Since the beginning of the year I have not once seen a community-ads ad displayed on any SE site, including SO (yes I'm aware goofs happened). I know the ads are served somewhat randomly (looks random anyway), but in previous years I could F5/reload a page 10 times and get a community ad at least once. Now I don't even know how many times I tried, and not once have I seen any of the community ads on SO or Code Review... or any of the sites with paid ads.
Ads that do get served:
- Paid ads (Microsoft, IBM, etc.)
- SO Jobs ads
- SE network / "Recent Hot Question from some SE site" ads
Either something is broken, or I'm very, very, very unlucky.
I can see that ads appear to get clicks, but knowing that a click on the ad post counts as a click on the ad, I can't tell if these clicks come from the meta post or if they're actual clicks.
Are community ads broken?
(If not, then why am I not seeing them?)
