I sent out the 707 emails just now. If you subscribed on this site before 2011/05/10 and you didn’t get a mail from firstname.lastname@example.org asking you to re-confirm your Early-Access Beta registration, check your spam folder. Since sending the mails a few minutes ago, 31 people (including me) have re-confirmed.
Oh, here’s the email if you’re curious:
Subject: Please re-confirm your SpyParty Early-Access Beta registration!

Hi Chris Hecker,
The good news is you’re near the front of the line for the SpyParty
Early-Access Beta! Out of over 8,000 registrations, you’re somewhere in
the first 707.
The bad news is you have to re-confirm your registration to keep your place
in line. Luckily, this isn’t very bad news, because it just means you have
to click a link, which I think you’ll agree–as far as bad news goes–isn’t
Why do you have to do this? Because you signed up on the SpyParty website
long before I’d figured out how I was going to run the Early-Access Beta,
and even before I’d decided to do a beta. Specifically, you signed up
before I decided to charge money to participate in the beta to help fund
SpyParty, and I want to make sure everybody who’s signed up has the same
expectations about the invitation process.
I explain in more detail in this blog post:
I’ve posted the pricing information here:
And there’s more general information about the Early-Access Beta here
(note, you shouldn’t sign up on this page, you’re already signed up):
So, if you’ve read all that, and you are sure you still want to be invited
into the SpyParty Early-Access Beta, then just click this link:
If you’re no longer interested in participating in the beta, that’s totally
fine too, just ignore this mail.
