TROUBLESHOOTING & ACCESS HELP
⚠️How do I access the Grayman Briefing Classified (GBC) after I complete my order?
You will instantly be sent an email that contains a link to a download page. You then download the PDF, read the instructions, and click the access link for either Signal or Telegram. (Can't find that email, check your spam folder or run an inbox search for the subject line "your downloads are ready"). If you have issues downloading the PDF, use a different browser and/or device.
 
How do I make sure I'm receiving all the paid content? I'm not getting the GBC emails and/or the unredacted briefs on Telegram/Signal.
Sometimes if you joined our Telegram/Signal groups prior to upgrading to the GBC, you'll get confused which group is the paid version versus which is the free version. The paid group name will be titled "Grayman Briefing (Classified)". Turn off notifications and stop checking the groups titled "Grayman Briefing". Also the logo for the paid channels is a "tan folder" while the logo for the free channels is our primary logo of the "person holding a folder".
 
If you're not getting all the Grayman Newsletter emails, subscribe by submitting your email at the bottom of this page. Also note that the emails may have advertisements for the GBC as they are also sent to unpaid subscribers. Also note we are partnered with Practical Prepping and Superesse, so if you unsubscribe from their emails, you're also unsubscribing from ours.
 
I've ordered the subscription but can't find the access email and am having trouble actually joining the GBC on Signal or Telegram, what do I do?
1. Open the email we sent you with subject line, "Your downloads are ready".
2. Don't see that email? Check your spam folder or search your inbox.
3. Still can't find it? You may have used another email to order and yet another email to subscribe to our newsletter. Check all your email accounts. Make sure you entered the correct email address at checkout (a typo in your email could be preventing us from emailing you the access info). Login to your account here and see if you used the correct email. (If you can't get logged in, send us an email with your order number or name used for purchase)
4. Once you find and open the email titled, "Your downloads are ready", click the URL labeled "Download Link". It's opens a website where you then download a PDF with access instructions.
5. The PDF has all the details  you'll need and it has a direct access link to both the paid Signal and Telegram channels. Click the link and you're in.
 
I've downloaded the PDF but when I open it the text is garbled and looks like random letters/numbers, what do I do?
This is an error that occurs on some phones that don't have standard fonts installed. The best fix is to open the PDF on another device (PC/Mac or other phone), then email just the access link to yourself by doing a copy/paste from the device that can open it to the device you want to use.
 
Why did I get charged $29.99 two months in a row? Can I get a refund?
Our order page requires you to make two selections. The "type of subscription" and the "delivery schedule". When you placed your order for the Annual Subscription, you failed to select, "Deliver every 12 months". No problem, just send us an email and we'll get you refunded. We routinely do admin checks and refunds as we find this error.
 

The download link in my access email doesn't work or it says "file doesn't exist" or "download failed". What do I do?

If you found the email title "Your downloads are ready" and you clicked the access link and it didn't work, then you need to use a different device or open it in another browser. If you get an error of "download failed" it's likely because you are using the DuckDuckGo browser which has a known issue with file downloading. Use a different browser. If you get an error that says "File doesn't exist", then you're likely opening an old email from us that has expired. Search for a newer email with that email subject and try it. If it's still not working contact us via email.

I've been kicked from the Grayman Debrief (Classified)? What did I do and how to I get back in the chatroom?
The chatroom (debrief) is an additional feature and access can be revoked at any time at our discretion. If you got kicked it was due to a security concern, spamming, sharing memes, arguing, or otherwise not being an asset to the community. The debrief is designed to share peer-to-peer intel and discuss recent posts. It's not the Facebook comment section. We won't provide a reason for why you got kicked and we'll won't give you access again for a year, email after a year for review. We don't allow the encouragement of violence, planning of operations, of anything else that could put our service at risk.
