I know, the surveys and reward levels ended up being pretty complicated, and I made you do the math. Next time I do a campaign, I'm going to try to have my own survey system going, where you can go back and change it, and it'll have better error checking, and other sexy things.
However, in the meantime, I've not been idle! I've rewritten my order management system (so far so good, I think), and this time around, you should expect two email messages. The first one will be sent to you at least two days before your order ships out (probably a lot more than two days), and it will contain a copy of your invoice so you can double-check that you're getting what you thought you were getting, or wanted to.
The second one will be like my last campaign; a message telling you that your order's in the mail.
Looking over what I've gotten so far, I gotta admit, I'm impressed how many people got their pledge and their selected rewards to match up, even on some of the bigger and more complicated rewards. I think most of the ones that don't match are due to the fact that, when I asked "How many blahblahblah do you want?" some people answered "one" or "n/a" or something else that, alas, my computer doesn't understand. It knows what to do with "0" or "4", but "four" absolutely mystifies it. (Another reason I want to build my own survey pages.)
Anyway, just wanted to let you know you'll have a chance to check your work before I send you anything.
