Badges missing

Glad to hear it sounds like everyone's got their Badges! I'll go ahead and close this out now - feel free to message me directly if anything still seems to be missing :)

Any chance of a light mode for the forums/blog?

Hiya - thanks for sharing your feedback on wanting to see a light theme; I'll do some investigating to see if there's a way we can provide you multiple style choices!

I believe there are also some handy-dandy extensions made by amazing community members that allow you to have more control over the style so you can adjust it to your liking - maybe someone else can chime in with an option like that for you!

What badges would you like?

I'd Love to see some badges for stuff in game, like beating a super hard boss or something like that. Possibly more hidden ones too, trying to make people participate more in the community rather than just the likes and comment badges.

These are some great ideas! What are you thinking along the lines of more "hidden" ones?

Forums versus Discord - Which do you prefer to get your game updates through?

Good to hear that the forums will actually get used this time around. That was a fairly large complain among people on the last forums. All the announcements were made on discord and the forums got forgotten.

As you may have seen, we've already been following this type of communication pipeline for the past few months. For our big announcements, we have posted them on our website and funneled them out to our social networks. ;)

Badges missing

Hi all - we've addressed the issue that was occurring with Badges yesterday, so your KickStarter and Summer backer Badges are now coming through correctly! If you still don't see them on your account, go ahead and try logging out and back in again on the forums to see them show up.

Feel free to keep replying/tagging me here if you still don't see Badges you think you should have based on your backer status!

I'm hoping the forums become as reliable of a news source as discord is with the new CM team @MargaretKrohn @LieutenantToast

It'd be nice to not have to be on discord at all, even as PI!

@tugowar - As with everything we do, we plan to have our Website and the Forums be our main sources of information and funnel that information out to our social networks - Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Discord, etc. ;)
