Add 'friends' to forum profile?

Hi there! I did some digging into the Vanilla forums documentation, and it doesn't appear that this is a feature that they offer out of the box. However, this is certainly something I can pass on to their team as a community feature request! :blush:

Add a Spanish Voice Channel on the AOC discord

Hi folks! At the moment we have channels in our Discord tied to which languages we're planning to support in-game - English, French, German, and Russian - so that we have CMs available for each of those languages to assist you.

We may look to support additional languages in the future, in which case we might spin up some additional Discord channels for them as well!

Will you hire interns?

Hi there - as our friend unknown mentioned above, our non-contract positions tend to be on-site, which means here at our studio in San Diego. While we may not have any positions listed at the moment for interns, you can always check out our other available listings here to see what we're hiring for!

Could you guys check my forum account ? I can't participate in the poll.

Hi there - if your information is displaying correctly on your Intrepid account profile but you're not seeing your correct Backer status on the forums, please go ahead and open a Support Ticket directly here so that our team can assist you further with your account information: https://ashesofcreation.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

I'm going to go ahead and close this thread out now, but please feel free to DM me directly if you have any further questions!

Thoughts on the directors letter?

@soulsonfire - looks like your Kickstarter status isn't even showing up on your forum profile, if you were an original backer! Please go ahead and open a support ticket here so our team can help fix this for ya: https://ashesofcreation.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

@odd - if your Explorer status is from the original Kickstarter campaign, it may just take a quick relog or cache clear to see the poll!

Kickerstarter Braver of Worlds, unable to see voter poll for Puppy/Kitten

Hey folks! I posted this in another thread, but if you're seeing the correct backer status on your forum profile, it may just take a quick relog on the forums (or a cache clear) to get you in to see the poll :)

If you are an original Kickstarter backer and are not seeing your backer status on your forum profile at all, please message me directly so we can resolve your account issue specifically!

Creative Director’s Letter

Heya folks! If you're an original Kickstarter backer and your forum profile shows your correct backer status, a quick relog on the forums to check your permissions will let you vote :)

If your forum profile isn't displaying your backer status when you believe it should be, please message me directly so I can help you further!

(Please keep in mind that this voting is only available to backers who were part of the original Kickstarter campaign, not the separate Summer campaign!)

Dev Discussion #6 - Share Your PvP Experience

Thanks all for sharing your PvP stories and experiences through the years - this was a wonderful walk down memory lane, and helps provide lots of fun insights for our team <3 gathering up a summary now, and we'll see you in the next Dev Discussion!

All my old badges are gone :O

Hi all - checking back in on this thread to gather some more bug report details from you! It sounds like this issue may be arising due to the connection between your Intrepid and forum accounts, so your backer badges will appear to persist but the badges you received directly through the forums will appear to "reset" when you log back in. However, it does appear that posting again or receiving another "Like" will indeed restore your Badges to their correct values in the meantime!

I've gathered up all the info you've all shared so far to pass along to our team and Vanilla to see what might be going on here - thank you again for the additional reports, and please feel free to message me directly with any other details you have to help us track this down!

There will be various types of trolls. This is one of smaller stature. ;)
