    Unhappy Thread Constantly Removed


    A few days ago, I've posted one advertisement on the Web Hosting offers forum 7 days after my previous one. However, the next time I came back, I see that it has been deleted. I posted another, and it happens again. May I know why are my threads removed? Did a competitor did this?

    You have three threads in the Web Hosting Offers forum within the last 20 days, advertising the exact same offer. How many threads have you posted exactly? You are lucky you have not received a warning against your name for spamming.

    Web Hosting Offers:
    The spot to post your special offers that your (or the company you work for) web hosting company is offering. Please try and keep the posts in here to once a week per company. Not a spot to discuss web hosting companies, Not a spot to constantly reply to your own topics to "bump" them up to the top.

    Self-explanatory. I posted 1 per week, but for this week, someone doesn't seem to like me very much.

    I'm fairly certain that the rules are intended for posts, not threads. The Web Hosting Offers forum users get away with a lot due to it being a non-discussion forum, but you may have come under the notice of a moderator in there for some reason.

    You will need to wait for one of the moderators from that forum to reply, for a concise answer.

    My guess is that it wasn't posted correctly. I took a look, and there are no threads deleted that you created (in the last 2 weeks anyways). I didn't look further, but you have a post on July 7, July 14, and July 24. A moderator did not remove your posts. The only way I wouldn't see it if it was done at the admin level, which I don't necessarily see an admin doing.

    A competitor can not remove your posts. Only a mod or an admin.

    @Winters: The Web Hosting forums allow for the new threads (even of the same offer) once every 7 days.
