I had a thought while typing this to see if the pledge manager recognizes <youremail>+<identifier>@provider.com as a separate email address.

 

@WhiteWulfe Reporting back. It works! 

 

So, if you want to use the same email address as you did before, then you can create a new account in the pledge manager using that email address with an identifier tacked on to it. 

 

For example, if you initially created your PM account with [email protected], you can create a second pledge manager account with [email protected] You won't need to create or use a second email address and the new PM account will send emails to the same account as before. You can also filter by that email address to see emails specifically for round 2 of the PM.

Why not? And also too late 😞 !

I´m not on facebook so that info smoothly failed to reach me. Already entered with my second Mail-Account and ordered $200 worth of stuff...

 

What evils will now descend upon me??

I missed all that and just used a secondary email.

And Reaper's communication problems start again!
When will they learn?

Write it in a Kickstarter Update! Write on the log-in page! Write it in the pledge manager! Write it on sticky note and post it during a stream! Write it on Facebook! Write it on their own faces! Make a T-Shirt out of it!

All you need to do is Ctrl-C.

 

Also: I am not looking at the pledge manager. Not ordering anything. Nada. Nilch.

 I am so sorry Greek Expansion, it seems we will never touch.

This is just another example of poor communication.

 

How hard is it to put out a KS update with step by step instructions on what needs to be done for Bones 5.5 pledge manager.

 

I have to agree with some of the backers on the KS page, the information is randomly sprawled in various media with zero consistency

 

Sometimes they give you info on twitch, sometimes the info is buried in some response on KS, sometimes the information is on FB and who know where else.

 

Be consistent at a min.   Give people one place to go, that place being KS.

"Your Pledge Manager is locked in anticipation of shipping your selections.

If you want to select more, please register another account."

 

This is what the pledge manager says.

Like others have already said, you'd think they would put this information somewhere properly centralized, like the pledge manager itself or within a Kickstarter update. 

 

Facebook is NOT an appropriate place as the only spot to put the info.  Not everyone has an account, and better yet good luck getting your posts out to more than 40% of those who actually follow you...

I saw this discussion and went to Facebook (which is a major concession for me already, I avoid Facebook like the plague) to see the exact wording/reasoning - but I wasn't able to find anything on Facebook indicating they don't want people to use secondary email accounts. If it's there, it's not obvious to me, anyway.

 

Meanwhile, the pledge manager itself provides the instruction to use a different account: "If you want to select more, please register another account."

 

So I think those who want to order more via a new account are doing fine.

Regarding US fulfillment: Reaper has decided to go ahead and ship out orders that have the rune wights and dragon folk as their only missing items, as they had the retail versions of these two items that arrived in the previous container. If your order is missing any of the other previously listed missing items (bust collection, campground, ghost ship) then you are still waiting for the final US container.

 

ETA: They ran out of Shavynra, but they have confirmed that there are additional of that item on the last container. 

 

ALSO, there is limited stock of the retail rune wights and dragonfolk so it is possible that they will burn through that stock.

It'll help get some folks their stuff, and if Reaper already finished the non-delayed container stuff, then they can work on this with same missing-item protocol as before with a smaller list. I guess retail packaging is also typically done overseas for Bones, and those ones were done early?

New kickstarter update is out:

 

"Hey Backers,

Just got a notice from our freight company that the last US container should be in Dallas on 7/10, and that it should be in our hands early next week!

More news as we get it!

Reaper"

I was wondering if it would come to that...out of personal investment as that was all I had backed for of the Cursed Items.

That is a good decision.
I don't really blame Reaper for waiting, since the container being so late seems to be something completely out of their control. Choosing to do this is a good image for the company. Doesn't really affect me, but it does show how different Reaper is from many of the failed/partially failed kickstarters and why they can still keep people interested in Bones Kickstarters (Even if communication can still be improved a lot).
