    Well, I am a "no" vote, although I am wishing that I had.

    For the most part, I was not a current member in the program and couldn't just rush out and build a site that's going to bring in a stack of sales within a few weeks.

    I never got my T-Shirt

    However fair the A.M s try to make them, these things are always stacked in favour of people who have suitable high-traffic sites they can drop links into.

    Realistically you are looking at months, if not the best part of a year, to build up traffic for a new site.

    I won a beautiful sword and some cash bonuses.

    I liked it because I didn't have a ritual sword and I am too cheap to buy the things I need and want for myself. If it weren't for the contest, I still wouldn't have one. I will love to show it off.

    I also loved the acknowledgement.

    Mr.Merchant, if you do business in any way what-so-ever with parasites, your products will not be sold on my sites!!

    Farewell, CJ! I loved you when you were young and pure. I will try to remember you that way. Disclaimer: Comments are to be interpreted as opinion unless otherwise noted.

    Congrats Ssanf!

    (I've always wondered what kind of packaging a sword comes in...)

    I entered with a merchant here and even though sales have been very limited with them I ended up with a very sweet little bonus coming here because of it.
    I am far from a super affiliate and go after the ones that are more suited to everyone, not just the ones with huge numbers of sales being a requirement

    I like this statement:
    "However fair the A.M s try to make them, these things are always stacked in favour of people who have suitable high-traffic sites they can drop links into."
    I would add that, it usually also takes targeted traffic for that type of product also. If I have that, I'll participate, otherwise it's just a waste of time.

    AM's need to understand who will respond to their contests and why - Some do not. Then when all of their high traffic sites win, they say "Our contest was a huge success!"

    Exactly why I avoid those types
