The Referral issue has been fixed, all members that joined 6 months ago or more have been giving 1 referral (for now).
You do need the Badge of Honour to use them, so clear those hit and runs.
Hopefully, as the members have had to have joined at least 6 months ago, you may care about your accounts a bit more, but then this has the added drawback, that you do not want to get banned/download added to your account for inviting a cheat/trader. So for a trial period, which may become permanent depending on how it works, the only punishent you will recieve is having your referrals blocked for a period of time. Obviously the auto punishments cant really be changed so those are still in effect.
This does not mean we condone cheating/trading or even giveaways on public forums, but the punishment will be a bit less if you refer one of these.
We will see how it works out, but there is 22,000 referrals in the system, so we only have 7,000 members that joined before 6 months ago, so get referring to get new blood in here, as we could definately do with some
