For those of you who have not stumbled across the developer referral page, please go ahead and start using it! Many of you will attract new BYOND developers (because you are such attractive people!). Why not get a little credit?
To make it work, you just have to create a link from a web page that points to the referral script called welcomeBYOND.cgi. The precise html you should use is available on the referral page. It will create a referral cookie and then forward the user to the Start Here page.
We will also be adding a mechanism for indirectly referring people to BYOND by simply getting them to download the software, but you should at least convert over any links you already have that refer people to www.byond.com to instead go through this referral script. Help get the word out! We all benefit with more creative people to team up with.
