Can we see expired Textads? May 21, 2002 7:51 PM   Subscribe

Is there anyway to see a list of expired Textads? If not, can a feature be added to allow us to see a Textad history of what has been posted in the past?

The reason I'm asking is that, a while ago, there was an ad for a hosting site which I was planning on using. Now that I've got the spare $$ to spend, I'd like to use their services. Unfortunately, their ad is no long running, and I have no idea what the URL was...

DreamHost? I remember seeing them as a text ad. There was also that blogger based hosting service. Any specifics you remember about it?

there was also mirahost, which for some reason also caught my attention.

Maybe...the blogger one sounds more familiar. But I was hoping a glance through the textad archives would job my memory.

blogomania or cornerhost? I have no idea if they were textads, though.

Wouldn't a textad archive rather defeat the purpose of the textad concept? Free indefinite advertising...hmm.

rushmc: I don't think the archive of expired text ads would get enough use to discourage people from buying new ads for expired ones. Seems like a good feature to me.

An archive of ads would probably be of more use to members than to advertisers -- who would pay to keep an ad where almost no one will look?

Maybe an aditional fee could be added if you want your ad archived on a separate page. It seems like there should be something extra charged even if it doesn't get cycled through the front page. A one time fee during signup seems reasonable.

I signed up with Webhost after seeing one of their textads. I love 'em.
