I have gotten this a few times...

The ref is grey and says
Joined, but offer not completed.
User did not join via referral link.[/quote9cce2f25ab]

But how did it happen? Obviously they did click on my link because they got my referral and they are on my list...

I do not know who they are, I just want hope to get if they go green.

i have 6 grays and 6 greens (and a shitload of yellows) at freedigitalcameras. searching this forum doesn't really give me a conclusive idea what the grays really are, so what's going on?

I heard it means the user is either put on HOLD or
the user used your link to get to the free site but then
saw that it was you who will be referring them so "they" changed the
address to not give you the credit ....

that really sucks. so i refered them there, but i don't get credit? i'd already have my camera now. as it is, i still need 4 greens.

or it could be something else. Just PM Jake, he can help with the grays

[quote6162012416="Jake"]That means they didn't register correctly. Its kind of a grey area result. Their account was partially created but won't count towards your referrals because they didn't do it properly.

... I think that is it. I really do not need anything more. I was just curious.
