    I'm very pleased to announce that 20 additional sites have been awarded the the right to display the "GPWA Approved Portal" seal, bringing the total number of approved sites to 85 during the first five weeks of the program's launch.

    Congratulations to the following 20 newly approved sites (and their associated webmasters).

    Information about how to install the seal on your site can be found on the following thread: www.gpwa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=168814

    If you are a current GPWA private member, and would like to be a participant in this new program, please pm CityGuard with the URLs of the websites on which you would like to use the seal.

    If you are not currently a private GPWA member, and would like to become one so that you can participate in the new GPWA Seal of Approval program, please register to become a private member - just click on the "register" navigation item on the top navigation bar, and follow the directions for applying to becoming a private member.

    Congratulations again to all of the webmasters of our first 85 approved sites!

    We are getting very close to 100 sites, so I would like to encourage everyone to apply for seals for their sites so we can reach that important milestone soon!

    Thank you.

    Hi Dominique. Here is some background on both the requirements and the application process.

    How to apply:
    1) If not already a private member, submit an application for private membership. The application form is available at https://www.gpwa.org/private_registration.asp.

    2) If already a private member or if you have already have a private member application under review, send a private message to me (CityGuard) indicating the URL(s) of the site(s) you wish to have reviewed for the seal.



    Requirements:
    While the seal requirements are based on the private membership requirements, the approval is granted or declined for specific websites rather than for the individual webmaster. This means that a member who has some qualifying sites might also have some sites that do not qualify. (For example, if a webmaster ran both an informational portal and a banner-farm-type portal lacking any information, the banner farm would not qualify for the seal even though the informational portal would.)

    The specific requirements are that the applicant website:
    • Is managed independently of the online gambling websites it provides information about or promotes.
    • Respects and upholds copyright standards.
    • Does not send spam email.
    • Does not use malicious search engine optimization techniques such as posting spam-like comments in forums and interactive blogs.
    • Does not promote or display pornography.
    • Provides consumers with information extending beyond banner advertisements and links.
    • Acts professionally and respectfully in its business activities.

    Default Unable to Post Seal

    Hi Michael,

    I wrote a post about this last week but now can't find it. There was no reply that I can determine.

    When I access the link to find my seal size, the only choice is for Lucky Gambler and no pic of the seal posted to judge size for layout.

    You approved three sites but no choice is offered for the other two.

    Please see if you can sort this out.

    Thank you,

    ntaus

    p.s. The thread for seal problems has disappeared which is where I suspect my post appeared.

    Hi Ntaus,
    We put all the bug reports from the seal discussion in the private forums into two different threads, one for resolved issues and one for issues that are still being worked on. So your note is available at https://www.gpwa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=169130 (unresolved issues) and I hope I just made the changes necessary to move it to https://www.gpwa.org/forum/showthread.php?t=169131 (resolved issues).

    The problem was that the sites weren't correctly associated with you in the membership database (details: we had an inactivated duplicate listing associated with you instead of the main, active listing). I've gone ahead and changed this, so the size selection feature should work correctly now.

    Default Help

    Good afternoon to you all from sunny SA.

    I would greatly appreciate help from anyone who could assist me in getting some of the portals which I am designing to be allowed to display the GPWA approved portal seal.

    Any help regarding this would be much appreciated by my employer and me.

    Many thanks

    MATTER

    Hi Matter, glad to see your interest in the Seal of Approval. For some details on how to be approved check out my reply to Dominique -- post number 8 in this thread. (https://www.gpwa.org/forum/showpost....14&postcount=8)

    In short, submit a private membership application then send me ("CityGuard") a private message indicating the sites you'd like to have considered forb the seal. I'm in London for ICE and CAP Euro right now, so I may not send an acknowledgement note letting you know we've received your application until early next week. -- will only be able to check back here periodically.

    Let me know if you have any others questions about the seal.
