first problem is you would be going against their TOS
11 . Under no circumstances may you make your own banners for use with DatingClub.com's program.
12 . DatingClub.com's banners and text links are the only recognized links to our site. All blind links, other text links and/or any other misuse of hits are cause for immediate termination of the Host account. In such cases, DatingCash.com will not pay for any commission listed for that Host site, and may be cause for legal action.
2nd problem It would be EXTREMELY easy to catch you if you did alter it.
Part of the js code which pulls the banners also tells them that the banner has been pulled and is being viewed. If they get clicks from your site without the banner ever being pulled they know you have broke the rules.

Well,thank you so much for your kind reply.
Now i see we can not alter the affiliate code. But i find the links on this site to affiliate sites are not the ones given by their merchants.
For example, i find the link to CJ.com reads like this: removed
link to Linkshare.com reads like this: removed
It seems you don't have to use the banners or textlinks provided by CJ and Linkshare.
How do you do that?

Those are internal links they pull the actual link from a database. but what you do not see is a 1 pixel gif that tells them the ad is being shown.
