    A friend of mine notified me this morning that he needed a "referrer" to sign up. Is that line mandatory, now? I don't remember what, if anything, I put on mine, as I picked up a link on another forum.

    I don't think any sort of referrals are required to sign up.

    Maybe he was assuming he did when he saw that? I know I never really noticed it until AFTER joining and even then I only briefly wondered what it was and then, promptly forgot all about it. :dunno:

    Hmm, never noticed it. Maybe it was some tool for showing networking that joey found but no one uses.

    I noticed it when I signed up, but left it blank as the link from another forum didn't have a good name tu use.

    I think he just assumed it was mandatory and asked me. He gave me credit (thank you) and is now a member.

    I can't remember what I applied with here, but I have found similar referral lines in applications to join other gun forums. I always write, "We don't got to show you no steenking badges!" and they always let me in......................elsullo :D
