, 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
to see some of the things you'll find in Dawn of Fantasy.
