I saw we can now have Area 51 proposal ads to put on our sites. That's awesome.

Now, can we please also have the option to tack on our referrer code?

Done. A proposal's embed script (with referral code) is now accessible from its "Share This" popup, which is shown once you've followed or committed to a proposal:

  • Would you please be so kind as to include the script version in that dialog as well? The iframe version doesn't work in WordPress blogs.

  • @Alex It's already possible. Just add ?referrer=foo to the script src. I suppose we should include the script version in the popup too so that's more clear..

You could write some javascript to referrify the link of the a51-ad object in that iframe.
