I think I do. Posting items for sale on this forum, then deleting them if there wasn't any interest and posting the the same item on another forum. By deleting the post here I was trying to abide by the exclusive posting requirement of the forum. Wasn't trying to circumvent the rules, but I can see how it may have looked that way. If that wasn't the reason I don't understand why.
If you did things in reverse, you'd have been fine. That is to say- post your items in other forums. If you don't get any nibbles, delete those (and they must be deleted, not merely "closed" yet still visible), then and only then, post those items here, and leave the ads up here.
Lastly, Classifieds is provided as a courtesy to participating members. I can't make you post in other sections of the forum, but if you do what I've asked of you and if you contribute in other sections of the forum from time to time, you'll be fine.
