    o___o how far back can tnt see in your referral links?

    i heard recently that if you go straight from... say, clraik to neopets, if tnt is suspicious of you doing something wrong, they can look at your refferal links and see if it was any of these type of cheating sites.

    CRAP LOL???
    i've done this a million times and now i'm paranoid about it, how far can tnt see back? or how does this work, anyone know?

    I know they can see say like, if you click on a neoboard link that was posted on cK and you click on it, they can see that you went to that link and were referred to it by cK.
    At least they used to, now Joe uses a link anonymizer.
    Not sure about if you go to cK from Neo or anything though.

    it was changed recently where the referral bit would be removed when we click on off-site links so tnt cant really tell anymore if we clicked from clraik
    you'll be fine.
    we're all fine
    if tnt could freeze us over referral links we wouldnt be here right now

    That was a very good change I was glad to see when I got active again - I used to copy/paste and open link in another tab aware of this issue.

    We had another thread about this and it was mentioned that they may be able to check back further, but I didn't see a conclusive answer... some people said yes, some said no. I personally started using a different browser for ck, but I'm most likely just being paranoid. I think it would take a lot of work on their end to check, if they even can, and a lot of innocent users come here but don't actually participate since it IS a Neo forum. They can't just freeze people for looking, they'd have no way to tell who is doing what.

    Yeah, nothing wrong anymore but its not like they were doing anything in the first place, like @m33r33 said.

    Just a good little safety precaution.

    You're safe in terms of visiting Neopets after being on clraik no matter how long ago it has been.

    Wasn't there some paranoia about them being to check your cookies when you visit neopets, that they can see you cK cookies?

    or am I being extra paranoid for no reason?

    There was, but they can't do that so we're good.
