On your user profile, there's a bit under Forum Info that says 'Referrals: 0.'

What's that all about then?

Quoted from the FAQ section:

What are referrals?

The administrator may have enabled referrals, which allows you to be credited for any new users you invite to the forum.

You gain referrals by promoting Absolute Write Water Cooler using your unique referral link. The link you should use as your referral link is this:


Each time someone follows this link to Absolute Write Water Cooler and registers as a new member, your referral count will be incremented by one. The number of referrals you have can be viewed in your profile.

Your administrator will have more information on any prizes or rewards that may be given out for referrals. Please be courteous when promoting Absolute Write Water Cooler by not spamming other web sites with your referral link just to gain referrals.

I guess I should have bothered to look it up, huh?

I had to look it up, too. That's how I knew where to find it. ;)

is that I have some referrals, and I've never used a personal link to invite people to visit. I think it says I referred Birol and Cate.

Could be fun to implement someday. If I think of some cool prizes. :)

Oooh. Cool prizes. That would be fun! :heart:

You don't have to use a link to invite people, if people have joined because you tell them about this forum they can put your name down as a referral, depending on whether they know your username here, of course.

Jenna, the prizes don't necessarily have to be anything big and you might get donations from some of the other members here if you think about it a bit. There's also an add-on for a forum store whereby members earn forum $$ for posts which they can bank or use to buy items from the store such as changing the look of their screen names plus any items you might want to add.

Okay, I've been looking all over and can't find this. I must be looking in the wrong places. It sounds neat... can you point me to a link or something where I can find out how to add it?

Sorry for the late reply, I've been kind of busy with some stuff at home but I did manage to make it back.

there are gobs of extras here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/portal.php . I think the one you want for the store is this one: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?threadid=63793

although there may be other stores there as well. I think all you need is your vbulletin license. For some you may not even need it.
