    Joke of the Day - KOLIMBO
    A little while back I applied to a merchant at Kolimbo.

    As the feeds are available for download before approval is granted, I figured I'd get a site setup and ready to upload upon approval. But the links in the feed were all direct-to-merchant-site; no MYAP or whatever where you insert your ID and then run with it.

    So I send a message, clearly explaining that there is something wrong with the feed, and hopefully they can take care of it.

    I get a response telling me that I need to be approved by the merchant in order for my links to work.

    So I send a mesage again, explaining again that the links go directly to the merchants site. The links are not MYAP links and they will not track sales, merchant approval or not.

    At this point, merchant approval has already been granted.

    Again I get a response from Kolimbo....(drum roll please)......

    "Your tracking links will not work untill you are approved by the merchant."

    Email me your Kolimbo ID and I'll look into it for you.

    ben at kolimbo.com

    In the meantime, here's a better joke of the day:

    "On his first day, a newcomer to prison heard the other inmates roar with laughter each time one of them called out a number. Mystified by this, he asked his cellmate what was happening. “We know all our jokes so well that, to save time retelling them, we’ve numbered them,” he was told.
    Thinking he would join in, the newcomer shouted “208.” To his amazement, the whole prison shook with laughter. The cellmate wiped tears from his eyes and commented, “We hadn’t heard that one before.”

    The issue at hand has nothing to do with my Kolimbo ID or my Kolimbo account. It has to do with the links in a merchant feed hosted by Kolimbo.

    Here is the feed:

    OK, the feed is fixed and you are approved for that merchant.

    Sorry for the delay and the confusion.

    Was this an error on Kolimbo's part, or that of the merchant?

    If the merchant, I'll assume that a test purchase is in order to see if they have the correct code in the place where it matters even more.

    We have checked the feed with the merchant and it is tracking correctly.
