Referrals

On the profile page for cove members there is an entry called "referrals". What does this exactly mean?

Technically the software has a feature which, when someone e-mails a link to a thread here (that "E-Mail This Page To A Friend" button), it sends a number as an identifier. That number is the number that corresponds to the user's 'identifier' number in the database. That 'identifier' number is, I believe, the next number in sequence from whoever registered just before you did. So - every user has a unique 'identifier' number.

So - you e-mail a page to someone and they click the link in the e-mail which opens their browser and brings then to the page. That number is on the end and the software recognizes it. It sees that user number (yours - you sent the page to someone) and 'credits' your 'account'.

I don't think I have it turned on - I can't remember. It wasn't a feature or statistic that I'm interested in.

In short, for here it's a useless extra feature. Some sites that use the software may use it to give people certain credits in some way but I've never really thought about how one might use it.

I'm sure you all can come up with a good reason though, so I'll check and see if I have it 'turned on'.

Hey....Hey.......Hey

While I'm not sure about the entire post, that's just me pthareja, I found it strange to enter the Cove through a kind of Q Site on MSN. Does it open up like a member would see it? Do you still have to register? I'm betting that you do. I'm not sure if you are referring to the guy who posted the link on MSN, but I would have to agree that without permission from Marc, it is being generous with what isn't his. But, it's the information age and the site is out there for people to do with what they want, as far as sharing. Another thing: If they have to pay to register to participate, is that a bad thing? Is there anything we do here that we wouldn't want others to see? I mean, we cleaned up our act as far as offensive posts, well, not as offensive. :vfunny: Maybe this is the plan? What are you trying to convey? Someone is taking advantage? Who? I apologize because of the language interpretation. You are the bi-lingual one, not me. :agree:

(Added later-"Why not make this THETOTALQUALITYMANAGEMENTSITE agood one? Rather than pulling away members, please contribute some good things here.Thareja" Okay...it appears that Thareja {the other website member} is you. It appears that you object to the Cove link in that Special Quality Management site because you fear their members will leave there and visit here? I'm I getting warm?) Or am I still lost?

This itself needs delebrations? Why bring in someone who may merely be a sucker, not a seeker willing to share?

Not withstanding the AFIK, I don't either. I was just trying to find out the objection. The pthareja post appears to be critical of the linking of the two. What do you think it is? I don't quite get it. :agree:

I was just looking through the referenced site and have come to the following conclusion: Boy, are we spoiled.

We're not spoiled, just more knowledgeable in general. This forum attracts a more informed and professional group of people. We also don't put-up with off-topic advertising. I believe those individuals from the other site that are serious will find this forum useful. My $.02.

I agree Al. I was also referring to the "professional appearance" as well as the "ease of navigation" with this Forum (as well as some other "niceties").

Not sure I'll be around tomorrow. In the event that I'm not, I'd like to wish everyone a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving :bigwave: .

Go Lions! errrrr..... Go Packers! (Maybe I'll just have a couple of brewskis and actually enjoy a game without rooting for either one - although the Pack does have a chance at postseason)

Toodles,
Bill
