Not sure the private forum thing really works too well.
Beating bonuses infamously has a private forum but even with that new casino signups are generally raped within an inch of their life and pulled having quickly been posted there.
It stops your common or garden internet floater from reading about new offers and adding nothing in return but thats much less of a problem here then say MSE anyway - certainly in traffic terms.
But there are bonuses specifically negotiated for this forum, which MSE doesn't have, and won't ever have. That's worth keeping from lurkers more than standard bonuses open to everyone.

This would require the bookie to set up their system to enable it to be tracked and whoever has arranged the offer would need to regulate sending out invitations so I would expect them to profit from doing so (whether this is by being employed by TGU or by payment from the bookie). It could also be tracked by someone sending out different promotion codes for ech person once they'd been vetted.
The benefit is that who uses the bonus is controlled by the person who has arranged it rather than a code that can be passed to unknown +/- fictitious people.
Another idea would be that you could input a code but the bookie could send a list of who has signed up to a moderator who could then look at the users and give them the thumbs up or thumbs down on whether they qualify for the promotion.
I have no idea how computers work. It may all be done by demons who sit inside the magic box and paint pictures on the screen for me for all I know. Therefore tell me to shut up if it is unworkable, Munk!
lazza = Its not completely unworkable and its what we are trying to do. It is however hard to arrange logistically, its a bit like Chinese whispers between us, you, the marketing departments of BookmakerA, the CS at BookmakerA who add the bonuses, and the accounts departments of BookmakerA who need to know the specific T&Cs attached and pay it (or not).
Its what we are trying to do more of in future.
Its what should have happened at BetJoint but there was a breakdown in communications which meant it was not a success* and we will be having a big discussion about that one day soon but not just yet.
*In much the same way as the maiden voyage of the Titanic was "not a success"!
Have a plan and stick to it
