Open Source Advertising - Sidebar - 1H 2011

It's time once again to support your favorite open source project through our Free Vote-Based Advertising for Open Source Projects. We are clearing the leader boards to start the second half of 2010 anew.

Here is your chance to create a Free Vote-Based Advertisement for an Open Source Project. Create a graphical ad for an open source programming project and post it as an answer to this question (in the right format), and it will feed live remnant ads on Stack Overflow.

Ad Requirements

It must be an advertisement soliciting the participation and contribution of programmers writing actual source code. This is not intended as a general purpose ad for consumer products which just happen to be open source. It's for finding programmers who will help contribute code or other programmery things (documentation, code review, bug fixes, etc).

Your ad should be an original creation which has not previously appeared on Stack Overflow. Please do not resubmit entries that have appeared as ads on Stack Overflow in previous periods.

In order to work, the answers you post to this question must conform to the following rules.

Answer Template

[![Tagline to show on mouseover][1]][2]

  [1]: http://image-url
  [2]: http://clickthrough-url 

Please do not add anything else to the body of the post. If you want to add any commentary, keep it in the comments.

Image requirements

  • The image that you create must be 220px by 220px
  • Can be hosted anywhere (tinypic, twitpic, your blog); we will mirror the image locally when we serve it.
  • Must be GIF or PNG
  • No animated GIFs
  • Absolute limit on file size of 150kb

The output, which ultimately will be served in an ad slot on Stack Overflow, can be previewed by clicking through to this URL:

http://rads.stackoverflow.com/ossads/220x250

There is a minimum score threshold an answer must meet (currently 6) before it will be served up by that URL and shown on Stack Overflow. You can see all the ads that currently make the threshold and meet our criteria on this page:

(by George Edison): I created a nifty little tool you can use to view the ads that have met the criterion already:

Please Note: Entries that have appeared as ads in previous periods are not eligible; however, previous entries that did not meet the minimum score threshold can be resubmitted. –  Robert Cartaino Jun 11 '10 at 15:51

@Oscar Reyes: Possibly. Also covers cases where submissions were received later in the cycle. –  Robert Cartaino Jun 11 '10 at 17:08

If I do a new ad for a project that appeared before, does that work? –  Runscope API Tools Jun 11 '10 at 17:14

@John Sheehan: Absolutely. We're looking for fresh content. We don't want a do-over of the ads from the last round. –  Robert Cartaino Jun 11 '10 at 17:31

As I have no reputation at all here currently, would anyone be willing to post an answer for the I2P Project(geti2p.net) with the community wiki option enabled? –  welterde Jun 16 '10 at 22:20

You can tell from the direction of the splatter that it was hit from above, and the length of the splatter marks indicate it was a blunt object hit with force. The speckles indicate the weapon was thick, and made of wood, this was almost certainly a large stick from an hybrid Sorbus tree. The stick was probably imported from Scotland, yes, definitely Scotland, I can smell it. The attacker probably travelled from Heathrow after travelling down from Glasgow in a white van. The attacker enjoys long walks in park and is partial to some Rose and Quiche in evenings. –  Tom Aug 26 '10 at 8:53

I'd look further into this project if the homepage didn't say "to spead [sic] up your website." –  Stephen Nov 2 '10 at 17:47

@TheLQ: 1) It aims to provide acceleration capabilities eventually, as well as make managing downloads easier. 2) Launchpad is the best place I know for code hosting - regardless of platform. 3) Thanks! –  uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Oct 8 '10 at 5:34

What does it do? Moreover, I can't even tell from a 10s look at their website what it does. #fail –  Mauricio Scheffer Jun 10 '11 at 2:37
