If you say that. people will believe it already.
It's just funny that other sites don'tr do that or need it.
Of course it can't be because you have shot yourselves in the foot. I remember a post how GJ has decadently ingratiated himself with the authority and so quasi the "pioneer" and the "prime example" for others want to be... others would say you have been backstabber with this approach.
However you presented yourselves to the (at that time not yet functioning and completely clueless authority) on the silver platter and obviously got their attention... even if not in such a way, as you imagined it. The shot backfired just as obviously, if one can believe coworkers of other platforms so much, how one is to believe you here...
As I said, I hope the noose does not tighten further and you get off with a black eye!
I honestly don't know what you mean with "I hope... you get off with a black eye".
We don't have a black eye nor did anything bad happen to us. We didn't have to pay a fine and we didn't sign a cease and desist letter, we simply decided for ourselves that we would abide by the law that applies in Germany and only advertise licensed gambling providers here instead of exposing ourselves to legal disputes in the future.
The new infobox feature was purely a decision we developed out of our conscience and responsibility towards newcomers. Without any legal obligation.
Your 3 smileys after your statement "If you say so, people will already believe it. " give me the impression that you do not give full credence to my statement. That is a pity, because from my point of view there is no reason to distrust our statements.
We have also never lied to our community in order not to damage our reputation. At some point, every lie comes to light anyway. We have been running the portal for almost 11 years according to the motto that our members are the center of attention and that our reputation and the support in the community are the basis for a successful internet project. And that only works if we are honest with our members.
And yes, we wanted to be trendsetters in the casino Affiliate sector - we wanted to cooperate with the German gambling authority, we actively sought talks to show the authority the need for an information platform like ours to inform as large a mass of players as possible about the new realities. We did all this because we are fundamentally in favor of regulated gambling, provided that the range of games is attractive enough and players are not driven into the black market.
However, the GGL is not the body that drafted the gambling law, but the authority that issues the licenses and monitors compliance with the gambling law.
