What We Do Not Feature on the Adafruit Blog

We are open to almost all suggestions for our Blog. There are a few things we do not do:

  • We do not post about crowdfunding (kickstarter, indiegogo, etc) projects until after they have delivered their incentives to their backers, out of respect for the many members of our community currently involved in new crowdfunding projects. Please feel free to reach out to us after supporting your backers!
  • We do not post any negative content. We focus on the positive and exciting things happening in our communities!
  • We do not post any explicit content. We have many young makers who read our blog. Please consider this when reviewing the language and content of the tip you want to send.
  • The maker community is made of hundreds of thousands of people with different politics, beliefs, cultures, religions, passions, favorite microcontroller platforms, opinons on hot glue vs epoxy. We welcome all types!
