Posting this because I'm slightly annoyed more than anything else.

I reached out to the FTW Collective over on X back in the first week of December, offering them advertising space on the forum, in the form of a banner on the sidebar. For FREE.

It has since been 7 weeks with only a single response the same day I messaged them (December 9), saying they were interested. Since then, crickets and not a response from any of my follow-up messages.

This forum easily averages over 150k page views a month with THOUSANDS of eyes on the site. And this advertisement would have been on EVERY page, ALL the time, and not in rotation.

It is what it is, but it definitely feels "typical Tulane" to me. Maybe one of them will read this and offer a response.

No man, you're good. This is totally unrelated. I saw the event you posted promoted on social media. This is totally separate.

Steve, Michael Arata ask me to give you his phone number and have you call him. I'll DM it to you now.

I'd much rather see a FTW ad than the one currently to my right showing a button-popping stomach advertising a belly-burning pro-biotic!

I see you've got it posted now, but maybe we can improve it some? Its just a logo and the words Fear the Wave Collective. Is there any way to add something like, "click here to learn more about FTW", or "click here to donate"? Just something that lets people know what to do.

Just trying to help.

The graphic they provided wasn’t that great, so I swiped that logo from their site. When I get time, I’ll see if I can improve it. But I do agree, verbiage would be better.
