Hello.

I've posted a message a short time ago, but I see it has been removed almost immediately. May I kindly ask why it has been removed and what policy of this forum did I possibly violate?

Thanks.

I didn't see your original post, Fabrizio, but your second one contains a link to a web site advertising goods. This isn't allowed, and is probably why your post was removed. If you just post about your bird sightings without using links to external web sites you'll be made welcome here, but not if you try to use the forum to advertise.

I would have expected you to be sent a PM to explain the reason for the posts removal, but I suspect that it is because your first post was advertising your software. I understand that you are offering this for free, but I think we would expect you to make a contribution and become part of the community before doing this. At first sight, it would appear you joined simply to advertise, hence the posts removal. Feel free to join in and once you are making a contribution I'm sure people would be more interested.

Thanks for getting back to me. Frankly speaking, my post was indeed aimed at making people aware of my project - as it's non-profit but community-oriented it can't be promoted with regular ads. As I saw some threads referring to existing commercial stuff (e.g. http://forum.biggonline.co.uk/viewtopic.php?t=6350) I supposed there were no problems. Sorry to have misunderstood. Of course I'll respect the rules here.

Thanks and have a great day.
