      Someday, I learned Lobste.rs is not very fond of people submitting mostly their own work (a.k.a. self-promoting posts). So I got curious and went to see the author’s submissions.

      Well, out of 89 submissions, 87 are “authored by ruki”, one is not marked but is from their personal blog (therefore, 88 self-authored submissions) and one submission, three years ago, which isn’t self-promoting.

        There are a few people who mostly submit their own stuff (@soatok comes to mind) that the community is fine with, because it’s consistently engaging and high quality. But even then I think it’s good etiquette to also submit and comment on other stories. I try to keep the ratio of my stuff : other stuff below 1:4.

        I think at one point @pushcx estimated that frontpaging on Lobsters drives as much traffic as tens of thousands in marketing budget.

          What chafes me it’s basically very minor releases. If it’s a big headlining release, OK (assuming you also submit other stuff…). If it’s chump change, why bother except for the clicks?

            I don’t think this is a small version change. I have a lot of new features and improvements for each version, and I also introduce them in detail in the article.

            In addition, I only submit an update every few months, and it is not very frequent. And I see that other shorter versions of articles are allowed. Why my article is considered spam, I am very confused, such as this one, https://lobste.rs/s/hjge7k/python_release_3_10_0 https://lobste.rs/s/qj806e/zig_0_8_0_release_notes https://lobste.rs/s/prutnh/zig_v0_7_0_released https://lobste.rs/s/oln4mx/llvm_13_released

            Well, if you are bored with this, I will not submit them in the future, I am very sorry.

              No doubt it seems that way to you, as you are the software author. But to us the changes are minor, sorry :(

              Thing is, those who submit those posts don’t submit only those release notes. If someone came along from the Python project and submitted a story for every single minor release Python ever did, and only submitted those, well, it wouldn’t be very nice, even if those versions of python had some great features.

              Well, if you are bored with this, I will not submit them in the future, I am very sorry.

              I wouldn’t mind the occasional post detailing something novel about xmake, or the very occasional major release notes. But it would be nice if you participated in other ways as well.
