The ads are looking a little wonky today:

Seems like the image has a fixed width:

<img src="https://i.sstatic.net/gDqLU.png" alt="Chat with fellow site members" title="Chat with fellow site members" width="220" height="250">
  • Oddly, this is a 2015 ad. None of our 2016 ads have crossed the 6 point threshold. Perhaps that's related? Our site is stuck in 2015

The wider sidebar rollout has had some bumps and snags. As a result, the 2016 commmunity promotion ads aren't live yet.

I've been holding off on the official activation of the new threads since people haven't had much time to design new ads to accommodate the new width (and also to look into some changes on the new filesize limits). This, though, slightly undermines that so let's see if we can do something about that. – Grace Note♦ Jan 18 at 15:31
I'm thinking [2016 ads will be activated] mid or late February at the moment. It'll depend a lot on how much new submissions we get. – Grace Note♦ Jan 18 at 15:35
