    Yay, is there still hope? My boycott may be off for a bit if the credit looks good:

    The reporting issue resulted in a loss of click data for specific widgets between November 16, 2007 and November 20, 2007. The issue has been corrected today and in the interest of ensuring you are properly credited for the missing click activity, we are crediting your account this evening to reflect a volume of click activity equal to the average CTR that each widget has received to date in November. This credit should appear in your account by tomorrow morning, 11/21.

    Credit summary: For November 16, 2007 through November 20, 2007, you will see a click count credit based on the CTR average between November 1, 2007 and November 15, 2007 multiplied by your daily impression volume. For example, if your affected widget(s) averaged a 1% CTR between 11/1 and 11/15, and a credit day received 1000 impressions, your account will be credited a total of 10 clicks.


    strangely enough it did not seem to be limited to the MerchSense widgets, anyone see the same behavior?

    Okay, they updated stats and they look better but as stated in the email they think the problem only effected the merchsense widgets but I really think it effected all of them. please mention if you see the same thing.

    Still going along ok for me. I've noticed a drop in clicks but I'm guessing thats more to do with their US only thing. I gotta work out some geo targeting.

    widgetbucks are big motherfuckers
    they accept your website then they tell you ur account is suspended
    I added a website of mine with arabic content more than 40k visitors / day
    so I got fastly the 100$ :D then removed them to see if they gonnna pay me or not then after the 45days they mailed me ur account is suspended
    why they showed ads on my website if it's in a language not accept
    pefff i advise you all to use ADSENSE NOTHING ELSE

    You haven't heard from them yet? That's not so weird, probably very busy.
    But not hearing from them means 2 things: you are not accepted AND you're not NOT accepted yet.

    Patience :)
