New public link exchange forum created
The GPWA has had a private link exchange forum for many years. Recently there have been many posts in the public areas of the GPWA Web site by folks that are not private members about link exchanges. So, a couple weeks ago we started a poll on whether a public links section should be added. Based on the outcome of that poll we have created a new Link Exchange forum available to everyone who participates in the GPWA forums.

Have you gotten an affiliate program to take action based on content theft?
There have been many discussions in the GPWA forums about the unauthorized use of articles created by webmasters. One frequent suggestion is to report the copyright violation to affiliate programs used by the webmaster that has stolen the material. For today's poll question we are interested in finding out from those that have taken this approach whether they received cooperation and support from the affiliate programs. View poll
