The Renaissance Banner Network is a free way to promote
your renaissance related website on other renaissance related websites.
To participate you will need a 468x60 graphical banner (.gif
or .jpg format, 20K or smaller in file size). Upon registration,
you will receive some HTML code to place on your website. This code
will display a random banner from another member on your page. For
every banner displayed on your site, you earn a display credit.
Display credits are used to determine how often your banner is shown
on other sites.
We currently use a "1:1" ratio: for every one banner
your site displays, you earn one display on another site.
If your site is currently not getting many visitors, it will be
difficult for you to earn display credits. To help you out (and
help us out), you can sponsor this site with a small donation. Those
who donate will be given free exposures without needing to earn
display credits. Please contact
us if you would like more details.
To make things fair for everyone, we have a few rules:
Your website must be renaissance themed or provide a service
of interest to the renaissance community.
Some examples of acceptable sites include: Renaissance fesitvals,
merchants, performance troupes, SCA, and guilds. Under no circumstances
will non-renaissance related banners be allowed. (If you run
a gambling site, don't even bother signing up. You won't get in.
Please stop trying.)
You must agree to place the banner code on only one page
in your site.
To earn you the most exposures, it should be a page that gets
visitors placing the banner on a rarely visited "links"
page won't help you out much. To get accepted, make sure the
banner is actually on the page that your banner link code redirects
You will not modify or alter the provided HTML code.
It displays a 468x60 graphic and our credit logo below it.
You must leave them both in, else we don't get any publicity for
running this site. (That's all we get out of offering this free
The software has a "cheater log" that flags any
account that appears to be doing things like reloading pages over
and over again. If you need extra exposures to promote your site,
please contact us and we will help you get them without cheating.
