Dealing with errors

You may see the following error message while attempting to complete an airdrop:

⚠️"Username not found. Make sure you have setup a public username.  Usernames are case sensitive."

If you are seeing this error message, Earn is unable to verify that you are a member of the Telegram group.  Causes of this include:

1. The Telegram username entered was mis-spelled.

  • Example: You typed in SammJones, but your Telegram username is SamJones.

  • Fix it: Verify the spelling of the Telegram username you entered in the airdrop task.  The spelling should be an exact match of how it appears in Telegram.

2. The Telegram username entered used the wrong casing.

  • Example: You typed in samjones but your Telegram username is SamJones.

  • Fix it: Usernames are cAsE SeNsiTivE. Verify that the characters of the Telegram username you entered match the case of your actual Telegram username. 

3. The Telegram username entered does not exist.

  • Example: You typed in SamJones but haven't yet created a Telegram username.

  • Fix it: Ensure that you have created a Telegram username.  You can create a Telegram username by navigating to the 'Settings' page and entering in a username.
