Looking for comments on possible new feature

Posted March 3rd, 2014 by perryd

Hi, everyone. We're thinking of adding a feature to KidPub in which members earn credits to spend in the KidPub Press bookstore by by bringing new members here to KidPub. For example, for each new member that you bring to KidPub, you'd earn a $5 credit to spend at the KidPub Press bookstore on books or even a publishing package. The credits would be stored in an account, so, for example, if you'd earned $30 in credits and spent $14 on a book, you'd still have $16 in your account. They would not expire.

I'm curious to know if you think this is something you'd find fun and would use...let me know in comments, and thanks!

Perry- I think this is a

Perry- I think this is a really interesting idea! Although you'd still have to work out a few small parts- for example maybe broadcast and advertise the use of those invitations. It would be really fun, and I'd love to participate!
Even if we didn't get credits, I would still try my best to bring new members to this wonderful community. ^_^
Thanks for all the work and devotion you've put into KP, Perry!

Just one point, would it be in pounds as well, since I live in the UK, so would that still work out?

That'd be awesome! But you'd have to have some way to make sure that someone actually brought that person to KP. And what if you already had brought them? Would you still get the reward?

Each member would get a code, like PD123, that hey would give to the members that they were referring. The new member would enter the code when they filled in the registration form. We'd start everyone at zero.

Sounds great Perry! It sounds like a good idea and I think it could work. I have an idea. Maybe you could once in a while do giveaways with credits instead of books, so with the credits, they could buy their own book from the KidPub bookstore. I will definitely do this if 'this' is a thing.
