Here is my guess. Just a guess. And I'm a just regular forum member here.

Your first post smells strongly of advertising that driving simulator centre. If it is by a regular forum member who has established himself/herself as someone without financial interest to certain establishments, it is often viewed as a recommendation. But if it is by a first-time poster, and suddenly it is all about going to that simulator centre, then it hits the anti-advertising radar of the moderators and admins here. After all, this forum is a free forum, hence advertising needs to be done properly with a fee. Otherwise, we get spammers and advertisers who clutter this place and ruin the experience for everyone (not saying it is you).

Of course, if you don't mean to sounds like your advertising (probably mere ignorance on your part), perhaps you should try make the next post with less tone on promoting the location and more on gathering people to having fun karting/driving.

Just my input to help you.

Welcome to the forum anyway. It is wonderful place because you really get the wealth of information from contributing members, from life wisdom to personal recommendations. Hope you stay around to see what I really mean.

How am i suppose to phrase it like im not advertising because the fact is that i am not even advertising :o I am just a car-racing lover, so just want to find more people who have the same hobby as me to come together and head down to that location because i went there before, and it was a great experience... Just trying to help car-racing lover to save more money by travelling down to sepang or pasir gudang track...

There is no easy way for you because from a third-person perspective (again, maybe it is not you), you'd be heavily promoting that simulation centre. The onus is on you to prove that you have no financial affiliation to that place.

Perhaps you should head over to the Events, Gathering, Making Friends sub-forum first. And post to look for racing/karting lovers and ask them to PM you directly or email/call you (if you don't mind revealing your personal mobile and email address). Then suggest a meet-together at that place once you garner some interest. After all, as I recalled, you did say that you're keen to meet fellow racing/karting enthusiasts.
