Do you get anything for referring a friend to this site? I got and talked all of my friends to buy the ultimate lifetime thingy and I was wondering if there is some sort of a bonus or treat for getting 3 of my friends to buy the lifetime thingy?

I don't think there is any bonus at the moment, but it would make for a great publicity stunt.

Though I'm not sure what the guys that manage this site would get you.
I mean if you have an unlimited supply of high-quality trainers, what more could you want?
Maybe free Wal-Mart coupons?

I dont know? Maybe they could let me change my alias or something? I think that would be fair, I get them $60 bucks and I get $5 to change my Alias

Wow, so your content with just that? Changing your alias is all you want? Just so instead of baseballduder you could be referred as LordAwesomsauce or whatever?

Ok, so let's say you do get your alias changed, your custom avatar, your custom header and even a custom rank at that, what then?
What have you really gained? Social status? Wealth? Power? Anything at all apart from the "coolness" of your profile?

If you really can convince someone to join and spend 60$ here and all you ask for is mere chicken feed, then who am I to complain?

Yeah sure the economy of the situation is faulty, but then again what isn't? Be satisfied with gaining illusory items that benefit your real life in no way.

In summary all I'm saying is that you should consider the situation, consider what you are giving and most importantly consider what you are gaining.

To be fair, most - if not all - "referral" promotions I've seen just involve money off something (or with things like games or other sites, you just get a message saying "referred by username" in the new users profile), or a voucher worth £xx.

A new alias, header and avatar has a $15 value (or a custom title) so it's actually no different, or better, than most referral programs.

I suppose you could have the option to have a free trainer request made (I mean specifically for a game not on CH which will be definitely made, not just a request in the request thread which may or may not be seen/acted upon). In that case, though, it might involve PWiz/Cal having to buy the game if they don't already have it.

Which in turn would mean loads and loads and loads of **** games that very few people play.
Not to mention everyone will expect their request to be fulfilled otherwise it would be a 'scam'.

I uh, don't think a referral system is a good idea. But that's just me.

I dont think the getting a game idea is a good idea, I was just saying it would be nice to have like a small thing like a name change or custom avatar or something like that on the site

I was just using it as an example folks, not a suggestion.
