    American Apparel disappears without a trace
    It has completely left the CJ system. No email about it. Not in the deactivated list. Our clicks are not showing up in the invalid links report.

    I've never seen a merchant disappear like this before. If I'm right, then I'm deeply concerned.

    Could someone confirm this for me?

    I see them on the Deactivated list:

    American Apparel Store » View Links 11-Jul-2006 Active

    For me... searching for them the normal way fails to find their Advertiser Detail. ie not in the dropdown box on the CJ homepage, can't be found in the Get Links section, not in my deactivated list.

    But, by looking at reports for yesterday, I can click on their name & get their Advertiser Detail up, and it says deactivated.

    GOOD NEWS: I now know what their status is

    BAD NEWS: The CJ system just keeps getting more screwy

    "with the new reporting system, i couldn't find the "deactivated advertisers" report anymore..."

    Under Performance Reports I just clicked on over to the old reports and they show under Deactivated.

    Yes. CJ - virus.
    Both link work w/o any problem. Try 'Copy Shortcut' and paste it in address bar.

    It's in the new reports but like you I had trouble finding it, so I'm just using the old ones until they go away

    Same here, I was going "nuts" trying to find the Deactivated Report -- didn't think to look in the old reports.

    Question
    so, is it possible to find a "deactivated" list in the new system, or do we have to guess?

    For the new reports, Click Performance Reports then scroll to the very bottom, it'll say:
    Deactivated Advertisers - Last 30 Days then you have to click on the number which I did and

    It's screwed up too. Only shows thru 7/6.

    Normally when a merchant was deactivated, cj will send an email to you with a link which should take you to the deactivated merchant list. I say "should" is because the link in the email include the "." at the end which make the link don't work unless you manually remove the "." I thought about writing them email to let them know this little problem for years, but I guess I was too lazy and too busy to do that. Plus I'm so good at taking out that little "." that I almost enjoy doing it

    Sorry, what I want to tell you is that you don't have to find the deactivated merchant list, instead, cj will remind you via email.

    All is normal now - I guess there's just a lag in the CJ system...
