Refer-A-Friend System Is Broken (JIRA Issue ID WEB-841)

x-post from SL Forums

Please Vote For
WEB-841 Refer-A-Friend link no longer exchanges calling cards with new signups. No referral bonuses for accounts created after July 2008.
https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/WEB-841

This bug coincides with the launching of the new official registration portal, the one that makes you pick a first name before presenting a list of available last names.

Update: A kind user in SL official forums has taken the time to confirm this bug and update JIRA. Thanks!

I have been able to reproduce the bug. Having others reproduce the bug will help get LL's attention. It's pretty simple -- create an alt using your own referral link. Do you get a calling card for your main? Does your main get a calling card for your alt? No? That's bad! That means you have zero possibility of getting a premium signup bonus (L$2000) for the RL friends you refer who convert to premium.

One last note is that there is a possibility that there has been not an oversight but a silent policy change. Did LL end the Refer-A-Friend program? I don't see an announcement. The program is still advertised on the website:
https://secure-web6.secondlife.com/a...al.php?lang=en
If that is the case, we need to get LL to come clean about it so affiliates can stop wasting their time.

I've been getting a referral bonus off of the same avatar about every three months for the better part of 3 years. What's awesome is I never actually referred him in the first place.

This is just like tax cuts for the rich and FIC. I think we need to spread the wealth here.

Really? Maybe this is part of the problem.
Anyway, I'd rather have the referral bonuses I'm rightly owed than the same one over and over again.

That system has never worked properly, ever, since day one.
