Where does the founders project stand?

I signed up on November of 2015 to be a founder.  In that time I've tried to help by providing commentary on the monthly updates, dutifully reading/looking/listening to each component.  It was fun and interesting.


Then keys finally started going out. I patiently waited to be selected, even when I was told it would not be fun, but rather choppy technical stuff needing to be dealt with.  It's been months now since those keys went out, and I've seen nothing about getting one.  I tried doing the Skype thing for info and to feel contributory, but that quickly showed itself to be not-my-thing, since I have very limited time, and only want to be on-task with SC:O (It's not a social project for me).


I have no clue what discord is, nor do I want to learn. I deleted Skype.  I check the forums, and nothing new is ever on here except for the occasional tester opinion.


I'm trying to be involved in this project, since I did pay money up front for that privilege, but after 1.5 years of waiting to play something of this, I'm so tired.  I understand there are multiple projects going on at your studio, but I've been told for 18 months that "SC:o, your time is coming once we finish "x" project."  Ironically, I've not heard a drop of anything since then. 


This is rambly, and I apologize for that, but basically it comes down to this:

I paid money and was excited for the privilege of being a part of SC:o early

I've waited patiently for 18 months to do some playtesting or something

There's no communication outside of a few early key-recipients

I'm still interested in the project, but have a hard time justifying following it when I'm getting practically nothing in return


Stardock and SC, sad and expectant.
