Unhappy My referral ID...

Alright, so I've had a few blogs, YT vids, etc up for the past few weeks, and have gotten absolutely no referrals. People have told me they signed up and that they did offers. This time, I watched a guy on team viewer actually click my referral link in an MSN window, sign up, and get $.78. My question is, how come I'm not getting credited whatsoever? I even had others sign up just to see if my # of referrals went up, to no avail..
This shouldn't be advertising, since this is the R1 forums, but this IS the correct format for a referral link right? http:// www. rewards1 .com/[TRACKING ID] (r_6ydxnyb)
It doesn't seem to work, which is frustrating me a lot.. Somebody please explain. I suppose there could be a delay in the referral crediting, but he did these offers at ~9PM last night.

yes that is correct. thats the way to do it
have you tried visiting via that link and signing up yourself? clear cookies first
sign up and see if you get yourself just as a test.

to be honest i'm looking at your referrals and you have absolutely 'none'
also i edited your referral link out of the post.

That's the correct tracking ID.. And my vid got removed(my stupidity), but here's a quick blog I made a couple weeks ago. http://www.msptz.blogspot.com/
Second thought, the link I had under the youtube video was http://tinyurl.com/SignU*********. Weird that it's bleeping it. It's "Sign Up 4 Rewards" with no spaces..
I suppose that it's possible tinyurl is doing something funny, however the person I'm referring to in my original post clicked my un-masked referral link which was the tracking ID r_6ydxnyb. If needed I can also get his user ID, as he's somebody I frequently chat with over MSN.

Alright guys, I investigated this problem myself and got the same results;

Alright, here's what I did;

First, I decided to see how the cookie would show. I used my username as a referral link and got this as a result;
http://www.pirated.me/rewards1/r1-1.png

Next I copied and pasted your referral link. Here I noticed two odd things, one being the address bar dropped the /content and the second being no referral_id cookie;
http://www.pirated.me/rewards1/r1-2.png

With that in mind, I tested my own tracking link and got nearly the same result, no referral_id cookie at all;
http://www.pirated.me/rewards1/r1-3.png

Lastly, and just for the fun of it, I checked my referral link using my R1 account number, and it worked perfectly;
http://www.pirated.me/rewards1/r1-4.png

As you can see, something is wrong here. For now I suggest you begin using your username or R1 account number as your link. I will post a thread about this in the forum and ask for others to verify my findings, and then we'll call attention to it from R1 staff.

Nice find mate :)

Alright, thanks for investigating for me. It would be a nice find if I didn't get screwed out of some cash . I also noted that it dropped the /content, but I simply thought it was Rewards1 and that it was natural. All well, sux for me.

Generating IDs doesn't get you referrals. I lost about 100 referrals last month due to this. I'm done reffing here...

@Blockis
I had no idea of that myself, I don't see the point in tracking ID's if they don't count as referrals o_O

I believe that they're supposed to, seeing as pyros showed concern, but they don't. For whatever reason.
