    When giving out the address of this board to anyone, you can give them a link such as this:
    http://www.usmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?referrerid=1

    Everyone here has a unique ID, mine just happens to be 1. This number refers to when you joined the board. You can rest your mouse over any user on the board and it will display their user ID.

    If someone clicks on that link to get to the board, the reffering ID will get credit for the referral. Look in Janeen's profile!

    Here it is explained in the FAQ:
