scribe key today. I can't access anything from my HumbleBundle download page.

How do you guys know i am a backer? How do you check it?

If you register on the forums with the same email you used to back Kickstarter you will be given Backer privileges on the forum. The script that checks emails runs every hour on the hour, so just wait a bit if you don't have it yet.  :)

However, since you're a slacker backer through Humble Bundle, you may have to wait for the LoG crew to add the new Slacker Backers to the forum backer list.

I'll reach out to Trent to get an update on when the Slacker Backer emails will be updated.

Will keep you posted. :)

Thanks 8BP!

Yep, we'll update the lists tomorrow. We actually haven't done it in a while. Our bad, sorry folks! Just crazy busy with all the backer alpha being out.

Slacker Backers can expect to have access tomorrow at some point!

Just a note on this, all Slacker Backers will now have backer status within an hour of registering. ;)

I registered here with the wrong email a while back, but quickly changed it to the same one I used on Kickstarter. From what I can see though, I haven't been upgraded to backer status yet D:

Hi I also haven't been upgraded to backer status. I registered with the wrong email then changed it on the same day at the start of the month. Any help would be appreciated :)

Ghost and Galvan please private message me what emails you bought the game with and change your profiles email to that if you've altered them. Thankyou.
