Referral Progress Bar

I would love it if we could see how close we are to getting credited for a referral with possibly a progress bar with the progress on how close the user is to 100% per referral.

    Hi! Just wanted you give you all an update on this. We've made some changes to our setting pages, and we now include more information about your referral link. It looks like: http://i.imgur.com/Ydhhr4J.png Check it out in the control panel: https://cloud.digitalocean.com/settings/referrals

    This fix is still very minimal. I've suggested some additional reporting features:

    I agree we should get this - don't know why it has gotten so little votes in the time its been around as someone who has gotten Digital Ocean over 600 referrals and been paid over $2000 - this would be something useful to see how close my other 400 referrals are to reaching the $10 (or I guess now $25) limit. You could leave the general referrals page the same - its very clean and I like it but then give us the option to click on the pending money amount for example and it'll show a list of emails & progress.

    I have lot of referrals in my account that didn't reached $10 in billing, in such a situation if a progress bar is shown to each referral, It would be complex. Isn't it?

    Hi Ryan,

    Very interesting suggestion if it gets enough up-votes we'll look into it!
