    Why don't you guys just shut it down for a week and get all the upgrading and fixing done for the rest of the year? Look ahead, figure out what you want to do, plan it out and do it, instead of all these down times every couple of months.

    I would still like to see whether a company is 'KEEP=YES' or 'KEEP=NO'. Someday, I do hope that gets incorporated into an upgrade, it would really be a help.

    We have KEEP=YES. So any sale for a year after the initial click will be credited to you!

    Shudders at the thought of all of us going through stats withdrawal for a whole week

    They could at least plan their upgrades at times other than peak selling periods. Take away the opportunity for unscrupulous merchants to shut off tracking. We have been in a major selling period for about a week now. In testing some merchants for click throughs during the down time shows that some did not track. Coincidence, maybe. Not! It took 21 hours for the first impression to show it was tracked after the down time. They should have just told us it would be down for 28 hours. Mind you, not everyone may have had this experience. Just letting off steam.

    I have a bad feeling this will go on all weekend as they don't seem to tend to anything over weekends. One week, I hope not.

    OK ..Let me chime in here.

    Things are not huncky-dorry at CJ .. The update thing IS a serious problem.

    The last time I saw a lag ..and had evidence .. I called Haiko ... He let the cat out of the bag.

    I have had merchants take their tracking code off line.

    Bottom line is there is no merchant fraud panecea at CJ ... It is up to you to find it and PROVE it.

    Reality...

    No MJ ..

    We all have to be pro-active and police the situation on our own.

    The Merchant in question I had had not tracked for 5 days ... Did CJ fraud detect it ... No I did.

    And the email from the affiliate manager was ..sales are down.


    you all must be dillegent .. Its your money

    Fishing is out anyhow...it's raining and I was commenting on 'cj shutdown for a week'

    Dhelle,sorry you've had this problem, and I suppose it's probably more prevalant then we imagine.
    Can you name the merchant, perhaps some of us have noticed a similar dropoff?

    Hi All,

    I just want to make sure it's just my acnts at CJ. The last transaction time I show(not time reported but the time of transactions) is at 2:33pm Friday CJ time. This is beginning to be a habit of no night time sales for me. Was everyone else getting sales after 2:33pm? Thanks!

    Coincidence Me baby!

    My last trans. yesterday (trans. time) was at 8:11 PM Pacific.

    A bit early of a cutoff--normally my buyers go to bed near Midnight. Sales overall have been a bit slower than I'd like, although not something to sneeze at either!
