I'm going to give a try at selling banner space on the ranch. We're run a banner or two in the past. But it was rare and we charged about 3% of the going rate.
We're still charging less than the going rate, but we're new at this ...
The big thing is, if you know of somebody that might be in a position to buy banner space here, I hope you'll point out our rates page.
I do want to keep the banners topical. I don't want any life insurance, X10, or "punch the monkey" stuff. Java, database, OO stuff is good.
I hope you guys won't be pissed that I'm "selling out" - I always thought it would be good to run these kinds of banners and that it wouldn't be selling out as long as I'm keeping it topical.
We've been talking at length in the "Moderators Only" forum about what we would do if we have some cash on hand. So this money could actually go to some improvements around here.
Speaking of improvements. We have a new home page in the hopper. Should be up next week. Same for a new "new user registration" page - this one should force compliance with our naming policy.
Comments?

Perhaps if you let the folks KNOW where the rates page is - they could pass it on easier .

I'm not sure I can remember that complex URL, Paul. Couldn't you streamline it a bit?
 
Yeah. What he said. Totally. Wait. What? Sorry, I was looking at this tiny ad:
