View Full Version : Second Forum Referral Program

07-06-2010, 11:45 AM
After the success of our first referral program, we've decided to do one more to open up the beta a little more so that as many of you who want to be a part of DOF's development can! We're looking to greatly expand the third and fourth beta stages, and we want to see you there! In the time leading up to our publisher announcement, we've been having a little bit of trouble sharing Dawn of Fantasy with the rest of the world, and in the past, word of mouth has proved a very effective tactic. Therefore, we ask that you talk to all your friends about Dawn of Fantasy and invite them to our forum. We've got plenty of incentives for you and your friends, so please check them out and decide if it's something you would be interested in!

This contest is a little different than the last referral contest as well, in that you will not be competing against your fellow forumers. We do not have a limited number of keys to give out, and we actually want to reward as many keys as possible. So it's very straightforward - if you want a key, complete one of the five referral goals below and the key is yours.

Contest Goals & Incentives:

Invite 10 friends with 10+ posts each by July 17th... receive three 2nd CB Round Keys - one for you, two for your friends to play with you
Invite 5 friends with 10+ posts each by July 17th... receive one 2nd CB Round Key
Invite 3 friends... receive one 3rd CB Round Key


To refer a friend, all you have to do is give them the link below and ask them to register an account on our forums and post at least one contributive post.

http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/index.php?referrerid=$userid
(where $userid is your unique ID number - check your profile URL to locate)

If the referred user does not follow that link, you can still earn a point if they enter your username in the referrer box when they register:

http://reverieworld.com/departments/marketing/alex/referrer.png

To find out more about our referral system, please check out our FAQ (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/faq.php?faq=vb_board_usage#faq_vb_referrals_explai n).

While we won't be giving out any 2nd CB Round Keys after July 17th, the final deadline for this contest is August 25th. Only users referred between today's date and the deadline will count.

Only users with original IP addresses (meaning they did not register on the same computer that is synced with your account) and who have made at least one contributive post, in a forum other than The Pub, will count for a point.

If this isn't the right program for you, check out the two other ways you can currently score a beta key:
Facebook Referral Program (http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=112418172120572&topic=124) - Refer as many friends to our Dawn of Fantasy Facebook page as possible to earn a beta key
Fan Fiction Competition (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1574) - Write up a Fan Fiction entry using the newly published Lore and Language Guide for a key

Good luck, and thanks for helping to get Dawn of Fantasy's name out! See you in the beta!

Sounds good recently found this about a week ago signed up for forums to view screenies in the RSP. However im not exactly sure where to find my unique id number could anybody enlighten me as to where it is?

(I see that he mentions URL but not sure on specifics maybe an example might help me)

Click on your name and then the "View Public Profile" option, and then look up at the address bar. It will say http://...member.php?u=xxx, where xxx is your ID. So mine is 7 and yours is 1944.

Alternatively, click on the FAQs (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/faq.php?faq=vb_board_usage#faq_vb_referrals_explai n) link and, about three lines down, it will give you your full referral link with your ID in place.

edit question : What is considered a contributive post like if I ask a question and it is answered that counts as contributive?

If it's a question about the game that can't be found looking over our FAQs or Wiki profile, then yes.

Nope, only the key(s) listed next to your highest accomplished goal.

Read the post. As it is the same IP address, it's most likely against the contest rules.

Only users with original IP addresses (meaning they did not register on the same computer that is synced with your account) and who have made at least one contributive post, in a forum other than The Pub, will count for a point.

They'll have to post 10 post each in order to get a 2nd CBT key. So you'll probably get a 3rd CBT key.

We've reached the deadline for second beta stage keys - but remember that the contest is still open for third stage keys! :)

Winners will be announced shortly.

Alex Walz

Well nobody qualified for a second beta stage key. I assume that most of our active forumers already have keys, but if you don't, remember that you can still win a third or fourth stage key from this contest! :)

Thanks to everyone who has participated so far!

I think we still have about 7-10 days, but I wouldn't mind confirmation either. I know timetables can change a lot during beta. ;)

Yeah we're in CB2 atm. It started on the 21st of July. The next CB (3) was scheduled to start in the middle of august. We are working to knock those bugs out so it can start sooner!

Nice. I have never seen this for joining a beta. I think you might make it into the open betas as the 3rd is probably filled. But good luck.

Just saying, but asking to be in won't get you in. You'll have to get in like the rest of us.

Also, just letting you know, you listed free to play MMOs and games that only had open betas(With the exception of APB, though most people who applied got into it).

What do you mean join like the rest of us? I have been searching all over the web and every place I went to said to sign up on the forums and even the forums said to sign up on the forums so I have no idea what your talking about.

People who join the beta and are active have a better chance at getting into the beta. The 1&2 betas a pretty much joined and the 3rd is about to start. Most betas have something for you to join the beta, but like most betas its up to the devs to choose how gets into the beta.

Be patient, read the Fantasy Fridays and wait to see if you get in.

Welcome, chrispytoes. Most people have gotten into the beta by winning a competition.

At the moment, you can get into the 3rd or 4th stage of beta by referring other people to this forum but you need to do that before the 24th of August.

For more information about the the Forum Referral Program, read the first post of this thread (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1580) ;)

08-09-2010, 10:28 PM
Ok so I know how you're dying to get into a beta but give it just a little bit more time here. For round 2 I received an email prior to the beta that was sent in a group email to all second round participants. So assuming that everything is kosher, you should get an email in a week or two with all the other round 3 participants. I would point out that all five friends most likely need 10 posts apiece from looking at the the part you quoted. So feel free to get in and starting contributing y'all.:cool:

Brian Shingles

crispytoes, don't forget about this part:
Only users with original IP addresses (meaning they did not register on the same computer that is synced with your account) and who have made at least one contributive post, in a forum other than The Pub, will count for a point.

The friends you referred need to make at least one contributive post - there haven't been 5 new people posting since my last post so it looks like they haven't done that part yet. Those friends will also have needed to register on the forums from a computer other than yours.

As mentioned before, the closing date is August 24th. After that date Alex and others will check to see who has qualified for a beta key and notify them via email.

Your enthusiasm is apprecieted but you'll have to be patient. In the meantime, don't forget to check out the Fantasy Friday posts in the Media Fair (http://www.reverieworld.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=9) to see some of the things you'll find in Dawn of Fantasy.

There was a discussion earlier in this thread about what is considered a contributive post that you might want to read.

By the way, we won't be giving out any 4th beta stage keys for this contest. Kon wants to expand the 3rd stage, so if you won a 4th beta key, you'll automatically be upgraded! :)

And let's extend this another 24 hours since I just sent out a newsletter, so there will probably be some new interest.

Thanks for your referrals! And as you've probably heard, we are looking to expand the next beta, so I did wave a couple of the requirements. :) I won't keep you waiting any longer, so without further ado, here are the results:

The contest winner, with 8 referrals, is our very own chrispytoes! Chrispytoes will be given two third beta stage keys - one for himself and one for a friend, or whoever begs the loudest.

The runners-up, who will each receive a third beta key, are teejai, Silent_Lamb, Peppovitch, and SoCalDistortion.

And then to get the fourth beta started, I'd like to extend a fourth beta stage key to the rest of the participants: Taylawlz, Dijia37, Gruber12, and adamater. We also seem to have had a lot of referrals from members who have already won at least one beta key - Miclee, Reapist, WilsonMG, Vimes, sirdustin, and Mikey - and they will also be given a fourth beta key to give to a friend or family member if they so choose in gratitude of their continued support.

Congrats and looking forward to working with you all in the beta! :)

If you've won a key, your email will be retrieved from your forum account. If you've won a second (or in some cases, a third) key, please PM me with the name and email of the person you'd like to give it to. Thanks!

Ty for the well wishes guys! Although my post count is low and my forum account is only a year old, I have been watching the development of this game like a hawk since i first discovered their original site and forum. DoF has come a long way and it's success has become very important to me. Because of this, ill be putting in every effort to help the developers make this game the best that it can possibly be.

Thanks for the opportunity to become a part of the process. It does mean a lot to me.

Danny's been really good about making sure everyone on the list gets the beta. He'll most likely make a thread in this forum right after sending out the emails. And if at that point, you still haven't received an email, I'd advise you to send him a quick PM. :)

Anyways, excited to start testing and it gives me a reason to get away from the wife :D

Most people stumble across this game, meaning they didn't see something about and come looking. Once it gets close to release and Reverie announces their Publisher(s), the advertisements will start, bringing this game to more gamers attention.

This game is very promising and since MMOs are the in thing right now, I think once advertisements start, it will draw attention.

Alex Walz
08-28-2010, 11:28 PM
Yeah, I wouldn't worry about it. Our publisher seems to have some very ambitious plans for DOF that I'll hopefully be able to help out with. :)

Just to let everyone know, I know you are all excited. You don't get your beta key until...like a day or so before the beta starts. You will get an email from Danny. So when you get an email from him, you are getting you key.
