The Astronomy Software and Computers forum is a place for members to discuss various astronomy related software and hardware. Software Developers that wish to promote their product(s) on Cloudy Nights website need to become familiar with the Vendor section in the Terms of Service (TOS) and be classified as such. This includes paid licenses and freeware. Promotional topics by Vendors, including announcements of software enhancements or new releases, must be made in the Vendor Announcement forum. Topics started in any other forum will be removed from the site.
The only exception will be when a member meets these 3 conditions:
1. A member links the source code with a public license so that others can then take and compile/modify the content and binaries on their own.
2. A single topic is started sharing this information. Subsequent posts are only for answering specific questions.
3. The developer does not take money or barter for software. This includes ad revenue sharing on a source code site or any other form of compensation including donations, even to a charity.
You may contact a forum moderator or any administrator with any questions regarding this.
