Hey... so a month ago I received an email from an admin here that I am no longer allowed to share videos my Porsche rebuilding thread because it was considered advertising. I wrote back and said how is it considered advertising; what am I advertising? I've reached out several times and never heard any answer.
I am super confused about this. I've done plenty of build threads before:

Both of those are just albums from the actual build threads so they're easy to share, and I've gotten a lot of positive feedback from them. A little over a year ago, I decided to document my Audi RS2 Upgrade in a timelapse format with a GoPro; I did the whole thing using as many continuous shots as possible, stripped the front end of the car, disassembled the top end of the engine, rebuilt an RS2 turbo, cerakoted everything, put it all back together... it was a cool way to show a complex project and it has over 40k views on youtube so people obviously dig it. Pretty proud of it!
So when I tackled my 911 build... I decided to do a video series to show people what I'm looking at, what I'm confused about (since I have no idea what I'm doing on an aircooled engine and I'd never done it before), and what I'm accomplishing. I'm also trying to be as informative as possible, so if someone else finds themselves with a similar situation, they can pick up on tips/tricks.
My thread is now deleted. What sucks is that I was posting my video updates here, on pelican forums, and on rennlist, and I was getting AWESOME tips at every forum! Some of the best feedback, ironically, was from here on the vortex, a non porsche specific forum.
I guess I don't get it. I'm just some dude. I'm not a SMASH THAT LIKE AND SUBSCRIBE douchebag, I'm just doing a video series on the biggest project of my life, and I was enjoying sharing it with some car communities because it helped my build. I'm not sponsored. I'm not advertising anything.
If I took screen shots of my videos, and posted them as strings of images with captions, that is allowed, but if I just record myself doing it, then it isn't allowed??? It doens't make any sense. I wasn't trying to spam this board, I'm just geeked about cars and boats, and I was trying to share what I am geeked about and hoping to find other people geeked about the same things.
