Whenever your Backer account is updated, you'll get an email from [email protected] with details of the changes (please whitelist it so it doesn't get spamfiltered!).

Here is a FAQ about how to read this email.

The guts of an update looks like this:

Recent Account Changes tells you everything that has happened to your account since the last time you were emailed. The first email you get will have a lot of entries about account, product and deliverable creation.

Your Account Name is either your name (if you signed up via PayPal) or your KickStarter account name. Funding Source is how you signed up.

Your Access Code is a random 16-character string that uniquely identifies your account. It makes it easier for me to find your account, and you'll also use it to identify yourself when voting on how to use the budget.

Name on Discs is how you'll appear on the disc. Initially it will be your Name from the Shipping information, but if you want to change it, you can (details below):

Name, Address and so on are your shipping address. Do not panic if these are blank, they won't get filled in until you complete the KickStarter survey and I download that data.

Account Balance is how much you've paid - how much you've ordered. For most people, this will be $0, which means everything is OK. If your balance is negative, then either I screwed up, your payment hasn't cleared yet, or you are an International Customer who ordered the US product via PayPal, so you need to pay some $10 shipping fee(s). If your balance is positive, and you want to use it to order additional products, email me at [email protected] and tell me what you want to do.

Products Ordered are the items you have actually ordered. Each item you order will result in one or more Deliverables being added to your account -- these are things I actually have to send out. So in the above example, Brian J. Mason signed up for Premium + Poster, so he has one product and two deliverables. Products have the same ID# as their associated deliverables, not that this means much.

Deliverables shows the status of your deliverable items. Each one will go through three states: Unshipped, Shipping, and Shipped. "Shipping" means your deliverable has been put into a batch that is getting packaged to send to the Post Office, and will probably go out in the next day's mail.


OMG! My Address information is blank!

If you have completed the KickStarter survey, then your address info should update in a few days. If it's been more than a week, contact me and we'll get it fixed.

How do I change my "Name on Disc"?

For now, email me with the details. The default will be the name of the person the set is being shipped to.

How do I upgrade from Basic to Premium?
How do I get an extra copy?
I'm a Canadian who forgot that means I need to pay extra shipping. How do I fix this?

Go to this super-secret Backers-only page:

What are the deadlines on ordering add-ons, or upgrading to Premium?

You can do this until we lock down production quantities. The deadline will be announced well in advance, and should be sometime in the Spring. But if you want a vote in how the Premium budget is allocated, you should upgrade before 1/1/14 or so.

I have a problem or question not covered in this wonderful FAQ. What now?

Email me directly at [email protected] and I will endeavor to assist you.

I'm still sending out backer emails, it's going a little slower than expected.

You can upgrade to premium for at least a few months (until we lock down production quantities) but if you want a say in how the premium budget is spent, you should do it within the next couple of weeks.

I pledged for a $150 reward tier and have received a shipment notice for the reward BUT I'm really worried about what value has been declared. I would hope that this was taken into account for those of us outside of America. I'm from the UK and since the reward didn't have a real value I would hope that it wasn't given one that means I would incur a customs charge on my end. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated

I valued the items at a reasonable wholesale price; $10 for the posters and (IIRC) $20 for cels and other items. So there should be little or no duty.

Most of the extra $$ Patrons paid was a contribution to the project, the goodies were just little thankyous.

Do we need to email our names for the 'Name on the Disc' if we have given you are address information already? 

The default is to use the shipping name as the Name on Disc. You only need to contact me if you want this changed (ie: a nickname)

Thanks for the reply. I expected as such but just panicked as I have barely any money to spare. Thanks for putting my mind at ease : )

The poster arrived today (Germany). Packaging unharmed, a few minor "wrinkles" (I'd guess from a long time in storage) and a very small tear (approx. 3mm) below the upper right corner on the poster itself. Vintage. :-)

Good to know that the international shipments are making it over the pond in reasonable time.
