    2004 and previous sales gone!
    I just tried to run some December reports for some of my Linkshare merchants, and discovered something quite shocking. Other than a few transactions from December that posted in January, all sales before 1/1/05 are GONE.

    Add mine to the missing list!

    Also my May transactions (in number & total) are less than what it was a few days ago. No reversals! Transactions just vanished - I do not which ones or which merhants. Linkshare is on a mess.

    I've noticed disappearing May transactions with at least one Linkshare merchant, too. It sure doesn't give much confidence.

    Yep, I saw that a few days ago. No more history, gone with the wind. No information anywhere. No email. All my data from 1997 and after, just wipe out. Did they transfer our data to a third party? Who's really behind SynergyAnalytics?
    What else can we expect from these idiots? Anyway, http://www.****edcompany.com is their new kingdom.

    2004 data
    I just ran some reports (Sales and activity, and revenue report) from Dec 2004 and the data came up fine. Which report was giving you problems?

    So, you're working for LinkShare or one of their scr@wy subcontractors.

    Just CHECK AGAIN. Yep the reports are coming up now, but there's no data.

    Impressions and clicks show up for 2004, but no sales (other than the 2004 transactions posted in 2005). Nothing shows up for 2003 and before. No impressions. No clicks. No sales.

    Whelp, I guess this thread answers my question here:

    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=58766

    My May statistics have been changing without any additional sales or reversals. Something is definitely up here. What gives anyway, why do they need to mess with our history to get our checks out?

    Are any of you surprised? LinkShares current history shows that they are taking two steps back for every step forward lately.

    Stephen answered our concerns in his latest fly-by update.

    All of the historical data has been moved to Synergy Analytics:
