    I think you're right, and what it tells me is that Elio is having trouble attracting the serious-level investors they're after. This is a gimmick, and it may work, but it's still a gimmick -- Elio stock meets your investment requirements, or it doesn't.

    I wish they weren't doing this.

    PS -- that free car had better not have an SIL lower than 14847!

    Right, StartEngine gets a free sales force (us) to find investors (friends) to invest (through SE so they profit) and unless you're one of the top 3, you get nothing.
    Kind of disappointing. :(

    I thought that's part of what we already were. 59K strong.
    Whatever. Indeed, whatever it takes to get this thing to market.

    We must be falling down on the job because they have to entice us to do more.

    Disagree we are not falling down. SE needs a free work force as good as us.

    It may be simply like the personalized mailers you get. They get the list from Elio so everyone gets a personalized eMail starting with Hi Elio Fans. The list they get from a Symphony might start with Hi Symphony fans and then you get the same letter.

    I personally don't think it has anything to do with Elio per se. Just a personalized general mailout which probably has something to do with getting hits on their website.

    I'm not sure that we are really the intended audience for this new campaign. I don't really see it as trying to get us to do more in terms of actually buying stock, it's a referral program. But it does have to be done in accord with a new public stock offering, because the old one is closed out.

    I'm not convinced this has much to do with Elio but is instead something more beneficial to Start Engine.

    I'm very disappointed with Start Engine as a company. After buying my shares of Elio I had no need to hear from them again and was annoyed by the various emails they sent. That led me to unsubscribe from them some time ago and yet with this next big thing I find them spamming me all over again.

    It will be interesting to see what exactly happens on 9/27. Will this actually be about trying to help Elio or is it just more opportunity for Start Engine to try to convince people to invest in other things.

    It's funny, but I haven't gotten a single message from start engine or from Elio regarding this project.
