Could be just me, but if I read this post without looking at the URL I would rather think this is a Hostea blog post.

After [upgrading a Gitea intsance from 1.9.6 to 1.16.5](https://discourse.gitea.io/t/blank-page-after-login/5051) the tests conducted manually did not uncover any problem. However, after going to production, some users saw a blank page after login and had to manually type the URL of the project they wanted to see in the browser. The person in charge of the upgrade never had to diagnose Gitea problem and [reached out in the Gitea forum](https://discourse.gitea.io/t/blank-page-after-login/5051).
> **Tip: explain the problem in a public forum as early as possible to get help fro the community**

Yes, it's about both Gitea and Hostea. It is a byproduct of the ongoing User Research about Gitea upgrade experiences announced on the Gitea forum a few weeks ago.

I don't find enough value of this article from the technical aspect. So I wouldn't like to approve it in the official Gitea blog.

At the end of the article, that's the difference between community support and commercial support. I couldn't say which one is better. Both of them have different users. And even commercial software may also have many bugs. i.e. Windows .

Noticed that you really want Gitea advertise for Hostea. I think the best way is to contribute in https://opencollective.com/gitea . If you become a Gold Sponsor , we could put your logo in Gitea's official website.

But I think it's still welcome to post more valuable technical articles about Gitea.

I respect your decision as a Gitea owner and will close this pull request. I also appreciate how delicate it is for a volunteer based project such as Gitea to position itself when it comes to organizations and people trying to derive an income from it.

I think you are not making the right decision and here is why:

  • The article contains valuable technical insights regarding Gitea upgrades that are difficult to find elsewhere
  • The article on fly.io also advertises the benefits of commercial services for Gitea users

All the financial transactions with description are open in opencollective. I think all of them are reasonable and necessary to run the services for Gitea and Community.

For the last two questions:

The first one, pull request to document in Gitea is welcome.
The second, that article is totally introducing how to deploy Gitea in fly.io and given the commands and configuration file of the service.

For the record:

I followed your advice and Hostea is now a Gitea Gold sponsor.

You also suggested:

...pull request to document in Gitea is welcome.

I'm unable to do that primarily because I do not have a GitHub account (and don't want to, their Terms of Service are unacceptable).
