I see Codegolf is running ads for its sandbox.

ad

Why don’t we do that?

If making ads, note that the required dimensions are 600x500 px (or 300x250).

    $\begingroup$ I love that idea and would love to see ads that encourage new users to give it a try! I am not very creative, but maybe I will give it a try later... $\endgroup$ – Sec SE - clear Monica's name Jun 30 '17 at 7:55

    $\begingroup$ Ours needs sandworms, though. $\endgroup$ – JDługosz Jun 30 '17 at 8:03
  • $\begingroup$ I'm thinking about something like "Don't know how to ask? Fix your bugs in the Sandbox!" and then a giant insect sitting in a Sandbox with someone attaching a band-aid to its wing. Though the term "bugs" might be too far away from WorldBuilding and would be better on SO, PPCG or similar sites. $\endgroup$ – Sec SE - clear Monica's name Jun 30 '17 at 8:13

    $\begingroup$ Yeah... Just posting a few ideas in the comments in case someone creative reads them and takes them as a starting point. Maybe a confused construction worker looking at a half-done planet like this one with a text like "Don't know how to ask? Check out the Sandbox!"? (... I'll stop with the ideas for now.) $\endgroup$ – Sec SE - clear Monica's name Jun 30 '17 at 8:21
  • $\begingroup$ Probably because no one made one. :-) Yeah, if people work out an ad concept and create the ad, by all means add it to the post! $\endgroup$ – Monica Cellio Jun 30 '17 at 16:05

    $\begingroup$ Having a sandcastle in construction would fit well. $\endgroup$ – Vincent Jun 30 '17 at 16:08
  • $\begingroup$ I wish there was a way to post a bounty for meta questions. This one deserves it. By the way, what are the graphic requirements? A large box with small text is awful easy to create. $\endgroup$ – JBH May 16 '18 at 5:15
  • $\begingroup$ I like @Vincent 's idea quite a bit. I get the feeling this is just a thing where people post different ideas and vote on them below, but I might steal this one and make a quick mockup when I get home. $\endgroup$ – Pleiades May 16 '18 at 18:55

  • $\begingroup$ Hey Renan, you should post this in the Community Promotion Ads for 2018. We need to raise awareness of the sandbox, and this is a great ad. $\endgroup$ – Gryphon - Reinstate Monica Aug 10 '18 at 17:23
  • $\begingroup$ @Gryphon thanks, I'll do it when I get home later :) $\endgroup$ – Renan Aug 10 '18 at 21:05

    $\begingroup$ @F1Krazy, Hah! it was late. I've corrected the original. Thanks for the catch! $\endgroup$ – JBH May 16 '18 at 13:22

    $\begingroup$ You should have asked in the sandbox before posting this qustion. Just to proof read it. $\endgroup$ – Vincent May 16 '18 at 16:58
  • $\begingroup$ @Vincent... Man! This is a hard house! :-) $\endgroup$ – JBH May 16 '18 at 18:58

  • $\begingroup$ The only real downside to this image (and the other too) it that the text is missing anti-aliasing and looks jagged. $\endgroup$ – Vincent May 19 '18 at 15:17
