In order to collect more money for the creation of good forum software and for other useful purposes, the forum is selling ad space in the area beneath the first post of every topic page.

Ads are allowed to contain any non-annoying HTML/CSS style. No images, JavaScript, or animation (no marquee or blinking). Ads must appear 3 or fewer lines tall in my browser. Ads will be prefixed with "Advertisement:". Ad text may not contain lies, misrepresentation, or inappropriate language. Ads may not link directly to any NSFW page. Ads may be rejected for other reasons.

There are 10 total ad slots which are randomly rotated. So one ad slot has a one in ten chance of appearing. Seven of the slots are for sale here. Ads appear only on topic pages with more than one post, and only for people using the default theme.

The ad lasts at least 7 days starting from when I put it up. (However, if you look at the ad history you'll see that ads frequently get 1-2 extra days, but this is random and definitely not guaranteed.)

Stats

Exact historical impression counts per slot:

Info about the current ad slots:

Ad blocking

Hero members, Donators, VIPs, and moderators have the ability to disable ads. I don't expect many people to use this option. These people don't increase the impression counts for your ads.

I try to bypass Adblock Plus filters as much as possible, though this is not guaranteed. It is difficult or impossible for ABP filters to block the ad space itself without blocking posts. However, filters can match against the URLs in your links, your CSS classes and style attributes, and the HTML structure of your ads.

To prevent matches against URLs: I have some JavaScript which fixes links blocked by ABP. You must tell me if you want this for your ads. When someone with ABP and JavaScript enabled views your ads, your links are changed to a special randomized bitcointalk.org URL which redirects to your site when visited. People without ABP are unaffected, even if they don't have JavaScript enabled. The downsides are:
- ABP users will see the redirection link when they hover over the link, even if they disable ABP for the forum.
- Getting referral stats might become even more difficult.
- Some users might get a warning when redirecting from https to http.

To prevent matching on CSS classes/styles: Don't use inline CSS. I can give your ad a CSS class that is randomized on each pageload, but you must request this.

To prevent matching against your HTML structure: Use only one <a> and no other tags if possible. If your ads get blocked because of matching done on something inside of your ad, you are responsible for noticing this and giving me new ad HTML.

Auction rules

Post your bids in this thread. Prices must be stated in BTC per slot. You must state the max number of slots you want. When the auction ends, the highest bidders will have their slots filled until all seven slots are filled.

So if someone bids for 7 slots @ 5 BTC and this is the highest bid, then he'll get all 7 slots. If the two highest bids are 7 slots @ 4 BTC and 1 slot @ 5 BTC, then the first person will get 6 slots and the second person will get 1 slot.

The notation "2 @ 5" means 2 slots for 5 BTC each. Not 2 slots for 5 BTC total.

- When you post a bid, the bids in your previous posts are considered to be automatically canceled. You can put multiple bids in one post, however.
- All bid prices must be evenly divisible by 0.25.
- The bidding starts at 0.50.
- I will end the auction at an arbitrary time no more than 12 days from now. (I will probably end the auction 1-3 days before the ads are scheduled to go up.)
- If two people bid at the same price, the person who bid first will have his slots filled first.
- Bids are considered invalid and will be ignored if they do not specify both a price and a max quantity, or if they could not possibly win any slots

If these rules are confusing, look at some of the past forum ad auctions to see how it's done. I also post periodic status updates which should help make things clear.

You must pay for your slots within 24 hours of receiving the payment address. Otherwise your slots may be sold to someone else.

SMF translates all special characters into HTML entities and all newlines into <br />s before inserting text into the database. This is maybe more efficient, though I probably wouldn't have done it this way.

Just about every other website I log into has a separate login page. (I actually avoid logging into web-forums)

There is a separate login page:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=login

There's a link to this page above the login button.

There is a mobile stylesheet. Shrink your browser window to see it. Suggested improvements are welcome.

There's a 65535-byte limit. Characters not in [a-zA-Z ] require ~6 bytes with SMF's encoding, including newlines.

There should be some sort of warning if you trigger this.

Why do you login in that way?
1169  Economy / Auctions / Re: Advertise on this forum - Round 90 on: July 24, 2013, 05:39:32 AM
I will be away or extremely busy for several days, so it's possible that this auction could last longer than normal, and the ads might not go up until Monday or Tuesday.

You make one post on the fifth day of the month.
You also post every day for the second and third weeks.
You make one post on the 23rd day of the month.

The whole month would count because you posted at least once in both 14-day periods. Your maximum activity would be 28. (Assuming the start of the month is also the start of a 14-day period.)

Quote
I.e. you're registered for 1 month and you've posted 300 posts but all of those posts were made on the first and twelfth day so only 2 days count toward your 14 days.

The whole 14-day period would count. Your maximum activity would be 14.

1178  Other / Meta / Re: Shouldn't a warning about the feature of account selling be posted here? on: July 18, 2013, 01:01:39 AM
Exactly.  Banning BTCTalkAccounts will not be the end of account selling.  Discourage it, flat out ban users suspected of trading or using sold accounts, but if people want aged accounts, they'll get them, for whatever purpose they want.  An account is not a hard identity, it is simply a username and a password, and we would all be wiser to remember this.

Right. A ban on account trading would be only a slight inconvenience to account traders, but it would be a reduction in freedom and it would create a false sense of security. I'd prefer people to always be on guard and assume that every account may be sold/compromised at any time.
1179  Other / Beginners & Help / Re: how to get rid of one-post every 6 mins limitation? on: July 18, 2013, 12:09:01 AM
It's reduced to ~60 seconds after you meet both of the following conditions:
- You have 16 posts.
- The time since your first post is greater than 14 days.

At the time of this writing, logging in counts as a "post". I will fix this.
1180  Economy / Auctions / Re: Advertise on this forum - Round 89 on: July 17, 2013, 04:14:43 PM
No, kslaughter has 7 slots at 8.25 Bitcoins (BTC) per slot.

Right.

If anyone thinks that kslaughter won't pay, you can bid a lower amount. If kslaughter doesn't pay, I will probably ask the remaining highest bidders if they're interested in the slots.

May I suggest a new bidding system to theymos:

I'm planning to create a similar automated system in the future.
