    Hi there,
    Your post provided a link to a commercial grower (overt advertising) in contrary to the terms of this forum usage so the moderators remove it. Now that you know. I think it is for the better ...
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Thanks I will check, but the site I linked to was not a commercial site, it is a forum just like this one.

    I'm not speaking for the brass here, Tindo, but the contest prize was donated by a grower and it was a pretty overt push for that grower's products.

    On some forums that's perfectly fine, but the RVO guys have been burned in the past with wonton self-promotion so they instituted a strict no-promo/no-vendors-mentioned policy. PM's are fine if anyone wants to learn more. You just can't post things that promote another orchid business.

    I understand, I guess I just didnt read where the Orchid was coming from,

    I am a member of the other forum which is holding the contest, but I have nothing to do with the contest itself. I just figured people here would like to participate too.

    But thanks for letting me know what I did wrong. I'll try to be more careful next time.
