    Annoying Message
    Why do Linkshare have to continually annoy affiliates with messages that mess with out browser? Now I find every time I login after I have cleaned up my Internet files I have this annoying message that I have to close every time. It was bad enough with the old interface how they used to display that big nasty bold message about email settings. Now this is the latest way they have found to annoy us.

    I thought it was just me. Every time I log in I click "Don't show this anymore" and every time I log in I get the same message.

    Clicking on the link 'Don't show this anymore' worked for me. I don't get that message anymore.

    yes it works until you clear your cookies and then it will magically reappear, nice smart programing there!

    So what they have done is they remember the setting in a cookie instead of storing it with one's profile on their server. I think its just lazy programming. If I change PCs or clear cookies, it will pop up again. Great.

    Sorry about this folks. We should have anticipated this. I will see what we can do about changing how this works.
