Encouraging people to invite their Friends
Earlier today, a guest run by a pretty interesting idea I would like to share. They asked if there was a referral system, where friends they bring onto the server will grant money, much like the voting system... to which i responded "nope, but that is a really good idea and i will definitely bring this up!"

A couple hours later... Here is my suggestion:
-Members and above can get their friends to refer them for rewards
-They will only get their reward when their friend gets promoted.
-Guests can only refer to one person, but members can refer as many as they want.

There are a couple things that I thought might be an issue, those being:
-Making money appear out of nowhere to be used as a reward, its not something that we do and may not be worth the risk of abuse?
-The effort of recording the redeemed referrals might be too much for some?

So the way I think it should work is:
(for the example to make a bit more sense - Member or above=Mary, Guest=Gary. Original? I know right??)
1. Mary invites Gary, and tells him to refer to her when he gets promoted
2. Gary gets promotion, and the Demi who gets to promote Gary will ask, "Did anyone Refer you?"
3. Gary (if he isn't a douche) will say, "yep! Mary invited me"
4. Mary gets a reward, maybe money, or a day of donor rank. If we like, we can give Gary a reward too, maybe a bit of money?
5. For abuse-preventing purposes, Demi posts that Gary has redeemed his one and only referral, in a special "Redeemed Referrals" thread. Instead of recording we could just be strict and have it so guests can only redeem when they get promoted, maybe?

If anyone has any ideas on how this could work, that would be awesome!

Looks seamless to me. Smile

We'll have to check with Lewna about the rewards, but other than that, I see no downside.

Mihali, AWAY!

I love it Big Grin

To continue with the example above:

I think Gary should get a small reward if he says Mary referred him, OR if he tells us the website he found the server on and gives a link.

RE: Encouraging people to invite their Friends
Could do it like this...

Member refers Guest to the server.
Guest gets promoted.
They both get the reward.

(this encourages the guest to go through with the referral system too, and gives them a nice little one-off "welcome to the server" money gift)

Heh, this is the same way I buy wine at a place called Vinomofo. I have $50 sitting in my account right now that I can use for buying wine, wheee!

RE: Encouraging people to invite their Friends
Yeah I'll ask Lew about it next time I see her on teamspeak or something, no rush. I like the idea of getting a reward if they tell us which website they came from, only for data collection though (which websites we should focus on, for example) but that's all. For that reason I'm thinking the reward should be less than being referred by a friend. The reward for the guest can also be like a congratulatory gift for becoming a member so that works well.

Thanks guys for your input! It still might not happen but I appreciate it none the less ;D

RE: Encouraging people to invite their Friends
So what do we do when we catch a member or a guest telling all people about to be promoted to say they referred them to get the bonus money?

RE: Encouraging people to invite their Friends
The question was
Quote: So what do we do when we catch a member or a guest
As in: it's tecnically cheating, do we ban them, what punishment?

Also a wise person would ask not in minecraft chat but facebook or another network.

RE: Encouraging people to invite their Friends
At least a demotion or possible banishment would probably be best.
