Now coming to the point why I never share any queries in the chat so I guess for that only PM option is there right!!! If I would have any queries then I will PM the client in spite of sharing on chat.
So if someone has issues with this than remove your PM option and we will paste all our queries directly on job post. People who have nothing to do post such kind of rubbish things just to remove their competitors.
1) There is absolutely nothing wrong with earning money with FreeCAD.
2) I am not interested in the discussions with your customers. I was rather talking about giving here and there an answer, sharing some of your knowledge. I'm sure you would rather gain than loose any customer by offering some help for free, thus showing your competence. And I asked how you have learned FreeCAD because it might shed some light on the wiki, the tutorials, the online help.
If you are too busy for that because you have to earn money all day, you still can consider to support FreeCAD on the financial side.
3) I am not really interested in certificates, albethey in gold, it's something more subtle. FreeCAD is an open source project. And in this sentence we have the notion of "free" - and it has been pointed out before that this means rather freedom than free beer - and the notion of "open", and this is open minded, open to other people, it has something to do with integrity.
I have never met any person from the forum in real life. I don't know if Jim is an old malodorous woman living near the northpole or Normand's pet is in reality a cuddly Boa Constrictor. But I'm sure that if I ever get to Australia, Brasil, or Canada I could have some nice talks about CADs, CATs or COWs.
I can understand that people want to keep their privacy and don't show too much of it in such a forum. But a company hiding behind a name that suggests - at least where I live - to be a young girl with some knowledge about CAD has the smell of dishonesty which is from my point of view inappropriate in such a forum.
