So I know that the guest passes weren't working for awhile, but I saw a couple users report they were able to redeem them again. I posted one in the "official" giveaway thread, and it appears to have been redeemed, but there's no username, it's just blank, which is very weird.

I guess it's no big deal for me, so I'm not going to bother reporting it in a ticket, but I wonder if the user actually got it or not, or if it just went to waste...

It's possible that a user without a user name has redeemed it, or that the user has deleted his account since.

If the former, how is that even possible to not have a username? Can Free users redeem passes without creating an actual account?

If the latter, that would be weirder, because it would have had to have gotten nuked only mere seconds after the pass was redeemed.

I suppose a third possibility is a malicious person creating an alt account for the sole purpose of depriving someone of redeeming an available guest pass.

Any user who created his/her account via an app by default does not have a user name. They can later set one on the website later on, if they wish to do so. If they don't have a user name certain functions of the site, like posting on the forums, cannot be used. You can redeem guest passes though.

I gave a friend a 3 month pass and yet it tells me blank claimed it. He does have a username Millsyxd. He gets told to make a username but then says he already has one (because he does) his membership also says he is a normal but can watch 1080p with no ads. lol



Maybe something broke when the gift passses where down lol.

No trace of your friend redeeming a guest past in the past 2 years, nor even using the account.
