I have sent quite a few folks here, but I keep forgetting to tell them to put me down as the referrer. Oh well.

I can't help but to snicker to myself whenever I read that so-and-so "tweeted".... I can't help but think about a "tweety bird" cartoon character from back when I was a kid.

Anyway, if people now prefer those sorts of platforms, then that is just the way it is. If this site eventually goes away as a result of the lost traffic and support, then that will just be the breaks.

From what I can see, while the activity on the discussion forums seems to have reduced, the classified sections are still pretty busy.

So maybe only the social interactions are moving to the other networks and this site is heading back to the core business of Fauna Classifieds?

Well, right now we have two members tied for first place in this contest. Both have two (2) referrals.

End of this month and this is over with. Been no changes with two people still tied with merely 2 referrals each.

The purpose for this was to try to give existing members some incentive for encouraging new people to sign up. So what went wrong? Prize to skimpy for anyone to make the effort for it? Or something else?

Obviously this just did not work as well as hoped for. I had planned on doing this on a continual basis, but heck, why bother?

Two quick observations.
1. Fauna is referred a t-o-n. The main problem is people are bad at specifiying 'who' referred them.
2. I think there is an error in the calculation for who is referring. I went back to the beginning of this year visually, and I see members who stand out.

That may be so, but unless the entry is made by the new member when registering (please note the first post in this thread), I am sorry but it doesn't count for the purposes of this contest.

So is it too complicated for many folks? Just a bad idea from the start? Wouldn't be the first time I had a bad idea, you know....

Well, if there is no clear winner to this contest, what I will do is extend the starting date backwards to when I first set up that referral system and pick the member with the highest number from that extended time period. If there is a tie and there are no more referrals than 5 from ANY member, then I will declare NO WINNER, and game over.

And some of you were worried about people cheating in order to try to win this contest........

Well, I tried.....

Serpent Mo

When I created an account the other day, I didn't know my referrer's "handle" was just his name (sorry if my terminology isn't right).

Is there a way to get him credit for this contest?

It's Vic Herrick, if that helps.
