New approach for recognizing forum members
Beginning with today's recognition of member participation in the forums for February (see below), we are using a new approach that will take into account a slightly different set of factors. No method is ever going to be perfect, but we believe the new approach much more accurately measures the overall quality and value of member contributions. Please read this thread for more details.

Recognizing February's most active AMs
Hats off to the most active affiliate program representatives in February. We're giving an extra special thanks to Renee from Rewards Affiliates, who was the most active affiliate program representative and continues on the list this month. She will be the featured affiliate program representative on the GPWA home page for the month of March.

What's the longest power outage you've ever had?
We suffered an extended power outage this past weekend when a storm on the East Coast of the U.S. severed the connection to the power grid for our data center. Power was not restored until nearly three days later. And we were lucky compared with many others in the area. Emergency backup generators kept the GPWA website running. Without them we would have been down for three days. So, we want to ask about your experiences with power outages. Be sure to share details on what you do to protect against them. View poll

New MessageHow do I know if an online casino is reputable?
ACGMatt writes:
I receive emails quite often from online casinos I've never heard of asking me to join their affiliate programs. My question is: Besides looking at the sponsor list on the GPWA, where can I go to figure out if the casino is honest or if they're ripping off players? I used to use a website that has since been bought out by an affiliate, so I'm not sure if they're honest or just promoting whoever pays them. read more
