For the past two years we have run community-promotion ads on other SE sites (graduated only), promoting this community. The current ad we're using is this:
In addition, now that we have graduated we can run ads on our own site. Candidate ad topics include:
- the blog (direct link to the blog, to encourage readership)
- writing for the blog, maybe something like this EL&U ad
- the sandbox, aimed at new askers
- any external resources that we have found useful for worldbuilding (map-making sites, for example)
Either way, we need images for these ads. And we can't just reuse last year's, because the size requirements have changed. Community ads will now be 300px wide by 250px high.
So, what ads do we want to make, both for ourselves and to run elsewhere? Do you have ideas for art to fit the new size requirements? Please share.
Soon there will be a separate post calling for submissions for community-promotion ads. This is not that post. I'm posting this now so that people can get started with drafting ads and adjusting -- or replacing, if we think it's time for a change -- our current external ad.
