Read the title of this thread, and prior replies. One thread per member.

If you have too many bump posts, perhaps you should wait longer on bumping your thread. The current rule is one thread per member, period. If your going to bump your thread every 35 minutes so you have an excuse for a new thread, that won't work.

Yo Kube. =)

May I suggest to cheapy that we ban any public talk of cancellation of offers? I know sites got in trouble for that before...

I agree. Using pre-paid cards too. The more talk about this, the more people will abuse it. Many advertisers, mostly the good ones, will then back off b/c of so much abuse. Look at this one for example:

Maybe a mod could go through and delete those posts, slickdeals has a thread like this but it generally focuses around how long the offers last and how long they take to credit (a thread with how long offers take to credit would be nice)

They include a lot more than that. If an advertiser sees that, they'll SO run away immediately. No wonder the Pacific WebWorks offers are still down (Quickbooks Quickstart, Yahoo! Success Center, etc.)...cause of people using 1 time pre-paid mastercards and then not even bothering to terminate it properly. I strongly bet it's b/c of that stuff.

Well, for starters, check out the first and second post on this thread:

http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=173655

Lots of stuff against the TOS, including one-time use paypal cards, time to wit to cancel, encouraging to let the card expire and not bother canceling, cancellation #s, etc.

That's over the line right there. Rig is considered a saint for writing all of that and it has helped many, many people, including myself.

Pertaining to the one-time use cards, if you read the thread you would know that he says "I specifically asked a Trainn representative about this, and he/she said they don't have a problem with it".

Rig was suggesting a time to wait to cancel if you do plan on canceling. In no way was he influencing the idea of signing up, planning to cancel. He put that there as a guideline so you don't end up in trouble if you decide to cancel.

I saw no mention of him encouraging card's to expire and not canceling.

I guess I had forgotten that it was against TOS to post public knowledge all in one convenient place.

I saw in his FAQ he put "dont do this" in bold regarding the letting the card expire / not bothering to cancel. I don't really see an issue with the #s because it keeps the information in one place rather then having people ask over and over. People will cancel, it happens .. but he isn't encouraging fraud IMO. And his FAQ also said Trainn gave him the okay on paypal cards, do you have a post elsewhere that says they don't allow it? The last one I saw said something about them looking into it.

Yeah, you saw it on a4f, right? I don't think there was a reply after that relating to paypal cards. I think I'll ask trainn too to be sure.

Yeah, all this info, and even the info on Slick Deals is quite useful, but unfortunately, it also helps encourage people to do take advantage of all this too much. Oh well... I guess it's best to make the best of it while the going is good.

hey guys, i got 2 people to sign up under me at yourps34free.com ...but it keeps saying that : "this user is not providing credit to your account as they have not completed their offer requirement"
does it mean that they completed their offers and it takes time for me to get credit ?
thanks

It could mean:

- they did an offer and it didn't credit yet, or
- the user didn't do an offer (just signed up)

I hardly ever post in forums and when I decided to this past week for referrals I neglected to read this thread first. Especially since I mistakenly posted two entirly different threads.
I understand the need for one thread per site but not one thread per user.
Can I add / edit to my own thread and then change the thread name?
if so, please post the thread that shows me how. I started to go through page by page in this thread, but most of it was conversation.
and also can you delete my other post titled "sports betting" ? thanks

greencandyman: This ain't the thread to place referral links. You're welcome to create 1 thread in this section though.

What if someone created a thread for referrals but the site went down or turned out to be a scam? Could they make a new one for a different site?

You'd simply edit your top post, and/or title as needed.

Well, this is my first post, so I don't have much leverage at all, but...

I completely understand why the 30 day rule was set in place, and I can see why this wouldn't be a good idea, but if the admins/mods are willing, could new members maybe submit threads to them via PM or something else for approval? I was going to post a pretty extensive guide to getting points on a site (with my referral link, of course), but I was pretty discouraged by this 30 day rule. I'll probably forget about this site by then... no offense to you guys, but that's just how it is with me. I'm not exactly patient. :(

Thanks in advance for any replies. :)

Try pm'd Foladar and let him know about your idea....just in case he doesn't see this.

The point of the 30 day rule is that you won't forget about the site and is for active CAGs. It isn't a dumping ground for every schmo wanting to spam referral links.

Okay. My bad, then. Maybe I'll stick around, maybe I won't, but I realize no one probably wants me here anyways if I'm not active. :P
