GPWA TIMES October 10, 2007
200,000 posts and growing!
On Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 12:05 p.m. EDT, the GPWA reached an incredible milestone - there are now over 200,000 posts in the forums. We can be very proud of the way we help and support each other as a community. It's not just a matter of the volume of posts, but also of the quality of posts. It's the level of caring, the thoughtful and intelligent discussion, the passion for acting ethically and responsibly, the willingness to share and the thirst for knowledge and ideas. Also, the posts as we crossed the 200,000 mark say something about the greater participation we are seeing on the part of affiliate managers in the forums. One of the posts was by an affiliate and two were by affiliate managers. And all three were in the private forums. We'd like to thank everyone for their contributions to the forums. They are contributions that should make us all proud. And there are a lot of us to be proud!

How does your 3rd quarter 2007 revenue compare with your 2nd quarter 2007 revenue?
The third calendar quarter of 2007 just ended (July to September). Since we have not asked how members are doing in terms of gaming revenue since a few months after the UIGEA passed, we thought this would be a good time to ask about how the second quarter revenue (April to June)compares to third quarter revenue.
