Wanted threads being marked as spam...

Hi guys,

Now I checked the rules regarding wanted threads and they are allowee in specific model sections of the site. Im currently looking for a turbo specific to around 4-5 cars models with slight variance between specific turbo options but most carry similar turbos.

Anyway as the only way I can really see someone spotting my request is by posting in each and every particular applicable car model section to highlight what I am after to the right audience I set about making posts.

My posts have since been removed by mods for being "spam", which I kindly totally disagree with. How am I meant to get a 500 owner to see the thread if it's in the bravo section, a linea owner to spot it or even an arbarth 500 or grande punto driver owner. It is unlikely they browse all sections of the site as they probably only really checkout what is relevant to the their own garage.

What is wrong with posting in each model section as per the rules? When spam is useful to no one, having my post in each section is clearly the best approach here and useful to the owners of each model that may have one sitting around doing nothing!

Please suggest how to proceed with my request efficiently...

I would appreciate it if deleted threads were restored at least till people have had an opportunity to contact me regarding the matter.

Re: Wanted threads being marked as spam...

Well hows about you do the courtesy of waiting for me to reply to you PM before posting yet another thread?
Crazy idea I know but hey,just throwing it out there.
You posted 3 threads. I deleted 2. The remaining thread I bounced around the 2 other sections leaving a redirect back to the existing thread meaning its visible in 3 sections.
A small courtesy to you.
Now of course you posted another thread without awaiting my reply.
I usually work very long hours but today had a presentation and am home early. Not fast enough for you it appears.

Re: Wanted threads being marked as spam...

Hi custard,

I wasn't moaning at/about you ... another mod appeared to delete the other threads but without any message. I noticed you were on the forum bright and early in response to my "spamming" so I can only imagine the hours you usually have to work!

Lots of things on here myself and trying to get things sorted asap is my style I guess. Sorry if these is seen as being impatient... I wasn't expecting a reply by PM to be honest after the initial cleanup operation you'd done .

I appreciate what you did bouncing the other thread around... I just saw the thread as being "moved" in other sections, I then realised I needed to address the abarth models & sections of the forum.

At the point of writing the above message. I could only see one thread in the bravo section of the forum after another mod deleted my extra posts along with others it seems.

If this could perhaps be done for the other model categories I would sincerely appreciate it!

I wish to appeal to owners of the following:


Abarth Fiat 500 - https://www.fiatforum.com/abarth-500/
Abarth Grande Punto - https://www.fiatforum.com/abarth-grande-punto/
Bravo II 1.4 T-jet - https://www.fiatforum.com/bravo/ (already present)
500 - https://www.fiatforum.com/500/
Grande Punto - https://www.fiatforum.com/grande-punto/
Linea - https://www.fiatforum.com/linea/

Thankyou for what you did again, it is much appreciated. .
