List etiquette question

I’ve written a little ruby/rails hangman-ish app to keep my wife
occupied at
work that I think list members might also find interesting. I’m new to
this
list so I wanted to see if it would be considered bad form to post the
link
before I did. There aren’t any ads so I’m not getting anything out of
more
visitors, but I still didn’t want to take the chance of incurring the
wrath
of a list I might need help from in the future. : ) Would I be shunned
and
exiled for doing so??

Don’t worry.

Let’s see this beast !

For all of the maybe 6 people on the list who only use Internet Explorer
and
couldn’t use the app before, I’ve updated it so that it works in IE too
now.
You can also now choose whether you want the images to come from Flickr
or
Yahoo and I’ve added a couple other minor things. I think I have fixed
the
nil image error too so if you get that again let me know.

Thanks to all those who commented about it before. I hope people
continue to
enjoy it.

Got it, thanks.

My apologies to all, I didn’t realize there was an [ANN] thread (though
I’m
sure I it was probably mentioned in the registration emails).

While I doubt I’ll be doing any more major development (not my day job
:slight_smile:
I’ll keep the points in your email in mind if there’s anything else I
want
to share.

Standard etiquette allows one annoucement, with the [ANN] prefix in
the subject. This assumes its not a commercial/pay-only site or
something. I would imagine if you are doing this often, people will
start to get annoyed, but an occasional annoucement about a new site
or plugin you’ve written is fine.
