On December 7th 2009 eCOGRA announced that it was hired by the management of Grand Prive to prepare a report on the closure of the affiliate program and to accept claims by any affiliate who believed they might be owed money from players for play subsequent to the time the affiliate program was closed.
Originally claims were required to be completed within two weeks of the initial announcement, but that time was subsequently extended an additional ten days to the end of the calendar year (31 December 2009).
Hopefully between discussions on the forums and through an e-mail message sent to the last e-mail address of record for affiliates that were known to have active players a year ago, a decent percentage of affiliates entitled to additional affiliate earnings will file a claim before the end of the calendar year at www.ecogra.org/grandprive.aspx.
However, any process that requires a response within a period of 24 days from the initial announcement with a communication process that will not reach everyone will not have a 100% response rate. What is your guess as to what percentage of those entitled to file a claim will actually do so?
Hopefully this poll will increase awareness of the deadline, and a few additional folks will file a claim and receive money to which they are entitled as a result.
And if you feel you might be owed money by Grand Prive be sure to share with us whether or not you have filed a claim.
