Referrals

Ever since LF upgraded to the whole next-generation vB thing and all, I've been noticing a little tag called "Referrals" in people's profiles. It says 0 for some, 1 for some and even 2 sometimes! What are these referrals, if I may ask, oh great LF users?

Behold, the FAQ!

(It's essentially a small incentive to lure new people to the forums, as I understand it...)

WTH? I don't remember asking someone to join this? But what the heck, as long as it makes me look big, I'm happy.

Okay, so I invited one dude (whoever he was). The FAQ says that the Admin may grant me a reward. So, what do I get?

If you're surprised by 2(!) don't look at Darth333's or (gasp!) Redhawke's profile...

Don't feel bad about having only 1. Jimbo didn't even claim me as his referral source. He lost a husband point for that one.

I would wonder why.

I think you need more than one referral for a reward, Sabretooth.

Nobody was claiming the reward anyways.

Duct Tape is ALWAYS the answer

No, you can't see this information.

Btw, I never used my referral link either. However, when someone registers a new profile, there is a box that says If you were referred to this site by an existing member of LucasForums, enter their name here..

@ Pottsie: no, it belongs to the person who registers to the forums to type the name of the referral. In any event, for now, referrals don't give you anything apart virtual cookies (see my post above).
