Shall we start a small advertising campaign?

Some Stack Exchange communities vote on “community ads” — banners that link to other resources related to the topic. Highly voted proposals get free ad display time on that community. Here’s an example for an ad for the “Genealogy SE (beta) that’s displayed on the Biology.SE site.

I suggest creating a similar banner for out budding Bioinformatics site and suggesting it on some Stack Exchange sites — for example, Biology, Stats, Chemistry (?) etc. (Unfortunately not all sites have community ads, and in particular Stack Overflow doesn’t.)

For this, we will need:

  • A banner design
  • A tagline (to be displayed on mouseover)

  • $\begingroup$ Yesh! Great idea! I hope someone else can come up with a nice banner. If not, I'll do it but given my complete lack of any talent in that respect, I'd really prefer if someone else could. $\endgroup$ – terdon Aug 4 '17 at 10:29
  • $\begingroup$ Great idea, can you add a ss of that ad? $\endgroup$ – arupgsh Sep 20 '17 at 13:39

    $\begingroup$ Nice idea, I also think anything tagged with 'bioinformatics' on SO could potentially be directed towards here, even if just via a comment $\endgroup$ – Chris_Rands Oct 31 '17 at 9:46
  • $\begingroup$ Unfortunately I’m (a) not a graphic designer, and (b) short of time at the moment (too many projects at once). Unfortunately it doesn’t seem as if anybody else is up for creating a banner. $\endgroup$ – Konrad Rudolph Oct 31 '17 at 10:03
