    Tom Gray , May 21, 2014 :
    Hello Fellow Forum Users!

    I'm proposing an idea I hope people will embrace and adopt.
    As this 'Raining Invites' comes to a close, some people will start getting phones, and the invites they'll potentially get will start rolling across our forums.

    At some point when invites become a little more common, eventually even our most veteran users will have to tell people they need an invite, which will likely open them up to ridicule and insults about being a beggar.

    I propose everyone put one the following tags within their signature.

    Invite Status: Awaiting Invite (preferred size: Credit: @HD2kitkat & @Philius)
    or
    Invite Status: Invite Not Required

    This is to openly let people know if you still need an invite, or if you've already received one. This will make it easier for people like myself who'll want to silently hand out invites to those who need, without being bombarded and/or harassed for them.

    Message to Moderators:
    This method will in turn make your job easier as well. I've been a moderator on two different forums, and sometimes it can get a little hectic. This will hopefully ease the flow of people opening countless threads asking for invites. People will know you need an invite by simply by your presents within the forums, thus encouraging people to be active to get noticed.

    Moderators. If you agree and approve of this method, perhaps 'Sticky it' for future reference. I don't know if anyone will follow me on this, but it's my idea to help everyone out.

    Q&A How do I add a Signature?
    Click on your profile picture on the top left corner, select the 'signature' option. Copy and paste your tag, and add some color with the "A" icon that has a line under it.

    Nice idea, but you've got to know that people will still be begging for invites. You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink ;)

    I have no doubt there probably will, but perhaps people can reference this post, and not allow it to die.

    This is a good idea, but you should add the type of invite you want:
    Invite Status: Awaiting Invite for 64gb version

    Well there are chances for people who are desperate for an invite to bump on those members who status would be "Invite not required".. They would keep asking them to send an invite..

    I appreciate your idea.. but i just told u my suggestion :)

    This is what I'm afraid would happen, you would get flooded with requests for invites.

    It's possible... However if that's the case, you can simply remove the tag, and pretend you never heard it before ^_~
