Unfortunately, we have had a lot of abuse with our StreetTeam program lately in the blogs. People have been embedding their StreetTeam URL in images in their blogs so that if someone were to just visit their blog without clicking anything it was as if they had clicked their StreetTeam link.
Therefore, we are going to have to make a small change. The main idea of the StreetTeam URL is to give back to those that help us promote the site. As written on the StreetTeam page:
One of the best ways to earn StreetTeam points is to link to Threadless from other websites or through email using your unique StreetTeam URL.
So, now, if someone were to click your link while already on Threadless, re: from your blog post or comment, or your profile page, the link will not work. You must link to Threadless using your StreetTeam URL from another website or through email or a chat client or some other external method in order to receive your points.
Your StreetTeam URL will no longer work if clicked from Threadless. After all, you're not really refering somebody to Threadless if they are already on Threadless!
Your StreetTeam URL will still work when used linking to Threadless from other websites, in emails, chat clients or other external methods.
Sorry it had to be done and thanks for your understanding.
