I'm not sure where to put this thread to I simply left it here. Please move it if you feel like it should go elsewhere.

So, the website says to get in touch with Thom via a contact form in case you want a free copy of the game to run at a convention, or to get a refund in case you paid for a copy for this purpose. We're looking to run an event at a local library using 4+ bridges and because the laptops all belong to the library, their IT crowd needs to install and manage everything themselves. Naturally, they're looking to get their own copy of the installer. For this purpose I used the contact form to state our case and ask for a free copy. I wanna say it's probably been at least two weeks at this point and so far no reply.

Is there anyone who can help out? Michael maybe?

Thom posts as "techbear" on this forum. Search for one of his posts, click on his name to get to his profile, and then try the "Email techbear" link.

If that doesn't work... either Mike or myself will scold him next time we run into him to check his website feedback.

Thanks, I just sent him an email via the forum. I realize that it may take a few days because of holidays. I'll post an update in a few days to keep you in the loop.

Oh no! Darrin and I saw Thom Saturday but we didn't know you were still having trouble contacting him.

I don't remember him giving away free copies for those purposes. Can you please post a link to that?

In any case I would expect Thom to respond. I will nudge him next time our paths cross.

Thanks for the reply, Mike.

In the FAQ there is a section about licensing, in which Thom explicitly says that "educational situations" can make their case via the contact form. I would argue that a public library is educational, especially if the library is not being rented as a location but is looking to run this nonprofit event on their own. Additionally, under "other" Thom states that charity events looking for free give-away software can make their case via the contact form. Both the public library and the gaming club I'm a member of (and which was asked by the public library to provide volunteers to help run the event) are nonprofit, charitable organisations.

Either way, Thom said to make our case, which we did. We just never heard back from him.

I have Thom right here next to me. I have shown him your message. He has read your message. So I can verify that he has seen it, and he is aware of what you are asking for. 

According to Thom: "Yes, he's asking for an educational license. I tend to let those stack up, and then process them in batches. Tell him I will respond to him by the end of the weekend."
