Re Hub on Open software

    I have a hub on opensource software, which is apparently not ok as it relates to free downloads. I thought that was part of the community spirit of the internet? Anyway, didnt know it was not permissable. Is there a way of re writing so it can still be written, but from a different perspective?

    What is the exact warning message on the hub?

    I am working from memory here, but no writing on free downloads. Violates terms of use...

    Are you sure it's not just in a saturated topic?

    Is there an actual warning on your hub?

    Saturated topics will have a warning such as "This hub is about MLM" or "This hub is about forex". It doesn't mean they're going to be unpublished, it just means they're held to a higher editorial standard and you can't post affiliate links in them.

    I am pretty sure there are no affiliate links. Ill have to check it properly. Ive also found a great social network software that looks brilliant that I want to learn to use.

      This is a normal warning that actually means absolutely nothing. Any hub written in a saturated topic has this warning. Unless you're a spammer, ignore it.

        Thanks, because some of these downloads are fantastic. Or open software is. I appreciate the use I get from it and know that it can make a difference to people who cant access windows.
