so the link that affiliates get look something like this "subblogs.maindomain.com?ref=USERNAME-25".
my question is this. will the affiliate tracking system track a referral if a user attaches the "?ref=USERNAME-25" portion of the link onto any URL to his/her blog, e.g., a link to a specific post?
a more broad version of the question, will the user get credit if he/she attaches the that portion of the link to ANY subblog URL from your entire network? for example, say user1 likes a post on another subblog (subblog2) run by user2. adds the above ref portion of the referral link to the end of the post from subblog2 then tweets it or whatever. people click on it, eventually become supporters. is this tracked to user1?
related question. if the same site visitor is referred to several different subblogs via different affiliate links, which affiliate will get the credit? first one? last one? all? (it would not be good if it's the last one... ha)
