Referal Verification Code concept is poor !! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Friends ,

           I loose lots of my points due to this " VERIFICATION CODE IN MOBILE " .....bcoz my friends whom i refered doesnt entered the Verificatio code Properly ... So i have To loose my 50 points ...

     

    For Eg :

      The Letter ' O ' in english Will look like 0 in the mobile .......... So my referals Enter it wrongly  ...

     

    This concept of verification should be requested to Stopped .... Please ADMIN give the Verification code Easily .... Or stop this concept ..... I suggest to give only No's as REferal Verification Code.....

     

    What you guys think about It ???

    @Mohan,

    I agree with you. I think i also lost on 2 referrals due to the same problem. One peculiar thing is that one of my referrals told me that they entered the correct code, yet it was not accepted. Although compared to last contest's referrals, this concept decreases referral fraud, but instead is not serving its primary purpose.

    Anybody else feel the same way?

  • Hey Mohan...

     

    You are absolutely right...

    I strongly oppose this referral system.

     

    There must be only digits in verification code 

    or they must give 3 tries to enter the correct code.

     

    I have also lost 50 points. (because of no difference between 0 and O)

    Admin must correct this mistake.

    You are right.

    This concept will definately decrease referral fraud and this will be very good for us.

    but System requires improvement.

  • Ya I 2 agree.

    Moreover some of my referrals didnt even reach my friends. I told them to check the 'bulk' also. No use. I have lost hope on referral points. Waiting for the quiz.

  • Please avoid those symbols like

    '0' and 'o'

    'l' , '1' and 'I'

    Instead of these special characters may be used. or letters other than these can be used.

    Another method is that, the confirmation link can be mailed.

    Referrals should be sent to mobile and in mail to reach effectively

  • yes man , the symbols 0 and O, are misleading, i missed 2 referrals of my friends , cause they thought it was  (o) and not a 0.

  • I think the best suggestion so far is to use numbers instead of alphabets to avoid confusion. If extremely necessary, all the characters can be case sensitive alphabets.

     

    But a combination of both certainly leads to confusion...

  • Yes, the zero and alphabet O look very similar on the phones. MS should allow multiple tries!

  • Hey....the same thing has been happening from the past few days i guess....i've referred 4 friends....out of whom 2 ppl have already registered....but even by clicking on d link sent to them....the were directed to the default page where they had to register normally as we did....they dint get a verification code on their mobile,nor were they asked to fill it in.....is that weird or has it happened b4? I've already lost 2 ppl to this...!!!

  • @Harshil...
    The same kinda thing happened with my friends too...!!! 2 of my referrals...clicked on the link they got...but they were directed to the default homepage...and they had to register as we did.....no verification code got sent to them either coz they were directed to the default page....so it was equivalent as them registering by themselves....not like i referred them...!!!

  • hi adnan,

                i think we should forget that points .. and think forward to have a referal from now !!

  • I hope the Verification Code Concept is good...It helps to reduce referral fraud..

     

    But the verification code concept can be slightly changed, the reason is that many peoples including me lost 2 referral pointas my friend mistyped the code... So it is better the code be only numeric digits.. the alphanumeric be changed to Numeric Digits..

     

    Its my suggestion...
