GPWA launches new wiki
We're pleased to announce the GPWA has launched a wiki. Unlike forums, wikis enable a community to collaborate with one another to develop articles that represent the knowledge and experience of all the members. Our wiki "launch project" is sharing with one another how to evaluate affiliate programs. Between all of us we have a great deal of expertise in this area. And we believe we can all benefit by sharing that knowledge. Like all successful wikis, the work we do together will expand to cover a wide variety of topics driven by the interests and expertise of our members.

GPWA forums pass quarter-million post mark!
At 6:50 a.m. EST this past Saturday, the 250,000th post was made in the GPWA forums! BetPartners made the milestone post and it was the 187th post in a thread originally started by GFPC in April. Then six minutes later, Chalkie responded to help us break the quarter-million post mark. Without the devoted participation of our members, the GPWA forum simply would not be what it is today. Thank you for your continued support and participation.

How does the second quarter of 2009 compare with the first quarter of 2009?
We've just completed the second calendar quarter of 2009, so it is time to ask our periodic question to members about how the revenue they are earning has changed over the last quarter. If you compare revenue from the second quarter of 2009 (April to June) to revenue from the first quarter of 2009 (January to March), how did it change? Did it get better, stay the same, or get worse?  View poll
