I guess I just don't find the thread where this is discussed. I'm not trying to hurry anyone, I'm just curious - did the automata that sends the 2011 supporter badge bonus stop after users with the letter 'a' because of some kind of error or it just takes lots of time? It seems to me users starting with 'a' have already got their bonuses while 'b' and so on did not.

The DB is probably just a little hung over from New Year's. As soon as it has a glass of OJ and some waffles, it'll be fine.

Well, not knowing what order the is handed out in:

It hasn't hit usernames starting with y
It has hit users who first signed up about June 2011
It hasn't hit users who paid for their 2011 badge after December 6th.

If its using any of those approaches, I know I'm down on the list.

Likewise, it doesn't appear to be triggered by the first time you check your subscription page during the year, or the first thread post, or geeklist item comment. If the system was set to give to users on the site and doing things so that they aren't going "where is it?", but I see how that would be much harder to implement (without any bugs).

This "A" is a no show. But I don't need it so I'm OK.

Hasn't hit 'M's either yet. Maybe the admin has yet to deliver them all?

Is still recovering from Christmas. Let's give him a few days off before he sets off on his mission to deliver the bag

The only reason why I asked is that he seemingly set off on the 1st as he did deliver the bag to usernames starting with 'a' but no other users.

I am developer at a website where many automatic programs send dozens of thousands of e-mails, change credit balance numbers etc. It does happen once in a while when some problem stops the run of these automatic programs and only the first hundreds or thousands of the tasks are done. I can see 'a' users got the but didn't find any 'b' users - I was wondering if it happened because some automatic program failed at some point or it is just scheduled like this.

That's kind of cool that your anniversary is on (or real close to) New Years. Happy anniversary!

EDIT: 143.3 GG was just delivered straight to my inbox. Nice.

I was just wondering, if the GG is for all suporters regardless of the amount donated, and if there are still people receiving GG? If so the order of priority for the delivery of the GG is still not clear. Thank You Very Much to this great Web Page and community.

I am not 100% sure, but I believe you need one of these pretty boxes with the number "11" in it. I could be mistaken though.
