I just had a thread deleted for "promoting things on BGG". The thread contained a link some image files for game tokens that I had made myself from publicly available artwork on Wikimedia.

How exactly is that a promotion? Am I not allowed to upload homebrew material?

Probably the link that did it. If you upload the photos to your geek gallery and then show those, then that's probably not a promotion.

Pete (assumes you're not trying to sell them, because if you are, it's a promotion either way)

So, uh, can a thead be undeleted? Or could an admin tell me what the link was that I had posted?
