profile for Annonomus Person on Stack Exchange, a network of free, community-driven Q&A sites

I am a self-taught hobbyist who loves learning new skills and inferencing my Arduino to anything I can get my hands on.

I participated in the first Arduino.SE Area51 site launch, which failed. I got to 800 reputation there. I am now on the second Arduino site and am part of the Pro Team ♦.

I didn't want to sign up at first for an account, that's why I put "Anonymous Person" in the text box with "your name." I did end up signing up, but with a quick search I found out there were others with the same spelling, so I modified it to make me unique. I am a extreme grammar "freak," but I prefer uniqueness over a few letters spelled correctly. I couldn't think of a better name. Tip: I don't really have a vivid imagination. :)

No Arduinos hurt in the making of this profile.

comment How do you give your user options without overloading them?
You should add a check box for Always do this. Also you should have a Skip all instead of cancel: From experience, Users almost always don't read the dialog and click either yes or cancel. It makes them read and understand it before they click, but in certain situations, you want to keep it as simple as possible.

Oh sorry... I thought you meant to do that with a program like Google Adsense. Now I see what you're saying. I never thought about advertising in newsletters, not spam but "Here's a new article. I made this using this part from RadioShack" if I was doing a blog about electronics.

I forgot about affiliate programs-this would work nicely with some sites that I am building. What do you mean about having the users pick ads? Thanks

+1 for "Squarish Ads"- this is a great idea!

Good point about the "Still" idea. Do sites like Google Adsense allow you to only have non-animated gifs? Also, do animations pay more? Thanks.

comment Labeling an advertisement
Just to point this out: I'm pretty sure that you don't have to label an advertisement if you put it in the disclaimer/etc. Don't use me as a reliable source but I think I heard that somewhere. To move on, @JoJo you should ask your management why you need it. If a customer complained, then it's best to make them stick out. If it's for legal issues, you probably can just write "Advertisement" and have an ">" pointing to the ad anywhere around it in a different font/text size/bold than the text around it, but don't make it stand out. I would get it approved whatever route you take. Good Luck.
