i posted an ad in the classified/for sale forum last night with some info about my crafts i make. i didn't do ANYTHING spamish at all. i simply posted pictures of my work, and my facebook contact information. this is the second time this has happened, and to be honest i have no clue why. i posted my ad, just like all the other ads i had seen TO MAKE SURE i was doing it right. now i can't figure out how to "make an appeal" because when i click on it, it give me nothing but a list of reasons why it was moved. well NOTHING in my post matched any of those reasons. i have tried to figure out where to contact people on this page [admins. and so fourth] but i have had ZERO luck.

Seems like it was spam..or so they think.

You cannot appeal a spam decision.



The issue is that you, from what I can tell due to join date and lack of posts, seem to be using our forum to try to get business. That's not what we're here for. Established members can advertise their wares because they already bring value to the forum. You need to establish yourself though before you go spamming around links because it makes you look like you're simply here to exploit us.

Don't worry. It happened to me the other day and I've been selling on here for 5 years! Long story short: you have a low post count. You're probably not in the GSL, so people are going to assume you're spam. You're best option would be to make a thread asking if anyone is interested in your product, once you get a reply then you can edit your original post. Once someone comments it can't be sent to spam.

so if you haven't been around a long time, or post a lot,...you are considered a spammer when you post links/ads?

Not true.



And if it was, you telling someone how to cheat the rules wouldn't go over well... EH?

Yes, if you are not a regularly contributing member, it is spam to use this forum just to get business.

How do you do what, become a contributing member?



Post more, answer questions etc. You have practically no posts and you've only been here a couple of months, so far you're not showing you intend to stick around and use this forum for anything other than selling stuff.

are there rules posted for this kind of stuff, because that's slightly unfair. because i don't post a lot, or comment a lot, i am judged...that's pretty harsh.



it was a misunderstanding, i wasn't trying to get over on anyone or anything. had i known i needed to be "established" i'd have never even attempted to post anything.

This a community of mothers/parents and we like to talk, vent, get advice. Its nice to know youre not alone in things and other peoples kids go through the same phases or have the same behavior issues. Some people are nice, others, not so much lol I advise you to utilize the ignore button and never ever make an I hate BG thread/BG bitches thread lol



Once you establish yourself in the community you may try again, I advise using the creation forum.

Yes, there are rules. http://forum.baby-gaga.com/about2012768.html

it is the use of gaga to do free business or otherwise exploit the members of the forum that we're trying to curtail.



You don't think it's fair you don't have a privilege others have had to earn?



That's a bit silly, don't you think?
