If you have a Paid or Permanent account, you can now send 10 of your non-Paid friends a $10 coupon. Your friend will be able to purchase a Paid Account for $9.95 (instead of $19.95) for one year by enrolling in our automatic payment plan or make a manual payment of $15 (instead of $25).

  • All Paid and Permanent accounts can send out the coupons by clicking here (it's also under Friends -> Holiday promotion in the site header)
  • You can also send to people not on your Friends list by manually entering the username in the field provided
  • If your friend declines the invitation, it will be returned to your available invitation pool and you'll be able to send to someone else
  • You can send the invitations until January 15th

While I do have friends with basic accounts (obviously), it'd be nice if I could also send the coupons to friends with paid accounts and they can use it for extra userpics or something.

(Edited to fix really shitty wording. =P)

I hope you know that "gyp" is a derogatory term for the ethnic Romani people. :/

Having lived in Italy, I really don't care. I mean, ignoring the fact that almost, like, half the words in the English language originally meant something else *rolls eyes*

What does living in Italy have to do with anything? Did you mean to say that you already have a prejudice?

"Gyp" is short for "gypsy" and no, they're not all dirty thieves. It's an offensive word to someone of Roma descent, so is it that hard to work it out of your daily vocabulary to avoid hurting someone's feelings?

It's like saying "guys, it's okay, I can say the n-word because I lived in Africa and I've seen black people! Hurrdurr!"

I think mneiai made a mental connection between Romani and the Italian city of Roma, thus the comment about living in Italy. Thank you for bringing up the issue that it's a derogatory term for an entire ethnic group! ♡

This. My paid account friends are the ones most likely to actually use this. Ones with free accounts have free accounts because they don't care about paid ones.

Exactly. I was a bit excited for this because it seemed great for paid account friends, but people with free accounts aren't going to care.
