    so here you go :

    AE commission page : Affiliates who send 5 FTD's or less over a 2 calendar month period collectively will be marked as 'non active' and will be reduced to 10% default commission.

    and now go back to sleep ok ?!

    Jeeeeeeeezzzzz people falling for the trash and scum, the big fat liars on the internet, looks like they take zips from the wrong beverage.

    So first they steal your players then implement the wrong commission % and then introduce a bi-monthly 5 FTD quota ; why not completely remove the affiliate program as there will be nothing left anyway LOL

    Here is your answer, Sir!

    This nail in the coffin of the new and so wonderful and short-temporarily banned management was hammered

    between 21. February 2017 and 18. March 2017

    Proof?

    On 21. February this idiotic and evil quota did not exist:

    On 18. March 2017 it was proven installed:

    Have fun with the new, good guys.

    Let me guess, the quota & retroactive reduction in commissions is not going to be viewed as a hostile move towards affiliates? We should surely cut the new owners some slack, as they are new to this and we should feel comfortable with all of this because slow discussions are taking place behind the scenes regarding the "temporary" sanctions that they promised they'll work towards clearing?

    Relax people they have changed for the better and added this code on the AE home page :

    1. they are now fully GPWA approved

    <a style="float: left;" href="hxxp://certify.gpwa.org/verify/affiliateedge.com/" onclick="return GPWAVerificationPopup(this)" id="GPWASeal">


    2. and accredited again at the CasinoMeister :



    <img src="hxxp://certify.gpwa.org/seal/affiliateedge.com/" onerror="this.width=0; this.height=0;" border="0" />
    </a>
    <img style="float: right;" src="_Common/_Images/cmawards.gif" alt="Casino Meister Awards" />

    4 times the best Affiliate program !! so why doubt our actions, the 5th time will even be better for you (losers) out there


    3. Look at our hxxp://affiliateedge.com/Testimonials.aspx page we work with the best in the industry so why don't you ?

    This is why I do not knowingly allow myself to be used in a testimonial for anybody - and I have been asked many times (trying hard not to sound like a ****** here). I know a lot of affiliates these days will do anything to get links from affiliate program and casino/poker sites such as giving them "seals of approval" and other similar BS. If you're doing that, you're inviting ridicule and accusations of complicity when things go pear-shaped, not to mention referring players to sites that are actively advertising alternatives and/or competitors. And good luck trying to get them to remove the testimonials if they do go bad. It is an incredibly short sighted and silly thing to do. Not that the guys doing this probably care - its all about the links.

    The GPWA itself has never marked a program as being rogue. Our response to rogue programs has always been to suspend their sponsorship and to announce that we have done so, and for the posts where webmasters expose the issues to remain visible for all to see. We have done that with Affiliate Edge.

    What we have also done historically, in terms of marking programs rogue, and continue to do, is mark affiliate program listings with their status on Affiliate Guard Dog when they are marked as rogue there. That is part of a long-standing cooperation we have had with Andy at Affiliate Guard Dog. Affiliate Edge is not listed as a sponsor on the GPWA website anymore, so there is no longer any listing on the GPWA site where you can see Affiliate Edge marked as rogue. However, we do run another heavily trafficked site, iGamingAffiliatePrograms.com. If you take a look at Affiliate Edge's listing on that site, you will see that we have very clearly shown it is marked rogue by Affiliate Guard Dog.

    iGamingAffiliatePrograms.com listing for Affiliate Edge

    Now I understand the fact that the suspension is currently termed a temporary suspension might be confusing. The reason the sponsorship suspension of Affiliate Edged is termed temporary at the present time is that Affiliate Edge agreed that we should suspend their sponsorship and promised the existing issues would all be fixed and in exchange we agreed that we would provide feedback regarding the issues reported by affiliates and conduct a more thorough investigation of the situation, and also allow enough time to pass before deciding if the suspension would be permanent to see how they behaved with respect to some of the various issues that have been noted by others, and which we are discussing with them.

    I agree that it would require a modern-day miracle for affiliate community views to evolve to a place where there was mutual agreement they should be a sponsor here. What I am interested in seeing is whether or not their behavior going forward will paint them as ethical at heart but having been involved in some very bad mistakes in the management transition, or paint them as unethical scoundrels.

    I know a very large group of affiliates would argue that the likelihood that the current situation is cause only by some bad mistakes that will be corrected, and not due to unethical behavior, is laughably small. If that is the case we will all see that soon enough. In the meantime I am intent on seeing if Jonathan's older brothers do fix things as I have been promised they will.

    I'm sure that they'll patch things up and remove that completely unnecessary 10% commission rule. Come on AffiliateEdge, I trust in you to do something about that. Hello Stuart Ferster, if you're reading this, please do take this into consideration my good friend. At least for the sake of the smaller affiliates out there. Also, at least so you can get more and more affiliates and players alike to trust you again and to support you and so you can get your GPWA seal of approval and accreditation back again and so forth and to keep on working with you for many more successful years to still come...

    Does anybody know if this new 10% commission deal only applies to new affiliates who are about to sign up or have just signed up this month?

    If we wait some more days, probably a report comes out, that the stats manipulations from Affiliate Edge 2.0 were the result of server hacking, done by the Russians and after an internal investigation - hidden from the public gaze - also the CCM* will be highly confident in that report.

    They have retroactively changed their T & C's without informing their affiliates. Many affiliates are reporting that players have been detagged. The owners took their own younger brother to court. Their respected Affiliate Manager has resigned as has their award winning customer service rep, yet have no job lined up. Affpower employees are acting as consultants for AE. Payments are delayed, late or not forthcoming.

    Yet you are seeing the good in them. You are either a shill or need to wake up and smell the coffee.

    They reduce commission if you bring 5 OR LESS, which means you need 6 or more.

    They also DON'T say if that's per brand (as they are not bundled... yet!), or across all brands under AE... ?

    Yes then I agree.
    I like the brands that pay by Casino now! It's tiring.
    If you have 49 euros by casino, with 10 casinos, and they pay from 50 euros, you have 490 euros out lol.
    This is the novelty of the moment.
