So I don't get it, people post links to contests or other content they want board members to vote on, and those are allowed even if they link to another site. Ive voted for many people in local photography shoot contests or similar things for people to win something.
So I guess my post was deleted because it was marked as spam, when I'm trying to win a photography and ticket contest to a party here. Yes it's a concert/party, but I can't afford tickets. And this party is a connection my friends and I have to my deceased friend.
Basically we have one of the nations best concert venues here. There is a little "museum" here at the amphitheater of world class artists that find it a privilege to play here. I can show pics, it's an incredible venue. I had a friend named Taustin that loved, loved, LOVED this party called Global. His nickname was the Cat in the Hat, and his sister lovingly made him cat in the hat costume to wear to the party. He was so freaking proud of his big tail and white hands and hat, he had red pants and a white shirt too. He identified as the Cat :) Well when Taustin passed away he loved his cat persona so much (Im not talking about a furry type personality... just the fact he was enamored with the Cat in the Hat) he was buried with his costume. Wearing his gloves and had his hands resting on his tail and pants. He wrote a beautiful poem about his experience at this party and this venue. His parents ordered a special headstone with his picture in ceramic wearing the costume, and the entire back of the headstone contains an excerpt about what is left from the party is merely a memory. The part about the memory is the excerpt put on his headstone. Oh yeah, when his family couldnt afford to get him a headstone my ex and I threw a party and all money raised went to funeral and headstone costs. Taustin was supposed to play at that party and so we played a CD of his during his time slot. Do you know how beautiful it is to see hundreds of people dancing to his CD, not talking, some of us crying (as I'm crying now thinking about this), but dancing. His family was invited and they were all crying and said they had no idea their son had such an impact on this world. I feel damn fucking good to be a part of something to give him a proper burial spot. He was buried next to his Uncle and they have a beautiful headstone... complete with his poem and pictures of him.
SO! This is why I posted. The promoters for this party are doing a contest and the question is "What does Global mean to you?" And I posted that pic of his headstone and put a brief explanation that Global is a way to be close to Taustin... to feel him through music. I need votes though... the contest ends tongiht and I just entered last night, I didnt know about it. I asked for votes here and explained that it reminds me of a deceased friend, and it gets marked as spam. I've never spammed the boards with anything. I don't get how someone can post a contest for their kids from different sites and thats okay, but this was removed. I see a lot of posts about people directing people to other websites and such... so I don't get why they aren't flagged and mine is? I don't think they are spamming the boards either... newbies that come onto the board to send you to a different website and dont post anything but those links are spammers.... I don't feel mine was.
So, can someone explain that to me? I really need votes, this really would mean a lot to me to go in a way you all can't understand, not knowing Taustin. I dont have the money to go otherwise. I need to go and be "close" to Taustin, and to not be in a pissy mood over my ex destroying my being, I need to find myself again. And where do I find myself? Out dancing to the music I love. I love to dance. Especially under the stars in a venue musicians dream of playing at from all over the world... I need to connect to the only other boy I've loved beside my ex Tony. And I never was able to tell him, I never WOULD have told him.
Anyways, can someone tell me what is considered spam or not, it's not like I just put up a link and said "GO VOTE!" So yeah. I am not going to post the link now because people will vote it as spam again, so..... tell me what to do where I can let people know without being moderated?
Go ahead and post the link after a few people reply. The spam option will go away after several replies.
Fucking spam happy whores.
My vote my the difference here! Fuck 'em :wink:
What asshole marked THIS post as spam?! You didn't even post anything! Post the link hun..ill vote
Posts the link again it can't be marked as spam. I will vote for you.
None of those spam happy sluts will ever admit to it. Go choke on a dick.
I hate when I go to reply to a post, and it's been removed. Like do you mother fuckers even know what spam is? Someone pleading for you to vote for them is not spam. Spam would be like "COME TO THIS SITE, BUY 1 APPLE IPAD, GET THE 2ND FREEEEE!" Dumbass broads, get a hobby.
Thank you guys! Seriously, I just don't get how people think some stuff is spam. Do you all see how many posts I have... I wouldn't have that much if it was just spam! lol
I'll post a couple links to see which one works because one friend was having an issue, but if you need to know my post is of a headstone, as I said with a poem on it. The only one like it! I think it shows my name too, and it's Jennifer Moulthrop. Any of your SO's or roomies that could vote I'd really appreciate it too! It would seriously mean a lot to win. I can tell you more about what Taustin means to me... like how when I had my head injury me and his sister both were "visited" by Taustin and I believe he is my guardian angel for what happened that night. I can go and explain that if anyone wants.
But here are the links, its all to the same thing but I dont know which one will actually work.
This is the one that I think should work:
If you could see this post, (I put it on public), it should bring you right to the picture too. This is linked from my facebook.
Stupid posts, but anyways, I really, really, really would appreciate any and all votes, and if your friends vote tell them thank you! Your SO's too!
And for those that think it's spam... really, please talk to me and tell me WHY, and look at my post history and see I don't spam shit. :)
Oh, and this link may work too. It redirects you to facebook.
