That gives us something to think about. But it isn’t the same: these ads (down the right margin) encourage us to put full headlines and a small blurb to explain - all of which would be controlled by the person who advertises on Taiwanted
The previous style, with the 4 main category blocks, only showed headlines (advert titles), and, even then, we didn’t control the length/size of the headlines, so the 4 lists were rarely the same length.
Down the side, a long column of Taiwanted ads could mean we have a lot of white space below the list of threads (on the left, above the Sitemap). I am thinking of filling them with something (help guides or faq excerpts, maybe). Plus, we can control - to some extent - how many ads for each list
Placing ads - relevant ads, because different forums will show different Taiwanted ads - in Forumosa is not casual decision. It isn’t just some cool new trick. From my perspective, exposure on Forumosa is one of the key differences Taiwanted will have over Tealit.
