As of August 2009, we have revised our policy regarding partner content in Cool Solutions. For over a year we have limited partner content to Webinar and Event announcements, and technical tips that promote a Novell product in conjunction with a partner product.

We did this in response to complaints that our sites were too full of “advertorial” content that crowded out the technical information our sites are famous for. However, that strict policy excluded us from publishing news and special offers that might be interesting to our readers.

Therefore, we have decided to allow a wider range of information from our partners:

1. Webinars and Event announcements
2. Technical tips showing Novell products in conjunction with partner products.
3. Product release information
4. Special offers and promotions
5. Success stories

We will decline articles that place other partners in an unfavorable light. The focus should always be on the positive benefits of using Novell products together with partner products.

To get longer and broader exposure, Partners are always welcome to purchase ads to promote their offerings, announce new products, highlight successes, solicit beta testers, etc.

To purchase ads, contact Brian Smith (
