Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

On the plus side. your account info on STF shows you the status of the sent key.
So as long as it's not been used you are probabbly still able to give it away manually. Or is it tied to the mail adress you sent it too?

Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

Tied to the email address it was sent to. Doesn't appear to be any way to edit it, so can't redirect it to another account, hence me saying I didn't want to waste another invite by having to send one to another account. Status shows as "offered", meaning they sent the email.

Honestly, not that worried about it. I sent it to the email he suggested. He can either check that account or not. He doesn't post here outside of asking for the key, so not gonna lose sleep over it. It's in his email if he wants it...

Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

i can try to get it to resend, but only to the prywolf@yahoo email i already used. Will see if I can get it to do that tonight. You implied your other email wasn't going to work, and didn't want to waste an invite, so I used the one you told me to. Not sure why you'd give out an email if it was full, and why you'd mass-delete the account's emails if you were looking for one, but that's another issue I guess...

And that is the reason I don't send keys to Ensigns per E-Mail on this board. May suck for legitimite new members, but the keys are to valuable (for real buddies) to give away to potential fishing... people.
Although I don't understand what those referal keys could possibly be exploited for.
users of those keys can't use public game chat I believe and can only access space dock plus Azura.
Precisely for the reasons stated above, i wouldn't send out a buddy key to a low participator.

Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

Eh, like I said, don't know anyone IRL that wants a buddy key, and people here aren't knocking down the door for them, so no real loss...

Valmoric, here's the deal: I don't know if I can resend it or not. Not a lot of options on that page, but looks like I tried it. If you don't have the email, let me know. I can't PM you, but I CAN post the key code and you can enter it yourself. I'll delete my post once you use the key. let me know, and I'll post the code.

Edit: Nevermind, I just manually emailed the code to both of your addresses. Just make sure you sign up with the prywolf@yahoo account, or it probably won't work...

Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

Besides, I think they dropped the referral system, as some players managed to start the F2P ahead of time because of it...

Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

Are the buddy card keys tied to each player's account? That is, do I get credit if someone uses one of mine? Thanks.

This question is about the 3 buddy cards that came in the Collector's edition.

Can you please PM me one of those buddy keys? I just need a couple days of gold membership. I never bought retail so the key should work. Thanks!

Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

Can't imagine they didn't fix this loophole now that F2P has gone live. Well, given their track record, maybe not, but still. You just want it so you can keep all the Gold priviledges (extra slots, etc) after it expires and you go to silver status, right?

Can we just close this thread, given that it's free to play, so only possible use would be for people to try and cheat the system?

Re: Buddy Keys for Star Trek Online

Scout101 - LOL, be careful slapping the F2P players around. You'll get branded a troublemaker (like me). :-P . Anyway, I think you need to hold Gold membership for 30 days to retain any of the benefits.

Leptoon - Hmm, let me think about it. This is the first time I've seen you on the forum. Would you still be interested in the buddy key if it doesn't provide any permanent benefit?
