Uncle Bob gets invite before forum members...

    ByrdDroid , Jul 20, 2014 :
    Does it bother anyone else that because people who buy an OPO get invites to give to family and friends, who never signed up for the forum or ever posted a single post, somebody's Uncle Bob gets an invite and can order an OPO long before someone who signed up on the forum and has waited for an invite? It seems that the more invites that go out, the more non-forum members who get to jump ahead in line, and the further behind those of us who are higher numbers fall behind in the queue to get an OPO. How about taking care of forum members before strangers and Uncle Bob?
    I realize that some members are giving their invites to forum members, but often only after contests, writing poems, begging, etc., while Uncle Bob doesn't have to do a thing...
    Just wondering what other high number forum members think of this aspect of the invite system...

    since this is a community based program, i'd like to think, that most of the people who will receive invites, will give them to the community in the forum.

    Being a 58k boy I would have to totally agree...but I guess we will have to hope invitees have a soft spot for the rest of us.

    All these invites should have really been in a competion and not given to share but that's just my opinion

    You have to grow the market away from geeks who sit in one tiny corner of the Internet.

    Duh.

    but isn't it our own free choice who we want to give the invite to? i don't think there is a conflict of interest assuming that the choice we made is for the one who we think would appreciate the phone.

    This bothers me a lot, but I can't do anything about it. If I had any invites, I would give them to forum members, because I know what it's like to wait. If my friends want one, they can have their share of waiting in line.

    not at all ... thats the point of their whole invite thing ... to share tthe "good news" with friends n family .. thats the way they designed it ... the ultimate referral self marketing system of a valued but scarce resource - toy :)
