    Default Cap

    After reading a thread today about forum members who have passed on, I went to vist CAP. It looked vacant, how long has it been like this? it's rather sad.

    Sorry, I think I posted this in the wrong area and dont know how to delete it...

    It's been like that for a few years, I think it started a downhill trend several years ago. It's a shame, it used to be a good forum for our industry alongside the GPWA, which is also not what it once was.

    Yeah I remember the day when CAP was booming with Warren and Lou.

    Then you also had PAL with Jeremy.

    Along with the GPWA and AGD the industry seemed to moving along so well. Lots of business deals and some great conversations in posts.


    Now it appears the only survivor is the GPWA of almost all affiliate forums.

    It is no where near what it used to be in terms of affiliates sharing. Those days are gone.

    I will move this to the general area.

    In my opinion CAP was never the same after the split with Lou and Warren, was a real shame and sadly Lou did not last long after that.

    If you were not around before 2009, you have no idea of the real nasty truth. Time has covered up a multitude of wrongs done in the name of profit. The industry has moved on, but those of us who lived through it will always remember what really happened.

    CardSpike was their downfall...rephrase: greed.

    It was like watching a train wreck unfold.

    I met someone that worked at CAP 2 years ago in Mexico. Young guy in his 20s I would guess.
    He talked about revitalizing the site, and I specifically mentioned the forums to him, but nothing ever came of it.
    I get the feeling they are still rather large affiliates however, given where I met them, at an invite only affiliate function.
    https://professionalrakeback.com

    We have bullet-proof revenue-share deals on online poker networks that:
    A) no longer allow them
    B) do not like winning poker players
    C) charge insane fees

    Interested in a sub deal?

    CAP was a disgrace to our industry and I'm glad it's dead. Faked posts (by admins) pretending to be other (real) members, promoting spam, stealing money....

    I too met with someone from there a few years back and was asked to help revitalise the forum, with a hint of reward if I did. No chance.

    Be careful you might be asked to step outside and sort it out, mano-a-mano!

    I've registered at CAP around 2010 so I missed Cardspike drama I guess..

    Beside CAP there was also PAL (Poker Affiliate Listings)- both are ghost towns nowadays.

    This would have been one of the funniest fights to ever happen. David and Goliath - Part 2!

    I also remember the GPWA magazines that "went missing" on the opening day of the conference, and hotel security getting called in to kick out two conference attendee and esteemed GPWA stalwarts. Only to find they were staying in that hotel and they weren't able to remove them!

    Fun times and some sad times.

    Spot on, mate. It's the only conference I really wish I hadn't missed, but following the drama from afar was almost as entertaining.

    I remember that...
    Professor wanted to go fist-y cuffs with CityGuard (aka Steve Corfman, yes Michael's son). At the time stories about the drama over there were here, on CAP, and other places too. If you remove the emotions and ego, it really all comes back to 'greed', wanting to be top-dog, or both.

    PAL showed so much promise at one time too!

    It's the site that got me into affiliate marketing ten years ago.
