I've been seeing ads for Parenting in the sidebar of various StackExchange sites recently, even though Parenting is only in beta. Does anyone know why/how this happened? The ads seem to be based on the images posted in this thread.

    I don't believe site promotion is normally limited to graduated sites. Beta sites frequently receive promotional activities, ranging from contests to ad space.

It's part of the regular site promotion, I think most SE sites do that kind of thing.
