Not the biggest deal but I never got my mug from this campaign.
I haven't received any info on items... then again I wasn't in a specific hurry to get them.
Still haven't received the items I was promised. Personalized voice mail message and the other things. It's been a while. Would be nice to have an update.
A heads-up for everyone. I have spoken to someone on the subject. If you comment on here, they should be reaching out to you individually to answer questions and deal with concerns. If they don't, please let me know and I'll pester them about it personally. I see no reason why anyone's questions or concerns to go un-addressed. I may not have direct pull or influence, but I am more than capable of pestering the right people to get things handled. So, just let me know on here if you haven't been properly taken care of and I'll do what I can :)
Never did get what I was supposed to from backing this.
Remember the events that were supposed to happen? Good times.
I paid a lot for my pledge and haven't received my items. How do you get in touch with someone in line with customer support?
It has been 2 years now, and there are still things like the Donald Glover boat episode that haven't been done, or any apparent effort to do so. What gives?
Are pictures posted anywhere from the William Shatner Patrick Stewart event?
You can keep your free month subscription. I'll be going with ABC Mouse now.
While I am happy that this has taken off I am a bit disappointed that I paid 25 dollars and only get one month when the 1-month subscription being offered is 10 dollars. Seems as if backers got the short in of the stick. Usually, it's the other way around and backers get the perks.
Still waiting on my iTunes codes for the entire collection. (or for the entire collection to even be on iTunes...so far I see only 16 episodes of 152)
Never received my DIGITAL DOWNLOAD of the special Reading Rainbow Collector's Episode.
I never got my shirt :/
On the phone with Reading Rainbow for the school subscriptions. Norma, Caroline and Natalie. If there are any problems, let me know. I put down your names so we could get things together.
I'm not happy it's a subscription based model.
Donald Glover and LeVar on a boat.. was that already broadcast? I never got an email about it....
Still hoping I get an answer on my classroom dedication for my school. I haven't heard anything.
Is the Patric Stewart even in NYC ever going to happen? We're coming close to two years after I donated to Reading Rainbow, and while you all raised quite a bit of money, clearly, no one has paid much attention to fulfilling your promises.
I teach language arts at Van Buren Middle School in Albuquerque, NM. How can we apply for the Reading Rainbow Skybrary for our school?
will LeVar's 1/28 speech be posted online? I know it just happened today but I could not find it anywhere.
Where do I find the list of schools who got the free subscription?
@T.J. Brumfield who is going to pay developer costs, and maintenance? Also the creators of the lessons have to be paid, they use subscriptions to pay for continuing cost of developing more programs.
I think it should be free if feasible, but you just might get popups like wikipedia asking for donations for maintenance.
I get that end users at home will pay for this, but why isn't this free for all classrooms?
Sent an email about my classrooms. Hopefully get an answer soon.
I received all the items I requested. My wife, son and I all wear our t-shirts with pride.
Waiting to on my 3 sky library classrooms still
So I never got my reward, even though Kickstarter said I did... who do I contact to discuss this?
Got the adopt a classroom sky library access! When will the personalized videos go out?
Has anyone heard about the NYC event dates yet?
Anyone know how to get the collector's episode? Was reviewing my pledge rewards and there was a special collector's episode we were supposed to get. Digging through all my RR emails I couldn't find any info on it.
Donald Glover and LeVar on a boat Update??
I had 3 adopt a classroom and I no longer work for the school but I want to give it to them but at his rate they might not get it until the following year. Luckily I'm doing my dissertation work at the school still. So, I'm in contact with the staff.
Great Job! From a project creator to another project creator... Thanks to be here and make it happen! :) you rock!!!!!
I am also in the adopt a classroom bucket. My son is in grade 3. It was aimed at grades 2 and 3. I'm going to feel horrid if he is out of the classroom before it arrives.
Still waiting on the Adopt a classroom package. No emails....no updates...no answers...I ask for updates about once a month. Get the response "it will roll out next month" answer... I dont know what to do anymore. If you guys are legitimately behind why not update the people that backed you?
It says it shipped Jan 20 of this year but I never received anything. =(
Hi! I never received my rewards. Who do I contact about this?
I still haven't received anything from what I backed. The book. The thirty etc?
I think this whole thing is a sham and I for one am totally disappointed. I will never give money to this project again and I feel really let down. The starter pack didn't give me what was promised and I thought the whole idea was to bring Reading Rainbow back. Where is it? I'm done. This is just another way for you guys to get money out of people. Shame on you!!!!
I never claimed the free month subscription or any of the media backer rewards. Can they just be donated to a classroom?
I am a backer and went and looked at my survey, because I haven't gotten anything yet, and I realized that my backer survey has the wrong house number on it. Is there anything I can do or am I out of luck?
Been waiting on the classroom accounts myself. Thought we were supposed to have them by October and its almost November.
I just received an email regarding the live event with Patrick Stewart, and it said tickets were limited, but gave no way to reserve a ticket! How can I do that--I can get to LA in November, but before I schedule the trip, I need to know there is a reason to go!
@Patrick B. me too and as far as I know, nothing ever happened...
Just wondering when the "provide free access to classrooms in need" part of this project might start? My wife's school, I believe, would most likely qualify as being "in need." Is there an application process for this?
I was a backer for the adopt-a-classrooms option. E-mailed support back in August asking what was going on and they said "the EDU service would roll out next month" but that didnt happen I guess. It would be nice if they sent out updates instead of backers having to beg for them. I was really hoping to have the service available for the class this year.
Did the Donald Glover thing ever happen? I backed $15 just to see that and haven't received a single thing so far.
FYI, I got my signed artist print yesterday, for anyone who's interested.
I don't have the RR stuff to look at, but I can tell you that (based on Kung Fury, which was also released to backers via VHX) the format shouldn't be an issue for tablets (mp4 format is pretty universal). Also worth noting is that downloading ~155 episodes is a huge time commitment, regardless (using Kung Fury as reference again, at the smallest download resolution 155 episodes would be over 40GB, roughly enough to fill a standard bluray. At 25Mbps internet speeds that would take roughly 4 hours to download, and not everyone has internet that fast). What kind of tablet do you use?
