    This may be an old issue - not sure...

    I am proud to be a member of ABW and in my my emails to merchants, etc... I always let it be known that I am a member of ABW.

    I'd like to think that membership carries with it some credibility to say I am an honest affiliate that doesn't play tricks or dishonest practices.

    I think membership status (full membership?) should be considered noteworthy and it would be nice to have an image icon or something to incorporate in websites and emails.

    Is there such a thing in place already that I am unaware of?

    Is there any criteria that must be met prior to using or broadcasting membership?

    If none exists - can something be created?

    Hi John,

    Good Suggestion! But what about few of the memebers who just use ABW to get the insight of what other memebers are talking about. Hope you know what I mean.

    Recent event of LS titanium award fiasco is one of the very recent example. Its really sad what happened that one of us was back stabbing us.

    If there is any solution to this then I guess its a good idea.

    Well, I would recommend only the most senior moderators of this board select those eligible and meet specific criteria.

    Do we have a problem with any of ABW most senior members?

    Either way - I would like to see this up for some discussion.

    guam,

    Interesting suggestion. Not sure what the 'criteria' should be though??? I think it all comes back to who's going to 'certify' an honest affiliate? Ms. B has had enough trouble and she has commited more time than most to that endeavor.

    Hey great! Now I can see those sites that belong to ABW members and try to figure out which username goes with the site.
    And one would think that no unethical affiliates would be stupid enough to put it on their site. Heck, anyone seeing an unethical site with that on it would surely come here and out them!

    I'm fairly new so I hope no one minds that I posted one on my site.

    If I'm too new just let me know and I'll take it down

    Thanks a bunch!

    > I'm fairly new

    Your not new any more, you are now a "Member"

    So enjoy displaying your "Proud Member" logo everywhere.

    Haiko how much is your bandwidth bill going to be after I add this to all my sites. Might want to tell people to host this themselves no? Just trying to help

    nyfalcon,

    Our total monthly bandwidth usage is over 200 GBs, the image won't add too much to that, and it's only right that we host it. Thanks for the look out tho.
