    To All Our Affiliates:

    We have changed our DNS name and would like to ask all of our affiliates to make sure that they have active links to our website. The DNS change happened on Tuesday, Dec. 2nd at 12:30pm. Please make sure that you update your websites from the CJ.com link system. Our website is still located at www.coloradopen.com

    Our new website is much easier to navigate and gives our customers more user friendly options. Such as online tracking, order history, order status, in stock vs on order items, etc.

    Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

    Have a good day!

    Now, this was sent yesterday, on the 4th, notifying me of changes made on the 2nd, and I looked in on my mail on the 5th. As it happens, I only have a link or two up for this merchant, so it's not any big deal for me.

    But inactive links for a few days in DECEMBER is bound to make a few people unhapppy....
    and having to redo links in december, when we are all pressed for time just ads to the irritation factor. Grrr...

    I'm still getting a 404

    This type of move is completely asinine and 100 times more so in December. Their irresponsibility towards their affiliates and their traffic is beyond belief!

    Good Grief! I wish that were one of my merchants so I could yank his links and tell him where the sun don't shine!

    What a total jerk!

    Mr.Merchant, if you do business in any way what-so-ever with parasites, your products will not be sold on my sites!!

    Farewell, CJ! I loved you when you were young and pure. I will try to remember you that way. Disclaimer: Comments are to be interpreted as opinion unless otherwise noted.

    It's hard to believe merchants make such radical changes right on Christmas...

    Don't they realize the impact it has on affiliates, his site may be more user friendly
    but he had all year to do it!

    Most aff's are flat out right now adding special promos and tweaking their sites
    and just don't have the time to re-do links!

    Yeap, got to be a Bonehead nominee

    I saw it first SandraR but I thought it was a boil or an abscess on the verge of bursting and I did not want to embarrass you

    At the same time, received a letter from Zoobooks warning me - ahead of time - that sales would not be current for a few hours, but would be updated as soon as some work was completed. Now, that's the way to do it. You go to your affiliates before you work on your site, and you tell them, "Hey, at some point in the near future, you may notice we are a little sluggish reporting, but it's okay, we will make sure you are taken care of."

    Oh, and SandraR, do I get a trophy?

    They probably didn't even give a thought to the fact that ALL of their affiliates would have to make changes to accomodate them, and during the busiest time of year for affiliates. My recommendation would be to make the changes as quickly as possible: pull their links and promote someone else who gives a !
