    If you want to discuss general add-ons from anywhere, we have no issue.

    Here on the forum, people tend to be quite thoughtful with their posts. On facebook, people seem to think it's fine to link to competitors for hardware sales.

    In a PM, if people want to send links to anything, assuming you're not spamming, feel free.

    In terms of links/procedures for other video add-ons, repositories or Wizard-like add-ons, again feel free in threads as well. You might want to make it clear that DroidBOX can't officially support 3rd party add-ons... in other words if we can't figure out something amongst ourselves on this forum, customers using other Wizards need to appreciate the author of the code will be better able to help than the hardware vendor. With common sense and realistic expectations, all is good.

    One final addition to this text (I've copied it from an old answer of mine to another thread), if you're new to this forum and don't have many posts yet, you won't be able to post new (live) links yet. What do I mean by live?
    https://DroidBOX.co.uk and http://google.co.uk are examples of live links, you click them, they open a site.
    If you don't yet have permission to post live links (which is nothing personal, just one way to keep the spammers away) then you can always replace the Ts in http or https with asterisks. So you'll find you can post (using the examples above)
    h**ps://DroidBOX.co.uk and h**p://google.co.uk
    Those links can not be clicked as they aren't valid URLs yet, however humans can normally read them and tell the * should be swapped for t.
