I wanted to talk about advertisements (ads) here on Mycotopia. Running Mycotopia is not free, unfortunately. There are many expenses, efforts, and tasks running in the background to keep this community running. Ads keep the machine well oiled. They could introduce you to a new product, a new member to the board, or just an awesome deal you can not pass up. The possibilities are endless. Ads benefit everyone!
Because of this we recommend that you don’t run any ad-blockers on our site. We are not asking you to uninstall but to just whitelist our domain. Soon you will see a funny picture and message display if you are running an ad-blocker. This will be part of a upcoming seamless web change. Many other large websites do this and it has worked well.
I should mention how this benefits Sponsors. There are currently 3 levels of Premium Memberships any member in good standing may purchase. The general idea is the greater their donation the less ads they will see. Less ads will show up throughout the Community until the member reaches Black level. At that time the only ads that will be visible will belong to the Sponsors.
Being a Sponsor means more than extra visibility and traffic. We will send more customers to you! As a Sponsor, your banner will stand out in many ways:
- They will appear on every page.
- They will be seen by every Guest, Member, Premium Member, and Visitor.
- They will be the largest ad space available at 728x90
- There will be side-bar placement and additional locations not available to Advertisers
- Your site and products will be actively promoted as a trusted vendor
And as always if you have any questions please reach out to any staff member
