  • We're you asking for votes or donations? Anything like that is considered advertising, & is against CM rules. Sorry!

    No, raising money is not against rules, using THIS section of CM to do it is against the rules. You can solicit donations in groups specifically set up for that, with widgets on your home page, in journals, or submit videos to the CM video section. You cannot use the Answers section for it. Don't throw a fit because you asked in the one place it's not allowed (when you were apparently told that, aside from it being in the ToS you agreed to), instead of asking in the half dozen places where it is allowed.

  • You aren't supposed to solicit money for any reason. It's possible that members of answers voted on your question as spam and it was deleted by members and not CM admins.

    And honestly, to leave an online forum because you aren't allowed to solicit money for charity?  That's sort of a silly reason to leave unless that's the only reason you were here in the first place.
