Dont know wat's goin on, Are they closing YPN?
Please everyone login and send them a note and call on Monday!
It was making average 4xx.xx / day and I held on during the down turn times in hopes to see those numbers again.
I left enough online to see a xx.xx/day revenue to watch what happened. To make a long story short...it was .49 at 11:00 today. What is that?
Glitch or not...there is no way I can wait to find out what it's going to do next.
I'd like to keep a watch on someone here who is still planning to test the program though...The calculated risk is just not our favor.
Beta Results - Failed (IMHO) - Is YPN Broken - Yes

Due to the quality of the leads generated from your sites, we have disabled the use of Ad Targeting for your account. You may continue to display contextually-matched ads that Yahoo! serves, however, the matching suggestions provided by the use of Ad Targeting will not be utilized.
What does it mean in the scheme of things?
P.S. Has anyone who has sent an email to Yahoo complaining about this received a response yet, if so post it here so we can get some real information.

Fire, I've emailed them twice and so far heard nothing.
In response to your noted concerns regarding a decrease in ads displaying in your Yahoo! Publisher Network account in recent days, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. This was is due to a partial system outage triggered during routine maintenance. Not all publishers are affected. We are actively addressing the issue and expect improvements by next week. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience.
Should be fixed by next week! Gee, no rush.

"You may have noticed a decrease in impressions in your Yahoo! Publisher Network account recently. This is due to a partial outage that occurred during routine maintenance. We are actively addressing the issue and expect improvements by next week. Thanks for your patience."
So everything may look back to normal but the fact that in the message they say next week must mean they are still working on stuff and earnings will probably be less than normal until next week. It would really be great if they would reimburse publishers for all the money lost but they probably won't.
We are now in stable mode with AS, we decided to remove all the YPN ads for a short time and we'll test again in a bout a week. I'm just tired of the drama with it all.
The good thing about this happening:
It caused me to re-evaluate some pages I hadn't looked at in years, site got a redesign and cleaned up some messy things that had been accumulating online.
Bad situations can be turned into good situations, you just gotta be looking for the good when you are feeling the bad:)
