    I wonder if you would consider to accept tutorials in spanish. Spanish speakers are also a large community, would be good to have some tutorials in spanish :)

    Hi there, i’m writing a tutorial and i want to add a diagram, were can i find the stencils used in your diagrams ?


    nice to hear from you

    thank you

    It is possible to write articles in other languages? For example in Portuguese.

    Hi there, do you accept tutorial on 3d modeling using Blender?


    I realized after submitting my article for review that I didn’t use any formatting. As I’m not used to the system Digital Ocean uses. I also only wrote a rough draft of a final piece. A basic cohesion of thoughts laid out in a pleasing manner. Is this alright for a submission to be reviewed? So I can go through and finish up after the review?

    I have been using another VPS provider and am happily taking DO for a spin. Your documentation is excellent! This style guide shows why—it’s been made a priority. One thing I am wondering…the figures are really clear. How do you make them? Keep up the good work.
