Creating an invitation system

    @citizenjake

    I posted this idea over at the mu.wordpress.org forum’s but since I would like to use it in conjunction with buddypress might as well post it over here.

    Essentially I’d like a plugin/hack where each new member is given a number of invites, say 5. They can invite 5 people to join but no more. Each of the people they invite get 5 invites themselves and so on.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to go about doing this? Or is there already a plugin that would work for this? Any help/ideas very much appreciated.

    If Andy doesn’t do that, in Xmass holidays i will make a plugin for bp to invite people with own e-mail address, like facebook to invite people

    I was thinking kind of how gmail, in its early days, gave each new users 100 invites to send to people and you could only join the network through the invites.

    I found this plugin for regular WP installs, Release Plus, http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/register-plus/, that has a lot of the functionality I’m thinking about but doesn’t mesh with Andy’s invite system. Would be great to have something that plays nice with BuddyPress.

    nicola if you create this plugin and want to publicize on BuddyPress Italy site u’re welcome.

    Another member of BP IT staff is coding a plugin to invite friends from other social network and contact from the mail account like gmail, msn, ecc.

    good arturo, i think i’ll release my code on my blog http://notsecurity.com and there i’ll publicize it ;) I don’t write code for others, i write code for me, then, if buddypressers use it, good, isn’t it ?

    I’m watching on register plus, i think it’s a good plugin, is it released under gpl ? I’ll see that, bye!

    i was thinking in something totally non exclusive

    as sending invites to selected contacts in gmail, hotmail, yahoo, Hi5 or other contact platforms.

    if automatic want to develop their own buddypress platform such thing will be released.

    Nicola, ok. (english version)

    Nicola, non volevo che creassi codice per me o altri, ma solo pubblicizzarlo come progetto italiano essendo tu tale. Il lavoro e’ tuo, ed e’ giusto che ne abbia tutti i meriti. Semplicemente era una richiesta di collaborazione, se volevi, per il progetto BuddyPress Italy tutto qui.

    Spero che ora ci siamo chiariti… (italian version :D )

    Yesterday i was thinking, that i could do more priority to this plug-in in my work if someone sustain my development with money, someone that would like have this plugin and would like “pay” it ?

    I’m thinking for example there are 10 interested users, you will decide how much money would you like offer me and divide the total for each one.

    Update me, and tomorrow i will decide if i will develope this plugin as soon as possible or later..

    hi, you can try and download the invite friends plug-in. It is aviable on buddypress-it and buddypressDev.
