    Hey All,

    This has been a long time coming and we have worked with Monica for some time discussing why the terms need to be reverted.

    As such, a newsletter went out today from Vegas Affiliates stating that they:

    1. Will no longer bundle casinos!

    2. Will no longer have a 'Minimum Activity Rule'!


    At the moment I cannot change their status here at AGD due to a machine crashage :( However, as soon as that is resolved, VA will be placed back into the certified section with a warning (and a retroactive change warning icon as well).

    This is a great step in the right direction for a program that (for a very long time) did not see the light. Thanks very much to Monica who worked her tail off to get this implemented.

    I'll forward the email to you so that you can post it here... since it is only on my phone with my computer crash, I can't post it easily.

    Hi Monica,

    great news!

    In the email you said that people who signed up prior to 1st June 2009 will not be affected by bundling. Does this mean that we will get reimbursed for the months after that where you did implement the rule?

    Regards
    Kevin

    These positive changes from VA were unexpected.

    Nice work AGD and VA!

    Hi there Greek thank you so much for your post,
    It really gives us the strenght to keep mooving the right direction.

    Hi there Kevin, regarding your question, we are doing everything possible to help affiliates recover for lost time, we are looking at this case by case because there are so many different situations. Some affiliates for example chose to promote only one casino. In the light of this we are helping affiliates recoup the values not earned during that period, either by increasing their rev share during a period of time among many other things. Not everyone lost during that period, in fact we helped several affiliates earn more, since we never fully agreed to the policy ourselves, this was imposed before I came in, and I have been with Minivegas for over a year now, so it was a looooooooooooong battle :p
    So we encourage affiliates to speak to us so we can work toguether in establishing that first step and finding a solution. To equate how much was lost if any during that period and work toguether in acquiring a solution.

    I think I left my contacts around somewhere and Daniela is always nearby to help also :)

    Take care all,
    monica

    Congratulations Vegas Affiliates! Thank goodness. I can say that my revenues have increased and been paid on time almost exclusively after I met Monica. She found money I was owed from an old account - while I was complaining to them about the old problems. I can say she has gotten thousands of dollars that were "lost" - and actually they were lost because I had bad codes up (from an old media buy) they could have easily kept it. I was worried they would but she got on it and made sure I got the cash.

    This thread reads like the issues are resolved, yet these guys are still marked Rogue on Casino Affiliate Forums

    Sorry for that! Vegas Affiliates is now changed as they should have been 1 month ago. Bad followup on my part.

    They are marked certified with a warning. The warning is there for the same period of time with which they kept the predatory change. Once that 'probationary period' is over, they will automatically be set as fully certified with no warnings.
