    We're play times a thing back in alpha? I seem to remember it being only key players, i'm probably remembering wrong though.

    Play times were in most of alpha, although it wasn't too exciting, just fishing and potions.

    Looked at the site, it was 30k, close enough lol. I still think that is too many also founders should be for like the earliest only that's why I think it should be keys only. But if you even played in alpha you should at least get a silver one to be recognized.

    They probably won't know which keys are which, because alpha keys turned into beta keys.

    They can tell by if they redeemed the key during or after alpha.

    I was saying the people saying that Alpha Key people should get Silver Badges. I think they can't tell who got Alpha Keys and who got Beta Keys, since they both merged into a beta key.

    Personally, I want a silver coin or token for alpha and gold for beta, whichever color would be assigned to whichever one is fine but what I think is gonna happen is what happened in the original potco. Also this thread is gonna get taken down we already have a big thread on the same topic

    Just give them to Key Holders. I mean a lot of us played for days even weeks trying to get a key and only a handful got a key. Only give the ones who earned them and not given to them. It's the only way i see past this problem.

    I never 'earned' my key though, I just shot a scorpion in the normal course of questing and there it was. If it's going to be a lottery, make it a whole new draw. Key holders have already had their glory days.

    Why not rank players for this by value of bug reports submitted?

    Well Founder wouldn't make sense if it were to be given due to number of reports.

    It would in the sense of 'a person who establishes an institution or settlement' - solid assistance with the tracking of bugs is the closest beta test players come to being part of the development effort.

    They probably don't have useful metrics for that though, so maybe just most hours played during alpha/beta? That would be a better measure of dedication than whether you lucked into a key or not, while still advantaging key holders to some degree.

    This is the best idea, so it is fair to everyone. Because I don't see how they will know of everyone that helps in game. Not everyone belongs in a popular guild or hangs out in Abassa. There are holes in almost every other idea where someone might get left out. If they are going to do something, the above idea is the best one, and fairest.

    Just my 2 cents, honestly, imho, founders would be those from the start of potco, not tlopo.

    EDIT: Actually, the "founders" should probably be the folks that have brought this game back from the dead. Bravo to them!

    Maybe an aside: It would be nice to have some sort of badge for mastering a pirate though (with at least 3 weapons mastered as well), afterall it is a long tough road. Also a badge next to ship's name for mastering sailing would be fun too.

    That is a good point, but as with most of these ideas... How do you automate that? No-one has Disney's old account databases.
