    Whatever I want.
    Your airdrop can't be pruned. If you submitted an address and that address was accepted, then the credits are still there.

    To submit your airdrop address, you ran an executable program which generated a 33-word seed and a 64-character string. (the words are just a different representation of the 64-character string plus a checksum value) You were instructed to save this seed multiple times during the process, as it's what would be used to generate the wallet containing your airdrop coins. Without the seed, there is no way to access your coins.

    If there aren't any transactions on the airdrop address, then you did get removed as a duplicate.

    Complaining won't get you anywhere. There was a system which ran through all of the confirmed airdrop applications and removed any that it determined were someone trying to double-dip by registering multiple times via multiple names or websites. Unfortunately, no system is perfect, so it's highly likely that a couple of fraudsters ended up getting multiple airdrops and that legitimate users ended up getting culled.

    More information can be found here.

    Really sorry this happened if it was in fact the case. Unfortunately, the airdrop database isn't accessible for me to access and won't be, so I cannot verify any information. The airdrop process essentially required active participation since there were many attempts to abuse the system and we had to be extremely vigilant throughout the entire process to ensure it was not abused. The best thing you can do now to get help is verify your DCR is at your address using the block explorer. If it is, your airdrop is sitting there waiting for you.

    Have you checked the address using the block explorer?

    Hello!

    I wanted to get my airdrop in the webwallet so I tried to create a new wallet and set my seed in the advanced options like the instruction said but is says my seed is invalid..? I made sure there was no typo so what am I doing wrong here? Already using the webwallet for dcr I bought on bittrex and that worked fine..

    1: do not, under any circumstances, ever let anyone else know your seed (I hate that this still needs to be said, but it still needs to be said, especially since this would be the easiest way to verify. It would also be the easiest way for someone to steal the entire airdrop.)

    2: if you still have the utility used to generate your airdrop seed, there was a verification utility in there. If you don't, I think I still have the 64-bit Windows version I might be able to send you. (No promises, though.)

    3: ...um... I'm out of ideas, maybe @David or @RegenX might be able to help?

    I was going to suggest making sure the wallet isn't in testnet mode, but I think the same seeds work for testnet and mainnet wallets, so that wouldn't do it.

    While it prints on many lines, the seed is actually supposed to be entered on only one line. This is a common error.

    Hey @bamsterdam, welcome. While I haven't used the webwallet myself to claim my airdop, this isn't the first report I've seen of the same situation. I would suggest, as @Lee Sharp said, to make sure you are entering your seed all on one line. Be sure there are no double spaces between words, and that there are no spaces before the first word and after the last word. Also, a single mispelled word will cause your input to be rejected.

    If this still fails, we can help you get setup using the CLI utilities to claim your airdrop.. then you can create a new webwallet and send your coins to it, if you wanted.
