You lost your “beta” label in 2019, so welcome to your very first edition of Community Promotion Ads, for the year of 2020!

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:

  • relevant linguistic blogs and websites
  • events, conferences, or meetups for Spanish language scholarship
  • 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 300 x 250 pixels, or double that if high DPI.
  • 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 (2px if high DPI) surrounding it.

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.

    I suggest lowering the score threshold to 5 or even 4 if you want any ad to be shown on the main site, as our Meta site does not have a lot of visitors... – Charlie Mar 9 at 8:39

    This makes more sense on SO's open source ads, and seems a bit tangential on Spanish Language, no? :) – JNat Mar 9 at 16:30
  • @JNat the idea of Codidact applies to all possible SE-sites – fedorqui 'SO stop harming' Mar 9 at 17:55

    I don't know what to make of the 3 downvotes and not much feedback or explanations have been given. Also, there is a thought on my head that I can't completely verbalize or understand, but links this disgust with Codiact.org with the lack of response to the pleas to engage the community in the moderator elections. Every time that I try to figure out what my subconscious it trying to tell me about the whole thing another part of my brain just says "you are thinking too much about it. It's none of your business anymore". So I'll let it be. – Diego Mar 16 at 17:58
