    Looks like I had better find something profound to say so I can post.

    Whoa! Looks like someone will be able to do all their Christmas shopping with this prize package.

    Congratulations to Haiko and the sponsoring merchants for a job well done!

    I'm really interested in this prize though:

    Many thanks to Haiko for having given Tiger the opportunity to open our partner forum here.....

    many thanks to all of you, for without all your posts, participation, comments, and viewpoints, i would have never learned so much of what i know now, i would have never met or developed the extended family i have come to know at ABW !!!

    What makes this board special and stand apart from the rest is our community....



    Congrats to all of you. Here's to the 200,000 post!! The future is so bright, i'm wearing shades...

    Hats off to Haiko for providing a place where affiliates and merchants can interact with the added benefit of "being a family." And a place where we are knocking at the door of the 200k post. The growth of ABW over the last year has been incredible!

    This prize list is incredible. I was reading the list to my wife, and her eyes just kept getting bigger and bigger, even though she didn't know what everything on the list was.

    Too bad I have to slow down posting due to my work situation. It's all about timing, right?

    You're going to need a spreadsheet of that list to make sure you go through all those gift certificates.

    That is Awesome.

    Thanks to Haiko and all the many merchants who are obviously committed to courting the strong affiliates that flock here at ABW.

    For an unprofessional board where merchants were supposidly going to be running away from, I invite certain people to look at what has happened here since the time that speculation was made - HA! - Here's "one in your face".

    OK - maybe I'm being a little unprofessional pointing this out but since they had the gall to make such statements in the first place, I feel committed to respond.

    Thank you Haiko for all you do!

    Well lookie lookie lookee. Prizes galore and I niped a Photo of Andy in a pair of Akiva's private labeled skivies. You got any wallet size reprints Andy. Now I bow down to our leader Haiko for gutting it out and making ABW into a viable platform ( my case a ) for the real issues in affiliate marketing.

    Like the networks know ....we aren't worth a hoot without the merchants. Chipping in prizes is a great confidence builder and I'm sure some lurkers will try and time some posts to be in the running for #200,000. I'm happy PopDawg enjoyed his year as the ABW Queen (is that the right title?) even though he has the same chance as last time to slurp Starbucks on a house account.

    Well I have to end this post so I can rack up another somewhere within this testiment to the power of the written word. Sure hope I spell everything write if the ABW Gods shine on me as the winner. Just my luck it will be Charlie posting as he's not much of a sharer.

    Mike & Charlie ...

    That is really impressive!
    - but no more really than the tremendous help that an affiliate receives when participating here. What I learn here every day and the encouragement I get here make feel confident that I too can enjoy success in this business, and to a small degree (so far), I AM!

    This is an awesome forum!

    Haiko how about a rule such as you need so many posts to be eligble to win, seems unfair that for a lurker to make a random post and win all those goodies.
