Default Referral List

Is there a way to see a list of players I have referred? I've recently been posting my link to some new people and I know some have joined however I got logged out so I lost the referral posts to see who they were. I'd like to chat to them to help them with the game.

Unfortunately no, that would require an interation of the whole playerbase because the only referral connection points from their account to yours, not vice versa. You do get a message when a referral of yours makes an account like "Such and such
has just created an account using your referral link. You will get TC's from their purchases as long as their account doesn't have the same e-mail, buyer info, or IP address as yours."

Thanks for the response Glitchless. I have seen that message however I am always logged in and if I get disonnected or the server reboots I lose any messages currently there. I know I had a referral earlier today but I was disconnected before I made note of the name.

Anyway it's a shame it's not easy to find this out as supporting these new players in the game would help them to enjoy the game more and possibly become a paid player thus getting you more money and me more TC's of course

This is actually something that would be really easy to do, but the game apparently doesn't use an SQL database for storing its data or else Glitchless could just go:
Code:
SELECT `Account`.`AccountName` FROM `Account` WHERE `Account`.`ReferralID` = ?AccountID
with the ?AccountID parameter being the ID number of the account whose referrals you're wishing to look up.

A query like this normally would involve a full scan of every account in the account table, but indexing the ReferralID column would reduce the problem to a simple index seek.

Or you could create a new table containing UserID and ReferralID thus making it rather easy to look this up every time

damn glitch

any chance your able to try and create a list, much like the ignore list??

and im same with night, cause we are both australian, and alot of people that play are overseas in dif timezones, the referals we usually get, log in in the middle of the night for us.

not to mention, a disconnect will cause us to lose any info we could of gained.
