    Got some fun news for ya'll.

    We've purchased a simple add-on that allows us to conduct referral contests and track our top referrers, allowing us to reward our very best recruiters with swag. September is going to be our first month for the contest. Think of it as a beta test... where you can win money (sort of)!

    If I've done all this correctly, you should see both an ad for the contest on the index and a "Referral Link" in your profile that's unique to you that you can give to prospective recruits. That way anyone you recruit will be automatically be listed as your referral. The forum member who makes the most referrals wins the prize.

    This month the prize is a $25 Amazon Gift card. Aw, yeah!

    There's precisely one catch: your referrals need to make at least 10 posts before October 1st in order to count towards your total, so recruit folks and encourage them to actually take part in the community or all your hard work could be for nothing.

    That's it! If there's any further questions (or any technical problems) let us know and we'll get it squared away. Happy referring!

    That moment when backhanded tactics plays in your mind.

    A very neat initiative, no doubt. Can't see anyone I can actually refer though. I'll prolly get flagged for randomly dropping my referral link in other-site discussions, blogs and the like.

    @Kuze: You bring up a good point. That's where I'm going to give a little advice to people.

    Don't make a nuisance of yourself by spamming other forums. If another site that you are part of allows advertising in sigs, then that's okay, put it in your sig. If you're not sure, ask permission. I don't want us getting a bad name, for spamming other sites. I guess, treat other sites the same way that you would like visitors to treat this one. :) Social media and that kind of thing is fair game.
