Default Is there a place to advertise on daemonforums?

Hi guys,

I was wondering if there's any place on daemonforums.org that I could advertise stuff such as: looking for BSD administrators, offering jobs, information about web hosting services, etc?

In no way I would want daemonforums to become infested with spam advertises like the bsdforums, but I was wondering if it would be appropriate to just have a place where people could offer computer related jobs or services.

Please let me know about this.

Cheers!

http://www.bsdjobs.net/ was advertised on bsdtalk once upon a time, not sure how utilized it is.

These forums don't have a section, but, perhaps it could be considered...

Thanks for the reply BSDFan!

Now do you know of any places, that I can post web hosting offers for freeBSD servers, etc?

Cheers!

There's a freebsd-jobs mailing list where you can post these kinds of things, if they are freebsd-specific. And I believe there's a jobs section to the website, as well.

Not sure about a general BSD jobs/adverts area, though. You'd probably have to send *BSD-specific ones to each BSD group.

What exactly do you want to post? Commercial advertisments? 100 Job offers? A job offer for a small company?

I would like to post commercial advertisements such as freeBSD dedicated servers, web hosting services, etc.

I can't say I'm for that... a jobs forum would be alright, but advertisements like "100% dedicated FreeBSD servers for 99.95, not 99.99.. 99.95!!!".

Count me out...

How about a modest banner advertisement to help cover costs? If it is not too overwhelming, I'd favor something that can ensure the forum's longevity.

I do not have anything against a banner on the right side of daemonforums logo at the top of the page, also total bottom of the page can be used.
