Hi,

Does anyone know if Publisher Services Inc. is the shipper for this game? I ask because I just got ... umm ... about 260 UPS ship notifications from PSI, only one of which is for me. The only thing I can think of is that this is for D-Day Dice, since I am not expecting anything else and my address is new.

You're probably a Line for Life supporter, who get such an incredible amount of product it had to be split into 260 packages.

Well, anyways, if it IS DDD, perhaps some useful info from the 20 emails or so I did open:

Many East Coast and Midwest orders seem to be slated for delivery on 7/6. Some New England orders are marked as 7/9 or later, as are most West Coast orders.

Just to be on the safe side: Those shipping notices went to your email, but the shiping addresses themselves are not all yours?

Exactly. I have ~260 shipping notices in my email. All are for different people/addresses. Only one is my address.

You live close to me, so when's yours scheduled to arrive?

Well, I was just looking at the kickstarter page and technically there are 325 Line-for-life backers. That includes the multiple copy line for lifers.

Have you contacted Rik about the emails?

No, as I am not sure these are even for DDD. I have seen at least one name in the emails that match the list of supporters on the KS site, but I was hoping for some sort of confirmation.

I am not a line-for-life supporter, so that shouldn't be it ...

I got about 400 notices. After checking for my notice, it does seem like these are for D-Day Dice.

400! Worse than me.

I've confirmed some more overlap in supporter names and emails, so I'm sure this is DDD related at this point.

I have three concerns about this:

A) The sheer volume of extra email is annoying, although this is a relatively minor issue.
B) I now have the real names and addresses of some 260 people, who presumably did not want their info shared in this way. And many people possibly have my information, depending on what happened.
C) This means that many people might not get their shipping notices at all, making it impossible for them to track their packages.

Overall, it seems like an easy-to-make error (due to automated processes) but a pretty grievous one (for privacy reasons).

I agree. I messaged Rik through Kickstarter to give him a heads up about this issue and a link to this thread.

I don't mind as long as you pass along my tracking number to me

FWIW, I have yet to receive any emails.

That's the thing I was worried about, that I wouldn't get my shipping notification in case something happened to the package. I would definitely like to know if I'm on one of the lists, but the possibility of my personal info being sent out in such a fashion is making me worry.

Although a Christmas card would be nice.
