Community ads allow a stack exchange site to advertise various community resources on the side bar. For example, we could advertise the reddit community, or the forum funding system. We can also advertise other projects that the monero community thinks are note worthy, such as i2p or the EFF.

Could we enable community ads on this site? (All that needs to be done is for a mod to make a post tagged , and then we submit our ads as answers.)

Okay I started a new community-ads question based on my understanding of the process. People can start posting ad ideas right away!

EDIT: nvm

  • No, you can't do it. Only SE employee (usually CM like Grace Note) can start Community Ads on a site, as it requires special template to be added. (Please delete that "question") Oct 20, 2016 at 11:44
  • @ShadowWizard oh, whoops. Sorry 2quick 4u. Oct 20, 2016 at 11:47
  • @PyRulez No worry. See here for official response about this. Oct 20, 2016 at 11:48

    You miss my point @2quick4u. If users will post answers on the question you started, nothing will happen. There will be no ads, those users will just waste their time. That's why I suggested to delete it, until this will be properly added by SE employee. Oct 20, 2016 at 12:04

    @ShadowWizard thanks for this link which I just read for the first time. Is there any harm in asking the question? It seems like the best way to test community demand for community ads is to allow for their creation and voting. Would that information not be helpful to someone considering whether or not to enable them for beta site?

    @ShadowWizard I wished the blog post or the tag wiki said that. They just said "post ads to questions tagged community-ads to make ads appear", basically. :P Oct 20, 2016 at 12:08

    @2quick4u if you do that, make it clear that it's tentative. Oct 20, 2016 at 12:08

    @2quick4u not sure, it might not be possible to "migrate" the ads created before the ads system is put in place, and all the work will be lost, requiring everyone to post the ads again, and vote again. Better ask Grace Note in a comment or in chat (e.g. TL), and delete the question until you get an answer, in the very least. Oct 20, 2016 at 12:10
  • @ShadowWizard will do thanks
