Stop pointing at Rakel. Might be that Rakel is the only one who really knows how to use all the monkey name gizmos, and she was deep in the holidays already. It was probably the janitor and/or other resident technophobe who sent out the update.
Still didn't receive a thing, all spam folders checked... this one's not coming.
Merry Christmas anyway!
Just wanted to point out that I never intended to "point at Rakel", at least not in a negative way.
Ragnar has now explained how their information flow works. And that confirmed all of my theories about how it worked. But since I didn't know before he wrote it, I couldn't just say how I thought it worked.
But yeah, the only reason why I mentioned Rakel here, was to explain the "Ragnar posts all the information, Rakel deals with PayPal backers, Rakel is on holidays (as she should be), paypal backers gets the short straw because Ragnar can't easily send those e-mails to the paypal backers" that I thought was the likely culprit, and which has now been confirmed by Ragnar. That was not meant to point fingers, because I thought people would read it and be forgiving when they imagined for themselves how it worked. And that I didn't really think it was a "mistake or oversight" but more of a "focus on the easiest and most feasible information channels" thing.
So again, not blaming Rakel at all! If anyone thought that's what I was doing.
Edit: And about the social media thing; I do think it's an advantage that Ragnar does it all himself. The facebook&twitter things are easily posted, as he said, without having to double check and ask people (which would be Ragnar, most likely). We moderators (and other forum users) post things here on the forum, and then there aren't really that many more channels that needs to be posted to. It gets around pretty fast, and I feel it is working quite well.
Maybe a dedicated person could put out more of the "small social fun things" kind of updates. But for that to work, the person would have to be around RTG at a regular basis. At the release party, and some other gatherings, I've put myself in the position of being that "social media person" by posting pictures etc (helped by Silje++), and I feel that worked quite well. But in those situations, I would probably be more stressed out if those pictures were directly posted on RTG's twitter account and not mine. So I'd be all "hey Ragnar, look at this picture, should I post it? what should I say? can you click send for me?" probably
Anyway, I'm always happy to help when I can!
