Well, I already help by posting info and such in the forums. But I could recommend the site to a few buds of mine. I have a number of friends who are fans of HM like myself, so I'll see what I can do as far as more viewers go. ^^

Oh, I'm going to buy Platinum from Amazon, I'll be sure to add the tag :D

Posted by: Jason Feb 12 2009, 12:57 AM

Thanks Skarlet, there's a link on the main website you can just click. ;3

Besides "digg"ing you could also use stumble upon. It's sort of similar but instead of going to a website it's just a little toolbar that you can add onto firefox. You put in your interests and when you click on the "stumble" button it takes you to a random website. If you add your website to the stumbled sites you could get more viewers...

There is a stumbleupon link/icon after you click comments on a news article. I was unable to add the articles to stumbleupon myself, but if it works for you, would you mind keeping an eye out for update and "stumble" them for me? That would be super awesome! Thanks! <3

hi I read you topic and I will do my beast to help you bye :jack_wink:

So the only way to donate money is to either send it through the mail or credit card? Bleeeh... Cannot do either really. They need to make it so you can pay through your bank account. :[

Posted by: Jason Aug 11 2009, 05:42 PM

Paypal does bank accounts. =o That and debit cards.

Posted by: IdlersDream Aug 11 2009, 05:45 PM

Hmm.. Okay, will check it out right now. :D

Posted by: Lenyo Aug 11 2009, 06:44 PM

Baw, if only I weren't 13 and my dad always see's what I'm spending with my debit card. >> I COULD just say it was something like the Wii Ware. Since he's pretty clueless. lalaexdee.gif

Posted by: IdlersDream Aug 12 2009, 03:31 PM

Lol, well with the amount of money I now have in my account they won't notice 20 dollars or around there missing. I just have to figure out what numbers they're asking for before I do it. :S

Posted by: Jason Apr 13 2010, 11:37 PM

Because of stupid Colorado tax laws, the tag is now ransto0d-20 instead of ransto-20, so please update your bookmarks! I updated the first post.



Posted by: Saffy Apr 14 2010, 08:32 PM

What do Colorado tax laws have to do with the name? I'm just curious.

Whoever just bought kingdom hearts through our referral link, you rock. <3

Posted by: Oscar Jul 23 2010, 08:54 AM

Why is that? Did something good happen? :D

Posted by: Saffy Jul 23 2010, 02:01 PM

It just means Ranch Story received a portion of the cost of the game.

Posted by: ClassicTyler Jul 24 2010, 07:13 AM

If I click that link and buy 100 Classic Books, will it help?
Or anything for that matter. Can we bulk-order? I tend to order 4-5 items on Amazon when purchasing things.

Would it still count? I'll be willing to do this if so.

Totally, I think it applies to everything on Amazon, even stuff sold there by third party merchants..just use http://www.ranchstory.co.uk/RSA.html to:

1.) Search for something
2.) Add to cart
3.) Return http://www.ranchstory.co.uk/RSA.html.. search something else
4,) Add to cart

Repeat for every item. :D

Posted by: ClassicTyler Jul 24 2010, 04:07 PM

Wonderful. I'll be sure to do this.

Once we're ready to check out, I assume it's normal operation, and use the check out button? lalatounge.gif

Yup, I think once something is added to your cart it's "entered" as a referral. Even if you wanted to change quantity (for bulk reasons) as well it would still count. lalaexdee.gif Everything after adding to cart you'd handle normally.

Posted by: ClassicTyler Jul 28 2010, 06:12 PM

I ordered 100 Classic Books through the referral link. I hope I did it right. D:

Sweet Jebus...the suspense is killing me.

Posted by: IdlersDream Sep 9 2010, 05:54 PM

I donated some money through PayPal... I'm pretty sure I did it right - it's my very first time ever using PayPal so I'm kind of scared it didn't work haha.

It's a small amount but it's all I can afford and I figured a even a little bit helps.

I have a question does the Amazon link work for pre-orders? Because I'm going to pre-order Rune Factory 3 from Amazon in a day or two and I will use the referral if it will work.

Okay I ordered it through the link you put. I hope I did it alright.

Posted by: Noviwan Dec 15 2010, 03:21 PM

I have just attempted to order a text book and an ipod by adding the tag to the links before adding them to the cart.

Posted by: Jason Dec 15 2010, 09:52 PM

Awesome thanks Noviwan and Pumpkin!

Which textbook (PM me!)?

Also to everyone else, let me know what you order and I'll award you with the appropriate feather!

Posted by: Pumpkin Patch Dec 16 2010, 08:57 AM

Thanks Jason :3 <3. I totally forgot about RF3. I've been so busy with SNES and Boy & Girl. I need really to beat that game....And finish my replay of RFF -_-.

Posted by: Crystal Talian Aug 10 2011, 11:54 PM

Just out of curiosity if I added that tag (&tag=ransto0d-20) like to my cart or something, would that work? I was just wondering because I'm saving for a big order on Amazon.

Also, how does it work? Is like a portion of the price or something goes to you guys? You get a certian amount for like referring? Just curious~

Posted by: Noviwan Aug 11 2011, 12:21 AM

its dependant upon the total purchase amount I believe

You basically go to the product page (not cart), then add the tag to the end and press enter to go to the new link, then click "add to cart".

And RS gets between 4 to 6% of the item(s) cost you purchased. So if you bought a $100 'thing', RS would get between 4 to 6 dollars for the referral.

Posted by: Oscar Aug 12 2011, 05:06 PM

Gosh, I order from Amazon all the time. I just ordered a bumper for my phone on there. I'll remember for next time.

Posted by: Crystal Talian Aug 18 2011, 12:08 AM

Thanks, Jason. =3
I just placed an order, so I hope I did it right.

Posted by: ZBoy Aug 22 2011, 01:12 AM

Okay, so I bought something on Amazon today. I added that tag to the end of the URL, but I'm not sure if it worked. I messaged you the details in a PM, Jason.

Posted by: Crystal Talian Sep 30 2011, 08:15 AM

I've bought some stuff recently.
I'll PM Jason to make sure it all went through . . .

Posted by: Noviwan Sep 30 2011, 10:57 AM

I plan on placing an order soon just a heads up

Posted by: Noviwan Jul 10 2012, 06:43 PM

If I did it right I should have just referred you guys on a dvd purchase GETTING BATMAN BEYOND THE COMPLETE SERIES!
