A group of SE users and I are collaborating on an open-source project similar to the SE network (basically an alternative for frustrated users), and I would like to get the word out to interested SE users. I am currently using my profile description to advertise, but my profile doesn't get a lot of exposure.
Am I permitted to:
Include a short link to the project in the comments section of my own personal post?
Bring it up in conversation where the user shows visible desire to move away from the SE network?
Include a link to the project in my answers to other posts?
Just to note - I am aware of what qualifies as "responsible" advertising and I don't want to cause spam around the site. Are any of the above options allowed on Meta.SE?
And if the answer is no, then so be it - I just figured I'd ask before somebody got angry.
