We're promoting the Woodworking Q&A site through the DIY community ads. As you can see on the proposal site, when the ad went live at the beginning of September there was a big boost in the number of followers.

At this point, the proposal no longer needs followers, just questions with a score of 10 or more. I've made a new ad that hopefully highlights this need. I was going to replace the original ad with this new one but I hesitated because a) I wasn't sure this ad was better and b) I wasn't sure if that was fair. DIYers that voted on the current version of the ad may not approve of the new version and I felt like I'd we switching it out under their feet.

I should note that I have updated the live ad once, but in that case the message of the ad was the same and I felt the quality was unquestionably better.

So what do you think is the better option,

  1. Try to get 6 votes on the new ad and run them both or
  2. Replace the image of the live ad with the new version

  • Advertising tag added, I'll see if I can find another question or two that matches so the cleanup bots don't remove it.

This question should bring enough attention to the new ad, to get the required votes. You could also post a link in chat, to make sure folks see it. Just don't expect much attention until Monday or Tuesday, when everyone gets back to their jobs.
