A couple years back we ran an advertising campaign using community ads on other network sites. For those who might be unaware, community ads are "community-vetted ads that will show up ... in the right sidebar" of the respective site. You can see community ad threads on several graduated sites. As an example, here is the top-scoring ad from our previous campaign, by @squeamish:
I think we should make a new campaign for 2016. So, post your ad suggestions below! All ads must follow these requirements:
- The image that you create must be 300 x 250 pixels (wider than before), or double that if retina.
- 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 surrounding it.
After a reasonable consensus has been reached (based on votes after 2 weeks or so), the top-scoring ad(s) will be submitted to the community-ads meta posts of several related sites.
