Number of users who have signed up to the site and claimed you as their referrer (it's automated).
This basically happens two ways:
1) You use our invite system, located here: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/supported.php
and when a user signs up under your link you become their referrer.
2) When a user just randomly signs up they can optionally put in anyones name as their referrer.
The referral system is something built into the forum software, the statistic plays no role beyond something to brag about.
