Hi all,
When I look at my Dreamstime contributor information page, I see a list of "referred members"
on the right. Clicking at each of their names, I notice that each of them has 0 uploads. Next to each of their profile are images, which are not theirs, but other contributor images.

Under Referrral program there's this information:
"(X number of) users were referred by you.
 No photographers were referred by you.
 No buyers were referred by you. No payment plans were purchased. "

 I've earned 0.00 under the referral program...

So if they are not photographers or buyers, who are they? And where do the images next to their avatar refer to?

Sorry if this is asked before. Thanks in advance for any insight on this.

....

Those are users who registered at Dreamstime based on your recommendation, using your referral link, or putting your referral ID to the registration form, but so far havent done any activity yet, so they are neither buyers nor contributors.

....
Next to each of their profile are images, which are not theirs, but other contributor images.
Images shown on their profile pages seem to be chosen based on location/country those users selected upon registration. I guess this is because of SEO and business reasons, so that there are no "empty" pages (pages without any stock images) at Dreamstime website, so that when search engine's robot or some possible buyer lands on those profile pages there will be at least some stock images displayed, which can be clicked and thus Dreamstime website explored further.
