the problem was people posting their links and advertising it as something else, look at the dev post quoted in this thread, it doesnt say dont link your referral it says dont spam it, no ones getting banned and no posts with properly labeled links are getting censored so your no referrals except in sigs crusade is a thing you made up yourself

This is kind of a non-sequitur, but I've never understood why they give incentives for getting people already subscribed to click the link.
Below this is my referral link. If you press it you get free stuff and I get free stuff. This makes you, me....and Bioware happy, but don't let that stop you!

Actually, I think you may want to acquaint yourself with the rules, first one being below;

Quote:
To keep the Service a compliant, fun, fair and safe gaming environment for everyone, you may not engage in any of the following behavior:

Post, transmit, promote, or distribute Content that is illegal or promote or encourage any illegal activity including hacking, cracking or distribution of counterfeit software. (See also “Mod, Hack and Cheat Prohibitions” below).

REFERRAL LINK - Previous subscribers get seven days of subscription, one Complimentary Character Transfer (and more unlocks) - New players get a Jumpstart bundle with unlocks, for free!- Literally the small print

The problem is that posting a referral link in a post solely to post a referral link is considered spam. It doesn't matter if you do it 10 times of just 1. It's considered spam and this is backed up by the fact that any time somebody does it, it gets deleted in short order. I don't know if actions are taken against the accounts but the topics/posts are deleted because it's considered spam. You can post it in response to somebody asking for one, I think (since it's relevant to the topic at hand and thus not spam), but beyond that it'll get deleted. It's happened numerous times including once in the past week or so.

Exactly. Just as the rules define posts of IBL/IBTL/etc. to be spam. I think "can i haz yer stuffs" and "nice necro" (with nothing more) should also be considered spam.

Seriously, learn to stop and think before you post.
