Can’t people get extra space by “referring” themselves with multiple email addresses or is there a way dropbox prevents this?
For a referral to work, you need to install the app on your machine. So unless you have one machine/referral, no.
And if there is more than one computer? And you can always install and uninstall, right?
Pretty sure they’d prevent this kind of malicious behaviour ;) It wouldn’t be too difficult to save the unique MAC addresses of each device of installation. Plus, where’s the fun? :P

C’mon, the little tricks in your first post could be considered “malicious behaviour” too.

Guess you’re kinda right, thought we did do what they wanted; test the import feature in various conditions. Just saving them some bandwith by not uploading it all :sarcasm:

Well, that’s one way of looking at it

BTW , I was just curious if you guys (mods) can see the versions of a post (if it’s been edited I mean)?

It’s 5 GB just for installing the beta.

For example, by doing stuff mentioned here + 1 referral, I am now at 9.1 GB free Dropbox space :)

It all adds up – there’s extra space for various other things as well (like http://www.dropbox.com/gs or http://www.dropbox.com/free )

The party is slowly coming to an end ; the beta has been released as a release-channel update, and the bonus has been decreased to a cap of 3GB. Anyone who already earned 5GB gets to keep it, of course. :)
