Advertising on Github - what are the policies?

Solved! Go to Solution.

Today, I ran into [awesome-ios](https://github.com/vsouza/awesome-ios). I immediately noticed that it has an advertisement on it. It's easy on the eyes in my opinion.

 

However, I wanted to know if there is a policy for such things? If not, is this something the community should address?

 

It doesn't seem out of hand now. But it could get quite annoying if it spreads.

Hi @DanTheColoradan,

 

This is a great question. I am going to move this post to a different board that fits your topic of discussion a bit better. This means you’ll get better engagement on your post, and it keeps our community organized so users can more easily find information.

 

As you’ll notice, your topic is now here in the How to use Git and GitHub board. No action is needed on your part; you can continue the conversation as normal here.

 

Cheers!

Hi @DanTheColoradan,

 

I'd recommend taking a look at GitHub's Terms of Service, specifically the section on advertising. The tl;dr of that is "We do not generally prohibit use of GitHub for advertising. However, we expect our users to follow certain limitations, so GitHub does not become a spam haven."

I hope this helps!

Is there a way to purchase paid ads that run on Github? Looking into promoting some content relevant to machine learning, Python, deep learning, data science etc.  I am wondering if this is a service that you offer.
