    When responding to Referrals you MUST use this template or your referral will not be added to the user's referral count and such will not be included when adding Trustworthy Levels from now onwards.

    Auction Section service/item bought from: (e.g. General/Accounts/Call of Duty/YouTube/Trophies)
    Quality of Transaction: (Excellent/Good/Satisfactory/Poor)
    Proof of Transaction: (Link to service thread; directing to the individual post or screenshot'd proof)
    Additional Comments: (Anything you would like to add about the trade)

    e.g.

    Auction Section service/item bought from: Accounts
    Quality of Transaction: Excellent
    Proof of Transaction: You must login or register to view this content.
    Additional Comments: The deal went incredibly smoothly, would love to trade with you again.

    REFERRALS ONLY COUNT FOR TRADES WITHIN TRADING SECTIONS (AUCTIONS, FIFA TRADING ETC).


    This has be a little more effort but it has been added for your own benefit to restrict members from simply asking users to post in their referral thread, so this will help in the long run to reduce scamming. Thanks in advance!

    nice idea mate, isnt this just like the itrader that was added?

    i highlighted the most important bit i feel of your post. i guess this means current trusted levels still apply.

    i know this sounds like a dumb question but this thread was just posted with no announcement to members!!

    whatever, if people dont know its changed they will NEVER know, this should be at the top of the SB!!!

    compare the importance of stopping scamming to the current noices:

    Notice: Welcome to NextGenUpdate! || Official NextGenUpdate minecraft server! || New premium feature!


    the blue one is important, but the red one.... hmmm, i see it is more important than stopping or helping to stop scamming. errrr NO!

    I was thinking of making a referral suggestion too Winky Winky.


    Do YouTube services still count as referrals? Cause they're not a great indication of trust...

    I don't think anyone is going to show proof of transaction.

    I would have liked to see payment method in there as well. VBux deals aren't that amazing.

    People still do referrals? I forgot about them completely once I got to level 1 trustworthy.

    Forgot to add -> :carling:
    Anyway, I'm sure it's going to be a pain to apply this referral format but rules are rules. Gaspkay:
