Well it has been 10 months since my self imposed ban from GPWA (what i considered my true online family ...). My last post was on December 15th 2009. At the time I decided to take a 3 month vacation along with some unhappy members. During the time I had lots of time to reflect and I have come back with a new direction and refreshed outlook on things.
I left GPWA for a couple of reasons. The most important one was the fact that I felt the GPWA was ineffectual in dealing with members who stole content or in programs who have ripped off affiliates while still maintaining their sponsorship here at GPWA.
Overtime I have had members contact me asking me to return and saying things have changed and we need your support. I first and foremost want to thank them so much for pushing me to come back. I was certainly hard for me to come back today. It may seem odd for some of you, but I have PRIDE and I think i let it get in the way this time around 10 months was way to long for me to stay way from a place i considered HOME.
At the same time I see wonderful changes happening here. Affiliates along with the GPWA seem to working together more now then ever in dealing with the daily realities of rogue casinos, content thieves, spammers ect ect.
I also see some very important issues being discusses here which I just am not able to avoid anymore. I must support my peers, and most of my peers are here.
So with all that said and done!!! I am back to participate and do my best to contribute in a positive manner - yet at the same time I understand the limitations GPWA has in regards to supporting affiliates based on thier accepting sponsorship monies from programs.. Its something I will need to deal with and just do what i can do to help in my own way.
I have 2-3 dozen PMs here to answer - I literally have not logged in in almost a year. So i will be attending those PMs. If anyone PMed me please accept my apologies for the 10 month delay
Whether this post makes any sense or not doesn't really matter. The fact is I am back in action and feel somewhat happy that I bit down on my pride and decided to come back. That in itself is a big accomplishment.
There are posts here I so badly want to be involved in - but for now I will read as much I can - catch up and before you know it jump in!!!
I really want to thank everyone who urged me to come back to GPWA - not to mention names since I may forget some!!! But you all know who you are!!
So with that said - As the thread title says - GFPC is back in the house!!
