    So, I'm interested in winning an ATV in a referral based contest. I know the guy who is in sixth place in the contest and he doesn't even have that many referral.

    Here is my question: Is there a way that I can link to the signup page so that the "referred by" section on the form already contains my referral code?

    Micro jobs should do the trick. Just hire 100 people to do it.

    thanks! I was considering that, especially now that I've read the rules and it doesn't say buying referrals is against the rules :rock:
