When you buy text-ads with chips keep these rules in mind:
No mentioning other members of this community in a way that could be possibly be construed as negative.
Try to keep it PG-13
You’re free to your political speech just keep it cool.
If an ad violates these rules it will just be shut down, no refund – if this becomes a problem we might start fining chips for inappropriate ads. We don’t have time to play nanny here.

We … found a bug.
BlogShares members have been ‘voting’ blogs into categories (‘Industries’) and the backlog of votes awaiting approval had grown over the months to a daunting 60,000. A couple weeks ago we rolled out moderator incentives (chips) and today that queue hit zero.
As a result, moderators got the same screenfuls of blogs repeatedly, and karma awards got screwy. I temporarily raised the karma level required to moderate to 10,000 so we can undo the junk votes and fix the moderation scripts.
In the meantime, help improve the system (and gain some chips) by telling us what categories a blog belongs in. More on voting, courtesy the crack team over at the revived Unofficial BlogShares Strategy Blog.
