Posting content to the AppleVis website

Post Date: Tuesday, November 6, 2012

We ask that you do not use the AppleVis website as somewhere to promote or discuss your own website, podcast, YouTube channel, mailing list or other online resource.

An exception to the above rule is that you may post about your resource to an existing discussion if it provides information that is relevant and likely to be of interest and value. For example, if somebody is asking for help on using an app, then it would be totally appropriate to direct them to a podcast that you might have on your website.

Any posts that fall outside of these guidelines will be removed.

We do not allow users to post “For Sale” adverts to the forum. Quite simply, there are better and more appropriate places to sell your unwanted or old pieces of kit. We also do not want AppleVis to be caught in the middle of any fallout which may come from a bad sale or purchase.
If you are a manufacturer, agent or reseller, please contact the AppleVis Editorial Team before posting information about any products to the website.

It's possible that you might have found problems or solutions that the previous poster did not observe.

It is also possible that the existing entry refers to an earlier version of the app, and a subsequent update has either fixed past problems or introduced new ones.

The most useful and helpful thing you can do is to post your observations as a comment to the existing entry. You can do this by clicking on the 'Add new comment' link that appears below App Directory entries.

No. If you have found an app to be inaccessible, please do post details to the App Directory.

Knowing about inaccessible apps is regarded by many users of this site as useful and valuable.

Other users might be willing to tolerate issues with an app that you consider make it inaccessible. This is particularly likely with apps that have desirable features not found in other apps or where there simply isn't a more accessible alternative.

Please read this page in full before recording a podcast for submission to AppleVis, as it contains tips and guidelines that will help you when making your recording and will ensure that your podcast will be of the greatest possible interest and value to listeners.

This page also sets out the guidelines and rules which inform our quality assurance process when reviewing podcast submissions.

Please try to avoid simply saying "this app is accessible" or "this app is not accessible".

Instead, think about the kind of information that you find useful when browsing the App Directory. Think about anything you have learned whilst using the app that might help other users.

If the app is inaccessible, then give some indication of the problems. Some others might decide that they are willing to try and work around the problems that you have identified.
