Backer Rewards

Posted by Maxwell Salzberg (Creator)

Hey Everyone,

Good news. Last week, we sent out all of the orders for the tee shirts, stickers and CDs to the fulfillment company to get shipped out. Hopefully they will get to you all soon. For those of you who submitted your backer survey* slightly after the September 17th deadline, we will try our best to get them out to you in as soon as we can.


Maxwell, Raphael, Ilya and Daniel

* You would have gotten a backer survey if you requested rewards when you pledged. If you don't remember getting a survey, check your spam folder.

      Hi, I'm a backer, but don't have any info on how to get an invite to the alpha.

      Can anyone help out?

      I haven't received mine either...and I DID fill out the survey before it was due! It's been over two months since you shipped things out to the fulfillment company...where's my stuff?

    9. Joshua Karjala-Svendsen on

      I still haven't received my swag.

      They got $200k from us. Why should they respond? Chalk this up to "lessons learned."

    15. Jamie Bradway on

      I need to add my name to the list, too. I received the survey and filled it out immediately, but have still not received the t-shirt and stickers. Has anyone received word back from the diaspora team about these complaints?

    16. Stephen Starkey on

      I filled out the backer survey, but got nothing for my money. What is up with that?

      As I posted earlier, I am also a contributor who doesn't recall getting a survey. Following the link in the message that can be found here somewhere gives a 404. It would be nice if one of the "team" could take an interest and respond.

    20. Nicole Maron on

      I don't recall receiving a backer survey, and all my old spam is gone by now. What did I miss?

      I found my backer survey, but get a 404 error when I click the link. Please let me know how to get my rewards, I assumed they would be coming automatically after I gave my $25 & thought I gave my mailing info then.


    22. Jonathan Chowdhury on

      Didn't receive the survey and I have emailed Kickstarter and Diaspora three times about this and no response, and there is nothing in my spam folder!

    23. Simon Starr on

      All the messages to backers, including a couple about the survey and one with the t-shirt design, can be found here: or by clicking the 'Updates' tab at the top of this page.

      I don't seem to have a survey, have searched all mail folders.

      Checked my spam folder and all the rest of them and I don't see a survey. That doesn't mean that I didn't fill it out but I don't remember filling one out. FAQ say I should have received a message on Kickstarter that information was required for fulfillment purposes but I don't see that either.

      Add me as a backer who has no record of receiving a survey. I've tried sending in my address via other means, but haven't gotten any acknowledgment.

    27. Neil Krupnick on

      Don't see a survey in any mailbox. Hmmn...

    28. Hanns Tappen on

      Wondering about the tee shirt design. Actually haven't seen a preview.

      "Also, the tee shirt design is almost done, so we will be giving you a preview of the final design before we ship it out.!" (Sep 9)

      By the way, did you receive my backer reward survey? Yes, I want the stuff - thanks!

      Maybe it's just me, but I don't care even a tiny bit about tee shirts or stickers or whatever, why not skip all that and put the money into the project?

      I'm in the same boat as those above me. I never received anything in my spam folder either.

    31. Chris Laycock on


      Me too, still not had one. In the same boat as David but don't want to add my home address to thye comments field.
      Can you please send me the backers survey?
