We have a special place in our hearts for self-published authors spreading the message of truth, individualism, and liberty. We offer these crusaders a VERY special rate to make it easy to place their works into the Classified section of Need to Know. Authors writing on these themes will receive a 50% discount on any Classified ad that is billed on a three-month, auto-renew cycle. It can be canceled any time after the first cycle. A 275-character ad that normally costs $39 per month is thereby reduced to $58.50 for three months or just $19.50 per month.

Side-bar banners are 326 pixels wide, 200 pixels or more tall.
Header banners and those tucked within the text of news articles are 692 pixels wide x 87 pixels high.
Rates are determined by the total number of pixels. That is determined by multiplying the width by the height. A banner measuring 326 pixels wide by 200 pixels high will contain 65,200 pixels. The following chart converts total pixels into a monthly rate.

Ads are dynamically rotated, which means they are viewed in sequence with other ads in the same location. Their position in the queue is random, and the order is changed every time the page is refreshed. This allows all ads to appear at prime viewing locations and lessens the tendency for viewers to become ‘blind’ to ads that always are seen in the same location.
Banners must be in a TIF, JPG, or GIF format. Animations must be slow. Flashers and shakers are not eligible. Banners can be changed any time at no additional cost.*

* New banners must be the same size as the original. For Classified ads, if the character count after the change is no more than the original count (or 275, whichever is greater), there will be no additional cost. If the revised count is greater than that by ten or more characters, it will be necessary to revise the billing. Revised rates become effective on the next renewal date.
