Jane, I see that we gave you access to the live stuff on may 26.  Are you saying that you still cannot see the live stuff?   Have you looked at the thread that contains the live stuff?  Specifically, look at the second post:  https://permies.com/wiki/65389

I recently worked with your support group to change my email on the forum due to some registration issues. They requested that I post here to check that all the other pieces are in place for the PDC / ATC. 
I funded the kickstarter at $150.  For what it's worth, I can see the live stream and access the chat.  The hidden forums appear to be accessible as well.
Also just FYI - using Opera on a Macbook Pro and the stream works fine for me.
Thank you!

Checking ....     checking ....  searching ....  

Here it is! 

Ha!  I see what you did there - it looks like you got burned by your own bit of clever. 

It looks like your account has had accedd since may 28.  Tell me what you see on the second post of this thread:  https://permies.com/wiki/65389 - you should be able to see the live stream.

I was finally able to change my email address to match the kickstarter email..  It has been confirmed - the email address change - however I still can not link the live feed and still looking for emails to link to the Goodies to see if they work now.  Still trying to work through.  My kickstarter was the Design level if that helps.



Looking.  It looks like your access was all squared away yesterday.  Please tell me what you see on the second post of this thread:  https://permies.com/wiki/65389 - it should be the live stream.

Thanks Paul.  I've been watching the live feed (Yea!).  But I also wanted access to your other (older) recorded stuff listed in the Kickstarter.

Hi Paul, like the others, I received the first email to inform me of my status with Kickstarter (pledged $200), but had no goodies email to follow up. I am already a member of Permies.com. The email wasn't in my trash either :C Keep up your good work! Look forward to tuning in when the blip has been ironed out

Paul (etc),  I can watch the PDC - but was looking for these:  rocket mass heater 8-DVD set as HD Streaming; world domination gardening 3-dvd set as HD Streaming.  Am I just missing a link somewhere on the thread?  Can't figure that part out.   Thanks!

Those parts of the rewards haven't been put up yet - Paul and the team are busy running the PDC and trying to get the live-streaming working for everyone.

There is a bunch of stuff that we haven't put up yet.   Technically, we have until july, so there is a lot of breathing room.

I think the big one right now is that the VPDC folks would like access to the teacher's notes.   I am waiting for jocelyn to have a moment to do her spreadsheet magic.

I could see the Last post but still the links to "Candy"   do not work, they lead me to link which wants payment.  Perhaps those links are not ready.  Some of the gifts have and x in front of them and most have o in front.  What is the difference.  Are they all available or not?  If they are avaialble they aren't being so for my computer.  Thanks.

So one of the things we did today was give people access to the hugelkultur micro doc: https://permies.com/wiki/37907

I am looking at the ledger and it shows that you currently have access to the premium content in that thread.  The first post has three images and then there is the video.  Do you see the video when you are logged in?

Hi! This time I looked on the 2nd thread it says: Inside this box should be the live stream.  If you pay for any box on this thread, it opens all the boxes.
I can also see a video box, which wasn't there before. However it says: Sorry, the live stream is offline now
So... I'll tune in again later and see if I can see something live   (I'm in China atm).
Thanks for persisting with me

You're in!

And, in my experience, when the stream is live it usually says "the live stream is offline now" and you have to click the button just below - and it takes a few seconds to get going.

Seems I am not able to get to the video feed today... It worked Friday, I was gone yesterday and today I can not even get the video screen.  Trying to go to tiny downloads or the live feed I am shown a screen I need to pay... I am signed in or so it looks when I click the my account button.  Nothing seems to know I am already a support at the Design Level.  Can someone help me get back on track so I can watch the Live session when it returns from lunch if it has not already?

Thanks for the recorded video links, I tested a few and they look great.
I also clicked the wrong lick that said not to get notifications, I do want notifications, the links looked similar upon speed reading them, but I didn't get an "are you sure, cause that would be really stupid" message, or any kind of confirm before being taken off the kickstarter list. so if you can disregard the not to get notifcations because I do want them. I would also suggest that you have a confirmation, or something to the effect of: are you sure you want to stop getting notifications, because that would be a dumbass thing to do? before getting to the no more notifications screen.

Leah,

Are you saying that before you signed out and signed back in, this thread was asking you to pay?
https://permies.com/wiki/65389

And what was the link to hugelkultur thread that you are trying to access?

Leah,

You have several people trying to help you, but as I try to figure out what is going on, I am very confused.  I think you are talking about two or three things at once.

For each issue, could you provide a link to the page that you are trying to access and tell us the problem with that page?

It sounds like you currently have access to the live stuff.   So that is all resolved, right?

Any chance of a screen shot?   I don't know about notifications, but we do have watches.

Hello,
So far I've got an e-mail with link to the hugelkultur microdocumentary and course notes from Tim Barker's part of the PDC as part of the kickstarter bundle, but nothing else.... I have just signed up to the forum following a prompt by "gir bot" to do so. I was then able to download said course notes and see the 15 minute video clip on hugelkultur construction.
Please keep me updated on what I should be able to see and how to get there...
thanks for you good work
have a nice day
Matthew

Thank You Paul,  I did get the link to the live feed last night.  I enjoyed it! Great Job to all getting the wireless backup and running.  One comment though it was almost impossible to understand questions from the participants.  Maybe you or someone has and extra mic that they can use while asking questions? 

I apologize for not seeming to be able to navigate the features of the website.  No! I have not been able to get downloads of things I think are already released.  I keep getting messages to buy them..  I purchased the Design Kickstarter with my son Jason.  He is a more long term active member with the group.   He is however in Europe and due to the time difference he wanted me to watch the classes. However, with all the time it is taking me to try and figure things out, the amount of all your great peoples time I watch and my time not being productive I was hoping you could let Jason deal with all these issues and get things running so I can get back to just paying attention to the speakers and watching the HD video's when I can?   He is Jason Learned and is a member of Permies.  (hope this does not change name again) 

Thank you and sorry for all the difficulties I am having navigating and following the forums.  I am not use to forums... this is really my very first time in dealing with forums and there are so many of them and I never seem to be able to get back to the same ones so I have so many windows open trying to keep track my computer is going sooooo sloooow....a crawl...

Hi guys,
thought I'd try again and be a bit more specific about what I can access and what I can't.

So, here goes;

When I follow this link: https://permies.com/wiki/65389/paul-wheaton/digital-market/PDC-ATC-video-hours-live
I'm invited to pay $200 via paypal to view the content

When I follow this link: https://permies.com/wiki/65387/paul-wheaton/digital-market/PDC-ATC-tiny-download-coming
I'm invoted to pay $150 to view the content

When I follow this link: https://permies.com/wiki/65386/paul-wheaton/digital-market/PDC-ATC-HD-instant-view
I'm invited to pay $125 to view the content

When I follow this link: https://permies.com/wiki/65383/paul-wheaton/digital-market/ATC-video-HD-instant-view
it's $80

and this one: https://permies.com/wiki/65385/paul-wheaton/digital-market/PDC-video-HD-instant-view
is $95

this one: https://permies.com/wiki/37907/digital-market/digital-market/Hugelkultur-Micro-Documentary-HD-streaming
allows me to view a 16 minute film about hugelkultur for free (no suggestion of having to pay on that page)

this one: https://permies.com/wiki/66379/digital-market/digital-market/Permaculture-Design-Teacher-Notes-Tim
thanks me for my purchase and allows me to download the course notes without asking me to pay (so clearly this one has got the message that I supported the kickstarter project)

I have received two e-mails from the girbot so far, one with a link to the hugelkultur microdocumentary, the other with a link for the course notes. The links to the actual course content videos I found by looking on this thread and when I click on them I am asked to pay for the content as I described above.

Hopefully I've given enough information to help you to help me?

Have a nice day!

Matthew Bucktrout, France

Matthew,

I can see that you have been added to the hugelkultur documentary and Tim's PDC notes.

For most of the other threads you mentioned, no one has been give the access yet.

Thanks for your reply Devaka,
looking just a few posts hgher up on this page I thought I'd understood that the kickstarter funders should at least be able to see live streaming instead of a box asking them to pay $200 - just a few posts up Paul said...

When I follow that link, there are just boxes asking me to pay $200 via Paypal. Surely if other Kickstarter funders have access to that Paul would have just said it wasn't operational for us yet??

Only asking because I'm actually physically out of action with a twisted knee at the moment and it might have been interesting to watch some of the course instead of doing accounts or something dull like that!  instead of being outside working.

have a nice day
Matthew
