    Hey everybody, Its time everyone
    Stop Posting Invite Links in their Threads.

    Why not?

    The Bots, THE !@#$%& BOTS.
    Lazy people (but smart enough to create bots) create automated scripts to find and claim all open invite links in the forums, other websites and the WWW. They then use it to sell the invites or sell the phones themselves.

    If a user want to share an invite, just

    • send a private message or
    • send it to the user's email.
    Its simple, safe and the bots can do nothing about it.


    I also want to thank the genuine people who share their invites to deserving users.

    Keep sharing and Never settle​

    Cheers :)


    P.S. Kindly find detailed info in the second post in this thread by @nguser .


    Edit
    : A very kind Bot told me that not all bots are bad.
    Some bots help in reclaiming invites which they share again with the OnePlus Community.
    Kudos Mr. Bot :)

    Hi everyone,

    please follow @llcooljerry advice and DON'T POST INVITE LINKS on public threads because bots will claim them faster than anyone else.
    If you post the whole link (https://account.oneplus.net/invite/claim/KS8P-AKJS-3UC2-KWWS) on a public thread, bots will claim it in no time and the invite will go to waste.

    Also, don't post invite codes either. Bots can be programmed to recognize invite codes pattern even without the full link.

    If you want to post an invite code on public threads then upload a screenshot of the code itself like this:

    invite_1.png

    You can also swap digits and tell users what is the correct order, put them upside down or backwards or whatever you prefer. This is how I like to share invites:
    And so on!

    I've even used a speech synthesizer :D

    There are endless possibilities. You can share invites and have fun too.

    Work as a team and help each other instead of feeding the BOTS ;)

    Thanks bro. Your post is much more clearer and explanatory.I think it should be a thread rather than a post. :D

    Cheers

    Good info. Thanks!
    This might be a dumb question but why would people use BOTS to do this?

    So they can buy the phone and then sell it at a higher price.

    You're welcome in advance but, no offense, I tend to ignore beggars. The only way to get an invite from me is the Ninja Invites thread where I post invite codes randomly. See you.
