As the Title asks: What's a Referral ?
I noticed them in my profile .. What is this and Why ?? Who ??

Sounds negative .. I have checked most of the top members and
can see I am not alone .. and even in good company with the same
number ... but what is it ?

If it a negative as it sounds .. why isn't it listed .. is it a complaint?
To list it as a number lacks fairness if it is .. (gee..how bored was I
that this caught my eye .. hahahha)
Still...
It is like saying 7 arrests ... without mentioning .. 0 convictions.

Well ? Speak up. Don't be bashful.c.

Chris, I think it isn't a bad thing after all... found this: http://rog.asus.com/forum/faq.php?s=&do=search&q=referral&titleandtext=1&match=all

This part may be related to your question:

"Can I email a link to a friend?

Another useful email function is the ability to send a friend a link to a thread you think they may find interesting. Whenever you view a thread, you will find a link somewhere on the page which will allow you to send a brief message to anyone you like. Your referrer ID is added to the link you send, so if your friend registers on this forum as a result of viewing the link you sent to them, your referrals total will automatically be credited."

I believe it has something to do with people registering on the forums as a result of you - giving you credit. ASUS admins don't use it as far as I know.
