    "Invite others to CF" button

    How about adding a button to add others to CF membership? Just allow anyone to type in an email address and it would send a personal invitation to the recipient. They could click on the invitation (link to CF) and it would allow them to join.

    This could help spread the word about this great community and get more members.

    Sincerely,

    Zumbro Clones

    CW... FWIW I used to use a vBulletin mod called "invitation system gold" for this exact thing. Totally customizable and would automatically insert the username into the referrer field when registering - perhaps its worth checking out

    Nothing yet. Something I was waiting for the offseason on. Good news is, the offseason is here.

    If nothing else, there should be "share" buttons somewhere to share content on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc...

    For the posters who are waiting for the invitation button you could just email your friends and invite them to join yourself.
