That being said, we also want people to be able to read about and get information on software and hardware that is available to them for robotics, electronics and computers, so we will allow some companies and organizations to create posts only on their open source, GPL or free products. It is acceptable on these posts to add a link to your company website but no other solicitations will be permitted. For instance; if a company wants to write a tutorial, give updates or provide diagrams and instructions on their free products, they can do so and also add a link to their website to download the free or open source material. If you have a published book for sale that pertains to your free or open source product, you can include it in your post but you will only be able to give the title of the book, the author and ISBN. You will not be permitted to list prices, sales specials or have links to your distributors. However, if your book or article is a free download and does not have other purchasing or special conditions, then please add a link and share it with the community.
