We continue to develop resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic. See COVID-19 initiatives on Appropedia for more information.
The Appropedia Foundation has discussed the possibility of advertising on Appropedia. We are not completely opposed to advertising, providing that: 1. The advertising is selected in such a way that it is completely congruous with the site. This probably means no Google Ads (in its current form) and a paid person to select the ads. 2. The ads are justified in making the site financially sustainable. 3. The ads are easy to turn off and are automatically off for those visiting from slow connections.
If Appropedia is to avoid the use of ads, then funding is needed from other sources. This will be challenging considering the current global financial situation, and will take a lot of effort.
