Well the first thing you can do is remove the link to them and their site, and your sales letter about them from your home page.

If you think they're cheaters, why continue recommending to them to others ?

newbornsm:

I just went to my Grand Impact stats and when I logged in they say that my site has not met their quality traffic standards so they terminated my account. They did this conveinantly as I got to my minimum payment to get my check.

Do we have another CyberThrill here?

Anyone else with this problem?

Chet

I hate to say told you so, but see my post at the very beginning of this whole grandimpact thing where I outlined all of the suspicious things about the program and how I thought given the number of reasons I had, Ryan should have started it off with a maximum of two out of five.

Listen to the Jester, he'll set ya straight.

Check the ClickQuick home page www.clickquick.com for their recent (massive) downgrade.

As I feared, the number of reports of accounts being cancelled or checks not being issued has reached a significant level.

You will also note that my account was cancelled for the same reason as Websitesponsors, interesting since I had never even placed a banner of their's on the ClickQuick web site.

I think we all know what this means. Good call jester.

Also, on another, and perhaps related note, I am no longer going to be rating programs as ****s. Unfortunately, with the current legal climate, I could be opening myself up to potential lawsuits, so I have to take precautions.

I am introducing a new rating of 1/2 (on the same scale of up to $$$$), that should provide a way to rate programs that have proven that they should be avoided.

As always, please note that all ratings on ClickQuick are based on my subjective opinion as well as a countless amount of feedback (and naturally opinions) I receive from members of this forum, and literally hundreds of daily visitor emails. I take rating programs quite seriously, and I work to insure that these ratings are accurate.

This doesn't mean my ratings are perfect, or the final word, but one possible interpretation of how a program could be rated in terms of an average affiliate's ability to be paid fairly and reasonably.

Anyway, I'll step down from my soapbox...

Companies like this sure give all online casinos a bad name.

Myself like Ryan, never posted a single banner on my website. I strictly promoted thier program for referrals only. I was what they called a traffic broker.

Oh well, no more gambling sites for me.

You can say it Jester it's ok http://www.very-cool-stuff.com/ubb/smile.gif

Default Grandimpact is ****!!

HI..

I'm operating BannerSponsor.com

Recently, If you view your payment history at grandimpact(Promised $.15 per click), you can see only "void"

Although I've never broken their terms, they are not going to pay me...

How can I do ?

I signed up for the GrandImpact a week ago, but haven't heard a word from them.


I think they are just collecting people's email address.

Oh well, if nothing else we can always run a denial of service on them. We may get kicked off our ISP but at least it'll **** them off for a bit http://www.very-cool-stuff.com/ubb/smile.gif
