    AFA is really an admirable initiative and it gives a lot of value to our wounded industry. Kudos to all the forums already involved. It's now our turn to be grateful and support.

    I really think the AFA is a great idea and could potentially be an incredibly powerful independent organisation that sits above the affiliate community but at the moment it seems to be simply existing which is almost wasting the huge opportunity it has.

    I really think if this organisation is to become what it should be it should be throwing its hat in for what GAP/Ecogra is trying to do as well as bunch of other things from organising the fight against rogues like Grand Privee to ensuring best practice in affiliate marketing. If anything the AFA should be pitching Ecogra and GAP to do this as it makes perfect sense since it is formed by collection of leaders in our industry that represent the affiliate community and their opinions.

    It certainly doesn't need to be another forum but much more than that - An independent watchdog that sits above the sector - I am sure through donations it could survive and do the job the industry needs so badly right now - I know as an organisation we would be happy to contribute some to help with the running and maintenance of it

    Am I completely misunderstanding what the AFA is and going down the wrong path? I understand the AFA was set up for affiliate's right in forums but I think things have moved well beyond that and believe there is a great opportunity here now so am very interested to hear other people's thoughts.

    Alex,

    I think the AFA will be at least some of the things you mention here. What the AFA is not trying to be is a forum for affiliates. But it does have a forum for those of up operating affiliate forum sites so that we can better work together for the good of affiliates.

    So, for example, the GPWA and APCW thoughts around creating visibility for the Grand Prive issue were first mentioned there, and I know the AFA infrastructure will be used as a way to help ensure as forums we are working together on that project and on other similar projects.

    And you are right, that the AFA should be (and is) about more than the stated mission. I think of it as being there to help the different forums leverge our individual efforts to be able to cooperatively accomplish more than we would be able to accomplish alone.
