So, any conclusions with the announcements on Answers ?

I got conflicting texts here, and (A conjunction non-A) makes by brain go round.

A ==

On netiquette it is said:

"Please don't ask questions with announcements for your plugins or add-ons. If there's a question for which an add-on is a natural fit as an answer, that's perfectly within the spirit of helping! "

non-A ==

However, the guide for promoting a commercial addon specifies that people should make announcements on Answers.

Well ? Although I'm not very active lately here (busy spinning) I saw some announcements on Answers. I didn't have the time to check if they were commercial addons ...

My problem is that I'm some hours away to publish some open-source stuff. However, I do not know if I should brag here or just publish the d**n thing and forget about it ...

I still think it's fine to announce plugins here. There's been a few recently, no complaints. As a user, it's interesting to see new stuff arriving.

I do object to people who bleat about their plugins at every available opportunity, but, as you say, they're breaking the "netiquette" rule you posted.

I think Atlassian should have a clear policy - like a consistent prefix of "plugin announcement - new/major release" or something like that, and the announcement should be written as a "hey, we've done new stuff, please try it, it does X and there's loads more detail at url Y", rather than the more annoying slabs of marketing blurb which doesn't tell you enough.

Wouldn't be more sensible from Atl to push a standard message with any publish on marketplace here, on the board? Automated, I mean.

right... for now the only other option is to subscribe to https://plugins.atlassian.com/feed/plugin

I also tend to agree with Nic, as long as it is not some marketing material, it is quite okay to announce the plugins to know about the features.

Ok, thanks Nic, Renjith!
