The past couple of years I've included some advertisements in TinTin++ and for 2014 I'd like to explore the option of player sponsorships.

First I'll explain my motivation for doing this:

I work on tt++ because I enjoy doing so, but monetary donations do seem to increase my enthusiasm. It of course needs to be clear that donations are not intended to guarantee future development.

I'm not a fan of donation systems for a variety of reasons, so I was thinking of a sponsorship system. This would work as following:

1) A banner at tt++ startup will go for $25 and will run for 1 year.
2) If you only want to spend $10 $15 or $20 that's possible and the banner will get displayed less frequently (40%, 60%, 80%).
3) A banner will exist of the mud name, mud address, and a brief 4 line (80 characters per line) objective overview of the mud. Objective is key here. Areas to address are the Genre, Theme, Setting, Gameplay (Roleplay/Player vs Player), when the mud was created, etc.
4) Past donations will be honored as going towards a sponsorship (just shoot me an email from the email you used to donate).
5) Sufficient participation (at least 4 people) is key so shoot me an email first if you're interested: mudclient@gmail.com
6) If several people want a banner for the same MUD they can split the cost, or you can wait until 2016.

Out of curiosity, how does this differ from advertisements?

In any event, I'll pass this on!

An advertisement tries to sell a product where as I'd like to keep these banners purely informative.

Not a whole lot of interest it seems (understandably), and I guess it's questionable to promote muds through 3rd parties as the mud in question may not want to be promoted for one reason or another.

So I'm dropping the idea of player sponsorships.
