    Please don't thank in thread. With the heavy volume of support requests right now, thanking in the thread is bumping it on the queue it a bit uselessly. Just post if you continue to have issues.

    I don't appear to have Beta Tester status or the ability to see the Backer Forums. I've already got my beta key so my information here should be correct. Thanks!

    I do not yet seem to have backer access, it has been about 3 hours (wait nevermind, this is my first post and I seem to have backers status (didn't see it anywhere in my profile to know how to check) but I haven't yet found the backers rooms in the forum tree so I figured I was still general.

    *edit again* ok it literally just changed. problem solved

    Hi! I seem to have the banner, but I don't see the backer's forums. Am I being a dope or are my permissions a bit screwy?

    Thanks!

    I'm likewise missing the backer access. The information used should be the same, as I already have the beta key entered into Steam.

    If you've just joined today, give it some time before you say things are missing, the system can't do these things the moment you join. Give it about 24 hours and if things still aren't set up, then post about it.

    Hey, joined a while ago, and for some reason I never got added to the Beta Tester's group despite having backed at the $40 pledge. I've got my game downloaded, but there's a few things I need to talk about that are preventing me from playing the game.

    I'm in the beta testing tier, but don't have access to any of the backer forums. Throw me a bone, guys! (would that be offensive to herbivores?)

    Sent you a PM (conversation? I think that's the right thing?) about this, still waiting on a response. Been playing the game and want to comment in the beta forum.

    Would've sworn we had already processed you. Did our system check revert changes? ... mhm. well, let's try again.

    Please give the system the full 24 hours to process. Permission conflicts tend to happen when we get ahead of the script check.

    As a general note to people, one thing we noticed yesterday while checking why some people were slipping through the cracks for the backers' beta flair upgrade.

    If you change your forum associated e-mail, but do not reverify it, the system will not tag you properly. This is intended behaviour (prevents unverified accounts from stealing upgrades from owners), but is resulting on unexpected consequences. So please, if you just registered, and changed your e-mail right after (within the 24 hours it might take the system to tag you), please verify your e-mail by clicking on the link sent to your inbox when swapping e-mails.

    Sorry to post here again, I think the post I made on Friday got lost in the swarm! I'm in the beta and still don't have beta forum access.

    @ManeSix Hi! I'm definitely having a bit of trouble.

    I originally tried signing up with my normal e-mail address, virtualadept01@hotmail.com , but for some unknown reason, I was never able to receive my registration confirmation e-mail, no matter how many times I resent it. I also wasn't able to get your attention without confirming my registration either, which was a bit frustrating. I eventually switched to an alternate e-mail address, which worked, but now that I'm confirmed, I can't switch my e-mail address back again without un-confirming and causing the problem all over again.

    So, I'm going to need help getting my backer privileges and switching my e-mail address to the account associated with those privileges. I'd be happy to give whatever kind of proof or authentication you require in that regard.

    Thanks a bunch.
