But why are member projects “sponsored” by advertisiers? I have not received any compensation by Oliver + S for any of my projects, and yet it is implied that I have received compensation. I use my own money and time to sew for myself, unless otherwise specified. In the case of my Westminster contest project where my project was literally sponsored by Westminster I think this is especially misleading.
I understand the need for advertising dollars to help run the site, but I would be happier if this type of ad was worded more honestly. Something like “project pages sponsored by…” rather than “PROJECTS sponsored by…”. Or perhaps it could just read “Burdastyle Sponsor…”
