Problem with Refferal Mail from microsoft Rockstar contest ! RRS feed

  • Question

  • many of my friends who recieved the invitation were not able to register with this contest because the link that is contained in the mail was not actually parsed well.

    say this is what the link microsoft rockstar sends


    but actually some browsers and im's does not understand the above link because its was not universally parsed this is because microsoft uses forward  slash in the link while it should be backward slash for urls....like below


    so everytime i send a link i have to change the slash and then send them again to my friends for registering.....

    Dear admin please change the slash in the invite system so that it will be parsed well and anyone can click it easily....


    Also i think it is not safe to display once's email address in the link since it is easily possible to steal others credit...

  • I dont know why the admins are still ignorant about this. they should solve it immediately. because many people will think that the link is not working, and will sign in a fresh account, may be then the points wont be given the referrer.

  • Three ways to resolve this problem of the wrong link Refferal email.

    1. Let the admins be aware about this prob, and wait until they change it.
    2. Mail your friends telling to change the \ to /
    3. Mail your friends telling to remove the http:// and try without it.

  • There is no response from the Admin side till,

    better after sending an invitation to your friend please copy and paste the following

    in the above link replace the yourfriendsemailid with the email id of your friend and forward it them, once they register with it you will earn point but make sure you have sent an invite to the same email address you put here..
