    Question Did anyone notice the twilight zone on Linkshare last night?
    OK. Granted it was late at night, and I'd already taken my sleeping bill. But...

    Did anyone notice a significant change in their Merchant terms?

    I was scrolling down my list. Without notice, I was disaffiliated with my biggest selling Merchant. Did they leave Linkshare? I wondered. Or weren't my sales good enough? (There were a few more surprise disaffiliations, but with smaller converting Merchants.)

    Without notice, I was approved for a site that had forever turned me down. No notice via e-mail, just POOF! They were on my list. And a few more that turned me down before, suddenly approved me - without me reapplying??

    There was a long list of long-time disenfranchised Merchants from my first venture into affiliate marketing (a flop) in 2000. Each had a *(asterisk) by it indicating they were no longer active, but there was no way to delete them from my account.

    I checked my create links just to be sure I wasn't dreaming. Except one, all of the new Merchants were actually on the list!

    Was I in the twilight zone? Will all of my new Merchants disappear when I (am able to) log-in into Linkshare? Did anyone notice this happening to their accounts last night?

    No twilight zone here. I have the same merchant list like yesterday. Could you please specify which merchant disappeared?

    I haven't noticed anything specific at LinkShare recently, but I often get the feeling I'm in the twilight zone when logged in there...

    Darn! I finally was able to log-in, and all was back to 'normal'. Linkshare must have had a technical burp.

    in each post frame, at the topmost far-right area. looks like a kinked triangle with a red liner and an | inside it. pause your mouse over it for further ID.
