One of the reasons I started volunteering at Resonate was not only because I saw Resonate as an awesome opportunity to build a fairer music streaming platform, but I also hoped that Resonate could eventually become a place where creatives could have a lot of business opportunities, and educational opportunities around entrepreneurship, that would help them turn their craft into their primary source of income.

With that being said, **my startup company Amplify - Innovation & Entrepreneurship ( recently created two virtual entrepreneur workshops, and I was wondering if it would be appropriate to post the flyer and promo codes for them as a topic in one of the categories on the forum?

I want to respect the integrity of this awesome community, but I also believe that these workshops could help creatives better understand their personal value to the world, so that they could use this newly found value to drive more income into their pockets, so I just wanted to make this post in forum governance real quick, to ask people’s opinion on if it would be okay for me to drop a link, or if I should save this post for other outlets instead?

The virtual entrepreneurship workshops are set to start on Monday of next week, but I am interested in hearing everyone’s thoughts on this, and will respect your opinions before doing anything further.

Thank you,

  • Sam Martyn

Sounds cool to me. Curious what others think.

@Sam_Martyn I can see how it could be healthy to have a ‘marketplace’ zone in this forum where independent vendors and projects could offer goods and services like yours.

If that were evolve as a policy I think it would be helpful for forum visitors to have clear notice that:

  • such vendors are wholly responsible for the offers they make
  • they are their offers are not affiliated with or endorsed by the Co-op
  • the Co-op cannot be held liable for any claims lodged against vendors or their offers.

Does that sound reasonable? Do Members here have other policy ideas?

Perhaps we could set an experimental trial period - 3 Months? And then support a Member review process?

I’m here working on Forum Governance for the next hour. Anyone is welcome to drop in. Open agenda!

I’ve moved this topic to the new Terraforming category. I think having it in Terraforming will encourage related topics to emerge on forum and goverance themes (and in a dedicated space), whereas currently most topics on those themes get buried over time in the very broad Community Conversations category.
