Are you registered as a Starship Captain yet?
If you followed these instructions to add the list app to your profile page, and listed at least ten pyramid games you know how to play, then you are an officially registered Starship Captain and are eligible for a free membership card! Request Membership Card
You can check to see if you are registered via this Starship Captain Search tool... if you were one of the first few Starship Captains who signed up, you may not find yourself on this list, because you originally listed your games in the text of your profile and never came back and installed the app that drives the roster. Please go add the app to your profile page before you request your membership card.
... and if you don't want to be listed on the public roster of Starship Captains - just edit your list of pyramid games on your profile page and uncheck 'Include me on the public roster'.
It will be a few weeks before we are ready to start shipping out the coins and membership cards - but please go send in a request for your card. Thanks for joining the Academy of Starship Captains!
Being one of the early captains, I added the tool per the instructions. But I still don't find myself on the SCSearch tool, when I search on my zip code. What else do I need to do?
You just need to wait for us to go in and approve your list... but the lights are flickering, so it might not be today! Just go ahead and sign up, and order your membership card, and the search will start finding you soon. Thanks!
OK. I hope Sandy does no serious damage to you and yours, or to anyone else within its range (which is quite large!). We're fine so far here.
I'm on now; thanks.
Doing some browsing led to a lot of questions:
- Is 50 miles the only US search option? Changing the radius, or searching by state, might be nice.
- Are there really so few SCs outside the US?
- If the zip code is relevant only for US search, it would help to hide (or disable and gray out) that field.
Is that app a new thingie, or I just missed the memo earlier? :)
I did it back in the "old days" via a plain text list in a "text box" profile element, but I have now installed the app and added some games.
It would be neat if (like "hot 10" and "top 10" at boardgamegeek.com) it was easy to move a title up or down in the list (shifting the others automatically). I suppose (perhaps erroneously) that there's some intent that they're sorted in order from games one most enjoys...?
It is nice that we can add more than 10 games!
I look forward to the Starship Captain search tool working internationally as well. :)
The app's not new but the Starship Captain search functionality is! Glad you were able to add it with no problem.
So, for the "Coin Order Number" I used the Confirmation Number from the order I placed for the coin, but I had to take out the hyphen because the Membership Card form insisted on strictly numeric characters for that field. Hope that was the right way to do it.
That should be just fine. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
So when I originally notices the email I distinctly remember seeing a request for an order number but now I am not seeing any mention of this at all. I could be blind or did it get removed?
No, you're not blind. We removed it to make the process easier for everyone.
Sorry for the confusion!
This. This now makes my Looney Labs experience complete (well except for someday successfully taking Andy down in homeworlds haha).
feeling stupid. I added the App, but I don't see where to add games to the list.
I've been a startship Captain from the start. I have tried clicking on EDIT for the box where the app put itself, and I have also tried clicking on the My Starship Captain List. I get a screen with a text box that says "No games selected" . I don't see where to add games.
