Question

Moderation question.


I've waited a few days to make sure I am not knee-jerk reacting to being asked to edit my posts.

Here are the two threads in question:

T-6A Texan II, by Unique Models - Finally!

New P-51D 1.2m WS foamie with Sliding Canopy, EPO, Retracts

I have edited the posts in question, but have some concerns.

I was warned in two threads, where I was asking existing owners of specific models which spares they would like to see stocked, as no dealer or distributor currently offers replacement parts. I honestly fail to see how that constitutes outright advertisement or promotion of my site, but I will be more careful in the future.

I have read and re-read the relevant rules section. I have been here for eight years, a never received a single point up till this past weekend. I consciously try to make sure my posts provide useful information, and help the people who already own these planes. (I own and fly these specific planes too, after all). I fully intend to ensure no further points are awarded. I do hope though, that should any reports be lodged, the source of the complaints is considered.

I was also told not to promote my business in another user's thread. This confuses me a little, as it seems like most kits/models have a single thread to keep all the relevant information in one place. The opening post did not indicate the original poster was a vendor (or I wouldn't have posted there). Why then create multiple threads with duplicate information? Are you suggesting that I am barred from posting in any existing threads? I sure hope not. Please provide a little clarification on this point.

Regards, RG

Next time don't edit your posts and appeal the warnings. That way we can take a look and verify if your posts did or didn't break any rules. I don't think your post in the P51 thread should have been warned.
