    Do we have referrals on the forum? Links from a website to here? In FAQ there is mentioned the possibilty.
    Maybe for the next upgrade?

    greg, I hope you don't mind I didn't ask for a banner (and permission). If you have one send it over...

    Hi Sonty.

    No. You just give a simple link in a new window. But if the link would contain your ID-number (1296) of PF then Greg would know that you provided the link to here. Now he can know this also but need to check all incoming IP-numbers on his server log. In a referrals system this is automatic. It's the basic system used for banner technology ... and to make money when you bring a real client to Amazon, etc.

    On the PF FAQ:

    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 Physics Forums using your unique referral link. The link you should use as your referral link is this:


    Each time someone follows this link to Physics Forums 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 Physics Forums by not spamming other web sites with your referral link just to gain referrals.
