How do you prove earnings without breaching TOS?

I was wondering what other members opinions were, on wether or not you can share screenshots of your AS earnings with everything blanked out except the Imps and earnings. I thought it was agaisnt terms but see them all over, is it okay or not? I have searched AS blog and forum and cant find anything official except in the TOS that you cant share CTR EPCM.

It may seem like an odd question but where AS is concerened most of us like to be sure, and the correspondence i have from them says you do not share screenshots ,period. ACKKKKK!

Section 7 says click-through rates and other statistics relating to site performance in the program, which correlates to the all the figures that factor in between VISITORS and MONEY. It does say that you can disclose your earnings.

Your visitors aren't an indication of your performance as there are people with a few thousand impressions making less than those making a few hundred. So a screenshot displaying impressions (which is a stat that could be acquired from other statistical software) and earnings (as allowed by G), seems it'd be alright. I've seen 'shots for some publishers who make massive amounts, and something tells me they wouldn't sever a relationship with those individuals for a simple screenshot.

Thats what im wondering about, other publishers that may be pushing the envelope with the TOS, have gotten permission where others didn't, or like you said dared AS because they were such large accounts. Not having Yahoo as an alternative I think i will play it safe and use browser screenshots of the CSV.
