No shortcode?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

today I read the tsu message

 

How does it work now?

 

Nothing has changed. They only use this to sign up people that would be normally lost. So if somebody arrives to the tsu homepage, they can register without shortcode. Actually, their shortcode is set to 'tsu' as they become children of official @tsu account.

 

But we can still use our short codes to sign up our friends or so.

 

There was a statement from Sebastian in this post - http://www.tsu.co/JonDunn/92686654:

 

"We have not changed this concept nor the algorithm. What has changed is that during this gush of press that is related to tsu, starting two days ago we enabled anyone coming through the press articles to http://www.tsu.coto sign up directly if the reporter did not give out their short code. This allows the network to strengthen itself by capturing new users who have not come in due to the efforts of the existing network. The traffic lifts ad rates and all boats. All short codes continue to work and statistics have captured that users are joining tsu at the same rates through existing user codes."

It seemed that Sebastian was not happy with some of us speculating about what had happened, but that is what people will do. Not all of us have direct access to the Tsu team. 


 


Anyway, it seems Tsu is doing well generally. Visitors and views keep on improving and that has to be good. It's not affecting my personal views much yet.

Hi,

 

Im new to Tsu. If they have desabled the short code option, how our network will grow? :shok:

 

Little confusion here? :fool:

They didn't disable this option for us. We can still invite people with our short code on tsu. What they did is following - there was a lot of tsu press about Facebook censorship and lot of high profile websites covered this Facebook action against tsu, including Huffington Post, Wired, Telegraph, and many many others. Unfortunately, these articles didn't attach their own shortcodes and the huge amount of people were landing on tsu homepage without short code.

 

Tsu management decided to temporarily open registrations for all who come because of this tsu press. These people become children of the official tsu account. This step is good for all of us - it will support the community, ad revenues will go up and most importantly - tsu is needs this growth if we want it to succeed.

 

We still have the option to invite people with our short code. Btw - it is not possible to create new account on mobile app without short code for example.

Actually when people get to the Tsu page they will see pictures of high profile members that includes their user names, so they could use those, but that does dis-advantage the rest of us. I think they should be made a child of a random active user to spread the benefit.


 


I'm still gaining a few children each week.

Yes, using the random short code on homepage would be cool. Someone could definitely win a lottery :) There is so many possible ways how to grow tsu and I like the fact it is up to us, users.

Hi Team,


 


Thankuuu both.


 


Few more doubts:


 


1. What will happen when a child delete his/her account. That person's childs will be linked to us?


 


2. What does Tsu meant by "copy right contents should not post". Which all can be a copy right content? some eg: plz. If someone violate the same how many warning do they get?


 


3. Tsu pays in India through cheque or PayPal? 


 


4. Anyone from India reedemed (tough question)  :lol:


 


5. How long will they take to approve a group. If i can get this approved, I can do unite Indian people and do a mass campaign to grow in India :aggressive:

SUGGESTIONS


 


If you have contacts with Tsu officials, please suggest them to invite some celibrities from Indian cinema or cricket. The entire India will come to Tsu :yahoo:  :yahoo:

No, they will not be linked to us. We will not become their parent, we will be still their grand parent. Children of deleted account stay as they are. Money from that person's account are given back to tsu community.

 

2. What does Tsu meant by "copy right contents should not post". Which all can be a copy right content? some eg: plz. If someone violate the same how many warning do they get?

 

On tsu, you can't post someone else work and get compensated for it. You can't download Google images or use images of someone else. But you can link to that image and give credit to the author. You can post YouTube videos as you are giving credit to the author. You can also post links to articles because you still give credit to the author. Without owner permission, you can't post his content. I don't know how many warnings you can get. I would just play by the tsu rules.

 

3. Tsu pays in India through cheque or PayPal?

 

PayPal.

 

4. Anyone from India reedemed (tough question)  :lol:

 

You can check hashtag #redemption for example - if you want to see some real tsu payments. I guess there was several payments to India, one of them is here - http://www.tsu.co/chandruslm/88377192

 

5. How long will they take to approve a group. If i can get this approved, I can do unite Indian people and do a mass campaign to grow in India :aggressive:

 

Few weeks I think. This is just temporary - until groups are still in BETA. Once the beta-testing is over, I think there will be no approval process (or very short). Groups should go out of beta in December.

 

If you have contacts with Tsu officials, please suggest them to invite some celibrities from Indian cinema or cricket. The entire India will come to Tsu :yahoo:  :yahoo:

 

I know that cricket is super-popular in India, however, inviting people to tsu is completely done by word of mouth of its users. It's up to people to bring some celebrities or cricket players :)

I read in few sites that Tsu will ban people without prior waring mails and proper reasons. why so?

 

We are putting lot of effort to add childs.If we are about to earn and got banned what would be our feelings :( :(

 

Is there any way to remove the ban ?

 

 

I believe there is few warnings before they ban your account. However, you can't break every tsu rule from begining, follow the rules and you will be okay. I don't know if they remove bans, may be worth to ask support@tsu.co

I've not heard of anyone being banned lately. There were issues a while back with people being accused of using 'bots' to boost their views. Some of them denied it. I think in general you have to behave really badly to get banned, e.g. by posting lots of spam or porn. As Tomas says you can appeal to support.
