  • Hey Steve Machol

    Just to clarify I was not soliciting in my post here:http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?t=94687

    I was simply asking a question, and looking for more info. I would have posted this there but it's closed.

    When you said:

    And Im not asking for FREE.
    The way you worded this indicated you were soliticiting paid services.

      Steve, soliciting means when you push paid services, not ask for them. At least thats the common type that is banned on forums. It's usually against the rules because its just basically spam, no one called for such advertisment, etc. But when you ASK for services, its different because then other people may be involved and it could benifit people.

        Ok I could see how this may have confused the post, but I said it (put it this way) so I can avoid the stupid replies. Like "you need to pay for this type of work" - "Your not going to get this for free," etc. This way I can possibly get a repsonse with some info instead of nonsense replies... I hope Im making sense here? Although this can be taken that way, it's out of context.

        None the less it's ok I was just asking a question that maybe some other forum admins may be able to shed some light on.

        -Thanks Louis

          just keep in mind he doesnt know you, and you prolly dont know him.

          he is just trying to limit people making money off this site

          that is all, he might have been a lil off, but doesnt seem like any harm was done

              If you truly have a problem with this decision by Steve it is best to take it up with him over PM.

                Please read my entire post before you start quoting the dictionary. I was not refering to technicall definitions, but rather the practical usage of the definitions.
