Quoted from: http://www.nabble.com/Another-user-that-seems-to-ask-for-attention. -tf2138356.html#a5901241
The www.nabble.com is service that is reposting mails from opensuse.org mail lists in the fashion that they appear like they originate on their web forums. I don't use their services, so if you want to discuss advertising, not only with me, but with other openSUSE contributors too, please subscribe to opensuse-wiki list. The proper place might be also opensuse-project mail list.
How to do that you can find on http://en.opensuse.org/Communicate page.
What do yo mean another user "seems to aks for attention." I'm not asking for any particular attention.
It was not only about you, but you are first with own web page listed on en.opensuse.org. Advertising was never discussed in depth on openSUSE. It was previous discussion related to attempts to post commercial links that have nothing to do with openSUSE, but never about rules for people that want to create and build their own small business around openSUSE.
That is the reason to post this answer on opensuse-wiki (note CC field). I want others to give opinion too.
You are not alone, and more people might want to do the same, but don't want to upset others, so we have to see how to solve this.
I think that any legitimate effort should be allowed, and even place more prominent than user own page, but to prevent unnecessary discussions of type "he can, why I can't", "this was allowed, why not this too" we need answers to few questions: - What is allowed, and what not, besides what is written on http://en.opensuse.org/Legal - Do we have to publish rules? - Do we have to vote on every occasion, or we will use both, rules and voting. - Do we need openSUSE market place? - What people would buy/sell/advertise?
I'm trying to contribute with my efforts ...
Isn't strange that so simple web page has such feature on link that suppose
to be PayPal. Yes! The web site is simple and down to earth no fancy code just get up and running was my point.
Setup web page is not "just to get up and running" as your initial effort contain a lot of elements that can be found very often on web pages that exist for all other reasons, but to help visitors. Now it is looking much better than few words and PayPal button, as it was in the very beginning.
Initially I wanted to sell something out of my web after a lot of thoughts. I decided to putt out the PayPal button. The point of my web is to help new users and or entities managed by foreigners to get a grip on Linux.
Hope you understand!
I do understand any legitimate effort, but also that building a trust relationship in todays Internet is major problem and web page creation is mix of art, technical knowledge and experience how to avoid many of pitfalls.
