- Jan-07-16 - Referrals Review - (pjcnet)It's already coming up towards the 2nd week in January which means it's due for another referral review.
I have now allocated this periods referrals. As with our usual policy no-one has been able to carry over referrals and only some members in the User class are eligible, however the number of referrals issued is still quite generous and with the exception of during the holiday period more members in the User class are eligible than before. Referrals are scheduled to be reviewed again during the last week in February.
Referrals have been issued as follows:
Users who have been a member for at least 60 days and have downloaded at least 100GB of data - 2 invites.
Power Users - 4 invites
Super Power Users - 5 invites
Elite - 6 invites
Super Elite - 7 invites
Uploaders - 8 invites if you've been a member for at least 60 days and have downloaded at least 100GB of data, 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 31st January will be automatically rejected.
The IRC #invites channel is as always 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 still prevented from signing up with hotmail.com, msn.com, live.com or outlook.com email addresses as they block our email responder. I am still 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.
