It's getting a bit quiet here and we'd like to up our visibility a bit.
We think a good start for that is to create some directed Community Ads on other sites (as was discussed previously here).
This post is a place for anyone interested in creating an ad for another site to post it for review before we submit it to the target site. It's really important that we make a good impression with these because we have to convince the users of the target sites that this ad is worthy of being there.
There are a few rules for these ads:
- The image that you create must be 300 x 250 pixels, or double that if high DPI.
- 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
- If the background of the image is white or partially white, there must be a 1px border (2px if high DPI) surrounding it.
These can only be posted on "graduated" sites, so we won't be able to advertise on Beta sites like Woodworking.
Here are some sites I think would be good targets for us:
- Graphic Design
- Science Fiction & Fantasy
Note, these ads should be specific to the site. We don't want to spam one generic ad to all sites. So, for Anime, perhaps it reads something like "Need help drawing your own manga?".
If you have other ideas for good target sites, feel free to comment or edit.
