Kickstarter symbol on forums

I've noticed some folks now have the green K, which I assume is the Kickstarter perq for anyone who contributed.

Are you folks still in the process of assigning these, cuz mine hasn't shown up yet.

Spurn all ye kindle.

Still working on it. We

Still working on it. We originally planned on using the perks cart to auto-assign these for the forum title we promised back in February, but the module has never worked right. So, rather than waiting longer to give you all your forum titles who donated, a small team decided on assigning them manually. We are right now processing those who had their emails the same here as for the Kick starter, then we will send put a mail to get those who we missed.

Realize that we are hand checking 5003 email addresses by hand. This will take awhile so we ask patience. Note that is a placeholder logo as well while the art team finishes up the graphics.

We had planned on doing it

We had planned on doing it back in February. But, it took a back seat to other more critical systems. Figured three months was long enough to wait.

You might be able to use the

You might be able to use the Drupal feeds module to update those fields in bulk on users if it is something that sets a field on the account. I think you'd have it list the emails in one column, then the next column what the flag is to be set to. Then feeds would be set to import that csv or xml file, set to update only and map to the accounts using the email as the key to match to.

Also you might be able to insert the updates into the database backend. Again if it is a field, the database in Drupal should have something like field_data_field_kickstarter table with an entity field and the value. The entity field would be the user id from the users table that has the emails you can match against.

what we have done is set up a Kickstarter Backer role and then used a modified Drupal Badges module for the actual title and icon work. May just work.

I haven't done a mass update

I haven't done a mass update for user roles with feeds, would have to look into it. This addon module looks promising to accomplish what you are trying to do: https://drupal.org/project/feeds_ridmap

It should be possible though to add a role on the backend with the user_roles table that links the numeric id of the user with the numeric id of the role - bit of a hack if you only need to do it once. If you need to do updates in the future more often like this, feeds or REST interface with an ESB would be a lot nicer for a permanent setup to pull/push.

I can certainly understand!

I can certainly understand! Murphy can show at the worst times. I am decent coding, mobile responsive design for Drupal websites but not the best hand at the graphical portion of theming. Hopefully you have a good team on hand to handle the website buildout and secure linking to the rest of the MMO infrastructure. PCI compliance can also be a real pain once you start taking recurring subscriptions. I could probably volunteer some hours if you need another minion in this area.

"Bizarre gardening accident"? Is that what we're now calling the trap clowns?

Incidentally, in case it makes any difference, I changed the e-mail associated with my forum account to the one I used for the Kickstarter.

Will they come in out emails? I ask because while my email is easily recognizable as "me", I have a rather strong spam filter that you guys have fallen victim to before.

I think they are just using their Kickstarter email list as a way to work through who still needs to have the Kickstarter symbol applied to their forum account. My Kickstarter symbol just automagically appeared a day or two ago and I never got any email about it one way or the other.

If you used the same email to sign up on the forums and for the kick starter they won't send anything; if they are different then they will contact you.

Yeah that makes sense - that's apparently what I did now that I think about it.

This is it precisely.

Right now it is hammering out the low-lying fruit, as it were: those who have the same email here as for the kickstarter. Once those are out of the way, we can then begin emailing the rest.

Actually, we noticed multiple people who have not logged in here for months, so we're going to email everyone from kickstarter who has the badge asking them to login and verify that they have it, hoping that they then take a moment to then also look around and catch up.

*sigh* Its times like this that I wish I had kept closer tabs on my email account. Missed the chance to donate. Now I'm going have to hear every random forumite who donated gush about how long they have been with the project. Don't you guys go getting big heads now :-P

For those of us who donated the amount to gain 2 accounts with all the perks, will the 2 account also gain the kickstarter badge?

Correct, but we need to get the serial code system working first for that.
