How does the referrer thingy at the bottom of the post work? The two pages linked seem not to link to this post?
Regarding styling: I’d prefer a non-serif font.

The referrer thing works as follows: if a visitor to the wiki has referrer information, the wiki fetches this page and searches for a link to the page. If that works, it remembers the link. This means that eventually referrals expire if nobody ever follows them. Normally this works very well. Some sites such as Blogspot offer users a blog-roll. As far as I understand it, users will then see the n most recently updated entries or a random selection. Either way, by the time other visitors try and check the referral, it’s no longer being displayed.
If you check Self:action=refer you will notice that at the moment the authors of Dreams of Mythic Fantasy, The City of Iron and Troll and Flame seem to have me listed on their blog-roll. All of them are Blogspot blogs.
