sponsoring project

Posted by on Apr 28, 2009 in | 2 Comments

Hi everyone,

today, we are launching our sponsoring project.
Aim of this project is to help,, and the other sites to keep it as you know it today and to help us to investigate into further new features, improvements, hosting and projects for our community.

So what exactly is the sponsoring you may ask. Well, the sponsoring is a platform for companies and enterprises which want to prominent present their products, services and job offers on the sites to a large audience of Open source and IT experts. Advantages as a sponsor are free premium job offers, ad banners, mentionings in blogs, news and many more.
At the moment we have over 90 million page views and 2.6 million unique visitors per month.

So If you know a company who wants to support the open source community via our sponsoring project or if you have suggestions for us we’re happy to hear from you.
You can also contact us to get the whole feature list and price list. Providing us a sponsor is good for you, too. Each user who help us to find and to acquire a sponsor receive 30% of commission for the first month for each new sponsor as a bonus. More on our “sponsoring Information page”

    Great Idea, good luck!

    P.S.: I noticed a little typo on the sponsoring page, in the description of “recuiting” should be replaced with “recruiting”

    I don’t know if this is really related but well…

    I always wanted to have some kind of small web space where I can upload all my settings (or bookmarks, contacts…) and easily retrieve them. It would be utterly cool if a site
    from the opendesktop network would propose this kind of service.
    Once this is in place, one could inform his favorite desktop environment (KDE, Gnome…) that he has an account to this service and his settings will be automatically uploaded/retrieved from there.
    For my part, I’d be willing to pay a fee for this (especially if this can help the opendesktop and all the related project). Maybe some people will reject this idea because it involves money and open-things but actually, it can be see as a way to help his favorite projects and one can have a great service in return.
