I'm not sure if this is going to work or not. Only one way to find out...

I'm a programmer, and have coded a site building tool which, to say it in the fewest words, can be very generally described as an alternative to Wordpress.

I'm considering offering ad supported free hosting, with this site building interface. There would be an option to switch from free to paid at any time, thus removing the ads.

The tricky bit is, I need feedback from webmasters to make this decision, but if I bring up the subject of one of my own services in a webmaster forum, it is understandably seen as spam.

I have something that I think would be useful for many (not everybody) and I'm willing to share it for close to free.

Should we discuss it here, or call the moderator and have me banned? :-)

It's your call. I'm agreeable either way.

I'm not going to post any more on the topic unless some number of you specifically ask me to.
