if trees could speak

hallo! guten tag!

I know I haven't updated in some time, I've been visiting the fatherland. I'm not back yet but I figured I'd pop in for a little contest.

Some promotional company asked me to do a promotion for the new Borat movie, and while I profit nothing and the prizes are lame, I figured it might cause a spurt of creativity.

More inside.


Some junk the promotional company sent me:


Borat Conan Interview - WMV  - part 2
Borat Conan Interview - Quicktime  - part 2
Badly resized copy of the soundtrack cover


Use this stuff or find whatever you want. The basic rules:
1. put borat in the keywords
2. make it somewhat relevant
3. contest ends on sunday the 12th.
4. i am the only judge (aka funny police)


lame prizes:

1 "Grand Prize": 1 Borat soundtrack and 1 poster
2 "You fail prizes": 1 Borat poster and sticker

When I have some more time I'll set up an easy listing of Borat sites.


Now, to address something else entirely, ads. I know you guys have been getting raped by all the ads lately, especially the popups. To clear things up, every time YTMND shows a pop-up, I die a little. AdSense revenue has been slipping for months so I've finally dropped it all together for the time being. In the next few weeks you will be seeing a lot of changes to how the site is organized, mainly to benefit the advertising. Pop-ups can't be a long term solution for YTMND's lack of revenue, so I'm working on a few things to try to avoid them. They pay more than any other ads and they lower traffic, so it's sort of a double whammy. If you have a family member or friend in media buying or internet advertising, tell them about YTMND and to drop me a line at max@ytmnd.com.

More (and better) updates soon.

Cheers from Germany

-Max

I don't know if this has been suggested before, but what about little ads in the preloaders? The time is basically "dead air" anyway, may as well turn it into something to help pay for the YTMND it's preparing to show. Also you say "you will be seeing a lot of changes to how the site is organized, mainly to benefit the advertising", does this mean you're considering tightening the restrictions on the content of YTMNDs (censoring) so that more companies would be willing to advertise on this site?

I wouldn't terribly mind ads if they were more relevant to my interests and the interests of YTMND users in general. If I go to a music site like Pitchfork or Punknews, the ads are relevant and sometimes even useful, leading me to bands/sites/products I may even spend money on. Right now on YTMND all I see are lowest-common-denominator dating service ads and scam contest trash. If you could get some ads for things YTMND users find interesting (movies, video games, music, etc.) we'd all be happier.

i loved the borat movie. but if there are more than 5 entries, they're getting a hell of a lot more than what they're putting into this. i think if there's a good entry, they turn it into an actual ad. maybe they should donate to the site, or did they already?

P.S. Ads don't really bother me as long as YTMND is getting some moneys. YTMND could always use money. P.P.S Have fun in Germany P.P.S Don't get too drunk.
