I'm wondering if the amazon network, which just happens to be at the peak of activity, is also affecting our servers? Do they run on a separate system than their hosting or their networks?

I guess they run on different servers. Right now PV is pretty fast again. Not as fast as during normal days, but still way better than a few hours ago. I think Amazon is at it peak right now with Europe and America shopping together. On PV Asian members are a big part of the community, while I don't think they're that big on Amazon because they have their own webshops.

I'm trying to set up a targeted ad but it doesn't seem the 51% discount is active. Can anyone help? Is there supposed to be a promo code for this?

PV has much less activity the final hours of the server day (most ppl done with Group Ads/1% ads and the recycles have also all mostly expired as well).

What's weird is MTV was giving me all kinds of slowness/timeouts etc...I've been gone for a few minutes so not sure if they persist...just here for a moment.

Ok, as far as I can tell the discounts for pure advertising aren't working at all and it's still the 26th. I hope this promotion gets extended after it's fixed, it's not showing me any kind of discount on all the advertising options.

@Dan, I think something is wrong as well. But you can buy today, if you don't get a discount, you'll be compensated tomorrow! smile

Druth, i just waited and clicked a bit later, when it was fine. A few ads might have  expired, but i managed to click the bigger ones and most of the others, so i didn't lose much.

@gugakip, I just read your post but now it's not the 26th anymore, hopefully something can be figured out later. Also, without the discount active I might not even have enough money in my balance right now to buy the amount that I would like lol.

dwarkadas,


Unknown.

By End of Jan Marc should have a bigger idea of when he can start paying it off.
2018 has more assurances to be a big focus to get it paid off (expenses have been cut down even more and focus has been redirected with what resources we have and yet another year under our belts of improvements and products).

The discounts for ads don't show up anywhere, they are reflected in the prices already.

AWS servers are dedicated, how other AWS network is functioning doesn't have any effect on us - unless if they had a major outage, but that would mean the whole service wouldn't work basically.

But that's the point slo, I still saw the original ad prices everywhere, it's now the 27th and I'm still seeing the same prices as yesterday on all of the advertising options. Take Ad Grid views for example: Regular price is $1 for 5000 impressions, that's the same price that I saw yesterday and that I'm seeing today (I clicked all the way to the last step, where you select a payment method and confirm the price). These discounts didn't work, at least not on my end.

Alright, if you don't believe me, here's another example: My last Targeted Ad campaign I purchased at a 60% discount, that makes it $0.004 per click (TA-6263214). If I try to set up the exact same campaign again I get a price of $0.01 per click during checkout, if there is supposed to be a 51% discount, the price should be $0.0049 per click. I don't know what else to say, it's not working.

@Dan there's a difference if a promo code is used or if prices are lowered directly. During the last time we had promo codes where some of the campaign types still had pricing from a previous sale, so the discount actually stacked on top of that.

That was fixed a sale/two ago and the current prices are correctly 50% off.

This still doesn't make sense. Tell me, what would the price per click be for a banner only targeted campaign with the targeting option '10 clicks during whole lifetime by one user' without any discounts? Whatever the original price may be, that minus 51% probably doesn't amount to such a round number like $0.01 per click.

Just so you understand where I'm coming from, in the 24th and 27th November news thread it mentions a 60% discount on Targeted Advertising. I have no idea where that second discount was that you mentioned slo that apparently stacked with the 60%.

The point is: I buy a campaign with a cost of $0.004 per click and think that's with 60% off. Now in december you announce a 51% discount and now the same campaign costs me $0.01 per click? So now I have to pay 2.5 times the amount for the same campaign in comparison to november. 

I was expecting a christmas discount when I purchased in november (Marc might've even announced something for christmas at that time I'm not sure though). So I wanted to use the november promo as a test campaign and wanted to purchase more now in december (I wasn't expecting another 60% discount btw, I'm totally fine with 50% off). But now I'm sitting here and have to pay 2.5 times the amount instead of just a slightly increased price.
