Post Guidelines

 | June 4, 2018 |  Posted In: Information

Thanks for thinking about posting to the Open Source Database Community blog.

Our guidelines are simple, with a few extra requests for commercial bloggers:

  • Content should be your own work.
  • If it is licensed elsewhere, then reproduction must be admissible under the license. Original content is best.
  • Be legal.
  • Be respectful.
  • The content should be relevant to the open source database world in the broadest sense.

There is more information about what we’d like to receive from you here.

We reserve the right to not publish a post. This is unlikely to be an issue, but examples would be if it strays too far off topic, is too overtly commercial without technical merit to the open source database audience, is evidently technically incorrect or poor practice, or if we feel it’s confrontational without being either constructive or well researched.

We add a disclaimer to each post, since we are not able to test the code content of every submission.

It’s most unlikely that any of this will become an issue!

Commercial articles

If you have a paid-for solution that’s relevant to open source database software, we’re of course happy to share information about it. Some specific guidelines then for this scenario:

  • Provide content of a technical nature: how to solve a problem using your product, how to use it, when to use it, why life is better when you use it.
  • Please don’t draw direct comparisons with a competitor, we can’t verify them.
  • If you have an open source and a commercial version of your product(s), then please be transparent when you are referring to paid-only features.
