What is being auctioned? Why?
Non intrusive ad space in my setup guides is being publicly auctioned. This has prior approval from Theymos.

I work for the community full time and am not funded by the community or any company. Donations have not exceeded $50 in total this year and so I have to find a way to keep the guides sustainable and FREE for the average consumer. Selling ad space is one such trial.


Ad Format

  • Leaderboard style (728x90 pixels), static images (jpg, jpeg, gif, png), non annoying colors
  • As images within text, these ads are not affected by ad block by image. I will use a goo.gl address to prevent url blocking and provide public stats.
  • Ads may not misrepresent, lie, be inappropriate, be (or link to) NSFW content.
  • I reserve the right to reject ads for other reasons or remove ads even after they have been accepted.

  • There are 5 ad slots for sale. One slot will be placed after sections 2, 4 and 6 in all the guides listed at the bottom of the post. Shorter guides may not have a slot 6.
  • I will randomise which ad is placed in which slot so each slot receives the same traffic in each slot.
  • The ads last at least 7 days starting from when they are put up. Traffic is expected to be 12,500 impressions per slot over the period.
  • This traffic is exceptionally targeted to the hardware subforum, and more specifically to those who have either bought or are looking to buy miners.


Auction Format

- Auction will run for approximately 6 days, to end at midnight London time on Friday 18th July / 3PM PDT Friday 18th July / 6PM EDT Friday 18th July.
- Post your bids in this thread. Prices must be started in BTC per slot. You must state the max number of slots you want.
- The notation "2 @ 5" means 2 slots for BTC 5 each. Not 2 slots for 5 BTC total.
- The bidding starts at BTC 0.10.
- All bid prices must be evenly divisible by BTC 0.02.
- If two people bid at the same price, the person who bid first will have his slots filled first.

I reserve the right to reject bids, even days after the bid is made. In particular, bids from people with less than 15 activity points are likely to be rejected. I recommend not getting into a bidding war with someone who has less than 15 activity points, as their bids might not be accepted, but your latest bids will still stand. If you need to know right away whether someone's bids will be accepted, PM me.

You must pay for your slots within 24 hours of receiving the payment address. Otherwise your slots may be sold to someone else. I will send you the payment information via forum PM from this account ("dogie", user ID 87869). You might receive false payment information from scammers pretending to be me. They might even have somewhat similar usernames. Be careful.

tldr for getting started:
  • Starting bid is BTC 0.10 per slot
  • 5 slots being sold
  • Bid using slots @ price each notation (3 @ 0.10 means 3 slots @ BTC 0.10 each)

Additional notes for this round:
  • Number of ad slots remains at 5 to allow more people to participate.
  • Expected impressions per slot are back to 12,500, up from 10,000. All guides on dogiecoin.com will also be included in this round.
  • I may impose a max slots per person during the auction (likely 3).

bobsag3: 3 @ 0.20

About 41 hours left, this is a really short auction to get the auction ahead of when the ads need to roll over. Will make the changes more seemless. Future auctions will be back to 7 days.
