Hi all,

Well, we finally redid the code that was needed to send out our newsletter and therefore sent out a newsletter earlier today (the first in a year!)... For those of you that aren't subscribed, here's the direct link to the December newsletter if you want to see it online.

It includes links to the Christmas game that some of us have already been discussing in this thread.

Maybe more importantly, it includes details on how to be in the running for some pretty sweet prizes (2 video iPods, 2 iPod nanos and a couple of guidebooks!) we're giving away!! The details can be found in the newsletter or else via your control panel in the referrals area.

Based on the amount of questions from people looking for members profiles, diaries, blogs, photos or other information, we've also included a new promo area which members can use to let family and friends know where to find their details. Again, this can be found via the Control Panel once you are logged in.

Anyway, hope you enjoy and yes, we will be aiming to get them out more often now that the code is fixed up

[ Edit: Enjoy :) ]

Read mine from top to bottom!!! Thanks!!!

I could really use and iPod... But, all my friends all ready belong to TP!!! (Hey, that's where I met them!) My real-life friends are old and curmudgeony and hate travel. They all think we're insane for belonging to TP (and letting members visit us - potential serial killers, ya know..). Guess I'll just have to hope Santa brings the iPod...

Isa runs outside to flag down any passer-by and force them to sign up!!!! It could happen... Though, no one ever passes by either... Isa's just going to sit in the corner and pout.. Or have a martini and wait for the next newsletter... MARTINI!!!!

Isa's just kidnapped the postman and is holding him hostage until he signs up! He's going to be a hard nut to crack - he's holding her mail hostage in retalliation...

That is a good question - when is/was the official "start-up" date for counting referrals?

I know none of TP's members would ever think of doing this (they love TP too much), but what if they just get everyone they know to sign up and none of them ever visit again? The thought crossed my mind - I'll go away now...

Isa jumps over the snow drift, kidnapping the snowplow driver and forcing him into joining... He and the postman seem to be plotting their escape instead...

Uhm, nope.... did you actually expect another answer???

Only those signing up using the link count. The referral feature will also be factored in to member rankings for titles (Travel Guru etc.) going forward. One of the neatest bits is that if you refer someone who in turn refers a ton of other people that this will also be helping out your 'ranking' ;)

Just a small update on the referrals setup....

From now on, all members that are referred through someone's blog will also automatically be credited to the referring 'blogger'. Basically it means that those members that are attracting most readers to their blog will have an opportunity to see referral points in return and thus increase their member titles through our complicated, top secret formula ;)

Oh, and of course to be in the running for the prizes we're giving away on the 1st of March!!
