The "referral" is located on everyone's user profiles under "General Information" like this:

As you see I have number "0" but some members have "1" - why?
What is it? :p

They told their friends about the site and made them join.
Then they named you as a referral.

It's when you refer a member to TRF. Get some people to join and enter you as a referral and you will get more. :D

I only have 4, so I really need to step it up. :p

It's for referring someone to the forum. Know anyone that isn't here yet that likes Tomb Raider? In the future this sort of question is better suited to asking a mod rather than starting a thread.

Well I'm a noob when it comes to dating, so it looks like we will just have to settle for playing a good Tomb Raider game. :p

I got a few questions.:)
Can referral give by members and how I can have or give referrals to another members? Just asking.:D

EscondeR

^ Referral is a member who has registered on TRF using your referrer link CLICKY (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/faq.php?s=&do=search&q=referral&match=all&titlesonly=0) (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/index.php?referrerid=<userid>) or put your forum name in the corresponding field upon registration.

You can "give someone referrals" by providing that person's referrer link to other potential users who want to register (obviously permission of the named person whos referrer you pass is obligatory).

I know you're actually joking but I do remember Justin posting the list of prizes you get when you reach certain targets for referrals. I don't know if he still gives them out though or even what the list of prizes were.
