I was participating in the Spread the WWWord! partnership program before October 14, 2004. Do I need to do anything?
Yes. We changed the way click-throughs are tracked and the way partners link to us. First, you need to click the "Update Settings" link (found on our website under Partnership Program, in the Partners Only section) and enter the base URL of your website(s). Second, you need to update the links and linking graphics on your website to remove the username or reference ID from the URL. While in the past partners linked to http://www.ourchurch.com/?ref=your_username, now links should point directly to http://www.ourchurch.com.
