looktotheright logo linking to cheap commercial website with a different domain name

hi,

I looked at the sponsor logos at the site footer...
and clicked on "looktotheright", cause it appeared strange to me....
then you know where I landed:
c0mplex1.com

I mean, in the name of transparency, the link should be the same as the logo.. right?
like looktotheright.com || or the logo should be c0mplex1.com

Also, that website looks pretty cheap -- I don't mean the prices..
very bad image

I'm shocked. A dumb "grow your business" kind of ad at linuxmint??
what the hack?

Peter

jepe, this is one of the reasons we love the Linux and Linux Mint projects. A community who cares and invests time to authenticate and maintain quality.
We did eMail the contact we had on file November 21st 2023 at 3:03pm ET but never got a response. The online form for Sponsors allowed us to update some aspects of sponsorship but not all resulting in the branding mismatch.

We will be sure to pass along your design critiques to our designer.

If you have a business or project you would like more traffic on please reach out to us for Digital Marketing services!

mikeflan, appreciate the kind words. We are happy to support!

xenopeek, thank you, we are glad to contribute in the ways we can!

Hi, apologies you didn't get a reply on the email before today. We've updated the logo on your sponsorship to your new logo:
