Based on the voting results for this question, Should cloud software be permitted in the "free software" question?, recommendations for cloud software should not be allowed in that question. How should we carry out the decision?
Instead of a simple yes/no answer like the above question, I will leave this question open ended so that the best/most voted proposal is implemented.
To help start getting some of the details filled in, I have the following questions/concerns:
- Should a new question be created for cloud software, or should an existing question, such as Looking for a FREE Cloud based 'Web Mapping Stack' Host be used? If a new question is to be created, who creates it? A regular user, a moderator, or the Community user?
- Should (and can) existing answers, e.g. the ColorBrewer recommendation, in the original question be migrated to the new question?
- Should the new question discuss only "free" solutions, or are paid solutions allowed as well?
- Should there be any ground rules set up regarding the disclosure of sign-up requirements, need for credit card/payment information, time/data/other limits, automatic fees, advertising, privacy concerns, etc.?
