    BG Ads Madness 2014 - It's Over.

    Good guy BG is gonna go ad-less for some time in March. Instead of simply removing them we'll allow anyone on BG to promote their own site, channel, stream, webcomic, blog, community site or whatever for free.

    Q: Who can participate?
    A: Anyone that has a BG account but we might reject submissions from people with low post count, recently joined or any reason we want.

    Q: What ad format do you accept?
    A: Anything that can fit in your BG Bucket should work but it must have a size of 728x90. Similar to:



    Q: How do I submit my ad?
    A: Send a private message to Ragns containing a link to your banner image and the link to your site.

    Q: What is allowed / refused?
    A: Sites you own should most likely be accepted. Gimmicks, scams, trolls, RMT and adults sites should most likely be refused.

    Q: Why?
    A: For the lulz.

    You can discuss, comment or ask questions below.

    Any deadline for this? I've been working on a personal opinions/gaming/guide site but it's not live yet.

    lol I'm so geeked to see my banner on BG. Thank you once again! It was a rushjob since my PC didn't have photoshop installed, so I did it on the online editor. Just got into the whole niche website business, so feel free to PM me if you think it does/doesn't suck dicks.

    Although, I hit the front page of Reddit on my Green Smoothie guide, so I know I'm getting there :D

    Nice, first one i noticed:


    I feel like if you're going to advertise japanese support, you should at least know that the japanese language is 日本語, instead of just google translating.

    My website had to get wiped and wordpress reinstalled due to incompetent host(I don't own the hosting, dumb mistake on my part). Just a heads-up for anyone who clicks my banner and sees a blank page. Pretty bummed at having to rebuild from scratch.

    Reminder that people can still submit their own ads as long as these are still up.

    Is there any way to see all the ads people submitted? I'm actually interested to see what people came up without having to keep refreshing a page to see all the different combinations of ads lol

    So, I saved all my webpages onto my computer and signed up for free hosting at 000webhost. Probably gonna be 2 more days until my site is back up lol I've learned so much web crap that I knew jack about a month ago(and was pretty intimidated about), so it's not all bad.
