While I’m flattered and appreciate the interest of so many fansites wanting to affiliate with EvaGreenWeb.com, it’s been a while since I’m NOT accepting any new affilites, unless you’re a friend of mine who happens to be opening a new site, or if you have a HQ fansite dedicated to Eva herself or her co-stars and family members. I don’t want to be one of those fansites that have thousands of affiliates that they don’t even visit, or even know who runs them, and I also prefer if your site have some content. It doesn’t matter if your site doesn’t have thousands of images, but it might be a site, not just some random fansite built in less than a day just to make profit with eventual ads. EvaGreenWeb.com is a profit-free fansite (the only ads here are those of my host) that doesn’t want to encourage money-seeking only fansites. While there’s nothing wrong in trying to make some cash out of a hobby that can be time and money consuming (I know about it very well), I’d like to see that your site exists for a reason more important than just cash, but because you definitely appreciate the artist in question and want to share the love for his/her work, unite fans and provide an updated resource. If you make money with your fansite, that’s perfectly fine in my book, as long as it keeps being what a fansite should be, not something without content, never updated and full of ads, just trying to cash on a profitable celeb. I had already posted about not accepting new affiliates in the affiliates page, but I receive quite a lot of emails despite my announcement. And I hope that this announcement on the main page will finally set the record straight. That said, if I’m not accepting your site right now, it doesn’t mean I’m accusing you of having a low quality fansite or being a vulture. I’ve been contacting by some cool fansites too and I thank them for the interest and wish them good luck. I just have too many affiliates in my humble opinion. And I’m not here to collect affiliates. Thanks for understanding.
