|MetaFilter's site and server can always use upgrades of hardware, software, and bandwidth, as well as more stable funding for continued support of its small but high-skilled moderation and backend team! If you'd like to chip in, you can donate to Metafilter.|
An old text based advertising service of MetaFilter that allowed you to advertise your website, product or whatever on MetaFilter using Text Ads. These were displayed in the top right corner of the front page of MetaFilter, and cost $1 per thousand impressions. There was a minimum purchase of 10,000 impressions for $10. Archive.org has a copy of the page that used to describe the service. Text Ads were replaced by BlogAds in September of 2005, but those are gone now as well.
