    Well, I know Ian used to run a ton of referral contests on Marapets in the past, but he hasn't done any since - but then again, why haven't pet game owners ran one now?

    Like you could giveaway an expensive cash shop item, a limited edition pet, etc, anything is possible.

    What do you guys think? Should some of the major pet games run a referral contest? Its a good way to get people talking about your pet site on the web - remember, publicity is publicity.

    I haven't ran one yet, but I am planning on running one in the near future. I am thinking of at least giving out virtual cash as prize, and limited edition items.

    Although I haven't though everything out completely, I'm currently thinking of a reasonable amount of virtual currency as prize (keeping the current economy of my vps in mind) and I'll be creating limited edition wearable items for the pets. =)

    Usually points are good - then special referral-earnt items.
    That's what I would do. Give things for referrals that you can't find elsewhere on the site - more incentive to refer.

    A top score list is also good - encourages competition for referrals.
    Trophies are also nice.
