Good evening, everyone! As we all know, Mad Science sometimes has catastrophes that take place, and today we discovered that our own experimentation with the laws of Charity physics may have a tiny issue.
We discovered today that Child's Play's servers have been dropping Minecraft usernames with underscores in them (for instance, Can_Vox would have been dropped). Earlier today we rolled out a fix to the donation system to let NEW underscore donors get Early Access, but if you'd already donated at that time, you won't be able to play tomorrow afternoon!
But worry not, there is a solution! Go to http://donate.technicpack.net/ - we've added a place for you to verify that your Minecraft user has early access, and if your user does NOT have access, the site will link you to a form you can fill out so that we can GIVE you early access! This only applies to people who've donated $5 or more to Child's Play! If you haven't donated, you can get Early Access by doing so!
So if you've donated, head over to http://donate.technicpack.net/ RIGHT NOW and get the ball rolling on your Early Access! Hopefully we can get all this trouble cleared up by pack launch and it will be like none of this ever happened.
P.S. For some this might not be an option, but if you don't want to wait for us to approve your donation fix, you can always donate 5 more dollars to charity, we promise it will work this time!
