    Thumbs up Congratulations Haiko!!
    A little birdie just told me Haiko is a finalist for the Most Vocal Advocate Golden Link Award. WTG Hster! I can't think of anyone who is more deserving of winning a Most Vocal Advocate Award. And yep, you do have a :cough: reputation for being :cough: vocal, but I'm placing the emphasis on Advocate.

    Kudos on being a finalist and here's hoping you take home the award. And a big thanks for all you've done over the years for Affiliates, Merchants and the Industry!

    He will most likely win this honor, but because of his open criticism of Messer and LS during their recent fiasco (well-deserved criticism I might add), he will not be invited to attend the awards to receive his honor.

    Congrats Haiko. You have indeed done a LOT for this industry. Whether you win or not you are da man!

    Did someone say a most vocal award?..... ROLMAO. I'm sure glad I don't have Haikos phone bill and travel receipts. Go get 'em Haiko as you have the proxie vote of the ABW community to push you to the top of the Award list.

    TY all, but I can think of better winners ... Last year I nominated ecomcity Mike -- yeah I did, and this year ... Kellie ... both should have won / should win (IMHO) I feel honored for the nomination but ... I'd rather they [LS] spent the event $$$ on fixing athena so that more affs can get validated and ............ get their checks!

    Then, I've done my job - as a (current issue) LS affiliate advocate, and then we can cantinue moving forward together to address the issues, LS, or otherwise.

    See there you go again Haiko, vocalizing the hot points for discussion well before attending this affiliate/Network function.Swagger in there and give them the collective thoughts of this forum on the most sensitive pro-affiliate issues. You sure know them as you hawk this board till your spitting on the inside of my CRT. Go win the Award and hang it in the ABW Hall of Shame.

    First nominee would be 180Solutions as a name etched in the Hall of Shame.

    Congrats Haiko. I can't think of a better and more deserving guy to win it.

    Your honesty and and straight to the point talking without giving any bullshoot should be a very valuable lesson to many people who use these forums.

    I am proud to call myself a friend of yours. Now you go out there and kick some ass.

    Gee, I thought sure I would be most vocal. LOL

    Guess they looked at affiliates who were vocal before the LS fiasco.

    But not to take away from Haiko's efforts, none of us could be vocal without this great forum. Thanks Haiko and congratulations!

    Well deserved - and earned.

    I wonder how many less affiliates we would have if Haiko wasn't around? And how much more cr*p we would be putting up with from all the clowns in this business if Haiko wasn't here? The landscape would be totally different, despite what would be an obvious vacuum.

    Glad you do what you do...

    Rather then giving Haiko the award - the award should be CALLED

    The Haiko De... Most Vocal Advocate Award

    If he didn't "invent" ABW, there would be no place for the rest of us to "vocalize"

    It would be the best legacy (other then the progress and improvements in our profession) that ABW could receive.

    and then...

    the prize can go to the runner up (all of whom mentioned above are deserving)

    Soon as it's official, I'll be the first to send Haiko a parasite T-Shirt (although the one I'll send is starting to look a bit ragged

    Congratulations Haiko
