      Hi,

      Following a discussion around the TAF model here I would like to open for vote/discussion a change in the current pokerstrategy TAF (Tell-a-Friend) promotion.

      Considering that pokerstrategy will NOT change the amount of $100 we would like to know:

      1 - Would you support our letter to pokerstrategy to change their current breakdown of releasing the money?

      2 - Which breakdown should we propose:

      a)

      $10 at the 15 strategypoints mark
      $15 at the 100 strategypoints mark
      $25 at the 1000 strategypoints mark
      $50 at the 5000 strategypoints mark

      b)

      $10 at the 15 strategypoints mark
      $15 at the 100 strategypoints mark
      $25 at the 1000 strategypoints mark
      $25 at the 2500 strategypoints mark
      $25 at the 5000 strategypoints mark

      Looking forward to receive your votes/replies!

      Best regards,
      Tuk

      This is quite a stupid vote as no 1 in their right minds will choose A. What is the point of that option?

      Obviously B, this is a good idea but a stupid thread because of the two options. I must add that I would really like if PokerStrategy allowed you to get more cash after 1000 points.

      nice idea, but i'm guessing pokerstrategy will have its reasons for having the current TAF-system as it is.
      either you're referred friends will get to 5000 points someday and then there's no need to have the money released sooner, or they never reach the 5000point mark and they are not really profitable to PS eiter.

      anyway, i wouldn't mind releasing part of the money sooner, so both a and b would be better to me. (although, as long as we're dreaming anyway, i'd much rather have the system as it is, but with one or two % monthly rakeback for each +5K referred friend...)

      B but even if they only changed to A that would be already good.
      As riv3rd4ncer mentionned if we could dream then I would like to have a higher TAF amount - something around $200 per friend and then if I could dream again then of course a % of the rake per friend :)

      I dont get you why would you get 50$ at 5000 strategy points of your reffered friend if you can get 100$ at 5000
      Edit:i just looked better at it :D but you can only withdraw that money when whole 100$ bonus is cleared so it doesnt matter how much they add you 20x5$ or 1x100$

      stick with the old one and stop complaining. how often do you get money because you told someone to subscribe themselves to play and get free 50$ ?

      Please entertain me with an ancient glorious story.

      how often did a poker site pay u 35% of a player's rake if they signed up through you ? how often did sites pay u $150/person if they get 100 FPP points?

      We are not complaining. This TAF system is really good. I don't want more money, I want money on different stages.

      Hi TribunCaesar!

      Thanks for adding the poll - that is also showing a sign that pokerstrategy.com is active and following up this matter so he might actually have a chance of seeing some modifications to the current TAF promotion :)

      Everybody please vote!

      I think giving away $25 for 3 large amounts of points is a horrible idea.
      Leave it as it is or add more steps increasing the amount as the more points you receive.

      Hi justkyle88,

      Sorry but I dont follow your idea... are you trying to say that the more points someone you refer makes the more money you would get? For example if someone reaches the 10000 strategypoints you would get another $xx? If thats the case I still have to say that its not really supporting the idea of promoting and spreading pokerstrategy for all. I would have to stand in front of the door of the next WSOP to collect high stakes players :)

      Nice to see that we have already 27 votes!

      I'm not saying you need high stakes poker and i'm not saying to increase the points to 10,000.
      still keep the maximum reward at 5000 or so but add a few more steps as an incentive for people to keep playing so they don't get bored and still receive money as they play and obviously the more they play.

      36 votes and counting...

      I wonder how many votes would be required for pokerstrategy.com to consider our proposal...
