    Thanks for sharing. But that number somewhat contradicts #3413 on Nov 2n, 2016. Did you use the Regtool to get the payment link on Nov 7th or earlier?

    I don't why it contradicts but as I see after checking my emails, I was received my first email from MorphOS support on Oct 30th so I used the Regtool in same day. Then a few days later I wrote that I can't use Paypal for payment, so Frank was sent me wire transfer information and I finished payment. Support team was received the reg fee on Nov 7th and same day I've got my key file. I also checked again my payment link for PayPal, it's showing #3408.

    For the purpose of this thread, it's more important when you got your first email (Oct 30th) because that's when the number is created (it's in that email after all). Normally (i.e. payment completion directly following receipt of first email) the difference doesn't matter because the MorphOS team is usually very fast at issuing the keyfile. In cases such as yours (i.e. payment completion only after some days passed), it's better to give date of first email so to not cause contradictions with other users' data.

    Oh, I see. Sorry for the mess. That's sure a clear explanation, I didn't know. Thank you so much.

    I received my keyfile on 12/4/2014, but my PayPal history doesn't show an invoice number. I guess it had been longer than I thought since I registered my copy. Just passed two years.

    As I read through this thread, it appears that folks are posting the number of their registration, or invoice number (I thought the two were related). I see nothing of a registration number in any emails from MorphOS support. How are other registered users able to determine their registration number?

    That's correct.

    The number is in the email from support@morphos-team.net with the subject "[morphos support] MorphOS Registration". It contains the following text (with XXXX highlighted by me indicating where the registration number is to be found):

    Hello xxx,

    Many thanks for your MorphOS registration.
    To complete the registration process, you must now purchase MorphOS. Once your payment is confirmed, our support team will send you your personal keyfile by e-mail.
    Please note that this is a manual process and thus could take a while until it is verified.
    The supported payment method is PayPal. To proceed with payment, just click the following link:

    http://registrations.morphos-team.net:80/payment/XXXX?h=xxx

    If you are unable to use PayPal or have further questions about payment, please contact us at payment@morphos-team.net .

    Not sure where all the numbers from #3511 to #3521 ended up... and I see more gaps...
    Anyway, if I can trust that #3522 is actually the last number, then I'm:

    -#3523 - Finally switched to MOS 3.9 from the old 1.4.5 for my PegII

    -#3524 - Bought second licence for an used PowerMac dual G5 which arrived few days ago and seems working great, crossing my fingers (but I prefer to still keep my Peg working and fully functional, so in emergency I still have it)

    ...if not, please feel free to correct my #s

    @Barren:

    Your reg number is somewhere at the end of the PayPal link you got when registering.

    I think that many users fail to notice, or remember the number they get via email in the PayPal link, as they expect a registration number to arrive with the actual keyfile, instead of what the community has been doing, by keeping track of the number placed on registration confirmation emails, with the request for payment. I know that I have deleted those emails immediately after making the PayPal payment, and forgot to notice what my registration number is, on more than one occasion.

    Ok sorry... I was invited to add myself to this thread but I was explained only later which my registration # actually was and where to find it ! Luckily I could still find my registering mail in the .recycled dir (yeah, I trashed those mails once the transaction was completed)

    So, my Peg registration number of some months ago I can't tell, cos too much time has passed,
    while my Mac registration number of some days ago is 3561

    There's no way we can know the number of users. Not even the MorphOS team can.

    Sure.
    I own 3 licenses (Pegasos 2, Efika, PowerBook) and I am a single user.
    I guess I'm not the only one.

    I don't understand. Are you trying to say we get the definite number of current MorphOS users simply by dividing the number of licenses by 3? (Btw, I own 1 license and I am a single user, too. And I guess I'm not the only one, too.)

    I just tell that I agree with you and that this counter has no relation with the users.

    Some users have several licenses, some licenses are not used anymore... no way to know actually.

    All we can say is that the user base is (very) small. :)
