    Default Ahhhh... The Good Old Days! What Do You Miss The Most?

    As we all know, things in the iGaming industry (and online marketing world) are in constant perpetual motion- changing all of the time. Do you ever catch yourself reflecting on the "Good Old Days?" You know, the times of the Wild West where competition ceased to exist and it felt like the money making opportunities were endless???

    The question of the hour... What is it that you miss the most from when you first started in the industry? Could be from 2 years ago to 10 years ago.

    I miss blindly, and naively starting new projects all the time, and seeing them succeed! Now days you have to be methodical!
    I also miss being able to stay awake for 2-3 days at a time and slam out a project!

    Yes, it was much easier in the good old days. Now any schmuck with an internet connection can be up and running in less than an hour.

    But now - also, if you have a new stupid idea or act crazy enough in a video you could go viral (not very likely, but still possible).

    Default I miss Affilate trips

    I miss the days when Affiliate managers would arrange special trips to bring together their top performing affiliates on a special full day trip. Casino Coins was one of the first and there trips were eventful like a half day helicopter and ride and picnic in the Grand Canyon or a weekend of golf and sailing in Antigua.

    These trips were so helpful in cementing good relationships with not only the Aff programs but also other affiliates. These trips were far more beneficial and fun than any trade show I have been too.

    Ah the good ole days............

    I miss the old "google dance" , when , about once every month, google updated their index, so exciting, lolol, and you never where pulled down like 300 spots like these days.

    Also things were easier, rel="nofollow" didn't exist and the green toolbar pr was a real signal

    I miss the days visiting CAP was a "must" every day, otherwise you couldn't follow the soap, and CAP didn't need mods to start discussions and had to write "woulde be" articles

    I miss the Captain's posts..

    I miss the call for the cabbage (don't we have a cabbage emoticon?)

    I started out as a gambler, so I would really like the days back when I could play at Crown Games with a 100% match bonus and a 4x wagering requirement. That was easy money!

    I miss gifts from affiliate programs - times have really changed.

    I remember my weeks and weekends were spent like this sometimes.
    - Pepsi Max for sustenance
    - Jello for dessert
    - Pizza for lunch and dinner

    I would sit in my condo, and I wouldn't answer the buzzer, I would pretend I wasn't home. Aircon on, hoodie up, headphones on, corner lamp on, powering through code and talking with designers. I would venture out once or twice a week to see my folks or a girlfriend, return and power through more code and work.

    Bonustreak and I used to spend hours on the phone swapping ideas, talking, finding ways to take over the world (very much like pinky and the brain)

    I still brainstorm with a few people, its great to find someone on the same page as you, where you urge each other on.
