I just noticed the information bar regarding Referals and their posts. I see where I can send a link to somebody and if they go there and register, I get "1 referal point". If I understand correctly, I have 2 referals and they have made 4 posts. I would love to know who those referals are. I know of one that I refered and he has joined the board (Fishkiller). I just told him that he should post his question on the ST forum and see what the recommendations are. I have no idea who the other one is. Is there any way for me to know who is using me as a referal?

Yea, you don't get a list of the names... but we can look them up. Right now you have 2 guys - each with 2 posts... fisherdog is the other...

As soon as we have this sorted out, we're going to run a contest on who can get the most posts out of their referrals in a months time for another prize.

Seems like a good idea eh?

Larry,

This would require some of us to actually have friends.

Yea... or as someone said on the "other board" They have to "bribe people" to post on their board. Kinda' hurt my feelings. :smiley19: I thought it was a reward... not a bribe!

But you could always bribe people to refer through your name!

If and when needed, we can always look up who your referrals are.

I may not have friends but I can bribe (like allowing them to help me move or letting them watch my dogs while I am out of town). I should have no problems.

Cool feature too. ;)

Hey I don't even know who I told to come here in order to get the referal point! I don't remember referring anyone so I must just be that good :)

I wonder if there is anyway they can post who's leading in the competition?

Yeah I've told a few people but only one actually signed up. I'm working on another who would be a lot of fun here. The only problem with him though is he takes his time on everything he does. So he might get around to signing up by Thanksgiving just not sure which year. Heck he didn't get his first birthmark until he was 11.

I have one referral but he seems to be handicapped already. Can't get the registration to work.

Heck, there are atleast 2 people from the forum I run for MS and I have no referrals... I guess they decided to skip my link all together... I feel so loved!

Hrmm..I keep noticing my referral posts going down..

I haven't deleted anything... It would have to be one of the folks that was a referral for you deleted their own posts... but that would be the only way.

I just went in and looked at all the moderator logs as well... No one has deleted anything as far as moderators go... so it had to be one of your referrals deleted their own... Got to get some better referrals there Will!

Man... way too much work! I have to go to the referral admin panel, but then it gives me everyone that has referrals, but I have to click on each one, then it takes me to a screen that lists all their referrals.. then I click on each of them and get the numbers... then add them all up. Probably take a few hours to do it... and I really only want to do it once! When we're done!

And by then, maybe I can come up with a script.

So for now, just go through a bunch of threads and see who has how many below their avatar! It's kinda like an easter egg hunt!
