Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are willing to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

What is the Buddy option on DDF?
Basically the equivalent of following someone on Tapa?
All I know if you get to see a little bubble near their names. I have that by two members who stalk me! ;)
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

If anyone can advise please, looking to book a marriot certificate night but the only option for points booking is for 2 adults king room, will they upgrade me for a queen room with 2 more kids when I arrive?

If it's the same tier of room (not any sort of actual room upgrade) then may as long as they have one available. Definitely not guaranteed though. You can call in advance and see if you can change it.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

If I have a link that I used to refer a friend from my sapphire preferred, and I have since upgraded to the sapphire reserve, but the link still works. If someone else uses the same link will I earn the referral bonus even though I currently have the sapphire reserve? Thanks

As other said the easiest is to be an AU on older accounts to give your credit a boost then try again.
