Do you think it would be a good idea if this forum was providing free ads for bitcoin businesses? This forum is definitely one of the most visited bitcoin sites, and we all here have an interest to not only spread awareness of bitcoins, but also about the lesser known businesses and websites that accept bitcoins.

There is an issue of how to choose which site should get the ad space, but I think there are fair ways to do this. It could be set up like an award and every month a new company or someone who has done something special for bitcoin would get the honor to be featured on the site until the next month. Or we just give the space to someone with a unique idea and needs the exposure. My first thought here is ogrr.com (I'm not affiliated with them in any way). I think they have a great idea but they really seem to need a way to get the word out to people.

This could be a great way to help lesser known businesses or to incentivize people to do something for the sake of community to win the ad space. What do you think?

The forum does have ads.

The fair way to choose ads is by selling ad space. Smiley

Lol, I feel a bit stupid. I even turned off my ad block and looked for ads before posting, but I was looking for banners or the like. I do think there is a lot more value to be gathered here than the current ads though. They're kind of subtle, which goes against the purpose of ads.  Smiley

But considering this thread was started on false premisses there probably isn't that much to discuss here.

Is the purpose of ads to harass visitors and make the site unusable?

I thought the site had ads, but then I realized it where people being clever with their SIGs.

So what does this mean now? If the site has ads then people can't link to their projects anymore? Fuck that.

The reason I don't use Ad Block on here is because the ads are unobtrusive.  The minute the site goes to banner ads or similar, I suspect that many users will block them - to the detriment of the advertisers.

All I can say is that this is Bitcoin. I don't believe it until I see six confirmations.

Exactly. If annoying ads ever appear on this forum, I'll just remove it from my Ad Block exclusion list.
