      This summer a lot has improved about our “Tell a friend” programme:

      * With Moneybookers you can finally use a really good payout option
      * The summer promotion in June and July
      * A new strategy section: “Popularise Poker

      We are curious to find out if and why you refer new members for our community – or why you don’t.

      You can choose up to three possible answers.
      If you don’t like any of the possible answers or would like to add something, just reply in this thread and let us know what you think!

      99% of people are too lazy to read anything longer than 3 sentences and thus incapable of completing the quiz aaand too skeptic, even when thoroughly explained "how/what/why", when it comes to "free money" and possible ID checks ... Barely cleared my $50 from TaF - only 2 referals have made it ITM from the gazillion ones that I've referred here.

      Had three friends who passed quiz and none of them have received starting capital. They also claim no further correspondance was entered into. As to the validity of this statement I am unsure, nevertheless the bottom line is I can no longer be bothered to attempt referrals.

      I recently had my status downgraded from gold in the middle of the month while I had the understanding that you keep your status until the end of the month. Perhaps things have changed or I didn't understand how this worked to begin with but it was vaguely annoying regardless.

      While I continue to be appreciative of all pokerstrategy.com has offered I no longer play through a tracked site and will no longer be referring friends here for the time being.

      Of the 4 real life friends i've referred only 1 has bothered to pass the quiz and got the capital :( GOt a few online referrals and managed to cash out twice. I just don't know enough people to keep referring, and i've got $25 in my TAF account, and no-one i've referred seems to be playing anymore :(

      I've referred 2 people who both have cash accounts and have both obtained Silver status at least once, but neither of them used my referral code so I didn't get sh*t :s_mad:

      Hi szury,

      I see you have been doing very well as an affiliate. I would like to have some talk with you. Maybe we can share experience and even some co-operation oppotunities as well. Le me know your MSN or Skype.

      Regards,
      thunder
