Hi,

I have a site that is going through a revision called www.system17.com that covers some miniature wargames I like. Just about all of them are covered on this site, although for many of them I actually include more detail. Since I see some people posting links to other sites, I thought I would post mine in the sections of this site that I also cover in mine, such as the Sea of Claws is posted for Man O' War. I have an extensive Man O' War section too but my link never seems to get accepted.

Every time I do this though my link seems to get rejected. Could a mod please tell me why www.system17.com couldn't get posted under a game like Trinity: Battleground, Dougram: Battle of Stanrey, or Vor, and so on? I know my site covers a variety of things but the sections I do complete are definately worth sharing.

I want to be a contributor here, as I think this is a great site, but I feel like I am getting dissed and it is killing my motivation to really get into the community. Hell, I even link BoardGameGeek in my pages as places to get more information from!

Thanks

My guess is that some of your site is not "family" material, and you may be getting rejected for that.

My guess is that there is so much unrelated stuff on your site, the gaming content isn't really obvious enough to justify its inclusion.

Your use of frames is a bit um, overwhelming. Try submitting a link that goes straight to the relevant information, not your home page, not in a frame. Also, there is a link to your site under Man O War. But don't let that stop you from complaining about it.
