I realize beta sites don't have ads on the site, but I'd like to put one for the site on rotation at https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/ (they are being renewed for the year now).

If not and someone wants to whip something up, please do -- leave a comment if you need a bit of time, otherwise tomorrow I will. Technically, the ads can be replaced after posting although that may be limited by when it crosses the upvote threshold.

The meta thread on RPi.SE is here: https://raspberrypi.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/893/community-promotion-ads-2017 For those that aren't familiar with this, Stack Exchange does it annually for all graduated sites. The ads appear in the side bar and have a target link (which would be Arduino.SE).

  • Where would it go? I went to the Pi site and didn't see any ads. – Nick Gammon Feb 2 '17 at 21:18
  • You're not the only one -- never something I've looked into. Anyway, it's in the sidebar right above "Hot Network Questions". – goldilocks Feb 2 '17 at 21:21
  • I had to disable Adblock, and various trackers to see it. – Nick Gammon Feb 2 '17 at 21:37
  • Yeah there's google driven ads in there; sometime last year they started doing it on selected sites for all users regardless of rep (I believe there's a top bar one everywhere for the new-ish). We were so blessed because we have a lot of page views... – goldilocks Feb 2 '17 at 21:40

Here, I widened your graphic a bit:

I found one over on Electrical Engineering done last year by Camil Staps:

The new criteria require it be 300x250, though:

  • Yuk, it needs to be re-done. :) – Nick Gammon Feb 2 '17 at 21:37

    @NickGammon Padding instead of stretching seems an improvement. – goldilocks Feb 2 '17 at 22:26
  • Yes but it looks a bit, er, bold. It should be possible to redo it easily enough. – Nick Gammon Feb 2 '17 at 23:36
