What is my special link
The “special link” is simply http://insanescouter.org/users/register.php?rid=<some number>. This number lets us know they signed up because of you. Even if they come to the site, look around for a while and later click on “become a member” you will still get the credit for signing them up and thus an entry into the contest.
For legal reason I will state we do this by using what is called a “cookie”. If cookies are refused or cleared before signing up we will have no idea who to give credit to.
The combined value of the prizes is over $600.00!!! Please thank our sponsors.
