### What are Community Promotion Ads?

Community Promotion Ads are community-vetted advertisements that will show up on the main site, in the right sidebar. The purpose of this question is the vetting process. Images of the advertisements are provided, and community voting will enable the advertisements to be shown.

### Why do we have Community Promotion Ads?

This is a method for the community to control what gets promoted to visitors on the site. For example, you might promote the following things:

• useful tools or resources for physics research
• interesting articles or findings for the curious
• cool events or conferences
• anything else your community would genuinely be interested in

The goal is for future visitors to find out about the stuff your community deems important. This also serves as a way to promote information and resources that are relevant to your own community's interests, both for those already in the community and those yet to join.

### How does it work?

The answers you post to this question must conform to the following rules, or they will be ignored.

1. All answers should be in the exact form of:

[![Tagline to show on mouseover][1]][2]

[1]: http://image-url
[2]: http://clickthrough-url


Please do not add anything else to the body of the post. If you want to discuss something, do it in the comments.

2. The question must always be tagged with the magic tag.

### Image requirements

• The image that you create must be 220 x 250 pixels
• Must be hosted through our standard image uploader (imgur)
• Must be GIF or PNG
• No animated GIFs
• Absolute limit on file size of 150 KB

### Score Threshold

There is a minimum score threshold an answer must meet (currently 6) before it will be shown on the main site.

You can check out the ads that have met the threshold with basic click stats here.

I guess physicists don't really have a lot to advertise... I've been thinking about it but I didn't come up with any good examples. (Yet) –  David Z Dec 8 '11 at 18:13
You've got a year to think of something. ♪ –  Grace Note Dec 8 '11 at 18:14
I find this question rather confusing. Keep in mind, people are getting redirected here from clicking on the add, and probably thinking "what in the world?" –  AlanSE Jan 26 '12 at 18:56
@Zassoun Thanks for prodding me about that - this is one of many sites where I haven't revised the description to something that actually makes sense. I'll get right to that, let me know if it is any clearer now. –  Grace Note Jan 26 '12 at 19:15
@GraceNote Yes, that addresses it exactly! A nice "about" right there directed to what they were looking for. –  AlanSE Jan 26 '12 at 19:21

I dont know why this is, but looking at this picture for the first time (and from afar) made me hungry :-P ... But now I like it ;-) +1 –  Dilaton Jun 9 '12 at 10:34
@Nemo when RichardT first posted it in our chat room, we all felt that way :P Jelly sandwich! –  Manishearth Jun 9 '12 at 12:09
Ha ha, so Im not the only one :-). It has a good potential to attract new users to Chemistry since it looks like this site offers something to eat ;-) –  Dilaton Jun 9 '12 at 12:18
@nemo cool, new slogan for an ad... "Join chem.SE, we have fooood!" :p Are you planning on joining? Even if you're not too good at chemistry, some nice questions would help us :) –  Manishearth Jun 9 '12 at 12:29
Ill see, my chemistry courses are a bit far away now ... ;-). Tomorrow Ill be off on holidays for three weeks :-P and not sure how often Ill be online then ... Of course, to the Chemistry site should NOT happen what happend to Astronomy and TP for example ... :-/ –  Dilaton Jun 9 '12 at 12:55
Sorry to sound pedantic, but it's Chemistry Stack Exchange with a space in between the two words. Even though the logos may appear to be styled in CamelCase all SE sites (including SO, SF, AU etc.) are spelt out as two words, not one –  Yi Jiang Jun 13 '12 at 12:45
@Yi alright, I'll forward that to Fx –  Manishearth Jun 13 '12 at 13:58
@YiJiang fixed… –  F'x Jun 14 '12 at 10:20
For some background on this image, this is an isosurface representation of the highest occupied molecular orbital of the benzene molecule (C6H6). The electronic structure calculation was performed using the ORCA software of Neese and coworkers, was post-processed in VMD and then rendered in Blender using Cycles. The isosurface meshes are not strictly quantitative as they were Catmull-Clark subdivided and smoothed. Red is wild cherry flavoured and blue is blueberry flavoured. :D –  Richard Terrett Jun 15 '12 at 7:00

Here's the original SVG file‌​, if anyone wants to make a better version. –  Simon Jan 16 '12 at 0:33

Hi! Academia.SE has a nicely growing community discussing all sorts of matters relating to academic life, from grad student to emeritus professor… We think it could be of interest to a good part of the Physics.SE community! –  F'x Oct 26 '12 at 9:25
