What is Sponsorship?
In order to raise some funds to support growth of the directory, we are considering taking "sponsors" for categories. What this means is that interested parties could make a donation and we would list them as a sponsor on an appropriate category. This is something of a hybrid between the pure donation support of Wikipedia, and the traditional selling of advertisements.
What we'd like to do is get someone having a website in a category, to sponsor that category, and we would say "thank you" by putting a small blurb and link back to the sponsoring website. Sort of like selling text links, but in a more context sensitive, and less structured way.
To Sponsor a category now, go to the sponsorship sign-up page.
