I have a couple questions on the URI format(s). The sfx URI is something like: http://www.spreadfirefox.com/?q=affiliates&id=200351&t=218 and the stb link is something like: http://www.spreadthunderbird.com/aff/35/10.
- I assume the first number (200351 & 35) is your affiliate ID. What is the second (t=218 & 10) number for? Is it the button number? Is it necessary? Are your counters actually 218 and 10 respectively, or are those random choices?
A lot of questions, I know. I have looked for answers on-line, but found nothing. I figured you may know the answers, or where to look, and I thank you for any response.

SpreadThunderbird is not as tightly related to Mozilla as SpreadFirefox it. I believe Mozilla own SpreadFirefox but not SpreadThunderbird. Though most of the people involved are the same. Same person designed both sites for example. I don't think the from=stb is going to work, yet.
It does not really matter what link you use, I like it when you leave mine in. You can use a direct link to mozilla.com or your own sfx link. Anything works; even http://ie7.com/
Here is a post I tried to add to your forum and got: 'You are banned from this forum. The administrator or moderator that banned you left the following message: Banned by Akismet. Please direct any inquiries to the forum administrator at :censored:.' I thought I answered the 'are you human' question correctly.
You would have answered to "You are Human" question right. But bots have a 1 in 4 chance of getting it right too, in fact they have got it right thousands of times. Once you get past that I check for "bad words" that bots often use, and I would not want on my forms anyway. Then finally I pass it thought Akismet (created by WordPress) and it has blocked almost 1500 posts. Normally have a quick scan over the message titles. Never seen anything that looks slightly relevant before.
Have I helped you? Do you like my add-ons?
Would you consider donating to show your appreciation for my efforts?
