New here to PM. One thing I have noticed immediately is being spammed by those wanting me to use their code or link. Can there be a better way to share the awesomeness of PM with others? I want to share why this is annoying, so that I can get it out there to there rest of the community. The number one reason is it's disingenuine. It ends up sounding like that long lost friend that you had that calls you up and wants to come over. You are so excited to see them; you offer them coffee. As you sit on the couch sipping, all of a sudden they pull out an iPad from their bag. A bag you watched them bring in, but you were not sure what was in it. Maybe a gift they brought, perhaps some old pictures from when you were in school together.
Nope, none of those things! They bring out the iPad and try to start selling you insurance, or a timeshare. And you quickly realize that they have not been upfront. They are just another salesman/salewomen.
All this to say. STOP IT! It's annoying, and you come off as someone who is not being honest. Can we have some contribution from this community for a better way to market this?
Here are some possible solutions:
Give a 1.00 Reward for a post to social media.
Give a 1.00 Reward with a nifty add if someone puts it up as their Facebook canvas.
You know I get the links. But maybe people can be trained to have a bit of etiquette.
If I'm off base here, just call a spade a spade. If I'm not, please contribute a solution to mass spamming.

Instead of a call center, this community is the support forum for PM subscribers.
Member on this community forum should not spam other members for the purpose giving out your referral code.
I'm sorry you had to go through that. There's some value to people offering up their code. I missed out on my initial $10 credit because I wasn't aware that there was something in it for me as well. If someone had reached out to me then, I might have been $10 richer today, who knows 😛
I'm hoping more people will take your advice though, its cool to share your code but put in a bit of effort to make it a welcoming, informative experience rather than an onslaught of random numbers.
Welcome to PM! Would you like to use my referral code? JK 😜
If you joined PM recently ask one of your friends for a referral code and then use the chat bot SIMon (? Lower right) to contact a moderator and have your code applied to your account. Looking at community questions/ solutions other people have gone this route after the fact.
It actually worked out for me, I didn't know about it at first, or have an existing friend on PM... I get what you mean, but worked out well in my case
@Naepalm This happend to me too. I actually did not have a code at the time so I was happy to get 10$ in my account from someone giving me their refferal in my inbox. But If they are actually spamming you like sending the same message over and over again then that's a report. But I just ignore them.
