So, my site is "going live" (coming out of open beta) and I am kinda at a loss about affiliation. In the past we have had a few static slots and then a couple of "official partners" who were usually sites belonging to friends. We are planning on increasing the number of static slots and having a marquee beneath them (am not bothered about how it looks in the footer :P). My issue is, how many slots should we have in total and how should they be selected. I am kinda tired of having to edit the footer all the time to get rid of dead boards so my instinct is to only affie with those who are a year old or more. How to choose? That is the question.
