I am all for people signing up as long as they know the deal. Referrals are cool as long as people know it gives the the person credits towards their account, which I am sure some people do know know.

Also I do not know the rules on these forums about referral links, but most forums will actually ban you for posting them, even more so since we are currently able to sign up for free.

No harm intended, just trying to spread the word and keep people aware.

I personally signed up without a referral and was invited within an hour, maybe I just had good luck.

I did mine through Dave or Leo one day, so I'm not sure the typical free invite time frame.

i dont understand the issue with referral links. thats how that site works (usually, this free account thing is rare) and if you can click a simple link and sign up through him since he is the one that gave notice about the goggles in the first place, why not?

Well it is usually frowned upon due to people abusing it and ruining it for others.

The fact that it is currently free is another issue. If someone was handing out cheeseburgers for free, and then there was someone giving out the same burgers for free, but when you got one from him he gets $10 dollars. Why would you do that when you can just get one for free? As you can see it could easily be abused, not that anyone in this thread was trying that even though the OP does have a low post count.

If people want to give other people money, go ahead. People just need the facts before making the decision.

i would actually rather get a free cheeseburger and let another guy get $10 from it than just getting the cheeseburger and nothing else. Sounds kinda stingy the other way around. I do see what you mean about people abusing it though. if it isnt controlled it can get out of control and lead to spam across the forums.

yes, i know on some websites referral links are frowned upon, but i dont get your deal with "the invites are free" shit you keep saying. Guess what, the referral links are FREE as well!!! And like the other person said, why not have this site throw me (or whomever) 10$ when a person who follows the link buys something? I found out about this website through a referral link on here, and now that i bought some goggles that guy just got a free 10$.

This website is awesome ive used it for a while now, always got good deals on everything(hides my referral)

jk send me a pm and i can send an invite link to the website and if you register under your friends you get money on your account, which is pretty awesome.

I actually don't know why I said free to be honest, should of been replaced with "open".

Once again it comes down to spammers abusing it in the end. Not to be rude, but you just made your 8th post and while I am sure you mean well, you could just as easily be a spammer trying to benefit themselves.

Here is a stolen quote that sums it up better than I have said.

Or a link to some survey in the name of a "high school class project" who are really just spamming to get free market research data, etc. Usually these people are first time posters on the forum, and never post again. It's pretty obvious that you are not one of these people. So although your post seems well-intentioned, people still might get that impression about it.
