I'm wondering what URL are we supposed to be using for the Community Promotion ads? All my ads, and others' as well, were unilaterally deleted with a message from Gilles stating "It is useless to advertise SFF on the site itself". Which, of course it would be. WHAT URL ARE WE SUPPOSED TO BE USING IN THE CODE OF THE ADS?
In the original Community Promotion Ads post it says Community Promotion Ads are community-vetted advertisements that will show up on the main site, in the right sidebar.
Does this mean the main site StackExchange.com or SciFi.stackexchange.com.
- Where exactly are these ads to be placed?
- WHAT URL ARE WE TO USE?
- Would it be possible to receive an explanation such as "Cool ad, but you've got the wrong URL. The URL you need to be using for the clickthrough is "blahblahblah.blah.com"" and time to make a correction before an auto delete?
- Could "Main site" be clarified?
I would appreciate some guidance here because I had the same problem with the blog advertisements. An explanation of the clickthrough URL was never forthcoming.
I will say that when I did a community advertisement last year, in 2011, and it was voted up, it appeared on the MAIN site: StackExchange.com with a link to SciFi.stackexchange.com.
