    I got a response! Here's what was in the email I got:

    Hi there,

    Sorry for the delayed response, I don't have an exact date on when the next membership freebie is going out but I can assure you that these are still going to be sent out. The next one will be soon and everyone will be notified with more information as soon as the date is finalized. I know this has taken longer than it should have there has just been some issues along the way that have delayed everything and we do apologize for that. Keep an eye out for an update from us as there should be one sent out soon and thank you for your patience.

    Yup,I just got the same response from them. Sounds to me like they are still planning on making good with the freebies.

    Hmmm...curious what their response to my question will be since they wont be able to use that same one.

    I asked them when I would be able to sign up for the next year of paid membership. :3

    Just got my response, not the same reply others got (naturally because my question was different):

    Hi there,

    Sorry for the delayed response, I don't believe there will be registration up for the next year until everything has been handled. If you are a member already please keep an eye out for an update from us as we will have more information about the upcoming freebies and what not soon.

    Ah yes, the infamous SOON

    Would it be that hard to just tell us what they know? Either the stuff hasn't been made yet, or is on a boat, or stuck in port

    It's bascially this:

    Us: Our stuff has been delayed. Why?
    Them: Sorry for the delay, there is a delay.

    The entire concept has been delay after delay. How about those crystals?? How many more delays can they possibly have. Its put up or shut up time as far as Im concerned, so much talk and "plans" from them with little to back it up. Ive been on board this the concept from the start but wether they deliver on the rest of the freebies or not im dont until they prove they can meet consistent deadlines and actually implement all of the "ideas" they have been talking about for years now.

    Ah, Spence... Surely you can understand frustration and lashing out at this point. I don't want to seem selfish, as I know intitlement basically is a tangentially related desire for more. And that desire implies more sales and success of the brand. I would be more concerned when there is no more sense of entitlement. When a topic like this becomes void of any activity. We who still want to feel invested just feel like meh, whatevs... That's something that FPCore should be weary of. No?

    I don't disagree with you at all. I do understand frustration. What I don't understand is irrationality. It is one thing to be frustrated about something and expressing your frustrations but it is another to just be totally irrational about your frustrations.

    If you know of a certain pattern or procedure then why would you even be surprised at the continuation of that pattern? To then loose your marbles over that just seems silly. FPCore has promised the moon, sure. They have delivered on much if not all of what they said they have just in unacceptable time frames. To start demanding refunds, to start stating that nothing will come of this, to claim to have been cheated is just nonsense.

    It is great to see that there is still passion for FPCore, I just would like to see that passion be put towards a more positive outcome than just complaining and demanding money back.

    I have always said, you could be part of the problem or you can be part of the solution. I have yet to see anyone say that they sent an email to FPCore to find out if there was any way they could assist in getting things done, just emails with demands about where the hell is my free stuff.

    At this point you'd be better off trying eBay for this set.
