Community Promotion Ads - 2012
What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is Going On Here?
TL;DR -- put images and links in the answers. If they get voted up enough, they will appear on the main site as community promotion ads.
This is a method for the community to control what gets promoted to visitors on the site. For example, you might promote the following things:
- cool desktop apps
- the site's twitter account
- scripts packs or power tools
- cool events or conferences
- anything else your community would genuinely be interested in
The goal is for future visitors to find out about the stuff your community deems important. And to click on it for great justice!
How does it work?
The answers you post to this question must conform to the following rules, or they will be ignored.
All answers should be in the exact form of:
[![Tagline to show on mouseover]] : http://image-url : http://clickthrough-url
Please do not add anything else to the body of the post. If you want to discuss something, do it in the comments.
The question must always be tagged with the magic community-ads tag.
- 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
There is a minimum score threshold an answer must meet (currently 6) before it will be shown on the main site.
You can check out the ads that have met the threshold with basic click stats here.
alttext on mouseover. And even when shown by non-compliant browsers,
altshould describe what is missing, not some tag line. So maybe it should be labeled "The text used on browsers that don't support images (like by readers used by visually impaired)". If a mouseover is wanted too, then besides the
titleshould be specified as well, after the image or link URL. Like:
: http://image-url "Tagline to show on mouseover"
