Ads handled by Ad Engadge will be the cheapest short term ad solution in US dollars, since these ads are by days, weeks, etc. they'll be approved without any written proposal. However staff can reject ads based on content or questionable services.
For a limited time ad space starts at €20/yr.
Ad space is priced in Euros, why you may ask? 50+% of the traffic is from Europe and many requests were in Euros or GBP so the decision was to scrap USD pricing. With the reworked pricing we understand interested Americans & Canadians will notice the pricing has increased due to the exchange rate. To help with this issue, we'll try our best to offer a reasonable 3-6 month bundle or yearly rate.
Our featured offers & requirements:
- Main site/featured sections: Text or button sized ads (up to 107x66) are €20/yr or €2/month.
- Blogs: Banners on our banner network start at €1/month or non-rotated €2/month, ads on blogs are opt-in by community members, at the moment 5 users have opted-in.

Requirements: All businesses interested in 1yr ads placement must write a proposal to how it'll benefit or target our visitor base. Content of person/business site shouldn't exceed PG-13, if content violates this requirement an email will request changes or refund of remaining rate. Ad space is non-transferable/resellable, rare events such as mergers will be allowed transfer of ad space or refund based on remaining rate.
Sitewide ads will require a proposal and if accepted, future extensions will be very flexible. City of Sims wants to limit the number of ads sold under this because our goal is to support a project, community of fans and maintain a reasonablely supported site.
