I think we all know that answer to that  :engel:

That's what I figured.  Don't know why they would consider that spam.

That sucks. It's possibly because it's just a link and small sentence or two. I know a couple of boards that have spam control that pick up stuff like that. You could try getting someone on that board to message the mods.

Yep, I'd see what can be done about still allowing the posting.  It seems silly not to permit these, since there is a lot of figures relevant to "Old Hammer", and SteveB's collection really is priceless.  It provides inspiration and motivation!

Which Oldhammer are you referring to, the Oldhammer forum or one of the myriad Oldahammer groups in facebook?

Either way I'd suggest reaching out to  Blue in VT I dont know if he's still around here very much but I believe he's active in the various Oldhammer communities as a moderator and such.

Not much hope there.

I reckon the ban is most likely simply due to Zac's posts being little more than a link, right from the off.

When interacting with folks, find out the issue, and then compromise.

Like maybe providing an explanation to what the link is going towards.

I have a user account there too, but I haven't posted anything in years. Maybe you can ask 023 for help - He is much more active there and has a good reputation I would assume.

I'm active there. I have my Tilean Campaign thread there. (The photos come out better as the whole image appears on the screen - some forums don't do that.)

So, Zac, d'you want me to have a word with someone? Or put a post up mentioning what your project is, who you are and who SteveB is?

I didn't think of this before because I am a humble sort of fellow!

Just got banned from a different forum for the same reason (spam) but I didn't spam as far as I knew. Wondering if its some sort of hacking or malicious software situation with the host.

Ah looks like their was a spambot removed and my IP got dragged with it. What was weird is it said I was banned when I tried to access the site from my computer but could access it just fine inside my work's VPN.
