    Haven't been on here too long - so not sure of etiquette!!!!!

    Posted some info re an ebay item on a thread (http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/380136/wanted-a-cheap-vodafone-mobile) which was buy it now and has now been removed.

    Don't really understand as the person was looking for a mobile for around £20 and so was the one on ebay

    I know lots of people arent ebay lovers - but I was only being helpful and still dont understand why it is not allowed, when we are all after hot deals.

    Apologies if this is in the wrong section

    There's a simple rule - no links to eBay deals allowed, anywhere!

    I think it probably bolis down to possible self promotion, same as not allowing any amazon market place sellers etc

    But why?

    And it wasnt a direct link - it was the title and item no.

    Because it's eBay. It's an unknown seller, not a trusted company. It could have been you selling it for all the moderators know.

    There really isn't much point debating though - they won't allow eBay links or information pointing to eBay items, simple as that. :w00t:

    EBAY is not allowed,,,The end,,,

    The blanket rule makes the forum easier to moderate.
    Do you really mean big brother state?

    Misc forum, not deals or FS/FT. Also not in response to a deal request, basically.

    Fair enough, but the quotes in my post are stating that no links to Ebay are allowed "anywhere". There are links in the thread I copied, and, potentially, the person posting those links could be selling the item as well! In all probability they're not, but the possibility is there.

    Well, fair point. I read the quotes as being no ebay links in response to deals, but you're right, that's not what they say!

    I'm chilled but like to know the answers to things as opposed to just being told 'no' - I grew up a long time ago and even my kids expect an answer when they are told something

    Shame everything has to be 'monitored' and we adults cant just make decisions for ourselves as lets face it there are a lot of bargains on ebay (ooh brave of me to say it, hee hee) - OK there might be more risk there - but isnt threre a lot of risk on the net anyway with companies going bust etc.

    Didn't want to ruffle feathers - just a simple explanation as opposed to just ' you can't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    (Now where did I put those happy pills. . . . . . )
