About ads and promoting


(Miguel Piedrafita) #1

@mhxion recently raised a concern about ads in his introductory post:

I just wanted to mention that I don’t plan to include ads on the forum. CoderYouth it’s supposed to be a friendly place and in my opinion, ads would ruin that.

With that said, here are a few rules on what is considered advertising:

  • Promoting your own stuff (i.e. myself promoting UnMarkDocs or @dmfj promoting CodePier) is allowed and even encouraged.
  • Promoting relevant stuff (i.e. talking about GitHub, DigitalOcean, Sentry, etc.) is allowed.
  • Promoting stuff unrelated to yourself, your work and the community is not allowed.

Finally, if you’re providing an affiliate link, you’re encouraged to mention you’re using an affiliate link, although not obliged.
