    My last thread was deleted. Did a break a rule of some kind? Sorry if so, I was just trying to get some input.. An explanation of where I failed would be helpful so I don't make the same mistake twice.

    Yes, You did. You tried to sell your services with an innocent question as the title :)

    Got it, that really wasn't my intent. Sorry. Is there anyway that I can get the feedback I was looking for? Or shall I just wing it?

    I just looked at the OP's deleted thread.

    Here's the deal: There are often people on the forum
    who try to get around the requirement of applying
    and paying for a Sales or Service thread on BHW.
    What they do is make a thread with a question like,
    "How Much Should I Sell My Ebook For?" or "How Much
    Should I Charge For My Backlink Service?" Then they
    go on to explain what their product or service is and
    hope that some of the members will PM them and inquire.

    What makes it difficult for the staff is that it is nearly
    impossible to know who is asking an innocent question
    versus who is attempting to "covertly" use their thread to
    get sales inquiries from interested members.

    That is why those types of threads are often deleted.

    Yeah, At first I was a little confused. However, after thinking about it some I totally understand. It was a silly thread. I think the service will have value and I'll just have to wing it on the pricing. I can always adjust it as I go. Anyway, I hope to have something ready for proper review in a few weeks.

    Big thanks to the moderators of the forums, that thread was gone within a few minutes of posting. It just goes to show that BHW is a quality forum. Also big thanks to you Wiz, for taking the extra time to post a detailed explanation.

    Long Live BHW!

    You did the same thing, shamelessly trying to promote your fiverr gig.

    Just don't presell your service in threads outside BST.
