Angry Okay this is stuipd


Trickykid I posted a post asking for desktop shots, not advertising.. which of course is not against your rules if you had taken time to read them. They're really obscure either way. You make rules then the Language has to be specific or it's just silly to try to enforce them.

Specifically, you must of been referring to:
There is no selling allowed in the forums. If you are interested in advertising you can email ads@linuxquestions.org.

I was not selling anything nor advertising, I was making a request for information.

I'm not trying to flame you or anything you're just trying to enforce a rule that does not exist. I would of PM'd you about this however it appears you decided to charge for a service that should be free. Now users of the site if they have a complaint against a moderator will just have to post it in the forums.


I would also like to thank those who sent in screenshots during the night and would ask that you send in some more when you get new ones!

Please email privately, do not post these types of reports in the forums. If you do not like a judgement from a moderator, email them or the site admin.

All the moderators enable email, just FYI.

Regards.

Also for anyone else for clarification on advertising, advertising is a means of promoting or linking to another site (either your own or anyone elses) to gain from it by using our forums or from another site that allows you to post.

You weren't selling anything lewt but you were taking advantage of our forums to recruit others that use this site to direct them to the site you linked to. That is why your thread was closed, it is a form of advertising.

We are not the classifieds!

Regards.
