    Pls. Pls. Pls.

    fixed your links, overly outdated promotion, etc, do some drm or some script that when it's expired they don't exist on your section!

    It is a waste of time thinking the links on special offer section are available and just to find out that they are expired few months ago!

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd also like to add to Merchants that if you have a promotion could you specify when the special is expiring and if it's ongoing specify it too!

    Most of the time I hate finding them and not knowing if the promo is ongoing or what!

    TIA

    It's also an issue if affiliates use Linkshare's dynamic banner rotations. We end up getting those outdated promotions rotated in.

    How can merchants expect affiliates to keep stuff up to date when they don't keep stuff up to date themselves?

    Nova,

    We've been mentioning this for about 2 years now and the merchants still don't listen. But we'll get emails from them stating that we shouldn't be running such and such an ad because it's expired.

    The biggest PITA is having to look at every link they have to see which are current and which have expired.

    You would think that some of these merchants would become more customer friendly.

    Bob
