When you first make the account on the forum there are no automatic checks for the badges, so the badge won’t be available right away.
In order to enable the badges for the new users I need to manually run the script that makes the import and I’ll do that once a day. We chose to do this because we don’t want to keep the backers list somewhere on the site due to security reasons.
If 24 hours have passed since you made the account and you still don’t have the option to enable the badge in your profile, please send me a PM and let me know so I can further investigate on what the problem might be.
For the users that used different mails for the forum account and the Indiegogo contribution we’ve added a new field: Indiegogo Contributor Email in the My Account section. In order to get your forum backer badge please introduce in that field the mail address that you used for the Indiegogo contribution. (NOTE: This is necessary only for the users that have different mails, if you used the same mail for both accounts you don’t have to introduce the mail in the Indiegogo Contributor Email field).
