Back in April we got together and put together a shortlist of community ads that can be posted to other graduated sites. That was a very successful campaign with probably a thousand or two "click throughs" to Code Review.
Let's reboot the process and roll the ads out again!
The following are the top-3 voted candidates, and will move on to the 'post to ads' system:
The possible candidate sites for these ads are (graduated, computer-related, not Stack Overflow):
- Super User
- Server Fault
- Game Development
- Database Administrators
- Information Security
- Theoretical Computer Science
Are there graduated sites that make sense in addition to these (not Stack Overflow - off-limits)?
Last round we only targeted Programmers....
What's a good way to narrow down this decision?
I would like to see ads on Programmers, and potentially comp-sci, GameDev, and Webmasters. Possibly more. Do all the ads go to each? Decisions, decisions....
What are Community Promotion Ads?
There is a blog post about community ads, but the short version is:
Community Promotion Ads are community-vetted advertisements that will show up on the main site, in the right sidebar. The purpose of this question is the vetting process. Images of the advertisements are provided, and community voting will enable the advertisements to be shown.
What are we going to do?
We are going to make ads for Code Review, and 'inject' them in to the ads that are shown on sites like Programmers
These ads are shown in a cycle that is displayed to viewers of those sites. Any graduated site, oher than Stack Overflow, is a candidate site for community ads.
- What sites should we advertise on?
- What should the adverts be?
The ad submissions posted as answers on this question, that get the highest votes will be the top candidates for the actual ads on other sites. You can make special ads for certain sites if you want too. You should clearly include in your answer any details you think may be relevant.
We will run this till Halloween (Oct 31, 2014)!
The strict rules for the ads:
- The image that you create must be 220 x 250 pixels
- Must be hosted through our standard image uploader (imgur)
- Must be GIF or PNG
- No animated GIFs
- Absolute limit on file size of 150 KB
The highest voted ones were:
May the odds be ever in your favor!
