Card Shows, I know every month they hold a Sports Collector's show at my city. You could set up, sell and show off your collection. If you are looking to buy as well that works.

Mods shut it down. They thought it was "self promotion" which is a violation of forum rules.

Without walking on hot coals (figuratively), sharing our collections is indeed a form of self promotion even if it just posting pics. If sharing our PCs is self promotion, and that's a forum rule, then isn't that a contradiction to a sports card forum in the first place? There must have been something else in thread for the deletion necessity. If we couldn't post our collections at all on a forum because we are "self promoting" or "bragging" or "boasting", then the forum would be a super dull place left to the hecklers debating who's favorite team or player is better incessantly. If people were trying to lure buyers indirectly through that thread, then yes, I understand the need for closing it.

Nope. Spoke with the mods. It was deleted for "self promotion". This is the rule they quoted to me:

Rule #2: Absolutely NO referrals or self-promotion of any kind are allowed on the forum unless specifically approved by an admin or mod in advance. This includes posting referral or affiliate links, or asking members to sign up under you for something. No plugs for blogs and/or any other websites; if you would like to cross-promote, please contact us. Personal webpages with a want list are ok (no commercial webpages/links; ie. any webpages that sell, have ads, etc..) This is not allowed even if the promoted site does not directly compete with us.

My LCS does a biweekly trade night, a monthly show so I do my preening there.

Yeah, but you and I and many others have URL text that can be copied and pasted into your browser to see even without actual linking.

But, we are considered personal webpages with no commercial affiliation and definitely not selling or advertising whatsoever. Strictly show and tell PC wise, at least for me.

I agree. But the mods did not.
