WikiFoundry updates - Changes in Advertisements
Today, the platform was rid of two advertising partners, Chitika and Adversal, who host advertisements on the web.

When Travis originally acquired the platform, he placed Google Ads on all the wikis, regardless what content they held. This worked for a good half a year, but then Google caught some websites with content that violated their policy, and shut down their ads on the sites that were found in violation of their policy. As a resolution to this, Travis added Chitika and Adversal.

Any websites created had Chitika and Adversal as the advertisers until the wiki was reviewed to see if it fit Google's guidelines. However, Chiticka and Adversal were starting to become invasive, they messed with formats, and some could be viewed as offensive to some, so they were removed today in favor of some really user-friendly advertisements, made by Travis himself.

These ads show up on wikis that have recently been created, and ones that have not been reviewed for their content. This includes promotion for some of the platform's wikis, as well as promotions for creating a WikiFoundry wiki. Once the wiki has been screened and is found to follow Google's guidelines, the ads will be switched to Google's Ads, and will run on it's normal advertisement rotation.

You can follow Travis' progress on the WikiFoundry Twitter feed and the Facebook page.
If you have specific questions, feel free to email Travis at travis[at]wikifoundry.com

Featured Tip - Upgrade your browsers
Tip provided by: CaptainSpaz
As of November 6, 2013, WikiFoundry now supports the Blink layout engine, meaning Google Chrome, Opera, and Maxthon are now supported. Though, it is only recent versions of these browsers that utilize the Blink engine; older versions still use WebKit.

These browsers are full of features and support that Internet Explorer and Firefox haven't offered us, and you may find you have a better experience on WikiFoundry with one of them.

In any event, upgrading your browsers insure you will be able to keep up with any changes that may occur to the Wiki platform in the coming months or years, thus creating fewer support issues.

For more info, and download links, view the browser support page.
If you have any tips, please message one of the Staff members.
