It's look like sponsorship on tag is expired. So the advertisement is removed. But the space is not removed.

Before few days (or may be till 31st Dec. 2012) the advertisement was like this:

But now it is not showing ad and also the free space is not removed.

PS: I cleared my cache but the space is still there.

That box there is supposed to be filled in by adzerk, but their script doesn't appear to be actually putting anything there. –  animuson Jan 1 '13 at 4:34
    
@Shog the bug (blank space) wasn't fixed. –  Shadow Wizard Feb 12 '13 at 8:18
    
@Sha looks good to me. –  Shogging through the snow Feb 12 '13 at 18:11

@Shog but what if tag sponsorship will expire again? In my opinion real fix would be avoiding such situation in the first place. –  Shadow Wizard Feb 12 '13 at 20:52

Fret not, vigilant user-- the tag sponsorships expired on 12/31 and some were not automatically extended, requiring explicit confirmation from clients that they want to continue sponsoring tags.

They've been updated on our end, and should start serving soon.

Thanks for keeping an eye out!


Edit: live now!

What to do if the sponsorship expires again? Do I need to report it once again (by asking a question)? or Just leave a comment here? –  hims056 Apr 19 '13 at 12:09

@hims056 for this tag, report it here. We now have a tool in place to prevent this from happening in the future, but sometimes things slip through the cracks. In those cases, it really helps a lot when you guys let us know! So: thank you! –  stevvve Apr 19 '13 at 14:37
    
NoSQL tag is not showing anything right now. –  hims056 Apr 20 '13 at 7:52
    
@hims056 are you sure? I'm seeing Neo4j there. –  stevvve Apr 20 '13 at 15:33
    
Actually I was not able to see adv from my PC. But I can see it from my mobile. :) –  hims056 Apr 20 '13 at 15:45
