just an idea. recommendation bucks. FOR EXAMPLE If I invite my friend/neighbor to openstudy, and he joins because of my recommendation. we get one owlbuck each. the only way you would get that owlbuck is through the email invite, only.

    \(\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}\) @acxbox22 OS would lose money without gaining any good idea though \(\color{blue}{\text{End of Quote}}\) They earn money for every new person that comes on here i think. @domebotnos great idea but people will try and invite fake people just to get OWlbucks. People can change there IP or something like that.

    they would have to show proof of being active. like get a certain smart score before the actually get the owlbuck. like be on everyone day, answer questions, until the owlbuck is ready to be rewarded

    the main loophole would be the multiple accounts problem (as stated) otherwise, I'm sure Preetha would love the idea ^_^

    but we can eliminate the extra accounts on how frequent the are on. i don't know if you know what i mean. like 3 accounts per ip? i know people who have siblings like @sammixboo and i have a brother. they would have to be on frequently. if there is an odd/smelly thing going on then they could deduct the owlbuck.

    It would be a little too much work in my opinion...mods are really busy as it is.

    one problem with this, what about poeple like me with 1.7 million email addresses? :P There should be additional limitations, such as it has to be a unique IP that has not yet been on openstudy.

    Almost every single user has broken the TaC... "register for more than one User account, register for a User account on behalf of an individual other than yourself, or register for a User account on behalf of any group or entity;" http://openstudy.com/terms-and-conditions No one is supposed to even have alts.
