I have an original Founder Pack (backers back) from way back in the day round 2011/2012, yet the founder packs you guys are giving credit for are the ones released back in 2014, My account is from 2011, as stated an Original Backer full pack with the Bike from back then, back when all we had access to was the beach outside the Starting Town.

Heyo, kind of behind the ball on all of this, though I did have a founder's pack for Firefall.

I went to try and do the founder's credit program, but woe to me, I never actually made an account forum-side on Firefall, since I never touched the forums. So while my account page lists having the founder's pack since nover 12th, 2012, my forum account is aged about 10 minutes ago when I was trying to plug in info for the founder's credit thingy.

I'm hoping there's something I can do about this, and I'm not just a fool for not having dug around enough to find that there's already a solution, but would love any input on this matter.

Edit: Just saw the bit in the FAW about not being able to verify things like my current situation. Ahh well, my own fault I guess for not being social.

Got Commander back ~4 or so years ago. Appreciate the 100$ reward! Definitely will be backing or buying whenever I can.

April 11, 2011

Still have my original beanie and poster.

*EDIT*
Is there a way to see the link in the forums or anywhere?

they're giving credit for the beta backers. I bought it on the last day it was available and got my reward.

I do have a Firefall account that is years old, but I do not have a forum account. Am I not able to receive anything?

UPDATE: Smile put together this video walk-through of the process:


Well, got some big news today, thanks to some code that Xeevis was able to whip up, we are now making this special offer:

If you ever purchased a Firefall Founder's Pack, we are offering you a full credit on Em-8ER's virtual goods store when it launches. Even if you never purchased a founder's pack, you can still get a $10 credit if you joined the Firefall forums before the end of 2015.

Simply go to this page to verify your founder status and link it to your Em-8ER forum account.

https://emberbot.jadex.eu/founders/

You can read more about why we are doing this here:

http://nichegamer.com/2017/01/26/em-8er-interview-mark-kern-firefall-redeeming-fans/
On a personal note, I would personally like to thank all the original Firefall fans. This is my way of making it right. But please act fast, we have no control over The9 and Firefall forums. They could go down anytime and we won't be able to verify your account in the future.

Note from Ronyn - If you have any issues with the process. Here is where you can ask for support. https://discord.gg/hEmgsmA
So is it ONLY if you have a forum account? Is it the only way you can verify the old Firefall players? Oh well. My name ingame used to be ''Formicidae''

I just about fell out of my seat when I read that Em-8ER was going to be a thing. Major kudos to Grummz and Staff!

Now onto business. I'm a little behind with the news, and I hate to sound like a pleb... but screw it, I'm going full ham! I purchased a Small Starter Pack back in July of 2013. Does this entitle me to FF Founders status, or am I considered a Veteran?

The reason why I'm asking is that the Credit Program site cant find my badge. This might be due in part that the FF Forums look like they are messed up (big suprise). I have ticked "display founders badge" in my profile and saved it, but since no-ones avatars are showing up, I'm going to guess the badge itself also isn't showing.

Do I just have to wait and keep my fingers crossed that the forums come back up so I can attempt to validate? Or is there a way to push forward my validation?

Please assist! Thanks!

If you go to the discord and tech support area you can get some help with stuff from Xeevis.

That said (and I don't recall for certain) I think 2013 was after Founders packs (they were sold earlier on in beta) so you might just not be eligable. There were several other types of packs sold after them that wouldn't count.

That makes a lot of sense to be honest. I was looking back at my purchase history, and there's nothing there that specifically mentions any of the Founders Pack tiers. Its curious that the forum does have the option to list a founders emblem under the profile page, but this is most likely a blanket setting.

All the same, thank you for the help and support suggestions!

Sorry to hear that. I got no reports of any page being broken on Firefox or any other browser. But to make sure I've tried it with latest stable version and everything works as expected. In logs I see you were trying wrong UserIds, perhaps the script that is extracting UserId from profile url didn't work? Don't you have any extensions that could interfere with javascript code execution? Can you give me more details so I know what to watch out for in case someone has the same problem in the future?

Mark, I deeply thank you for this! Completely unexpected. I was in full support before this and I am humbled that you would do this for all us "old timers" from the early days.

I remember that trip to R5 Studios when your original vision for Firefall was still strong and pressing forward. Meeting you and the old team was easily one of the highlights of my life.

Moving forward I am excited for this new adventure!

Thanks again,
~Smitty

im using firefox 52.0.2 (32 bit) on windows 7 SP1 no mods installed on it except an ad blocker. I tired with n without ad blocker and got knowwhere. I used the same names on IE as i did with fire fox but Ie made it work straight away...im putting it down to a bug caused by FF forums as the page showing the badge didnt want to show up on firefox eithier but it did on IE... on a side note...that info page with ur badge didnt show the picture of my badge on IE or Firefox so there is/was at least 1 bug on that forums page

Long time Firefall player here, am more excited for this game than any other game ever, seriously when I found out Firefall is having a spiritual successor and it has mechs I was so excited! I only found out about this about a week ago, I remember wishing I've gotten the founder's pack all the way back when, and now I've gone back to regretting it again since it would've meant supporting this game! D: Either way I'm looking forward to supporting Em-8er's development in any way I can <3 even if having gotten a founder's pack isn't a thing I can do anymore unfortunately.
