Just wondering, besides the obvious (same ip, cancelling right away) what could put a ref on hold? And how can I have him turn green again? Thanks guys...

PS-I just got approved for $250 Paypal on flashipods...! YEAH!!!

If hes red it will be hard to get him off hold. He probably has more then one account, go create a support ticket, quickest way for you to get an answer.

One of my accounts recently went red when they submitted for approval and it is likely due to the fact that we are currently living in the same house in the town of our university, so we have both logged in from the same IP.

However, I knew this might be a problem so I asked Trainn if it would be okay since I signed up for the site from home and not here. Their response was that they can differentiate between college locations so yes they may sign up.

So I had two people I lived with sign up. I also clarified that we do not specifically live on campus and they said again that as long as they are in a college/higher education location they'll be able to tell the accounts apart.

Apparently there was a miscommunication somewhere in there because my referral is now on hold. It's kind of unfair really because from their responses I understood that it would be okay for them to sign up.
