Have you ever requested a banner in a size, style or language that wasn't offered?
This week, p.arena posted an interesting poll about banners, and we thought we'd make it the question of the week. Have you ever asked for banners in a size or language that was not offered by the affiliate program? If so, what was your experience in turnaround time and what do you expect generally from the sites that you promote? We're interested to hear what the general experience is with this and whether it is something many affiliates often require. View poll

(The home page) lets the potential player look around, get a feeling for the casino and make up his mind. (The registration page) forces the player to register - or get annoyed and leave. I personally hate landing myself on registration pages when I look for services online. Then again, it's all about converting our traffic...I was wondering what's your take on this one? read more
