MANIAPUB, promote your creations !

Post by gou1 » 01 Apr 2010 15:08

You create cars and tracks but the income from those creations just isn't enough? You just designed a breakthrough game mode and want people to know about it? You are recruiting talented drivers for your team and you want to generate traffic on your Manialink? MANIAPUB is the answer to your problems!

MANIAPUB is a new in-game community advertising platform for TrackMania . You will be able to publish your own advertisements on the home page of the game for Coppers. Because images speak volumes, here's how the home page is going to look like starting next week:

Image
  • * Each ad will be displayed for 24 hours on the home page
    * Ad placement is based on auctions (with Coppers)
    * Ads link to a Manialink address (short Manialink, Maniacode, URL, TMTP link)
    * Detailled feedback statistics are given on displayed campaigns
How does-it work?
  • * Go to the Manialink maniapubcolor>
    * Click on "Create campaign"
    * Select a day. Ads are displayed from 10 AM (GMT+1, Paris time) to the day after at 10 AM
    * Make a bid
    * Create an ad or select one you already created. Images can be JPG or DDS, with/height ratio is 4
    * Review your campaign information and pay the transaction
    * When the auction ends, moderators need to validate the winning campaign
    * If you win the auction and your campaign is rejected (due to inappropriate content), you are refunded free of charge
    * If your campaign is validated, it will be published automatically
    * Everyone else is refunded free of charge
Beta

MANIAPUB is in beta version for now: help-us improve the system by reporting in this thread the bugs you encounter.

Have fun! :pil

Just a quick question.

Is it possible to upload a new version of manialib as there are some new features added to it but the zip has never been updated.

with kind regards.

A new version of Manialib should be released in a few weeks, in the meantime, if you are confortable with SVN and undocumented code, you can checkout the latest revision(I suggest to use /trunk/simple-example/ as a starting point).

Hello everyone,

We are today launching a brand new version of Maniapub. The idea behind this was to give a second life to the infamous "Manialink:Home", the home page of the Explorer.

How does it work?
* Each zone has a dedicated page on Manialink:Home
* On each page you'll find 4 banner slots
* You can rent a slot with a daily budget that you choose
* Every day, you'll be automatically debited of that budget in Coppers (thanks to a new direct debit system)
* If someone place a higher bid on your slot, your banner will be replaced within 24 hours

All the banners from Manialink:Home will be randomly displayed on the game's home page.

As soon as tomorow, the current Manialink:Home will be replaced by this new system. You can start creating ads and campaigns right now by going on "Maniapub".

Have fun!
