Friends dont have access to secret forums?

Post by Cyrus » Mon Dec 16, 2013 9:49 pm

Recently, I was shown how to give my friends their deserved forum badges when I bought the $90 backer option. (Thanks, casauchi!)

If I read correctly, they should also gain access to the secret forums, but I have been notified by them that they can't see it on the main forums page, and when I tried linking them, it told them they were unauthorized to go into it.
Is there any way I can give them their access, or do they have to be inputed personally by a dev?

(If the latter, I can provide their usernames, else they comment.)

Thanks in advance!

Hello again Cyrus! :)

Because you paid with PayPal, the system that gives out the badges and access to the secret forums isn't automatic, this is because of compatibility issues with PayPal (I think) so what you will need to do is post the names of those needing to be given access, a dev will come along and read your post, and allow access to them!

Hope this clarifies things for you! :)

Thanks, again! The whole PayPal payment is confusing because Kickstarter doesnt support it (for some reason..) so it just adds more work and confusion for myself and im sure others.

Otherwise, for the lovely Dev who happens to stumble across this, here is a list of the other 4 that I have given to from my purchase:
  • aaaddd4747
    erblers
    TarztheGreat
    TK9501
Thanks again to casauchi, and in advance to the dev who sees this! :)

Hello aaaddd4747 :), basically in short, your friend has given you the badge, and to see the secret forums, you will need to wait for a dev to come online and put your name in the user group. Hope this makes clear of any confusion surrounding it! :)

Hey guys!
It seems like you guys were part of the Secret Access Group but not by default. I'm not sure why, but I went in and changed it!

Let me know if still doesn't work or there are any problems! Feel free to PM me too! :)

Best,
Edinstein
