As it has been already discussed here, promotion of the beta site is not only allowed, it is much welcome in the community.

In order to be able to successfully promote the site we need good materials. Here are some examples of what I would appreciate much to have online or available for download:

  1. One page summary with the goals, the do's and dont's of the site, including the clear statement what kind of questions are welcome and what might be off-topic for this site (clear medical questions etc.).

  2. One graphical or text-based banner with a link to the page and some appealing motto or slogan.

  3. A4 print-friendly version of the flyer, best if foldable, containing the same information as in the first point with all links and probably some interesting sample questions with answers á la "Did you know?" etc (if appropriate).

The original text needs to be written or at least corrected by a native speaker of English. Translations to other mainstream languages are welcome, I promise to translate all materials into German and Russian.

Now, the questions: 1. Do you support this idea? 2. Do you have other ideas concerning the materials we might need or produce? 3. Anybody volunteering for writing the original texts/banners/flyer and for translations in other languages?

  • $\begingroup$ More than happy to do the English proofing and produce a few banners if I'm given a clear brief =) $\endgroup$

All very very rough, we really need to decide on proper wording for the tag-line. Does anyone know for sure the position with using "Stack Exchange" in promo materials? I'm assuming it's okay =S

  • $\begingroup$ No problem, they're really rough and I'd welcome feedback from everyone so we can get more polished ones worked out =D $\endgroup$
