      I feel lucky to have checked my email, and then I saw this.

      Thanks for the Ancestral Vision mat!

      Maybe need to get with Backerkit and see if there are issues or just provide them feedback about the sluggishness. Shouldn't take this long for emails to get through. I'm a developer myself and work with this kind of stuff all the time. 7000 emails is not a lot of emails to send if done properly. To put it into perspective, most people here probably came from an email sent by Kickstarter to all the backers when this update was posted, which was sent out very quickly after the post was made.

      Was kinda a miracle that the survey finally popped up.

      Finally got my hands on an Ancestral Vision playmat. Whew!

      Backerkit is sending them out in batches, a few hundred every few minutes. We cannot do anything about this, please be patient.

      Attempted to log into Backerkit and received a message that my email was not found. Anyone else have this issue?

      The Backerkit website won't issue an email for you if you haven't gotten the first one yet. I tried!

      This post probably should have been postponed until enough time had passed for people to receive their emails, lol. I'm also in the group who has not received anything yet, but I'll give it till tonight and check again.

      Good to know they're going out at all, just a shame that so many people miss out on the chance to get the Ancestral Visions mat due to unforeseen technical difficulties.

      Another option if you are worried about the playmat is to go to backerkits website and force it to do a recovery email on your backing of the project.

      Currently I also have not received a backerkit email yet. Checked my spam folders as well prior to posting.

      Hello Guy/John - no email in my inbox from Backerkit yet

    17. Nicholas Fair on

      Looks like I haven't gotten an email yet~ Backer kit may take some time with a project this large? I just wanted to make sure I had everything lined up -!

    18. Sean Moran on

      Same as Greg. No email.

    19. John Avon Art 3-time creator on

      I am guessing that 7000 emails take time.....

      I tried to go onto Backerkit but it says "the project hasn't sent your survey out yet". You will receive an email when the project is ready.

    21. Greg on

      So much for grabbing that playmat...still nothing. Not in spam folder nor Backerkit Project account. Guess I'm SOL :(

    22. Colton White on

      Ditto what Greg said
