Referrals Review

It's coming up towards to end of the 1st week in June and as promised it's time for the next referrals review.



I have now allocated this period's referrals. Again as with our usual policy no-one has been able to carry over referrals, but the number of referrals issued remains the same as the last period which is quite generous and some members in the user class also continue to be eligible. Referrals are scheduled to be reviewed again around the 21st July.


Referrals have been issued as follows:


Users who have been a member for at least 90 days and have downloaded at least 100GB of data - 2 invites.
Power Users - 4 invites if you've been a member for at least 90 days, otherwise 2 invites.
Super Power Users - 5 invites if you've been a member for at least 90 days, otherwise 3 invites.
Elite - 6 invites if you've been a member for at least 90 days, otherwise 4 invites.
Super Elite - 7 invites if you've been a member for at least 90 days, otherwise 5 invites.
Uploaders - 8 invites if you've been a member for at least 90 days, otherwise 6 invites.


Again if you are/were in Kitty Litter at the time of writing and issue you won't have received any invites, but if your account is later promoted back into good standing and you would have been eligible for invites you can optionally apply to receive them at a later date by writing to the Staff Box titling your message, "KL invite application", but any such applications received after the 27th June will be automatically rejected.


The IRC #invites channel continues to remain open for business where members are allowed to give away invites to others, it's up to yourselves exactly what criteria you ask for before issuing an invite, but as usual please invite responsibly.


Please note that once a referral code is issued it only remains valid for up to 24 hours, if a code expires before being used it will be wasted. Invitees are now prevented from signing up with hotmail.com, msn.com, live.com or outlook.com email addresses as they block our email responder. I am not aware of any other major email providers that are currently blocking us, but if your invitee doesn't receive their confirmation email, firstly please advise them to wait at least 15 minutes and also check their junk / spam folder as it commonly arrives there (this now happens most of the time when using gmail), if it's definitely not received the code can be used again to retry with a different email address within the 24 hour period.


Do NOT distribute your referral codes on known invite forums or trading sites of any kind. Invite giveaways are also prohibited on such sites. The only invite giveaways that are allowed are those that are on other class restricted forums or those sanctioned by staff. Doing so will result in you losing your referral privileges indefinitely as well as possibly being disabled along with your invite tree. Please issue your referral codes responsibly. Referrals are subject to change and maybe be reissued, changed or even withdrawn at the sole discretion of the staff at any time.
