Congratulations on receiving a new design! Included with your new design is the Community Promotion Ads system. For those who are unfamiliar with how this works, please read onwards!

What are Community Promotion Ads?

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.

Why do we have 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:

  • interesting chemistry research sites
  • useful resources for practitioner and student alike
  • the site's twitter account
  • 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. This also serves as a way to promote information and resources that are relevant to your own community's interests, both for those already in the community and those yet to join.

Why do we reset the ads every year?

Some services will maintain usefulness over the years, while other things will wane to allow for new faces to show up. Resetting the ads every year helps accommodate this, and allows old ads that have served their purpose to be cycled out for fresher ads for newer things. This helps keep the material in the ads relevant to not just the subject matter of the community, but to the current status of the community. We reset the ads once a year, every December.

The community promotion ads have no restrictions against reposting an ad from a previous cycle. If a particular service or ad is very valuable to the community and will continue to be so, it is a good idea to repost it. It may be helpful to give it a new face in the process, so as to prevent the imagery of the ad from getting stale after a year of exposure.

How does it work?

The answers you post to this question must conform to the following rules, or they will be ignored.

  1. All answers should be in the exact form of:

    [![Tagline to show on mouseover][1]][2]
    
       [1]: http://image-url
       [2]: 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.

  2. The question must always be tagged with the magic tag. In addition to enabling the functionality of the advertisements, this tag also pre-fills the answer form with the above required form.

Image requirements

  • 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

Score Threshold

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.

    $\begingroup$ Are related stack exchange sites eligible for Ads? For example, Physics, Biology, etc. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ They're eligible, yes. Your community would be the ones determining if that's what you actually want to steer readers to, though. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Molx biology might be a good site to advertise, but I think they'd need to come up with the graphic for us. We're not designers. :-) $\endgroup$ May 14 '15 at 17:54

    $\begingroup$ @GeoffHutchison I did Physics (because it was easier, there was already a logo and styled site name), but I'll give a try to Biology later. They are close to graduation too, and there are some posts about the possible/future design. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Never mind. I think I see. What should the title of he question be? And do I ask it on Chemistry or Chemistry-meta? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Again, just working with the proposed Biology Site Design. Once the design is launched, it might be a good idea to update this to fit the final logo/background. $\endgroup$

    May 15 '15 at 0:08
  • $\begingroup$ @GeoffHutchison Yeah, and I agree with them. I added the background because the picture would look too empty otherwise, but an update is a must. Shouldn't take too long though, so I'll keep an eye open. $\endgroup$

    May 15 '15 at 3:13
  • $\begingroup$ Since they graduated a couple of hours ago, maybe now is a good time to update this. $\endgroup$ May 21 '15 at 3:43
