Navigating the Community :compass:

Here’s a brief intro to the categories in the Community and their purpose:

Backstage News Get updates and info related to Make and releases.
Makerhood Start off-topic conversations, and connect with other users in the community.
Custom Apps Discuss topics related to custom app development in Make.
Solution Exchange Promote your professional services, or post when looking to hire a pro.

Self-promotion in the Community :loudspeaker:

We value open collaboration and solution-focused discussions. If you’re a Make expert and want to offer your paid services, please avoid spamming every conversation with self-promotional comments.


Instead, here are some effective ways to promote yourself within the Community:

  • Introduce your business in the description of your Community profile.
  • Share information about your work in the Introductions thread, allowing others to get to know you and your expertise.
  • Promote your paid services in the dedicated Solution Exchange category, where members actively seek solutions.
  • Consider adding a link to your website or Calendly in your Community signature for easy access to your offerings.

:rotating_light: We want to maintain a positive and supportive space, so please be aware that any spammy or excessively self-promotional comments will be promptly removed.
