I'm sure this has been answered but I can easily Isgrm said answer. How do we confirm our purchase goes through the Link? I've been buying. I see the octooverl link but when I go to search for stuff the tag goes away.

Is there a proper order I should be following?

Last year (or the year before)when I wondered about this also, a list of all the purchases was posted and everything I had bought was on the list so I assume it is still working the same.

We forgot to pay our dues last year. A donation will be coming this month.

Would it be possible to include the Canadian Amazon link in the forum header along with the current link? I'd be happy to use it, but I'd also be far more likely to remember to use it if it was in my face, just a little bit.

Addendum: Trying to use URLs with my feeble post count apparently looks bad, and makes me feel bad. :cry:

August is the new May. Sorry for the delay :cry:

I see the holiday reminder is back - and that's a good thing, but is it possible to tone down the color a bit? On the dark themes it is intensely bright white.

Unfortunately background colour doesn't appear to be an option.

https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/he ... /202049200
Amazon Associates may earn referral fees by sending traffic to smile.amazon.com or www.amazon.com.
So, in theory just switch the URL in the affiliate link to smile.amazon.com.

On a related note I just spent a stupid amount on amazon for Christmas. Enjoy your tiny slice OO.

good grief, report says I spent $3138 at Amazon this past year. Hope OO got a good slice of that.

Just used the amazon.ca link in the banner to order a monitor. How can we confirm that OO is getting its slice? My apologies if this has been asked before (or many times).

I don't think I've ever seen anything from Amazon.ca, but I will take a look (they are smart enough to not let me get a cut on my own purchases.. jerks).
No.

I'm not seeing anything, but maybe it takes a bit to post. Plus there was a lot less purchasing on the US side as well (a couple hundred bucks lower than normal for black friday/Christmas shopping). Still think we should be ok for the year, I can make up the difference if there's a delta.
No.

*sad face*

Oh, it was a market seller, not Amazon itself. That might be it.

Crap. Oh well, Amazon didn't have the product.
