What is needed to post info on track days???

Was told my thread was pulled because I was advertising STT's track days at Bluegrass...

Have asked to let me know how I can do this properly. I have yet to get an answer after 4 days... I know it isn't just one person so, can any mod or website person let me in on how I can do this?

We have a LOT of track day riders on this site and hell, there's at least 5 of the members who are instructors down at BG. I just want guys and gals to know what's going on down there.

STT is not a conflict with any sponsors on this site so, not sure what can be done to make sure it is legit...

Any help please? Events are going to be starting up and people have been assking...

I am not a moderator, but to advertise a business you need to be a sponser, which if things are still the same as when holeshot was a sponser is very reasonable.

After holeshot stopped sponsering the site, I called the mods personally to ask prior to advertising events or sales at holeshot. It may have helped that I was no longer working with holeshot when asking.

Give me your contact info in a PM and I will talk with the mods myself.

But the thing is that there are SEVERAL posts and threads from guys saying Cycle Options is at Putnam, guys asking to get a track day event and needing certain number of riders, Desmo Ohio events and costs, etc.

Not advertising anything but rather stating what is going on. I mean, guys are posting links to ebay and craigslist. This goees against dealers that are sponsors or even the classified section on this site...

I just want to supply info about track days. That's it. No link, just info and cost and when it is happening at Bluegrass. Its local to a LOT of riders on this site...

I would have to agree with you Lizard... I myself have posted about Putnam and Cycle Options etc. with no problems many times. Sounds like they don't think your pretty enough or something.... lol

So....would talking about Putnam be advertising Putnam? Discussing your thoughts on STT be advertising? Hell....would talking about Kawasaki be advertising them too? WTF?

Shhhh! Don't tell anyone. I don't want these events to fill up months in advance.

Better for me if nobody knows...

I think it very well may be that exact thing. I'm going to make another post this weekend and make it as general as I can similar to what Brandon and others have when they advertise Putnam and other events similar.

I just cannot understand why it is an issue. They don't really care for me, but this is somewhat silly...

If u get a chance PM me with the info. (Just in case the post gets deleted again). I'm thinking of doing a few track days this year. I only have one under my belt and the conditions wasn't the greatest.

personally, I can't see why posting info about track days is a problem for anyone. I welcome the information and beleive that 99% of the people here do also. It's not like you are trying to promote a concert or something......it's a MOTORCYCLE event!

I was wondering why the info was gone, and by the way, I passed the info along to the Kentucky Sportbike site, and nobody complained about it there.
