should we be able to do this if so how much for a active ref (randomly choosen) would you pay ?
ofc there can be a limit too how many you can buy per level or if there is any available

Very unlikely to happen. Some members may feel cheated if they pay XX money for a ref only to have them earn less or worse yet get banned.

I've seen this done on other sites and although nice in theory it seems a bit sleazy.

Nice idea, bad execution. Some people would just buy tons of referrals, winning contest after contest, while those which spend countless hours making websites, wouldn't win anything for their hard work. Seems like it would be sort of "cheating", if you can put it that way.

it would be a good idea except if you give them points, there's a chance that they'll get banned and you'll lose them forever

I've never seen this happen, but I've heard of a contest in which your ref link will be promoted for a week or something.

Anyway, I doubt anyone would want to sell their refs. Plus, you may even be cheated.

People will be disappointed I'm afraid when they get refs that don't stay active or turn out to be cheaters after a while...

Well, then that's your own fault, you have to work for referrals. The people who get 1000's of referrals a month work hard to get them. And how would the link be promoted? If p2s sent all of its "un-referred" users to your link, you would get over 1000 a day. That wouldn't be fair now, would it?

Lol sounds like someones mad. I think he wouldnt get over 1000 a day as you would have to PAY for them as the original idea states. Although 10 is pretty easy to get. overall i disagree with this idea.
