    Meritline Links Don't Work
    All the links I have for Meritline are not working. When clicked a "The system cannot find the file specified" page shows up. Are they still active?

    They sent an email January 27th about it. Daniel had posted about it on this thread, below is the email I got.
    Dear Valued Affiliate,

    Due to the difficult economic climate, Meritline has decided to suspend certain affiliate accounts to reduce our marketing budget. Please understand that this decision has been extremely difficult for us and is in no way a reflection of your performance. We will be evaluating each affiliate individually. If your account has been suspended, please do not be alarmed. We will periodically review your account and will reinstate your account at our earliest convenience. Please do not contact us regarding the suspension. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this difficult time and we look forward to working with you in the near future.

    Cordially,


    Stanley Liu

    It doesn't show that I've been suspended. Wouldn't it show it somewhere?

    I hadn't looked at them since the email. I just went to SaS and I'm still active also... I did notice they now offer a 0 day cookie on my account at least. I presume that is what they did was 'suspend' us by offering a session cookie? Might need to have Brian look into this on Monday.

    I just don't understand how suspending some affiliates will reduce their marketing budget.

    Some merchants are just plain stupid. They don't understand how affiliate marketing works or nobody told them. (or somebody don't want them to know)

    This merchant was given a free booth at SAS Think Tank last time. Somehow I was not convinced by the duo at the booth that they're genuine enough to expand the relation. Now that this surfaced, I may severe the relation completely

    I took mine down too, but I'd still like to know why the status shows active and none of the links work.
