Did you enter some random username as referral? You are supposed to leave that part blank if you wasn't referred.

Like Zvonzi wrote, the referrer field is to be used only if you have a friend who plays the game and told you about it. You enter their ingame username (not the Steam name) and they'll get a nice bonus.

I've just made this account, and though I have yet to actually buy the game I had tried to enter my friends' username into the "Referrer" field and each time all I got was "Invalid Referrer Username", despite the fact that I had done everything (granted that wasn't really much aside from enter his real name, then his user name spelled in several different fashions, his email and even copying the name to use to put in the referrer field) to no result, I had hoped to be able to get him the referrer rewards by throwing out a line on the forums. Any thoughts on how I can get him his goodies?
