General advertising idea for Folding@home
#1
Hey, what do you guys think about a little advertising for the Brony@home team outside of competitions? What should the ad say? How much should be spent on it? Is anyone willing to toss in some money for said advertising?

I was just sitting here thinking about how we need more and new meat for the team. If such a thing is done, the advertisement should link to information on how to actually do it...

is the only place I could find. As a moderator, I cleaned up that post a bit, but without access to windows, I'm not sure if the actual install process is different. Once I get my server, I might even look into cleaning up the website in general (maybe leaving the forums as they are).


Thoughts? Help? I need mental help?

More help is always good :D The ad should say something simple about what we do, maybe we need a catch phrase  Rainbowlaugh

I've actually just got my folding back up and running thanks to a new gpu from PoNyePiC  Pinkiehappy

As for the installation process, I don't think it's changed since that post was made ;)

No need for mental help, just the normal kind in the form of some more hardware and people  Rainbowwild

For the non forum pages feel free to drop some suggestions for layout. If I get some design examples, I should be able to implement them. Most of my laziness regarding fixing those pages stems from a lack of creativity.

Just had a thought, I don't know who runs the b@h twitter account, but it's pretty inactive, it might only be used for big announcements and stuff, but it would be a way to advertise a bit more. There are a couple bots that retweet #brony if I remember correctly, maybe that would help. If you stick any adverts somewhere, you could link the twitter account on that too, for up to date information. Just an idea  Twilightblush

Yeah, I'm not a Twitter fan either, so I rarely use it. Selly has access as well, but he's a lazy shit (and this is coming from a lazy shit). Tiwake, I can always give you access as well.
