On Stack Exchange sites, there is the practice of “community ads”, which are basically small banners in the sidebar describing tools or whatever that may be of use to the community. I wonder if the PhysicsOverflow community would welcome a similar feature on PhysicsOverflow? Note that the ads are not for money, and the only purpose of community ads is to tell the community about tools that they might find useful.
These ads would be decided completely by the community, through a thread where members of the community can propose the advertisements and vote on the proposed advertisements. Just to get an idea of what these community ads could be for, it would make sense to have community ads for
- The nLab
- Arnold Neumaier's Theoretical Physics FAQ
- The Reference Frame
- ViXrA (?)
Basically, it should be of interest to the PhysicsOverflow community.
Note: This is not the community ads proposal thread, this is just a poll question asking the community if they would like to have such a feature.
