Quoting Utrecht

If there are people who are not lost for life, i will try, but like Tway said...they have 'better' things to do...like walking the dog

or throwing penguins

Actually, I think that's part of travelling isn't it....

It's one of the tourist attractions in Antarctica, but you have to book early as it's a favorite and there's a six month wait already.

I'm not really inviting them, but tell them about the webpage, about people I've met through TP so far, how it changed my life etc.

I remember 1 person actually asking me to write the address down, but that's about it.

Well, they don't know what they are missing out on

Do many of the people u invite join?
I think it would be great, if all the people I meet can get together here and we all get to keep in touch that way. They send me personal email, but I have seen none of them here, yet, even though they said they were going to join.

PS. If any of my travel aquaintences are lurking here, please declare yourselves.

why should we?

we are not allowed to promote other websites so why would we promote TP?

id only ever promote TP to fellow travellers if they are stuck and want answers concerning there travels only

i aint a sales / marketing person...
and i dont tell people about TP at first instance.

im waiting for the day were i will see lots of google ads all over the shop and were we will have to pay a registration fee to join...as no doubt some excuse will come out for hosting, maintenance, development, etc etc

nothing is free!

5 years of being online.... trust me, we know what we're doing. There will NEVER be a registration fee (although we might install one specifically for you if that makes you more comfortable?). I make no guarantees about how many ads people will see at any given time. That said, I get at least 5 proposals a week from advertisers wanting to work with us or put banner ads on the site. Looking at the site from where you're sitting, I guess you can figure out my response....

It was a simple question: "When u travel, do u invite people u meet, to join travellers point?"

Obviously your answer is no. The question has nothing to do with "promoting" the site to increase membership. And, when you meet people, you can "promote" any site you wish, TP included. I understand that sharing information is a type of promotion in and of itself, but sometimes it's just sharing information because you think someone else may benefit from it.
