whats a referral?

<p>when u look at a poster's personal profile, you can see it lists the # of referrals they have. what does that mean?</p>

<p>bump... anyone know this?</p>

<p>I am pretty sure that when a CCer recommends this website to a friend, and the friend, upon creating an account, lists the user name of the CCer who referred him to this site, the original CCer is marked as having one (or more) referrals.</p>
