What to write in your profile?
VENDORS: If you are affiliated with a for-profit company that sells tech products to nonprofits, NGOs, libraries and other mission-based organizations, and you will, at any time, recommend that product in the TechSoup forum, you absolutely must note this affiliation in your tech profile (are you an employee? are you an affiliate seller?) with the full name and location of the company. Also, make sure you have reviewed Rules & Standards, particularly item #3 regarding advertising. Failure to fill out your online profile may result in ALL of your posts being deleted and your being banned. If you want to recommend your product in response to a thread, you must fully disclose in your message that you are a seller, rather than a user, and ALSO, please be a true member of our community and answer some questions or offer advice on other threads that have nothing to do with your product. Here are more than a dozen ideas on ways you can participate in our forum as posting only about your product is a violation of our community standards.
You see the profiles of our volunteer community forum moderators as examples of what to write:
