You all probably should realize that half of filling out the ticket is probably also so they can FIX it, rather than listen to more naysaying, whining, and complaining on the forums that makes 90% of what's here. Yes, it's stupid and it would deter new players. It will KEEP doing so until people take a moment to report it so they can fix it. "should" it work anyways? Yeah sure, but so should all software, but it never does, it's the nature of the beast.
The Epic Destinies are an embarrassing mess of wrong tool-tips, bugged abilities, and things that just don't work, but all we can do as players is report them or quit the game and stop supporting it. So have your friend submit a ticket, register without the referral and deal with it, or don't play.
I could raise the tickets for them I guess, but I'm not that desperate for a pet cube. I'd quite like my friends to come and play, but if they aren't going to put up with this minor a bug, they aren't going to put up with the regular breaking of existing stuff and rebreaking of supposedly fixed stuff either. I already had three friends quit DDO in the past because of those issues, no point making these run through the same process when I can already see how the wind is blowing. I'm guess I'm just a lot more sanguine about raising bugs and things than my friends are.
wish there was a quicker link to this instead of having to look this tread up everytime if there is where is it ?
I found this thread AFTER signing up a total of three accounts in my immediate family.
When do I find out that there's a rewards program? So far as I can tell, the answer is "when I browse the forums long enough that "signup rewards program FAQ" happens to be the topmost thread in a forum I hadn't actually been looking at because I didn't realize it had longer-term posts rather than short-term things like contests that are probably long-expired.
The signup page doesn't mention the rewards program. Account management doesn't. Heck, the page from the "Ready to jump into the action? Play free now!" button still has the Pando Media Accelerator downloader, complete with separate high-res and low-res versions.
If there had been anything in any of the things I saw in the process of creating an account, asking around on the forums about VIP status and the xpack, etcetera, etcetera, that even mentioned the existance of such a program, I would likely have used it. The only program I see referred to anywhere in there is the beta access rewards program.
So, basically: Imagine that I don't happen to start on ddo.com/rewards. And that I haven't happened to read this thread. And no one's specifically told me "BTW, DDO has a referral program".
How am I going to encounter it? What series of steps that an ordinary user might take would lead that user to ever see the phrase "signup rewards program" or end up on a page that links to it?
(Yes, I'm a little fussy; if I had had any inkling that such a program existed, I would have two referred accounts already, but since there was nothing to tell me that...)
Ok im a noob i cant find my referral profile but i already got 3 friends and got a gelantinous cube and it went on a char i didnt want it on maybe u should have an accept button so the char u want it on can recieve it ..
i dont understand how to do this .. u need to start from square 1 cause im not seeing it. I find the page with the big cube and form that says fill out emails and a status bar showing how many friends i got referred and its at 3 so the bar is at complete .. i see no names and i see no points ..
so where is the page referral program page at that shows all this?
and how do i get it to link to my home page cause i dont know how this works . If u skip steps i wont understand cause i dont program ur game so i dont know how to do it.
just fyi when im logged in the game where i try to look this up. It doesnt give me an option to type in ddo.com/referral i got to click on search then gives me a box and i type referral and i go to this post then go to this link attached.
I got a Home page when i click "my ddo" from In game ,is there supposed to be some way to link to the referral page off that? .. i dont have a clue where it is but most of the time when i click ur link to show my referrals it throws me out to net assistant and says Is this what ur lookin for ? and i click my back button ..
its pretty broken or something. Also it doesnt show me any names of the people that are my referrals or where would i see my bonus points for the referrals .. no clue on that cause i cant figure it out.
Maybe u should write up a how to get to referrals.com for dummies cause its not showing me anything
I mean i got my yellow gelantinous cube already but im just letting u know from someone thats having a difficult time with ur site.
U need some sort of link from peoples home pages and fix the referral page to show the friends that u referred and show these points im supposed to be getting . Just tryin to give a solution to this problem.

what else is there to know? You referred 3 friends, your bar shows complete, you got your cube. That's the whole thing, done.
