I don't understand this forum at all.  Reply with quote  

I don't really know what to say or do in this forum in order to find out how to invest, make money, talk about starting a business or whatever. Due to the terms of service, since I can't really post anything that would be considered spam and fraud.

I think that I got banned for doing just that so I apoligize for that. I don't really know about these forums and what to say and how to do business with other people. I don't want to sound like I'm sending spam or anything. I just want to learn how to operate in these forums without making a fool of myself for not knowing anything about business at all.

I need some help in know what to do and what to say and do. So whatever suggestions that you who are reading this may have, it will be greatly appreciated.

Just ask about what interests you. That is what we are here for, to help each other. If you are saying something incorrectly, we will help you say it the right way. If you want to know about money, investing, saving, or anything else, just ask.

speedlock, I couldn''t find anything related to you being banned, but you can certainly provide me with more details if you want and I can look into it.

If you want to stay within the rules of the forum that is greatly appreciated, some few simply want to promote their own stuff and give nothing in return. You don't sound like you would do that. But, you can always read the forum rules to stay on the safe side...

Speedlock - the best way to fit into a new group is to just watch and listen. Read posts and see how members communicate and interact with each other and then when you're ready to participate, just emulate the style that you see. Every group has a different personality. If you want to fit in, then just be compatible with that personality.

Best wishes and good luck. Cool

Can you be more specific on what you do not understand?

Banned or not banned is not important.
The important things is what the benefit you can get by joining a forum.

If you get banned for the posting you interested to share with others then its likely that the forum is not for you.

If I were you I simply find other forum that suit to my interest, you know three are so many..

That's an easy way out . . . why not stick around and follow some of the advice above until you learn what's up?

Most forums have similar rules. And this forum's rules are pretty lenient with respect to what's said in a post. I suspect any post egregious enough to get a member banned here will likely also get them banned at any other forum.

Correct I agree.

Rules are mostly the same, the different is the forum topic it self. Some forum is strictly warn members for No Spam posting every where, others allowed in a some folders. There is also some forum inviting for Spam, and these kind of forum is also quite well managed and has thousands of members.

You're always better off reading for a while before posting. Even then, some fora are just averse to new people. Some are averse to people who don't put cat pictures in their sigs.

I feel your pain. Sometimes it's hard to tell how to act. That being said, I think this one is fairly forgiving. Limit ads to your sig and boards specifically marked for advertising. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong on this.
