Should the Satellite sites run ads?

Is advertising on Blender Satellite sites like and a good or bad idea? It would be a good way to raise some money, but it could also make Blender look more commercialized and there’s the possibility that visitors will repetitively click the ads just to help out, which is considered click-fraud by ad services.

the BF could also set up another community tutorial hosting site, for people who only want to share one thing and need somewhere to put it.

Hmm. Only three votes.

Wait, only?

I voted yes, but only if they use non-political ads.

I voted yes with the same condition.

You mean like campaign ads? Probably not. it would be relevent to 3d graphics with a service like adsense, or perhaps even a paid “sponsored links” list instead of ad units.
