I don't have the Okay from typhoon, and I don't think my account will be able to add items to players, but I was thinking players should get rewarded for referring their friends, with what, I don't know yet, maybe cash points, maybe ingame money, ingame exp, I don't have this figured out yet, however I do have 2 methods of How to do this, both ways the referrer has to use a form that would be included on the page that the recruit a friend is on, that form would have a character that the recruited player plays on and/or they're website account. It should probably be they're website account since some players have/will have more than one character and some may lie to say that that character is they're friends when it's really theirs.
Anyone with web developing skillz: I cannot have the referral system be on this database, which causes an issue. I have 3 ways that I can do it that I can think of, a Zoho creator app for it, a google documents form, direct email form. I cant decide which to use, all of them are easy for me to setup. I would prefer to have a database type thing I can edit, so at the moment I'm thinking Zoho is the way to go.
if someone were to create a database specifically for that for me I would possibly decide to do that. Just remember I can't host the database on the same server as the website.
