Update on KinkDollars Stats (FIXED) 11/10/2020

Hi everyone!

First things first, we are so sorry for the stats problems in KinkyDollars for the past month. We completely understand that there’s nothing optimal about being in the dark as stats are a vital part of any affiliate program. Thank you so much for your patience as we worked through this, but today we can happily say that the issue has been resolved!

What happened?

A combination of several factors caused a gradual slowdown in the calculation of KinkyDollars events. Practically, the data set grew to a size that the current optimizations were insufficient to keep up with the volume of data we were storing! It’s good that traffic is up, but obviously calculation should keep up as well. After efforts across multiple teams, optimizations were made that speed up calculations without changing the underlying logic. At the end, our calculations are now 2-3 times faster than they were in 2016, despite a much higher volume of data.

Scope

There was a delay in the calculation of statistics for the affiliate program. Raw data storage was not affected, and no data loss occurred. Detailed statistics from 2015 to 2018 have been archived, and in the coming weeks will be made available through modifications to existing interfaces. Payouts, their history, and related calculations are not affected and are currently available.

Timeline

Two changes that triggered a gradual slowdown were tracked down to August 29, 2020 (a change in archiving) and a change that broke an optimization (September 10, 2020). Internal monitoring noted problems beginning on September 16, 2020. A number of changes were made since September 16, 2020, culminating in the eventual fix on November 9, 2020. The backed-up calculations were completed on November 10, 2020.

What comes next?

The KinkyDollars Terms and Conditions policy will be updated with some practical guidelines around data retention. Once in place, an automated system for archiving will be implemented to minimize the potential for unchecked data growth.

If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me (affiliates@kink.com) and I’ll be happy to go over them with you.

All the best,

Delayed stats in Kinky Dollars 10/06/2020

Hi Everyone!

We wanted to give an update on the current issue some of you may have already noticed with your campaigns.

Towards the end of September, it came to our attention that the stats in KinkyDollars were being delayed by a few days. The good news is no data has been lost; it’s simply taking much longer to appear for affiliates than it should. However, we realize that this isn’t optimal for you or your business, so getting that fixed is our top priority.

We are also prioritizing the calculation and verification of September stats; once ready, we’ll send out payments to qualified affiliates who have reached their payment threshold. Please take a moment to make sure your tax information on file is current by logging in and going to your Tax tab.

As soon as we have further updates on the issue, I’ll post them here. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at affiliates@kink.com, and I’ll be happy to go over them with you.

Cheers!

Paris Carter

NATS Program No Longer Supported as of May 2017 04/18/2017

Important Affiliate Announcement:

Beginning May 1st, We will no longer support NATS, and will be moving our proprietary platform at beta.kinkydollars.com to the Kinky Dollars domain.

This means that any of our affiliates who have stats in NATS should, at this time, download all your historic data for your records.

NATS links will continue to redirect appropriately into our new platform, despite the absence of the NATS platform.

The effect for affiliates should be minimal, however we do encourage you to grab all of your historic stats, as well as reach out with any questions about the change you may have to affiliates@kinkydollars.com.

Best,
the Kinky Dollars Team
