A bit of an annoyance I have been noticing.

  1. Ever since I won that Clicky thingy, people have been doing the same exact thing. Putting a random picture and a link to their referral thing. I have stopped doing it when I became alarmed to it so I say a few things
    1. I had no idea there was some kind of referral contest, so please do not say "But you did it!"
    2. I would like to make that little advertising on the server itself either banned OR not count towards the clicking because 100% of my click WAS unfairly earned due to no new players clicking it.
    3. If you click my question mark, it will lead to a random thread and no longer my referral.
    I ask that people PLEASE STOP DOING THIS. It is a tad bit annoying an unfair to others who actually advertise. And I am sorry for doing the thing, again I was unaware of the contest.
  2. I don't mind much, but I am not a huge fan of scammers like this guy (purposely left the name on).

    After I noticed that it was a referral link, it changed my view on how he supposedly changed from his shady actions in the past.
  3. i really need to buy one of those alex sigs..

    ANYWAYS,
    I just find it a little odd how you can post your referral link on the website of which it leads too... I'm hoping there's a way to remove that, or possibly for moderators to remove that and replace it with a red Please do not post your referral links on the EMC website itself.

  16. I was so stupid... I clicked on it too.... I guarantee you that this person is like some 6 year old thinking he's cool for tricking people like that... Also, I think it's stupid that you are able to post your referral link on the actual EMC site... It's so pointless...
  17. Whoa, let's not make assumptions like that. We have no idea what age he is for sure, and so let's just uh, try not to make enemies or anything.. Right? heh... heh.... uh.. Glad you agree with me on the referral thing on EMC website though!
    YEAH, POTATOES FTW! =D
    hoping that's what you're talking about.. :O
