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.

    @Shog but what if tag sponsorship will expire again? In my opinion real fix would be avoiding such situation in the first place. Commented Feb 12, 2013 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 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!
