Is anyone monitoring this site?

    I made a post a few weeks ago, it didn't show up.
    Re-made the post and it didn't show up
    Emailed support twice with no answer for 2 weeks now.
    What is going on here?
    I post on a few forums with no problems and get support within a few hours.
    I'm not impressed at all with the way this forum is run, I'm out.

    Your problem is that it IS monitored. Your posts were advertising and were moved out of the main forum discussion threads.

    So future posts can be put in the right place the first time, which subforum(s) should DbM's (and other advertising) posts originally have been in?

    I agree with Bonnie. Advertisment shouldn't be allowed in this forum.

    Wrong. There should be a way for a PAYING advertiser to post, maybe in a subforum called "Advertising", it could bring in some advertising revenue for the owner to help defray server maintenance, electricity and bandwidth costs (if they are interested in that kind of thing of course)

    I assume if he was selling something it should have gone in the "Tesla Parts for Sale" forum.

    Exactly!

    And this applies to all commercial operations ... CCI, Al and Ed's, detailers, you name it. Thank you mods.

    That's classified advertising and I don't see why classifieds should not have to help pay for the site?

    Thanks. We're working on coming up with a consistent policy on this and hope to have something soon.
    We're certainly more lenient on people that are legit TMC members rather than those that just show up to try to advertise.
