Or maybe for those who accumulate a certain number of points...

And perhaps also block people from creating accounts from the same IP address?

The points for friends will never happen under current management, but who knows what will change with the new owners.

that would be easily abused

unlimited gmail accs = unlimited friends = unlimited points

points are already easy enough to get, especially with the new system they added

New system?

EDIT: Nevermind, found it. I had to log out to see it. So here I was, hoping for them to nix the point system or at least make it harder to get points and now it's even easier to get tons of points.

I can see even more review spam in addition to the post spam already here.

just be thankful for the new rewarrding point system that we just got... this would get out of hand and it would be too hard to create a guideline to regulate the amount of points a member can receive.

I think if they could use the ip address thing and the 200 points it would work but i'm very happy with the new system and the referral thing isn't neccesary.

If your friend is a douche though, you get negative points.

Referrals are usually a good way for websites to get more community members, however there should be a quota level for that new member to be hitting if points are to be given out so that you add people of value

the points system is already abused, this would just be another easy way to pull one over on tru snow to try to earn free points

unlimited gmail accounts = unlimited "friends" = unlimited points

edit:
lol just realized i already posted in this thread with basically the same info..
thought this thread looked familiar

It's too easy for people to create a new account so their main account could get the points, so they will never implement points for referrals.

If you know anyone not already on this site you'd be helping them out by referring them. Isn't that enough to just help your friends?

I joined this site while shopping for and doing research on new boards. I would not have joined if not for the point system and the community of like minded people. Helps me get my snow shred fix on days that I can't ride.

It wouldn't be a problem if there was a rule that said one account per IP or household, which I don't think there is but would also suck for those members that are siblings or even parent and child.

I really think this is one of the best snowboard websites out there and I have told many of my friends to jump into the community.

My fiance also uses TruSnow and we're on the same connection so the IP rule would kill it for us.

It's been mentioned several times, but it's too easy to create a new email address so a referral program would be abused like crazy.

I think that if you had a referral code to give to people it would be nice, and when they moved up in ranks you would get certain numbers of points (this would discourage abusers)

The current program isn't good enough for you?

more than likely it wont happen. now if your friend buys 100$ goods then you get 1point/$10 seems alot more reasonable

My 2cp on referrals.

1. There's a reason they don't exist anymore (since they did exist at some point). A, it was being abused, or B, the community is big enough so SS/TS doesn't need that kind of promotion to gain additional members.

2. Sure, having your friend on the site is cool too, but If I'm gonna be paying $100 for shipping to Canada, I'm gonna ask my friend whom I've referred if he/she wants anything from TS... to save on shipping. This stacks my account with points, which will lead to further discounts down the road should we both want to order again.

So having a bizillion accounts on the site serves no purpose since a group of friends can order off of one account. Only real purpose of an individual account is to socialize and share stories/knowledge/tips/photos etc.

Everything else is BONUS! for being an active participating member of TS.
