From what I can read, and the people I talked to, I think we can manage to get a great deal for 4 weeks, IF we get all the pixels filled up. But right now, One week maybe 2-3 days is the goal, depending on how things develop.

Damn! For some odd reason I was under the impression that the ad would stay up much longer than that. Not a deal breaker for me, and will continue to support you, but damn!

Yes it is hard to imagine how some cheap plastics slapped on a bus would cost that much. But they probably know it is an great advertising method and therefore the price.

Seems like a good opportunity to do some bitcoin advertising.

Just seems like a good idea to make a lot of money with yet another of these "1,000,000 pixels" sites.    The finished bus will be an absolute mess, with random text strewn all over it and almost impossible to read.

If you wanted to do some good, raise some money and print ONE big sign on the bus just advertising Bitcoin in general.

I'm sure that upon further discussion, this issue could be resolved to most everyone's satisfaction.

On a not-so-off-side note, did we miss the bus on the following or can a new adventure be started from scratch? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEfDF4_JfdQ

I took both of your suggestions, and made one big bitcoin ad.

฿0 out of ฿691.20 for one big bitcoin ad on the back right side of the bus -> 1MjyWLY1Rvx7rtqKwymA6Mo1gXF1UaFB8G

And on that remark, here is another example.


This example has just one big advertisement, not hundreds of small ones. There is no comparison between your project and the above bus.

Maybe you should consider just making  one large advertisement, on one side of the bus only?

I hope Im not being argumentative here, but I would propose only advertising on the right hand side of the bus. That will enable you to advertise on two buses for the same cost.

The right hand side of the bus, has more visibility to people standing at a bus stop. Many people play with their phones while waiting at bus stops. The bus arrives at the stop and takes on passengers. All the other people standing at the bus stop will have the advertisement right in their faces. They can see the ad, scan the QR code and browse directly to the advertised site.

Indeed the right hand side of the bus is probably the best place, that's why I placed the "pitch in" ad there.

I've just transferred 3.456 BTC (0.5%) of the required amount. Now we just need 199 more donators  Roll Eyes

In the event that not enough people chip in, feel free to transfer the money back to the sending address (1Fv6HW...) :-)

These buses look really cool. I might consider buying some pixels.  Grin

Excellent idea! it's a bit like the 1 million pixel page someone did a while back.

It was a cunning plan to have the funny man be the money fan of the punning clan.

I am in awe of the great response this idea gave.

FYI I added PayPal and Laybit as possible donation methods for the Big Bitcoin Ad.

We still need your help to make this happen.

Kris, you _could_ have edited those terms that you copied from other site. I guess no paint in a bus can be animated Grin

I think it would be better to gather bitcoins to buy several bigger btc-related ads/images to be printed on a bus rather than 1000s of small ads that nobody can read. A big "BITCOIN"-text on a side of a bus for example. And everyone pays a little bit of the ad and you could see progress somewhere etc.

I edited this
Images must NOT be animated (imagine how messy the homepage would look)

To this
Images cannot be animated (it is just not possible yet on a bus)

 Grin

No animated advertising for buses you say?

For Bitcoin to be a true global currency the value of BTC needs always to rise.
If BTC became the global currency & money supply = 100 Trillion then ⊅1.00 BTC = $4,761,904.76.

I hope anyone uploading graphics is uploading properly formated CMYK, fully vector images (.eps or .ai). Anyone uploading raster jpegs and tiffs and gifs will be sorely disappointed in the result!  And if you don't know what vector means, you shouldn't be uploading artwork for publishing Smiley

Remember to upload your images in high resolution, while keeping the aspect ratio. Will look so much better once I purchase the wrap.

You just said it better.

The images should NOT be "high resolution"... they shouldn't have a resolution, because that means they're rasterized Smiley Vector images do not have a resolution or pixel count.
