Posting link in other thread

I recently built a micro coax heli. Being micro and multi rotor it fits in two forum clasification. Not knowing which forum it would be best posted in I put it in the multi rotor forum and posted a link to this thread in the micro heli forum.

The link in the micro heli forum was moved to the multi rotor forum. So now there is two of the same thread in the multi rotor forum.

Answer me this, what is wrong with putting a link in the micro heli thread?????

We have a couple of people going on with it in the Firefly thread saying things like "if people like David followed the guidelines".

Obviously these people are "off topic" this does not seem to bother them. They have there own rules guidelines apparently.

I say over the top.

Dave

I will point out thet when making a new post one of the category options is Link.

I still can't see what is wrong with posting a link, and want an answer as to what is, don't just tell me its against the guidelines.

Where does it say you can't post a link????

Where does it say the micro heli forum is single rotor only?????

Why move the Link???? It could be left there and the thread closed to further discussion.

The problem is that you are posting the same thing in two forums. Here is the rule:
Cross-posting Posting the same content in multiple posts. Note that the moderators may take other actions rather than issue a warning, depending on the circumstance. They may choose to merge cross-posted threads, send cross-posted threads to the Bit Bucket, or take no action.

That doesn't answer any of my questions.

I've read the rules before today.

Cross posting. Posting the same content in multiple "posts".

I posted a "link" not the same content.

What did you achieve by moving thread. The same content as you call it is still in multiple posts. Makes a lot of sense doesn't it.

You crack me up laughing

I believe you can't give a senseable answer to my questions.

Under the circumstances, that is the heli fitting two forum classification, what is wrong with posting a "link", no other content, in another "forum".

Here is another scenario for you.

I'm not getting answers from site staff here and so would like other users to chime in and give there opinion on the matter. That would mean either putting a link to this thread in the chat forum or starting a new thread there.

But no, that would be breaking the rules wouldn't it.

My wife says your on a power trip.

True or not you certainly:

don't know how to interpret rules
don' know how to implement rules
don't know how to police rules
don't know how to be fair

Get down off your high horse.

Jim Graham is on location at the Joe Nall fly-in and might not have time to get back to you and your wife, so let's see if I can help out...

You are welcome to post a link in Site Chat and encourage participation.

Cross posts are handled by the moderator's discretion. I will remind them that the "do nothing" option could be exercised more vigorously.

Here is a perfect example.

This thread
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=556227
is about helis, is in airplane forum, is 1041 days old and has had 583,569 views.

AND HAS NOT BEEN MOVED

go figure.

Don't get me wrong, I don't want it moved.

Just get the point. There are some people, I could think of a better name for them, with nothing better to do then go out of there way to anoy other users.

My threads were in the right place and didn't last a day.
