I totally agree, I'm just not sure that giving ads as rewards for
donations is the way to go. It's not a huge incentive to donate, and if
we're going down the text ads route, I'd rather just sell them. I reckon
we could sell rather a lot of them. We're a large community, and if
buying ads was open to the public as well, your potential buying
audience is very large indeed.

And, I think that selling text ads to whomever would like to purchase
them, barring inappropriate content, is actually as impartial as we can
be. Plus, it would be more inclusive for the community since you don't
have to hit a certain donation level to qualify.
