How to send invites to the Bulb community

Hi Everyone :earth_asia:

It’s been fantastic to see all the interesting discussions we’ve been having recently from smart heating systems, to ideas for new gas meters, and even on which green power station is the most beautiful.

With all these discussions going on don’t let others you think would contribute carry on oblivious - send them a formal invite to the Bulb community! :bulb:

This is an important step for ensuring the growth of our community but also for keeping discussions lively and fun.

We will be rewarding the first three people to get a Campaigner badge with some tasty chocolate from the Gola Rainforest. :deciduous_tree: :chocolate_bar:

(To learn more about badges, please check out Trevor’s great thread)

Here are the steps on how to invite your friends/family to our community:

Step 1:

To invite someone you must have Trust Level 2 or Member status:

Get to trust level 2 by…

  • Visiting at least 15 days, not sequentially
  • Casting at least 1 like
  • Receiving at least 1 like
  • Replying to at least 3 different topics
  • Entering at least 20 topics
  • Reading at least 100 posts
  • Spend a total of 60 minutes reading posts

Step 2:

Once you have this status, you need to click your profile picture in the top right corner.

(should look like this)

Step 3:

Then double click your username.

Step 4:

You will then be taken to your profile page. Find and click ‘invites’.

Step 5:

You will be taken to the invites page. Here you can find the invites you sent out and also see who has accepted your invitation.

Here you will need to click ‘send invite’

Step 6:

Here a pop-up will open where you can just enter your friends email address and send. This will send out a basic message asking them to join the Bulb community.

However, I recommend clicking ‘custom message’ to add a personal touch.

And that is it.

If you invite 1 user you will get the Promoter badge (Très Chic)

If you invite 3 users you will receive the Campaigner badge ( win the choccy & have a cool new title like me) :chocolate_bar:

If you invite 5 members you will receive the Champion badge (+ instant legend status).
