    To make money? :P It's an odd affiliate based link.

    If you buy something through a link on here, they make money.

    Yes I looked up the site after posting and realised that.

    Fair enough!

    Thought it was some kind of link hijacking.

    Not all links, it should only be ones that have referrals.
    Viglink basically add our referral id onto the link so if it was say pointing to amazon we would get commission from a sale.
    We are testing 2 currently, viglink is enabled but the other is vbulletin based skimlinks. I think we will probably go back to skim tbh.

    Hope that clears it up.
