Can moderator tell me why do you cancel my posted topic?

Postby echo1998 » Fri, 16 Sep 2011 9:00 am

I posted a new topic "new comer looking for business partner" There is no advertise, only some business ideas and a brief profil of myself.

However I left my contact email add. Is it not allowed in this forum? If so, can you please cancel my email and repost it? It took me a lot of time to write it because english is not my mother tongue. And I haven't saved any copy.

Please!!!!! :(

Which word of this banner didn't you understand?

Any post that is soliciting for something from someone else is considered an advertisement. Looking for investors is soliciting. Sorry, but that's the rules here. Use the Classified section of this site for soliciting....

I'm sorry. To my understanding "looking for investor" is not allowed. But in my post I wrote very clearly I have the startup capital and I don't need an investor....
Can You please send back my post to me? I can change as required.

I checked again all the posts below. I haven't written a single word more than them:

1. my business ideas in some fields
2. my brief profile
3. my contact info (I thought this is forbitten)
4. my wish to get contact with people who have same ideas, experienced in these fields and work together with them. (Is this an issue?)

I'm really disappioted that our moderator can't even tell who is commercial here and who is really new comer wants to get contact/help... :( :( :(

You can also view things this way:

    A newcomer advertises something and thinks it is just about getting help. "Hello, I need some help to start my business. Any consultants out there?"

    Someone arrives in Singapore needs a place to stay and decides to post, "Any of you guys want to share a flat with me?"

These examples ask for help but they're still advertisements. We're disappointed that posters can't tell the different between just asking for help and asking for help via advertising.

We're positive, however, that it's not we who have problems telling the two apart. There are plenty of posts that manage to ask for help without advertising or soliciting for business.

Fair game? We believe it is.

Again, I don't need an investor and don't need a consultancy! Did you see a single word about I am looking for help in this way??? I need a business partner who do business (in the fields which I listed ) together with me!

I think I posted my intend very clearly! If you are not agree with my text, can you please indicate, which word is against your regulation???

If you think it is fair, why can't you just put my post here and let all readers give you an answer, if it is an advertising?

This is my first experience here and I don't want to be wronged so much by you!!!

Dear Echo1998,

I think you have mistaken this forum with some kind of democracy or courtroom where you can appeal. It isn't, nor should it be or it will degenerate into a quagmire or more likely a sandbox with fighting ad-nauseum.

There are rules, two mod's have told you they felt you accidentally overstepped them.

If I was you, I'd let it rest and take the friendly and positively offered advice to repost in the classifieds. Appealing to the masses for support against the moderators rightful decisions is not going to go over very well at all.

Just my thoughts but I've moderated on other forums and fully agree with a firm hand on the reins for the benefit of all.

Cheers,

Thank you for your advice!
I checked classifields and now understood finally that all due to that fee of $100 they want to charge! It is not an issue to pay them if I really want to do any advertising after I begin with my business.
But currently I just can't find any suitable column to put my posy there! I don't want to be let my post goes into "used furniture", "room share" or "business services' (which I neither want nor offer).
Even i put it on a wrong place, i think moderator should give me a reasonable advice or return my text to me. How can I imagine this happen? I always think I moved to a democratic country...

We do not have your text. It was deleted. There is nothing to give back. When you type something on a computer, and then highlight it and hit the delete button, it's gone. Pfffft! - How hard can it be to recreate 10 lines of advertising? :roll: You need more than a democratic country......
