Why was my post topic 'Free comment on your next post' in the Off Topic section

  1. I need a good answer

  2. A Moderator moved your thread to the Off-Topic Forum because that's where such a thread belongs. We have forum here for specific purposes and the Off-Topic Forum is for posting threads that don't "fit" into the other forums.

    Examples:
    (1) The Support Forum is for posting technical questions that pertain to wordpress.com software use and policies.
    (2) The Ideas is for posting ideas and suggestions for WP.com Staff to consider when assessing new features, etc. that may be introduced.
    (3) The Questions Forum is the best place to ask a question for which no answers can be found in the WP.com support documentation or in the forum searchbox.
    (4) The Showcase Forum is for blog promotion posts.
    (5) The CSS Customization Forum is for sharing tips, and tricks, and helping each other out with CSS.
    (6) The Widgets Forum Widgets is for posting about wordpress.com widgets and approved third party widgets aimed at using them to their maximum.
    (7) The Off-Topic Forum is for posting everything not covered in the other forums.

    I'm not clear on why you are reacting this way. Could it be that you intended to have your thread placed on the front page of the forum for the purpose of promoting your own blog? I'm wondering because your emphasize "free commenst". Well, no one pays for comments; they are all freely given and freely received so wondering why you emphasized "free'' is what I'm doing now. If promoting your blog by sounding like you are giving away something that's usually paid for is your approach to blog promotion then the Moderator can move it again to the Showcase Forum. No harm done.

    That's exactly why the thread was moved because the thread tone was "blog promotion"

    @jollof I gave you a reason why I moved the thread I will repost it here

    Moderation Notice: This thread has been moved to the showcase forum where blog promotion threads belong.

  4. @T3ck
    Please move this thread as well.

  5. Moved to Off Topic:

  6. thanks for the explanation. I obviously posted in the wrong forum :) The content of that thread did not in anyway attempt to promote my blog or encourage people to view mine. I only asked for Blog URLs so I could visit and post comments. Will watch the tone of my topic titles next time.

  7. Best wishes to you for happy blogging. :)

  8. @jollof Mistakes happen please keep in mind that anytime you ask for members to leave their URL that those kind of threads should be posted in the "Show Case" forum. ; )

    Happy Blogging

    T3CK,
