My post in Boxes, Tubes & Bags has disappeared. Did I commit a Faux Pas by posting there?

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Perhaps a perceived violation of the advertising rules?

"While you may something along the lines of:
"Check out my new book, it's available at your favorite dealer" What I don't want to see is: "Buy my new book, I take PayPal and you can find it on my site" or "We are now taking pre-orders for my new product, etc" There is a big difference between the two approaches. The former is making members aware of a new offering and telling them to see their dealers while the latter are both blatant ads. Postings that do not comply will be removed without reason or warning given."

Your topic was in 3 forums. Let's make a deal, the workshop and boxes tubes and bags. Topics should be restricted to just one applicable forum. In any event, it was considered advertising. Let's make a deal is for posts of items no longer wanted and only 1 or 2 of a particular item. The workshop is for discussion and making, repairing or improving an item. Neither or which should be used to sell items.

Dave, I posted in two applicable forums, merely to announce that my product was available. I only included the price because I knew someone would ask. I posted in Workshop to show what I had built and in Boxes, Tubes and bags because it seemed to fit there. I did not post in Let's Make A Deal. Now that both of my posts have been deleted. Can I re-post with no price and just the link to my Facebook page? I was getting good feedback from both forums, which is what I was after.

As long as your face book page isn't selling the item, you can link to it. I would make the post either in latest and greatest or the workshop but not both.

So from other postings I see, I assume I can reference a website or Facebook page but not link to it directly if it has the item for sale? I honestly thought I was following protocol based on the many other postings that I have seen.
