    Precious Moments LS on hold ... what does that mean exactly?
    I received an email from Linkshare saying Precious Moments is "on hold" as of May 31. When I go to the LS interface I can't even find them. LS is still listed on the Precious Moments site under affiliate programs.

    Anyone know if they have left LS?

    I received the same email from them. I found them under the Stopped tab and it shows Discontinued as their status. That usually means they have closed their program. Their links aren't working so time to pull them off my websites.

    A prior notice would have been nice.

    I got the "Check Your LinkShare Merchant Status Update" notice this morning which is a day after the program was ended(5/31). It made me mad because all my links were dead since yesterday and they noticed me today???

    Isn't there some kind of rules that requires merchants to give some reasonable period of time for affiliates to remove/replace their links before they shut down their programs?

    How could a network let merchants do this?

    Not really.

    We can try to avoid certain networks when there are other options. But sometimes we have to work with them when the specific merchants chose to be on those networks.

    In this case, good news is that Precious Moments is also having their program at Avantlink, that's where I'm going to...

    Still, LS shouldn't allow them to shut down their program without a prior notice. (At least I never received one)

    I didn't get advance notice either.
    But I think they might have fell in default on network payment, hard to say.

    Apparently, they've been network bouncing the past couple of years. They were on AvantLink before & AffiliateWindow (see the "Similar Threads" below).
