Post edited: this is considered advertising for a website. Even if the website is not making money, it still breaks rule #4 because you have a personal interest in it.

I left the link on the other thread, because it didn't seem you were advertising it, only mentioning it because it offers a dating section. That one was borderline, though, and other moderators might have chosen to delete it. Please be careful not to promote that website here. Thanks.

No, it's not MY site. It was created by a group of us. My husband did actually set it up but we have several people as Administrators and we share the cost among us.

My husband and I donate all of our time to the site. We are not selling anything and have nothing to gain. In fact to date it has cost us a few hundred dollars out of our pockets to get it going.

A bunch of us Lymies decided to create it, so we did. Not affiliated with any organization, and it is OUR site, meaning it belongs to all of its members.

Listen, I have no "vested interest" at all. We have over 600 members and have no reason to obtain more....this is a group effort, created by a group of Lyme patients, and if anything my husband and I give and donate a great deal of our time to help others there,as do many of the other members. Not sure how volunteering your time and money to help other Lymies is a "vested interest."  I have no more vested interest than the other 632 members, this is a community group, not owned by me.

There is no reason why I would need to solicit for new members, we have nothing at all to gain. I was only trying to reach out to other Lyme patients and offer them another resource to try and HELP them. Nothing more.

By deleting it you are preventing members here from hearing about a resource they might find helpful. I think that is a shame.  Is there a more appropriate way to let your members know this resource exists?

Just to clarify what may be a misunderstanding, I read Rule #4. I am NOT the website owner.

OK, again just to clarify many members have donated to pay for the site costs, it really is a collaborative effort. We really like to keep it that way, that is how it should be.
