Following my question here I’m suggesting this feature.
I think shared content leading to a signup should count as an invitation
I believe users are more likely to share interesting content than send email invitations.
Each time a user lands on Discourse through a ?u=username link and then signs up, this should be counted as an invitation by @username
This could appear like this on the user profile (screen from /users/username/invited/redeemed in french )
- Able to track influencers based on actual signups not only traffic
- Removing steps to invite people (literally 2 clicks away on any URL)
- Risk of fake signups (but no incremental risk compared to email invitations)
Who else is interested in this?
Any comments or ideas?
