Please consider this appeal - Doesn't seem right
I just received a warnning for violating the following rule:
User Account Violation (Custom User Title) The user's Custom User Title qualifies as offensive content or contains an ad for a non-sponsor.
My custom user Title is as follows: "www.eflightwiki.com"

I can see how is can be technically considered an ad for a non-sponsor, however I'm assuming the reason for this rule is to protect your sponsors interests. The Eflight Wiki is completely community driven and ad free. It's a site which promotes the hobby and in the end if it encourages more people to entre the hobby (or stay in it) then it can only be good for your sponsor. I really can't see how they'd consider this a threat to their interests, only a benefit.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this appeal, in the end I respect the fact that is is RCGroup's site and the admins have ultimate say. I will replace my custom user title if this appeal is rejected.

Custom user titles with URLs are only for sponsors.
You could post about the wiki in the "other web sites" forum.

OK fair enough.
