Because the Square Enix members website account is not directly tied to your Square Enix online gaming account.  Yeah, not kidding.

If I were you guys I wound't wait for the e-mail because it doesn't look like it's coming anytime soon.
On their twitter SE said we should just keep trying but they didn't say anything about sending an e-mail.

Well, every step of the process says you'll get an email confirming stuff.
So... blindly hoping it works.

What blows my mind is that the Japanese have been able to insert their codes for two weeks now.  Why did they only give westerners a grand total of 4 days?  Especially when said westerners crashed their own servers through their population during the final beta phase.

It seems so backwards.

On a less frustrating and confusing note, I got my code registered and everything all ready just now, so I'm good to go for this weekend :)

Well, despite the lack of any evidence of an order on Digital River's website, my preorder shipped.  I am relieved.  Looks like I'm all set.

I haven't received any email from SE.
No email about this registering.
No email about the code.
No nothing =/

same.  Why do we need to register again if we're already registered?  That doesn't make sense to me.

I don't think I follow you. Why would you be registering again? When you pre-order the game your retailer should have given you an 18 digit code (6-3-6-3 digits) to redeem on the FFXIV:ARR preorder site which gives you the 20 digit early access/pre-order item code to enter into your Square Enix account. If you select PS3 it gives you a 12 digit code for the client. This is totally independent of the beta.

If you are a Legacy player you don't need to do anything but patch up the Phase 4 client and login when early access starts. Otherwise you'll need to use that pre-order code.

On another note, there's no record of my physical CE preorder for the PS3 release on Digital River.  Christ.

The fact they were going with Digital River for their store site is one of the biggest reasons I ran with the PS3 CE for pre-order from Amazon and just took my chances on whether or not I'd get PC access. At worst the PC version would eventually go on sale for something like $10 and I'd just get it then.

Thankfully, I entered the code and now on my Services List, it shows me as "Early Access".

The new official forums are up. Technically they're the same as the v1.0 forums, but hey, just thought I'd let people know.
http://forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/forum.php

They automatically link your profile to your Lodestone profile/character information, so while I think we've all played Phase 4, just in case you haven't, you can't post in them yet, unfortunately.

Yeah, mine doesn't say early access either. Are you doing it for PC or PS3?
All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.

If you're on PS3, log in to the client.  You will be prompted to add "permanent options" i.e. the preorder stuff to your FFXIV account.

Test my theory and login anyway.  See what happens.
