Description (last modified by lisabielik)

Many users applying for whitelisting are not reading the criteria before they submit the form, despite there being 2 links. The links to the list of criteria are not prominent as they are buried within a paragraph of text.

To make the criteria link more prominent and part of the application form submission update the text.

How to reproduce

  1. Go to https://acceptableads.com/en/solutions/get-whitelisted/
  2. Read text above the form.

Current text

Many advertisers and publishers already benefit from using Acceptable Ads. If you want to be one of them, read our guidelines and fill out the form <link>.

I would need to ask @innerself for actual numbers, but it is giving the whitelisting managers more work in having to sieve through poor quality submissions and getting back to them to describe the actual criteria.

@Lisa can you have a quick look over of the text.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Note: Please use markdown link format [link text](path/to/page) and avoid UTF-8 characters if possible (there were special characters around "Acceptable Ads initiative" that you probably copied unintentionally).

Anyway, Done :) - Thanks Jeen!
