Epilogue, Acknowledgements, DW3 Speculation & Organisation

They're being sent out in batches with the decal code, and will come via the email address people submitted to the arrivals form. Over 2,200 players have submitted forms so far, so it may take a little while to work through them.
Thanks for the prompt reply. I understand how busy you must be, so no problem with the delay. One thing that concerns me; I looked at the roster just now and discovered that I am not recognized with a "Yes" as having reached BP. I have been here for two weeks. Is this normal?

Again, many thanks for your efforts and a completely enjoyable experience!

The Beagle Point column on the roster has nothing to do with arriving there on DW2. That column represents a question that was asked on the fleet sign up form, and was asking whether the sign up had previously visited BP on other expeditions or personal journeys prior to DW2.

It was part of the statistics we gathered on how many veteran explorers were signing up to the expedition.
 
DW3 'Fake' News

"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"

Please be aware of people who have no association with DW attempting to use the Distant Worlds Expedition name to drum up publicity for their own events. This happened in the wake of DW1, and may happen again in the wake of DW2. (Update 15-May-2019: The latest attempts being via Reddit).

Although the "Distant Worlds Expedition" label isn't an IP, it was the name I decided upon for the sequel to the Distant Suns Expedition of 3301, and through a lot of hard work and dedication it has become part of a series of successful community-created expeditions since then;

Distant Suns 3301
Distant Worlds 3302 (DW1)
Distant Worlds 3305 (DW2)

If Distant Worlds 3, or any other "Distant Worlds" Expedition is to take place, it will be organised by the people who created DW1 and DW2, so please disregard any 'organisation' discussion that is posted by anyone else (like in the Reddit example linked above). As was the case on the previous events, community discussion for a future DW expedition will come via a thread that I will set up and post in the Frontier Exploration Forum, and only when the timing is right (as outlined below).
wow I can't believe someone is trying to organize DW3, and its someone who wasn't even part of your team Erimus. You should report him to Frontier.
 
Finally safely touched down at Colonia after some last minute tension getting interdicted a few times, thanks for the escort CMDRs Qianas and Reverend TZW!

Has been such an epic journey, seen some awesome things. When I started playing ED a week or so before the expedition started, after hearing about it and rushing to cobble together enough credits for a DBX, I can safely say I had no idea what I was letting myself in for!

I have enjoyed every bit, what an amazing experience, even the slight mishap of finding myself stranded enroute to Salome's Reach :( but the best part about it all was sharing the journey with all of you. Thanks to all, especially my fellow DW3S CMDRs and of course Erimus, Dr Kaii and all of the DW2 team for their hard work organising such a memorable event. Fly safe out there!
 
I have received the email with the key for the decal, thank you!

I have successfully applied the decal key to my account, although as I am still at Beagle Point I won't be able to see it until I touchdown in the bubble. :)

The certificate is a really nice touch. I wasn't expecting the certificate (I had forgotten it was mentioned we might get one) so it was a really nice surprise. Very well done with a fantastic looking design. I will definitely get it framed and put it on the wall.

Thank you once again to everyone who organised DW2, thank you to the people supporting the expedition (Fuel Rats, Hull Seals and the Defence Force), thank you to Frontier for an awesome game, and thank you to those that took part.

It was a wonderful experience, which is still not over for me as I start to make my way home.
 
With the last mass jump today I am finally jumping out, the expedition is now over and I'm exhausted from all the partying grins

Freedom! here I come! It's been a lot of blasts :D
Thanks to @Erimus Kamzel and @drkaii for coming up with all of this, thank you @ThatMykl for creating the Radio and letting me be a part of it, thank you @Alex Brentnall, @Rixxan , @Drebin Omega , Noodle Impatas and all the others for making the Hull Seals into what they are, thank you @Henkka77 for getting me in touch with awesome people I didn't know before, thank you @Der Zeitgeist for organising the mass jumps, thank you @Corbin Moran for the formation flying, thank you @Huskeer42 for rescuing me from orbit, thank you Dystopia for flying out and repairing my alt at the most remote location, thank you @Qohen Leth for not kicking me off the discord :p (and many other things), thank you @Chankk Saotome for helping me with my first POI ever, thank you @Polish Dan and Jake P for teaching me alot about mining, thank you @Luna Valenwood for giving me combat disctration in multicrew, thank you everyone else who suffered my presence :D

Please keep the expiry date of reaching Beagle open - Im 50 jumps from the base prior to Beagle and then I have to get to Beagle. Being a dad and working full time, Ive spent as much time as I can on the game, every day - I had a 2 week break a couple of weeks ago as I have other games I needed to play and now with an expiry date, Im trying to squeeze every jump in that I can - seems a rush when there's all those lovely planets to visit and scan and take photos of.

Will I get a DW2 patch automatically once I reach Beagle or do I have to apply for it? Im on ps4 so..

PSA: I arrived on the 24th. Made sure I logged in. Reported my arrival properly on the form.
Then I saw folks reporting they had gotten their codes. So I looked and looked. And waited....
And then I checked my spam folder in Gmail and guess what I saw????
Not sure why google would mark a nice email from Dr. Kaii as spam especially since I got all the other emails, newsletter stuff.
Just odd. So if you're in waiting mode, make sure you check your spam catcher...

You'll need to fill the Arrival form in the OP of the Arrival thread.
