Hey, I donated in spring 2010 because I found the Diaspora vision compelling. Shortly before Christmas I received an invitation to try the beta, which I did. Since Diaspora didn’t yet appear to be of much use then (I' not blaming anyone; I’m a software engineer and know what the D team is up to) I hadn’t come back until now.
The thing is: I cannot sign in anymore since I forgot the login I chose. When I try the “Forgot your password?” option at https://joindiaspora.com/users/sign_in, filling in my supporter’s email address, I get the screen “The change you wanted was rejected.”.
I tried signing up for another invite, however, after confirming it I am taken to a screen saying “Thank for your interest in Diaspora. We will send you a Diaspora invite as soon as we reach beta!”
How can I sign in or set up a new account? I would be surprised if I should not have the chance of continuing to try out Diaspora right now. As someone who sponsored the initial bid for development I feel at a loss. (As an aside: news mailings about progress have been discontinued a long time ago, blog news postings are more than vague, and I am beginning to ask myself where those 200 grand have gone.)
I would be happy if the original developers could be more open and upfront about how and where things are going, especially towards supporters. And, of course, I would like to sign in.
