Questions that solicit product recommendations are off-topic on Server Fault. However, there are legitimate cases where a good answer may include a product recommendation.
What details about the product must be provided by an answer that includes a product recommendation? What expectations does the Server Fault community have? The help center doesn't seem to provide any guidance on this.
Note: This question has attracted answers which debate the pros & cons of including product recommendations in answers. However, this question assumes it's possible cases exist where such recommendations are allowed, and is asking what minimum information the community expects from posters in these cases.
Here's an example from Meta Super User's answer to this same question:
- Title of the the product with a link to the download/main page
- Give a brief overview of HOW to use the product OR in cases where it's too long, link to the product's manual pages
- Give any personalized information to the OP regarding how the recommendation solves his/her question.
