Suggestion for referrals - allow name!

Since I don`t see a "contact us" link (which may in fact be buried somewhere; I didn`t dig too hard), this will have to do to offer a suggestion: It would be helpful to have the option for new members to use either the username of members or their ID. In recommending the site previously, I gave my username but only later realized that it`s not enough to get credit. Also, it`s generally easier for someone you meet to remember a name than to remember a number (even assuming you yourself remember it to give out!)

That is a good suggestion! BTW, the contact us link is more prominent when you`re not logged in. I figured once you`re a member, you know to just message Greg for help. I will think of an easy way to look up members that referred you to the site. Just using member id isn`t good enough, you`re right. Later! Greg.

A clarification: I was not inviting someone through email. I was talking to a fellow diver and was nowhere near a computer. In that case, it`s far easier for the other diver to remember your username than a number, even assuming you remember the number yourself.

Look in your profile. There should be a link just below your avatar picture to use for referrals. You can also go to "manage referrals" and insert the email address of the person you want to refer to divebuddy.

Hope this helps. Happy turkey day!
