Upgrade Complete! (And new advertising information.)

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Upgrade Complete! (And new advertising information.)

Post by OrangeDragon » Mon Jul 28, 2014 10:51 pm

I'm really surprised, but according to this it seems we've already propagated our new address in most places. That means all of you are now using the newer server. With a new server, comes new costs, so our wave of free advertising will be coming to an end (as all good things must). We have special arrangements with some individuals for reciprocal links and banner ads, so if you're one of those don't worry... we haven't forgotten. The others will be receiving emails to notify them of the changes and with some special "early adopter" discount offers... so if you're already an advertiser be on the lookout, our way of saying thank you for giving us a chance!

The new rates will be effective September 1st to give all of our current advertisers time to plan. And from now until then we will not be taking on any new free advertisements.


Our advertising rates are now posted for all to see, as well as an explanation of how the ranking system works:

Seems a very fair and natural development on such a popular forum

Great ad structure and policy! Especially commend the possibility for advertisers to monitor the traffic on their ads.

Good job, OD, GM.

Digg3r, how is that bait and switch? Everybody and all advertisers knew that the ad space would be free for a limited time only.

Yeah, we notified all of them that we would be running ads free for a while, but only while we built up the member base/etc. I'd say we reached that point. We even had people contacting us WANTING to buy ad space and told them "nah... we're doing it for free right now just send us your ad."
