That's a tricky one, and depends largely on the mood of whoever is answering on that particular day. If it's a commercial product then it's probably going to be treated as advertising by some of the regulars, even if you only want beta testers. If you're being legit, then take the 1 votes on the chin.
I'm not a stalker, I just know things. Oh by the way, you're out of milk.
Commercial is a tricky definition tho.. if its free to end users, does that make it non commercial. (there are other ways of generating revenue)
There is not much activity on this board, and maybe thats becuase of the guildeines... I mean, the title clearly states collaboration / beta testing, so I would think it should be fair to allow projects wanting beta testers, to post here.
I would also expect projects requiring beta testers to be free of cost or incentivise the testers, even though the nature of the product may become commercial.
Wanting beta testers + getting your product exposure is being legit, obviously people would want the exposure offered by this sort of forum, becuase they want to attract beta testers (to help development).. and ultimatly gain a user base. Without the exposure both the forum and its purpose are pointless.

Hello, This is an application for solving equations and graphing it. I developed it in Vb.net. Please give me a feedback. Download
contacting is welcomed.
I don't quite understand your answer. Isn't the purpose of this forum to allow people to ask for help with their software? Or have you seen the OP post on other forums, in a way that suggests he is advertising a commercial product?
It's unlikely that many people here would be willing to download and run an exe that's hosted on Rapidshare. There are simply too many dangers in running unknown exe's, and too many stories of malicious payloads.
You have two choices:
1. As Richard suggested, write an article and post it here on Codeproject. This will give you a chance to explain it in detail, and you would get the best feedback by doing this.
2. Set up a web site where you can host the download, and explain it there.
Before people are going to want to take a chance to run your app, they are going to have to trust you. Hosting on Rapidshare is not the way to do this.
Currently, only a Windows version of this software is available and so, one or several people would be necessary (because the current developers are very busy at the time) to help us to convert this Windows application to a Linux application.
The application is developed in C++ and is compiled with Visual Studio 2008.
About the librairies included in the project, I don't know all because I'm not developer of the project but I can tell you that uses:
_ STLport (not sure)
Could you help us ?
Thank you for your cooperation.
Hello my name is Nicolas Khoury, and I have a huge Text compression project to solve, and I'm having a hard time with it. I have all the predefined classes that I need to use, I just don't know what to do. Is there anyone who can give me their e-mail so I can upload the assignment and the classes and help me build the code? if so, please reply to my e-mail: email@example.com
You have asked the exact same question a week ago, and were told what to do, yet you have chosen to ignore that. As you haven't shown any new effort or progress, I'm afraid this week will not be better than the previous one.
I started developing a new customcontrol for asp.net, that should be a proxy for validating UI via DataAnnotations. There are already code and articles all around, but there is no complete implementation with a client side validation. I decided to develop a customcontrol that fits this leak, unfortunately is not finished yet and I will need some help to finish it. Anybody that has some free time, good will and sufficient knowledge about jQuery and custom controls is welcome. Once finished and tested the control, we will make a nice article to publish on codeproject.
I'm always for collaborative efforts and do have some knowledge of jQuery, but you'll have to elaborate on what you consider as "sufficient knowledge about jQuery". I'd like to conribute, but I'm unsure about being "up to the task".
After JoeSox posted his reader for android I contacted him to let him know I was going to work on one for the iPhone/iPod/iPad. If there is anyone interested in beta testing this before I submit it to the app store, let me know.
If you've got 60 seconds, please visit this CodePlex page[^] and vote to request that CodePlex allow Lake Quincy Media advertisements as well as the provider it currently uses.
Lake Quincy Media is the advertising part of The Code Project, including not just the Code Project but 240 other dev-related sites as well. The more sites we have in the network, the more advertisements we can get, and the more advertisements we can get, the more money we have to put back into The Code Project to buy more hamsters, orange paint, and the like.
(And if you're interested in joining the network and running LQM ads on your site, send me a message and I'll get you taken care of!)
