[Owasp-board] Corporate Sponsor and Advertising Change

I have some suggestions to enhance the corporate sponsorship program and banner ad advertising program.

I would like to propose that we 

1) Move corporate sponsor logos from the home page to a dedicated sponsor page. https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Sponsors ( An example of this can be found here 
http://www.apache.org/foundation/thanks.html )
2) Place the sponsorship link on the left hand side of the wiki nav bar, near the top (or more prominently on the homepage)
3) Add several new tiers of corporate sponsorship (gold, silver and bronze sponsorship)
4) Since this will lead to new income, phase out the banner add program on the homepage
5) I this would have the effect of cleaning up the homepage, a lot, while still driving more or the same income if we look at corporate sponsorships and banner adds combined (around 200k/year total currently)


When considering #3, here are a list of different sponsorship packages we could offer:

Gold Sponsors (40k/year)
Silver Sponsors (20k/year)
Bronze Sponsors (5k/year)
Infrastructure Support Sponsors (those doing trade to help keep our infrastructure going like RackSpace).

Take a peek at http://www.apache.org/foundation/sponsorship.html for more info.
